Work ethic

Last night I was at my computer until 3am working on a project to benefit a recently deceased friend. He and I shared a lot of similar traits in terms of our work ethic (work/eat/work/sleep/work) and our love of coffee. Sometimes these two beautiful things mesh. After two hours of sleep, I woke up and Read More…

As much as I hate doing this…

It finally came down to the point where I have to ask. I got an email from Switzerland to come for treatment for my cancer. This is awesome news…until I realize…holy hell. I have to pay for that! A couple of my friends and co-workers encouraged me to set up a Go Fund Me page, so Read More…

I have to leave this somewhere…

It’s has a pop-out player so you Read More…

Holy hell I hate technology

So, last week in the torrent of streaming radio mayhem, my mobile decided to tank. My display started acting crazy and so I called insurance, had a new phone shipped to me and then started dumping stuff and backing things up. I got my new phone on the 30th and figured I would deal with Read More…
