Black Friday is here!

Nov 21, 2018

Episode 2 has arrived.

I know, it took me FOREVER to get this out. As you will find out between the impending holidays and being sick (lost my voice) putting podcasts together has just been last on the list. Luckily I have now worked out my workflow to a point where I can get the show out fairly quickly as a one man show so expect much more in the coming days and weeks.

The topic for today? Black Friday aka the giant garbage sale you don’t need but somehow want.

Everybody and welcome to UNHINGED with me Steve Lichtman so this is I guess what would be Episode Two since I did do an intro a couple of weeks ago. And you know, so haven’t been around lately it’s been a kind of a mix of a bunch of things. One I’ve been I’ve been volunteering at my daughter’s school. So I may add my class parent / class mom to my resume for friends that want to fuck with me and make jokes which is quite a right I love every one of them. It is whatever it is, at least I’m there because if it wasn’t me, for those that know me and knno my existence, it would be a situation that not everybody would have been pleased with. So myself and my wife, Kimberly volunteer to help make sure things went smooth this year.

0:45
So it’s been busy. I’ve also been sick since the last the last podcast for the intro I lost my voice which if you lose your voice, it makes things really difficult and especially what work not having my voice was a bit of a problem them I’ve kind of been delayed I’ve been playing a lot of catch up kind of book a lot of phone calls and and just kind of keep things moving forward. Now that I’ve got my voice back at least to some degree. So this will probably keep it pretty short today 510 minutes just as a little pick me up and just for the point of getting things moving and just not it’s something I say at work all the time. 

1:16
And I know I told you guys I wouldn’t talk about work and I’m not gonna never going to tell you where I work at what I do. But it’s about taking action and it’s it’s something that I coach you CEO level people on and high level executives on every day about taking action, making a plan and going ahead with it and just doing it not procrastinating. Not giving yourself 100 to one excuses why because saying fuck it man and doing it. And as crazy as it sounds. I have delivered it in exactly those exact words to people of pretty esteemed value in the in the business world of Australia who who know me very well for my my open candor and my no bullshit approach of how I handle people and how I deal with people. You know, if you want to be coddled, I’m absolutely the wrong dude to ever speak to in any kind of business for it. Because I’m very real.

2:15
And this is what it is. It’s just the way I like to keep things. So yeah, you know, I haven’t been around man, Jesus, it’s, it’s just so tough. When you can’t talk and you want to make a podcast, actually two podcasts, I’ve got a you know, after the left of the first one, I kind of made a decision, I’ve been teetering on the balance of whether or not I was gonna be doing a second show. And the other show is the one ad of this. So all this is the fun that the, the crazy or the fucked up things that happened in my life. The other show is going to be absolutely business. And I’ll never talk about it here. Other than the fact that I’m, you know, burning the candle at both ends, if you will, while trying to get this all set up and get my own personal machine moving forward. I like like I’ve told all my clients are right that I tell them, they get to shit or get off the pot and to take massive action. 

3:05
And then here, I am not taking my own massive action just working with these people on a regular basis, which is nice. But at the end of the day, it doesn’t have my name stamped on it. And you know, there’s a point in all of our lives, we’ve got to decide, are we going to do something about our own our own selves, and our own personal branding and unhinged is a large part of it. Because the comedic holy shit side of my life is, I believe, entertaining. And I kind of think that people just like hearing my view on things. So I’ve been told now of course, we all have our own egos, and minus through the roof like anybody else’s should be about what we do, and how we deliver it. So yeah, that’s that, you know, that’s kind of where I’ve been, and what’s been going on for the last little while now. 

3:54
Let’s talk about something that is near and dear, Well, not really, to my heart, your heart and everybody else’s heart. And that would be it’s Thanksgiving week, aka Black Friday. The holidays of the soulless shopper. Now I was in target this morning. It’s I’m recording this at 950 in the morning. You know, after going to sleep at three from work and getting up and getting the kids to school and the whole nine. So I’m a target, Target, target j, whatever the fuck you want to call it at 845 just about an hour ago. 

4:21
I’m standing in there picking up some Legos for my daughter. Because you know, we celebrate Hanukkah, and it’s the first week of December. So I don’t have time to wait for empty shelves. I would rather spend 10% more and you get what I wanted and not have to wait on line I was out in eight minutes, you really can’t beat that, you know. So eight minutes in and out of the store at 845 in the morning. That is my kind of speed of shopping and I’m glad to pay a premium for it. Now that you’ve got the other side as I’m walking through the aisles of this place I am just the number one Toys R Us is out of business. And as we know with that gone that leaves a lot of money on the table for these businesses. So target Walmart you know lots of places even five below with my wife’s on the mailing list for sent an email about all these amazing you know, more than $5 value gifts that they’re going to be selling for five or below on Black Friday to get you in there. And it really is just a glorified dollar store for kids. I mean, it’s cool, my daughter find stuff that she likes. It’s like last year things if you want to, like get more figures or whatever garbage it is, but at the end of the day, it’s still just a glorified kids dollar store.

5:30
So I’m walking through target back to target. I’m walking through the aisles. I get my Legos easy. I’m in and out two minutes.

5:37
But while I’m walking up and down the aisles. I’m seeing like, you know, the typical Black Friday things like TV’s on top of TV’s on top of TV’s how many fucking TV some people need. I mean, really, are you going to put a TV on top of your TV next year TV so you could watch it like you’re in a bar because if that’s the case, go to a bar and watch many screens. You don’t need all that shit in your life. And we’re all guilty. Listen, I have a TV here in my office. I’m watching Sunday Night Football and whatever, you know, while I’m working at night, and I’ve got the TV with the games on the background. Sure. But I work from home and I need to entertain myself so I don’t have people to talk to in an office. You know, like a lot of people would have at times so in that sense, it’s it’s kind of a a comfort for me and that doesn’t mean that I’m justifying it for myself. I’m certainly not but I’m also not going to stand online on Thursday night at midnight or Friday morning at 5am to purchase a you know 45 inch TV for you know, $11 off or whatever the discount is from a brand of TV I never would have picked if I was to buy it on my own because that’s what it was. I mean I didn’t see any Sony’s or you know Panasonic’s or Samsung’s or even like the Roku enabled TCLs, which I like. I mean, that’s what I’ve got my office I dig it, it’s Roku built in, I got no extra boxes. It just hangs on the fucking wall. And its glorious I could watch myself sports. It’s everything I ever needed. 

7:05
But you know, the cha cha TV brand, or whoever the hell it is where they’re making these things for $11 and selling them for $300 and then putting them on sale for $200. They’re still making bank off your ass and you’re buying some bottom grade TV thinking you’re getting some fucking amazing deal. And then next year when it’s dead, you’re going to be buying another one. Think about it. Quality is totally dropped in the types of electronics that we buy. We become a consumer nation of disposable electronics. You know, our landfills are piled high. People have the county I live in here in New York, they have a habit actually have days throughout the year where you can come and dump off your electronics so it can be properly recycled. There’s that much of it going on. Now. You in the old days, you’re answering machine broken this thread in the garbage and move down your fucking life. Now you’ve got a garage full of shit, that you want to go bring somewhere and deliver and recycled and repurposed and upscaled and will up cycled and up your ass with it. Man, it’s just too much so you know that the hordes of zombies shoppers on Black Friday, I will absolutely not be a part of, you’re not going to have to see me shopping anywhere. I won’t be standing there with a selfie stick. Taking pictures of these herds of idiots. I will just absolutely have nothing to do with it. It’s not worth saving 20 bucks to me to go stand in a line of fucking animals. 

8:31
Because that’s what the people are that do this shit are, animals. They just want to, you know, I get it. You want to stretch your dollar. You know, we live in a society that wants to bleed you dry. So every dollar counts. And you want to you want to stretch your value as best as you can. But you have to think about it if they’re willing to hock this stuff. It’s such a cheap price. 

8:49
How good is it? What’s the quality? Is it going to last? Is it just another piece of shit that you just going to spend your money on and be like, Man, you know, now now I’ve got this blah blah blah item and, and, you know, we just got to do whatever with a shovel my ass. I really don’t fucking know. I mean, the amount of things that they were selling. They were selling DVDs. I mean, I don’t know about you, but who the fuck buys DVDs anymore. I haven’t bought a DVD in a decade. You by streaming I go to Voodoo. Or I go to the go to Verizon from the TV provider and two clicks that I watch a movie not going to go walking the Best Buy and stand on line for three hours so I can get you know, you know, Will Ferrell and elf for $1. 99 less than what it’s normally advertised for me. 

9:31
Get the fuck out of here. We’re going to do sit there and stare at the DVDs and and hold the case you’ll hold the toolbox of my handle. Oh, look at this DVD has liner notes. Fuck that, man. That’s insane. Why would I possibly waste my time doing that?

9:50
But you know. Hey man, Black Friday. That’s what it is. Right? It’s just man. Whole Jesus Christ. I mean, it’s gonna be so crazy. Everybody’s going to be posting online.

10:00
I got a T shirt for $1 less. I got a coat for $5. I got kind of pair of pants for 399. Look, my balls are hanging out of the delicious It’s just man.

10:13
It’s so cringe worthy to me. I just don’t get it. I’ll probably never get it and just not going to be a part of it. And not be shopping in it. You know, Cyber Monday, you’re more prone to find me being a part of it. Even then. Certainly not going to wait on a digital line was the only thing worse than actually standing online with other strangers is sitting at a computer or a desk or holding a phone and staring at it like a zombie waiting for a countdown to happen. That’s just not my cards for me either. So maybe I’m just a bad shopper. Really. At the end of the day. It’s probably just said I’m a lousy shopper. 

10:48
I just don’t want to be a part of it. And I tried to do these things as quick as possible. The same way the supermarket and when i when i go my wife and kids at the supermarket and it could take an hour easily easily take an hour I could feel the same shopping cart by myself on like a Tuesday or Wednesday morning at the same 830 8:45am after dropping the kids off. I can be done in about 15 minutes already driving back to the house because I just don’t want to be there. I will run through the street that the streets but I’ll run through the aisles of the supermarket. Like I’m not old TV show Supermarket Sweep where they they ran up and down the aisles and filter cock the best they could. And that to me is the way to shop supermarket just blaze through this last place in life. I want to spend my time I would rather spend my time standing on a street corner just staring at people at red lights and just making stupid fucking faces at them. And seeing how I can get the laugh then stay in the supermarket for more than 10 minutes. It’s just murder.

11:46
It’s murder to your soul. But yeah, you know so that’s that’s what I’m that’s what I’ve got going on right now. It’s you know, it’s the holiday season it’s Thanksgiving are going to give thanks by shopping and buying a lot of stuff part is I don’t see people talking about having their families over. I don’t see people and some do. Don’t get me wrong. Some people will listen to this and be like, Hey, Steve, you’re such a dick. 

12:09
Man. You know, my family comes over. And I don’t have 40 strong that come over every Thanksgiving. I do have friends that are like that. No doubt, you know, it’s there. Absolutely. People like that. But they’re also not the kind of people that are going online telling the whole world every two minutes their life story. So the ones that are are the ones that are posting about their sick deals, and they’re they’re hot buys and all this bullshit. So I will probably check out of the digital world after tomorrow. Today I’m going to my daughter’s school. They’ve got a Thanksgiving little mini feast that’s going to go on in the afternoon. I am going to be the photographer. But we’re also bringing a lot of snow supplies. Once again, as that class parent know the duties come in. So I’ve got to go heat up some mashed potatoes later that uh. The wife made some giant trays of it. And these corn husks with popcorn inside it looks like something right off a Pinterest it’s pretty good credible, not something I ever would have done. But you know the the wife and child they woke up early Sunday morning. And they assembled this for the class for today. So it’s super cool. And I’ll bring everything down help the lady set everything up and then just go into photography mode. I’m gonna have to remember to charge my camera now because I’ve got a few hours and it only takes about an hour to get the battery full and get all the pictures off the other card and yeah, get myself ready it only takes a few minutes. Not a big deal. And then I’ll go down there and enjoy. 

13:22
You know when I think about Thanksgiving and kids celebrations. 

13:29
I don’t know about you. But I think about a Wednesday Addams from Addams Family when she’s at that camp and they do the recreation and then it just all goes to hell. And then you know, there’s a takeover and a bloodbath. And yeah, that’s the kind of thanksgiving celebration that would make me laugh doesn’t necessarily mean that’s ever going to happen out of school. I’d be amazed if my daughter school would allow somebody like me to create such a chaotic event for the kids. But you know, of course they won’t. But that’s what I think of when I’m at these things. I’ll be smiling, having a good time playing with the kids taking pictures doing the nice thing make it a nice day for people but in my back of my mind, I’m going to be thinking about The Addams Family you know so if you see me today while you won’t know because you went here this until after today because I’ve still got to edit it and get it online. But yeah I’m thinking of Addams Family the entire time I’m there that’s just me you know we have a sense of humor you look at things a little bit differently really don’t have anything else today there’s really not much going on I just wanted to jump online know per se grabbed by Mike spit some hot fire into it right now. Just to say hello to everybody and let you know what I thought about Black Friday in the fucking train wreck. That is that’s all man as a rock. That’s all folks. 

15:00
I’ve got nothing else don’t forget, check out the website and unhinge pod calm you can see my blog where I have not written in two weeks but I do right there for the most part of you know since we’ve started this little process I’ve posted about a dozen or so post maybe give or take so it is something I’m getting more regular into with the time I’ve been down lately it’s kind of taking a bit of chunk of my energy out so I haven’t been writing but I’m getting back into it and you’re going to see more of these podcasts on a much much more regular basis it’s just been the holiday season is murder just want to get through this holiday season and get my new process and flow going so yeah, you know on hinge pod comm check it out. You can follow me online if you want to see just podcast information you like Twitter or the Facebook and look for on his pod and you’ll find them there. But if you want to follow me see what I’m up to and what I’m doing. In general, I post a lot more on the personal accounts. 

15:38
And that would simply be I am Lichtman, Lichtman. So I’m at @iamlichtman on Twitter I’m at @iamlichtman on Instagram. And that’s where I would spend the majority of my time. I’ve also got a Unhinged with Steve Lichtman page on Facebook. Alright guys signing off as my my buddy Ryan says love and lizards.

Episode 2 has arrived.

I know, it took me FOREVER to get this out. As you will find out between the impending holidays and being sick (lost my voice) putting podcasts together has just been last on the list.

Like I’m not old TV show Supermarket Sweep where they they ran up and down the aisles and filter cock the best they could. And that to me is the way to shop supermarket just blaze through this last place in life. I want to spend my time I would rather spend my time standing on a street corner just staring at people at red lights and just making stupid fucking faces at them. And seeing how I can get the laugh then stay in the supermarket for more than 10 minutes. It’s just murder.

11:46
It’s murder to your soul. But yeah, you know so that’s that’s what I’m that’s what I’ve got going on right now. It’s you know, it’s the holiday season it’s Thanksgiving are going to give thanks by shopping and buying a lot of stuff part is I don’t see people talking about having their families over. I don’t see people and some do. Don’t get me wrong. Some people will listen to this and be like, Hey, Steve, you’re such a dick. 

12:09
Man. You know, my family comes over. And I don’t have 40 strong that come over every Thanksgiving. I do have friends that are like that. No doubt, you know, it’s there. Absolutely. People like that. But they’re also not the kind of people that are going online telling the whole world every two minutes their life story. So the ones that are are the ones that are posting about their sick deals, and they’re they’re hot buys and all this bullshit. So I will probably check out of the digital world after tomorrow. Today I’m going to my daughter’s school. They’ve got a Thanksgiving little mini feast that’s going to go on in the afternoon. I am going to be the photographer. But we’re also bringing a lot of snow supplies. Once again, as that class parent know the duties come in. So I’ve got to go heat up some mashed potatoes later that uh. The wife made some giant trays of it. And these corn husks with popcorn inside it looks like something right off a Pinterest it’s pretty good credible, not something I ever would have done. But you know the the wife and child they woke up early Sunday morning. And they assembled this for the class for today. So it’s super cool. And I’ll bring everything down help the lady set everything up and then just go into photography mode. I’m gonna have to remember to charge my camera now because I’ve got a few hours and it only takes about an hour to get the battery full and get all the pictures off the other card and yeah, get myself ready it only takes a few minutes. Not a big deal. And then I’ll go down there and enjoy.

You know when I think about Thanksgiving and kids celebrations. 

13:29
I don’t know about you. But I think about a Wednesday Addams from Addams Family when she’s at that camp and they do the recreation and then it just all goes to hell. And then you know, there’s a takeover and a bloodbath. And yeah, that’s the kind of thanksgiving celebration that would make me laugh doesn’t necessarily mean that’s ever going to happen out of school. I’d be amazed if my daughter school would allow somebody like me to create such a chaotic event for the kids. But you know, of course they won’t. But that’s what I think of when I’m at these things. I’ll be smiling, having a good time playing with the kids taking pictures doing the nice thing make it a nice day for people but in my back of my mind, I’m going to be thinking about The Addams Family you know so if you see me today while you won’t know because you went here this until after today because I’ve still got to edit it and get it online. But yeah I’m thinking of Addams Family the entire time I’m there that’s just me you know we have a sense of humor you look at things a little bit differently really don’t have anything else today there’s really not much going on I just wanted to jump online know per se grabbed by Mike spit some hot fire into it right now. Just to say hello to everybody and let you know what I thought about Black Friday in the fucking train wreck. That is that’s all man as a rock. That’s all folks.
