Work, The Wall, and Music

Even though I enjoy my profesion. I like developing software. It's often very enjoyable. However, sometimes
I get really fed up with the whole thing. Sometimes work just sucks the fun out of everything.

A few things I have come to realize over the years:

  • Every project will be poorly spec'd out. You will never get all the requirements.

  • Every project has a dead line that in no way reflects how long it will actually take to get the work done.

  • Never believe it when your manager says that things will be better handled in the future.

Pink Floyd - The Wall
What an amazing movie. I have seen it several times now and everytime I watch the movie or listen to the album it affects me. Something about the story really hits home. I think we have all spent too much time building our own walls.

Got some new CD's recently that are worth mentioning.

Reverend Horton Heat - Space Heater
Wow! I had heard of them, but I never even thought I might like them. I can't wait to get back to the Used CD store and get more of their albums.

Southern Culture on the Skids - Zombified
I have and enjoy "Dirt Track Date". This album is just as much fun to listen to.

David Bowie - Reality
Another great disc from the always great Bowie.

A Perfect Circle - Thirteenth Step
Double WOW! As good as, if not better than "Mer De Noms".

Current Music: Spock's Beard "The Light"

Monty Python's Meaning of Life

Why are we here, what is life all about?
Is God really real, or is there some doubt?
Well tonight we're going to sort it all out,
For tonight it's the Meaning of Life.

What's the point of all these hoax?
Is it the chicken and egg time, are we all just yolks?
Or perhaps, we're just one of God's little jokes,
Well ca c'est the Meaning of Life.

Is life just a game where we make up the rules
While we're searching for something to say
Or are we just simple spiralling coils
Of self-replicating DNA?

What is life? What is our fate?
Is there Heaven and Hell? Do we reincarnate?
Is mankind evolving or is it too late?
Well tonight here's the Meaning of Life.

For millions this life is a sad vale of tears
Sitting round with really nothing to say
While scientists say we're just simply spiralling coils
Of self-replicating DNA.

So just why, why are we here?
And just what, what, what, what do we fear?
Well ce soir, for a change, it will all be made clear,
For this is the Meaning of Life - c'est le sens de la vie -
This is the Meaning of Life.

Tattoos for everyone.

I have been getting a new Tattoo for the last few months. Still have another trip before its finished enough to show a picture.
I'm really happy with how its going. If you live in the Charlotte area and your thinking about getting some ink, you should check
out Nikki's Tattoo Studio. One of my co-workers has gotten two
tattoos there and he is just as happy as I am.
