furious about age discrimination

on August 22, 2012 - 9:58pm

I am really furious hearing that people over 40 were excluded from the screening of Coffee Town.

Age discrimination is a huge problem in this country. People over 50 are spending 3x as long between jobs as people in their 20's. The Wall Street Journal has been running articles about this.

I noticed a lot less older people on the streets in New York City, recently, presumably because they aren't employed.

This is not the first time I'm hearing about this sort of thing with Josh. I heard rumors that older fans were excluded from the crowd scenes in the "If I Walk Away" video.

I have noticed, in crowds, that Josh seems to prefer to socialize with younger fans.

I am getting very incensed about this.

earth friendly?

on August 1, 2012 - 8:59am

I got my membership card.

It came in an envelope with bubble wrap and a return address label -- which is a petroleum product.

Huh? Why does a membership card need all this? Do people actually return membership cards?

Also, the poster, CD & membership card came in 3 separate packages.

Is this earth friendly?

new CD

on July 28, 2012 - 8:19am

Got membership renewal package with new CD -- YAY! I love getting new Josh music.

New picture still fits in my poster frame.

I gather he's gone back to mispronouncing February -- perhaps it's more authentic that way, as that's how he originally recorded it. He had corrected it in at least on performance.

Still wishing we could get a full video of that all female Brazilian drumming corps doing "Voce" with Josh. The Brazilian fans still want him to go to Brazil. He's got to go there and do that. The other drummers who have done this song with him aren't quite capturing the excitement of that original recording.

I still think I'm hearing high frequency clipping on this CD. I want a DVD. DVDs have better sound quality.

Wow! That was efficient. As soon as my membership expired, they popped up that purchase screen. Of course, I renewed. Definitely want the CD.

Sweeney's Tweeter

on May 3, 2012 - 1:00pm

Mourning the deletion of the Sweeney's Tweeter twitter account.

Josh made a casual comment about finding it creepy that someone was tweeting for his dog. Whoever did the Sweeney's Tweeter twitter account did not want to creep Josh out and deleted the account.

This is *really* sad. Maybe Josh was creeped out by that account, but I certainly was not. Whoever was doing that account was very funny, warm, creative, not at all malicious, and totally respectful of Josh. It was not a stalker account. This account had over a thousand followers and it was very well done and entertaining.
