I am sure 9 out of 10 people do not enjoy their job at all, and they only work for the crappy pay check they get at the end of the week. This is all fine and dandy, the fact of the matter is all of us don’t have the luxury to land a fun, society enhancing, high paying job. A lot of people like to brag to their friends that they do so much at work and it’s so hard and important, but everyone knows that’s bull, and we don’t really give a shit about some boring white collar profession anyway. So when you are sitting at your desk looking at NSFW porn and shooting crumpled up paper into the garbage can, just know there are people out there with a lot more important jobs than you, just saying, “Are you reaching your potential?”
Here is “Day Jobs” by Fro Reza. Available as a 11 x 17 limited edition print here. Reza imagined and created a bunch of movie and T.V. characters business cards, and they are saweeeeet. Can you put each business card with it’s movie or show? If not we supplied you with a cheat sheet at the end of the post. And as always click on image to get the bigger version.
ABC 7 News in Chicago reported a serious accident during the filming of Transformers 3 in NorthWest IN. Extra Gabrielle Cedillo apparently suffered a serious head injury during shooting of a car chase stunt scene. ”The vehicle was being towed by another vehicle,” said fellow extra Blaine Baker. “The cable between the two vehicles broke. It whipped around and sliced through the woman’s car and sliced through her skull, apparently.” Filming in Chicago has since been canceled and there is no official word from the movies reps. Not sure if this will ultimately effect the scheduled release date of the movie for July 2011.

Some people take sport to a higher level and make it art. Justin Darlington and Guy Dupuy try to do this during a dunking contest and in my eyes they succeed with honors. This is one of the best head to head dunk contests I’ve ever seen, of course Jordan vs Wilkins taking the cake but come on throw these kids a bone. What makes this contest unique is the creativity of the dunks pulled off, some of which I’ve never seen before. I especially enjoy the rushing of the court by the crowd after every dunk, it adds a great touch.
If you’re going to be a bum and ask for money from people to do nothing whatsoever in exchange, at least have a funny sign to make me chuckle. That is my philosophy anyway and here is a collection of some good signs from homeless people around the map. All of these would probably get at least a quarter out of me, so bums if you are reading this on your new mac laptop, while sitting in Starbucks sipping your soy chai, take notes and get creative.
The latest art installation from Banksy popped up at Brighton Pier in England. The re-purposed child’s ride features a dolphin tangled up in fishing nets attempting to escape a leaking BP oil drum, can you say genius. It’s funny how when something isn’t hot news anymore the American media tends to completely shut it out of the headlines. Since they stopped the oil I haven’t heard one word on how the clean up was going and or the effects it is having. It’s old news so out of sight out of mind, so much so your kids are bound to ride it with a big smile on their face.
What I would ever need to carry 12 beers strapped to my chest like Rambo is beyond me, but I don’t think that far ahead, I want this thing. There are 12 insulated holsters and each one holds a single 12-ounce can. I guess next time you’re tailgating, camping or attending a BYOB party you can avoid those long, thirsty walks back to the cooler or the fridge by keeping a plethora of your favorite canned beers right on your chest. Warning: Wearing this holster may result in your friends using you as a human pack mule that exclusively carries beer. You can buy it here for $29.95
* Capacity: (12) 12 oz cans
* Adjustable waist belt fits waist (or belly) 28” to 42”
Anyone contemplating which profession to enter or perhaps considering a career change should take note. A study was recently published revealing which professions are having the most sex. Considering the amount of 20-somethings dressed up for Halloween every year as sexy nurses, teachers, and librarians, learning that these three jobs were among the professions getting laid the least was surprising at first. Sadly, research shows that reality does not live up to our costumed fantasies. Not so shockingly, truck drivers were also reportedly among the group not getting much action. Here are the top 5 that are getting lucky the most:
#5 Call Center Operator
Seemingly obscure, this isn’t one that pops into mind as being particularly sexy. The stereotype is more along the lines of isolated techno geeks who spend their day staring at the computer through thick-rimmed glasses. Maybe their customer service training has actually paid off by translating to better performance in bed – they answer all your questions, solve all your problems, and most importantly don’t give up until the customer is thoroughly satisfied. Though their job may be dull, it seems their sex lives are far from it.
