    Anyone else (specifically diehard Star Trek fans) think that Russell T Davies is turning into the Doctor Who equivalent of Berman and Bragga? I’m just to tired to even go into a long winded spiel. This below was to funny to pass up posting:

    And to top it all off how about Tom Baker Says?

    Ever wonder what superhero you are? If so give the “Which Superhero are you?” quiz a shot. My results below:

    You are Green Lantern

    Green Lantern
    The Flash
    Wonder Woman
    Iron Man
    Hot-headed. You have strong
    will power and a good imagination.
    Click here to take the "Which Superhero are you?" quiz…

    The results are a little weird. Catwoman 50%, Wonder Woman 30%, and Supergirl 20%? I think answering no to the Do you ever wear a pushup bra? question should have eliminated those ladies from my results. That’s the way it goes.

    When the Star Wars movies were finally put out on DVD I was more than a little pissed off that Lucas decided to only issue the digitally remastered versions. Well in this on the official Star War site they announced that Lucas is putting out the good stuff in September.

    In response to overwhelming demand, Lucasfilm Ltd. and Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment will release attractively priced individual two-disc releases of Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. Each release includes the 2004 digitally remastered version of the movie and, as bonus material, the theatrical edition of the film.

    This release will only be available for a limited time: from September 12th to December 31st. International release will follow on or about the same day. Each original theatrical version will feature Dolby 2.0 Surround sound, close-captioning, and subtitles in English, French and Spanish for their U.S. release. International sound and subtitling vary by territory.

    They don't mention a price of course. The USA Today does.

    Their wishes will be granted Sept. 12 when Fox releases new two-disc DVDs ($30 each) of Star Wars (since retitled as Episode IV: A New Hope), The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi that include the films as they first appeared in theaters, along with the new, restored versions (now available in the four-disc $70 Star Wars Trilogy).

    These DVDs as stated above will have both old and new versions of the flicks. So let me ask you just how many goddamn times do I have to buy the original trilogy? I have the set of vhs when it was first put out. I have the cool boxed set with the widescreen versions. I have the vhs set of the special edition movies. And finally I have the DVD set that was put out in 2004.

    I just paid 70 bucks in 2004. And now I have to shell out 90 more dollars to buy shit I already own. And as much as I bitch you can bet your ass I'll be picking these up when they come out. It's just the idea of it. That fat fuck Lucas could have just done this in 2004. Beat that dead horse motherfucker. Fucking guy doesn't look like he's all that needy.

    I guess some people will never have enough money. What can you do?

    Let’s talk about hotel security. When you stay at a hotel do you even think about security? Do you automatically assume there is security? If you assume/know there is security at a hotel do you know if they are cops or rentacops? Or sometimes it could something worse than a rentacop.

    If you come to my hotel and check in after 11pm don’t ask me about security. You may or may not like the answer you will get. Because call me odd but when a guest asks me a question I answer as honestly as I can. There is no security sunday through thursday. None. If I have problems I call the cops at the first sign of something is going wrong. I don’t go and investigate. I call the cops and let them deal with it. I’m payed my 8.75 an hour to be an auditor, nothing more nothing less.

    Security on the weekends up until very recently had been cops. Police Officers who do the security gig as a part time job. It’s nice having cops as security for a number of reasons. First off you feel safer. Knowing that the security guard is packing heat and knows how to use it is always refreshing. It’s not so inspiring when it’s the fatting lazy rentacop and his can of mace and long flash light. Rentacops are making shit for wages. Like they give a shit about their job anymore than I do mine?

    I mentioned it gets worse? What happens when the management pisses off the cops and the cops quit? What can be worse than a rentacop? What happens is the management of the hotel has one of the engineers do security on the weekend. Now the guys nice enough. But he has no defense from anything that can harm him. If some drunk rowdy guys give him shit he can toss his tool belt at them?

    Plus it’s the obvious fact the guy is a hotel engineer. If some guy in wearing a tool belt and a hotel uniform comes up to my room to tell me to be quiet I’m just not going to take him seriously. The cops wear suit and ties. They have a little plastic badge that identifies them as hotel security. Big difference there.

    And here is some advice from me to management. Get the cops back. I don’t give a fuck what the story is. Get them back. We have had the rentacops before. Your going to find out the hard way about them. Suck it up get the police back. And you need to have your head examined for letting the engineer do security. That one has done it before and caused nothing but problems. The hotel is supposed to be getting better. I only see it getting worse.

    Eve Online, another mmorpg. Like I need another one. This one is the closest thing you will find to Earth & Beyond.

    One Two
    Three Four

    I played it for 16 hours on Friday. From 7am to 11pm. I haven’t done that in a long time.

    This people is the beginning of the end:

    Effective Tuesday, May 16, 2006, Van Galder Bus/Coach USA will stop serving the Ramada Inn at South Beloit. Our new loading/unloading are will be at the McDonalds/BP Travel Plaza, which is located at IL-75&I-90. All scheduled departure times will remain the same.

    What is the most likely? Guests who use the bus have to find a ride to a shitty hotel or they can take a ride to a decent hotel that isn’t managed by fools?

    I want to talk about communication tonight. I’ll start with the definition of the word since I know that hotel managers don’t have a clue what it means.

    com·mu·ni·ca·tion (k?-myu-‘ni(-ka-‘sh?n)

    1. The act of communicating; transmission.
      1. The exchange of thoughts, messages, or information, as by speech, signals, writing, or behavior.
      2. Interpersonal rapport.

    Pretty simple I think.

    Two quotes follow. The first quote is from the local paper published May 13th:

    …free calls to both the 815 and 608 area codes appeals to those visiting town to visit different attractions…

    And then in the staff notes from April 27th (bolded and underlined to stress it’s importance?):

    Phone Calls for guests: all 815 & 608 #’s $.50 for guests, free for frequent stayer Members!!!!

    Now I guess my question is at what point do we the employees get to be told officially about this? Or has the hotel fallen so far into chaos that we now have to get our information about hotel policy changes from the local newspaper? I think at the core this is one of the biggest problems at the hotel. The lack of communication. Even worse is either the incompetence of the managers or them just not caring (whats worse?) that prevents this info getting out to the front desk employees.

    Because this is a big change. The all calls 50 cents to a lesser degree can be handled by changing info in the computer I would assume. The same can be said for the free calls. I’ve checked in the computer and these people are getting free local calls. The problem is when these people come in or call in and ask if they get free calls I tell them no. And people want this kind of thing. It’s a feature people won’t stay at your hotel if you don’t have it. And the management here can’t even afford the time to type up one simple memo that informs the front desk about this change.

    Until I see such memo or one of these “managers” chooses to inform me about this change I’m going to continue to not acknowledge this change. If they don’t care I don’t care. The way the hotel is run I swear that our company mission statement is made up entirely with the goal of fucking over the guest the best they can.
