Right in the middle of some serious work at arbor I took off to
go see Frank Black in Detroit. I'm sure I'm a bad person for this, but
I've put in so many more late nights and days than most that I didn't
feel the least bit bad. Frank was good. Of course I went to see him
because he was in the Pixies. I love the Pixies. Frank's good on his
own, and with the Catholics, but none of it compares. He played 4 Pixies
songs and the crowd went nuts for each one. It was wonderful.
We actually had a WDA quorum out at the Magic Stick for Frank. There were
seven of us there, and certainly no larger group gathered that night.
Unfortunately I had to be the grumpy old man and go straight back to work
after the show.
It was a massive all-nighter Thursday into Friday. Somewhere around 3/4ths of
the coders were in the office through the dawn hours. Most excellent. Staying
up with 10 other people is much more interesting than staying up by yourself.
