Hello all. It is that time of year again, and this is where ALL holiday shoppers go nuts on this year's deals. I have experience on working on Thanksgiving, and all I can say is that people really have nothing better to do with their lives. Thanksgiving should be about spending time with those closest to you, NOT go shopping!
Another problem comes form the fact that there isn't enough people to help with the flow of operations. I know this because where I work our "Management Team" pulls people from making sure the shelves are full and ready for the customers to purchase to further upsetting our customers. I say this because I've been pulled from my task to help cashier, thus further delaying operations even more.
Another problem is that our "Management Team" seems to be aware of the short staffing. Pfft, I'll believe it when I see it. From what I know, we've got more people, but I'm not holding my breath on their longevity. I highly doubt the people we hire won't last more than a week AFTER they see how terrible the operation really is.
But the biggest problem of all? The store is open 24 HOURS! I have never (and I mean) NEVER see another retail outlet open 24 hours a day! This creates a problem with the fact that there's no breathing room so that our overnight team can stock shelves with merchandise and also allowing our morning team to concentrate on their tasks for the day.
With all that said, what does this have to do with the title of this blog? The answer's simple: STOP THE F****** Thanksgiving shopping craze (save it for Friday), give your employees a chance to enjoy the holiday, put hours into effect (and NOT open 24 hours a day), and give those who work overnight a chance to stock shelves while the store's closed! This will save a lot of grief and time by doing so! You'll also have a lot of happier employees.
Hello all. I am here to give you an update regarding my first video. Shooting is done, and I'm doing the editing as we speak. Now I can't say that I'll be making anything jaw dropping (it's an introduction video after all), but I will be show casing that I can do editing. The video should be up on my website this week (I was planning for the 15th of this month, but work once again put the kabash on that plan).
Speaking of videos, they will be posted on my website and my website ONLY! When I'll be posting videos is up to me. I make the decision of what videos to make and to post. Unlike my intro video, I'll be making the other videos longer and with more effects (just remember, AVGN quality these videos will NOT be!)
While I will be doing game reviews (mostly PC games both new and old), I'll also be doing product reviews (mostly of those I own and on some occasion, art supply reviews for up and coming art students). I will also be doing software reviews as well (Photoshop not included).
With that said, I'm looking forward to see what you guys have to say about the video (constructive criticism recommended).
Hulk Hogan: The poster boy of the 80s as the WWE Champion.
The Ultimate Warrior: Upcoming superstar that carries the InterContinental Championship.
Who will emerge victorious after their bout? I'm not going to tell you! (Yeah, go ahead and Wiki it, you lazy gits!)
All that aside, everyone remembers that showdown between these two. Many call it one of the greatest matches of that time (remember, there were equals fans between the two). But was this the only match that made WrestleMania VI memorable?
Well, I hate to be bearer of honest news, but yeah, this was the only match that made WrestleMania VI. I say this because I was about 5 or so when I watched this event. I really enjoyed watching WWF back in the day (PLEASE, for the LOVE OF GOD, Vince McMahon, make pro wrestling about PRO WRESTLING). Now, at 30 years old, my opinion has changed quite drastically.
While this event wasn't a complete flop, I felt that too many unnecessary matches really killed this event. A good example would be Bolsheviks vs Hart Foundation. A match that lasted less than a minute, and no excitement. I HATE matches like that (the ONLY exception being SummerSlam 88 between Warrior and Honky Tonk Man).
Speaking of which, his concert with Greg Valentine? BORING (although the Bushwhackers destroying the set was okay). I felt that these two teams should've had an impromptu match, then it would've been better.
The rest of the even was only average, until we get to "The Ultimate Challenge". And did it live up to the tagline. While the match itself was fun to watch, only one thing could've made it better. And that would be if the match was NO HOLDS BARRED! If it was like this, then the match would've been even better to watch.
Overall, on a scale of 1 to 5, I would give this a 2 out of 5. Not a great way to kick off the 90s, but at least they tried.
I have some good news finally! Remember me teasing the videos a few months ago and the delays that were occuring? Well, you can put those teases to rest, as I have finally got the willpower and energy to get a script going.
When will the video be done? I plan on shooting this coming Thursday, with editing and organization the same day. You can expect the first video before the 15th of November.
