Wow, it's almost the end of 2009...we're really in the future now.

Things are afoot in Flad Manor. I think changes are in the wind. In addition to my work at Dakota Communities and Vega Productions, I think you may be looking at the talent buyer for the Suburban World Theater in Uptown. Finally got a call back from the owner who wants to meet on Saturday.

What a huge opportunity that would be. Transform Uptown Music Scene. Employ the counsel of people who've been successful at it? Asses the area. What kind of music is going to do well there? What kind of entertainment will do well there? The Uptown hipsters are gone as is the Uptown Bar and Grill. Let's birth a new scene down there. Pro-coordination is what it takes. Execute. Deliver. What if you romanticize this? I think there is a clue there. Enter into a loving relationship with your work and put in the passion. You will be successful.

I recently watched the entire series of this: http://www.thewaytohappiness.org

Kristi got me my favorite Twins jersey of all time. I am looking forward wearing it at the new Ballpark.

Today we had our work luncheon. Casey and I attended. He was a great kid the entire time. He got passed by the colleagues.

Tonight we have girls, piano and I'm going in to work to do the overnight.

I called my good buddy Taco who talent buys at the Cabooze. Mentioned I had this interview on Saturday. His piece of advice:

"Don't book any shows you like, they rarely do well."
