Fucking green squares everywhere, what the hell.


Most awesome tour rider ever, courtesy of one of Iggy Pop's roadies:

My favorite part -- "We need one (1) monitor man who speaks good English and is not afraid of death." Or maybe [in reference to Iggy's dressing room] -- "just let someone loose with a little bit of artistic flair...Er, do you know any homosexuals?"

Hell yeah. I wish I was a rock star.

In case you were wondering, I was indeed drunk when opened this blog and wrote that first post. In fact, I had just about the most manly day a guy could have:

  1. I spent most of the morning watching Sportscenter.
  2. I fixed my grill.
  3. I went to Home Depot.
  4. I ate cold leftovers straight out of the fridge for lunch, and washed it down with milk that I drank straight from the milk jug.
  5. I drank a lot of beer.
  6. I grilled and devoured a 16 oz ribeye.
  7. I went to the driving range, and only hit my driver. Irons are for pussies.
  8. I paid some kid to wash and vacuum my car out, then went back over it myself to get the spots that only the owner would care about.
If anyone can have a better Memorial Day than that, I'd like to hear what they did.


I have been in my current job for two years. Another job opens up in my market that would be the next logical promotion for me. In other markets, when this has happened, the people in my job have gained automatic promotions to that job. In my case, they are posting the job, and looking for external candidates, while still asking me to apply and be considered for the job. The only reasons I can gather that they are going this route is that 1) the job would require relocation, and 2) the other people that have been auto-promoted have done this job before at other companies, whereas I have not. That said, for the 3 years I have been with this company, my performance ratings have been above average, and will remain that way for my upcoming review for my 4th year.

My question -- should I be pissed off that they are not just giving me the promotion? Or rather, am I wrong for being a little pissed off they are not just giving me the promotion? Or am I just being a spoiled brat for expecting that it should be handed to me, based on my previous work?

I'm starting a blog. This is an absolutely spur of the moment decision. I don't know if I will keep writing it or not, but whatever.

There is really nothing in life that makes a man feel quite as good as grilling a 16 oz ribeye to perfection, and then devouring the whole thing. God Bless America.
