Non-Working Class Hero: Is It Something To Be?

Hey guys, it’s TheAndySan here.

When I was working at Wal-Mart the other day, I had to restrain myself from walking out. I have had enough of working for someone else, much less working for Wal-Mart. It’s not that there’s anything wrong with Wal-Mart; I feel that I’m at a stage in life where I need to really make something of myself. I also don’t want to end up like my parents who work and work and work just to keep everything afloat. Whenever I go behind the register, my inner integrity’s screaming, “WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING HERE?!! YOU NEED TO BE YOUR OWN MAN AND WORK FOR YOURSELF!!!” I totally agree with my integrity.

That’s one of the reasons I started TheAndySan.com; I need to generate income by working for myself instead of selling out my time to be someone else’s slave. Starting a blog is one of the smallest investments anyone can make. It costs me a little over $100 a year for TheAndySan.com (space and domain) and hell, I’ve used free blogs since 2004 starting with GeoShitties. The only thing more cost-effective than free is if the blog pays you to blog. Oh wait, it does! The only limit to what you can make on a blog is what you put on yourself, and even then you could still make more by using content-generators like forums.

While working at Wal-Mart, I calculated how much I’d need to make in order to cover my expenses. My expenses in a business month (30 days) add up to $410. That’s $102.50 a week, $14.55 a day, or $0.60 an hour. Roughly guesstimating from my AdSense clicks, that’s about 3-4 clicks an hour on average. In other words, I could have ALL of my monthly expenses paid for by my visitors clicking 3-4 ads an hour on any of my sites. That’s nuckin’ futz!

After the whole Kontera & AdSense fiasco, I took it upon myself to completely reevaluate how I blog. I found out that a lot of people don’t like it when you change topics in a blog. Hell, I change topics in every post! I told myself, “This is how I write. I’ll listen to what other people are telling me, but I’m not gonna bend to their will. If I did, then this blog would be no better than Wal-Mart or any other job for that matter.”

Then, I decided to make another blog, this one being better on topic than TheAndySan.com. My idea for SpicyMelon.com is for it to be a free online cookbook of offbeat, cost-effective, and/or simple recipes that users can submit as well as ones that I submit. I plan on incorporating a forum into it in the future so keep an eye out for that. If I get enough recipes, I might make it a book and sell the book with all the available free recipes as well as a lot of recipes exclusive to the book.

You might have noticed that I switched out the Chikita ads with different ads. I’m using ads from AdBrite, but I’m still using Chikita’s Linx. You can sign up for AdBrite by clicking on the AdBrite button in the sidebar.

Last night, Eriopolis and I hung out with Cody at his apartment. We played some Magic: The Gathering, ordered another killer pepperoni and Jalapeno pepper pizza from Domino’s, and we watched all of an anime called Kiddy Grade. I didn’t sleep at Cody’s and got home around 8 in the morning and tried to sleep, but those damn debt collectors kept calling and waking me up!! NYAHH!!!1

In other news, I’ve decided not to get the Yamaha CG-170SA with a hardshell case for $360 at the music store. I looked up on Musician’s Friend to see if I could do better, and I can. Check this baby out: Luna Muse Series Folk Cutaway Nylon-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar. Luna Guitars is owned by Dean Guitars so I already know that this guitar’s gonna be excellent. Here’s a link of the guitar with moAr pics on the Luna Guitars website: Luna Muse Series Folk Cutaway Nylon-String Acoustic-Electric Guitar.

I’m also once again in the market for a new amp. This time, I’m debating between the Line 6 Spider III 2×12 combo and the Line 6 Spider Valve 2×12 combo. I’m gonna save up around $300 and try to find a deal on eBay and if I can’t, then I’ll save up moAr and get something from either eBay or Musician’s Friend.

Well, I’m gonna take a shower before I get ready for work (grr, work). Take care!

I'm Tired Of All The Stupid Questions!!!1

“This isn’t scanning. What should I do?” “Credit. Credit. Sir, I’m paying by credit.” “Do you have to scan the pop?” “The (insert produce here) is (insert price here)” AHHHHHHHHHHHHRRRRRRRRRRRRRGHHHHHHHHHHHGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!1

Ok, I feel a little better. Good evening, it’s TheAndySan here to rock and roll the place.

Today at work, I seriously almost walked out. Near the end of my shift, I was ringing up a very obese woman who was in one of those courtesy electric carts. She had left her regular cart beside my register before I got there. She was complaining about stuff and I just kinda brushed it off and rang her stuff through. Then, she remembered that she forgot to get eggs. Keep in mind that this is during the beginning of third shift when there’s pretty much no one around. I page for a stockman anyway, hoping that someone would come and help me out. Fortunately, someone did come. It was the assistant manager so I felt a little relieved. I continue to ring her stuff up and I get to the section of food that she comps. Comping is short for competitors’ prices. Basically, if you find someplace that has something for less than what Wal-Mart has, you can tell us what their price is and we’ll give it to you for that price. She’s angrily telling me the prices like I’m the sole reason she’s been in Wal-Mart for so long and why she’s buying so much. After all that, the assistant manager comes up with the eggs in hand. I scan ’em. No biggie. After she slides her food card (it’s like food stamps, but moAr elegant) and everything is all said and done, she notices that I forgot to comp the eggs. I do not recall her telling me to do that, and she’s even more upset. I’ve already had an aggravating day and she just pushed all the wrong buttons. I tried to compose myself, but I kept muttering “Fuck!” and rang in the next lady’s order, completely ignoring the previous customer. Since the lady I was ringing up was a fellow Associate, she could relate to my woes and I vented just a tad. In one of the best acts of karma, when the associate manager was helping the other lady with her groceries, she forgot her cane. He then said to her that everyone forgets sometimes. Whoo boy, that made my night! Cody, who was also working that night, said not to worry since she always bitches about everything.

In other, much better news, the band finally had the first practice since Jon joined track around March. Jon’s definitely improved, Joe’s about the same but less rusty, and I was kinda crappy. My timing was craptacular on some songs, and I didn’t sound very good I thought. But hey, that’s why you have practice; to shake off the rust and tighten the band up.

Well, I certainly feel better. I’m gonna play me some Halo 3 with my bros so I’ll see you guys later. Night!

Boobs: To Look Or Not To Look

That is the question. Sup guys, it’s TheAndySan hurr.

Today at Wal-Mart, I was faced with a decision: whether or not I should look at girls’ boobs while I’m working. Being a red-blooded man, the obvious answer would be yes and look moAr. However, chicks have rights too so I feel that looking might constitute as sexual harassment. I came up with the following answer: I should definitely look at girls’ boobs whether I’m working or not. Now before you ladies decide to jump me in the parking lot, here are my reasons:

1 – It’s human nature. The human male is genetically programmed to find an ideal mate; one with large breasts for nursing children. Also, having large breasts shows that the female in question is healthy. Of course, there are limits to the size of the breasts. Having too large of breasts might indicate that the female is overweight and thus the children will be overweight.

2 – Girls like to show them off. Why do they show off the goods if they don’t want guys to look at their racks? It’s because, contrary to popular belief, girls WANT us to look at their boobs. It makes them feel sexually appealing and gives them attention.

So there you have it. I will continue to eyeball chicks’ dirty pillows wherever I am.

Well, I’m gonna go over to Eriopolis’ house so I’ll see you guys later. Bye now!

Today's Episode: "Where's The Wal-Mart Spirit? Not At Wal-Mart!" Or "A Creative Promotional Experiment"

Good evening everybody, it’s TheAndySan hurr to discuss an ever-growing issue at Wal-Mart.

Today, I was talking to a cashier while I was doing pay station AGAIN, and a customer just started using the self-checkout. One of the managers yelled something at me and then I heard “yeah, that’s right!” in a real snotty way similar to how you’d say “yeah, you better run!” Grrrrrr… That pissed me off right there!! After that, I didn’t feel like working anymore and was half-tempted to just walk out. Now, don’t get me wrong, there was a customer checking out, but I did have a close eye on him and if another customer was checking out and/or the girl I was talking to got a customer, I would have gone back to pay station with no problem.

Anyway, after that settled down, I asked the girl I was talking to before. “Where’s the Wal-Mart spirit? It seems that everyone is their own island, but yet there are little cliques still around.” It felt kinda similar to high school, but different.

The way I see things, as long as you’re doing your job in a satisfactory manner, you can pretty much do whatever the hell you feel like doing, provided you abide by the rules and regulations of your workplace. For example, if you work at a restaurant, you probably shouldn’t eat a burger while you’re on the job. It’s been done a lot from what I’ve seen what I worked at restaurants, and even I’ve been guilty of some food sniping. According to my morals and beliefs, I don’t feel one bit guilty reading a magazine if I have nothing to do and no customers around. I love to read! It helps me keep up-to-date on whatever it is I’m reading about AND it presents new ideas and topics. Now if a customer needed help or something while I’m working at pay station, of course I should put down the magazine and help the customer out. That’s obvious! But I believe that you should be doing something to occupy your mind when you have nothing to do.

In conclusion, as a cashier, I feel that I’m very distant from my co-workers and I don’t feel that teamwork spirit that I did when I worked at a restaurant. Despite all my hang-ups with McDonald’s, when the rush was on and we had our best crew in the back, no other fast-food restaurant was faster. 8 double-cheeseburgers? Done! 4 double-quarter pounder meals? Here ya go! 50 chicken nuggets? Fuggeduboudit!!

Ok, is time for topic end, no more will I speak. I want you all to experience big-bang! Lol, Elektronik Supersonik reference!!

I’ve been thinking of various ways to promote my site and I’ve come up with a good idea. I will write the URL of my site on all of the paper money that I have. When I spend my money, it’ll be like giving someone my business card…kinda. I will number each of the bills and if any of you guys run across one, leave me a comment with the number of the bill so I can see who received it. I will begin Operation: AndyCash tomorrow.

Well, I’m gonna hit the sack so I’ll see you lil’ cupcakes later! Nighty-night!

There's A Dick On My Truck, Isn't There?

Hello, it’s the Andy-San here with a sore shoulder.

I had what seemed like a quick shift today. It was getting near the end of my shift and I was gonna leave a bit early because there were no customers in sight and I was in between 2 other cashiers. One of them said that I had to wait until 5 minutes to the end of my shift to leave instead of 10 like I usually do. The managers have the cashiers do this so that they can prepare to close down their registers and take back items and recycle hangers and bags. Apparently, Wal-Mart hates it when you work past your scheduled shift; messes with the scheduling computer or something. No big deal to me since I get a good amount of hours. Anyway, this particular cashier, whose name I forget, said that it was discussed at the previous cashier’s meeting that cashiers are leaving too early and that it was up on the dry-erase board. Determined to prove her wrong, I looked at all of the dry-erase boards I could find and do you know how many had that written on them? A big goose egg! I found nothing about it on any of the dry-erase boards or on any of the cork boards or anywhere else for that matter!! So after I clocked out, I bought a new magazine by Guitar World Acoustic called Acoustic Rock. I haven’t looked at it yet, but it seems interesting. I get out to my truck, and I see that someone sprayed a dick on my door with shaving cream. Jeez… I cleaned that dick off with 2 buckets of water (wow, that didn’t sound gay at all lol).

In other news, I ran into Travis today when I was on break. He said that he’s got his newest project in motion. It has him on vocals and lead guitar, Kyle on drums, Chip on bass, and get this: Benjamin on rhythm guitar. No it’s not Ben Ben, but some other guy named Ben. And here Travis was so adamant about having only one guitarist in the band lol! But it does sound like a killer lineup and I’ll definitely check them out when they start performing live. Also, I learned part of a song that Marty Friedman does on Rock Fujiyama episode 12 called Mizuiro no Ame that was originally by Junko Yagami. Check out the clip of him playing it right here:

Here’s the clip of the original song:

It sounds awesome when played on guitar. And he mixed it with The Doobie Bros’ Long Train Runnin’. Now you know why Marty’s my all-time favorite guitarist, with Paul Gilbert coming at a very close second. Those bastards are crazy!!!1

Well, I’m gonna hit the shower since my shoulder is killing me from lifting some weights…to scan them lol! Good-Night!

Andy-San

P.S: I got 3,492 views yesterday! Awesome!! Also, I’ll be updating my History page soon!

He's The One They Call Dr. Gentleman!!!1

What does the kooky title mean? Nothing, really. Sup, it’s the Andy-San here chillin’.

Not much has happened as of late. I’ve been working a lot at Wal-Mart so my free time is limited. The CD I ordered hasn’t come in yet, but it should be in sometime this coming week.

In other news, I came up with this really cool guitar riff that was initially a string-skipping exercise. I’m thinking of adding it to one of my songs that I’ve been working on for forever. I still can’t wait for my guitar lessons with Rich this Tuesday.

Oh yeah, in my previous post, I said that the most daily views I received were 824. At the end of the day, they reached 892. Thanks again guys!! My next goal is to reach 1,000 daily views.

Due to my extreme boredom and because I have some French viewers, I’m gonna translate this post into French and back into English using the most accurate translation tool at my disposal: WorldLingo lol. Here goes:

Que le titre fou signifie-t-il ? Rien, vraiment. Sup, c’est l’Andy-San ici chillin’.

Pas beaucoup s’est produit en date de tard. J’avais travaillé beaucoup au Wal-Marché ainsi mon temps libre est limité. Le CD que j’ai commandé n’est pas entré encore, mais il devrait avoir lieu en autrefois cette prochaine semaine.

Dans d’autres nouvelles, j’ai fourni ce riff vraiment frais de guitare qui était au commencement un exercice corde-sautant. Je pense à l’ajouter à une de mes chansons que j’avais travaillé dessus pour pour toujours. Je ne peux pas encore attendre mes leçons de guitare avec des riches ce mardi.

Oh ouais, dans mon poteau précédent, j’ai dit que les vues les plus quotidiennes que j’ai reçues étaient 824. À la fin du jour, ils ont atteint 892. Merci types encore ! ! Mon prochain but est d’atteindre 1.000 vues quotidiennes.

En raison de mon ennui extrême et parce que j’ai quelques visionneuses françaises, je vais traduire ce poteau en français et de nouveau dans l’anglais à l’aide de l’outil de traduction le plus précis à ma disposition : Lol de WorldLingo. Va ici :

And now back to English:

What the insane title does it mean? Nothing, really. Sup, it is Andy-San here chillin’.

Not much occurred in date of late. I had worked much at the Wal-Market thus my spare time is limited. CD which I ordered did not enter yet, but it should take place in formerly this next week.

In other news, I provided this really fresh front of guitar which was at the beginning a cord-jumping exercise. I think of adding it to one of my songs which I had worked above for for always. I cannot await yet my lessons of guitar with rich person this Tuesday.

Oh, in my preceding post, I ouais said that the daily sights that I received were 824. At the end of the day, they reached 892. Thank you standard still! ! My next goal is to reach 1.000 daily sights.

Because of my extreme trouble and because I have some French viewers, I will translate this post into French and again in English using the tool for the most precise translation at my disposal: Lol de WorldLingo. Goes here:

Hmm, WorldLingo still has a lot of humorous bugs to work out. They could leave them in for the lulz, but I dunno.

Well, that’s about it for me today. If you’re going to prom, drive safe, wear a comdom, you get the idea. See-ya!

TheAndySan's Icer Uppercut Four Year Anniversary of Big-uh Pow-ah!!

4/16/2004

Welcome to the first edition of Whuzzupp! I haven’t done much to this site yet. I can only work on it at school or my friend’s house, so it will be slow.

“The mighty sequoia grows slowly, but surely.”
-Me.

Whuzzupp all my faithful viewers, it’s the Andy-San hurr celebrating my 4-year anniversary of AnJa Entertainment!!!!1 I’m also belatedly celebrating my 2-year anniversary with Xanga on April 11, 2006!!1

Wow, has it really been four years since I first put AnJa Entertainment on the Internets?! I honestly didn’t know until just a minute ago when I looked around the AnJa files and saw the above post. So much has happened since that fateful day. So much…

I get paid from Wal-Mart tomorrow so I’ll be able to put moAr money aside for my new computer. As I said before, I have $88 saved up thus far.

Oh, and as for my car stereo, I found out that the card that came with it that made installation “free” was a total jip. I’d have to pay $130 for the installation and I’d have to give them my credit card info so I couldn’t do it even if I wanted to since I don’t have a credit card. Lame!! Oh well, I’ll ask Ben if he wants to help me install my car stereo the next time he’s in town.

Well, I’m gonna fiddle with iTunes since I’ve finally decided to use my gift card. It’s been a fun and unexpected anniversary and I can’t wait until next time!!!!1 Laterz!
