music to make love to

carlin is dead and it saddens me. he was one of my favorite comics and while i think ‘seven words…’ was groundbreaking, there are bits i love more. i think my love of carlin’s work comes from his ability with words. he was brilliant and will be missed.

while vic and i were dating, we spent the night at a friend’s house and i’d brought the freshly minted, at that time, complaints and grievances cd. we had been listening to it in the car and brought it to finish listening to before we went to sleep. all i have to add to this story is that laughing hysterically doesn’t hurt when you’re getting frisky. i honestly think if you can’t laugh during sex, then what’s the point.

i have the power

i have now officially been appointed creative director, no pay raise, no perks, just the title. still feels good and my tattoo guy signed on. i’ve been looking forward to working with him for a while. let’s see how this goes. in the meantime here is a joke that a friend sent me:

The angel Gabriel came to the Lord and said, “I have to talk to you. I have some West Indians up here in Heaven who are causing some problems. They are swinging on the Pearly Gates, my horn is missing, jerk sauce and curry are all over their robes; hamhocks, cowheel, chicken feet and pigtail bones are all over the streets of Gold; some folk are walking around with one wing, they have been late taking their turn in keeping the stairway to heaven clean, there are watermelon seeds all over the clouds, some aren’t even wearing their halos, saying it doesn’t fit with their hairstyles.” The Lord said, “I made them special, as I did you, my angel. Heaven is home to all my children. If you really want to know about problems, let’s call the Devil.” The Devil answered the phone, “Hello? What the….!, hold on one minute.” The Devil returned to the phone and said, “Hello Lord, what can I do for you?” The Lord replied, “Tell me what kind of problems you are having down there.” The Devil said, “Wait one minute,” and put the Lord on hold. After 5 minutes he returned to the phone, and said “Okay, I’m back. What was the question?” The Lord said, “What kind of problems are you having down there?” Devil said, “Man, I don’t beli…..hold on, Lord”. This time the Devil was gone for 15 minutes. The Devil returned and said, “I’m sorry Lord, I can’t talk right now. These West Indians put the fire out, and now they are trying to install air conditioning!” 

i’ll be back with more updates as the day progresses. with great power, comes great responsibility.

day 17

i took the day off work today.

woo hoo. i know i keep bitching about how much i hate my job, you would think i should just put up or shut up but part of the problem is i’ve burned, bombed (shock and awe type bombing) and destroyed quite a few bridges in my time in the advertising industry here. people are a little afraid to hire me.

it’s not that i don’t have the talent, it’s the ‘prima donna attitude’ i’m not a prima donna, perfectionist with a low tolerance level for shit – yes, prima donna – no. i do good work, i work hard, but advertising here is more about who you know and who you (insert male bonding ritual here) on the weekend, than anything to do with real talent. with very few exceptions, nothing in the print media stands out anymore, no one wants to take a chance on a fresh look.

that said, as crappy as the pay and personalities at the office, i think i did some of damn good work yesterday on this presentation, it’s good to be inspired.

in other news i have to thank my friends for continuing to supply me with some of the strangest and most entertaining things online.

here is but one example:
things my girlfriend and i have argued about

quite funny, british humour.

i’m off to save the world, or at least get breakfast, prepare for a meeting and go fix a mac and ponder how to stop this damn coughing..
