I watched “Man in the Moon” last night. It’s very odd, the ending to the movie really strikes a chord with me and it wasn’t until the second or third time throught that I really watched and understood one of the scenes. Andy Kaufman was an intriguing character and so enigmatic that he still resounds after all these years.
I watched the Mooseheads yesterday, poor effort. Same goes for the Leafs on Saturday. Bobby Mac from Q104 does trivia at the Moosehead games and he got a fact wrong in one of his questions. I was rather vocal about it, and Murf was like, you should write a strongly worded email. So I emailed him and told him that Marc Chouinard was drafted by Winnepeg and not by Anaheim and he was traded to Anaheim in the Selanne deal and I actually got a reply back. Needless to say, it was simply a thank you, but still.
It’s a pretty cock thing to do, to nitpick things like that, but at the same time, shouldn’t someone hold broadcasters/journalists/writers in high regard? I mean, they’re the professionals, if they don’t take the time to check something simple like that, does that mean they’re lazy in other ends of the reporting world as well.
On that same line, (very odd by the way, I never intended to write much and I’ve been sitting here for ten minutes looking at the screen with nothing flowing). Anyway, on that same line, I did a small thank you to my audience of Duck fans at HF’s message boards. I’m in the process of writing a letter to Stephanie and through that I’m realising that my own selfishness will be what keeps me covering Anaheim for HF. So perhaps nipping as much of it in the bud as possible, recognizing my shortcomings and making do would be the best. The thank you was hidden deep into discussion on a seperate issue and so I was able to be semi-honest about my doubts that I’ll be writing for HF…at least in the same capacity in a year’s time. I got to say, despite my yearning for an audience that worships me, I appreciate the one I have, who questions every statement I have and forces me to defend my arguments and research my points. It’s making me a better writer and a better researcher and entering into the fray dips the creative quill into the inkpot. bringing the passion for the words back when it is lacking.
On a completely seperate note, I have a slight web design situation that I need resolution of:
It’s the navigation for a fairly large site
I want to use CSS, but…
I am very afraid of changes to be done to the menu over time and do not want to have to update 100 pages anytime there’s a new entry in one of the menus.
Is there anyway to do it with CSS, so that the menu content is actually inside the css file? Or perhaps with DHTML so there’s a css and a js file
My knowledge of Flash and PHP is lacking, this is my main stopping point before doing a lot of web design for Sport NS
Keeping on the work subject, the website for the 2014 Commonwealth Games bid of 2014 is up. Here. It’s a really big deal, and yet I have no idea about our chances. Halifax should have a pretty decent idea of the future of sport and recreation in the city by the end of the year. It could be huge. maybe even enough to change my path
I have a bunch of crazy stuff to post about blogging and journalism sometime, but I need to get up and go to the Leafs game now. It’s something to do…
