Ancient friends + modern lifesavers. Let's revisit the glory days of 2011.

I think sometime in 06, back at MySpace, Sarah asked me what I wanted to do. I proposed the idea of an "Interdepartmental Coordinator" position, as the company (now notoriously) had a problem with having the left hand and the right hand work together.

Fast forward a good 6+ years and I've gotten it. I have authority, value, and respect. It's amazing what smiling and having something worth saying will get you.

The lessons learned:
- Stop sneering at bad ideas in meetings
- Don't undervalue yourself (coordinator my ass)
- Minimize criticism, maximize value
- Use those fucking conflict resolution management teachings from 6th grade

6 years and pushing 6 figures. It fucking worked.

an odd, but good night - juxtaposition of old and new friends. solo.

posted to a profile:
Conversations about Surrealism, a chance track on the radio, and here I am 15 and listening to Floyd. A bizarre and apt end to an evening.

It has been a while.

There was an election - I stopped caring after hearing a piece about how the major-media uses faux-polls to make things seems close to draw ratings.

Crossing the Mississippi - Went to NY. The Upper West Side is shitty, snooty, SF. Times Square is Vegas without fun. Great to visit, no desire to live there. Thanks to work, I'll get to visit more.

Winds of change - We totally escaped before Sandy

Bold shit - I love work, and my ability to sound like I know what I'm talking about. Big win.

Peoples at places - Stalker returned and felt like Slow Motion. Medusa is an ass of a venue when it comes to caring. It was rough on Thursday.

In a post from 01 I extole the virtues of the Trader Joes Chinese Chicken Salad. I no longer can. The reformed meat grosses me out. My chicken doesn't need soy proteins, thank you very much.

In just over a day I will be crossing the Mississippi (thanks for the spelling trick, school) for the very first time. I will be Gotham's reckoning.

pausing from creativity to switch to sleep.

clever word play leads to realization.

stop worrying about what's new, and worry about what's now.

culturally and socially, it works.

I try very hard to be neutral.

This position is challenged by contrarians who are justifiably wrong.

I keep them around for laughs and motivation.

Saw Looper, it wasn't bad. Better than Prometheus. It was a long ass work week that will be capped by an average weekend. Next week, on the other hand, will be awesome.
