Many of you probably forgot already that I still do some work for a local joint here called "The Juice", huh? Don't worry about it if you did. No biggie. I haven't done any real freelance for them in quite a while, even though I thought I had at least one good story idea. However, I do still blog for them on a pretty regular basis.
My online journal there has been pretty much confined to just movie reviews. I could step outside of that realm every now and then if I so see fit. I just haven't felt the need since I have this one going as well. That's why if you do ever go there, you will often see duplication in the reviews I show here that will also show there.
Anyway, I thought I would mention it because I just ran across a very interesting phenomena there that rarely happens. If you were to look at their site at the same time I did (at the exact time of this posting), you would see under their "today's blogs" section there are three brothas out there highlighted. They only have three of us writing blogs and we are all showcased! If someone didn't know any better, they would go to The Juice and think that brothas are running this city!
It's actually just coincidence that it turned out that way. Almost. See, whenever a new Juice blogger posts an entry, their blog is highlighted on the front page. It is done so in chronological posting order. As you can see from the pic, I had posted most recently so I was first. Gregory Park had posted just prior to me and Romelle Slaughter just prior to him. And before you ask, Des Moines isn't THAT small so no, I don't actually know either one of them.
I say it was almost coincidence because I purposely try to make those scenes happen. When I go there and see that Gregory and Romelle have recent entries, I hurry up and get one out there as well. I have plenty of movie reviews in archives so it's easy for me to pull one to get posted out there. That way, I know we can monopolize that front page. Even if it is for just a few minutes, it is still a nice scene to see for that fleeting moment.
