Things that Chap My Ass

So these are a few of the things that I have a problem with currently:

#1  is haircut wigs.  That’s right, haircut wigs.  You’ve seen ‘em.  They use them in television and movies for actors/actresses that get their haircut in the course of the film/show but don’t REALLY get their hair cut.  The part that chaps my ass is that you can tell it’s a damn wig!  In this day and age of special effects and make-up, can we not get this to work without making the person wearing the wig look as if they have been shampooing with paint thinner and have a huge tumor or abnormally large head? ugh.

#2  is Whoopi Goldberg talking about peeing in her pants on broadcast television.  It would be okay if it were on an infomercial…… but it isn’t.  It sneaks up between programs and tries to be funny, but as far as I know, there’s nothing funny about peeing in your pants.

#3  is the fact that I can’t find any damn hazel nuts or dry roasted, unsalted cashews out here in the middle of BFE Indiana.  Isn’t this where they grow stuff? the heartland? WTF? I need nuts!!
and yes, I just wrote that!!

#4  is gay men calling each other “girl”  If you’re a gay man, you’re attracted to men, right??
Where the eff does a GIRL come into this equation anywhere???  You’re a man.  He’s a man.  You both like men.  Stop it with the girls shit.  If I can’t use the word “gay” anymore because it’s offensive, then gay men shouldn’t be able to call each other girl! Deal?

#5  is Keurig coffee.  Aren’t those little plastic individual coffee packages going to ruin the environment and all that crap?  Seems like a huge waste.

I think I’m done for now.

It's March

I need to write in this thing.
I have plenty to say but no time to say it.
Too busy looking for work, polishing resume, avoiding a reel by making a portfolio blog instead.
I have alot to complain about in this whole job search process. ugh.
Don't understand how it is that a Graphic Designer is expected to know, not only how to create graphics, but also know how to do web programming and edit video.  BUT if you look at the web programmer jobs they are NOT required to know how to do graphics or edit video AND if you look at the video editors they are also NOT required to know graphic design and web programming.
What the fuck is that shit all about?
You want to get a graphic designer to do three jobs for the pay of less than one?
I seriously have seen several posts that expect a designer to be able to edit and program for the web for a grand total salary or 35K!
Seriously?
ugh
