Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Another Job Thread? I could do that at home with MS Word!

    I'm having another career crisis. Last time this happened we moved to Atlanta. Now I'm thinking Korea. That still beats doing something totally nuts like going back to school.


    Mostly I just think I want to underachieve. I don't know if I'm too old or too young for this.

    Nope, I was on the road for an hour & a half afterwards though.

    And when I got home I watched The Soup while eating some pizza.





    I AM IN SHOCK!!!

    heres how i see it being a total win situation for you
    1. stay with your wife while she dog sits. this wins husband points since she knows its out of your comfort zone
    2. have sex all over her friends house so that the next time you see her friend look at you condescendingly, you can wink back knowing you did the freaky deaky where she eats her cheerios.

    Yeah, they operate all over the world. Alberta in the winter is pretty much a frozen wasteland so I'd have to deal with that but I think I would actually rather the cold than extreme heat.

    Hmmmm... the nuclear operator sent me an email asking me to complete a security clearance. I'm thinking this is a good sign, because if they weren't interested in me they wouldn't care about making me fill out this shit, right?

    Welllllllll you remember how I said my hiring process had been put on hold until the drug stuff cleared? And that once it did, things would pick up right where they left off?

    Wellllllllllllllllllllllll now I've got a letter from the feds saying my job offer has been rescinded. Entirely. And that I'll need to go back to square one with the application process (though there are now no posted vacancies for the position I was in the running for)

    So I need to wait and hear back from my contact on Monday before I know for sure just what the fuck is going on, but it looks like it's fucking over now

    I'm pretty sure any highschool kid could edit for them and have it up by Sunday afternoon. For like $50. And will upgrade their SD video to HD.

    So I sat down with the head of my improv' comedy troupe, the one who is the head of it down in New Mexico (and thus is the manager of the sub-groups in Washington, Florida, New York and England), to discuss me moving down to join his group.

    Everything seems pretty good and beyond it providing a new opportunity it'd offer me a chance to stop working with that demon of a boss.

    So I still have to discuss it with my parents but I'm fairly cemented in moving down to Clovis, New Mexico on March 28th to pursue professional improv' comedy.

    Look, if I can upload a video to youtube in like, 10 minutes, then you can edit a few hours of footage into an episode of a show within like, a day.

    So he could edit some videos for the It Gets Better Project?

    Video editing is one of those things people really don't understand. Our trainers did some 3 minute videos, and after viewing had some changes for the production company to make. They did not understand that you can't just cut out sections of video without going back to the source and re-encoding.

    His comment is fairly condescending towards those who have a background in editing.

    Also I feel like I have enough experience in the subject to estimate its difficulty.

    Sorry to hear that man, I remember how pissed/disappointed I was when my offer was rescinded. Hopefully it is just something they need to clear up and you can pick up where you left off.
