sad news for bulldog lovers of the world

Posted in gentlemen on November 20, 2009 by All Conference Vintage

UGA VII, the University of Georgia’s bulldog mascot unexpectedly passed away at age 4 from heart disease. Though I am a die-hard LSU fan and wish only the worst for Bulldog Nation, I love real actual drooling bulldogs and Uga was a very handsome specimen. Pour out some kibble in his memory.
“Uga VII, or “Uga VI’s Loran’s Best” as was his registered name, was latest in the 54-year line of mascots owned by the Seilers. “Mother woke up this morning and said she thought Uga didn’t feel too good,” said Swann Seiler, her voice quivering. “Daddy got up with him and he could tell something was wrong. We have a vet [Sonny Lester] that’s practically on-call just for Uga and he was there in five minutes. They took him to a [veterinary] hospital quick as they could but he didn’t make it.”
“We are all in a state of shock,” Sonny Seiler said. “We had no warning whatsoever.”
In fact, Seiler said Uga VII had just been given a clean bill of health from the UGA vet school a week earlier… Burial details have not been finalized. The mascots are interred in a mausoleum built in the southwest corner of Sanford Stadium. Georgia is the only university in the nation to bury its mascots within the confines of its stadium.”

Jena Malone > Kristen Stewart

AHA! I finally figured out who the fuck that dull as dishwater Kristen Stewart reminds me of- as digitalbath so succinctly declares, “she’s the bad form of Jena Malone.”
Jena- she has a band and was in Saved!

Christy Hartberg as SuperLorna in Russ Meyer’s SUPERVIXENS! They sure don’t make them like they used to!

corporate speak translation challenge

Posted in i am endlessly fascinating, i'm as mad as hell and i'm not going to take this anymore on November 4, 2009 by All Conference Vintage

hey, gang. i’ve had to try to appear busier than usual at work lately.

I received this from my boss, addressed to the 5 person management team:

“I’d venture to say right now some of the reps are unclear on what to do for their sales audits. Do we have written procedures on how to complete a sales audit? If so, we can present to the team and enact this rule. If not, let’s get them together and move forward. This needs to be done prior to the new incentive so everyone can hit the ground running.”
translation in black- use your Yes/Know invisible ink pen to reveal the correct answer:
Frank, write up procedures for how to do sales audits and train everyone.

I find this kind of indirect communication maddening and this is a 2 on a scale of 1-10 of how vague communications usually are. It’s frustrating when suggestions are just thrown out there when they really mean “please do this”.

I hate the BS fake teams that corporations try to present as an operating model. That squishy “we” concept seems to create the most problems- is this task to be done by me or in collaboration with others?

whew, i feel a little better.

Shannon Tweed before gobs of plastic surgery (added bonus: 20 minute workout! (1983)

Does this scream 1983 loudly enough for you? I grabbed this from Google books’ collection of Orange Coast Magazine. You may know her from Falcon Crest, but I know her from Cinemax After Dark.
I saw a lot of young girls dressed as “Eighties girls” for Halloween. I know it’s easy to hit up American Apparel and be done with it. But to really do it right, you have to be subtle. An interlocking and work out towel and suddenly you’ve taken it to another level. Get two of your BFFs together and reinact “20 minute work out”!

I’m pretty sure I had my first masturbatory experience as a kid watching this show.
