Rear View Mirror – My Week In Review

Stig antoi minulle tämän 50 markka, kun hän oli vierailulla 2000. Olen tehnyt sitä minun lompakko lähtien. #Finland #family

This week, I went to a gallery opening of the art by Ricardo Romero Cortez Duque and it was so well received that he sold one piece right on the spot and probably has another one sold to the same person. Click on his name to visit his website.  Here is the photo of the one that sold, it is called Escape.

This week on Waldina (the website where I chronicle what inspires me), I celebrated the birthdays of Howard Shultz, Edgar Degas, Lupe Velez, Charles James, Molly Brown, Hunter S. Thompson, Phyllis Diller, Orville Redenbacher, Bernice Abbot and Barbara Stanwyck.

This week on Facebook, I started a group called Blog Post Feed. It was in response to all the blog groups that have nearly a dozen rules about posting. My group has no rules. I post a photo, you post a link to your blog post in the comments, you’re done. If you would like to see what others are posting, click through the other comments, if not, don’t. There are a lot of blog groups that require the posters to click on other posts, mostly to inflate website hits. It should be about community and less about statistics.

This Week on Wasp & Pear on Tumblr (the place where I share interesting links, photos, music, etc), I shared photos of Keith Haring’s art, minimalist posters celebrating women pioneers of science, photos of classic Hollywood, vintage Seattle and New York and a lot more.

It was on this day in 1875 that the largest recorded swarm of locusts in American history descended upon the Great Plains. It was a swarm about 1,800 miles long, 110 miles wide, from Canada down to Texas. North America was home to the most numerous species of locust on earth, the Rocky Mountain locust. At the height of their population, their total mass was equivalent to the 60 million bison that had inhabited the West. The Rocky Mountain locust is believed to have been the most common macroscopic creature of any kind ever to inhabit the planet.

Swarms would occur once every seven to 12 years, emerging from river valleys in the Rockies, sweeping east across the country. The size of the swarms tended to grow when there was less rain — and the West had been going through a drought since 1873. Farmers just east of the Rockies began to see a cloud approaching from the west. It was glinting around the edges where the locust wings caught the light of the sun.

People said the locusts descended like a driving snow in winter. They covered everything in their path. They sounded like thunder or a train and blanketed the ground, nearly a foot deep. Trees bent over with the weight of them. They ate nearly every living piece of vegetation in their path. They ate harnesses off horses and the bark of trees, curtains, clothing that was hung out on laundry lines. They chewed on the handles of farm tools and fence posts and railings. Some farmers tried to scare away the locusts by running into the swarm, and they had their clothes eaten right off their bodies.

Similar swarms occurred in the following years. The farmers became desperate. But by the mid-1880s, the rains had returned, and the swarms died down. Within a few decades, the Rocky Mountain locusts were believed to be extinct. The last two live specimens were collected in 1902, and they’re now stored at the Smithsonian.

Rear View Mirror – Week In Review

Rear View Mirror – Week In Review

It is no secret that I am obsessed with polaroids.  I have four Polaroid Land Camera SX-70s in a drawer in my bedside table, but no film.  I hear there is a place in town, but still…

I have collected all my photos with ‘polaroid’ in the file name into one giant collection, here is what I have:

I may make the Warhol mosaic my new header for various social media things…

The Wiki:

Land cameras are instant cameras with self-developing film named after their inventor,Edwin Land, manufactured by Polaroid between the years of 1947 and 1983. Though Polaroid continued producing instant cameras after 1983, the name ‘Land’ was dropped from the camera name since Edwin Land retired in 1982. The first commercially available model was the Polaroid Land Camera Model 95, which produced prints in about 1 minute, and was first sold to the public in November, 1948.

The SX-70 is a folding single lens reflex Land camera which was produced by thePolaroid Corporation from 1972-1981.

The SX-70 included many sophisticated design elements. A collapsible SLR required a complex light path for the viewfinder, with three mirrors (including one Fresnel reflector) of unusual, aspheric shapes set at odd angles to create an erect image on the film and an erect aerial image for the viewfinder.[3] Many mechanical parts were precision plastic moldings. The body was glass-filled polysulfone, a very rigid plastic which could be plated with genuine copper-nickel-chromium. Models 2 & 3 used the less expensive and more-easily cracked ABS in either Ebony or Ivory color. The film pack contained a flat, 6-volt “PolaPulse” battery to power the camera electronics, drive motor and flash. The original flash system, a disposable “Flash Bar” of 10 bulbs from General Electric, used logic circuits to detect and fire the next unused flash.

This week, on Waldina, I celebrated the birthdays of Chuck Close, Eva Marie Saint, Twyla Tharp, Peg Entwistle, Olivia de Havilland and America of course. It was a good weekend for birthdays. I have attempted to organize the birthdays in my calendar to maximize the actual date. For instance, tomorrow will is a popular day and I am also booked all week with other birthdays, so there will be four posts tomorrow.

I fear that anyone that started following me on Twitter today because of my World Cup tweets will quickly become very uninterested in the rest of my tweets. It is all the #MEXvsNED and #VivaMexico hashtags, when it is really more that right now, I really do not like the Dutch. Let’s break it down, since I do not claim to know much about Futball, I will use what I know. Who has the better beaches: Mexico or The Netherlands? Who has the better food: Mexico or The Netherlands? So, I rest my case. Oh, one more comparison: Who is NOT a passive-aggressive, lying, childish, unprofessional former employer of mine? Yes, the answer in every case in MEXICO.

It is true, I may be putting my own emotions into the mix, but even if this was six months ago, before I ever even heard of Suitsupply, I would still want Mexico to win. I am just glad to be rid of those horrible Dutch people. I dare say they are worse than Germans.

Friday was my last day at Suitsupply, I start work (training, I suspect) at Tiffany & Co. on Monday. My life will be back in balance. I will have time to do more than next week’s laundry, I will go to the gym, I will have a work/life balance. And (I hope), I will have and employer that knows what it is doing. The great things about working at Suitsupply were the people I worked with in Seattle and the customers that I helped and formed relationships with. I sold a suit that was worn during a performance at the Grammys. That’s a major highlight. The rest, the negativity, the hurt feelings, all that will fade. I am just lucky to have the new opportunity in front of me.

This week on Waldina, I added Caberet, It Should Happen To You and Harold and Maude to the Required Viewing film series; celebrated the birthdays of Pearl S. Buck and George Orwell; and celebrated my last day at Suitsupply.

Rear View Mirror – My Week In Review

This week I quit my job. Well, I put in my notice. It felt great. The primary reason is because my work/life balance has been off and I haven’t been able to do anything that I want to do outside of work. I have been so focused on the needs of the store, I have put everything I like to do aside. I could feel myself getting angrier and angrier, grown more resentful of the company. I could feel myself turning into all those unhappy managers we have all experienced. By the time I finally put in my notice, the numerous secondary reasons of why I was looking for another job were just that: secondary. The main reason, my out of balance life, would not change even if they started giving me a manager’s wage, started communicating respectfully, started being supportive, and started providing mentorship and creating a community amongst managers. The bottom line was that the job did not allow for a work/life balance and no amount of money would be able to change that fact.

If anything, it was a lesson to me about my price. I guess this is not something that anyone really learns until they are confronted with it. How much money would someone have to pay me to be unhappy? My answer is I don’t have a price. If I am coming off as ethically superior, I don’t mean to. I am also quitting to take a job at Tiffany & Co. where I have the potential of making a lot more money. But the balance of my life will be restored. I will be going to the gym on a regular basis, working only 8 hour shifts, and getting two full days off a week. My resorted balance will improve my work performance and lead to my and the store’s success. I guess it is the difference of what a 170+ year old company knows and what a 3 year old company has yet to learn.

This week on Waldina, I celebrated the birthdays of the insightfully talented film director Billy Wilder, the beautiful and stylish Wallis Simpson, the hauntingly skilled actress/activist/model Isabella Rossellini, the powerfully moving composer Stravinsky, the tragic and mysterious Anastasia Romanova, and added the Hitchcock classic The Birds to the Required Viewing film series.

Rear View Mirror – My Week In Review

Dude, I swear, I don't know those people.
“Dude, I swear, I never said that and I don’t know those people.” – Jesus

 

Some things I have been thinking about this week:

1. Your Facebook “friends” are not really your friends. Facebook is not a real thing. You may know some of them in real life and are actually friends with them, but just because you agreed to connect with them on the internet does not mean you owe anybody anything.

2. Why aren’t parents vaccinating their kids? Are these the same crazy religious weirdoes that also don’t give their kids medicine because it’s “God’s will”?  Those parents end up going to jail for child abuse when their kids die.

3. How many people have to die before people stop responding to mass shootings with candle light vigils and posters and ribbons? None of those things are going to stop a bullet. How many more people have to die before people get angry and start holding elected officials accountable? Until we start electing people that will have the courage to address safer gun regulations and mental illness, innocent people will be murdered. Those innocent people may be your friends, family or you. How fucking stupid does lighting a candle seem now?

 

 

This week on Waldina, I celebrated the birthdays of Suzi Quatro, colleen Dewhurst, Rosalind Russell, Carmen Dell’Orefice, Hedda Hopper, and the 125th anniversary of the Great Seattle Fire.

Rear View Mirror – My Week In Review

Today is the birthdays of Keith Haring and Audrey Hepburn. I find them both exceptionally inspirational and know that I take bits and pieces of their lives as lessons on how to make myself better.

R worked late last night, so I drove to Issaquah and went to the gym, why Issaquah?  The gym I go to normally closes at 7:00pm on Saturdays and the Issaquah one is open until 10:00pm.  That was my Saturday night.  I do have to say that I did love driving around in the rain and listening to Sonic Reducer on KEXP.

Also, apparently when I am bored, I shop for tattoo artist/parlors for these new tattoos that I have in my head.  I figure I am not getting any younger and why not?  The next one is going to be words across my chest in some sort of fancy script.  It seems unexpected and out of character and that is what I am liking the most about it.  Mix it up.

This week on Waldina, I celebrated the birthdays of the industrious Dick Proeneke, the poetic Harper Lee, and the beautiful Bianca Jagger, I posted the Holstee Manifesto, I added one of Audrey Hepburn’s quotes to the Words To Live By series, I suggested A Place In The Sun to the Required Viewing film list, and I made my annual plea to please wear sunblock. A nice varied list.

Rear View Mirror – My Week In Review

Earlier this week, I biked the lower half of the Lake Washington Loop.  Today, I am going to bike the upper half.  The upper half is a lot prettier (sorry Renton) and has a lot of it’s own path.  The whole loop is about 60 miles.  I am not sure how far the top half is.

When there are bad accidents that people survive, there are always comments about how things are “miracles” and how “God’s not done with you yet” and so forth. So I guess God was done with all the other people that died and for whatever reason, they don’t get any miracles? Whenever I see someone on the news obviously trying to wrap their heads around what they have been through and dealing with survivors guilt and they claim that their guardian angel saved them, I think of this quote:

So this is how it is: the innocent suffer, the guilty go free, and truth and fiction are pretty much interchangeable. There is neither a Santa Claus nor an Easter Bunny, and there are no angels watching over us. This just happen for no reason. And nothing makes any sense..

There are people that can handle the randomness of how the world works and people who need to have everything explained to them and are willing to believe fairy tales and fables if that’s what it takes. Pray all you want to whoever you want, but in the end, we all turn to dust and are forgotten.

Texas must be happy that Arizona and Florida are now considered the bat-shit crazy racist states and it can fly under the radar. But Arizona and Florida better watch out for Kansas and Michigan…

This week on Waldina, I celebrated the birthdays of Beverly Cleary, Mary Pickford, James Garner and Jean-Paul Belmondo, confessed my obsession for the Brazilian capitol of Brasilia, remembered the publication of The Great Gatsby, published the list of everything I am currently on my radar.

It’s Sunday.  I need to workout.  I need to workout.  I cannot even remember the last time I was at the gym.  I can stack excuses on excuses as to how it has been so long, but the bottom line is I need to workout.  It’s noon, I am still in bed, watching YouTube videos and reruns of McHale’s Navy and Mr. Ed on TV.  It is nice enough outside that I could just go for a nice long walk and start the formal gym visitations on Monday.  I should do that.  But will I?  I need to.  I’ll shower and start.
