…that there *is* no advice….
“No, but you might want to take my wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee……..”
Brian May, Eddie van Halen, Alan Gratzer (REO Speedwagon), Phil Chen, Fred Mandel (sessionista), Roger Taylor(Queen).
But if you
really want to enjoy yourselves, have a listen to the full recording from the beginning.
Group of high class musicians noodling around until all the instruments are (sort of) lined up and WHAM, the power chord…
This is Schuld, population of around 750 and about 90 minutes drive north from here.
At some stage, Ahr river made an oxbow, the sediment solidified and over the last 1000 years folks built on it.
Precipitation of 200ml in less than 24 hours.
The river a bit further downstream went from under 1 metre to somewhere north of 6 metres. That’s when the level measuring device either lost power or was washed away.
And the river reverted to its old route through the village and washed away 6 houses.
Plus damage to every other property.
And this is just ONE village.
Over 100 dead and over 1000 missing, although we’re hoping that they’ll just be “uncontactable” with power out and cell towers down over the whole region.
We tried to deliver clothing and crockery to the local fire station for the 40′ truck they’d hired to get stuff to the thousands of people who have lost absolutely everything.
Next fire station.
Try again tomorrow.
Ever wondered how your VP, EVP etc got into the position in the first place. Well in our demanding times the solution is to give more than 100%. This is how they do it.
From a strictly mathematical viewpoint it goes like this:
What makes 100%? What does it mean to give MORE than 100%? Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%? We have all been to those meetings where someone wants you to give over 100%. How about achieving 103%? What makes up 100% in life?
Here’s a little mathematical formula that might help you answer these questions:
If:A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z is represented as:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.
H-A-R-D-W-O-R-K 8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98% and K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E 11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96% but, A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E 1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100% and, B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T 2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 = 103% and, look how far ass kissing will take you. A-S-S-K-I-S-S-I-N-G 1+19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7 = 118% So, one can conclude with mathematical certainty that while Hard work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there, it’s the Bullshit and Ass kissing that will put you over the top.
His taillights flickered as he pulled up to the truck stop
The same old crowd was hangin’ out again tonight He said, “Fill up my tank while I go check my load It feels like it’s shifting all around”
He was the kind of man, do all he could
Above all he had integrity But he was so young And on a ten city run In love with a truck stop girl
As he went inside, he was merrily greeted
By the girl with whom he was in love She held out a glass and said, “Have another This is the last time we can meet”
With her hair piled up high and a look in her eye
That would turn any good man’s blood to wine All his eyes could see, all his eyes could see Was the stares from all those around him
He ran out to the lot, and he climbed into his rig
And drove off without tightening down It was a terrible thing, to see what remained Of the rig that poor Danny was in
But he was so young and on a ten city run
In love with a truck stop girl
But he was so young, and on a ten city run
In love with a truck stop girl
If you haven’t seen this, you should.
Now you know why he’s so good. It’s not a show – he’s really like that…
