The Great Divide
H: What's A O L?
Me: How old are you?
Me: In days of yore, we got on the internet through telephone lines that made funny sounds and most people used programs like this to do so.
H: You're so weird. Really, what is it.
clientsfromhell: Me: “Yup, your computer is broken. Do you have another one you can use, while we take this one down to get fixed?” Client: “My only other computer is stashed away in an aluminum box with a bunch of magnets…” Me: “What on earth would compel you to do a thing like that!?” Client: “Y2K was a scary, strange time for everyone, man.”
Drake Two Ways: A Conversation About 'Take Care' :... →
Two yuppy women, examine Drake’s Take Care, through emails, and, unintentionally, give us something to laugh about, apply feminism to hip-hop, and get upset about the use of the n-word.
Today is my last day in Kansas. I’ll travel home tomorrow and surprise Carissa who thinks I’m coming home later. We’ll go to Thanksgiving with her family and then we’ll come home. We’ll come home. We’ll come home and I won’t go back on the road until I get back from my honeymoon. My hours won’t exceed 12 a day. I’ll have down time. I’ll...
They went out. We need those RSVP’s so we can wrap the planning up. Time to hunt these motherf*ckers down… Note: This wedding business is stressful, more stressful when I’m away on work, looking forward to the honeymoon phase of this. In hindsight, eloping to Australia might have been a better idea.
That’s God, the all knowing all loving creator who made all things and hates...– Colbert (via echomignonnette)
I keep writing about politic related matters on this forum. No more.
Rubberband In The Freezer
The gap between liberal and conservative, republican and democrat, in this country is disgusting. Someone once told me that it’s okay because at least both sides are fighting for the best interest of our country. I disagree. These people are self interested. I’ll also agree that in this country, my opinion doesn’t matter. Neither does yours. Though, we can both have them;...

Das Racist (71) Tokyo Police Club (17) Neon Indian (8) Tom Waits (6) Taking Back Sunday (5) Imported from Last.fm Tumblr by JoeLaz
And I let the dog out, or I let him in, and we talk some. I let him know I like...– Slaughterhous Five Kurt Vonnegut
Just take a shower. What topic do your thoughts keep returning to? If it’s not...– Paul Graham, The Top Idea in Your Mind (via jayrobinson)
The sign read, “Family Buffet”. I tried my luck and walked in. They let me partake of their fare. The sign is misguiding but parties of one on business trips are permitted to eat here as well.
So the university fires Joe Paterno in a desperate act to prove that the safety...– Ryan Placchetti
Sirloin Stockade and the town that wore flannel
We went to the Sirloin Stockade in Junction City Kansas for dinner. When I was young, my grandfather had a glass with the logo plastered all around it. I didn’t think this place existed anymore. I saw one on the way to a friend’s house and made a goal to eat at it once. The restaurant was an amalgamation of the Coen’s Fargo, Klosterman’s Downtown Owl, and Lynch’s...

The Smiths (91) Real Estate (16) Drake (9) Dum Dum Girls (9) JAY-Z (9) Imported from Last.fm Tumblr by JoeLaz
Me: I don't tell people I'm Christian. I don't tell people I'm a patriot. I don't see it that way. Those who identify that way are generally out of touch with what those things mean.
S: You're just as bad then. You're stereotyping.
Me: Do you need the label to recognize yourself or for display to others?
Kansas business trip
…And then I ended up at the Das racist/adult swim block party.
I’m pretty sure I’m sitting right across from Heems and Kool A.D. in the Dallas Fort Worth airport.
On the road
Kansas City, here I come!
Teachers Get Paid Too Much?
reb-ellious: I’m fed up with teachers and their hefty salary schedules. What we need here is a little perspective. If I had my way, I’d pay these teachers myself-I’d pay them baby-sitting wages. That’s right-instead of paying these outrageous taxes, I’d give them $3.50 an hour out of my own pocket. And I’m only going to pay them for five hours, not for any kind of breaks. That would be $17.50 a...
