    “We got six terabytes of information, and they were was no real way we could review all of that data in the time period allowed before trial,” [Dratel] said.

Should've used the FBI.

Getting ready to purchase the play-through game "Inside" on Xbox One after two people independently recommended it to me.

Oh, this is the Limbo people. I'm going to have to check this out. If you like indie games, Beginner's Guide was also pretty great.

Haha, hey! Thanks vince. Starting in the spring, declared major of economics, will have two years left to complete. I'm so excited for school.

Due date for my first child is 2 months and 2 days away. I felt perfectly fine right up until a few days ago and now I feel vastly under prepared, despite taking an entire weekend class with my wife and us both having stable jobs. I think the fact that we also have THREE cats and a PUPPY in the equation is making more nervous about any potential sleep in the near future. I just don't operate well without sleep.

Despite having my stable job that I enjoy, I was alerted to a potential opportunity with a start-up a year from now in a CFO or similar type role on the completely opposite side of the country. It would be double my current pay, but obviously I'm a bit risk averse at the moment. Current job has great benefits, pay that I'm comfortable with, and I'm just now getting my hands around the inner workings of this industry.

Also, it's hard to get into the Christmas spirit when it's 55 and foggy outside here in the mid-Atlantic, but I'll be damned if the Vince Guaraldi Trio doesn't do the trick.

A friend did a volunteer medical trip to Peru this past year. Interesting tidbit I came across for those who've never heard - if you turn these pictures on their side, some of the features of a face can be seen. The tallest mountain is the nose.

Granted, the following painting was used with a little creative license.

I didn't notice that until you posted it. It's interesting to see this. There used to be a rock formation in New Hampshire, US, that bore a striking resemblance to an "Old Man of the Mountain", which ended up being it's name by residents of the state.

This is a composite photo of that mountain. Unfortunately, the face portion fell off due to natural causes a few years ago.

More like my life according the Sarbanes-Oxley act. Auditing should be... interesting.

I've supported two products that get money because of Sarbanes-Oxley (ClearCase and BladeLogic). You won't be short of work, so give yourself a trip somewhere weird before you get started.

Haha yeah it will be a short-lived break... once the transcript is finalized, I'll be neck deep in studying for the CPA. I just keep telling myself it'll be worth it.

I probably have to go with Summerteeth as my favorite album. So many good ones on there -- I kinda go through cycles of which songs on the album I'm loving. Definitely going to check out the Cline video though, thanks for the share.

Glad you like it! I'll be sure to post more standup.

vince  ·  2084 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Wilco-"A Shot in the Arm" from "Summerteeth"

Man, what a great album. Another favorite of mine on there is "When You Wake Up Feeling Old"

thenewgreen  ·  2084 days ago  ·  link  ·  

I love that song too. During the Hubski Podcast on music bgood79 was asked to name a favorite song and out of thin air he mentioned that one.

What's your favorite Wilco Album? I have to go with Foxtrot but I really, really love Summerteeth. It was extremely influential to me.

You should check out this Nels Cline video that bgood79 posted a while back. It's him talking about his guitars/gear and if your a fan of music in general you'll appreciate it but if you're a Wilco fan you'll really dig it.
