Save This Link!!!

   This is a link that will take you to a site with direct contact numbers that will help you to reach real human beings at customer service (I’ve never heard of a more mis-named place) locations that usually only offer an endless loop of prompts to keep you from actually talking to someone about your problem with the company.

<http://www.gethuman.com/>

   Also included are brief  instructions to get past the first hurdle when you call, most of which involve repeatedly pushing the “O” button. 

The list is broken down into sub-sections that will help you find the way to contact the “help” person at many of the most common problematic companies we have to deal with. It’s American in nature, but may help some people in Canada or other spots around the globe that have a problem with one of our world wide corporate conglomerates.

What I missed at first are the links to e-Mail addresses and web sites also provided by some of the places that you have to deal with on so many occasions, telecoms, financial institutions, product manufacturers, etc…  Scan down the list and see if you find any that you wish you could have complained to the last time that they ignored your problems, before you knew how to get past the “Push 1″ for …….., which usually just kept you pushing different numbers and spinning in place until you gave up.

Hmmm, maybe that was their goal?    Ya think?

AT+T ring a bell?   Or, perhaps not ring your (phone) bell?

I’ve had no spam or malware cookies planted on my computer, of course your milage may vary, especially if you’re using Internet Explorer or another bloated virus magnet type browser, and a non-Mac computer. 

Good luck!!!

Up North Update?

palin-rudolph-xmas

Hey, didn’t that rocket scientist from Wasilla have a pregnant daughter that was going to get married?

palin_xmas_card

So, who classified the information about the results of that blessed event, and what ever happened to the high school dropout that was going to be getting hitched into that train wreck of a family? Is he sitting in the audience at his mothers trial for drug dealing? Or, has he turned states evidence and entered a witness relocation program?

levis-mom-sherry                                               Levi’s Mom, Alaska’s best Oxycontin source?

And, is Palin’s son still in the war zone or did he get kicked out for dealing meth?

God Performs…

…..A very late-term abortion?  

It seems to be about 66 years late, if you’re counting.

Paul Weyrich,  who merged the Reagan Republican Party and the Christian Right, and came up with the phrase “moral majority” (which, as it turns out, was neither), and was a force behind the conservative movement’s Heritage Foundation, at long last has died.

He was 66, which could be expressed numerically as two thirds of 666.  

The cause of his death was not immediately known, but  it was suspected to be Crabby Appleton’s disease, usually described as “Rotten to the core”. 

Grover Norquist,  you might consider  this to be god’s shot across your bow.

But as I’ve stated here before, my mother’s advice was: “When someone dies, no matter how rotten they were, you should make a point to always say something good.

Paul Weyrich died.

Good.

Fidel and Sarah on the down-low…

Now it can be told, especially considering that Fidel is likely to start blowing dust farts in the near future, and Sarah Palin has no future except boosting right wing crackers in the South that otherwise have to get their rocks off listening to Chubbie wan Kenobi Rush or (used to before the incident with that young boy) Glenn “The Pecker” Beck.

fidel-castro-wink1

So who did you think that Sarah Palin learned her famous “Wink” trick from?

Sure, she knows all about Cuba, she once saw a film about Florida.

And (almost) speaking of making films, CLICK.

Mixing it….

When people ask me “What do you do for a living?”, the comic in me wants to respond with “You call this living?”. Some days it’s difficult to keep off that slippery slope of humor, especially when you’re wearing skis.  

Most days, I work as a sound mixer on films, t.v. shows, commercials, whatever comes along that requires someone to record sound. To say “I work” is a bit of a stretch, since the hardest part of my job is getting the job.

Sound mixers are often mistaken for Teamsters or mile markers on the highway, since none of us moves very much or (other than in an earthquake) very far. 

About that humor slope, here are some “On the set” jokes that pertain to film crew folks.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

1. How tall is the average sound mixer?

No one knows, since no one has ever seen one stand up

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

2. What do Teamster’s kids do on the weekend?

Watch other kids play.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

3. How many producers do you need to screw in a light bulb?

Producers don’t screw in light bulbs, they screw in hot tubs.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

4. What happened when a teamster had a heart attack on a stage at Universal?

Paramedics had to wake up 14 teamsters to find the correct one.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

5. The difference between a DP (director of photography) and God?

God doesn’t think he’s a DP.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

6. How does a Production Assistant double his car’s miles per gallon?

He takes down the Domino’s Pizza delivery sign.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx 

7.  How many stunt men does it take to change a light bulb?

It takes 20 stunt men, 1 to change the bulb, 19 to say they could have done it better.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Enough for now, check back in  near the end of the month for more.

What he said!

Read this, and when you’re finished, see if you can refute it.

If that link doesn’t work, copy and paste this one:

Welcome back, and……….

Yeah, me neither.

The true pity is that almost all of our high end politicians are or were lawyers, and incarceration is a byproduct of many of these people plying their trade (I know, plying sounds like “Lying”, sort of like how “Lawyers” sounds like “Liars”).

Morrison, Morissette, MoreOrLess

 

Yet another totally unfounded rumor for the internet mill……

alanis_morissette1

                                                Could Alanis Morissette

                                                  be the daughter of James Douglass Morrison?

Look at the photos and make your own decision…….
