A rare post about my day job. I occasionally get bounce-backs from some email systems that go out through my employer’s web site. Most of it’s garbage: automated systems telling me no one at that address exists and the like. Today I got this out-of-office note:

There are some good Brian Eno albums and a lot of bad ones. My least favorite from among the ones I own is Before and After Science. “Spider and I” just came on iTunes shuffle, and, man, that could be an Enya track. In fact, I think the theme song from “Far and Away” is a direct ripoff (I’m just remembering it from the previews; never actually saw it). And “Energy Fools the Magician”? Just the title. Gah! Must move to trash.
