Well, not really big news. At work we have a photographer’s blog, but the photographers are usually so busy, you know, taking photographs, they don’t have time to update it. Which leaves us, the desk staff (aka, deskers) to do it, if we have the time and interest.

I personally love it, because there are a lot of photos that don’t get play in the paper or have no room to be fit into, so I can post some of them up on the blog. But I, like many of our readers, want to know the story behind the photos. Cool things happen to photogs sometimes. They may not think it’s a big deal, but they live fairly interesting work lives, in between the shots of old ladies, new animals at the zoo and weather.

Anyhow, I updated the blog on the death of Polaroid, which caused me great consternation when I was away in Asia, because I knew I would miss the last batches of film in Edmonton. Luckily Austin was a strong hold of film and I loaded up.

But, I had the great pleasure of being on the workplace website the other day (which is neat, because I do lot of work on it, but my name is never associated with any of my work). Also on the screenshot; a piece of audio I edited and the word penis. Good times.

Top right hand corner, folks.

    Looks like you’ve taken over the blog there, Kelly. I can only assume this is the first step in an elaborate plan to either take the paper over, or fill the the front page of the Journal with audio clips, your name, and penis-wiggling references.

    Also, that picture at the bottom of the photoblog is brilliant (the Mazankowski Heart Institute one). Almost makes the place worth the $200 million…

    Paras! I heard you are in town; might see you tonight.
    I AM going to take over the website, my friend. And wiggle as many penii as I please.

    I also just noticed that there is a typo in the subheader on the main Brenda Martin story. THAT WOULD HAVE NEVER HAPPENED ON MY WATCH.

    The night that the Mazankowski assignment came up, the photographer came in (he’s usually the night shifter) asking where he could get sparklers. So we called every party place in the city and then some fireworks joints. It may not have turned out so well if we had failed, but luckily Party City came through!

    Tory, you can tell we’re from the same genetic material; the first time I saw her photo, that’s EXACTLY what I thought.

    The cruel truth will be that the Mexican authorities really locked her up for crimes again fashion.
