Seems that the ICCFA offers continuing education training for its members. At a one-week session to be held at the University of Memphis this summer, I see this note in the schedule of workshops and seminars:
The Cryptones: Back by Popular Demand
The hardest-rocking band in funeral service is back for one show only, July 23 at 7:30 PM in the Holiday Inn ballroom.
Mark your calendars!
The link to Ultrarunning? I get gallows humor, and engage in it whenever I possibly can. I am not appalled by this 8-person band, I think it's great! On the Ultra scene, I recall one year at the JFK 50 miler where I just could not seem to remain vertical. I fell several times and finished somewhat bloodied and embarrassed. I had been trying to better a previous time on the course and was seriously disappointed that my time was way slower than I expected.
At the finish, my running buddy's only comment was, "You probably would have finished higher if you hadn't lost the cat fight."
We had a good laugh.
