No, I don't begrudge anyone their time off with their family. Its just that there are a lot of people who don't have that option already. Its shitty that even more people have to work so that someone like wal-mart can make a profit, but there are plenty of industries (and I'm not talking about essential industries like power, water or even gas stations and hotels) that have a 365 day work year already and people act like that shit is just supposed to be.

I find it more than a little infuriating that people are going apeshit about retailers being open on Thanksgiving when its traditionally the busiest day of the year to be open for my industry (movies) and we never ever close for any holidays. D:

When you install Rocksmith on steam it installs ubisoft's Uplay, but if you try and just run the game from UPlay it makes you run it from steam instead.

I am currently doing the lessons. Endless scales and shit but its fun. I have to admit, after thinking it was a problem at first I don't mind the little bit of pain, it makes you feel like you're doing something. I spent two hours today playing so it can't have hurt that bad, you know. I think I'm setting myself up for failure by finger picking though. Not because I'm finger picking, but because EVEN I know I'm doing it wrong. Have to look into it a little more tomorrow after work.

So, as someone who just started trying to learn guitar with Rocksmith 2014, do any of you music people have any suggestions, other than give it time (there might not be any others) for how to make my fretting hand not feel like small monsters are eating my fingers?

Thaddeus Boyd's Panel of Death / Re: Me Gridlock

If you read the whole article it's more clear that the guy's kind of joking.  It's really more about the extent to which Cruz and his people ran the ball backwards (spoilers: they completely fucking own-goaled, giving the Dems leverage they could never dare to ask for nor dream of obtaining otherwise).
Also Ted Cruz is basically single handedly the reason the national dialog hasn't been the shitty obamacare roll out for the last two weeks.

EDIT: I have a theory that the bad roll out wasn't a bigger deal because there is an entire generation of voters who had to suffer through WoW's launch and content updates.

William and I are going to buy motorcycles in May so we maybe could make an adventure of it if you guys didn't do anything until next summer. Job be damned if we planned something early enough they would accommodate. Obviously, if you guys work something out before then we would have no problem with you guys doing you own thing, we live in Wisconsin after all.

DN, I don't have the luxury of working at a job with a static shift. Today I happen to be working a 14 and a half hour shift but that isn't usually the case. The perfect storm of one of my co-workers being out for cancer surgery, two of my subordinates quitting and my supervisor being at a mandatory industry conference has been achieved.

I hate to be THAT GUY (who am I kidding no I don't) but every time I see this posted on Facebook I feel I should bring up that he is specifically arguing against someone else or something else changing an artist's work into something that doesn't convey the original meaning or message. As a matter of fact if I were in an arguing mood I might accuse you of cutting off one of the most important statements of that quote, one that gives context, simply by stopping a paragraph short.

There is nothing to stop American films, records, books, and paintings from being sold to a foreign entity or egotistical gangsters and having them change our cultural heritage to suit their personal taste.

He's not talking about an artist, having realized the special effects potential of the day, going back and trying to more directly convey his original message. We can try to rationalize it all we want, pretend he's a hypocrite or an asshole, but the fact is, he's just a perfect example of when limitations, either in budget, technology, or control, have made artists better.

Off the top of my head Kurt Wimmer had the same problem in transitioning from Equilibrium to the bigger budget of Ultraviolet and don't even get me started on The Wachowskis.

I got off work an hour ago and I have to be back at work in 8 and a half hours.

That's not reverse racism, that's actual racism. I mean, not them switching languages, the fact that enough of them have been in situations that make them believe it's probably a better idea to do so than not.

Especially now that car companies are making it a requirement that you see a mechanic for what used to be trivial stuff. The battery on a Chrysler Seabring is behind the front driver's side wheel well, almost all minivans need the engine mount loosened in order to move the engine enough to reach the spark plugs, I haven't seen a full size spare since before I was old enough to lift one, etc.

Probably every third or forth time I connect to the PSN it kills my network to the point that the only way for me to fix it is to connect my modem directly into my computer, reset my network adapter, reacquire my internet connection, connect my modem back to my router and then reconfigure my network. Its a huge pain in the ass.
