to all the kids applying for internships - don't be retard

i've been appalled by the applicants for an internship at my company. i seriously don't know what's wrong with kids these days, but here are a few pointers.

-if you're applying for an INTERNSHIP, your resume should only be 1 page
-there should be zero spelling mistakes on your resume
-if you're a designer, sending a word doc resume isn't acceptable. are you a designer or an accountant?
-if english isn't your first language, you should really have someone look over your docs
-if someone asks you for a resume, cover letter and work samples, send what they're asking for
-your files shouldn't be 19mgs that take my computer 5 minutes to load
-if my name is in the job ad, i expect your cover letter to be addressed to me and especially not to "mr. tandry"

i am grateful for my portfolio class now even though the teacher was an ass.

the 2 most important things i've learned in the past month

1. falafel, hummus and babaganoush aren't greek or turkish

2. it is indeed possible to fall asleep standing up

I went to Bowery ballroom last night for the first time in forever. In fact, it's been so long since I hung out in that neighborhood I had to look up directions on how to walk there. It's still one of my favorite venues, even though beer prices have ballooned to $7. It opened when I was 16, and I used to get to shows way early in the day and camp out on the sidewalk just so I could get front row. I actually sat on the sidewalk. Way before whole foods was even a thought in ny, burger king was the only food option a few blocks away. I miss that new York a lot.

No real point to this, but I was sitting by the door last night and smirking at jackasses who walked in and were like, this is my first time here! I kind of miss hanging out in that hood, although I know the reality of it is too different from my recollection of it, as evidenced the few times I do venture into the city. It was so much more fun just 3-4 years ago.

cut copy :(

i'm utterly disappointed by their 3rd record. some of the songs have grown on me a bit, but it's altogether lackluster and the last 2 tracks are unforgivably awful.

some other bands i love who've disappointed me in the last year:
broken social scene
blonde redhead

bring on the good music!

too much control, when is it not enough?

so far at my job, the following has happened:
i'm not allowed to eat chili because my coworker, who's bff with the owner, think it smells too strong
i'm not allowed to use hand cream (for the same reason)
i'm not allowed to have my phone ringer on because it's too loud
i was told to change my picture on a social media site because it wasn't professional enough

should i be weirded out?
