On your marks, get set and go now...
Sometimes career milestones can sneak up on you. For example, thanks to today's noontime show at the Milwaukee School of Engineering I have accomplished a career goal I didn't even know I had: I performed in the old Blatz Brewery, which was used as the Shotz Brewery in the opening credits of Laverne & Shirley.
As I performed in the student center I could feel the aura and energy of quality late 70's/early 80's sitcoms in the air, and it made me feel warm inside, like comfort food. Like the mac & cheese comfort food they were giving away free during the show.
But the show was fun for several reasons, mostly because I actually like playing at engineering schools. They're filled with smart, tech-savvy students--o.k. nerds--and I fit in quite well (thanks to my cello playing, honor student past). And after the show, when they handed me the check they had written on the envelope "For the Nooner Fund," a reference to an episode of my video podcast.Hella cool, MSOE!
Now, enjoy the awesome theme song:
