Four week notice by Phil the Canuck (4.00 / 1) #1 Wed Sep 15, 2021 at 01:49:27 PM EST
I've been asked twice and both times the company did absolutely nothing with the extra time they requested.

After working with the agency by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #2 Wed Sep 15, 2021 at 01:56:54 PM EST
to get Mrs. Ha hired, I understand the four weeks. The agency sent a 40 page PDF to be filled out and asked it be sent back by email or fax. Mailing was not allowed.

Their email gateway blocked attachments larger than 10 megs. It took about three emails to get everything back to them.

It took a few go arounds for them to accept it all, including Mrs. Ha having to fill out non-citizen paperwork, because she couldn't leave a blank form, even if it stated it was for non-citizens only.

I'd like to see U2 again by wiredog (4.00 / 1) #3 Wed Sep 15, 2021 at 03:11:35 PM EST
I'm not angry enough to go to a DK show anymore.

SEATAC has a nice concourse where you can sit and watch the ramp and runway operations.

Earth First!
(We can strip mine the rest later.)

DK might be safely in my past by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #4 Wed Sep 15, 2021 at 03:34:46 PM EST
even if I never saw them.

I have about two and a half hours to kill in SEATAC, I can find that concourse.

DK shows aren't so angy anymore by lm (4.00 / 1) #6 Sun Sep 19, 2021 at 01:22:06 PM EST
I saw them at the 9:30 Club's last show before shutting down before the Pandemic.

They're still doing entirely their old repertoire with a few tweaks (MP3 Get Off the Web instead of MTV Get Off the Air) but it comes off as ironic social commentary more than outright anger. The Jello stand-in (Skip) is good enough on vocals. The rest of the band is solid although D.H. Peligro really steals the show.

I was a bit disappointed that they don't have any new material since Jello left. But it was a fun show.

Alas ... by BlueOregon (4.00 / 1) #5 Sat Sep 18, 2021 at 05:35:35 PM EST
... going to have to miss the concert at the Armory ... as I'm working tonight.

We used to live a block walk from it (which meant that people who wanted to go there for shows like to park in our driveway ... assholes). Bit further away now.

Enjoy!

Bummer, there could have been more people by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #8 Mon Sep 20, 2021 at 03:27:32 PM EST
I know there that I wouldn't have met up with.

The Femmes may be the only 80s band ... by lm (4.00 / 1) #7 Sun Sep 19, 2021 at 01:24:56 PM EST
... that I really would like to see.

I'd go to see a number of 80s bands if the venue were intimate enough. I really liked Poptone (1/2 of Bauhaus, 2/3 of Love and Rockets) tour a few years ago. But for the most part, I'd rather see a new show.

Devo might be an exception. Or if Brainiac reformed.

They were really good by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #9 Mon Sep 20, 2021 at 03:31:19 PM EST
I knew about half their set, and I can't think of any songs I knew that they didn't play.

Gordon Dano, I guess he wrote their debut album while in high school. Way too talented.
