AC NEWMAN AT THE DOUG FIR! (via The Pioneer Log)
Sometimes you write previews at the last second just to score tickets to the show. Such is the life of a lazy music journalist. And by lazy I mean fully-loaded college student and Editor-in-Chief of the newspaper. Happy weekend, all! And if anyone wants to go see AC Newman with me, I’ve got a +1!
Tonight marked the unofficial re-beginning of my life. As you may or may not know, I live, breathe, and bleed the Lewis & Clark student-run newspaper. The Pioneer Log is my baby, my pride and joy, and the thing that gets me through the week every single week. Maybe it’s creepy the extent that I enjoy my job, but I like to think my passion for this sort of thing is a good sign.
Tonight was our first layout, and it was an amazing success. My good friend and long-time co-section editor Hayley and I have a really great staff, who are, although somewhat inexperienced, have a lot of enthusiasm and energy about what they are doing.
The cover that I am posting marks a change in the appearance of The Pioneer Log. We haven’t undergone a complete re-design, but we wanted to format our paper more as a news magazine, and we drew inspiration from some alternative newsweeklies in Portland and Seattle.
Sophomore Kelsey Gray did the cover art for us, and I think it is fantastic. I hope that you all enjoy our first issue this week! It’ll be on stands Friday at 9am.
If you aren’t around to get a physical copy, you can read the articles online at http://piolog.com, and soon they’ll be up on Issuu, once I get that figured out.
Cheers friends! Here’s to the up and up!
