Changing of the Guard

Sunday, August 21st, 2005

Once again, the music has stopped and there aren’t enough chairs to go around. As a result, the number of troops has been reduced by one more. Leaner and meaner, fighting machinery being developed. Fat-free and high performance only.

The last real issue to be faced is purging the old blood from the system. Transfusions have been put on the calendar, but time will tell if they take place. If they do, some serious concerns will be put to rest.

Result: Improved positioning within the company, and promises of even greater rewards.

The Impulsive Buy

The Impulsive Buy is dedicated to providing quasi-reviews about various consumer goods. Each review goes off on some tangent, but almost always comes back to complete the review. If it didn’t, we wouldn’t be a quasi-review website. Instead we would be some quasi-babbling website.

GLORY-DAZE

Friday, August 5th, 2005

This is a site dedicated to the older genre of hard rock music. Borne out of the 70’s and 80’s primarily, GLORY-DAZE looks back at those artists and acts who were sailing across the airwaves during the golden age of FM Radio. Not to be outdone, many current day artists continue to keep the flame alive.

You Know You are an Old Draftsperson When…

Thursday, August 4th, 2005

You know how to control line weights by rolling your pencil.
You know that a French curve isn’t a grade change on a language exam.
You remember when blueprints were blue.
You’ve erased sepias with chemicals.
You know a scumbag isn’t just a derogatory comment about someone.
You know what drafting dots are and how to use them.
You know that a Leroy Lettering Set is not an ACAD font.
You’ve had a roll of toilet paper on your drafting board.
You remember when templates were plastic and not a type of electronic file.
You know what sandpaper on a stick is for.
You know that a compass draws circles and not used to find the North Pole.
You remember the head rush from the smell of ammonia.
You own a roll of masking tape so dried out, it will never be tape again.
You’ve played with a drafting dot ball.
You know what the phrase “asses and elbows” means.
You’ve done cut and paste with scissors and sticky back.
You’ve etched your initials into your tools.
You have had a brush tied to your drafting board.
You’ve come home with black sleeves.
You’ve made hooks out of paper clips to attach to your lamp.
You know an eraser shield isn’t a Norton program.
You’ve used “fixative” spray.
You’ve had a middle-finger callous harder than bone.
The words “sepia changes” still gives you a headache.
You’ve used Pounce.
You’ve used a “ships curve”.
You’ve used a “Folding-Bone” before.
Having an Ames lettering guide and never using it.
You’ve worn out the bristles of your drafting brush.
You made a rubber-band ball that is now quite hairy.
You resisted moving from linen to mylar.
Chiselpoint was the sign of experience and craftsmanship.

And finally…

You have a permanent spine curvature from bending over your table.

Thanks to Leonard Eastwood for helping remember the simple days…
