If you usually have trouble beating your easily-distracted tennis opponent then you should bring them here for your next match.

This looked so amazing. Unfortunately, everything was fully booked once we tried to do a day of reservation. We should have planned ahead. Next time…

Circle of Life … or something

Clutch @ 2018 Roskilde Festival

Clutch is one of the more recent bands that have been added to the 2019 Copenhell lineup. But that’s not where my history with Clutch begins. Earlier this year they played at Roskilde Festival on one of the more enjoyable and memorable evenings of my existence (in part because of the company I was with, Dark Tranquillity being one of my favorite bands, and being blown away by seeing NIN for the first time). But that’s not where the story begins either…

Way back in 2008 we were headed to Copenhagen for me to teach at Copenhagen Business School for the first time. (2019 will be my sixth time in twelve years.) Copenhell didn’t exist yet, and I had never heard of the Roskilde Festival so I didn’t go (which is sad because many great bands played that year including Neil Young, Judas Priest, Radiohead, At The Gates, Slayer, Dengue Fever, and Black Mountain). Anyway, as we were queued up in an airport line in the USA to check our bags to Copenhagen it was obvious that we were in line right behind a band as they had all of their gear, etc. I asked them who they were, and they told me they were Clutch. I had never heard of them before. They were going to play at that same 2008 Roskilde Festival. Seeing them live, for the first time, 10 years later at the very same festival was serendipity or ironic or something.

Sprutz Waterfall (“near” Gimmelwald, Switzerland)

Today’s photo comes from the aforementioned “easy” hike along the Gimmelwald-Spielbodenalp trail. If you do it, go in the opposite direction to avoid the steep uphill climb from Gimmelwald.
