armageddon 2

after watching transformers i was compelled to spend my saturday night watching michael bay's greatest work, armageddon.

the movie ends with them saving the world, the survivors safely return to their loved ones. but what happens next?

i'm normally not one to encourage sequels. normally a sequel is not the next chapter, but the same chapter with a different twist. however i would watch armageddon 2 if it were done right.

the survivors of the mission come home to their loved ones and everything is bliss, for a day or so. but what happens after you save all mankind?? -you're the biggest celebrity in the world.

move over brad pitt, david beckham, madonna, and anyone else who is globally known. harry stamper(bruce willis) is now the guy who sacrificed his life to save every other living being on the planet.

for those that aren't dead, what lives do they live? does the government just buy them whatever they want? do leaders of other countries come visit them and pay their respects? do they hang out with each other afterwards?

tabloids and paparazzi will swarm to each individual who helped
save earth. fame and fortune is inevitable. and i'm sure neither of them will have to pay taxes, ever.

Another night at the speakeasy.

bored or suffering? threw up a blog entry asking a few "deep questions". one of the questions stuck in my head, and i've been pondering it since. i've been walking around trying to pinpoint people.

the question that stuck: In life, one must choose between boredom and suffering." Do you agree with this?

i've been walking around all day asking myself about every person i see. bored or suffering. it reminds me of a scene in donny darko where the teacher is explaining that everything can be categorized into love and hate.

bored or suffering

i know where i fit in.

hxaro exchange

i majored in engineering in college. which means every non-engineering class was look at as a joy instead of a chore.

it's physically impossible to "wing-it" when you're studying heat transfer or fluid dynamics. but you can cram for 2 hours and get an A- on your anthro midterm.

thing is, i paid attention in my anthropology class. anthropology. the study of... something people oriented, taught me something. (most of the time i went to the on campus pub before this class)

we were studying the dobe ju hoansi (african tribal people who talk with clicking and popping noises in their speech) and learned about hxaro exchange.

hxaro exchange was a great idea, it's something that i've personally always practiced. it has two aspects to it.

1.) trade - you trade something now, and maybe not get something back till next month/year. the idea is that we are buddies and i'll spot you now and you pay me back later. the difference between this and trading is that it's not equal trades. i could give you $20.00, and later you could give me your old collection of bottlecaps.

2.) relationship - the idea isn't personal gain with respect to material things, it's a show of friendship and loyalty. if you're in the middle of an exchange then you know that your friend will someday come back and give you something.

the best thing about that class was: watching the movie "the gods must be crazy" was extra credit!

work self / street self

during my numerous years of work experience, i've observed many coworkers. i've seen some coworkers climb the corporate ladder in record time, and others that sit at the same position year after year after year. after year.

i didn't really know what the difference between these two types of people was (besides the aforementioned) until i blurted out a short phrase. the line to my friend was in casual conversation regarding his power hungry and very annoying boss.

"winners at work are losers in the real world"

the more i thought about this, the more my generalization held true. the people who were important at work seemed to be awkward and unpopular outside of work. and those who "kept it real" and insisted on wearing their shirt un-tucked with tattoos on their neck never made it past the mail room. however they were the ones who had a life outside of work, the "cool" ones.

you can't categorize everyone into those simple categories, there is a third category, rarely seen in the wild. this category is the both category.

the only way you can catch one of these is by seeing them in a work environment and then a play environment. the two faced people always come out on top in the real world. they have their work face, and their play face. better yet the know how and when to use each.

many of my most successful friends have this mastered this technique. so i think.

somehow, to be successful in a professional environment one must convey that their outside life is simply a means to support their work life. if you tell everyone at work that you went to a raging party over the weekend, you are now somewhat of a liability. you're the loser at work and a winner at life.

but if your weekend was a quiet chance for you to get some good rest in order to be fresh and energetic at work, you may be up for a good review! way to go work winner!

those who have everyone fooled are the ones winning the war. they're having their cake and eating it too. if their play friends knew how geeky and dorky they were at work they'd be excommunicated. and if the workplace found out how wild and crazy these stable and conservative-appearing employees were, they'd be demoted to entry level analyst!

so what's the overall theme here? be deceitful and two faced if you really want to enjoy your success!
