D, relax, we're not obsessing over set times. It's just fun to state your intentions and see what other people are going to see, and possibly sway them into seeing sets with you. We're not going to fret over it the whole weekend. And yea, I go into these things with a general plan of what I'm going to do and then do whatever strikes my mood instead.

Josh, I think Tommy or someone addressed the camping situation a few pages back, that if you felt like you could organize your group to meet up with us at Walmart, feel free to join in.

not cold, but cool yeah. if im warm i can always roll up the pant legs and maybe the sleeves too. i'd say long sleeve shirt weather at night. let's see..... forecast on weather.com is 83 high to 63 low. that's actually a really low high, I hope the forecast is accurate!

I wouldn't trust forecasts more than 1/2 week out, but that would be great for the 'high' indeed. I'm also being told that they're still having drought weather there, which means we may not get rain NOR the humidity we're expecting.

So gang, I am still working on the roo stuff for that company out of the UK. I wrote the roo this morning asking them a couple of questions. I threw in I really wanted and photo pass (and VIP but that won’t happen) …. I asked them if someone else besides me could pick up the two tics and passes. If they give me photo, I might still consider going. If by a miracle I get vip, I am so there. But both of those probably won’t happen. So again, if someone else can pick that stuff up, it’s got to be worth something inside to get access maybe. At least to the press room which is always fun. So someone picks up the tics, you know they are good if you get them from the actual staff, then sell your two tics for say $100 each, and the gang can use the money for the fest. What does suck is the roo said I would know “sometime before June 1” so that is cutting it close …… peace ….. cr****

I hear what you're saying, but I really like Rain Man so maybe that's it. It's different, I don't know but I'm enjoying this much more than Encore so far.

So I just got back from the marijuana dispensary and I'm about to try one of those paper strips for the first time. No dice on the other stuff yet Eric, but I'll keep trying throughout the week and let you know.

I liked Rain Man alot but it gets annoying after awhile. Don't worry about the other stuff, I lucked into a little last weekend, its all good.

Josh(JSam) we want your group to camp with us. Everyone is meeting at the Wal-Mart in Manchester Wed night. We should be there from 11pm - 6am so anytime you get there in that time range you will find us. Then we will all caravan in together(not sure well that will work but we will figure it out when we are all at the Wal Mart)

05-12-2009, 10:20 AM
Yea, Amy, I don't think it works on the actual airline sites, only for the re-sellers like expedia (as you mentioned). It's because everything except the airline sites use clearinghouses to publish fares and it happens at a set interval.

I'll have to keep an eye on things, I need to book a weird multi-route fare for this summer and it was way too expensive the last time I checked.

Ryan, Ron actually posted some links to live Gomez but it was many many pages back. they're an English indie rock band from the late 90s. They were never really well known in the US and to be honest not even THAT popular in the UK.

I'm doing swell. We had a meeting today and every one bitched about how there is no accountablity and how the managers don't communicate with eachother and also about how when us exmployees have problems, management just says fix it instead of finding out who created the problem to begin with and fixing that person so it doesn't happen again.

Oh and we all need to be thankful we have jobs because some people don't and finally we talked about how it's good that the employee satisfaction surveys weren't all 100% positive because that would mean something was wrong.

That logic is lost on me. If everyone is happy with everything then it's wrong? It's like we are working to stay as imperfect as possible. Another waste of a day.

If your manager actually told you that employees not being 100% happy is a good thing, well, you have a crappy manager. On the other hand, most companies are not in the business of making their customers 100% happy, let alone their employees. How happy they must keep you is in direction relation with the competitiveness of the job market. Because a lot of people are out of work right now, they don't have to keep you happy at all. However, they should be expecting your manager to convince you that you're being treated pretty well even if you're not. ;)

I should clarify a tad more. Our department the illustrious records department has 3 supervisors. Those three each manage about 9 people. Our meeting today was to go over the "employee satisfication surveys". They are surveys where we the employees of said county rate the supervisors and our jobs and supplies and all kinds of nonsense. They list people's names specifically like the guy who runs the entire county. Like any of us have a clue if that guy is doing a good job :nono

So, we are all in this meeting with the supervisors and the lady who is above our supervisors is in admin. Half way through the meeting her and our supervisors decide it would be best if all the supervisors leave the room so the admin lady can listen to any gripes about the supervisors. So they all leave and the employees opened up a can of whoop ass ranting and raving about all kinds of stuff. Some of it legit and most of it pointless and non consequential.

So according to the admin lady, if we all rated everything great, then that would be bad, if we all rated everything bad, then that would be bad too. So we were perfect. On a scale of 1-8 our happiness seemed to average in the high 6's and some even touched 7's.

I agree that it was pretty impressive considering none of us have recieved a raise since January 2008. Major concerns once supervisors left the room were that the supervisors never seem to solve a problem. For instance if I find a mistake and I point it out to my superior, rather than find out who did it and offer more training, the supervisors just say fix it. The one thing that really seemed to piss off the admin lady was when someone piped up and said our lead supervisor told us in a meeting that "employees who do very little work or who don't know what they are doing are much better than not having an employee". This is based on the fact that if we fire someone who is incompetant. We will not be given a replacement for that position, so the supervisor felt it necessary to basically say even if you suck and are lazy (like me actually lol) then that's ok because others will pick up the slack and we all still have a job. The admin lady was pissed and said that's ridiculous. There is no reason anyone who doesn't do their job should be covered for or that it should be acceptable.

So there you have it. Office Space.

That is so true. Jacob is about having a heart attack from what his manager has made him deal with. :nono

Yup and a really good manager will make you feel like everything they ask is reasonable, that you're integral (but not indispensable), that you're all after the same goals, and hopefully inspire some competitive spirit to make you want to do better than everyone else.

I'm not really good at that. ;) I can get about 1/3 of my group working really hard at any point, another 1/3 doing OK but not standing out, and the rest range from 'scrapping by' to 'would need someone to remind them to wipe their arses and can't be counted on for anything at all'.

The worst employees also think they work the hardest of anyone, which makes other people dislike them. And they cannot do a damned thing without asking a dozen questions. I understand wanting clarification on a policy or feeling entitled to an explanation if you are asked to do something unreasonable but every. little. thing. At a certain point, I just start answering their constant "why?"s with "because you value your position here and would like to continue working for me." :nono

Mark, that does sound a bit bizarre. I feel that most people should only be rating their immediate supervisor (or multiple immediates if they take direction from more than one). That works until you reach an executive level, and then those persons' successes should be measured on how the company/organization is doing as a whole as well as the overall satisfaction of employees. *shrug*

Everywhere I've worked, there has been an element of not dealing with the problem maker. It's very frustrating that everyone else gets to work more to deal with the problem rather than addressing the source.

Mark, I think most gov't orgs at any level are completely mismanaged, though, aren't they? That's the stereotype of course. We work w/ a lot of gov't employees (city, county, state, federal & many many countries) and some things that are consistent are 1) management within the orgs is terrible, 2) the employees themselves see themselves as 'workers' (often are union) and don't feel lead to question anything even when there is a clear benefit, 3) people rely on red tape as a way of evading work.

Right, and as a good supervisor you would recognize that with all this free time you need to give me more tasks.

It's all about supervisors who want to get the most out of their employees. Ours don't. If I actually was sat down in an office by these tools and told flat out I would get fired for what I am doing, I would stop. Instead I play the game. i continue to do the minimum to get by. Why? We know there is no advancement here. I have no incentive to do any more than what I already do. Zero motivation. I would be much better suited in a supervisor role actually.

chiapet
05-12-2009, 03:10 PM
Mark, I'm not delusional about my employees being productive at every moment (and actually think it's healthy to turn your attention elsewhere every now and then), but that only works if a person is finishing tasks and meeting his goals.

I make assignments in such a way that they don't have very much downtime. Slacking for a couple of hours after working your ass off all week is one thing, but it's not a trend I tolerate because it's not fair to the others and we would not meet our department goals (and raises and bonuses are based on that, so it truly does hurt everyone). That being said, I do my best to make sure my best people get rewarded because I know they end up carrying a little dead weight.

It must seem like I slack a lot as often as I'm here! :) I worked for 60-80 hours a week at this job for a long time and like a year ago decided that I should pace myself, heh.

Maybe Saturday late night but Friday is much more lacking right now. Who do you guys think will be in it? Although 07 was my favorite one by far, I hope we don't get Ben Harper again. Sorry pancakes.

superjam could be:
friday night anywhere from 12-3am on which stage
saturday looks jammed up - from 1am on there is no stage space except what stage, which i don't think will happen.
sunday - would have to be during phish.
so it looks like it'll be on friday on the which stage. sucks that it'd be during phish....maybe trey will hop on over there once they're done if it goes from 1-3 maybe. lookin for: david byrne, al green, bela fleck, stanton moore/all of galactic for that matter. i wouldn't doubt it if galactic does it with random special guests including jurassic 5 guys. last year they played a night show that wasn't on the schedule. they're tight with superfly so that makes it more likely in my mind. also, their show is so early in the day that it makes me suspicious. just speculation!

oh wow a big reason why it could be friday 1-4, 2-4, or 1-3: after phish, there is no jam, only dj's. they would definitely want to give the old school roo heads something to do after 2 am. maybe thats why phish ends at two also, because they really DON'T! ha. all guesses...but a 2-4 would make sense to keep the jam going late

All sorts of things. I saw Double Indemnity and a bit of The Maltese Falcon last year at 5 AM because I was pissed off at Kanye. (Those are classic old film noires fromt the 40s) and it was awesome. I also watched a documentary on Sunday about Bela Fleck that he himself appeared for to talk about.

They play contemporary blockbuster kinds of movies, they play cult classics like Pulp Fiction or Stanley Kubrick movies... but it seems to be mostly off-the-radar kinds of things like music-related documentaries or obscure/experimental indie films. They even aired the NBA finals games last year I remember.

The guitar sounds very southwest and dark in these early tracks. One Wing is sounding fantastic. This band is continuing to evolve and it is sounding good. Not at all how I was feeling when I first heard Sky Blue Sky, the guitar on One Wing is fucking awesome especially the climax build at the end.

I'm loving this. I never thought I would hear Jeff sing the way is doing it on Bull Black Nova.

Bull Black Nova is such a great song. Can't wait to hear it live.

Josh(JSam) we want your group to camp with us. Everyone is meeting at the Wal-Mart in Manchester Wed night. We should be there from 11pm - 6am so anytime you get there in that time range you will find us. Then we will all caravan in together(not sure well that will work but we will figure it out when we are all at the Wal Mart)

Thank you, Eric! I feel confident that we will arrive somewhere in that time frame. Man, this is going to be too much fun. Let me know if there's stuff we could bring (since we're driving the whole way) to help anybody out. Within reason, of course.


Hi RooKrew!

That '05 schedule is weird. There's hardly anyone playing Friday and Sunday, and they got Mouse On Mars and put them on at 3pm? And out of all 7 years, Radiohead and Neil Young would be the only headliners I really cared to watch outside of a vague curiosity. Unopposed headliner policy blows.

It was and everyone is different I suppose but I will never take more than one hit ever again. Taking more than one hit just one time gave me the worst trip of my life. Scary, crying, insanity.

Salah, I had a Beck back stage pass for Lollapalooza in Toronto 1995 (I won a radio station contest--no joke!!). Although I used the pass mostly to hang out with Elastica while they were getting back rubs and insult Courtney Love. (Fail on the insult part). I also met Moby, and I saw Sonic Youth, Courtney Love, and some people from Elastica all at this big round table together. That was a weird trip, and I was a really frivoulous, annoying 20 year old.

I think the service will depend on the area Salah. AT&T might have great coverage in Florida while having bad coverage/service elsewhere. You should look at some on line coverage maps, i'm sure if ask any of the companies they will all just say theirs is best.
