  1. Dave, congrats on the new gig.

  2. Derek says:

    Yeah, congrats Dave. I’m not sure about anybody else, but you had me a little worried there for a while. It didn’t seem like you were enjoying life very much.

    I wonder what the name of that unnamed podcast was, hmmmm. Just kidding, I was talking with a friend of mine and said that if you mention my show anymore then I was going to start owing you some ad money or something. 🙂

    Thanks guys. I did have a pretty serious case of burnout and exhaustion that was sucking some of the energy from life. This involves some pretty radical lifestyle shifts but when it is done my work life should be better segmented from the rest of my life. The theory is that this should leave me in better position to do shows and things like that. We Shall See.

  4. Hi Dave,

    I’m with you on that — my very best days are often the days I quit my job. I think the dopamine really kicks in on those days…

    Good luck and have fun on the new job!

    Congrats Dave on the shift, and it’s especially great that while you do have to start actually physically commuting, you don’t have to move (Yet Again).

    Personally, while I’m a smartass like you and just as independent minded, I prefer to live inside huge corporate beasts. Mostly because it affords me the ability to get a lot done both inside and outside of The Job, for some reason.

    FYI, FWIW, I’m inching towards publicly admitting that I have a blog: . There’s not a whole lot there (lots planned or drafted though), and posts are extremely infrequent, so subscribe to the RSS feed …

    Hey Dave, you said you didn’t know who Kay Hanley was? She was the former lead singer for Letters to Cleo. She also has a solo album out. Good stuff. She is one of my favorites.

    Congrats on the new gig. Take it from one who knows, if you can still come home for lunch and dog check-outs, your commute is still about zero, and I’m appropriately envious.

    And, please don’t have such a zero-tolerance policy for playing previously played songs on the show. Many of them are part of the show’s roots, and deserve to have another day in the lineup from time to time, IMO.


  8. Chris Cooper says:

    While I agree about the 1st,2nd and 3rd best days of job, the worst days have to be from the time you give notice to the time you leave. I’m in that stage “Orbiting” at my current client. When I’m not sitting around aimlessly staring at the screen, they have me doing “knowledge transfer” to the corporate wiki.

    Oh the agony!
