Ner's Random Musings on a life of interesting insights

a world of interesting factoids about nothing and everything

Today hasn't been teh greatest of days.

I never give up never, but I'm close to it in Statics. I've done this stuff before but actually doing it on a test or homework is a different story. Transferring the "do this" "do that" to actually doing something will be different. I had planned on writing a more fervent email but I'm too tired and too emotionally drained to do that tonight.

Lab was another bad thing. ITs not bad or boring, but its just long, tedious, and for the most part, very annoying. Iona's doing great, though its been a long time since she's done lab. I had to help her through with some basic things and once that was done, we were off to the races. It lasted the whole 4 hours so needless to say when I got back here after eight hours away at campus, the beer Chris offered me upon my return was much welcomed.

I got back here to find an email from the ACB Radio program director. He in a nutshell said that there had been complaints about my show, not formal complaints, just some complaints and that I'd have to send a log to the ftp site. The message was very formal and anal, typical of what they've been like lately. I'm getting to where I don't want to work for a radio station if they're going to treat me like I have to be totally straight laced and boring during my show. I want to be myself, bring my music to the world, and enjoy it all the same time. I hate being yelled at, hate being doubted when I try so hard as it is. It hurts me taht someone would be offended by content in my show especially when most of my songs don't have words to them. Why is it that we always hear from those who complain and never get, especially from the leaders of a group, positive comments about individual things we do? Very od.I've

I've calmed down plenty from these flash points of my day but I sure could ahve not used them. I'm ready for the day to end though so I suppose I'll climb into my nice warm bed with my nice warm dog and go to sleep so I can be ready to take on yet another day tomorrow morning. Lucky I don't have as many classes. I hope to write more of a detailed entry tomorrow but tonight is not a day in which I can be overly detailed, I'm too warn out. More later.

Just let him know about the bagpipe music you feature on your show. That will shut him up.

One of the archives I had to send in actually was the show where I played all the bagpipe music, I wonder if that was the problem. Arg, oh well, I'm doing my show tonight whether they like it or not.

Dude, your show rocks. I never get much of a chance to write, but I really think you do a great job. That's just it, you are yourself and as far as I can tell, you're not breaking *any* of the rules. The thing is these people who are complaining are just so used to the cookie cutter, safe, bland, boring, corporate bullshit radio that's out there, so when they hear something that's actually real and fun, their minds go into overload moad. You have fans and people out there who are listening and enjoying your show, Raptured Raynbo for one, that's a friend of mine who found your show and i encouraged her to write to you and she did. Now she's a fan and she won't ever miss your show again. I'm sure that after listening to it, they won't have anything to say about it and they'll just tell these people, we found absolutely nothing objectionable about Ner's show. If I was the one doing it I would say hey, plenty of choices out there. If you don't like the show then don't fucking listen. You know how to stop your player and nobody's holding a fucking gun to your head. Not the most professional or friendly response but it certainly gets the point across. Hang in there man, you are definitely appreciated. Keep doing what you do. If these people don't like it they can find a safer show to listen to. Fuck 'em.

The thing is, I wrote Geoff Shang about what I did and how I thought it was a bit wrong not to tell me what I was being acused of. And he's written to lists etc. several times after I sent this mesage. I have heard nothing from him. Hell if they don't like it, I'll do it on my own server in vorbis or on a supercast and I'm sure I'll find some people that will listen. Raptured Rainbow loves it and if I can find at least one person that listens, then so be it. I'll ahve to get you the archive from last night. It was a collection of us having fun. If I were listening to that show I think I would have loved to hear all the itneraction. Who knows, I'll have to post what Geoff says. Thanks for your words of encouragement, glad you're on board man :).
