A skype chat I had with a coworker today

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012

It’s one of the more favorite of the skype chats I’ve had at work. The “Thunderdome” referenced is the Denver Post’s parent corporation newsroom — many of them are here in Denver for tomorrow’s Presidential Debate. me: In other, real news, Thunderdome people are here in the newsroom me: Met Ryan B., National Politics editor, […]

John Wenzel wrote a book about indie comedy.

Sunday, November 30th, 2008

John Wenzel wrote a book about indie comedy. It was published this month. I started reading the book this week, and I noticed that Mr. Wenzel likes to put funny or not-so-funny asides in the last sentence of paragraphs. Mr. Wenzel writes about music for The Denver Post. The book, Mock Stars: Indie Comedy and […]

DNC, Days 2 and 3: Anti-Vacation

Thursday, August 28th, 2008

Work is not vacation, but it’s not anti-vacation. When you’re around a group of people on vacation and you’re working, that’s, well, too bad. But when you’re around a big group of people having fun while you’re staring at a screen for double-digit hours on the day, watching them on their fancy vacation on that […]

DNC, Day 1: Bruiser

Monday, August 25th, 2008

Today started slow. Got in at 8:30 a.m., started patching up bits of the site I didn’t get to on the weekend. Kept on patching and building — adding stuff like the the most-commented politics articles in the past hour / three hours to the site, hacking the AP DNC live video stream so it […]

Pre-DNC, Days 4 and 5

Monday, August 25th, 2008

No more fail, just more work. Work Saturday. Work Sunday. Work-people Saturday night at the media party. Wake up Sunday and go to the Green Frontier Fest. Van Jones talks about making the green movement relevant to not just the folk who can afford to be fancy-green. Gosh if news organizations had someone as charismatic, […]

Pre-DNC, Day 3: Fail Parade

Saturday, August 23rd, 2008

I still subscribe to the dead-tree Denver Post. The delivery this summer has been consistently bad — a paper on the porch is now a thing of Spring 2008. This morning I left my place and found the paper not on the porch, the steps, or the sidewalk — it was in the grass on […]

Pre-DNC, Day 2: Cookies

Thursday, August 21st, 2008

At the start of the pep rally management told us “We’ve got McCain cookies and Obama cookies, but if you eat them you’ll have to take one of each [to maintain journalistic objectivity].” Yeah, there was a pep rally. And, yeah, there were cookies at that rally. I haven’t been to a pep rally since […]

I’m going to call this “Pre-DNC, Day 1”

Wednesday, August 20th, 2008

It’s gettin hectic in the day-job newsroom land. The DNC’s a few days away, and my to-do and get-this-done-right-now lists started exploding as of yesterday. Same goes for everyone, and it’s exciting. I got my Colorado Press Association press pass yesterday — the first press pass I’ve has since interning at the Kenosha News in […]

Hey, weekend: the Post’s Underground Music Showcase (translate: awesome local bands)

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

Last year I went to my first DPUMS (Denver Post Underground Music Showcase). Had a great time and saw tons of music I wouldn’t have otherwise seen. It’s a browser’s market — with so many venues so close together you can keep walking until you find something you like. Okay, sure, this may look like […]

Tetris League Denver makes the Denver Post

Monday, July 14th, 2008

This is how it happened: Three weeks ago I was coding away at work, and the Post’s features editor came by to check out the day’s Rocky. We were chatting, he asked how my girlfriend was, and I told him “We’re going to Tetris League tomorrow, it’s the only competitive tetris league in the country.” […]
