    I'm toying with the idea of getting several JUBBERS together to write and compose a song. The song will be about dealing with life's "struggles", tackling them head on, learning from our mistakes, etc.

    Anyone willing to help me with writing?

    Also...anyone talented with keyboard, piano, or other instruments?

    Once we get the lyrics and production squared away, we can decide who will sing, have solos and such.


    It can sorta be like JUB's version of "We are the World".

    I can do some writing. Possibly singing, provided a vocoder will be in heavy use

    I would so be down for the song Gentleheart, but I have no talent in that area

    Im sure that there are some really talented folks on JUB that could make a beautiful piece.

    Anyway.....I came out to someone really easily yesterday. It felt good.

    thanks, sweetness.

    Oh, And that's great to hear about you coming out to someone. It DOES feel good...and it usually becomes easier each time you open up to someone about it.

    Yes, we can write about my dramatic break up and gradual reconnection with JUB. It will move souls as far away as Omnicron Persi 8.

    The insurance system in the US of A is so screwed up it's ridiculous. Instead of a unified bill for my hip surgery, I will be seeing about twenty different ones, from each different professional involved, and possibly more than one from each.

    What a madhouse.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

    I don't get too much bragging on my feed. That, or I'm so inured to it that it doesn't even register. I'm assuming "I got the job" and "I'm cancer-free" don't qualify. Occasionally, they'll post a picture of a new acquisition, but my friend list being what it is, it's far more likely to be a guitar pedal than a car. About all that's left are pictures of friends on the beach. And those are fine - they'll be back here in Bipolarado before you know it.

    Actually, come to think of it, I'll occasionally see the "oh, just hanging backstage with Bruce Springsteen, no big deal" photos. And even there, my main problem is the faked nonchalance.

    This isn't to say Facebook is all hugs and glitter. My biggest pet peeves on MY Facebook feed?

    * Links to stupid pages (especially lists) from Upworthy and Buzzfeed. "This Behavioral Psychiatrist Totally Explains Women In One Two Minute Video - My Mind Was Blown At 1:26". "Twenty-Eight Things That Only Gay Gargoyles Will Understand (Complete With Animated GIFs From Popular TV Shows That Really Don't Fit The Items On The List But We'll Include Them Anyway). Number Eleven Will Make You Burst Out Cheering, While Number Twenty-Four Will Make You Recheck The Batteries In Your Smoke Detector".

    * "I took the 'What (TV-Show-Character/Musician/Flower/Popsicle Flavor) Are You' quiz and got (result). Take the quiz and find out which YOU are!" I find these almost bewildering. Yes, I'm a fan of some shows, and even relate to characters, sometimes to the point of using them as sign-in names and avatars on messageboards. But I can't really see the point in taking a quiz to find out "which I am". I tried a couple, and it just seemed...patronizing? "You got...Lexington! You're so smart and caring, and want to try new things! But you're always there when your friends need you!" Should I feel good about this? Should I feel upset if it suggests I'm really more "Brooklyn"?

    I like to respond to these in a semi-joking, semi-trollish manner.

    What Walking Dead Character Are You?
    Zombie #3 Who Died In The First Episode

    What Sex In The City Character Are You?
    That Fabulous Purse From Season Four.

    What Seventies Icon Are You?
    Sajid Khan.

    What Flower Are You?
    Unbleached self-rising.

    What Color Is Your Aura?
    Blackwatch Plaid.

    * Things I mentally file under "X-Files", after their "I Want To Believe" slogan. These can usually be put in two categories. One is standard. A lucky escape proves that angels exist. Every bright light in the sky is proof that UFOs are real. Fortune cookies should be heeded, check your biorhythms, and never go on a date until you run his astrological chart. The second group is specifically the Government Is Evil group. Mind you, I don't necessarily trust those in charge. But that just means I cast a skeptic eye in ALL directions. It certainly doesn't mean I immediately believe every government conspiracy theory. I know, I know - it makes you feel special because you're one of the few who aren't "sheeple", but frankly, your theories hold as much water as a colander.

    Most recent example - someone posted on FB bemoaning the fact that they never learned things like how to balance a checkbook or how to make a budget in school. Another friend ("Bob") announced that was the government's plan, to keep us ignorant. I pointed out that I learned both of those in high school, in economics class. Bob then said the government must have banned the class soon after I graduated. I went online to check - not only is the class still offered at my old school, but they offer separate micro and macroeconomics AP classes now. To which Bob said that was proof that the government was working to promote the class divisions by offering these classes in rich schools like mine, while poor schools like his old one aren't given the option. So I went online again - yes, Bob's old school offers macro and microeconomics classes, too. At which point, Bob said they keep it as an elective, because all the required courses are meant to force kids into obeying their governmental masters. (You just know if the course were required, it would be "to force kids to bow before the almighty dollar".) In the course of this conversation, Bob brought up contrails, water fluoridation, controlled demolition, and NORAD. And he said he felt very sorry for me for not being able to think for myself.

    * Reposting satirical news as fact. This simply makes my brain hurt.

    Oddly, I don't see much of this, either. Again, that's possibly due to my friendlist, which is heavy on the "artist" types on the lower end of the socioeconomic ladder. I'll occasionally get a "this place has the hugest plate of nachos!", but that probably doesn't count.

    My boss at my store is taking a personal day tonight, so I got stuck with the other overnight manager - my boss's counterpart. The other overnight manager is incompetent as the day is long, and was actually trying to get out of working tonight. It would suit me just fine if he bailed or called in - that means the evening manager is going to close the store for the night and send my ass home! With pay. Because it's not my fault that the overnight manager didn't show up.

    If he isn't there by 10.29.59pm, shut 'er down!

    You mean womb.

    Incidentally, I am almost done with the book Wolf Hall about Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn and she thinks her second child will hopefully be a male. I was hoping to finish the book tonight but have like 50 pages left. I did buy the second book in the trilogy: "Bringing up the Bodies" which I'm guessing is when Henry VIII goes on his "killing spree".

    Are these fiction books or dramatized novelizations or?

    Is this like those survival shows on tv where they have to use everything they find to survive... boiling/cooking in a pop can... maybe they're repurposing your markers for something? Splints, tent stakes, weapons, kindling, ... ?

    I live in New Jersey now and for the time being I am traveling to Philly to my job. It was raining the last 2 days and one of the major roads to Philly from Jersey was flooded and closed today, yet no mention of this on 2 different sites I checked this morning.

    I'm trying to give them the benefit of the doubt in the hopes that they're doing it for some "good" reason... at least good to them at the time, and not just doing it to be vindictive and destructive. I'm not qualified to guess as to what the reasons would be for them removing them though, other than my stabs at it in my previous post.

    Luckily there was a sign to inform us that there was flooding and the road was closed so we didn't get caught in any traffic.

    The one time we managed to catch one of the officers, they didn't touch the trail markers.

    They're obviously trail markers, since they're where trails come out to the beach, and there were flags or signs that say "TRAIL" on them. So the only explanation for chopping or tearing them down is stupidity or purposeful vandalism.


    edit: I'd like to catch the officer in command after they've torn down the markers one time, and ask if it's really the intent to teach the fly boys that if they have to use their survival skills, pissing off the locals is a beneficial approach.

    Well, been a very busy last couple of days. Had an interview with Whole Foods today, for the concierge position I'm trying for. *I* think I knocked it out of the park. But that's just my $0.02. If I'm called back for a second interview, it'll be on or before close of business Monday, and the interview itself will likely be next Friday.

    I really hope this pans out, and that WF pays better. I like where I'm at now with Walgreens, but, as I've posted on here before - my boss is trying to quit, the other overnight cashier (my counterpart) is going to quit - his last day is supposed to be Tuesday night, if he shows up!

    I need to try for something better that will pay more, and not just settle for what I've got. My counselor has told me how I really do deserve better than what I've gotten. But part of it is that I've just taken whatever I could get, and have just "settled for". I need to stop that.

    Honestly, it sounds like a very easy job...

    Make sure the customers are being taken care of and the store looks great at all times. Surprise and delight the customers with consistent, delightful service.
    Maximize sales potential through outstanding customer service including: greeting customers as they enter the store, circulating throughout the store and engaging customers, answering and researching customer questions, and escorting customers to products.
    Provide information on how to obtain products not available at Whole Foods Market and that addresses specific customer needs.
    Maintain reference materials for research.
    Give customers store tours.
    Assist disabled customers.
    Offer samples to customers.
    Greeting customers and providing exceptional, personalized service and educating customers about Whole Foods Market products. The concierge may partner with marketing to lead store tours and assist with various marketing and store promotional projects and holiday initiatives.
    Maintain clean and sanitary operating environment including facing shelves, maintaining passive samples, and monitoring floor cleanliness.
    Support regional and store vision and execute all regional directives and programs.
    Follow food safety and sanitation guidelines.
    Respond promptly to customer needs and questions and requests assistance when necessary, including answering the store phone system.
    ...And probably for better pay than the $8.50/hr I'm making on the overnight shift. Right now, working approximately 80 hours every two weeks, and with $90 bucks docked from my paycheck for health insurance, and after taxes, etc. I make $500 every two weeks - That's only $1,000 a month! With the $150/mo salary (plus whatever help I need with groceries from time to time) I get from my housekeeping job, I'm only clearing $1,150 a month, which = $13,800 a year. The US Dept of Health And Human Services calculates the federal-level poverty line for one person living on their own at $11,670. So I make a little over 2 grand over the poverty line ($2,130, to be exact).

    Yeah, something's gotta give.

    There should be some kind of rule to block employers from labeling a position as "entry level", when they follow it up with x amount of experience in such-and-such required, etc. fucking stop it.

    I don't even understand why that's as common as it is. It's really common now, but I didn't even understand it 15 years ago, before all the economic problems. I can understand for some kind of highly skilled or management level position in a given field, where it's not a job you simply train someone to do from scratch, that you demand experience. But I've never understood why in entry level positions it's almost as though people feel like any form of training costs way too much money and time, when you have to train virtually any new employee in the specifics of how your business does things anyhow, even if they did a similar job for a different company elsewhere.

    @ going all out of my way to send someone a nice, lengthy PM in regards to something they've been pressing me about for ages...then when they reply I get a one-word "response". Really, bitch? wow.

    right!?

    It's their "market" right now, so they can be as irritating and irrational as they want for the time being.
    Since I'm basically trying to change the entire "course" of my career, I've been aiming for companies that offer training. A lot of my skills will carry over, but I'm basically starting from the ground up.

    It's funny, because as you said...some of them are going out of their way to keep from training anyone, but they're STILL going to have to teach people how to use their systems, etc. A mess. It all comes down to saving a buck.

    ^ I hear you both, XB and GH!

    We want to get someone for cheap. We want experience, but we don't want to have to pay for that experience, and we prefer experience, because we'd rather not have to train anybody?

    Um...NO! Retail is one of the worst offenders of this. I have 12 years experience, some management experience, and a good work ethic. Any store would snap me up quick. But as for what they'd pay? "Oh, $8.50/hr." "Um, we only do part time, here..." "Yeah, no benefits..."

    I think some companies know they're shit companies with high turn over and don't want to train people who end up leaving to work for their competition. ...and believe it or not some companies aren't smart enough to invest in themselves (or their employees).

    The "trickle down" effect should trickle up from the bottom.

    Hugs, Kuli. My left foot was the same way, when I had surgery last year. I could walk on grass or soil just fine. But here in the concrete jungle that is the city, soft ground to walk on is few and far between.

    Hope you get to feeling better.

    In other news, this PowerPoint I'm working on for my speech class in the morning...



    I got it to looking all nice and pretty, and then after it was finished, only then did I realize something was horribly wrong...

    I made it in 16x9 high definition widescreen, not the old-fashioned 4x3 standard definition. The screen in our classroom where this will be showed at will be a 4x3. So my presentation must be in 4x3. Not 16x9!!!

    So now, I have to basically redo the whole damn thing from scratch, and retrofit the custom graphics elements I made just for it, so that they'll fit in the SD format presentation.

    All that work into the HD presentation, only to have to do it over and recreate it in SD!

    Re: The Just Venting, Airing Out, Talking Shit, Personal Beefs, Problems, Anger Management, and etc Thread for 2014

    I have a regular need for work by some local artists. So I have a standing order for local artists to submit a sample or two of their artwork to me, and I'll contact them if I think I can use their work.

    I first heard from this guy (I'll call him Dave) via email. He let me know that he was working on a piece, and already, it was shaping up to be the most awesome thing ever. He wanted me to be the first to see it once it was done. I sort of shrugged and said sure. Then he sent me another message. "I can't sleep. This piece is going to be so goddamned good. I can say without hesitation that it'll change the game completely. Can I send you the piece? It's not done - I only have the very vague shape done - but already I can tell this will be IT." I in fact turned down the offer to see it at this point, because it was way too early to judge. It'd be like trying to judge a movie based on the preliminary script outline.

    He finally submitted the work to me. And my hunch was correct - it wasn't good. The only modestly appealing thing about it was a vague sort of amateurishness to the whole thing - I can sort of admire that. But I can't say as I like the finished product much. For all his build-up, it seemed very slapdash, and I simply didn't find the thing very compelling.

    As always, I tried to be nice. I thanked him for his submission, and explained why I thought I might not he able to use it. I kept all the blame on me - "I prefer using art like this other type" rather than "I don't think your art is any good". But he apparently decided what I meant was "this is almost perfect but not quite - can you try again, making very tiny modifications to your main theme?" Because he's now submitted over TWENTY pieces to me. Each one seems just as slapdash as the other, suggesting he's cranking these out in his basement as fast as he can make them.

    Earlier this week, he asked me for an honest critique of his work. I tried to give one, again, trying to keep things pleasant. I explained why I didn't think what he submitted would work for my purposes. He asked me which of the submissions I liked best. I said, "Of the ones you submitted., I think Number Eight probably manages to avoid more of the problems than your other submissions do." He apparently took this to mean I loved Number Eight even more than the others, and I couldn't wait to use it. He emailed to me last night to express puzzlement that I haven't used the piece yet, adding "I do have Asperger's though, and so I sometimes have trouble interpreting body language and facial cues." (This is especially strange to point out, since we've never met in person - only online, with a couple phone calls mixed in.) I decided to take that opportunity to say "Well, then, if you're missing the cue, you are contacting me an awful lot. I don't think that's helping your case any." His response, of course, was to email me three more submissions.

    Mind you, I am not hurting for submissions. I have a folder of works that I think are at least decent-good (and some are quite good) that I can draw from, and there's plenty in there. But now one of my friends suggests I use Number Eight anyway. Reason? "It'll mean so much to Dave. And it'll get him off your back for awhile." One, yeah, it will mean a lot to Dave - but it'll mean a lot to ANYBODY when I use their work. And two, no, it won't get him off my back. I can guarantee he'll start submitting things at a more frenzied pace, once he has the evidence that I'm a "huge fan of his work". And three, I've always used the art that I thought worked best - I'm not changing that now.

    If the messages continue, I may simply block him.
