Although I appreciate a good espresso as much as the next guy, a lot of baristas fancy themselves as artisans instead of wage slaves. And people wonder why the percentage of random beatings is higher with Starbucks employees.

Get baked instead. It's better for you!
The IQ of those who tried to juggle messages and work fell by 10 points -- the equivalent to missing a whole night's sleep and more than double the 4-point fall seen after smoking marijuana.

In this position you will be helping me find a job. I'm 28, male, multitalented in publishing, art and media (or a dilettante, however you like to put it), so they range of jobs we'll be searching is broad. The work environment in my apartment is laid-back and fun as long as we get our work done.

Maybe the topic should be "Movies", but it's work for me. Carving foam for the Untitled Mike Judge Film, (it was originally titled "Mr. 3001", but for now it's "UMJF"). This movie has an $85 MILLION budget, a BIG show for lil' old Austin. The important thing is, Boho-Daddy gets his cut. Praise be!

What's that? You say the life of a burger jockey ISN'T the high-paced glamour trip that everyone says it is? Find out for yourself!
And just in case you were thinking of having a nice salad instead of that greasy cheeseburger on your lunchbreak (gotta watch that girlish figure, ya know), think again!

There are many jobs available in film, but most people don't know the first thing about how movies get made. Ever wonder exactly what a key grip is/does? Got the itch to be a stuntman? Ever wonder how overpaid studio execs manage to produce shitty movies more often than not? The answers are all right here, explained in hilarious detail by a veteran DP. Having worked as a props man for years, I can vouch for the validity of the job descriptions. There's also a handy index of film jobs to help you decide if there's work for you in the movie industry.

Working at the Relay, I came into contact with (indeed, I actually worked FOR) a number of deaf people, and you had to pick up sign language pretty fast if you wanted to take a smoke break or go to the can or find out where they hid your paycheck. Unfortunately, back then I didn't have this excellent ASL primer to use as a reference.
