I spent a good part of my day digging around and setting up my profile as it came strongly suggested by an agency friend. There are some very well known and respected creatives/execs on there with very low followers and vouches. I’m left to assume that the site is just now starting to gain momentum.

It would be nice to arrive at the party early for once, eh?

That’s funny...I’ve been on a Eric Andre/Hannibal Buress YouTube hole for the past few days. My ideal list at the moment would be:

  1. Zach Woods
  2. Tracee Ellis Ross
  3. Issa Rae
  4. Will Arnett\David Cross
  5. Kristen Schall

I once designed a doubled sided business card for a client at their request. After printing off a sample card they looked at me confused and asked: “Which side is the front?” I paused and replied: “Well, I guess that is up to you”. What followed was a 15 minute Abbott & Costello routine of me handing the card to them over and over showing that the “front” would be however they chose to hand it over to the recipient. In the end they still didn’t get it.

Came here to say this, wasn’t sure anyone would get it.

Anxiety triggers my asthma in a big way. I have quite a bit of PTSD due to a past intubation from an asthma attack. So, I can work myself up in an instant about smells, allergies, whatever. CBD has completely removed that anxiety and worry from my life and I’m no longer walking around with one hand on the rescue inhaler. It’s been wonderful.

I could be wrong but it looks like a Roland AX7 to me.

I hope they start with the acoustics. The sound bounces around that room like crazy.

Do you sell any work, if so I’m incredibly interested

I work with a police department, a pretty busy one, as a dispatcher. Handle radio and calls for service...

Getting DUI arrests is a huge figure of our enforcement. Unfortunately, until recently the higher ranking officers may not have been fully understanding the impact Uber has had. Patrol officers have been put under pressure to get their DUI stats up, and that their work ethic is poor unlike the officers that came before them a few years ago.

I've had officers stop in the office, complaining that the bar they were watching had nothing but Uber rides coming and going. Some of them will actually complain about Uber. Not all, the younger officers are more understanding if it.

I look at them and say, "at least it beats the paperwork and court you'll have to do when they get someone killed in a crash." They're under pressure to "get results" but some of them fail to recognize or acknowledge that Uber is much better at preventing a DUI related incident than an officer itching to notch a tally on his yearly DUI total.

Note 1...

Need to amend this to note I said this was until recently. I should have clarified that new command staff is much better. Officers whose citation numbers and DUI's are disproportionately higher will actual get some extra oversight. My current supervisor has actually ridden as their partners to observe them and pull their car's video to watch.

I've even had officers, in the past, complain that command staff doesn't get it when it comes to Uber. So, the sentiments do go both ways at times. I should have not been too one sided.

Note 2...

This is about a few officers and an old command staff and does not represent the law enforcement community as a whole. Most of the officers I work with are cool and understanding.

Note 3...

Nowhere does this mention quotas. What this is describing is not a quota, but more about command staff questions the work ethic of a few. IE, "If Jim had 60 arrests one year, why does he only have 45 this year? He must be getting lazy." We have officers who have high DUI numbers and we have some while barely have any.

  Amend: after reading so many responses to this specific point, I won't edit or delete what I've said to be fair...but I'll admit I was wrong about this viewpoint not being a quota.  I was thinking of things in different terms, but no matter, it still a type of quota.

And despite what some of you are saying, I am not defending this practice. I wouldn't have written this at all if I were. I believe in enforcing the law fairly, not this.

Note 4...

A DUI is a DUI. The officer isn't an asshole because he's actually doing his job. It's the outdated viewpoint of administration that I've was making note of...newer officers and younger guys mostly understand the benefits of Uber...it's some of the officers working 30 years who are out of touch

There was an episode of This American Life about this. Things did not end well for the officer who fought against the quota in the story if I recall correctly.

I watch all the time but I can’t help myself to assume that he’s banging every single person on set.

Very talented, very much an asshole.

Have you spoke to your doctor about what medication you are taking the depression could be a side effect of it or if the depression was already there some medication can make it worse.

I was once on a asthma medication that was causing anxiety and heart palpitations the doctor I was going to said the palpitations are normal and offered to right a perscription for Xanax . Which I refused and found a new doctor and turns out no I dident have asthma at lest not enough to be on meds. And the heart palpitations where a very serious side effect that could have cause life long damage or death so yea screw that doctor.

But you should get checked out about the depression and meds.

Also for depression I use a tea called " yogi positive energy tea " I have a seasonal condition called s.a.d .

Which you luck with your journey if you some one to talk to when you feeling down pm me .

To add to this, I had a particularly bad bout of depression a few months ago and the culprit turned out to be Singulair which I take daily. I only mention this because I never would have thought that such a tiny dosage could cause such darkness and I feel lucky that my doctor and I were able to figure it out so quickly.

Be well.

Good. Hate seeing this cancerous shit on checkout counters.

American Media, Inc. owns more than just those grocery store rags. A lot of those bullshit Facebook “news sources” (blogs) are owned or funded by AMI.

Witch Hazel is also a good topical antihistamine. If your hives are still bothering you, it’ll take the sting away.

For fans of The Exceptions (Detroit), Boss Riot is guitarist Ryan’s new project and they’re great.

The Exceptions "Flowering Scrunch" 7" gets some heavy play in my DJ sets. Thanks for the heads up on Boss Riot!

With that being said, Netflix needs to bring an ark full of money to Jon Stewart’s doorstep and give him his own show. I’d be ridiculously ecstatic for something like that.

Didn’t HBO already do this and he delivered an unwatchable cartoon pilot? Either way, I don’t care what he makes or who he makes it for. I just need him back in my life.

He paid Stormy $130K to do pretty much that.

That just what he paid to keep her quiet. I’m sure the invoice for the creepy sex was so much more.

I hate to be grim but he sounds like a man who is afraid for his life or is preparing to take his own. I cannot believe what I just saw.

They were really amazing. I was at the cd release party show for the second album in Detroit but was out of town for their final show. In 1999 I bought a bootleg vhs of a show from 1995/96 I think at the magic bag in Ferndale. It was billed as a suicide machines show but had Parka Kinds and Skolars as openers. Paid $50 for that tape. Worth every penny.
