THE SEVEN SECRETS OF HIGHLY SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE

1. Private school
2. Legacy Ivy admission
3. Nepotism hire
4. Seed capital from family
5. Club memberships
6. Personal assistant, nanny, ghost writer
7. Journalists who ask, "What's your secret?" and uncritically publish the answer

Here’s a rough mix (w. scratch fox) of a song I co-wrote 25 years ago, that is perhaps being resurrected & finished at long last: music.metafilter.com/8730/Fire

Moods:

1. High on Benadryl.
2. Clogged full o’ snot.

Drove 4 hours last night to go caving in the middle of Edwards county. 5 miles from the pavement & the cell service is immaculate. 😕 I kinda wish it didn’t work out here. Oh, also, it’s cold! (That’s not really a complaint)

Mind Field is a Carbon 7 song that I think is one of our best.

So I’ve been having range issues with my Bluetooth mouse & my MBP since forever, & it finally occurred to me to google it(duck duck go it) this morning, & the first suggestion I came across was to remove the battery cover from the bottom. Bam. Wish I’d looked this up 3 years ago. 🤦🏻‍♂️

Ha, putting your money where your mouth is means digging ditches in Texas caliche all morning. I hope my kidneys survive- I’m sweating out all the fluids.

Here’s a wonderful blog post from an ex-Mefite about the meaning of community: middleclasstool.com/blog/2019/

Cavers are my community & the closest thing I have to brothers & sisters.

Coffee time. Going to help a friend upgrade the living space he’s made available for another elderly, frail friend who had to leave his land in the country because he couldn’t live alone. No real family- cavers are his de facto family & he’s being cared for well by them in his last months. This is a strong community. This guy pretty much taught me mutli flash cave photography 25 years ago.

Goofing around with Prisma - this is the floor at work, where I am waiting for ink to dry. Exciting!

I don't know what this site is, but I'm flattered that they used one of my photos in their article, even though it's not even in the state they say it's in:

More pics from Oakwood Cemetery in Austin. Mostly shot black & whit film, which is off being developed

Big music listener, not much of a movie watcher. We watched Cool Hand Luke for the first time in years last night & I just caught that John Melloncamp totally ripped a line of dialogue from it for Scarecrow.

“Sorry, Luke - it’s just my job. I hope you understand.”
“Callin’ it your job don’t make it right, boss.”

New day, new job, new band, new gigs, change is everywhere & it all seems good right now.

I don’t have a picture to add, but the bread went really well with the beef stew I made today. Nice to have a long enough weekend to actually cook.

I made bread! It’s a little yeasty, but it’s not too crumbly or gooey in the middle like the last recipe I tried.
