News director Chris Little shows digital content producer @alysonthefish how to throw a punch. by @kfiam640
Here's an email we all got today. How rude. Who is this person who expects us to clean up after ourselves at work?!
Time to remind everyone that we need to clean up after ourselves.
At work stations, news prep rooms and the booth: Wipe the place down after you eat. Throw crap away. Put supplies in their proper place. Load the printer when you use the last sheet of paper both in the booth and in the newsroom.
Keep your feet off the walls.
When you throw crap in the trash and it splats on the wall, wipe it up.
Take pride in this place.
Whoever posts this email is volunteering to clean up after you for the month of September. That'll be a nice break for me.
When my kids cried for no good reason, even a "good" reason, I used to turn music on and up to drown the crying out until it went down and off. This worked best in the car. The side effect: One kid is a musician and college student with a quiet and pensive disposition, the other is a loud high school junior who, last week, bought a $20 trench coat from Goodwill.
An editor at Reddit says he's found a way to stop his baby from crying 90% of the time. Unknown what the side effects will be.
The thing about urinals is they are apparently hard to hit. I mean we guys have so much going on while taking a leak: Texting, making sure nobody looks at our "equipment," trying to keep from dropping stuff into the pissoir. Yes, I know a urinal not a pissoir but many guys like to call it that. And it's fun to say. Side bar: Spell check wants to correct "pissoir" to "pisser." That's another restroom word that rolls right off the tongue, but a little more low-brow than "pissoir."
Anyway, the users of the urinal here at Clear Channel, Los Angeles have chronic aiming problems as alluded to above. So naturally, when one drops something in the area of collateral showering, one thinks twice about picking it up. And apparently somebody had a second thought about this pen.
I'm always looking for something easy to post. I found something.
When I first got into this business, shooting verticle videos was next to impossible. But now it's done almost every day. Well, these guys have begun a campaign to eradicate vertical videos.
