Getting Ink

Woot! I got a reply today from the Indiana Review. I had submitted some stuff to them AGES ago, and only today got some feedback. Despite the rather lengthy lag, this was some great news. Here’s the big thing with submitting writing to be considered for publication: getting ink. This is a term that writers use that signifies their submission…

The Loop

Some big news on the work front. The company I work for, Emmis, has announced a very significant deal today. They purchased one of the big stations here in Chicago (the Loop), in exchange for three Phoenix-based stations (KTAR, KKLT, KMVP) and $70M. This is huge, as the Loop is what is termed a “heritage” station here in Chicago. Combined…

On the way to work

I’m not sure who did this, but I recognize the artwork. Sort of. Ever since I found out about the Love Again project, I’ve stopped into their forum from time to time.

In fact, I spent most of the day sleeping. Does anyone else have days like this? I seem to go through phases where…

Get Rich Slow Scheme

Justin and I had a few drinks after work and, as we are want to do, ended up geeking out some. Last weekend, I ended up working with him on developing a Flash-based audio player. In return, I’m able to tap Justin’s considerable database/programming prowess for some project of my own… but I’ve yet to figure out what that’s going…

Three Windows

There is this old house on North Avenue that’s been under some sort of reconstruction for many, many months now. It looks run down, but each time I see it I think of it as a good house, a strong house. For some reason. Reconstruction is a misleading word. Someone sold it, and for a while… all their possessions were…
