OT: Life Intrudes On Blog: The ‘R’ Word Rears Its Ugly Head

‘R’ as in Restructuring, where either the department you work for or the whole company gets eliminated.

My apologies for being so unproductive. Well, it’s the fourth time in my life I am going through this at work. And while it’s just my department disappearing and not my job along with it (like the first two times) the upcoming changes won’t be good (are they ever?) and I need some time to deal with this situation.

Thank you.

        Where is the Van Halen show from?

        • Bm said:

          I believe it’s from the Pasadena Civic 1977 entitled “Die Laughing”.
          1 of 50 copies pressed.

        Well the V.H. I’m talkin ’bout is a 2lp called”This is Joe” FROM SEATTLE ’77 on CLEAR VINYL – I think it’s pretty extinct!!ALSO, HANDS DOWN THE MOST THOROUGH INFO FROM THE GOLDEN AGE OF BOOTS BY MR. S.CRACKERBOX -where can I make a donation !Loads of fun this site !!!!!!!

        • Thanks – no need for donations though. I still plan to present the label this release was part of, recordings made around Seattle in 1978 -1980, I believe, with matrix #s starting with 78/79-xxx (not to get mixed up with the K&S later releases that also started with 79).

        • I just acquired that release about 2 months ago Carlo.
          I’ve got pictures if you need them.
