Ken Otterbourg’s post about race, reporting, and why there’s no National White Theatre Festival in the U.S.

Thursday, August 13th, 2009

I used to work for the Winston-Salem Journal, and I still tune in every once in a while to the blog its managing editor Ken Otterbourg writes. Ken wrote about the newspaper’s coverage of the National Black Theatre Festival, and the feedback he gets from the town. He wrote this paragraph, which handles gracefully the […]

Adam’s built a bunch of different web products, most of which have been successful. Talk Derby to Me — a roller derby documentary flick my Denver-friend Tammy was in / helped produce goes up […]

Order of the Occult Hand

Friday, January 26th, 2007

The hand brushed past my radar in the newsroom in Winston-Salem, it was clever, and then I forgot about it. For some reason it struck my memory tonight. The Order of the Occult Hand has no president, board, or member roll. It’s existed for more than 40 years. I haven’t joined, and odds are against […]

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 […]

Denver, hey!

Tuesday, October 3rd, 2006

In three weeks I start a new job doing development for the Denver Post’s online news team. I’m excited. It’s my first programming gig, which means 1. I get to spend most of my time doing the stuff that interests me about online news, and 2. I have ascended to a new level of computer […]

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 […]

(no escort is required)

Saturday, August 12th, 2006

It’s ladies night at the race track tonight, and this is how the Bowman Gray track web site explains the concept: “At $1 Ladies’ Night events, female fans are admitted for $1 (no escort is required)”. That’s totally quaint. Tonight’s the last demolition derby of the season. If I get any good photos from it […]
