    If I remember correctly, Wilson is in the no Fleetwood Mac camp.

    Early FM (with Peter Green, without the fluff folks) was a serious blues band that cranked.



    Then, they went all soft pop suck with Lindsey, Stevie and Christine.

    I miss that camel that lumbered through the office yelling, "Hump Day!"

    Big hit in cube farms.

    So, as I expected, our CEO is somewhat walking back the degree of post-COVID remote flexibility advertised. It will still be up to individual managers to set flexible work arrangements. They specifically expanded their search and advertised the position I'm in now as remote flexible so I have it in writing but I'm also a 90 minute drive to the office outside Baltimore if I need to get in. There are people who have already or are in the process of moving. Wondering how they are feeling. They got their boss' approval but the CEO definitely just said they'd like to return to some level of pre-term normalcy.

    Suspect this will be happening in offices across America. Our Phase 1 20% back-in-office target isn't until July so still a long ways to go in all this.

    Cant stand:
    1) Steely Dan
    2) Hall and Oates
    3) just about every band since the mid 90s
    4) hip hop and rap

    When listening to the radio while driving, my reaction time in hitting the mute button is milliseconds if any of this crap comes on.

    And get off my lawn, or Im turning the sprinklers on again.

    Just make sure it is on your day. Here in SA, during drought restrictions that can earn fines up to 1k.

    Guess they didn't do much to optimize real estate expenses in the last year. We shed some leases for additional buildings in this area, so no longer have the same office capacity as before.

    Very Mitch Hedbergian of you. I approve.

    Musical acts I can't stand:

    As I've already mentioned, Neil Young.


    Not a fan (but Neil Young is the only one that makes my want to hit somebody):
    Bob Dylan
    Fleetwood Mac
    Journey
    most of the '80s hair metal bands

    Side category - Songs that you used to like but you have now heard way too many times and you never want to hear them again*:

    Bohemian Rhapsody
    Sweet Home Alabama
    Jack and Diane



    * ok, maybe not never, but you'd be perfectly happy with once a year or less

    Most of the hair band music and rap Inused to listen to back in the day. When I get nostalgic every few years is about all I can take now.

    I love me some Hall and Oates. Especially their early Blues stuff that you have probably never heard. And, I'm sorry, but how could you NOT like Steely Dan?!? Kid Charlemagne? Deacon Blues? That's some mellow stuff, Dude!

    Most over-played bands on the radio right now:

    Queen
    Bon Jovi
    Prince
    Tom Petty

    My radio stations here seem to play a disproportionately large amount of Billy Joel and Elton John. Both perfectly fine in small doses.

    If I wanted something that mellow, I would just try to get my Doctor to prescribe some valium.

    I'm a little bit of a crazy person: I still buy music. It benefits the artists far more substantively and directly than the pittance in royalties they get when someone plays their work on Spotify or similar, and I have all the stuff I like at my direct disposal. This is one of those personal hills I'll defend.
