SUA policy statement and Web Update

Well I must admit that after a hard days work with my fellow union members building support for a new and improved Spinneyhead, we are all exhausted. Negotiations are due to resume on Monday, but it appears after the CEO’s consolatory post yesterday regarding a new colour schemes and fonts, progress is finally being made. The SUA will monitor closely to determine if this is just an attempt to stall website improvements, but given the honesty and general niceness of Ian P., we are inclined to believe this gesture could lead to long term improvements for readers and staff alike. We did stop asking for the $30k Jacuzzi with built in DVD, so we are doing our fair share as well.

In other news, I have managed to spend the day trawling through the bowels of the web looking at other Blog sites and the general depravation global computer linking has caused. I guess this will sum up how I wasted a perfectly good Saturday:

Myth: There are bigger problems than Masturbation, like drugs and AIDS.

Reality: Experts estimate that there are at least 150,000 Americans masturbating RIGHT NOW! Masturbation costs American businesses at least $3.14 billion in lost productivity every month!

Think about it, 3.14 billion daily. Just for the record, that statistic was brought to you by Americans for purity. After perusing all around the net and evaluating current trends in web design, I do believe the Spinneyhead management team are on the right track, but should look towards something like SourBob or even better, a website so full of good design and happiness, Katie is Good, cause she rocks and to me at least, represents all that is good about blogging.

During this quest for the “real” web, e.g. people that actually use it just to have a voice and not worry about hits, Portal of Evil proved invaluable. Man oh man, talk about the worst of the web and really there is no competition. I have been to midget hooker websites and the occasional gangsta white boy from mobile, Alabama. Please note, Mobile is an actual town in Alabama, and yes, the state is one big trailer park.

Now for something that is pissing me off something evil! What the f*ing hell is “emo”? As a teenager and young adult over in the early nineties we used to listen music called Indie and Punk. No labels, just some good old middle class white boys from the suburbs with some misplaced angst never meaning no harm. Well, well, my man over at Fourfa has gone as far to label seven types of “emo”, ranging from old school punk to the Smashing Pumpkins. The website even provides “emo” fashion tips, etc. My plea to the “emo” scene: Leave my f*ing Fugazi, Minor Threat, Longwave, Smashing Pumpkins and every other good guitar indy band well f*ing alone or there will be a big can of whoopass opened on your skeazy arses. Whoever was paid money to come iup with the term “emo” and then build a scene out of it should be shot. Scum. I am afraid to listen to my own downloads now. Twits.
