The new Spiritualized cover of “Sad Days Lonely Nights” sounds like a life coming apart. It’s amazing.
In other news, there’s been an office meeting called for tomorrow, ostensibly about the file and drawing arrangement and finishing the office renovations – finally getting me out of this stupid high traffic area. But we all know what’s really going to happen. John phrased it in terms of the above when he suggested having the meeting, but the way he said it, he knew that this is actually going to be about much much more than where we keep our drawings and how we draft. This will be about the lack of communication, and the fact that the office is – if not driving itself into the ground on its own deathmarch right now; stagnating to the point that one bad crisis or lawsuit, etc. will leave us with a lot less to meet about.
And it all comes down to executive mismanagement and a lack of regard on all of our parts. They create a bad work environment; and within months, the fight and concern is drained out of anyone who walks over that transom every morning. That is why it got the term deathmarch from me in the first place, and it will continue until some serious confrontation (not necessarily negative) is breached.
Updates to come.
