80s McFashions

McDonald’s came up with a lot of amazing stuff in the 80s, from McNugget Noir to Jason Alexander’s McDLT enthusiasm, but this new find really takes the cake..er… burger.

McFashion. Apparently, in the 1988, the McDonald’s employee catalogue was filled with “The Smile Makers”, which was, from what we can tell, “employees” wearing McDonald’s brand clothing with such joy and excitement, you’d think they were high as kites.

United Airlines Sucks

I’ve hated United ever since they screwed me over in November of ’08. I would write all about the ordeal but Dave Carroll has made an incredible song that pretty much cleverly sums up how much United Airlines sucks.

In the spring of 2008, Sons of Maxwell were traveling to Nebraska for a one-week tour and my Taylor guitar was witnessed being thrown by United Airlines baggage handlers in Chicago. I discovered later that the $3500 guitar was severely damaged. They didn’t deny the experience occurred but for nine months the various people I communicated with put the responsibility for dealing with the damage on everyone other than themselves and finally said they would do nothing to compensate me for my loss. So I promised the last person to finally say “no” to compensation (Ms. Irlweg) that I would write and produce three songs about my experience with United Airlines and make videos for each to be viewed online by anyone in the world. United: Song 1 is the first of those songs. United: Song 2 has been written and video production is underway. United: Song 3 is coming. I promise.
