A few years ago i got hired at a big company, let’s call it company X. Up until then i had only been a research scientist working in microbiology but i needed more money so i took the job as a technical sales rep. I was hired to do sales and technical support for scientific research reagents. Thing is i was hired to do sales for government and governmental institutions. The job was ok, i interacted with a lot of the country’s leading scientists and built a reasonable network and some cool friendships. The county had been in crisis for a long time and getting worse every year, and my sales were becoming more difficult because the government wasn’t providing public universities for adequate (or any) money allocations to keep science programs and faculties stocked, and as the economy crumbled further, the government’s institutional labs from various sectors also started having serious problems and almost everybody switched to Indian or Chinese chemicals which were a lot cheaper than mine.
As the months passed, i was only able to get a few big contracts and sales (even though i managed to pull a few feats that got me commended as no other sales reps had been able to do what i pulled off). And yet I got yelled at a lot for not meeting my objectives. My manager was a complete tool 100% of the time.
It’s not a substitute for her sense of humour and lovely character and determination, but I archived her quote collection here back in august. I haven’t updated it since and the tagging will forever remain incomplete, but if you’re looking for receipts/ quotes, you might find them here at @scqc
I’m not really trying to drum up attention for this blog or anything but since the reason I made it in the first place was skully requesting someone to back it up for the event of her deleting her blog, here you go.
Jay Z, photographed while filming the performance art piece for his track “Picasso Baby” at the PACE Gallery in New York City by Brian Finke on July 10, 2013. The 11-minute film would premiere on HBO on August 2, 2013. It was nominated for a Grammy Award for “Best Music Video,” but lost to Jay and Justin Timberlake’s collaboration “Suit & Tie.”
Directed by Mark Romanek, the film was inspired by the work of performance artist Marina Abramović—in particular her 2010 installation “The Artist Is Present.” Jay performed the track for six hours, with breaks only for hydration and crowd changes. The crowd—which was intended to display a cross-section of the New York art and cultural worlds—formed a circle around Jay, watching him move within the room, interacting with audience members or those lucky enough to earn a seat on the wooden bench set in the middle.
Attendees at the filming included Pablo Picasso’s granddaughter and art historian Diana Widmaier Picasso,
Abramović herself, performance art champion
Roselee Goldberg, artists George Condo, Lawrence Weiner, Fred Wilson,
Andres Serrano, Marcel Dzama,
and Marilyn Minter, art
critic Jerry Saltz, fashion designer Jenna Lyons, art power couple gallerist Bill Powers and fashion designer Cynthia Rowley, hip hop legend Fab 5 Freddy, director and producer Judd Apaptow,
Taraji P. Henson, Michael K. Williams, Rosie Perez, Alan Cumming and Adam Driver, dancer Storyboard P, rapper Wale, and many other representatives from galleries and the sales side of fine art.
“I had no idea what I was going to do,” Abramović said afterward. “I just came here and felt the energy. I love his music, because it’s social issues, it’s political, and really goes to everybody’s heart. It’s so good. It’s like a volcano.” She would later accuse Hov of using her for the piece, upset that her institute hadn’t received a donation from him. The film’s producer Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn came forward and advised that Abramović’s claims were unfounded, quoting a receipt from the substantial donation Jay Z had indeed made to the Marina Abramović Institute. The artist and the institute then released an official apology to Jay Z, saying they were misinformed and would be taking appropriate actions to reconcile the matter.

If I should err with respect to my sentiments of what are here called Hamilton’s appointments I hope you will not impute it to any wrong motive. He has become the Universal Recommendator. Many of the appointments made as I have reason to believe at his request are spoken of as extremely improper. I could mention many. Danberry for instance as first Leutt of the Navy when there is not a single Merchant who would trust him with the Command of a Sloop of Twenty tons.
Nay he [Hamilton] even went so far as to say at his own Table when I was present; that he had, in his own words “Been that day appointing a Son of the Notorious Bill Livingston’s a Midshipman in our Navy.” This modest speech was addressed to [Philip] Church whose reply was you have then I find weaknesses not confined to the female sex: which produced a laugh and perhaps was not thought of by any person but myself afterwards.
Charles Adams to John Adams, January 31, 1799
For all of you who sent an ask for the receipt about that quote, here you go. And since Charles was about the only member of the Adams Family that didn’t loathe the air Hamilton breathed, I’m more likely to give this anecdote credibility than if it had come from John or Abigail.
I want a life that sizzles and pops and makes me laugh out loud. And I don’t want to get to the end, or to tomorrow, even, and realize that my life is a collection of meetings and pop cans and errands and receipts and dirty dishes. I want to eat cold tangerines, and sing out loud in the car with the windows open, and wear pink shoes, and stay up all night laughing, and paint my walls the exact color of the sky right now. I want to sleep hard on clean white sheets, and throw parties, and eat ripe tomatoes, and read books so good they make me jump up and down.
