Life Spugs because...
« on: 04 March, 2009, 08:00:25 pm »
All the positivity on the other thread is making me feel a bit sick.
So on with some good old fashioned whining and bitching...

Life Spugs because oor bands latest split cd release ('Northern Bastards: Pict Punk Split') looks like being derailed due to a certain controversy over one of the other bands in on it. Not entirely undeserved like, but irritating all the same. Just a couple of weeks before we were ready to self release and play a couple of gigs with the other bands on it. Everything is up in the air now and we've worked damned hard on the cd design as well as recording our tracks and shmoozing with bands and gig promoters to make it all happen.

Cheer me up by making me laugh at all your misery- which I hope is far more serious than mine (nothin' personal you understand)!
Just a little rough and tumble, Judge man.

I spilled some hot acid on my hand the other day and it hurt.

Best I can do I'm afraid.

... I spent most of last night inexplicably vomiting my guts up and so had very little sleep. I am now extremely tired, achey and short-tempered.

...13 years of university and I'm earning £12,000 a year. I keep losing out on jobs that pay 50% more than I earn because I lack level 3 qualifications and skills like 'Diploma in Housing Management', 'web design', 'proven admin experience', 'NVQ 3 whatever', and 'BTEC in leisure and tourism'. Most of these jobs require skills I could pick up on the job in a fortnight (not sure about web design!), but other people have actually done courses in all this crap. I can't take courses in all of them just on the off-chance, because every scarce vacancy that crops up demands some different specific skill I don't have which is incidental to the job at hand. Being educated just doesn't fit the narrow selection criteria applied by human resources twats any more. Don't waste your time getting an education. I can't recommend it. Get training instead.

But you've all heard this one before.  :roll:
STRIKE !!!

And Kanye West said this: "God chose me. He made a path for me. I am God's vessel. But my greatest pain in life is that I will never be able to see myself perform live."

I've nothing to complain about, other than the baseline horror of everything spiraling into a debt singularity from which there is apparently no escape, but that's now universal so it doesn't count.  But my friends and family...

I have a good friend who, not unlike HoU, has doctorates, scary brains and sundry academic whatsits falling out of his pockets, as well as 15 years of 3rd-level teaching and professional research experience.  He recently and reluctantly went for a low-paid admin-type job in his specific area of expertise in the very institution where he has worked on and off for the past 10 years, and is currently working unpaid to complete a flagship project whose budget has run out... and didn't get it.  So now he gets to show up every day for his voluntary job and waste even more time explaining the ropes to the guy who did get the job.  Unhilarious in the extreme, and I can't help feeling entirely premeditated on the part of his 'employer'.

Everyone at my site has been asked to take a week off unpaid this month and the wage increase we all worked our nuts off for is not being honoured, so jobs aren't looking v secure. Oh and I just found out yesterday that my central heating is borderline illegal.  :)
Hmm, just pretend I wrote something witty eh?

'proven admin experience'

Does reading the above quote as 'Porn admin experience' count for anything?
