Letter Day: 17, Beats working for a living

February 26, 2007

I’m halfway through Monday and it’s already been a long week, so you’ll have to excuse if Letter Day has an edge you could shave with. Roll sound.

 

Letter 1


One can infer from your stories that you work in an office building? Is this true?

What would you ideally do for a living if given a choice.

Jerry Contrail, Moline, Il.

Well, work is a pretty strong word but I do get paid to hang around a desk all day. As for what I would do if given a choice: I have been given the choice to do anything I want. Admittedly I’ve rarely take proper advantage of my options, but outside of mathematician I don’t think a lot of career options were closed off to me. People too often confuse poor work ethic and a tough path as denial of opportunity. So I guess the answer to “What would I do if given a chance” is “Not a whole lot”; but I ain’t dead yet so that answer could change.

Letter 2

You guys are awesome at answer messed up questions. How can I get good at answering questions?

Chem Burlap, San Luis Obispo, CA.

 

Honestly Chem, answering questions is a pretty empty venture. Most folks asking want validation more than information. As long you stroke some part of their psyche they walk away happy static puppies, secure in whatever word view they came in with. You really want to put your time to good use I suggest you start questioning answers. You might not learn anything, but at least you’re not contributing to the public pool of disinformation. Also: get a library card; those suckers are awesome these days.

Letter 3


Are you guys METAL!!!

Rance Ulrich, Pholgistien, Germany

 

 

Yeah we’re fucking METAL!

—————————————————————————-

Letter 4

What’s with all touchy feely shit lately? Did you get a sponsorship from the lifetime network or something? Half your posts lately read like a goddamn tampon commercial.

Jake Buick, Castelmore, MI.

 

 

Look Jake, I just happen to be a poignant motherfucker prone to laying down poetic phrasing and sweeping intellectual vistas. You think I want be like this? I was raised by women son, I never had a chance… I grew to need the bars before I ever saw the prison. See, there I go again with the flowery shit. Anyways I’ll try and lay down some plain, iron souled, sarcasm this week to try and balance things out.

 

Ps. Can you actually get sponsorships from the Lifetime channel. The Beats Entropy Employee lounge could use a new couch and less alley traffic.

—————————————————————————————-

 

Letter 5

I’m going to go punch my boss in the face. Please provide inspirational music for the act.


Sarah in Tucson

 

 

Anything for a good cause.

 

If you plan on one punch then an argument.

 

If you’re staging a home invasion then laying the Beat Down.

If you’re going to be real man and kill the bastard.

 

If you change your mind and just want to fuck with their head

    It’s like you’re inside my head

    And you have awesome taste in music to boot. This letter day inspired me so much I am going to have to beat someone up. I mean, not putting this soundtrack to use would be criminal.


  2. “I mean, not putting this soundtrack to use would be criminal.”

    At the very least you a substantial case could be made against you in civil court.

    @jive: no killing the people in your workplace that we like, though.

    populating the world with happy static puppies is the new nefarious mission of Beats Entropy, eh? Which reminds me that I originally thought BE was “Beast’s Entropy”, though which Beast I had no idea, it just accounted for all of the bile…which remindes me to ask for a glass of milk…no no, that’s cookies.

    People pleasing is over rated. You should have a day dedicated to the mocking of individuals. It could be called….mocking individuals…day :/

    Cookie monster singing “hit me baby one more time” is the best part of waking up! Er… or the coffee thing whatever
