Happy Thursday <<First Name>>
I hope you had a wonderful holiday and New Year. We were supposed to head down to New York to see family, but it was an abbreviated trip due to multiple positive covid-tests in the family. So, we spent the past few weeks lying super low.
While Covid is never good, it forced us to hit the brakes and relax. I read The Storyteller by Dave Grohl. The next book up is Kings of Crypto by Jeff John Roberts. I watched the first season of Mindhunter on Netflix, a show about studying the psychology of murderers by the FBI with my wife Sherri. With my interest in sports cards, I opened up a box of Flux basketball cards and pulled a super rare case hit of Lebron James (Full Capacity SSP), which I subsequently sold on eBay as I have little interest in that particular card.
If you are a Nirvana/Foo Fighters/Dave Grohl fan, the Storyteller book is a pretty solid read. I am a fan of DG and met him once in Park City, so I wanted to dive into the book because I feel a particular connection to him and his work. I also went to the opening of the Sound City documentary in New York courtesy of my brother back in 2013. The book is a quick read full of interesting stories. He name drops a ton which usually is not my thing, but that’s OK; it’s Dave Grohl after all; his life is surrounded by folks like Paul McCartney, Joann Jett, and Elton John.
Like many of you, I’ll be assimilating back into the work schedule this week. Wish me luck! :)
