Exploitation of the Underground
February 09, 2016, 06:49:pm
Written by our good friend jess-o-lantern , here's an interesting article about her interview at an 'alternative culture' company which turns out to just be a corporate exploitation.

Exploitation of the underground and you

Well, I'll be damned. Awesome shot, Jess-O-Lantern. Truly awesome. I'm obligated to ask - and you don't have to answer, or can do so in a private fashion - whether or not this is simply fiction, or the real thing?

Good on Jess for refusing, even if it was a no-brainer. There are some companies like this in the UK I've had the misfortune of dealing with in the past. It would be interesting to know which company it was, but I get why they weren't mentioned.

>Puke Green: So, did you know that over 56% of Americans are now part of the Alternative Culture? Not even close. It is cluttered with beings that do not even understand the words to music etc. How it represents anarchy - certain mindsets and teachings of thinking individually within open-mindedness. Now it is about being into the latest depressed band or sing about who is more self-harming than the other etc. Who can scream the loudest instead of political correctness. Now it is about the girls instead of what is put into the music or said philosophies. Nothing about consisted competitiveness in who has the most tattoos etc. Instead of it having a philosophy behind the structure of metaphor etc. Do not mistaken me for a Goth etc. But I am into the music. But I am still a Geek, but like the music. Sorry if that will change course of thought. >Puke Green: Well 56% of Americans have a tattoo. No, "alternative" is an entity of full view and spectrum of thought into choices of thinking outside boundaries etc. So now every tattoo with meaningless thoughts or choices of no metaphor and invested non-creativeness through just 'looking' like the crowd? Is alternative stare >Puke Green: Not according to our statistics. Also, we base it on how many people have unnatural hair color, and unnatural piercings. Great. Market terms. The terms of marketing is now what they use. As if copyrighting a human being for It's nature is up for auction. In a way of humans and their statuses add value to their being. And who cares for the businesses that think about customers and their well beings. Like In Time. As if capitalism comes in and says, "We are mandating your being as a competitor in our race to take the Nation, and our hierarchy owns any belongings to your body, and is now a currency for your value." >Me: What are “natural” piercings?! Regardless, those are also inconsistent with alternative culture. I’ve never dyed my hair, I don’t have any piercings, or tattoos. That goes completely against your marketing statistic. Just what I am wondering. No one cares about thought into things and metaphor for life means anymore. >Me: Yes, very. For most of my life. The punk and hardcore music scene, alternative fashion, underground performance art, the whole lot. (Pause….) Are YOU familiar with Alternative culture? That is what I say: Do what interests you and, not what is said your supposed to do - unlock your potentials and become, your individual-self. >Puke Green: Well……..no. But I don’t have to be. I hire people who are, so I don’t have to be. Just another mediocre mechanical work slave saying, "I'm better than you. I made my rank in the numerical system of the powerful and pathetic of life. And my agreement got me there. Individuality is not on my list." So now, just being into something is just buying and not investing time into your work, or not going into reading what you are in or making something out of yourself as a human being, and being yourself and being...you. Now an object with a sign on yourself: owned. >Me: Wait, so you’re saying you don’t have to have an understanding of your target audience, or any invested interest in the culture your representing? My thought exactly. >Puke Green: Well….not really no. Because like I said, I hire people who care about this stuff. I don’t have to. Great, anyone working for that company is a fucking sell-out or ignorant. :-p >Me: But if you’re career is centered around something you don’t have any slight interest in, how do you find joy in it Forget it, I've written this far, I am too lazy to finish this bit. I've used all my read words I could.

Social aniexty
February 09, 2016, 01:52:pm
So I have social aniexty, I've got irrational social fears that I've spent the last ten years or so trying to improve. As out going as I am, I'm terribling shy and tend to be a loner. Which has it's up's and down's. Personally more down's though I make the best of it in each experience. In the work place I'm finding slowly being easier to start a conversation with a stranger. Even if it's just talking about movies or music, giving that's pretty much what I do all day anymore since I've been working at FYE. Still outside the work place I still catch myself straying away from human interaction. There's so few good places to meet new people, in the town I live in there's nothing but bars everywhere you look. Within one block is four bars for no reason!! Parks have too many underage wannabe thugs. Which is funny cause you live in the middle of the woods, not the big city. And malls or shopping plazas are lame. Only me and my none date able friends gang out in the graveyards for a sense of humanity. So I feel like I'm always just going to be this socially akward creeper in the corner. Can't beat it, embrace it right?

I only word for word literal translations that keep the meaning in context of how the first century Christians and Jews spoke koine Greek. Classic common Greek is something I use all the time to get to the bottom of a interpretation. And I am mindful of the text is Coptic based or not.

February 03, 2016, 06:09:pm
After going through everyone’s VF friendship stories, I want to say that I was emotionally touched by you guys,
reading about the hardships you’ve gone through, your failed events, traveling great distances to meet, going through family issues, health issues, etc.
Yet through it all, sometimes the hard times bring you closer together and create long-lasting friendships and relationships.
It’s beautiful when you find someone you can connect with and I’m humbled and happy to be a part of bringing people together.
I wasn't that sure about this contest idea at first but I gotta say it's been one of my favorite ones in a while.
Now I know we were only supposed to pick a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winner but we just couldn't narrow it down and you guys did such an awesome job and I'm feeling generous today so we've got a bunch of winners!

3rd Place Winners:

I want to open the pertinent subforums public once I feel there is sufficient material to go around. I understand that for some users clicking a single button is a complicated ordeal that requires will power they might not have. The point of the cult is to allow users to ask questions and interact should they need it.
