Selfish Political Optics (I Don’t Apologize For It)

A new hit! Guest starring (or like the hip hop people say “feat.”) Chris Christie and drums by Rush’s Neil Peart!

You gotta love a hated politician that doesn’t give a shit about his constituents.  And the funny part is, people are RAGING about him lately, but, if you aren’t completely politically myopic, you could see this in his behavior since he was first elected.  I guess the republicans in New Jersey are completely idiotic, until crap like this is brazenly shoved down their throat in the media.

Either way, this song is HERE TO HELP YOU UNDERSTAND the man and the SELFISH EGO that is Chris Christie.  Let us all hope after this, he just GOES AWAY!!!

Created this with:

  • Korg Volca bass
  • Korg Volca Keys
  • Korg MiniKP(red box)
  • Korg MicroKorg
  • Ableton Live
  • Adobe Audition
  • Audacity
  • Novation Launchpad
  • A sampled drum fill from Rush’s track “Red Lenses” (from the “Grace Under Pressure” album)

This took about 4 hours to do.  This was tons of fun.  Listen in headphones “cause they’re really gonna help you on this one…”

So How Is The Job Hunt Going?

A listing for a technical writer position came up in Rockville. SIX different “recruiters” called me for it.

  • All offering different lengths of contract.
  • Some showed a salary range and some didn’t.
  • Some of them called BEFORE sending a job description i.e., “cold called.”
  • 3 left a message.

This was the one that I could understand the most. This is an example of one of the “great” recruiters in “America” that are the “Warriors of My Future” who will save me from homelessness in this “great” nation. These are the people who control my future and destiny and stand between me and that all so important encompassing enthralling career move that will change my life and make things better for me.

Let’s just listen to the magic and hope for my future.

Think I have any hope? At all?

Do you have a clearer understanding of my “attitude”?

I get this at a rate between 6-12 interactions a day. I’ve had these and answered them and tried to work with them now for 7 months. Do you think these are actual jobs? Any thoughts at all about this would be interesting from anyone. I’ve already emailed 2 congressman about this with no responses.

All I can say is WHAT THE HELL?!?!

UPDATE: I just had a job description that asked if “Any time planned off next few months (Dr appointments, Vacations, etc.)? ”

I replied with “I may get sick. I am human. I do not “need” a vacation ever, but it may be difficult to come to work constantly with no time away. Once again, I am human.”

“Fighting The Cyber”

I am no expert in Cyber Security. I do sort of have an understanding of technical jargon. It kills me or literally sickens me, when senior Trump administration officials refer to Cyber Security as “Fighting the Cyber”.

This sounds like a stupid alien race from Star Trek.

I heard this today in a video posted on CNN.

This atrocity of the English language was perpetrated by Steve Mnuchin, Trump’s treasury secretary.

Secretary Mnuchin Fighting The Cyber

I can completely understand the lack of understanding of what it takes to work on Cyber Security infrastructure. It is a daunting and complex task. But saying things like “fight cyber” shows a lack of understanding AND A CLEAR LACK OF CONCERN AND LAZINESS TO THE POINT OF NOT EVEN WORDING IT CORRECTLY.

People in power that treat issues like this with this public level of impotent concern should be fired. I know I would be fired or at least publicly shamed for it.

High paid glory sucking idiots !!! This is the freaking TREASURY SECRETARY. He better start understanding this terminology and learning to use it correctly at least in public statements. It’s terrifying that someone in charge of money doesn’t even understand how to use this term correctly in common dialect. SHAME SHAME SHAME!

Big Deal !!! Who Cares !!!

Racism? Anyone See The Similarity?

Below are two images from our stupid media.  Am I the only one that can see an obvious problem here?  I think both races are to blame.  BOTH!!!   NO RACE is innocent of this trend.  The question is WHY?!

Paul Ryan's white interns

Washington Metro Transit Union picture
Washington DC Metro workers and members of the Amalgamated Transit Union local 689 say they want safer conditions and more respect on the job.

Allison sent me this meme that I think applies to this issue very well.  I think racism will die if we all just admit this..

we are all scum

Mike O’meara Show – Nitrous Oxide Poops

This was in the “News You May Not Need” section of The Mike O’Meara Show on May 25, 2016. I hope it’s OK to post a clip like this but I just had to because I spit up my soda at the end.

I’ve been listening and subscribing to this show for years and I’m going to start plugging it more with my own clips here since I don’t use bookface.

Go to their site and smarten up!  Ya Shart!

BREAKING NEWS:

Candidates considered as an afterthought:

  1. Rerun from Whats Happening
  2. Shirley Q. Liquor
  3. The complex and multitalented Miss Latoya Jackson.
  4. The “Aint nobody got time for that! I got bronchitis” lady.
  5. Nell Carter
  6. Oprah

If you can think of anymore, leave them in the comments.  I may get to them and start a whole new round of polling.  I could make a whole separate poll for the ladies.  We could nearly consider this to be the “primary”.

CeMeGo Ambient 1: Volca Breath

stars

An “ambient” thing I did with Volca Keys, Volca Bass, and Microkorg. The Microkorg is running through the Korg MiniKP (red box). I know it’s glitchy and out of tune in places, but I’m not a musician and I thought it sounded cool either way. It’s at a 40.8 bmp in the key of “whatever”. It’s 7 minutes and 37 seconds of a 2 chord breathing type of thing. Actually this is probably the fastest I’ve ever made anything on an electronic device. All recorded in one take. No editing other than fading the open and close.

I wanted to post it right away but my internet went down AGAIN. Just like the intermittent electricity here, it’s a problem with the ghetto ass’d infrastructure down here in the shittiest place on earth, the DC metro area. I don’t even want to begin explaining how much this area sucks. You pay and pay and get SHIT. That summarizes it. Worst place I’ve ever lived EVER.
