Wait! This not be as morbid as that sounds.
Do You Remember?
Yesterday I heard the news that Grant Hart, drummer and co-lead singer of one of my favorite bands, Hüsker Dü, died. He was 56 and died from cancer.
If you are old like me and needed and outlet for rage the way I did back in the 1980s Hüsker Dü’s music was a great outlet. Nine years ago in a blog post I mentioned that my first girlfriend described Hüsker Dü’s music as “mind mutilating”; I described it as liberating.
I guess I have reached the age where I should start expecting my peers to start dying off…
I planned to post two photos taken Wednesday while chopping up branches. However, I just realized that I am not using my mobile blogging rig, so selecting the URL from Flickr’s website is nigh on impossible.
Da Da Da, Another One Bites The Dust
Another longtime “XYZ Corp”er resigned this week, thankfully not from the mobile team. As I sat in my stand-up meeting, yes I see the irony, I thought of this timeline of the meeting’s membership (full names avoided to respect the innocent):
April: me, P1, A, M, P2, E, C
June: me, P1, A, M, I, C
August: me, P1, I, C
September: me, N, I, C
Quite a lot of turnover for such a short period.
In an effort to clear up some space on my iPhone I deleted the Instagram app. I reloaded the app, which then required me to log in again, however all attempts failed. I’ve deleted that app and am taking an Insta-break.
Have a great weekend. I’m headed to North Carolina. Tonight’s stop is Charlotte where I hear that they have this great bar called “Taco Mac”.
