      Y'all don't know how much effort I am putting in to remain respectful here.  I support the efforts companies make towards profitability...you have to look at your money like it has the ability to go out into the world and bring back a few of its friends. This is not a charity or a public service, and they are beholden to some sort of board.  I would like to say that some of these decisions are out of their hands and are being made at the Time Warner/ AT&T level, but I think that is just me trying to give the benefit of the doubt to an organization that I have loved and participated in for almost 15 years. At some point, there has to be accountability.


      I really love you, RT...but I am really, REALLY disappointed.

      I am still really upset about the price hike on First. I don't want to let it die because I think that the more visibility that we have that there is no appetite for a cost increase without any value increase means that sooner or later someone will have to come to the table on this. I have loved this community and I have invested in its well-being. I have come to the defense of the decisions made in the past, and I have always taken a 'wait and see, they know what they're doing' approach. But to raise cost for broken promises and can kicking? 

      These are my words, and my words alone:  

      I want y'all to know that you have some amazing people that work for you. Jackie is by far one of my favorite people on here, and she deserves a lot of credit for putting up with people like me.  I hate the fact that she gets put into the position of having to manage a community that her bosses do not show consideration for. It isn't fair to them to have to address a mess that didn't have to be a mess. You could have worked with the community years ago and developed things that we have asked for. You could have thrown us some sort of bone; but it is clear that we are not valued by the C-suite. This is heartbreaking to me.

      So I got tapped to do a really cool thing next week. I am getting to fly with our Senior Vice President to University of Michigan and talk about how awesome our company is to work for. I am BY FAR the least senior person on this trip, so its a little daunting, but they wanted someone 'young' and 'vibrant' and someone who can relate with college age human beings.


      If you would have asked me this five years ago, I would have said that I was all of these things, but now...I'm starting to feel a little older now. It is a morose feeling, to realize the chapters of your life are passing by and are becoming distant memories. I was in college when the Twin Towers came down.  I watched the OJ Simpson chase live. I used to have to make sure no one picked up the phone because I was getting ready to get onto the world wide web.


      Hanging out with all of you on this forum does help me, though. I get to have great interactions with people who are most decidedly a 'younger' generation. I feel like, though I have a few more miles on me than most of you, that I can share my life with you as peers, and hopefully my experience is helpful to you.


      So, next week, when I'm wearing hipster wear (we call that Smart Casual in the biz) and I'm trying to relate to the best and brightest of tomorrow...I just hope I don't look like I'm trying.

    • The practice of Tolerance

      6 months ago

      Priest NonSequitur OCC Consular

      So I want to share something with all of you that happened this week. Often times conservative Christians are labeled as being bigoted, intolerant, backward monsters incapable of any sort of co-existence with anyone that disagrees with them. My dad, a Baptist preacher and staunch conservative is proof that this is not the case.


      My best friend growing up has a child who is transgender. We have known him since he was a baby girl in diapers. Our lives have been intertwined forever. A few years ago, she began transition and is now currently on hormone replacement therapy when she transitioned to male. He has a boyfriend who is also transgender. From the moral perspective my dad inhabits, this is immoral on many levels and he disagrees with the lifestyle. And yet, this weekend These two transgendered men came to their house and helped them move. My father treated them as he would any other man, calling them "gentlemen" and "boys" and not shying away from asking them to pick up heavy items or jump up in the truck to help move things around. The entire time...he treated them in the manner that they wished to be treated.


      I think that this is the example that needs to be elevated as the RIGHT way of doing things. My dad does not agree with them and has issues with their choices, but he treated them with the respect that they deserved and acknowledged their own agency. If they would have asked him his thoughts in the matter, he would have told them that he didn't agree with their choices, but that he still absolutely loved them and that they were still family.


      In this climate of forced affirmation (You WILL agree with me, or I will call you out as a homophobe, sexist, bigot, etc...) we don't often hear about things like this. Dad was not grudgingly accommodating; he was earnestly treating them with respect from his heart. For some, this is not enough. For some, they not only want to be treated the way that they want to be treated, but they want to control how others think, feel, and believe. I think that this is very unfortunate and takes us backward. People should have every right to disagree with the choices of others, and should only be judged on HOW they act towards others.  It is possible to not agree...and still love.

      So I'm listening to a playlist and a song came on the had a memory attached to it that I totally forgot.


      So my family is musically talented. My brother and I both have music degrees and our mom has perfect pitch. Literally, she'd correct my playing from the kitchen "Jared, that's A-flat in the alto, not A natural."  


      anywhoooo, 


      Because of this, we were often booked to do various concerts. I made a lot of side money singing at weddings and funerals and valentines day things. So one time my mom and I got booked for a wedding. It was good money, nearly $500 for 2 songs. $250 for a couple hours of work sounded good to me, so I agreed. there was only one problem:


      I didn't think about how awkward it was singing romantic music with your mother.  We were asked to sing "Just a Kiss" by Lady Antebellum. It's a good song, but I'd much rather have sang it with someone I didn't know. Still, we were professional and killed it. I had forgotten about it until JUST THIS VERY MOMENT when the song came on and the memory came flooding back. 


      yep...it's still embarrassing, but I got paid so there's that.




      Ooh, that's another thought. I feel like I should get back into the gig again; there is good money to be made, and I have an excellent range and breadth.

      And on that note I have a question.


      So I see a lot of commentary about dick pics on Reddit and other places on the internet.  Since I am old, I have many questions, but there is one that I'm gonna ask the ladies here (I'm iffy about putting this on the Ask the Ladies thread because its a little more vulgar than I am comfortable being:)


       So here's a question: Do women actually LIKE getting them? From what I see online the answer is a big no; however how would the phenomenon be as popular if it didn't work out occasionally? My only frame of reference as a guy is to ask myself the question if I would enjoy women sending me...what...tit pics? the hypothetical answer (assuming that I didn't have a moral or ethical objection to it) would be, yeah, awesome. The dude in my head that drives my libido has no problem whatsoever with an absolute flood of those things; however he doesn't get to come out and play as his pals reason, ethics, temperance, and modesty keep a tight leash on him.  Now..If I'm thinking about getting a bunch of sausages, I nope out of that...but that's just because I'm not ATTRACTED to sausages. 


      But to the question: do women like to have random dudes shoot a dm of their junk?

        It is going to be difficult; though you have the Christian tradition to hold you together. One of my favorite musicians is Catholic- Matt Marr. Catholics can co-exist with Evangelicals or Protestants, so long as the foundation is the same. I would definitely get on the same page before children, You don't want confused kids on your hands.

        As with all good things in life, it can't come without some struggle. Coming from different religions gives us a unique positive, in that we know we have to work through differences. In the end, it makes it all worth it and better than just kicking the can down the road.

        I got heat at work, not from this page, but because I was 'posting on FB during work hours' and someone at my job complained to my manager (who couldn't care less because I get everything done and work my ass off.) My manager just told me to be careful, so I locked FB down to Friends only, put all my co-workers outside that box and now they only can see on FB what I choose for them to be able to see. But a simple google search can find my RT profile; so I removed any demo. info.

    Jambalaya (homemade) garlic bread, cake. Now that I'm an adult, I'd like a nice, tall, glass of scotch. 

    Male Lion. I would love to lay against Simba while losing on the Xbone

    The Earth is Flat. I just want to see what that would look like.

    Dengar, you can't tell but he's pretty good at telling a joke.

    Hmm. Well, if I were to pick a car that would aesthetically look like a spaceship but not actually be a space ship, I would have to pick the Eagle 5 from Spaceballs
