Disturbing the Peace

Today at work a memo went around about playing music:

--------
Subject: Music within cubicles

Please do not play music through your speakers within the cubicles. If you would like to listen to music, please be respectful of your neighbors and use headphones. Others may not have the same musical tastes as you or may not be able to concentrate with the music on. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
--------

Well, in our department we all listen to music a lot. Loud. So I felt compelled to respond with this snapshot of Mario:

elle_rigby said...

This blog is all sorts of hot, and your wit astounds me. It must be touching to be a "noticed" blog on blogger!

Oh, what does the "War and Terror" article have to do with playing music to loud in your cubicle? I'm confused.

Angry Veteran said...

Sancho,

Congrats on the "Blog of Note listing." Your writing is great. I loved your three essays on jury duty. I lived and worked in San Diego, so I enjoy those passages as well. One thing though, could you delete all the crazy george weinert v postings. They don't have anything to do with your blog and they really detract from the comments section.

I think you might like my rants as well. See me at: http://angryveteran.blogspot.com/

Keep it up!

great blog! very amusing fish posts :)

Scott the Shred maestro said...

Your intelligence and wit rival my own. Good job, a highly enjoyable read.

Mr. Malph said...

How did you get pictures up on your blog? Did you have to use "Hello"? ... And at first I thought y'all really had that many speakers in your cubicles...

Chris said...

Our office is having the same problem, except instead of speakers, every other cubicle has a portable heater because some people are complaining they are too cold because the air conditioning has been turned on. I personally think the guy with six heaters plugged into the power strip needs to see a doctor before he sets the place on fire.

Not all venomous will bite you....
But enough of them have been known to do so; therefore, I will remain guarded when in close proximity to them.

It's called discernment!

allison said...

I'm pretty sure this blog is for entertainment purposes only. Christian this Christian that....its everywhere. I can't seem to escape it. I talk about makeup on my blog so please don't post the anonymous bible verses on it. I really don't care and neither does anyone else! All I wanted to do yesterday was look at the funny pics of fish and comment on them. Unless you want to say hi, talk about makeup, clothes, boys or boobjobs please don't post.

vengeur said...

Mr. Malph -
Blogger doesn't host pictures themselves, unfortunately, so I have to host them on another site (I happen to use .mac from Apple).

Then it's just a matter of inserting the HTML code for an image. Check out Blogger's help section if you need ... help.

Office Space Junkie said...

Ahh, I believe you have my stapler... I was told i could play my music at a resonable volume. Give me back my stapler, thank you...

Very Nice. I'm new here (refugee from tBog) and most of the blogs I've run across so far suck ass. Yours is good, however. Keep up the good work.

Mario said...

Haha! I'm sure your manager would love this. The challenge would be to find the heaviest and most satanic Finnish or Norwegian black metal to play on those speakers. Or, maybe some Drum and Base from Armageddon(really... reeeealy hard core drum and base, for special audience only) would be apreciated.

Rosa said...

Quite witty, indeed. Enjoyed all the pics and comentary.
Are the fish still alive?

Rosa said...

P.S.
and YES, music IS life, you have to feel it to live it!

PipeTobacco said...

Hello!

I like the photographs.

Thank you for giving me (and others) interesting material to read. Reading blogs is a great joy and allows us to experience so much more than the traditional media/literature.

Hilarious, but your blog is a little loud. Could you turn it down? I'm a few cubicles down and I only listen to Chinese violin music. Thanks.

Hahaha Nice reply!

Cereal Jones said...

Wow! What kind of place is this? Where do you work, and can I get an application.

comraderedoctober said...

The name of this blog caught my eye because it is also the concept used by Castro and Che in Cuba during their Revolutionary time. I did like the music post with all that copy and paste photo magic; however, that is not what I thought about when reading. What I did think about is yesterdays USA Today's write up about people who have been fired or called to the carpet for their blogs either written on or off the job. So music is the least to worried about while companies rewrite blog policies into employee hand books. Blog and Rock on!

CloManX said...

That's awesome! Maybe that people who feel you play your music too loudly are just listening to you too closely.

Rob Boshaw said...

I get the feeling that those speakers probably go further than 11...

Congradulations to you and yours on becoming a blog on note. I hope someday that I can share the honour. In the meanwhile, I shall do the dance of anticipation.

little al said...

hey man,

How'd you get to be on the blogs of note? this is a huge question for me, because I'd like to make a hilarious post on the nature of the quest to becoming a "blog of note." Help me with my research if you can.

Hucar said...

I wanna say "ohaaaaaaa"

HadesGigas said...

My blog has all kinds of information on becoming a blog of note, as well as information on how you can get really kicking sound on your answering machine, as well as porn.

Overlord said...

Do you guys have hearing problems lol
Nice speakers hhehehhehehehe

I can't handle it anymore. These pictures just make me want to move to the Twin Cities, as frozen and as useless as they are. See also www.stockdiscussion.blogspot.com

Rock on, cubicle dudes...

I hate getting memos.

Fawn said...

So what's wrong with listening to music through headphones at work? The boss isn't telling you to shut it off, he's telling you that other people might not appreciate the same stuff you do. It's a productivity issue not a dictator thing. The dictator part would be if you decided to listen to it like you do without changing over to respect everyone else and then get yourself fired.

looks like you've got a fan club going on. :) pretty interesting blog you have. you caught my eye.

URBNsafari said...

Sorry, but I'm not scrolling to read sixty-six comments on this post. But, I don't know if it's been mentioned (or not) but the added speakers were totally Photoshopped.

Ruben said...

Good post! Your co-workers complain about a little music? My co-workers are actually getting caught having sex in conference rooms. A little loud music vs. love stains on the conference room table.

pmusu said...

Good blog, since your post is about music,

i would like to point out that there is a blog about Maltese music

HadesGigas said...

Oh yeah, well my co-workers run cockfights during meetings, and dice games during teleconferences, and we have vandalism fridays, as well as defecation thursdays and copulation mondays.

I work for google

Jaxe said...

That is awesome, I've got to get that setup! RAWK ON!! ! !

Anonymous said...

Uh, your crotch. How do I say this? Were you excited by the music?

Chitney said...

HA! I was browsing sites on dashboard and came across your page. Your music memo entry is f'n awesome. Mario's pose and the massive ghetto fab speakers--LOVE IT.

Cherryaa said...

Was it all that sound that got you interested, or do you just like having your photo taken?
Click. Heh ;)

wit said...

I have the opposite problem at work...they sent out that turn down your speakers memo and now everyone is wearing headphones! So in order to get people's attention, I toss my un-headphoned radio at them and scream "FIRE" and run out of the building

R2K said...

: ) Really great page.

Would it be ok if I linked to your site from mine?

The Jeff said...

As long as your very real speakers are blaring something universal, like Finnish Polka, I think any supervisor would be proud.
ps I think Allison wants to "get into your pants"

Excellent website. Good work. Very useful. I will bookmark!
