Fuck you, piece of shit ex-producer of my old Rocky Horror cast. You were fired because of your sneakiness and greed, and now you're trying to drag down the cast through a farce of a legal battle because you, a 50-something-year-old man with a 25-year-old INSANE girlfriend (who's TWO WEEKS older than your daughter), NEED to validate your existence by exerting power over teenagers in their underwear.

Fuck you very much, Sir Cocksucker Shit Barbra Streisand.

Is that what is going on? I know that she (said daughter) doesn't really get to go see Rocky anymore because her dad gets all bitchy... but I didn't know there was a legal suit. WTF?

Honestly, I really don't like that man anyway.

Elara, if you want the whole story, Brandon (Hobbit, not B-Hump) posted a link to it on his Facebook.

I'd heard it a few times from my friends on cast, but now they'd just rather tell the world since he's being such a prick. One of the first lessons I was taught after joining cast was to NEVER air the cast's dirty laundry (especially online), but now it's like, fuck it. The story needs to be told.

Wanna talk nuts? Last night while waiting for the band's show to start at this place in Fullerton, Becky turns to me and starts telling me how she's getting texts, right then, from Mandi (the girl who wrote that whole post) saying that Mark's making calls to her work, trying to get her fired.

Becky, who is one of three people he says he trusts completely and listens to (next to Bill and Christine, the woman who pretty much created the cast 24 years ago), has told him off about this already and he's not listening to her. So she's cutting him off.

The main concern is that he's setting up a precedent and it's SCARING the whole Rocky community, because if someone has beef with a cast, they could pull all this crap. Apparently he's been creating a two-pronged attack by going to the city halls of towns the cast keeps trying to get a theater in and saying that 1) they need a permit to operate and 2) there are RAPES regularly going on at Rocky.

The second on is outright slander, but the permit thing is what's scaring the other casts of the world. Those cost THOUSANDS of dollars and this could destroy EVERYONE if it turns out they need it.

I really wish Twentieth Century Fox would come in and intercept him because this means less money in THEIR pocket, and as we all know Hollywood cares about money, numero uno.

Honestly, what he is doing seems like harassment, stalking, and slander... can't they take legal action against him?

I think MI would rather not instigate anything themselves, but they are seeking donations when they do end up in court against him. He's the type of person to carry through his threats.

This Fuck You's over a week old, but it still irks me thinking about it for some reason.

So there's this table at this museum two Sundays ago, giving away free samples of Russian food and beverages. Mob scene, obviously. Brandon and I are waiting our turns and everyone who just got there is pretty much jumping into the fray and making mad swipes and grabs at the table, snatching things out of the women's hands who are laying down fresh samples.

This woman starts using her daughter (presumably) as a shield, urging her into the mess while sticking close behind. Sort of playing this "Let my child through so she can experience whatever you people are fighting for because children ALWAYS get priority in such things." She gets up to the table, pulls out her shirt and gathers up as many things as she can into it, and THEN LEAVES THE CHILD BEHIND IN THE MOB.

No, "Hey, let's go!" or anything. The moment I saw this I yelled in her direction about her great parenting skills and she ignored me.

I can't believe the audacity and carelessness.

Lemme tell you a story from work today.

This woman is standing by one of our two registers. This one has a sign that says "Please use other register." I tell her to go to the other register so I can ring her up.

"Oh, I saw the sign, but I wasn't sure if that register was open."

. . .

Fuck idiots.

Just tell her it was open and that we only use that sign to mess with people.

But no seriously I love people like that. Makes me feel good about myself.

Fuck the fact that this client I'm doing the 40-page newsletter for offered the first guy who tried to do complete it (and FAILED) $600 and I have yet to be offered anything despite finishing the newsletter and submitting the new edits today. As far as I can tell he's still getting credit in the newsletter for design, so he probably collected SOMETHING.

I sent an e-mail with the new PDF of the edits to the client and asked about payment, so we'll see where this goes.


Fuck that I can never seem to get my room AND closet completely clean. It's just a constant shifting of shit from one space to another.

My room is looking AWESOME, though. The closet... not so much. It's a walk-in closet you can even set one foot into.

God.. fuck this whole newsletter business I got myself into. The client keeps wanting inane changes and then realizes he wants them changed back. What the fuck does "Use the tighter font" mean?! After spending 45 minutes on the phone with him last night, I'm realizing he doesn't even know what italicized font is. Goddamn.

And further on this, fuck me for not confirming payment on this whole matter because now I've apparently done this for a job reference.

Yep, fuck you, self. You should never assume that when they offer someone $600 the offer shifts to you when you take on the job. FUCK.

Jesus fucking Christ. Not only am I not getting paid I'm getting belittled over inane shit that this four-flushing fuck is IMAGINING. I spent 45 minutes on the phone with him last night discussing FONTS that he swears I keep fucking up, and when I got them the way he specified, he writes me this condescending e-mail that starts off, "I don't understand. It's like you forgot everything we discussed last night."

Man, FUCK YOU.

Fonts... seriously?

We SERIOUSLY wasted a day going over the font in the TABLE OF CONTENTS. The template's was Bodoni MT 10pt, suddenly he wants it "more like the rest of the newsletter." I take this to mean he wants it the same font as the body type for the articles, so I change it to Adobe Garamond Pro 10pt. Nope, it doesn't look right. So I make it 12pt. Nope, it just doesn't look right. So I send him a PDF of three versions of the table of contents with the three types so he can compare. "Wait, is this how it's going to look on the page? I need to see it with the stuff all around it." OK... copy-paste the front page onto new document pages with the SAME FUCKING TABLES OF CONTENTS on four sample pages this time including Bodoni MT 12pt as an option. "Yeah, I like the fourth one."

We had issues over images used. He wanted these screen caps from this episode of Lost where these two characters were killed off, but I was never sent the images he wanted and he was on vacation and not answering calls or e-mail. I FOUND high resolution pics exactly like the ones he described, and dropped them in. He can't tell the difference until I tell him that they aren't the ones he provided. He e-mails me the pictures. They are pictures he TOOK OF HIS TELEVISION SET AT AN ANGLE SO THE FACES ARE FRIKKEN SQUISHED and demands that I change the ones I had out for these shitty pictures.

Another photo issue. He wants a mugshot of M. Night Shyamalan for this big piece in the newsletter about their boycott of The Last Airbender. The picture he provided was too small and would have come out pixilated when enlarged. He throws a fit about the higher resolution one I drop in, and demands the one he provided. I use one of the two pictures he sent me and he answers, "No, not THAT one. We used that one in the last newsletter." So I spend a friggin' hour on Google looking for large images of Shyamalan looking stupid, because that's what he wants, and oddly enough there aren't THAT many. I get three, he FINALLY chooses one and now that issue is put to rest.

But the issue that's making me want to introduce Mr. Kitchen Knife to Ms. Jugular Vein is the FUCKING headline FONTS. Once again I'm getting inundated with e-mails that the fonts for headlines in the inside pages "don't look right" and to "use the tighter font." WHAT THE FUCK DOES THAT MEAN?! He circled a font in there, Book Antiqua bold italic 12pt flush left, and says he wants the headlines to be that. They were all already Book Antiqua bold 12pt flush left, and so I changed them to be as he specified. His latest batch of corrections site certain pages as having the wrong font. I'm confused, and end up calling him, having a 45 minute conversation just about fonts, and I realize he doesn't seem to know what the fuck ITALICIZED means. So we go over the drafts together, he tells me what he wants and I make note of it. All headlines Book Antiqua bold. New headlines are flush left, subheadlines are flush right, headlines below those are Book Antiqua bold italic 12pt flush left. All right. Got it! I send him the PDF with the changes and suddenly I'm getting the, "Did you not REMEMBER WHAT WE DISCUSSED AT ALL LAST NIGHT?!?!?!?" e-mails implying I'm an idiot. Instead of breaking down at this point, I create a new PDF of the sample fonts and tell him to PICK THE ONE HE LIKES. His last e-mail goes, "I realized what I didn't like after we hung up. I don't know what to tell you, maybe the font just looks different when it's smaller." MOTHERINGFUCKINGSHITABRICKCOCKSUCKERTITS. My last interaction was writing out all of the headlines on the pages in question and next to them writing what font they are, point value, whether they're flush left or right and why they are bold italic when he apparently HATES that font.

This shit better be done by tonight or there will be hell to pay.

EDIT: BTW, the fonts in my original first draft were what he implied liking over the phone, though he instructed me to change them to bold italic twice before that.

The whole issue of payment was that he offered this guy $600 to do it, which he mentioned in a meeting. This gave me the idea to ask for the job since I needed the money for the trip in October, was going to have been a recent graduate with nothing else to do when I would be working on it, and they really needed help since this newsletter was supposed to be out in December, but that first guy who was offered the money was fucking them over. During the 45 minute conversation, the guy tells me they can't pay me as the newsletter is always volunteer work and they don't pay people to do it. When I had previously e-mailed the president asking about pay, he wrote back that the guy doesn't pay members (I am not a member... yet. But now I never will be) and that it's expected that members work for free. So it's my fault for assuming the $600 offer would shift to me, but goddamn it the pages that guy who was offered the money were SHIT. I had to redesign 36 original pages. It's like this client is saying my time isn't worth anything. I actually had gotten a freelance writing job and haven't had time to start on the stories I promised them yet. I wrote an apology letter to my new editor and she hasn't gotten back to me. I really hope this didn't fuck that up because a friend from the Viking vouched for me.

Tell Newsletter boy to go fuck himself because you are not going to throw away a freelance job that pays to deal with a moron that clearly has no idea what he wants.

I mean, just reading that made me want to punch a wall.

In my little corner of the world...

Fuck Ben for constantly going off on me for little shit that "annoys him" and then having the audacity to do the same shit to me! I don't listen? Really? I might mishear you because you insist on mumbling while facing away from me and then refusing to repeat yourself, but you totally tune me out or ignore me! How is that fair?!

Yeah, I would just tell him to fuck off, but as mentioned I'm now doing this with the hope of a job reference or whatever at this point.

All the same, I've never felt so abused by a client/editor/etc. When I first started working on this the first weekend of June, I was seriously having nightmares about page design and would stand in the shower thinking about photo placement. I'm not joking.

At the very least I've been thanking my lucky stars that I haven't lived through a holocaust or killing fields situation or anything of the like, because I always feel like such a pussy complaining about work when there are people who REALLY know what stress is like.
