imagine not having to go to work

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

I guess if you count buying every NES game and building a super dope room to have it all in, reading a bunch of books and travelling as work then I'd still work

That's always the little problem in the back of my mind while watching Star Trek. None of these people have to work so they are like a janitor or bar tender on a space ship for fun???

It wouldn't even take much. If I could guaranteed get paid 40 or 50k a year adjusted for inflation as I age that would be fuckin' fine with me.

I get that 50k is a fairly high amount but I just mean that it wouldn't even taken millions for me to not want to work

my partner is Hispanic and she came to my family home for a party once and they played Do You Like Pina Coladas and Margarittaville and she still teases me about how white that party was

I can't help it

Not working doesn't mean you stop undertaking projects and learning stuff, it means that you have total control over which projects you do and what you learn

i don't think this is as clear cut as that. my family tends to use hispanic, for instance, and it's often the case (as it sort of was in petty's story) that the relevant distinction is between countries that predominantly speak spanish and those that don't

I’m closing out nearly three months of unemployment and it has been among the worst periods of my life. I didn’t work on passion projects, I fell asleep often and drank too much. I’m psyched to return to wage slavery next week.

clement greenberg wrote:Perhaps the greatest change that industrialism (along with Protestantism and rationalism) has made in daily life is to separate work from leisure in a radical and almost absolute way. Once the efficacy of work began to be more clearly and fully appreciated, work had to become more efficacious in itself — that is, more efficient. To this end, it had to be more sharply separated from everything that was not work; it had to be made more concentratedly and purely itself — in attitude, in method and, above all, in time. Moreover, under the rule of efficiency, seriously purposeful activity in general tended to become assimilated to work. The effect of all this has been to reduce leisure to an occasion more exclusively of passivity, to a breathing spell and interlude; it has become something peripheral.

Once efficiency is universally accepted as a rule, it becomes an inner compulsion and weighs like a sense of sin, simply because no one can ever be efficient enough, just as no one can ever be virtuous enough. And this new sense of sin only contributes further to the enervation of leisure, for the rich as well as the poor.

I've been unemployed since April 2nd, and I have a newborn baby and this time that I would have otherwise be missing is making me hate our stupid culture so much. I'm grateful to have this window of unemployment and severance pay and spend time with my child that had I still been working I'd have missed.

what a shit priorities we have.

fucking fuck

also, not working rules
