THE WEEKLY BIATCH…!!!

Right, yeh, so… you might have read the editorial I wrote entitled “So, you want to mentor the newly awakened?”… a lot of stuff in there about commitment from the mentor’s side of the fence, that was because I’d run across some stories of people who were not treated well, fairly or, in my ever-so-humble opinion, effectively by persons claiming to be “mentors”.

Well, that got me thinking y’know… commitment… y’know, that thing that you give away freely when you make a PROMISE to do something. Well, turns out that a lot of folks like jumping on “bandwagons” in our culture but when the “pushie” “shovey” bits come… yeh, melt away like first season’s snow flakes right? Probably every person in the culture who has ever had, run, formed, coordinated or administered a group in the VC, online or off, could probably treat you to a litany of “losses” when it comes to getting people to commit to anything… why is that?

Why do you think that it is so difficult, nay, damn near impossible to get people to commit themselves to any project, exercise or activity within the VC most of the time?

Do you think it’s because, with the exception of local, active and interactive groups, NOBODY REALLY GIVES A FLYING FUCK?

Go on. tell me you’ve NEVER gotten that feeling…

So, then, naturally, the next question becomes, “Why should I give a fuck?” You wouldn’t be… *snigger*… human if you didn’t entertain that thought and I suppose that, when you really get down to it it’s a case of the old, “If it doesn’t directly, materially, affect me and improve my life why should I give a shit?” syndrome.

The biggest question of all then becomes, “What the living fuck are we doing here at all?”

Jus’ sayin’…

More beer, more smoke, MORE FUCKIN’ NOIZE…!!!


 

….annnnnd a song here for my beautiful Vampwife Lady M…


…annnnnnd one for all the heartstringers out there… go on, grab your special significant other and get yer groove on…

Be good, stay well and safe and fed…!!!

Welllllllllllllll it’s Sat’dy night….

Chainsawed, Mashed Up, Slapped aroun’ th’ place,
Sprayed in ya face like a fuckin’ can uv mace…!!!
by

Tim

 

Well, slap me upside a tree and call me a Flying Fox me little mammal friends… how the feathery, flappin’ fuck are ya?

Saturday again, already, how the time flies by when you’re having fun eh?

We got a message at our Facebook portal this week, a question actually, “How to become a Vampire?”… goes right up there with, “Can u make me Vampire?”, “Tell me how to become Vampire?”, “Make me Vampire… I give you – blood/money/my sister” et fucking al…!!!

We need every fucking sane modern living Vampire to take to their websites, FaceBook, Blog, Website… whatever and post the message very clearly in very large colourful letters. “YOU CAN’T BE MADE INTO A VAMPIRE – EITHER YOU ARE ONE OR YOU ARE NOT AND NO AMOUNT OF WISHING WILL MAKE IT ANY OTHER WAY”

Despite assertions that people do take on “Vampiric Characteristics” when in long term, close personal relationships with real Vampires these traces go away once the relationship is ended.

MAKING YOURSELF DIE WHILE SAYING “MAGIC” WORDS WILL NOT MAKE YOU TURN INTO A VAMPIRE…! – Yes, really, we have really had people offer to commit suicide if we will give them the power to become Vampires afterwards… NOTE: ALL YOU WILL BE IS DEAD…!!!

‘Nuff said… AGAIN*sigh* – and no, that wasn’t the Weekly Biatch either

Heyyyyyy… something real interesting’s been floating around for a while now, apparently, and, in the way of all things VC, it eventually hit the fan… and splattered…

The Med-Sang Menace

Hmmmm, never really considered them a menace… just thought they were in a philosophically superior place to everybody else is all… Well, take a look at Lady Sylvere’s Grumpy Vamp and read up, if you haven’t already.

Apparently one of the authors has come forward and apologised for their part in creating the document in question… do people need to apologise for expressing themselves in the United States?

As Lady Sylvere commented, “Oops. My hand slipped. 😂”… hmmmmm

Now here’s something you don’t get every day…!!!

Now then,
I’ve been doing a bit of research… yeah, really… I’ve got something I want to share with you dear reader…

Did you know –

“Over half of people aged 16 and over in the UK (55.5%) were mostly or completely satisfied with their job in 2015 to 2016. While over the short-term this measure showed no overall change (55.8% in 2014 to 2015), there was a deterioration over the long-term (59.0% in 2010 to 2011).” Updated: 25 April 2018

and, in Australia,

Meanwhile, on this side of th’ pond…

(Provided by Forbes) we read, “10 Shocking Workplace Stats You Need To Know”… the list was compiled by David Sturt and Todd Nordstrom, researchers, consultants and authors inside the O.C. Tanner Institute.

Here are a few of their discoveries…

A recent study by CareerBuilder.com shows that a whopping 58 percent of managers said they didn’t receive any management training.
89 percent of bosses believe employees quit because they want more money. Only 12 percent of employees actually leave an organization for more.
A Harvard Business Review survey reveals 58 percent or people say they trust strangers more than their own boss.
Global studies reveal that 79 percent of people who quit their jobs cite ‘lack of appreciation’ as their reason for leaving. People don’t leave companies, they leave bosses.

“WHOA, whatup? M*****f*****s done lost his mind completely now… Why is this relevant? What does it have to do with Vampyres?” I hear you cry….

And that, my fine friends, leads us very nicely to…

THE WEEKLY BIATCH

Img. Source: simply-chateau

Job dissatisfaction… lemme ask the question, how many of you Vampyres work for a living, like me?

How many of you dislike, nay, even hate, your job? How many of you work long, hard hours for inadequate return and minimal benefits? How many of you get home at night and unload on your significant other (making them miserable in the process) before scoffing a television meal and downing six bears so you can pass out in front of the t.v. and take the pain away for a while… before the next gut churning, mind aching, numbing shift comes along to ruin your life again?

Ever thought there’s something wrong with that entire picture?

So, change it…!!!

 

Yeah, yeah, I know… you have a thousand and one good reasons… reasons? or excuses, to not rock the boat.

Let me entertain you with the tale of a wild colonial boy.

I arrived in the United States in late March of 2013. People told me it would take me a good 6 months to a year to find a decent job… I had one in four.

The first ever job interview I attended here was with an owner/manager who looked over my C.V. and made all sorts of “I’m impressed” noises before telling me it was very impressive but wasn’t worth shit here in the U.S., “We don’t recognise foreign qualifications in America” he said. I gathered my papers up, politely thanked him for his time, shook his hand and at the door I turned, flipped him the bird and said “Fuck you…!” – Nobody tells me what I can’t do – period.

Long and short of it I knew where I wanted to be and what I wanted to do, it took me until June 11 this year to get there. Today I have a great job, I like getting out of bed in the morning to get into it, the pay is adequate, I have moderate health benefits sorted out and great people that I work with. Point is, you can too, if you have the balls to go for it…!!!

If you haven’t – STOP READING NOW.

The first thing you have to do is stop paying so much attention to booze and television, that won’t get ya nuthin’.

Second, get around, either to the local job centres or on the internet and see what’s out there for you to think about. So, you don’t have the qualifications for what you want to do – GET THEM…!!! Community colleges and adult education offer a huge range of options to suit just about everyone and there are Federal Programs to give you funds to study. If it’s not enough get a part-timer or Casual to carry you through while you study… y’know, wait tables, flip burgers… whatever.

NOBODY’S GOING TO WALK UP AND SERVE IT UP ON A SILVER PLATTER… You have to go out and get it.

There are no external reasons for your unhappiness… there are no reason’s why, with a little work and effort, and maybe a little sacrifice here and there, you can’t have what you want. I’ve always gone out and made things happen the way I want, sometimes it takes time, perseverance and ingenuity but then I don’t believe y’all are any less intelligent than I am eh?

‘Nuff said.

Like Jimmy says…

“All you need is work, tra lah lalalaaaaa, all you need is wor….” Wot? Love? Ohhhhhhh yeah, all you need is love right?

Yeeeeeeah… how coolio is that?

Well, guess it’s time for me to stfu now… what? Did I hear you agree? Well, here’s something just for you…

Okay, okay, ‘old it down… OI, you lot, stop snoggin’ up th’ back there…

Leaders, leadership, leading, being led… I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about this recently. There have been a lot of extensive posts made, over the years, about “What is a leader” – in reference, obviously, to our beautiful, raucous, frivolous, frenetic modern living Vampire culture. Many, many people have come forward and opined on what is “BEST” for ALL of us… I tend to regard such things with a sort of healthy cynicism now. Many have been the attempts to create leadership frameworks, Councils and the like and without exception each one that has sought to dictate some form of “best practice” among the far and wide groups, Houses, Temples and organisations has failed dismally.

As a matter of fact a leader is;
“A person in control of a group, country, or situation.” – Short and sweet.

Leadership is;
“the set of characteristics that make a good leader.” Also, “The position or fact of being the leader.” And, “the person or people in charge of an organization.”

There, that’s it, nothing mystical, nothing about experience, knowledge or any other thing. Naturally, whenever someone decides THEY are a leader people are going to be looking at what that person has done, said, or not done in the past. That’s natural. The self-declared leaders are going to be looking to their followers to validate their assumed position. It’s the way of things.

Now, here’s the thing, there are many different types of leaders…
That’s the real question isn’t it…?

When all else fails “Keep Calm and Listen to your Muse”…


Or, just say “fuck it all…!!!” and go…


Oh, yeah, for the record, Liverpool and Man. City played a nil all draw, that leaves City at the top of the English Premier League on Goal Average… PFFFFFT…!!!

Ta-rahhh for now like…!!!
