Crazee Joe

Crazy Joe's Mad World!

This Page is a window into the madness that is Crazy Joe! While browsing through this looking glass you will find all sorts of odds and ends, mostly humorous, bitter or sarcastic. With the overall randomness of the updates, photos, videos, comments you will get a good idea of the "ADD" that is what goes through my mind.

A Little Update.

July 26th, 2006

Well my last post has occupied the better part of this page for a bit too long, and a lot has changed so time for another long overdue update!

The biggest change in my life is that I now have a Job! YAY! YAY! WOOOOOOOOOO!
It’s a good Job!

Should I tell you all a little about it? Of course I should.

So a friend got me in to a computer support position for a large trading firm. I work an off shift of 3pm to 11pm- Sunday through Thursday. Which is awesome for my night owl mentality. I never over sleep, (it’s practically impossible to do when you have to wake up at 2PM to get to work on time) I have my Friday and Saturday nights totally free to party, which I have been doing fairly regularly, and even when I over do it on a Saturday night, I just have to drag my hung over ass to work by 3.

The commute to this place is also amazing, I can walk out my door at 2:20 to be at work by 3, and I catch an 11:30 bus and am usually home by 12. We are talking about a little over a 30 minute commute each way. Now that rocks HARD!

On to the job description! It is totally me, I am alone from 6-11 so I need to be a jack of all trades (luckily that’s what I excel at). My main job is watching the servers to make sure nothing goes wrong with them, when issues arise I have to connect to the servers and resolve the problems. While waiting for things to break I also support about 15 people between my office, Chicago and Hong Kong, so I wait for the phone to ring. If nothing breaks then I can sit there and watch TV! Now how much does that rule! I have my foot in the door in the financial industry and am learning about all sorts of trading technologies and software, which is interesting, challenging and will make me so much more employable in the future.

My manager is amazing, My coworkers are great and I am very happy with my salary. I am working with servers and learning new things. Overall I would be hard pressed to be happier working anywhere. After all they wouldn’t pay you for it if it wasn’t work.

In other news I am currently involved in an artistic endeavor which is coming nicely to fruition. Eschatone records is just about ready for business, and things are looking really promising with it. You can check out the myspace page at http://www.myspace.com/eschatone. The official website will be up and running soon. www.Eschatone.com.

I have to say it is great working with partners who are intelligent and hardworking, and not ignorant psychopaths who stab you in the back and steal from you (like one of my ex business partners and other people I have had business dealings with). We are all working together doing what we are good at with a common goal and it’s becoming a reality. It reminds me that there are good people to do business with in this world, and then there are the other scumbags out there who are only out for themselves. I am feeling optimistic about having weeded most of the manipulative bloodsuckers out of my life! But lets not contemplate the negatives!

I am really feeling pretty good about my life right now. Awesome job, Excellent friends, Fantastic apartment. After a string of not so great luck, it looks like I am on a roll now and everything is falling right into place.

I have a lot of other stuff in the works including the strong possibility of an upcoming bash at casa de Crazy Joe. But I will leave it at that for now, and state my earnest intention to post more often (which will probably be forgotten about).

Till next time!

Cause why not?

So I am Bored and Hyper!

What to say, Feeling a bit nostalgic for days gone by. But alas they are gone. I have been looking through some old photos, and thinking about highschool, and college and the time right after. Seems like just yesterday, and yet it was so many years ago. When did we all get so old? When did everyone go out and get themselves careers and families? What happened to our hair!?! Planning for retirement?! What the hell!

Never sure who will stumble across this sight. So for all you webstalkers out there heres an update. I own a co-op in Brooklyn now. Been living here for about a year and a half, and it is actually almost finished. Will it ever be totally done? I doubt it, but it still rocks pretty hard.

I am a career computer technician, Sr desktop support, Jr Network stuff. Currently inbetween jobs and not too interested in ever going back to work. So I better win the lotto soon. Job hunting kinda blows, but thats probably a more appropriately crazee rant for another post.

I have a list of projects I need to get to.

Need to 100% once and for all finish Flesh Feast the motion Picture, burn the dvd’s print the dvd labels and ship em out to the masses.

Working on passing about half a dozen Computer certifications, so stupid Headhunters and HR people will drool and blow there loads over my resume and throw piles of money at me!

Then I need to get a job, where I can get paid an ungodly sum of money, and jerk off all day!

Got to get back on my diet, Put on a few pounds in the last few months, and that will just not do.

I need to get back into practice so I can win the world series of poker this year!

Finally I need to stop procrastinating! In the Immortal words of Ferris Bueller “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around every once in a while, you just may miss it!”

Look It’s a post!

Figured I would finally make a post on this blog that updates to the Crazeejoe Sight.

Need to really fix up this websight. I mean it’s ok but needs work.

First SemiOfficial Post

January 28th, 2006

This is my First official post in my newly redesigned webpage.

Theres still alot of work to do. I need to finish tweaking the layout of this page, and add a ton of content, like more pictures, videos and links. I also need to make adjustments to the way this blogging software updates my page. With that in mind it is possible that I will be editing this post, or removing it completely.

Anyway, Welcome to my Page. I hope you enjoy it.

Expectations

August 30th, 2004

I have always been there for everyone. Keeping it togethor, coming to the rescue, offering advice, Wisdom, assistance wherever possible. I have lent you money, helped you find jobs, helped you move, and lended aid whenever called upon. I have offered you a place to escape your parents, drink, smoke, party. I have diligently cleaned up after my ungrateful house guests for years. I have always been there for you and never asked for anything in return. Now in my hour of need, you all abandon me.
Why not?
I have nothing left to offer you. You have taken it all, and left me nothing in reserve, and I let you. So I guess I am the sucker. Fine then. You can all go to hell!

I had a home once, A loving open home. I lived in a place where everyone was always welcome anytime.
I mourn it’s loss and wonder where I will go from here.
