Things…

It’s been quite a while since I have had some thing to post here, to tell the truth I don’t have much to say right now.  I just felt the need to put something down here other than lists and videos from YouTube.

I guess I can talk about some of the things that are going on here/with us in NC.  I am still a part time Best Buy associate, and as of the 15th of this month I will be a Geek Squad agent.  That should be very interesting.  Before anyone asks, no I don’t get to drive the Bug.  I tried for that position ages ago and failed all but the Apple portion of the test.  Nope, I will be the smiling face you see behind the counter at your Best Buy’s GS.

I finally moved into the HDTV world with the purchase of a 32″ Toshiba LCD.  Gonna watch last weeks Battlestar in HD tonight.  This will be the first time seeing the show in HD.  Hopefully it is a Boomer laden episode because she is HAWT!  The Xbox 360 looks GREAT on it!

From the Dad told you so file, I have given Joss Wheadon a chance and I am watching Dollhouse.  It’s pretty “meh” so far, and since we are watching last weeks episode tonight, if it isn’t good I will be removing it from the DVR.  I have been sucked into Batman The Brave and The Bold as well. I wish we got Cartoon Network HD so I could enjoy it that way.  Excellent series using old villians and partnering Batman with various heros from the DC’verse.

Been playing Call of Duty almost nightly.  Looking forward to the new maps this month, and from what they say the new Modern Warfare 2 will hit this holiday season!  I guess I need to get cracking and finish the single player missions in World at War.

Well I guess thats about it.  Thanks for stopping by.

The Playlist.

I took some time off from the Movie Marathon to scour my iTunes collection for songs I had that reminded me of my Dad.  I took a few suggestions from friends and family, but this is mainly a list of songs that he pointed me toward, and some that I pointed him to.  It’s a good thing I have an iPod.  This list is far too long for CDs.  I thought about splitting this list up over a few entries, then decided it would work just fine as a single big list.

Enjoy.  Please feel free to comment and add your own!

  1. Big Ten Inch Record – Aerosmith
  2. Man In The Box -Alice In Chains
  3. Set It Off – Audioslave
  4. Remedy – The Black Crowes
  5. Bored To Tears – Black Label Society
  6. Tired Of The Rain – Black Stone Cherry
  7. Everything Zen – Bush
  8. Copenhagen Girl – The Buzz Poets
  9. Surrender – Cheap Trick
  10. Shine – Collective Soul Continue reading

Late Night.

Well, it’s 0004 Eastern, I am done with the XBOX for the night and I figured I would take some time to post here.  The past few days have been unbearable.  The work situation has only exacerbated my down mood.  I am at a point right now that I don’t really want to think, or make decisions.  After getting back to NC I felt like I was in the eye of the storm, calm, learning to deal with the loss, but I knew, in typical Fritz fashion that the other shoe would drop eventually.  Now I am out of the eye and into the 2nd part half of the storm.  I don’t know how much more bullshit I can handle before I completely shut off.

I am taking it one day at a time, but it seems there is something out there fanning the flames of despair.  I don’t mean to sound melodramatic.

The person I relied on the most for advice in situations like this is gone.  I guess that is where the problem in all of this comes from.

Tomorrow is another day.  I keep telling myself that, but it doesn’t seem to work.

I guess it is time for bed.  Maybe tomorrow will be better than today. I make no promises though.

Goodnight. Thanks for reading, and thanks for the support.

Jaymz’ Music Video Tuesday!

Freedom?

Without getting into all the details I am just posting this to inform readers that I have left Best Buy.  If you want all the details feel free to email me and I will give you the scoop.  Let’s just say that it was very ugly and under the worst possible circumstances.

If the new mangers are meant to be there to stir things up and make waves  and changes then job well done.  I didn’t know that calling employees out about how they are doing their job so that others can plainly hear is how things are done.  Respect is earned not granted to you.  Think about that the next time you decide to swing your manager “junk” around so others can see it.  It will be interesting to see whether the store where I built great friendships, and relationships with customers and employees alike survives someone that seems to act the opposite of how a model Best Buy employee is supposed to.  I don’t claim to be a model employee, but I did treat the people that respected me the same way.

Oh well, they don’t get to benefit from my expertise anymore.

I feel strangely liberated.  Now to find another job in retail. Stay tuned to find out whats going on!

Thanks for reading.
