  • Mood:

Bob Franke: 1 - Bad Mood: 0

Today rather sucked rocks for most of the day. Apart from various crappy news stories and several members of my f-list suffering from awful situations, a particularly unwise non-developer on my project decided to "fix" a broken SQL query in a module I originally wrote. Not only did the "fix" break things even more, but said non-developer also managed to:
(a) not test the "fixed" query
(b) not notice that the SSIS package that uses the query errored out when executed
(c) not notice that the output file that the SSIS package is supposed to generate didn't get generated
(d) declare that the "fix" worked
and (e) request that the "fix" be promoted to the pre-production environment!

However, this evening made up for today, for I got to see and hear Bob Franke perform live at the coffeehouse run by my church, the First Parish Church of Stow and Acton. He's a splendid singer-songwriter, well known for tunes like "Hard Love" and "For Real". He's also a tremendous performer, with a gorgeously smooth voice and complete comfort with his material.

And that's just what I needed after a truly crappy day: really good live music.

There's a hole in the middle of the prettiest life
So the lawyers and the prophets say
Not your father nor your mother
Nor you lover's gonna ever make it go away
And there's too much darkness in an endless night
To be afraid of the way we feel
Let's be kind to each other
Not forever but for real
