Recent media roundup (for Grandma, etc, have mercy thanks):
1) “Waiting for my byline,” courtesy of News 8 Austin. How romantic!
2) This article in Jawa Pos, one of Indonesia’s major newspapers, about my recent visit with some of their journalists. I wish I could read it but I don’t know
Javanese. Bahasa Indonesian. Regrettably. Maybe you will fare better.
UPDATE: a translation!!
According to Leah Finnegan, editor in chief, along with Vikram Swaruup, executive editor, now tirasnya lived 15 thousand copies. Go down about 5 thousand compared to before.
A newspaper published Monday through Friday that is distributed free to students and general citizens in the City of Austin, Texas. Newspaper ads that were funded from student fees and tuition are through there since 1900. However, the operational costs of print and that the management will make a big selling machine printed.
”We will print the outside of course, cheaper. We would like to outsourcing ,” said Leah, 21, who later diwisuda May and also means that the end of tenure Pemred it.
Hola gabachos. I started mentally preparing this wknd for my impending move to NYC. I think I will liquidate most of my accrued Texas assets so let me know if you’re interested in an assortment of mini cacti, a shower curtain rod a/o a full-length mirror with one corner chipped off. All prices negotiable. Not for sale is my jar collection. Sorry.
Until next time,
P.S. Luc Sante’s blog, fyi. It’s good.
This week’s Newspaper of the Week was going to be the Medford Mail Tribune in honor of its harrowing succession of articles on a brainless crack baby named Rachel, but the series was published in 1989 and apparently their online archives don’t stretch back that far.
So I’ve instead picked the Idaho Falls Post Register, if only because it looks good. Seriously — check the closeup of their front page today. Complementary colors, a photo illustration, a mountainscape … beauty! Vikram (the tenille to my capt at the daily tex) might kill me for saying all this. Let me know if you approve.]

DJ Dan Gentile said he wanted to see more jokes on this blog but I only have one joke and it’s my way to meet people at parties and everyone’s heard it already anyway. It’s about 50 Cent and sweaters. Sorry Dan.
Spring break is over and so is SXSW, thank god, even though it was nice to be in blotto little Austin these past few days. Having a party in every corner of a city can inspire even the most taciturn to let loose or at least wear fun costumes … and so I did. It was a fulfilling last hurrah of youth before I have to max out my debit card at Nordstrom’s little boys dept. for professional wear.
I have also been introduced to a delicious new varietal of gum: Orbit Mist Mango Surf.
Talk to you soon.
Really jazzed about this movie. For supplementary info, irishhungerstrike.com is worth a look. Also Bobby Sands’s prison diaries. God. Must learn Gaelic.
This week’s newspaper is the St. Petersburg Times. Kind of predictable, I know, but for those of us intrigued by feral children, their piece on “the girl in the window” is the modern gold standard.
This is for Veronica on her 22nd b-day! A little late but i know she doesn’t care.
I’m also doing this for spring break, sub “my apartment” for “undisclosed location.” Poor little apartment. I realized a couple of months ago that I installed my shower curtain inside out when I moved in last August and have yet to rectify the situation. At this point, there’s no use. T-minus not that many days until it’s back to EST. Hoka hey!
Clearing up some recent esotery:
My paperwhite is dead. Tea of the moment is Himalayan apple spice. Plans for spring break include but are not limited to finishing “The Perfect Wife: a Biography of Laura Bush.”
How are you?
I’m going to start a new feature called Newspaper of the Week. This week’s newspaper is the San Antonio Business Journal. I am not being facetious — I read the thing frame to frame today and it was so good.
