Liam and I got a kick out of this one.
People around me are jealous because the voices only talk to me. But have no fear I will pass along everything I hear. There’s this new lady here at work that maybe someone can relate to. A know it all, that even though she’s only been around for a couple of weeks, doesn’t need any training. As I’ve said before, I work with people who have developmental or are dual diagnosed and have severe mental illness as well. Like anywhere though, when you’re dealing with people, you have to get to know them and it takes time. This lady is classic though, on day four she’s already turning people in and telling them how they should deal individuals. I haven’t really had anything to do with her yet, I’m a little higher on the ladder, but I’m kind of looking forward to my first run in. Down the hall though, the other day I heard her talking to someone about her “area of expertise”. Made me laugh hard enough that I’m sure I was heard. A fucking “area of expertise”? Classic! I realize that SOME people actually have an area of expertise, but to hear someone spout that made me want to puke. How fucking cocky and egotistical. “Know it all”, is what we called it when we were kids. Ahh, maybe it’s jealousy. I know a lot of shit (90% useless) and dabble in a lot of things, a poor excuse for a renaissance man really, but an “area of expertise”? Well I guess I do…in drug and alcohol use/abuse. In other words, I am an expert in how to get fucked up. Better yet, I KNOW how to be a loser. At the same time thare are lots of people who were better losers than I was, not sure if I spent enough time in that state to qualify as an expert, a masters as opposed to a PHd. Even though it’s been almost five years, I don’t know if I would say I was an expert on staying clean, still got a ways to go before I get my doctorate in that. So, I’m a pretty busy guy at work but I think that just to feel better about myself, I’m going to take some time to harrass this lady.
My old friend Alex (shit, about 25 years now) hit me up with some interesting tidbits the other day that are worth sharing here. If you claim to be a TRUE ladies man, you might be interested in the X-Ray Pin-Up Calendar. At the very least, a trip and a half. He also shared with me this clip of John Trudell from a much bigger documentary that was done on him (what do you know) called “Trudell”. I got into what he had to say and now will need to see if I can’t pick up the whole thing.
Theres also another vid someone did with some of his intense poetry, called “Look At Us” that you can follow that up with here. Thanx Alex!
Well now if you follow along here, post to post, in my chaotic jumble of words, thoughts and musings, which everyone should as this place is far superior to anything that has been or will be on the interenet, you already have heard of Unbiased. Even though I’ve had this one for almost 20 years, it was released in ’93, when I gave it a spin a couple of weeks back, I couldn’t tell if it was supposed to be played at 33 or 45 rpm. Sounded good both ways really, but what the fuck do I know. Elliott said that at 33 the vocals sound a bit more human, which left me thinking it sure would be cool if someone did sing that way, just kinda unusually cool. See what I mean, Unbaised – Greedy Human @ 45rpm. So Shawn and Jay, did a little research on it, found their Myspace and BAM, there it was plain as day. The last tune they have for your consumption there is the last tune on this 7″, played at 33 rpm. Mystery solved, and as I am sometimes easily amused, I feel satisfied and somehow the record is now complete. These guys, outta Japan, didn’t have a whole lot of output, this one that I have, a split with Unholy Grave and a couple tracks on the Thrash Ahoy comp, according to Discogs (which is where I stole these killer scans from, I hope to have a running scanner before too long). I guess they’re kinda of a grindcore outfit and kinda early on in that genre’s history, but they are one of the more interesting ones. Not that balls to the wall, non-stop screaming type of thing, they slow it up, just a tiny bit to give you some heaviness and maybe a little more digable to people that might not be down with straight up, generic, grindcore. Try it out, Greedy Human was my favorite,
