they are building a new bingo club on Norwalk where the old home depot used to be. All the migrant workers are still standing around that area and they look pissed, and not because they destroyed the home depot they used to wait in front of, but because they didn't hire them to build the new bingo club.

Mike's Coffee Etiquette

As most of you know, iI work at a coffee shop. I work at It's A Grind pretty much every morning from 5am to whenever. I get the privelage of seeing many different kinds of people and experiencing their personalities. Although this sounds like sugar and rainbows it can be a bit daunting.

I come to see many habits and traits that customers have that are a little less than appealing, especially to someone who is about to make something that will go in your mouth. Here is a not-so-short list of my pet peeves of annoying customers at It's A Grind:

Manchester Orchestra

Awesome awesome awesome... here's a crappy pic

MO did great as expected, and even though Say Anything was the headliner, their sound quality was boo boo. Me and Ryan couldn't tell what was going on half the time with their songs.

Wow, i just realized Manchester Orchestras abbreviation is my initials. weird.

Also i have decided that blogs are better than bulletins, because bulletins my last for a week, but blogs last a lifetime.

Ps: i was curious so I looked up what blog stood for...since i knew vlog was "video log"....turns out it's "web log"....get it? "web log" Psshhh, some lazy bum thought of dont see me turning "underwear" into "derwear."

I think I'll keep web log.

Watching Fuse

While watching Fuse music videos, i've come to the conclusion that no one tries anymore to make music videos.

I'm sure they spent millions and went on location and used the best camera and video effects money could buy, but the writing for the whole video sucks. The sad part is i realized this after watching only TWO videos.

The first video is Seether "Rise Above This"

If you have seen it, or you jus watch is a TOTAL rip off of Simple Plans video for "Untitled"

WATCH IT (embedding disabled)

Someone dies or gets hurt and it effects their whole family.....All Seether('s director) did was change it from a car crash to a suicide. It EVEN involved the same family memebers being airborne.

I understand the singer of seethers brother commited suicide and thats what the song is about, but music videos are starting to lack creative genius.
Which brings me to my next point.....

This has to be the dumbest music video i've ever watched. I couldn't finish watching it, maybeyou can. Plus the verses sound like someone learning guitar, hell i play drums and i can figure that one out. yikes.

what is happening? go watch the video for Guster's "satelite" or something that makes you think like Brand New "Sic Transit..."
