Yeah, it was amateur hour last time I donated blood. Never again.

i hate that shit. last time i donated, someone asked over the phone if i wanted to donate platelets and said it was a similar process. after about 13 minutes into the process, the person said "only 73 more minutes to go!" i giggled, thinking that they were joking. they were not. platelets take 90 goddamned minutes. i was stuck watching entertainment tonight and some shitty "the rock" guy movie. i also didn't eat since i normally just treat myself to a big meal after donating. i was sick for DAYS afterward. i gave up on donating after that.

The new bridge allows travelers to bypass the dam much more quickly and with no checkpoints.

Or the other way around. I'm usually in a hurry to get there but I did also dread the ride home. Once you've driven through the Hoover Dam a few times it's just a speed bump on the way to fun.

so true. I usually drive over the bridge on my way there and drive through Laughlin on the way back.

the bridge being open will be very cool.

sin213
10-14-2010, 09:52 AM
i've always gone the Laughlin route cause of the traffic delays on the dam. people slow down to gawk and it can take an extra 30-45 mins to take the dam route. now that there is a bypass, i might start going that way. technically, it should be the faster route.

You should have if you didn't. It was a fantastic show. I liked it even a little more than Tucson but there were certainly more talkers at this show. It apparently sold out at the door or came really close but great energy from the crowd and the band had some set list changes too. Pomona tomorrow!

I recommend the Hidden House on Wed/Thurs. I might be there tomorrow, one of my friends is performing. It's free, and they usually have about 10 comics. It's not really an open mic...the guys who run it make an effort to keep a balance and only allow one or 2 newcomers each show. There's a rotation of experienced regulars, and usually one or two touring performers. A lot of times, it's someone who is the opener for the Improv that weekend, and they come into town a day early and warm up there.

The Gorillaz show was a blast last night! Ivy and I had a lot of fun. Saw D$, did not see Jason. I also picked up a cool poster for only $10. Pretty, pretty good.

yeah, we got there a little later than we would have wanted. i looked around for a group of you guys here and there, but ultimately we were in and out of there pretty quick that night.

that was a great show they put on. they are really tearin it up across the US this time around!

He's in his 20s. I have no idea. He's the editor on my movie and he's got hundreds of DVDs, so I think that might have something to do with it. But yeah, I was on him about it pretty constantly when I found out he'd never been to a show and likes the band. He said he was real glad he went.

Nick and I went to the fair on Saturday for the Godsmack show and it was a lot less expensive then I had thought it would be. If you get there before 6 it is buy one admission get one free which ended up only costing us $10 total for the two of us. The rides were outrageous though at 50 cents per ticket and each ride costing 10 or more tickets. So we are probably going back on Thursday for the bracelet day so we can ride some rides. If anyone plans on checking it out it was actually pretty fun. We also found free parking in a neighborhood back behind one of the $20 parking lots off of McDowell, which was really helpful. The show wasn't even that full and I had purchased the tickets beforehand. Had I known it wasn't going to be that crowded I would have done the GA and saved $50+ on tickets.

So how did everyone vote, or how are you planning to vote? For all of the federal & state races, I voted for Democrats, which is kind of disappointing because I'm not even registered as one but I just feel that to be a Republican candidate in this state, the person has to have views that are radically different than mine. I could've stood to do some research before making my selections but I didn't make it to this site (http://www.votesmartaz.org/) until I got to the propositions.

Prop 106 (essentially an attempt to overturn "Obamacare") - no
Prop 107 (eliminating affirmative action - I accidentally voted yes; I don't know what happened there but I would have preferred to vote no
Prop 109 (making hunting a constitutional right) - no
Prop 110 ("authorizing the sale or lease of state trust land without auction or advertisement in order to protect military installations & operations") - no
Prop 111 (changing Secretary of State to Lieutenant Governor; having Governor & Lt. Governor run on the same ticket) - yes
Prop 112 (changing initiative filing deadline from 4 months to 6 months prior to each general election) - no
Prop 113 (guaranteeing the right to vote by secret ballot) - yes
Prop 203 (authorizing the use of marijuana) - yes
Prop 301 (transferring the balance of money in the land conservation fund to the state general fund) - no
Prop 302 (terminating AZ Early Childhood Development & Health Board programs) - no

http://arizona.sierraclub.org/political_action/pa_2010/General%20voter%20guide_web.pdf


YES on Proposition 110
Support Open and Accountable
State Trust Land Exchanges

Proposition 110, for the first time, provides a way to exchange state trust land for federal lands that includes accountability and transparency. The exchange process will have an open and public process that identifies all lands that will be exchanged up front, requires two land appraisals, includes an analysis of the impacts, and requires two public meetings. All of this must happen prior to any exchange moving forward. This helps limit backroom deals that have been a problem with some past exchanges. Each land exchange must also go to the voters, so the voters have the final say and provide a screen for ensuring that an exchange is truly in the public’s interests. This will also help limit the number of exchange proposals. Exchanges can only be for two purposes including providing for the proper management, protection, and public use of state lands or for the protection of military facilities. The Sierra Club has opposed most of the past land exchange measures, but we are supporting this proposal because it includes transparency and accountability to ensure that land exchanges are in the best interest of the trust and the larger public. We urge your support of Proposition 110. For more information, visit http://VoteYeson110.com.

Thanks for setting me straight. Too late now of course, but could be helpful for others here who have yet to vote. I got distrustful from my cursory reading based on the language of "authorizing the sale or lease of state trust land without auction or advertisement in order to protect military installations and operations." That just seemed like it lacked transparency, making it ripe for corruption. The second part of the proposition is something I would support more but it didn't seem to be the main thrust.

Like I said, cursory reading.

Tomorrow is my last day of work for nearly 2 weeks. Today was a bear since we got new computers and one of the most vital programs I have to use was completely unavailable to me. I got paranoid at one point when I was driving home about getting in a car accident because then some of the work that I had set aside for tomorrow wouldn't be addressed and if they figured out it was me that was supposed to get it taken care of, they'd think I had slacked off in not noting what I was doing for the client and I'd be perceived negatively the way I do others in my department who don't note or follow up on their shit.
Oh, and tomorrow is also the day that the 10 finalists for the ADP film festival are announced. As confident as I was a couple weeks ago, I'm starting to get really anxious about my prospects. Guess I'll know the score in 12 hours.

I heard an awesome piece on NPR this morning. It was basically an op-ed from a former political candidate on the smear ads this campaign season.

By the way people, the Doug Ducey smear stuff is real.

I used to work for Cold Stone CHQ. While I was there, the sales people were under immense pressure to open 1,000 stores by 12/31/2005. They did so by adopting the "Starbucks" model (open a bunch of stores and make coffee a daily need-to-have). He failed to realize that ice cream isn't a need-to-have. It's a treat that people will not indulge in every day.

In any case, hundreds and hundreds of franchisees lost their shirts because of the failed business model. (Also, the company almost went broke, which is why they laid off 30% of their CHQ staff at Christmas time 2005--including me. The company was very near to bankruptcy at one point).

I happen to know Ken and Jen Gornall personally (Ken and Jen appear in the anti Ducey ads). Ken and Jen lost everything including their retirement and their home trying to make their business work. They were sold a bag of rotten goods--mainly they were lied to about their location and weren't allowed to back out; they were also lied to about the profitability of stores. They were only given references for the most profitable stores and the sales team used what most would consider to be illegal franchise sales tactics. It's pretty sad what happened to them--and they aren't alone.

Google "failed cold stone franchises" and you'll find tons of information and stories from other franchisees.

Doug Ducey is a super nice guy and a good people-person. But there's a reason that, after the Kahala/Cold Stone merger, he was forced out. Not resigned. Fired.

The aborted raid on Arizona's water future

If you care about our long-term access to Colorado River water, there's good news. A raid on the CAP board failed to put a majority in the hands of a myopic crew obsessed with cost cutting. The slate of strip-government-to-the-bones candidates was running for five seats on the 15-member governing board of the Central Arizona Water Conservation District. With the exception of incumbent Lewis, they were long on ideology and short on any knowledge of water issues.

In an ironic twist, presumably unintentional, current board member Jean McGrath sent an e-mail urging voters to pick the right small-government candidates by using the acronym: MR. LBJ. President LBJ, of course, saw lot more than a minimal role for government in creating his vision of the Great Society.

Two of the raiders, Lewis and Cynthia Moulton, a nurse who handled a rehabilitation center, were elected. But voters also picked three thoroughly qualified candidates who understand the long-range measures necessary to ensure our water supplies: former Phoenix city manager Frank Fairbanks, current board member and water consultant Tim Bray and Jim Holway, a former assistant director of the Department of Water Resources.

Kathleen Ingley is an editorial writer for The Arizona Republic.

The initiative in 2000 failed. The initiative in 1998 passed but had a "drafting error", whatever that means and in 1996 it passed but the legislature overturned it.

eta: funny this was sitting minimized when the conversation was still relevant and I clicked submit and see all you fine out of staters.

Michael, i'll be in Tucson for the weekend seeing Joanna Newsom and Calexico otherwise I would hook a brutha up.

Becca, i'm disappointed I won't get to hang out with you guys but have fun!

We still have 300,000 provisional and early ballots to count. It could take 10 days. 203 can still pass.

3 props are still too close to call and that includes 203.

i'm making an executive decision of four peaks at 9:30pm, after becca gets done with the improv. if mike, or anyone else who's in town, wants to meet earlier, lemme know. y'all should have my number by now. my only plan saturday is to go to an mp3 swap in the afternoon.

four peaks (http://www.fourpeaks.com/) (their website has gone weird)
1340 E. 8th Street, #104 Tempe, AZ 85281 (http://maps.google.com/maps?client=safari&q=1340+E.+8th+Street,+%23104+Tempe,+AZ+85281&oe=UTF-8&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=1340+E+8th+St,+Tempe,+Maricopa,+Arizona+8528 1&gl=us&ei=2DOPTLqsCY24sAPAnO2xDg&ved=0CBMQ8gEwAA&t=h&z=16)

reaction points.

1. The article is wrong in one respect, I have curbside recycling.

2. I kind of like being able to choose my trash hauler. I got ticked at Waste Management Inc for shitty service, fired them and hired a small local company and have been happier with the service.

3. But, if the Town Council thinks going with one contract works better, that's ok.

4. The Tea Partiers are just a bunch of loudmouth rabid dogs. No one I know, Republican or Democrat, takes them seriously. Well, I mean, no one takes their ideology seriously. Political clout, yeah, something to deal with.

5. FH is a town of only about 20,000 and yet has two different, rival Tea Party factions who are constantly at war with each other. It's amusing.

6. FH is so beautiful I have no regrets living here.

At least cutting Medicaid makes sense in their weird little ideology. Opposing the cost-cutting move of deciding on a single trash collector for a town is just whimsically dumb.

Has anyone ever been to a bar in Scottsdale called Pranksters Gar & Brill? Apparently there is one in Tempe as well. Any good? The website looks pretty cool, they have volleyball courts and everything. But I have never heard of it, and I thought I had been to pretty much every bar in the valley.

You had me at really cheap drinks... If anyone is free this Saturday night I am going to be at the one in Scottsdale (Hayden & Thomas) to see a local band named The Wankers. I haven't heard them before but the lead singer is also the lead singer to the local cover band I use to follow around called nineball. He said this is a heavier version of that band and they will be covering some Tool songs. Whoot.
