Jeff Hostetler and The Mountaineer on the Mon River ~1983?

“If you are 35 or younger - and quite often, older - the advice of the old economy does not apply to you. You live in the post-employment economy, where corporations have decided not to pay people. Profits are still high. The money is still there. But not for you. You will work without a raise, benefits, or job security. Survival is now a laudable aspiration.”

Quoted from Sarah Kendzior’s “Surviving the Post-Employment Economy

“In the United States, nine percent of computer science majors are unemployed, and 14.7 percent of those who hold degrees in information systems have no job. Graduates with degrees in STEM - science, technology, engineering and medicine - are facing record joblessness, with unemployment at more than twice pre-recession levels. The job market for law degree holders continues to erode, with only 55 percent of 2011 law graduates in full-time jobs. Even in the military, that behemoth of the national budget, positions are being eliminated or becoming contingent due to the sequester.

It is not skills or majors that are being devalued. It is people.”

Her work is frank, speaking of a reality I hope that will never be mine. At the same time, it gives me a strange comfort to know that I am not alone.

(via sextus—empiricus)

I will always reblog this quote.  Hits way too close to home for me.

The most salient part of this, to me, is the underscoring of the fact that there is no “right” college major where you’re guaranteed a job forever. Conservatives love to pretend college graduates working minimum-wage or freelance jobs just didn’t “pick the right major” - those foolish fools studied the arts or literature or something else frivolous, so they deserve crushing debt and no job security! No. There is no magical college major that will let you sidestep the jobless recovery.

This really scares the shit out of me because I’ve changed my major from education/science to education/social studies and on top of that I’ve made awful grades and been in school forever. The future is a scary-as-hell thing.

"Every man’s heart one day beats its final beat. His lungs breathe their final breath. And if what that man did in his life makes the blood pulse through the body of others and makes them bleed deeper in others something larger than life, then his essence, and his spirit will be immortalized by the story tellers, by the loyalty, by the memory of those who honor him and make the running the man did live forever. "

He just cut that promo on RAW last night. This has been an insane few days of pro wrestling. 

RIP Warrior

This was so hilarious. Everything about it, down to the cinematography, looks like it’s straight out of a WCW pay-per-view from 1995. The PPV as a whole was incredible though.

This card was INSANE

I’d love to se PAPERRAD live, or go to one of their installations or something. This stuff never gets old to me.

Today’s top book news item:
Alison Bechdel, author of the graphic memoir Fun Home, has responded to this week’s vote by South Carolina’s House of Representatives to cut a combined total of $70,000 in funding to the College of Charleston and the University of South Carolina Upstate because two books with gay and lesbian themes appeared on freshman student reading lists.
Bechdel, whose book was assigned at the College of Charleston, said in a statement released to PW, “It’s sad and absurd that the College of Charleston is facing a funding cut for teaching my book — a book which is after all about the toll that this sort of small-mindedness takes on people’s lives.” 
State Rep.Garry Smith condemned Fun Home, saying it “graphically shows lesbian acts” and “promot[es] the gay and lesbian lifestyle.” 
Bechdel is well known for her comic strip Dykes to Watch Out For, where she first floated the idea that became known as "the Bechdel Test" — a standard for sexism in movies based on whether a film has two female characters who talk to each other about something other than men.

COOL PERSON RIGHT HERE

Now I love rob Delaney even more. Mwah!


two rad ppl
