When I was back at ASU last month for Cronkite Day, Student Media Director Jason Manning mentioned that The State Press would likely change from a daily to a weekly newspaper. Little did I realize how concrete and impending those plans were until I saw these tweets from a State Press sportswriter tonight: Big change […]

It’s time to wise up.
I’ll admit: I’ve been pretty bad at taking my own good advice. More than three years after I delivered a graduation speech asking my fellow J-school graduates to keep learning as we moved into the professional world, I’ve realized that I’ve lost sight of my own mandate to “learn from the past and grow into […]
The last time I was in Australia, I met all sorts of people and went to a bunch of places that were off the tourist’s beaten path. Such is the nature of an educational/exchange type of trip. This time around, of course, I haven’t had a team of local folks arranging homestays and meetings with […]
When I was putting up stuff in my bedroom, instead of spacing things out, I left a big open space just in case I felt like buying some srs biz fancy artwork or something of the sort: That empty spot has been there for almost a year, but now that Sam’s moving and doesn’t have […]
Ever since the day I moved to the Coachella Valley (and even before, actually) I’ve been getting my First Alert Forecasts from KESQ’s Ginger Jeffries. In fact, a certain reporter who happens to live in another market and I consider ourselves members of the KESQ Fan Club, and not the one that donates box fans […]
Before I get into the rest of how awesome this past weekend was, I suppose I should take a minute to explain what this SSP thing that I keep mentioning is. SSP stands for Sierra Service Project. It’s a nonprofit based in Sacramento that runs weeklong mission trips for church youth groups on Indian reservations […]
SNL’s Obama says ASU > UA!
Saturday Night Live is pretty hit-or-miss these days, but the opening of tonight’s show — which contained not just an ASU shout-out but also a UA snub — is definitely one of SNL’s greatest hits: I wonder if there are any Sun Devils on the SNL writing staff these days… or maybe they just noticed […]
’25 Lame’ lives on!
Tonight on YouTube, I stumbled across some clips from “25 Lame” — an MTV special from 1999 where Jon Stewart, Chris Kattan, Janeane Garofalo and Denis Leary counted down the 25 worst videos that had been played to date. The comics also vowed that MTV would never play the update » top 10 offending videos […]
Here’s a copy of the speech I delivered at the Cronkite School Convocation, as best I can remember it. There may still be a few instances of old wording that doesn’t reflect my on-the-spot ad-libbing, but I think I updated most of the language to be in line with what I actually said at the […]
So remember back in August 2004 when I thought it’d be funny if they had a Valley edition of Room Raiders? Tonight I discovered that, as of this season, they so do. In the words of Stephen Colbert, “I called it!” Sure, in my sarcasm I overshot when estimating just how weird we Arizonans would […]
