Pageviews past week

Monday, September 12, 2016


               This movie had its ups and downs. Mostly ups though. This movie while intense was worth every 96 minutes. The film was entertaining through and through and worthy every penny of the 0 dollars I paid for it. That is right I got it for free and they say sometimes the best things in life are free.

            While this movie is sad and depressing in its premise. (An old widow wants to get away from it all and visit a place his wife dreamed of visiting her entire life.) The film is mostly upbeat and chipper coming down to the friendship he discovers with the young scout he accidently took a long for the ride.

            What a ride it was to. The voice cast including Ed Asner as the main character was nothing but top notch and award winning. (It won two. [Neither of them Oscars.]) The Pixar animation of course was spectacular, stunning and majestic from start to finish.

            This is definitely a family film. One every one in will enjoy including A 35 (soon to be 36) year old bachelor that has no family or even a girlfriend for that matter. (I am looking though.) What I could not find is a more perfect film, four stars or A all the way.

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!
