Adam’s new college and pro-sports aggregator site: Sportsify

Saturday, September 27th, 2008

The most successful web geek I’ve known personally, Adam Howell, launched another site. It’s his first Django-powered site, and which for no legitimate reason makes me feel a little proud inside (when we worked together at the Winston-Salem Journal, Adam started down the Ruby on Rails path at about the same time I started down […]

He’s got six big ideas

Monday, April 23rd, 2007

This month is poetry month (among other things that are being celebrated all month long I’m sure). This month I found a book of Robert Bly’s poetry. I found Robert Bly through this fascinating lit mag from North Carolina called The Sun, which came to me via Sarah. So yeah, I found the book, which […]

Blue Ridge Country and the ask/receive gambit

Monday, November 27th, 2006

Heck, it was only two months ago when I wrote about how I wished Blue Ridge Country 98.1 FM had live streaming of their stuff. And now they do. Sweet. This is particularly handy now that I’m not living in North Carolina. I recommend tuning in Friday nights between 6 and 10 p.m., East Coast […]

Made it.

Tuesday, October 24th, 2006

I’ve got a new zip code (80204), a new extension at my office number (1057), and a new skyline. In the past 16 days I travelled 6880 miles (more than half done in my hardy Honda Civic hatchback). This incuded a wedding, a visit with my dad’s side of the family (four separate visits), two […]

Stuff That Makes My Life Better: 98.1 FM, Blue Ridge Country radio

Wednesday, September 13th, 2006

I don’t know how many non-corporate music-radio stations are left (besides college radio). I do know I never liked country as much as I do now that I know 98.1 FM. It broadcasts out of Galax, Virginia, right over the state line. In the evenings, from 6 to 10 p.m., they have this “Blue Ridge […]

Been a while since I rapped at ya’,

Wednesday, August 9th, 2006

So, here are the things going on in my world … today somebody told me about newspaper man Dean Singleton, who has a controversial history in the industry, there’s what seems to be a good article about him at CJR. I got 13 rolls of photos back from the photo lab today, there’s one roll […]

What do you say when a police officer in a crowded Mexican restaurant comes up to you and says “I’m glad to see other Anglos here”?

Sunday, July 10th, 2005

Looking back on it, the best replies would have been: “What the fuck?” or “What’s your badge number?” … ha, but in the moment all I mustered was “There’s a lot of people in this world.” … whatever sense that made. Funny thing was, we got our food to go, and were pretty hungry so […]
