    Speak to @thestorfer first- his experience is going to be more useful- but I'd be happy to try and give some pointers from my perspective if you want.

    If broadcast journalism interests you then it really would need to be an internship, (preferably paid) until you have more professional experience under your belt. That's not necessarily a bad thing though because a lot of the major broadcasters prefer to hire their interns as they're already schooled in the house-style.

    I drove to the beach yesterday with 2 friends and sarge and rooster in my car. This is what we listened to:

    Taylor Swift - 1989
    Sleater Kinney - No Cities to love
    Kesha - Animal
    Screaming Females -a mix
    Queen Bey - Lemonade

    It was glorious

    Took today off for a job interview and to finish up some yard projects.

    The interview changed times/locations and now I don't know where I'm going. Plus it's raining and 40-something (after being sunny and 90 a couple days ago).

    Today isn't exactly going along with my plans.

    Generally, I'm not opposed. But it thunderstormed all night so everything is wet and mud pies were not on the menu.

    I don't know how you feel about Paramore as a whole, but their new album might be right up your alley. It's fun, pop goodness with some personal lyrics that don't immediately stand out until you dig into them.

    Bleh. Hope you figured out the interview thing. Guess it's spinning records and sipping coffee the rest of the day instead of yardwork. Bummer...

    Figured out the interview thing. Was going to go to the record store, then I looked at my backlog pile. Right about the time the mail carrier dropped off a BullMoose box.

    I've only ever really been to the CDC, but it's huge and there is tons to do. Traffic is terrible so you should plan to live nearer to where you work and it's a really affordable city.

    But it's football team sucks. :p

    Just got slammed with 2 large jobs at work and now I have to work 2nd shift for the next 6+ weeks to help get them done. As well as pretty much every weekend in that time frame.

    The extra cash will be a bit nice though.

    Bright side is I also applied to another assistant brewer position at a brewery in Cedar Falls/Waterloo (Singlespeed) so fingers crossed something happens with that.

    URGENTish: does it matter if a recipe calls for baking soda and all i have is baking powder?


    follow up: does it matter if the best by date on the baking powder is 12/2015?

    Yes they're not the same.

    Also yes it doesn't stay good for a year.

    Yes. You'll need to use more baking powder. 3x as much, I believe. To test if the baking powder is still good put a little in a bowl and add some water. If it foams it's still good. But that is really old baking powder.

    Don't you live in LA? Just order the powder/soda from delivery service.
