ALERT: today, I believe, is the day my new - er, my twin brother's video goes up on StarTribune.com. I encourage you to give it a look - from what I understand, it contains some scenes of him getting caught pitching a fit when he's reassigned from his beat, and then he covers a local art festival. He doesn't know what he's doing yet, and like many serious middle-aged journalists, doesn't really understand the whole video thing. Yet. We're sure he'll get it eventually. GO WATCH.
NOTE: If you're reading this in the Western Hemisphere in the reasonable AM hours of Monday, it should be up; if you're South Korea or China or New Zealand, I cannot vouch for the clip. If it's not on the front page yet, it'll be up around noon.
As for the Bleat? Well,look at this from my perspective: all the time usually spent writing the Bleat and the morning buzz.mn update was spent doing something very different and quite enjoyable. I took notes, but they need ordering and tweaking. I could stay up until two and get it all done and THEN write the buzz.mn update, or I could write it all tomorrow and post it all on buzz.mn, since it is a local event. That's what I will do.
