TV STATION NEWS DEPARTMENT THROWS IN THE TOWEL

By Steven Lane, published on Feb 13, 2007

...of just, dry as toast, reporting with an occasional letter to the editor to excite oneself, news gathering and reporting is becoming part of a dialog process. News is about to transform into a "one world" discussion about anything and everything. According to the Ventura Star Free Press article of 2/12/07, "KFTY's switch is an ambitious experiment in "citizen journalism", mainstream media's equivalent of user-generated content at YouTube and MySpace.com.

Myspace: outer space, out of place, or in taste?

By maceo manhattan, published on Nov 20, 2006

Fox interactive media made headlines a year ago when it announced its half a billion dollar purchase of Myspace. Industry analyst estimate that there investment has doubled if not tripled thanks to aggressive marketing leading to more corporate sponsorship and a base of members that exceeds 125 million. Having been a member on and off for two years now, I constantly question my motives and the motives of Fox. Is Myspace truly your myspace or is it your space? Opening the Myspace webpage is like walking thru an x-rated virgin of Times Square in earlier morning hours. There are a plethora of dating... (more)

More Press for 'Borat'

By C. Reagan, published on Nov 11, 2006

...into drinking while at University, especially when offered screen time or publicity to spread the word about my thoughts on the world. The boys have remained anonymous for now, with "Borat" being widely released this week, I'm sure it won't be long before they are identified on YOUTUBE or MYSPACE. Unless you've been living under a rock, it's likely that you've heard how drop dead funny this movie is. Regardless of any lawsuits, go see the film and grab a few extra napkins from the concessions stand. You will laugh yourself to tears and gasp in horror, not only at drunk frat boys,... (more)

New Kid On the Block: Is BrooWaha The Answer to LA's Newspaper Woes?

By Ariel, published on Nov 5, 2006

...Q: If people essentially "vote" for articles, is this really a social networking site for the blogger-set? A: Social networking is not one of the main goals of BrooWaha and I took particular care when designing the website to keep it from becoming another vain attempt at reproducing what MySpace is today. If people want to use BrooWaha to meet bloggers, journalists, writers, etc, in addition to interacting with the site as a newspaper, more power to them. However, I don't think it will ever be primarily a social networking site. People will go to BrooWaha to read news articles and... (more)

The Golden Boys Of Orange County

...to an office, we show up and play guitar.” Devitt adds, “Dance now because you never know when you’re going to die.” After a long intermission, Great Glass Elevator took the stage, behind a white curtain, on which they projected the video they had been advertising on myspace, the popular website, since early September. Allegedly, their lead singer’s brain was taken out of his skull by an evil scientist, and implanted into a Frankenstein-like creature, composed of Freddie Mercury’s moustache (which later fell off, which was “okay,”... (more)

The Art of the Garage Sale

By Alethea, published on Oct 30, 2006

...specific big items you want to get rid of as well as a general sale listing. A lot of people scan through the sites looking for specific items, so if you have a lot of specialty items (like a lot of anime), you should definitely put up several posts indicating special items. Craigslist and Myspace seemed to be the most prolific in terms of attracting people to the sale, more so than the Recycler and Pennysaver. -- Signage – Besides advertising, putting up garage sale signs is a must. A large part of the traffic will be due to those people that wander around looking for garage... (more)
