My two TV News class projects so far… from December’s end-of-semester show: and from my class’s February 6th show:

don't know much about history…

Courtesy my mother, courtesy the LSU Daily Reveille: She explained that it’s an ad from some condominium developer who was recently un-invited to be an LSU sponsor due to some feather-ruffling ads the developer placed. (More details, anyone? I couldn’t find anything online.) I cannot attest to the historical accuracy of previous ads.

Right, so: Went to Chicago to finish editing a video of the Adobe onAIR bus tour, a.k.a. Geeks On A Bus, which played at the end of the day 2 keynote at Adobe’s MAX conference. It was entertaining to see something I’d worked on on giant screens in front of thousands of people, even if […]

It only took about a year of grumbling over my design, longer of Bryan grumbling over my rotting-from-the-inside blogging software, and finally a really good reason to have working comments… It’s still non-functioning and/or non-finished in several places, but I’ve found that I’m more and more ok with “good enough” these days ; )

I’ve posted my first entry over at Earth & Sky, which was kind enough to invite me to blog with them.

At the joint bachelor/ette party, playing with the remote-controlled helicopter Bryan won earlier in the day at Dave & Buster’s: The bridesmaids’ brunch: […]

Jesus + the South = fertile ground for films

I know I’m, oh, two or three years behind on this, but I just got a Netflix subscription. I think I’ve finally found a rival for my internet addiction: a steady stream of movies delivered to my front door. The first dozen or so movies I’ve put in my queue are all documentaries. There have […]

Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., 1922-2007

A fond farewell to the man who, if not the spiritual father, was the spiritual crazy uncle of my blogging efforts. If I could believe that anyone would wake up after death in faraway worlds peopled with strange yet highly literate aliens, I’d believe it of him. I hope he enjoys himself there, because he […]
