The local public radio station does a Sunday night blues show from 6pm til past my bedtime. It is quacking awesome. The DJ is a total blues head, throwing the backgrounds of the songs or curating sets of an artist/theme/style. I know blues is a really niche genre, but the music and the thought behind the "mixtape" is excellent. Classic blues going back to Robert Johnson all the way to more contemporary shiz.
And Sunday night blues is a great way to ease out of the weekend (especially when you're dutifully bound to not watch GoT tonight)
When I was at a conference in Saratoga last week, a coworker and I toyed with the idea of seeing a SPAC show. Then we realized the only option while we were there was Nickelback. (We didn't go, in case you weren't sure)
I like to raise my hand for way too much, so on Thursday I have my first meeting for a newly formed Performance Evaluation Committee. For those of you in work environments with a fixed performance evaluation process, can you give me any feedback on yours? Do you particularly like or not like any part of the process? The timeline, the way it's submitted, the types of questions or the ways that they are asked, rating scales, its usability across departments, etc. Feel free to PM me or whatever. Thanks!
I try to say goodbye and I choke Try to walk away and I stumble Though I try to hide it, it's clear My world crumbles when you are not here Goodbye and I choke I try to walk away and I stumble Though I try to hide it, it's clear My world crumbles when you are not here
I've never been on reddit. Am I living under a rock?
Reddit is total shiz unless you actively curate your experience. The default subreddits are all worthless.
But there can often be cool communities. im a mod on the grateful dead subreddit and it's mostly just old heads talking about old shows and various side projects of band members. Lots of the science, history, and philosophy subs are actively moderated and highly insightful. And the CFB subreddit is huge, but mostly very informative and fun. The baby elephant gifs sub is literally just gifs of baby elephants.
Sometimes cool things happen like today someone posted a pic of rufio with Dustin Hoffman and Robin Williams at from the hook wrap party and the actor who played rufio showed up to give the backstory.
It is the fourth most visited domain on the internet, so really you could be considered living under a rock, but 95% of the content...you aren't missing much.
I hate that song, but I guess it's better than a fratboy led chant of Sweet Caroline or some lame fn Journey tune. :ugh:
I thought this new Russian Pyramid/Lighthouse Satellite thing was pretty cool. It will be the second brightest object in the night sky for the next 30 days if it passes somewhere you can see it. Probably some light pollution but whatever. It would still be cool to see. I haven't seen any crazy shit like that since the Space Shuttle and Space Station passed overhead 15-20 years ago.
