Help! Send tapes!

I'm looking for tapes to use for class examples. If anyone out there has done anything good lately (what are the chances of that?) I'd like to see it. And if YOU haven't done anything good, maybe one of your colleagues has. That's okay, too.


The Biekemobile

Mike Bieke's car is immortal. Some of you may remember the infamous J301 "Parking ticket" editing exercise, featuring Bieke's car, illegally parked (can you imagine that?), being ticketed by the parking gestapo. That video had been replaced by a new video (buying Coke from the vending machine). But Terry Bryant informed me today that he's put the parking ticket video back in circulation.

New Alumni Newsletter

Hey gang,

Dick has completed the latest Alumni Newsletter. It's a pretty good read including some interesting first-hand accounts of alums in the hurricane zone.

Also, there is confirmation of Dick's permanent promotion to GM. Hooray!!!

Read up!

I'm not headed south yet, but the evacuees are coming to me ((or rather to Wichita Falls)). Our first large group arrives on Friday and we're expecting more in the weeks to come. It's been an interesting time to live in Texas... actually it's the first time I've felt genuinely proud to live in the Lone Star State. It's amazing to see how many people have opened their homes to complete strangers.. and how many have jumped at the opportunity to head to Dallas or Houston and volunteer. Apartments here at home have opened their doors - rent free- to evacuees.. and complete strangers show up within days with appliances, food and clothes.

Alrighty.. I'm done. On a side note.. it's almost time for me to start job hunting.. so let's start posting some openings!!

Hurricane Katrina

Anybody other than Danner Evans and Meaghan Kelleher going south to cover the hurricane aftermath? (Meaqhan is already there, by virtue of the fact that she works in Lake Charles.)

New Jobs

Got a couple of new jobs to report. Liz Godfrey (who's last name isn't Godfrey anymore because she got married) has informed me that she is back in the television business. She's just landed a job in production at KREX in Grand Junction, Colorado.

Also, I have unconfirmed reports that Barry Loudis has moved on from the KU athletic department and is now working for College Sports Television is some capacity. However, this is second hand knowledge, so I don't know exactly what he's doing. Maybe he could drop me a line and let us all know.
