I live in the Memphis area and work in the city itself, so it stands to reason that I hear about the politics of both Memphis and the state of Tennessee. Today is primary day in the state, when voters from major political parties will choose their candidates to face off in the fall election. We’ve been inundated with ads for the various candidates, but there is one Republican gubernatorial candidate in particular that has caught my eye: Basil Marceaux.
I just wonder if he has a red swingline stapler…
I’m not a Republican and I don’t live in Tennessee, but if I did, I would definitely vote for this guy….at least in the primary…
Living an Office Space Life June 11, 2008Posted by Matt in random.

Earlier today, following a “webinar” at work, a few of us were sitting around chatting before venturing back to our 8X8 cubicle cells, when somehow, someway, the subject of the movie “Office Space” came up. Of the five of us present, all but one had seen the movie and we all knew it well enough to throw out verbatim quotes. My coworker Jason told me that I reminded him of Michael Bolton from the film…which I thought was pretty funny.
We all know it and love it because, though it takes the absurdity of spending 45-50 hours a week in an office to the hilarious extreme, Mike Judge really nails down much of how it really is. If you’ve never seen it before and you’ve always wanted to know what office life was like, do yourself a favor and pick it up sometime. Here’s a mix of several great clips from the movie. Enjoy.
and a few more…
