there was something that happened today that really made me step back and think about my life and how old I must be getting. I had this kid that works for me in electronics and today he came up to me and asked me something. I fired back being the sarcastic guy i am and totaly ignored his question and asked if he was taking a break, then asked him where his name badge is. a couple more things were said joking around and then he told me that he had just quit. He had joined the Army and he needed Tomorrow off for something he had to go do with joining the Army. He said they wouldn't work with him to get the day off but I don't think he really tried very hard either. Then as he was walking away I had to chase him down to say thanks for the work he had done and wish him safety and the best. Him and another guy in the department were talking and they told me they and yet another guy were just talking about how they look at me like a FATHER FIGURE!!!!!! flattered and taken aback at the thought of these young men look at me like a father figure. Crap, it use to be older brother now it is FATHER FIGURE!!!!!!! could be worse I guess, they could hate my guts. I guess as a supervisor if I compared myself to the NFL I would be a Tony Dungy type.

Unless you are that "father figure" referred to in that Madona video from long ago... or was that George Michaels???




Seriously, nothing wrong with having good values and and then sharing them with the "yute's" of America.

    • Shit I was into that Duke Nukem shit,
    • As an elitist my first, second and third reaction was a resounding no.   But then after a little self reflection and attesting that I don't have to have a hard drive of beeps, bits and squeals made it OK.   As mentioned clearly noting the format is key.   I believe we have some "Band Made CDR's" onsite as well, but as stated those are official releases and no other format.   While we are going down the rabbit whole, why not include cassette's? Maybe even vinyl? But the caveat would be that the release fits the parameters of the site and no other format exists, cuz at the end of the day its getting the cool bands seen and known to the elite crowd that resides herein.  
    • And while Young & Fabulous does the most excellent TPOH inspired 1980's glam fused rock n roll, the Upper Crust go old old old school and take it back to the 1880's, Once More Into the Breeches, baby. Both band are far to witty with not only their tongues but yours and your girlfriends jabbed into their cheek
    • You're either into that sort of thing or you aren't... I've been into gaming since Doom released in 1993...actually I even gamed before that on bulletin boards before the internet really got going....
    • Washington State has a boatload of glam bands for glamier than the likes of Heart, no disputing MLB, cuz Landrew the love god is well god. Teachers Pett Rail Gibby Lixx Show N Tell Perennial War Babies TKO Bang Gang Talks Cheap Tramp Alley Alice N Chains (pre Facelift) Diamond Lie Lipstick Aurora Bathtub Gin Whiskey Fixx Masheen Heck even the new (er) Prophets of Addiction ...to name a few, plenty more.  
    • What pray tell is "critical race theory"?
    • That tis funny, and I would watch you pillage for hours but I can't play them type of games, maybe its the motor skills, shrug?
    • Sounds like a brilliant marketing campaign "Who needs lawsuits, when you got Slurpees!"   I for one am glad that particular story had an uplifting and not tragic end, minus the profiling of course.   I tell you its addictive, especially if you get some like minded folks talking about this evolution or this mythical or or or. Fortunately my son still buys too many Pokemon cards and we play the actual card game regularly, that my friends is the best thing ever, when it comes to being a parent, sharing something special with your kids.
