The house that taekwondo built
Pabby and I sat up working on the store last night as M. cleared out for a tax trip north, it was that hollow Sunday night feeling one gets when not everything in life is as it should be. // We shared that as best we could--and then P. on the books for consignment payouts--and me listing the last of the JP beat collection...lots of value in there...think have found a workaround for the Slum Books non-import issue, maybe, won't know 'til I try it...anyone have QB (aka Slum Books) discs for Windows? // Also, work adding up the income and expense accounts to arrive at a raw figure for taxes must begin. // We have had the biggest month since Oct 2008 in sales, largely due to new inventory listings that've been sitting in the basement closet for the past six months. I don't recall being lazy, however! // Also, we did finally make my goal--to do 30% Plus of our business on sites other than Amazon (means keeping more of our own take, Amazon is greedy! no loyalty there!).

On the tech writer front, got lots of small backlog articles that I hope to get done this week--feelin' a bit like a leaf in the wind as assignments come in off-the-cuff and then they seem to be ...forgotten in time. Also, the thrice rescheduled Release Notes process meeting is tomorrow morning. //

More trips down memory lane to get this Saturday started with my absolute contemporary, Jimmy Somerville...born three months before me in the UK...a contemporaneity made more personal by my friendship with another Glaswegian & martial arts instructor. Of course, the Bronskis were initially just as well known for "reclaiming" gay disco anthems from the "divas" who had by this time performed ritual disavowals over (then) HTLV-III (sic)...Donna Summers particularly. And since those songs come couched in their original "subtexts" easier for them to log into the UK Top 20 with several hits and at least penetrate renascent American dancefloors (at that time, largely only in gay bars anyhow). Clearing the way for an industrial disco document of liberation--informed by and quoting Joy Division and representing a step towards IDM in general--this was not your older sister's disco.
