What Are We Doing Here?

Jan
02
What's my point? What is this site supposed to be? What are you trying to do? Answer: a little bit of a lot of things. Value: a little bit. Relevance: not much, but it beats doing nothing. The goal here is to do some writing and publish it and maybe a few people will read it. Maybe no one will read it. Getting readers isn't the goal. Writing is the goal. Simplistic, I agree, but something I want to do, so it gives me a frame to focus my mind. Having a little focal point or maybe several focal points, gives one a point or purpose or value or relevance. So I guess I am just trying to exist and leave a mark. Still working on it, so be patient.

How I Spent My Christmas Vacation

Jan
03

Every year, my office generously gives us the week between Christmas & New Year's off. This year included a couple bonus days like today. In anticipation of these fantastic stretches of non-work time I create a list of things to do. Last year, I watched a movie every day of the break. This year's list was more productive:

  • pack up all of this year's bills/receipts
  • get tax paperwork ready
  • have & significantly recover from the Asian eyelid surgery
  • walk around the city (to the gym, from the gym, etc.) facilitated by the recent unseasonably warm weather
  • prowl the downtown area for post-Christmas deals
  • watch movies (Quantum of Solace, Little Children, Man on Wire, The Big Sleep, Black Snake Moan, etc.)

This is in addition of course, to the holiday madness of present wrapping, cooking, cleaning, baking, parties, family, etc. Hmm, seeing it all written out like this makes it seem less than impressive.  Oh well, there's always next year.

This might not be news...

This might not be news but I just saw Jesse Jackson sitting in the lobby of my office building (aka. The Enquirer building). Is there more to this entry? No. That's why it might not be news.

Jet Lag

Aug
29
I used to think jet lag was a myth. Especially for domestic travel. It's just a 3 hour difference... cowboy up! This weekend's trip west appears to have had no effect. Unless you count the fact that I've been at least one hour early or late to every appointment since then.

Or Am I Not Paranoid Enough?

Jul
11

I've decided to go back for my MBA since work will reimburse me for a couple classes each year.

Note to self: Even though the summer catalogue of classes says the class is Tuesday & Thursday, always double check. Lesson learned last night when I arrived for class 24 hours late.

John from Cincinnati

Jun
11

John from Cincinnati premiered last night after the Sopranos. I loved Deadwood and Point Break so how could this show be bad?

It's not... yet. First episodes are hard, so much to do in so little time... character introductions, relationships to set up.

Surf movies are different from westerns b/c there's not the easy set-up of good guy/bad guy. There aren't as many surf movies as there are westerns, so the background of familiar scenarios is missing as well.

Either way, having a show named John from Cincinnati might give people in other parts of the country something to reference besides the WKRP theme song.

David Milch, don't let me down.

Declaration of Principles

Mar
30

We contain multitudes. Cincinnati is a vibrant city with life bubbling over. If you were to stick with the mainstream channels of information, you wouldn't know how alive Cincinnati is. We are here to change that. We are the Conveyor. We aim to be original, but not obtuse. Our mission is the explore the city and bring our readers experiences and opportunities.


I, Mr. Editor, have started this endeavor to bring the people of Cincinnati closer to their own community. The goal is to open the eyes of the people of Cincinnati and peak their interests. No matter what you like to do, you can fill your mind with it here in the Cincinnati area. In our attempt to meet this goal, here are the principles we will employ:

 

  1. Have fun - Yes, this is something we are doing for fun. Fun doesn't mean everything is a joke. Fun means we enjoy what we are writing about. If we get a little irreverent along the way, well, blame the booze. In the case of some of our writers, blame the Nietzsche.
  2. Be honest - Our writers are going to write what is on their minds. They will not go on personal crusades. They will not fear telling the truth. If something sucks, they are going to say it sucks. They will not be jerks about it or will not be writing here.
  3. Be original - Lead. Only follow when the leader is worth being followed. Make waves, don't just ride them.
  4. Write from your point of view - We are writing opinion. We are not a news organization, so don't be surprised when we like something or don't like something.
  5. Be intellectual - We are not fluff. We're going to use our noggin and make the reader use theirs too. We will try, desperately, to not make it stuffy and certainly will try to not make it boring.
  6. Be factual - We will try to make everything we write as accurate as possible. We will try not to give an opinion that is laced with ulterior motives. If we have a stake in something, we will be up front about it.
  7. Be different, but not just because - Difference is great. Being different just to break away from something popular is about ego, not about learning. We are unique, but we want to relate and communicate with everyone. We can't do that if we just are going to shy away from other people who are doing great things. If something is popular we want to know why. We may not like it, but we'll try to let you be judge of that, after we give our take.

Effort is what counts. Results matter, but are not an exclusive method to measure success. If there are times when we don't meet your expectations, we will listen to what have to say, but we will not act without determining the facts for ourselves. We will not beat ourselves to death if a insignificant point isn't perfect. Call it rough or raw if you want, we are not going to lose sleep over minor details.

We are a work in progress. The Conveyor will not stand still. It may take a kick in the ass sometimes, but we'll keep it moving.
