Huh, look at that.

I'm 15 posts away from #500.
Shocked and awed that I'm approaching that number.

What do you want to read about in the big 5 0 0 ?

Ask and you may receive.....

Mekons. Or Rush.

Saw Jon Langford all weekend at the fest. Good guy. He got on stage with Rosie Flores for a few tunes. Awesome.

Let's see here. Looks like you average around 9 or 10 posts per month - that would put number 500 near the end of August or early September.

How about a notice when Von has gone 100 days without serious illness or injury! It could be like those signs they put up in the lumber yard saying how many days it's been since some idiot cut his hand off with the miter saw...

I'm fourteen away from 500... my "24 Posts in 24 Hours" push had a bit to do with that.

I want the 500th post to be titled "First Von on the Moon". The subtitle could be "One Small Step for Von, One Giant Leap for Vonkind".

Von said...

Hmm - Mikey is jinxing me, and B4 is trying to get me off the planet.
And I thought you guys were my friends....

more videos?

Beer. Great Big Sea. Some combination of the two.

Was this a trick question?

fish said...

How about a recap of your weekend with an added call-out on some cobag on the bus?

vicarious living and all that.

Beer. Great Big Sea. Some combination of the two.

Now, I'm dreaming of a beer ocean.

How about you make post 500 a "What have we learned?" post? It's kinda like how Batman and Wonder Woman would tell young viewers not to stick forks into electrical sockets at the end of Superfriends. Maybe The Avonger can give us saftey tips about mosh pits and fretboard-related carpal tunnel.

Von said...

The AVonger. I LOVE IT.
I also like the idea of a What have I learned? post.
Thanks!

Fish, don't I do that just about every day?

Von said...

more videos?
LOL
Don't want to sweat too much.

Or you could skip it and go straight to #501.

Institutionally, lessons learned is one of the more wrenching and difficult processes. These guys tend to do a pretty good job of it.

Doing it right requires honesty from every level of the command structure, and to get there you'll have to ensure everyone involved that there will not be negative consequences for participation.

Of course, implementing changes as a result of a Lessons Learned evaluation remains nearly impossible...

I would like a short history of the salt trade. Explaining voice, optional

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

Perhaps you could get Grizzled to guest-post a quick 1000 words on adhesives....

Brando said...

How about you turn the what you learned on its head and write about 5 things you haven't learned from blogging but wish you had?

Alternately, your 500 favorite slang words.

Von said...

LOL to both Z and Brando.
Z - I might just let someone guest post for #501. Maybe a contest? Hmmm
Brando - I'm good, but I'm not that good. I'm not 100% sure I could come up with 500 slang words.

Von said...

Snag - I LOVE that idea!!

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

how about 500 curse words?
