I'm a producer!

So yesterday, being the news nerd that I am, I decided to call the tv station i used to work at and see if they needed any help. Tamara (anchor/producer) said "want to come produce? Dave Markel usually does it, but he's gone."

I was like "Whoa. Sweet"

So i went and produced. I think i did more of an AP's job, but still it was fun to be invloved again.

I wrote a couple stories, they're on kcsg.com

One about BBB scams, another about pres. hinckley, and I ran the show!

Anywho, it turned out good, so i was glad. I'm going to go eat and shower, and the sort. I'll talk to YOU later!

this just in... something whacky sold on ebay!!!!

So... as an aspiring journalist (or future, either way) I watch a lot of news. I see a lot of copycatting, and even more of stereotyped stories. Latley one particular stereotype has been getting on my nerves.


This story was great.... IN 1998 when ebay first launched, but now its kind of played. Lets try to name all the crazy ebay stories we can think off the top of our heads... shall we? (keep in mind I was out of the pop culture world from November to July)

Justin Timberlake's Toast
Human Soul
Various Organs
Kid's Christmas Presents
now... Elvis Water.

Elvis water (its not pee...) is some water that the king allegedly touched.

I know, i'll go to vegas and look at some of the same casinos the king looked at. Whoopty doo. Maybe if I made out with the king, i'd have immortality. I guess thats what the 3 lucky ebayers who paid $450 are hoping.


By the way...
Weber State News 0wnz.

We swept the reigon, not that its that great, but we still swept it.

Not that there's anything wrong with that....

So tonight i was watching one of my favorite TV shows, Seinfeld, and I realized something...

I'm a huge wuss when it comes to dramatic irony.

Its the "not that there's anything wrong with that" episode. Jerry's waiting for an interview with a student journalist at the coffee shop. She doesn't show up. Elaine then notices someone evesdropping on their conversation, so George and Elaine maintain that Jerry and George are gay. Of course, its the student journalist. She interviews jerry at his home... and thats when i changed the channel.

I really really hate these types of dramatic irony. Thats maybe why I can't watch certain TV shows, or why I can never watch those stupid scary movies, where you know whats coming next.

It makes my stomach turn.

a blog test that was right on

Your Dominant Intelligence is Linguistic Intelligence

You are excellent with words and language. You explain yourself well.
An elegant speaker, you can converse well with anyone on the fly.
You are also good at remembering information and convicing someone of your point of view.
A master of creative phrasing and unique words, you enjoy expanding your vocabulary.

You would make a fantastic poet, journalist, writer, teacher, lawyer, politician, or translator.

HOLY CRAp. An intelligence test that actually got me right for once.

How companies get friends to spam friends.

So recently, I was worrying about money (as usual) when I came across a novel idea.

Columbia house.

I'm broke, and i need to buy christmas presents. Everyone appreciates a good DVD, so i'll join columbia house.

I came across one of those free ipod sites, and it said you only needed to complete one offer. GREAT!!! Columbia house was an offer.

I completed it, but then found out you have to refer 5 of your friends and they have to complete offers as well.

SO.... if you need to get one of the following things, please get it through this link so that i'll get an iPod.


Blockbuster Online(like netflix from blockbuster)
Citi® Platinum Select® Card for College Students
BMG Music Service(music service)
Columbia House DVD(the one I did.)
Video Professor(computer lessons)
GM Card(credit card)
Trimlife Trio(weight loss)
eFax Plus(Fax service)
Dream Shape(weight loss)
The Wall Street Journal
MyInks(ink refils)
Audible.com(audio books)
Nexiderm(anti wrinkle cream)
Citi Platinum Select Card
PeoplePC(ISP for 6 bucks a month)

I got 5 dvds for 13 bucks or something. I was planning on giving my brother the LOTR trilogy. I figured that he hates it though. I'm either going to send the package back unopened, or i'm going to take the DVDs back to wal-mart and buy his christmas present with the money. PS if you're brother, or relative of brother, let me know what he (you) would like for christmas.

I cant sleep. I've been in bad moods lately. Finals are almost over. I'm going to bed.

Palm... where did you go?!

Hey, if you find my palm, you win.

Its a zire 71 with a nice leather case, and a wifi card.

It has a lot of personal value to me.

If you find a zire 71, to make sure its mine, the camera doesnt work.

Please.............. FIND IT!

Its been gone for 3 weeks. I've been looking everywhere, so find it!

To my single serving friends from blog explosion:

welcome, thanks for staying the obligitory 30 seconds. Click my banner if you want to give me cash. Enjoy the show.

Yeah, so i'm pretty sucky at updating my blog recently, mainly because my life has become pretty sucky.

I might be dying..... ok, that was just a shock value attempt at getting your attention.

Actually, i'm finishing up 2 senior level projects that are sooooo friggin crappy. I did a study on what college students think of TV news. If you're in college, and reading this blog, feel free to sound off in the comments section.

2nd-- advertising campaign, the aformentioned channel 17. Its almost done. Finally.

So i was surfing on blog explosion today, and i noticed that a great way to generate comments is put your webstats log on your site, claim that firefox is in some way inferior to IE, and let the comments insue. Instead, i'm going to refute these claims.

Someone said that because firefox has 15% of the marketshare, its inferior. Its been released for a month. Thats like saying IE2.0 had 14% marketshare on netscape when it was released... and I happened to like IE2 better than netscape. I still hate netscape, but love firefox. Holy Bloatware!

Incase you care, 30% of my traffic is Firefox, with 50% IE. So... 30% of my traffic is me. I kid.

Anywho, if you're using IE, let me know, but if you're using firefox, or any other browser, let me know that too. I'm interested in finding out.

I should go to bed now.

Buy me this. NOW.

If i would have known treos were so cheap, i would have bought one instead of fixing my aformentioned palm screen. I really want to buy it, but you know, i should probably hold off due to christmas, etc. I don't have any money to begin with, and buying christmas presents will be a treat.
