Big Rock Show
I have an idea for a post about coping with and embracing the suffering we all go through, but I had to go out tonight. And I'm not sure the idea is fully developed anyway, so I'll work on it tomorrow.
Tonight I went to see a band (who is a client of mine) called Fear Factory. I've worked with them on and off for over 10 years. It's funny how the same people are still around, but now we are all talking about our kids.
I ran into a guy who I hadn't seen in 8 years. He's a sound engineer (one of the best I think), and the last time I saw him we where both working on the tour from Hell - everyone in the band hated each other, the band was firing their management, crew members where skipping town with cash, hotel rooms where getting trashed (that stopped being cool a long, long time ago), and a whole slew of other random silliness.
Me: Hey Dude, how have you been?
Him: Oh Sh*t! What are you doing here?
Me: Doing some stuff with Fear Factory.
Him: You still working in this BS business?
Me: Yeah but so are you.
Him: Fair enough.
Me: Have you talked to any one from (the tour from Hell) lately?
Him: No way.
Me: Me either.
Him: So what else is going on?
Me: Had a kid, here check out the pictures.
Him: Cool, I had heard about that, let's see em....and dude, why are your legs shaved?
I'll be back on topic tomorrow.
