Pageviews past week

            Ok, I am about to commit a cardinal sin. One of the rules to my very own blogspot is you must watch a movie in it’s entirety before judging it. I didn’t do so tonight! Oh well I guess you can sue me. Just be careful  my godfather is a lawyer and a friend of mine is in law school. 

Let me explain first of all why I didn’t watch this film from beginning to end. It was a white elephant Christmas party at my church. There was a lot of pretty ladies. Many many friends and about two million conversations going on at once. What I did see of it I liked much to my surprise considering it stared Will Ferrell as the titular character and the main marquee actor. 

          It also starred Zooey Deschanel. She was blonde in this one as apposed to yesterday’s review of Yes Man where she was a raven haired beauty.  She is still cuteness no matter what color locks she bares. 

I liked what I saw of this film witch wasn’t that much. It was whimsical, comical, uplifting and full of Christmas spirit. The supporting cast is excellent. It includes, James Caan, Edward Asner and Mary Steenburgen. They all filled their Christmas Shoes well and I may even put this movie on my Netflix queue and watch it from a more critical perspective. 

                                                                                                                                                                                           Grade B+

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
