When did it become cool again to make really REALLY REALLY bad 70s movies over thirty years later? More to the point, why? Yes, I admit I was not a fan of Kill Bill Vols. 1 or 2, but the trailer that’s been released for Tarantino’s new crap-fest, Grind House, makes even camp 70s zombie/action/horror look legit. The fact that the bit that the trailer comes from is likely a product of Robert Rodriguez makes for an even sadder Ash.If you are feeling the need to see what I’m talking about, click below for the YouTube version of the trailer. But it will make you sad too. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
In other news, my company sucks. Very first day as a full-time permanent employee and they announce suddenly that our bonus tiers have all been adjusted “to challenge us more.” That’s right, they make us produce more in order to get what they were giving us before. If we “only” produce the same amount as before, we get half. And all supposedly so that we get warm fuzzies because we work for a company which challenges and motivates us.
You know, words just do not describe how much I hate it when people think I’m stupid and try to treat me accordingly. To say that this move is for our benefit and NOT the company just wanting us to push their wares more is the biggest crock of shit ever. Yeah, the company exists to make money . . . but I WORK THERE to make money. To cut my bonus in half EVEN THOUGH YOU’RE ALREADY TURNING A HUGE PROFIT is purely unexceptable.
Oh, and anyone wanna fire me over blogging about this? Go for it. Ash = litigious and VERY vocal bastard.
That said, just to cover my ass:
