the lower case

Poorly-chosen headlines and text seem to be surviving into the e-publishing age, and Columbia Journalism Review is still running its "lower case" feature.  If you like seeing an authoritative little block of print declare something like "President, Congress, Butt Heads" or "Baseball Talks in Ninth Inning", or "Red Tape Holds Up New Bridge" (the title of one of their books), I highly recommend it.

Turning a page on radio

Well, now we know it's possible to at least set up an internet radio station on this site.

Keeping it going is another matter.  It's a lot of work for no pay.  I hesitate to completely take it off, but sometimes you have to make these breaks to keep moving forward.  And I can't really do the idea justice, as things now stand.  I need to work on making a living.  At the moment, anyway.

So, I'm setting it aside.  Sic transit gloria radio.  Maybe we can bring it back, more fully formed, next summer.

Today's radio upload

The internet radio station over there on the right is still very much a pilot project.  The big question is, can one person working on it part-time keep it interesting?

Let's try one-hour uploads into an 11-hour base.  Whenever it's possible.  That will move the program back (or ahead?) an hour, every time it plays.  So you can tune in regularly and hear something different at least some of the time. 

The next hour is up.

Cutup political ad

This lady's ad consists of her opponents agreeing with her.  It may be manipulated like cutup always is, but apparently none of it is out of context, and they really are agreeing with her.  Which has to be some kind of first for a political ad.
