      Since it's an election year, we've decided to spice things up at the Hangover Buffet.
      We will be moving over to a new website, with a completely new page format, and a community.

      But first, we'll be taking votes on the new Logo for the Hangover Buffet. We'll be accepting votes until Friday, February 29, 2008. Make your mark on the HOB Nation by helping us decide which logo is best, so we have to do less work.

      The Letter above the logo is the one you say if you like that logo. Also, one vote per person, and we'll be cross referencing the votes on our journals, so no cheating :P

      Sorry for the late update, but Finals have been keeping me kinda busy,

      First to update you all on the interview, it went great, I impressed everyone there, and it lasted around 2 hours and included a free lunch at Cracker Barrel :P. On the negative side, on my way home from the interview, I got my first ever speeding ticket, but I contacted a lawyer who is going to be able to get it dropped down to a moving violation.

      I spoke with the company on Tuesday, and they still have a couple more candidates to interview, but they'll be making a decision before the end of the year. I personally think I've got it, but everyone keep hoping for me :P

      Onto more recent news, I am now officially a college graduate. I had my last final ever yesterday, which was a bitch, it was Japanese Level 3, and that language is a bitch. Anyway, I just barely failed the final, and the class, but I talked to the professor before the test, found out what I needed to pass the class, and he told me, then I explained that I needed this last class to graduate...so he emailed me after the test and said because I was so close to passing, and I just needed this to graduate, he's passed me. So goodbye college, hello real world!

      Finally. Some leaked footage from Metal Gear Solid 4, its a Boss Fight between Solid Snake and Liquid Ocelot.

      Thanks for reading, and keep the positive wishes in my direction for the job. :D

    • The Whitest Kids U Know

      12 years ago

      DanSama

      So I've been kinda busy recently, to the point of not even really being able to check out RvB. I've been working on two group projects, a sales presentation, an individual project, and studying for various tests along the way. Needless to say its frustrating.

      Anyway, while I've been doing all of this work I have my tv on as background noise, and there have been a lot of commercials running on the adult swim line-up about a new sketch show on Fuse called "The Whitest Kids U Know" by the comedy troupe of the same name. So after seeing the commercial for the billionth time, I figured I would check it out. Let me tell you, I'm glad I did, there were some skits that had me dieing with laughter.

      Anyway, I scared up a few skits that I strongly recommend that you check out. If nothing else these skits are worth a few good laughs.

      It's Illegal to Say
      We Gon' Make Love
      Deer Sketch
      Timmy Poops His Pants
      and finally Get a New Daddy

      Like I said, definitely check these out, they are HILARIOUS.

      Anyway, yeah I'd better finish getting ready for class.

      Have a good one guys.

    • My Tattoo Endeavors

      12 years ago

      DanSama

      Well, MikE was in town this weekend, and seeing as we're tattoo buddies, we decided to make a little trip to the tattoo parlor.

      MikE got an outline of North Carolina with the word "Made" inside it. Meanwhile, I got this baby here. <pssst click the link :P

      And oh yeah, my newly ex girlfriend decided to break things off Saturday, just before my tattoo trip, but of course after I ran up a $95 phone bill talking to her, and more appropriately an expensive dinner and a movie date. No hard feelings though, cause I got some kickass ink :P

    • My day at the career fair.

      12 years ago

      DanSama

      So today was a lucrative day. I got in touch with my academic advisor and got my scheduling, and from there I went on to the Business major's career fair. So I looked into it, and one of the companies that I would LOVE to work for in my lifetime was there. N B Handy, a major distributor of Roofing Materials, HVAC Materials, and Sheet Metal Fabrication Machines in the American South East. So naturally I didn't go straight to them, haha, I did a couple of dry runs with other companies that interested me.

      The first company I talked to, I hadn't even heard of before, so I figured, no big deal if they didn't like me, it would get the nerves out of my stomach, and I'd just go from there. Well oddly enough, things went well, the company is Steel Fab Incorporated, they basically build steel frames for large buildings. Kinda neat, they liked my past machine shop experience, gave me some fliers, asked me for a resume, and sent me on my way. No big deal, heh.

      From there I went to Woseley, a major construction supply company that owns Fergusson and Stock, one's a major infrastructure construction supply company, ie pipes, wires,etc. and Stock, covers the other facets of construction supplies, drywall, wood, etc. The talk with them went really well, they asked me if I would be interested in an internship program, everything is gravy at this point. Hand a resume, move on to the next suck---err I mean business :P (see a trend here?)

      Next was some Electrical component supply company, nothing too exciting, but I knew the one of the recruiters from being in classes with him a year or so ago, so I stayed and talked, and they seemed pretty cool. I am pretty sure they are going to call me, because we had a nice talk.

      Finally I mustered up the courage to talk to the big company, N B Handy. And I must say right up front, it went beautifully. I introduced myself, typical introduction stuff, but I intentionally let slip that I had been doing a little research into the company. She of course was tickled to hear this, or that I had even heard of the company in the first place. Anyway, she mentioned that not a lot of college students show interest in a company like theirs, and she was impressed that I knew about the product lines and such. And she was completely blown off her feet when she had heard that I worked in a machine shop that made a spiral former machine that was in fact in their catalog, and they have sold multiple of. Needless to say, she said "I will DEFINITELY be giving you a call" and I decided it was time to get to class.

      Well I figured it couldn't hurt to talk to a couple more recruiters before leaving. Boy was I wrong. First I was stopped by this recruiter for "Regional Acceptance Corporation" who was really leery to do anything by ask me vague questions like "Are you interested in quickly gaining management experience?" What was I going to say? No I don't want to gain management experience, thank you much. Anyway, I stop and talk with them, and everything seems fine, until I ask "So what exactly does Regional do?" at which point the bomb was dropped, They were a credit agency that basically takes up contracts with car dealerships to finance cars, and collect debts. FUCK THAT! haha, the only problem was they already had my resume from when I first started talking with them. So I really REALLY hope that they don't call me.

      And the last one was a contracting company out of North Carolina, essentially they thought they were getting into a Construction management career fair, and they signed up for a business career fair. Not my fault for wanting to talk with them, haha. So anyway I talk with the guy and I can tell by the reaction to him seeing "Marketing" on my name tag, He was disinterested. To the point where he didn't ask me any professional questions at all, mainly stuff about the weather, and traffic, and such. To the point where I started asking HIM about what the company does. Needless to say, I am not impressed, and it was a waste of my time.

      But on the plus side, I got 3-4 impressive leads, and the most promising of which is my dream job!

      She mentioned that she wanted me in their internship program that they are starting this summer, and I'm all for that. From there, I'm sure to get a sales position, and their sales trainee program will put me at around $40k starting, probably more when I complete the trainee program.

      Anyway, lucrative day.

      Oh btw, I sort of have a girlfriend now, but more on that later :P

    • Gaki no Tsukai

      12 years ago

      DanSama

      Been a while since I've updated you guys...and I apologize for ending my contest abruptly. Freaking school is evil in a way that it seems to consume almost every waking moment I have anymore.

      Of course I only have one more semester after this one and then I'll be finished with Academia for the rest of my life...or until I decide to get my Masters muuuuuuuuuuuuch later in life.

      As most of you know, I am in a level 2 Japanese language class...2 of 4 that is. Anyway, I really searching youtube for Japanese footage. This way I can listen to it and see what I understand. In one of these linguistic expeditions, I came across an interesting game show called Gaki no Tsukai. The full name is "Downtown no Gaki no Tsukai ya Arahende!!" The name means Downtown's "This Ain't No Job for Kids!". Basically think of it as a Japanese version of Jackass...only MUCH better. I say a Japanese Jackass, but that's not the best comparison. There are similarities though, for one, they use a decent amount of famous Japanese actors in their misadventures. The other part being the misadventures themselves. For instance the clip here. There is the physical pain of Jackass, and they do a lot in public. Where the main difference is though, is this show is a different kind of funny than Jackass. While Jackass itself consists of mostly gross out tactics, bone crunching pain, and toilet humor. This consists of slap stick humor using a lot of references to historical Japanese culture (clothing, artifacts of pain, and ninjas), as well as off the wall newer age antics (for instance a massive group of people dressed as smiley face people tickling someone in a library until they cry). Like i said its a different kind of funny.

      That being said, its bedtime so I can get up for yet ANOTHER day of college.

      and oh yeah, if you missed the link from before, check it out here:

      It's going good, I'm tired, but that's very normal for me. Considering I usually go to sleep when the sun is just starting to come up.
