It’s good to be angry when you’re ready to yell

Posted: April 30, 2012 in Music nobody listens to

Guess what?

Still got nothing.

But that’s not a reason to not annoy the fuck out of everybody by yammering about Summerfest and music.

 

Probably not going to see them, it’s true.  Might buy a t-shirt though.

    Speaking of yelling, I just read this comment.

    the jury’s still out on that – bacterial DNA has been detected in plaque material, which isn’t the same as saying that the bugs caused the plaque. By the same token, if I find bits of sqwirrel lodged in the rusty undercarriage of my car (sorry, luncheoners), it doesn’t follow that the sqwirrels caused the rust – more likely, both the rust and the sqwirrels are consequences of some other activity (possibly my cruising the night streets, looking for sqwirrels to stand my ground against).

  2. My computer is being a dick to me today. I can’t watch/listen to the video. 😦
    Boooo! Almost time for a new comp! Like seriously.. I’ve been trying to post this comment for 5 minutes and am STILL sitting here… Grrrrrrrr.

    So sitting here, stuffing a sammich into my gaping maw. No, not my ma. That would be weird. Yes, Rule 34 DOES imply that you can find a website about people stuffing things into their gaping ma. But I’m not going to click your linky, you roger that, cowboy?

    Anyway, lunch time. Let’s see what the imaginary digital friends are up to. First, went to Bouffant’s place and the computer locked up. Now, correlation ≠ causation, I get that, but it does leave me a little Bouffant-shy. After a reboot, over to the Summerfest home for undead architects. Whereupon I see the title “It’s good to be angry when you’re ready to yell”. On its face, it makes sense. But something niggles at my niggler. It just doesn’t FEEL right. Go back and parse it carefully.

    Ok, there it is. It IS good to be angry when you’re ready to yell, but how often are you just ‘Ready to Yell’ out of the blue – probably a little more better to be ready to yell when you’re angry, y’know? ‘Cause there’s just no value in keeping it all inside. You turn mottled colors and break out in weird rashes. And break stuff. Oh, I know, it’s bound to be an obscure song lyric, and it reads the way it does for perfectly valid rhyme and meter reasons, but since I don’t know it the trigger didn’t fire and I had to analyze it on the merits – hey, remember when those used to be cigarettes? People liked ’em ’cause you could bite ’em – the ends were made of reinforced composite and kevlar or something, they wouldn’t crush.

    I had a phone interview with a software company this morning and it went well, so they told me the next step is they want me to put together an online presentation of THEIR product demonstrating how I would communicate the value proposition. Now, I’ve had companies that I was interviewing with give me ‘homework’ of various sorts, and that’s fine, it actually gives me an edge over other younger, better smelling candidates – but to ask me to do a sales presentation BEFORE I actually work for them feels manipulative at best. I’m thinking about some alternative responses, like sending them an email telling them I’d be delighted to speak to them further, but I don’t do uncompensated work, or maybe do the presentation and send it over to them along with an invoice. We’ll see what I decide to do – I’m not feeling any great sense of urgency with these doods…

    Bang on the nose.

    Funny what brings the pedants out.

    Please look into the Sweetback Sisters – so much fun. Great show.

    Sorry, Vonnie, I am only entertaining Summerfest performers this month. Are they performing at Summerfest? Then we’re go!

  6. I’ve been trying to post this comment for 5 minutes

    That’s a loyal audience.

  7. No kidding, Substance.

    Fuck, when I have five minutes of frustration with this stupid blog, I usually abandon it and go start another one.

    can you splash a watermark over every page so it couldn’t be reused? I think that would be hilarious.
    … which may not be what you are going for in a job interview.

    I like sending them a schedule of billing rates.

    Otherwise, just curse a lot.

    I’ve come to appreciate natural, organic, local solutions in my dotage.

    I figure the natural flatulence will provide a wholesome solution…

    Tell ’em it’s a disability.

  12. Anyway, lunch time. Let’s see what the imaginary digital friends are up to. First, went to Bouffant’s place and the computer locked up. Now, correlation ≠ causation, I get that, but it does leave me a little Bouffant-shy.

    I have discovered that Bouffant’s place is much better with Flashblock. Loading a ton of video players from a bunch of different sources at once seems to require a lot of resources, so I have them blocked and then watch them individually if so moved. Usually I open up my entire blogroll at once, each site in a new tab, and with Flashblock even the ancient macs can handle that.

Go ahead, tell me how I fucked up this time.
