Cancel your phonebooks – save some greenery

Great site for Aussie’s to opt out of paper deliver of their phone books.

Takes about 90 seconds, 4 clicks and you’re done. Imagine if everyone who looks up numbers online or on their mobile, clicked through and ditched the paper.

So much wastage, unmeasurable damage to the environment. Come on people – 90 fucking seconds and your kids might be able to breathe clean air for another generation!!

So this is what started it. A little toke – and 6 weeks worth of frustration vented into 5 minutes of bad quality video.

And i know that probably, no one will ever see this…..and even less than nobody will read my thoughts for 2013 – but in the end, it feels right – and if it never goes anywhere then fuck it – still cathartic right?

And who knows – perhaps my cynical, sarcastic self will be jaw droppingly surprised when the masses are not as apathetic as one thinks.

HA – FFC

Can’t Sleep

Ahhhhhh…..fuckery! 2:30am, can’t sleep, all sorts of restless and a million and one things running through my head. What is it with that early morning brain hive thing? Anyone else get that too? Where you’re mind just runs mental lists of the six thousand things there are to do, or it skips from topic to topic….or sometimes it just gets stuck on one moment, one scenario, one memory –  and you just can’t stop thinking about it. Sometimes i don’t realise how deep into the thought i am until i feel tears rolling down my face, or i catch myself exhaling a massive breath.

Hmmmm…..when we’re young, all we want to do is grow up. And now, somedays i would give anything to be 10 again. No worries, no responsibilities – no bills, no deadlines, no politics and no awareness of how fucked up the world is right now. Sure there’s a downside – no bourbon for one…lol, no sex, no moments of passion and pleasure. Yeah – fairly substantial downsides i guess.

Spose i should get some sleep. The office awaits bright and early – and the treadmill will be calling me (fucking torture device) in 4 hours. Maybe rub one out quickly to help me drift off : )

Night everyone, and no one. May your dreams be laced with shades of an alternate reality.

Bruce Springsteen on the stereo – Human Touch – fuck i love that song!.

So here goes….my random bullshit thoughts on the screen for everyone, or no one to read. I guess the point of starting this was the frustration around the general apathy of people.

Before Christmas my company did a little social media experiment. We offered up 3, $300 gift cards to any shop of people’s choosing. As well as that, we donated $100 to the Starlight Foundation in the winners names. All people had to do was like us, and if they wanted, share the link tot he competition. That’s it. Not gathering your personal information, not asking anything more from you than the click of a button.

We threw it out there on facebook. Now between the office crew – we’re probably got 1500 friends or so. Over the 3 weeks of the competition, you know how many people shared out link? 60. That’s right. Fucking 60.

I don’t know what to do. You try and go about things the right way – ethically sound business, trying to give people access to information regarding their careers, their future – but nope – no one gives a shit.

Now 5 million people will share a picture of a fucking cat taking a shit – or Kim Kartrashian shaking her ass yet again, but to support an Australian business, to give to one of the best charities in the country – people couldn’t be arsed!

SoTheRantBegins. I don’t know how often i’ll get onto it – but i’m hoping that by some fucking miracle – the word gets around, people take a look – and we get the power of the people to help us compete in a market dominated by media giants and soulless corporate conglomerates.
