yeah, so a lovely day... but there's a nasty vibe in the work zone... more on that... later.
the sun is burning off clouds, and cool air is cooling off summer...
Everything that is green... is holding it's breath, getting ready
Trees are shifting ... and it's beautiful.
The colours of autumn are beginning to make themselves heard!!!
And it remains well ny impossible to wake Edward in the morning.
er... is that how you spell ny?
~ brand spanking new black stripee ftls
~ dk green dockers (pleats... yes yes... I know... enough already!)
~ jet black t and a strange green button up shirt... nice though...
~ like how I slipped "jet" in there...
~ and I got to say "spanking"... this is practically porn!
~ hard core slave boy, working on a bid... translates into ... I have 20 resumes to score and place on a bid-grid... or, I could kill myself.
~ and everybody is in "stress monkey" mode about this bid... so... joy oh joy oh happy joy.
~ turn my three docs from that big gig that just ended into a single document and ship it off to various people at the client site...
~ write about BB ... and then begin the two week process of forgetting everything about the show and the players...
~ WATCH LOST !!!!
~ to shout out to Sinky... er... I mean sin_da_rella
~ that my friend harleydog has a free-from-back-pain day!!
~ and cross a few fingers for venusrising... just 'cuz
At the end of a show I was watching the other night... the host said... "and keep that support coming" in reference to the publics donations to the Red Cross in support of the gulf coast catastrophe.
And I have to say... No.
I mean... Indonesia? poor, corrupt country, where their governments could care less about a bunch of homeless, penniless dying citizens. I'm all over support there but even then... I begin to question.
The United States Gulf Coast... big questions.
The US is the richest country in the universe. They can afford to go to Mars (apparently), build space ships, wage wars all over the world and exert economic pressure - let alone out and out financial war fare - where ever they want... AND THEY CAN AFFORD TO HELP THE PEOPLE IN THE GULF COAST.
Meanwhile... I live in a community with residents holed up in shelters.. or lined up at food banks. I'm not saying that I don't have feelings for the people in the water log zone.... quite the contrary... I was overwhelmed by the depth of their need and I understand the initial need for popular support... but now it's time to remember that we all have communities around us that could maybe use a little support too!!!!
I mean, if you can afford to contribute to many charities ... then go you. But if your charitable donations are limited in scope... then why would you send your money to another country... a rich country... when there are people in your own back yard that desperately need your help too?
Imagine... Volkswagen sued the guys that made this fake commercial... gosh... where's their sense of humour... [ :: boom :: ]
Early 1990's. I'm sitting at a computer, writing code... tens of thousands of lines of code... trying to keep things straight... blocking out the distractions of the universe with head phones and garbage playing on the cd. Loud...
I fell in love with her voice...
I saw her on the VH1 Fashion Awards... performing Stupid Girl and looking ... hot.
done... I was trapped and happily so.
Despite a lifetime of indifferent enjoyment of so many musical styles...
I became a hard core no fooling around psycho fan of Garbage...
It was so much fun it's just silly.
Several concerts under my belt... pictures of the band... and extensive collection of bootleg cd's and videos...
and they have announced the end.
I can't say I blame them...
They've worked hard and produced some amazing music...
but ... you can't keep up a concert schedule for the rest of your life... unless you're some zombies like the Undead Stones.
The Garbage zone is done.
So long and thanks for all the fish.
time to shine...
