Randoms While I Loosen my Tie and Pack a Lip for My Day of More Job Searching

  • Ok so my interview this morning went well. I can become a web developer again. Of course I'm not taking it. Why? Would you? Would you cash in the only thing that you really have, youth and freedom, to make 45 grand a year and not be inspired? Now I would have been interested if the company would have been different, if they would have showed me some sort of initiative towards the thing that I want to eventually do, ie. changing the way people learn, but noone really seemed to care about my interests. Look I'm not a snob. I'll take a job being a web developer. I just want to be involved in something exciting and good. Most of these companies are more interested in explaining that every Friday we get free pizza and you can wear jeans. Stick it!
  • I'm listening to Animal Farm on tape. This guys voice reminds me of Carl from the simpsons episode where Homer gets his hair back. I think that Carl guy was that big fat gay guy who is always like dropping in on Radio shows and doing guest spots as like a stand up host. Anyway. it's making my day better. Cheers to you big gay guy and your voice that sounds as though it smoked way way way way way too many Camel filters.
  • So I made a list of things to do today. Here it is -
    1. 25 general job resumes sent out for standard programming jobs
    2. 6 Specialized letters sent out to HR departments and specific emails within the tech department of companies that are doing the good work.
    3. XML Schema test page
    4. MySQl/PHP test page
    5. Knowledge Blogger Update
    6. Hidden counter
    7. Buy a razor
    8. Watch football

  • Oh goodie, Sinner Man is on. Nina, I forgot about her. I gotta go Dl some Nina. Damn! Thanks for her 1L.
  • New York New York by RA is underated becuase of all the hype. I mean the fact that he was in front of the WTC and then released the video like 3 days before it all happened just blew him up and then made everybody who likes his stuff hate this. Well, anyway, I'm trying to make a concerted effort today to not care if other people listen to the stuff or not. I'm gonna like it, no matter what it is, as long as I like it. Blah!
  • Man I'm going to see the Eels and BDB in about 2 weeks. How awesome is that. And I'm going to see them at the Recher none-the-less not some shitty ass seated venue like The Tower Theater. Oh man...if any of you are in town...just swing by and get tickets and meet me there...you won't regret the BDB show I Swear to holy god. I would bet my arm on it. The Eels could be a little off for some I guess. But I know for a fact that Damon Gough puts on a completely original fucking weird show.
  • Ok so now i'm totally out there looking for jobs overseas as my back up plan for Nov 28th. Hey no job, and I'm out. I'm looking at taiwan, China, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia (now that's fucking hot!), Vietnam, and of course going back to Korea (i really wouldnt mind).
  • This site is awesome "oh my news". You guys can't see it because you don't have the Korean text on your computer. But they basically talk about anti-america sediments and how dumb Korean Confuscionist tradiotions are and if they continue they will make them fall behind the rest of the world. Holy shit there's an article called "Hajimah Chigum" which is like saying "stop now" but it's all about like compulsive shopping and being a consumer. Cheers to that site.
  • More Koren Links
    1. This guy married his boss from a hagwan. She's hot. Just as most of them are.
    2. Some other guy talking about hagwan teaching. Not nearly as cool as me. Not even close. None of these guys got laid. You run into these pussies all the time.
    3. Another pussy who let his boss push him around.
    4. This guy probably got laid. He doesnt really say anything, except for the blacklist joint.
    5. These are the kind of people you run from when you see them. These are the jesus people or the "I did something I can't tell you about" people, maybe finally they were a librarian somewhere in Kansas and their husband totally banged every girl in town. So they ran away to Korea with their shitty luggage and a tear in their eye. I ran into a lot of these girls. Sad crew lemme tell you. Side note- You know what's the saddest thing in Korea, the white girls, man they just get outshined by the Koreans. And they go like a whole year without sex, because most of them don't really find korean dudes all that sexy. Man then they come on to you and you just look at them laugh. The only thing that holds it down for the west are the sisters and occasional latina girl who are in the club. Most of them are military so it's kinda beat. (Hagwans are straight up racist, they don't hire anyone who isn't white and semi-thin...no joke)It's friggin awesome to see a black girl in the club tearing it up and just making the korean dudes run away because they know that girl would just crush them in half.
  • Elliot Smith is playing - Miss Misery is dope. I recommend it. I think I heard it in a movie once. Not sure which one, it sounds like it came from Wonder Boys but I don't know.
  • Mrs. Potter's Lullabye is an underated Counting Crows tune. It's long and damn good. Man I haven't even listened to Hard Candy. I can only imagine it's really bad. Oh schapps and so is Saint Robinson and his Cadillac. That song is cool too...and it throws a dap to the Chesapeake.
  • I'm gonna go cook lunch for my dying dad. He's pathetic. He's not gonna make it. That's a damn shame.
