Hillbilly Only

They do not come from a non-English-speaking country. They're not new to this country...they probably have to count back many generations to find an immigrant in their ancestry. They write forum and blog posts that smack of racism, they say how they "vote the Bible" and proudly support "Engish Only". They're out there, and they're on ebay and other selling venues. But they don't make sales, no. They make sells.

Sells. As in "woo hoo, I made my first sell today (doing happy dance)."

I just want to scream.

It's "SALES" you nincompoops!! You MAKE SALES. It's a NOUN. You SELL things. SELLS is a VERB.

It's so basic. Why is it so hard to grasp?

How did this happen to our "English Speaking" population?

The Joad Family Starter Pack and Curmudgeon Rant

Back many, many years ago when I worked about 16 hours a day on my computer creating fonts and graphics, I had a program called "Poser." I never really mastered Poser--I found the interface a bit awkward, but it was a nifty program that allowed you to pose human figures and create images with them. This was version 4. There have been many advancements since then, although I have not upgraded. There are also enhancements you can buy that are like presets created by other Poser artists that feature these human figures in various costumes (or lack thereof) and hairstyles. It all seems too sci-fi heavy metal renaissance dragon airy fairy woo woo sex goddess porno 13-year old boy's wetdream starfighter bitch fantasy, with names like the Dragynfyre Goddess Corset Packs and the Barbarian Skeleton Gore Bundle.

This whole fantasy thing won't die, will it? It just gets more and more absurd. I thought boys playing D&D when I was a teenager was silly. And here it is, 30 years later and that genre still exists. Why? It hardly seems worthy and redeeming. Is it just me?

I'd love to see some Poser designers come up with something different. Something not so medieval, but something a little newer, like maybe 65 years back or so. Something also very relevant to the times we are in. Yes, I'd love to see The Grapes of Wrath Pro Bundle, or at least a Joad Family Starter Pack. Seriously. I might even consider upgrading.

So Sick of The Idiot Contingent

When I have a technical problem and I post it to a message forum, people seem to avoid it like the plague.

I think it is because I provide good information concerning the problem, use examples, and compose and spell correctly.

Perhaps if I

I'd get more response.

And people wonder why I've become a curmudgeon.

I Learned a New Fashion Accessory Today

There's this building not too far from where I live that has gone through different ownership recently. I think it used to be a shoe repair shop, then maybe it sold guitars, and then it was vacant...I can't really remember. Or maybe I'm confusing it with something else. Who knows, I didn't really NOTICE it until recently because as of late it's acquired new ownership and a new business and a graffiti-art sign. I think it says "Uptown Grillz" or "Urban Grillz". I don't know which, I really wasn't paying attention. At first I thought it is a new bar...grilled food, even though it seemed really small. Maybe it was takeout food. Then I thought maybe they sell custom grills, you know, for your car. Then I saw something on the news about how some 7-year-old sprog swallowed some rhinestone grillz (almost a Darwin award for this sprog who got his genes from his mommee who bought him such a brilliant gift (at a freakin' FLEA MARKET no less....ewwww...used...yelch)). So I decided to Google "Grillz" and now I know what they sell there.

Holy Crap. Fashion has hit an all time low in beauty and comfort. For someone who had to wear braces for over two years as a teenager and a retainer for even more years after that, why the hell would anyone want to have that crap in their mouth? Metal in your mouth is the most unpleasant feeling. But what the hell is wrong with a culture that on one hand cannot tolerate natural discoloration/yellowing or any slight imperfection that no one would give a second thought to in other Western civilized cultures ("English Teeth" simply do not phase me one way or another...they're just natural teeth), and on the other hand creates this sort of fashion abomination?
