New World Order

Or possibly something less dramatic.

So the big news that I talked about before the long weekend was that I have a new job. I’m now part of the corporate 9-5 machine, and frankly, I’m pretty content there. Sure, I’ll miss raging against the machine, but the machine doesn’t make me wake up at 3:30 a.m. Plus I have an office.

But rest assured, fair readers, this site will not be allowed to wither and die. Instead, it will become more like other popular weblogs (like adsthatsuck, for example) and be updated when events warrant and time allows. I’m hoping for two-to-three times a week. And I still intend to introduce a podcast in the fall.

So keep checking the site, kids. It may take me a few weeks to get used to the 9-5 grind and find time to rant thoroughly, but I promise not to leave you hanging in the meantime.



  1. Joe, I remember when you used to be hardcore. I can’t believe that you’re finally subscribing to the hated 9-5, suburban-living, toned down bullshit that drives me crazy. I don’t know if we can be friends anymore. I’m serious. This kind of…hang on…I’ll finish this post later…some people from the office are going on a Starbucks run. Yum!

  2. may i officially welcome you to the thriving (snoozing?) colony of ottawa 9-5ers. i hope *your* 9-5 job inspires you somewhat and doesn’t eat your soul like mine does. i also hope that your office coffee is palatable and that no one shouts obscenities in the cubicle next to you. that’s for sure my least favourite part of my job… the obscenities… they can get to a person over time…

  3. my, what cheer. in the same note, i hope your boss isn’t an evil, babyeating, lifesucking heartless bitch from hell who delights in manipulation [not in a good way], strife and the sense of a soul well crushed. have beer, joe.

  4. ha, you’re all suckers. see, you should have all stayed in school for the rest of your lives, like me, so you wouldn’t have to have any bosses and so that, slowly and imperceptibly, your life could BECOME your work.

    waitaminute. that came out wrong…

  5. Joe it has to happen to all of us eventually. I am hoping to go kicking and screaming in a few years.

    p.s. Shut up Jacques!
