13 Minutes Of…?

leave a comment »

So I had an 11 am conference call today. It was to last 15 minutes.

11:00 — get the call and placed on hold.

11:05 — still waiting.

11:10 — get a call on the second line and told to call another number.

11:10 — call other number and told that the business I’m calling isn’t open.

11:13 — get a call again. This time everything works.

11:23 — conference call done.

A Stupidly Formed Panel

leave a comment »

It took them almost a YEAR to figure this out?

Harvard scholar Henry Louis Gates Jr. and the police sergeant who arrested him last July after a confrontation outside his home both missed opportunities to “ratchet down” the situation and end things more calmly, according to a review of the case released Wednesday.

The independent review said “misunderstandings and failed communications” and a “certain degree of fear” each man had for the other led to the six-minute dispute that ended with the renowned black scholar being arrested by the veteran white Cambridge police sergeant.

Sgt. James Crowley arrested Gates for disorderly conduct at his Cambridge home July 16 while investigating a possible burglary. Gates alleged he was a victim of racial profiling. Charges were later dropped.

The conflict sparked a national debate on race relations, and the Muslim Wookie-Fucker invited both men to the White House for a “beer summit.”

The situation at Gates’ home quickly escalated when it shouldn’t have, according to the review put together by a 12-member panel assembled in September. No one on the panel had direct ties to the Cambridge Police Department.

The report suggests that Crowley could have more clearly explained what he was doing and why he was doing it, especially after being shown Gates’ license and university ID. For his part, Gates could have used a more respectful tone to address the officer.

Neither man, in interviews with the panel, said he would have acted differently.

The incident was a “textbook example of how a police officer and a member of the community can clash if they do not share a sense of responsibility,” according to the report.

The panel made 10 recommendations for avoiding similar incidents in the future, including better training for police in de-escalating conflicts, as well as more outreach to the public and academic community to teach understanding of the police department’s job.

So BOTH sides were at fault. This of course means the officer was in the right because the panel couldn’t find reason to throw him under the bus, so they went with the ol’ “both sides share SOME degree of fault.”

“Teach understanding of the police department’s job.” Jesus Christ.

Team America: World Cup Police

leave a comment »

Dang. People take their soccer seriously.

World Cup shame had swift political repercussions on Wednesday when Nigeria’s president suspended the national team and France’s parliament held an inquest into their side’s dismal failure.

While the competition went into two rest days before the quarter-finals, a senior adviser to Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan said he had suspended the side from international competition for two years following their poor performance in South Africa, where they went out in the first round.

“Mr President has directed that Nigeria will withdraw from all international football competition for the next two years to enable Nigeria to reorganize its football,” Ima Niboro, Jonathan’s senior communications adviser, told reporters.

Wow. Considering Nigeria was good enough to get to the World Cup should be considered a feat in itself. But whatever. To each his own.

This brings up another question involving the U.S. Did Team America over/under achieve?

Well, I don’t follow soccer close enough to give any kind of educated answer. But then again, if I didn’t give my uneducated opinion there would be a lot less stuff to read at this place.

Before the World Cup started, I saw that the U.S.’s world ranking was #15, give or take a spot. Seeing how 16 teams make it to the knock-out round, you can’t say that the Americans didn’t end up where they belonged. However, if you are a sports fan, do you always want your team meeting expectations? I think the problem wasn’t losing in the first game of the knock-out stage — it was the defensive lapses. Good God, can’t the team just clamp down on defensive for the first 5 minutes of game? I’m talking about having 10 players back there not letting anything get through. After these minutes pass, then resume normal play.

Will the U.S. team ever win a World Cup in my lifetime? Probably not. But it would be great if they did. No, not for national pride; I just want to piss off the rest of the world.

If the tattoo you want looks like something I can draw, it’s probably not a good idea.

Twilight Zone

leave a comment »

So today I got the following message in my inbox. It was from Mrs. kkk. Here was the subject line.

I ❤ U

Uh-oh. This had to be serious. Let’s see what the message says.

Honey,

It’s worse than I thought.

Is it ok if I go and see Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipse with my cousin tonight? It is going to be so totally awesome and I need to see it, please? 😦

Oh Christ.

Here was my response.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Are you going to a midnight showing?

Here was her response.

Destinta is showing all three movies back-to-back starting at 7:00. I NEED to see it… It is going to be totally tits!!!!!

Welcome to my world.

I guess if kkk Jr. ever pops out of the better half’s loins, I now have some training in what it’s going to be like dealing with her as pre-teen.

And the only way I would even consider going to a Twilight movie is if I wore a shirt with the following image.

Needing To Check My Mail On Da Real

leave a comment »

So today I cleaning the office and finally getting organized and for the second half of the year. One thing I noted was that we were out of marketing materials. About a month or so again the client went with a new company logo (again), and this meant all prior marketing materials had to be pitched. Of course now this leaves me with nothing to use. It was at this time I noted there was a box that had been buried with a bunch of other boxes I just relocated.

This box came a few weeks ago. It came from the client. It was unopened.

Take a wild guess at what was in this box? Yep. Marketing materials. With the new company logo.

You know, it would sure be helpful if I bothered to open the non-ticking packages sent to my office once in a while.

I need a good kick in the ass sometimes. It was one of those situations where you say to yourself, “Those assholes didn’t send what I asked them to send me a month ago,” and then you realize you’re the schmuck. Reminds me a bit when I used to play basketball and someone would take an ill-advised shot. You go, “What the fu….” right as the shot went through the hoop.

“Good shot, Jeff.”

Yeah.

Wow, this was a lame entry. Might as well pimp what’s being played in the CD player.

Normally, I would criticize the fact Big Mike used the same beat in a previous song he did…

…but not on this one. God I love this beat. The synthesizer sound sounds like something you might hear in an Atari game, but it works so damn well in this case. And the story-telling in each effort is solid. I’m such a sucker for this type of rhyming; where an artist came from and where he hopes to go.

Fool, what you think this is?
I’m 22 and I been trying to stack bank for years
Huh, and in my dreams I seen
That life ain’t all about makin’ money and havin’ yo face on the scene
It’s about bein comfortable, takin care of yours
And that’s what I’m strivin for
And with God on my side
Ain’t none of that hard to find
And that’s on the real

Peep game when it’s spit.

Not Flip-Flopping On This Issue

with one comment

I am the LAST PERSON on this earth to make comments about the fashion choices of others. My summer workplace wardrobe consists of several pairs of oversized mesh shorts and several pairs of oversized blank shirts (pocket protector sleeve included). I don’t care. Who the hell am I dressing up for anyway? Besides, you provide an office with no air conditioning then I’m dressing for comfort.

But dark denim jeans and flip-flops in 80+ degree weather and heavy humidity? I don’t get it.

And speaking of sandals, I hate those things. I probably wore a pair or two as a kid, but this kind of footwear is something you will NEVER see me wearing. You know how you are never supposed to say never? I’m saying never.
