Customer service woes

by @ Friday, October 19th, 2007. Filed under Pissed Off Rants

I work in a heavily customer service oriented business.  One of the truisms in the industry in which I work is that customers will take their money elsewhere if they feel their needs are not being met.  This holds true for many businesses; companies that treat their customer with respect and address the customer’s issues [...]

Writing Faux Pas

by @ Wednesday, October 17th, 2007. Filed under Pissed Off Rants

I have tried a number of different cures in my never-ending battle with writer’s block.  Friends have advised me to do a number of things, from writing about my feelings, to free writing, to brainstorms, and so on.  I have even used writer’s tags to spur the writing process.  One of these tags was to [...]

On October 12, 2000, the USS Cole was bombed by Islamic terrorists in what was only one of a long stream of terrorist attacks that have been carried out against American military personnel.  When the War on Terror began, I remember thinking that it was about damned time someone stood up to these murderous 7th [...]

Ann Coulter and “perfected” Jews

by @ Friday, October 12th, 2007. Filed under Politics, Religion

I do not like Ann Coulter.  Long-time readers of this blog (all four of you) should already be well aware of that fact.  Much like Rosie O’Donnell, formerly of The View, Ann Coulter is a self-agrandizing attention whore who deliberately makes controversial statements simply to get noticed.  However much I may dislike her and dislike [...]

File this under “Obvious”

Twenty years ago, Oral Roberts got on stage and loudly proclaimed that if America did not send him $8 million God would call him home.  I was in my mid-teens or so when this happened, and I was not nearly as wise in the ways of the world or as cynical as I am today.  Even [...]

Rumor has it that a new Firefly movie may soon be in the works.
Pleasepleaseplease, let it be so.

The rammifications of American ignorance

by @ Thursday, October 4th, 2007. Filed under Pissed Off Rants, Politics

One of the reasons that it is very difficult to take American “culture” seriously is our never-ending fascination with people or events of minimal importance.  The average American idiot is more concerned with which celebrities are getting married, getting divorced, having an affair, or making asinine and outrageous statements.  Just as examples, in the last [...]

I’m still standing

by @ Thursday, October 4th, 2007. Filed under Music, State of the Blog

Yeah, I’m still here.  Summer break is over, so it’s time to jump back into things with both feet.  What better way to kick things off than with a song of defiance?
I’m Still Standing
by Elton John 
You could never know what it’s like
Your blood like winter freezes just like ice
And there’s a cold lonely light that shines from [...]
