This is a wee bit strange. I tend to visit the Houston Press blogs a fair amount, partly because they've been kind enough to have this little site in their blogroll since the get-go, so the other day I got curious about some of the other blogs/sites listed. I happened to click on The Bald Heretic, since it was one of the ones I didn't know much about, and the very first thing I saw was a picture of a guy who looked oddly familiar.
Wait a minute...oh, yeah. I remember now -- this Jay Lee guy was the guy taking pictures at the Suspects reunion show. That makes sense, yep. (Turns out he was actually taking pics of openers The Aqua Velva, a B-52's cover band, but eh, you get the point.)
Yesterday, then, I happened to be walking from my cube at DayJobCorpTM (which I like much better than OldDayJobCorp, Inc., I should add, because that job ended up being somewhat soul-destroying and frustrating), and lo and behold, who was walking towards me but Jay Lee of The Bald Heretic. Suddenly it dawned on me: Jay Lee. Ahh...that was the name of the IT guy who helped me fix stuff when I first started here, who I talked to over the phone but never met in person. Holy crap, that's a little spooky.
To make things even stranger, it also turns out Mr. Lee happens to do the Technology Bytes show on KPFT, which I have listened to off and on for the past few years, mostly to confirm that despite my daily use of computers, I am still a relative idiot when it comes to how they work. (It's all magic, people. Not electricity and logic, magic. No other explanation makes sense. It's just like the Internet being a series of big tubes, really -- a no-brainer.)
The bad part is that now I feel inexplicably nervous that the next time I pass the guy in the hall, he's gonna turn around and punch me in the face. Why? I have no idea; that's why I added the "inexplicably," there. Of course, the odds that Mr. Lee will ever find this blog are pretty damn remote (although he is in the Flying Fish Sailors, who I think we link to), so I probably don't have anything to worry about. Still feels weird, though...
