And we all know what that means. Time for another MOTW, Manager of the Week. This next manager pays for his/her family doctor children's education with his/her constant visits. From The Night Canopy to you, Happy New Year's Eve. Enjoy and stay safe.

This manager has myriad ailments, practically all of which are impossible to discern by merely looking at him/her. These illnesses have incredible timing, suddenly manifesting themselves when things begin to look grim in the office. This allows Fragile Health Manager to repeatedly disappear when things are at their worst, leaving the staff leaderless and without recourse when dealing with looming crises. During periods when things are going smoothly however, he/she is the picture of health and could model for the cover of Good Living or any other magazine that depicts stress-free, healthy lifestyle choices.

Plod Along Middle Manager operates under the misapprehension that working hard, following the rules and never calling in sick will get him/her ahead in the company. He/she is an endangered species and Senior Management regularly schedules safaris where Plod Along Middle Manager is mercilessly hunted, the outcomes of which are never in doubt. Recent studies released by Forbes predict that the Plod Along Middle Manager species will be extinct within the next calendar year.

As the post title says, here is a triple dose of Planet P Project from the otherworldly mind of Tony Carey and his awesome concept album Pink World. First up is March of the Artemites.
And now, for a more mellow frame of mind here is One Star Falling. There are so many good cuts to pick from on this album. I just picked these three.
Finally, the ultra mellow The Stranger. Enjoy and happy Friday.

Does batman really smell? I guess you would have to ask Robin. Anyway, 'tis the season and my boys are singing the Jingle Bells parody constantly. So here is Jimmy Fallon channeling his inner Bob Dylan doing the same. So short but so good. Enjoy.

Pontius Pilate Manager has the uncanny ability to completely absolve himself/herself of any blame attached to any unfortunate results produced by his/her staff and get away with it. This elusive quality, combined with feigning ignorance about bad outcomes in his/her unit is referred to by Pontius Pilate Manager as empowerment, a word Senior Management tends to go glassy-eyed and drool over. Using this combination of tactics Pontius Pilate Manager has survived numerous fiascos in his/her checkered career without so much as a scratch. Pontius Pilate Manager also rarely catches colds as he/she washes his/her hands frequently. (Sorry, couldn’t resist.)

After Forever performs Energize Me. Floor Jansen is currently touring with Nightwish as their lead singer after their falling out with Anette Olzon. Personally I think she is a better fit for them and I look forward to the sound of Nightwish with Floor if they decide to continue together after the tour is over. Enjoy and happy Friday.

Despite company policy to the contrary, Foul Mouthed Manager engages in diatribes directed at his/her staff which are heavily laced with imprecations, the kind which would make a sailor on shore leave redden with embarrassment. Whenever a representative of the Human Resources department comes within earshot however, Foul Mouthed Manager’s vocabulary miraculously becomes as pristine as a virgin wildlife refuge.
