    Every time I see "In Times New Roman" it reminds me of how some high level person at my last company talked negative about Times New Roman and I started putting all my emails, spreadsheets, etc. in that font. This week in "How to Get Behind in Corporate America"

    This is tough. I listened to a lot of music this year and every year. Problem is that a lot of artists I dig released new albums that were just okay. Here are some that I genuinely listen to regularly.

    Gaslight Anthem - History Books
    Brad - In the Moment
    The National - both new ones
    Obituary - Dying of Everything

    Maybe there are others that I am forgetting, but I've mostly been listening to older albums.

    I am going to have to add two stylistically different albums to my list.
    1. Horrendous - Ontological Mysterium
    Interesting combination of different metal sub-genres that all work together.
    2. Gabe Lee - Drink the River
    Really great Americana folkiness. This guy should be more known.
    1991- Hollywood Palladium, California with Temple of the Dog, Soundgarden, and Alice in Chains -RIP Magazine Show Oct. 6th
    1992- Lollapalooza, Irvine, California
    Nothing since then. I suck.
    2016- Fenway Park, Boston - Both glorious nights
    2022- Oakland Night 2
    2024 Sacramento, CA
