Help! ... I need somebody



The Indiana Daily Student summer staff is heading into its second month behind the wheel. I can’t say it’s been easy, because quite frankly, it hasn’t. Just as I predicted at the beginning of the summer, the news is slow.

So what is the IDS missing?

I know we’re not getting all the stories out there. My last plea for story ideas was successful, so I know ideas are there. If you have story ideas, please feel free to e-mail me at editor@idsnews.com.

I’m also willing to accept likes and dislikes. Whatever it is you want to send me, I’m all ears.

New blog


Ben Bizenuh is a character. If you don’t know who he is, he does stand-up around Bloomington during the school year and is just a funny dude in general. Oh, and he works here.

I was introduced to Bizenuh one day at the IDS while he was sitting in our multimedia studio editing a video. I sat down next to him and he started rolling the clip. It was him performing as his alter ego Nigel Finch, a British reporter in America. If you haven’t seen his videos, you should at www.idsnews.com/multimedia.

Bizenuh has started his own blog at the IDS titled “Just kidding ... but seriously.” It’s just Bizenuh being Bizenuh. I hope you enjoy it. If not, I’m sure he’ll find a way for you to laugh.

You can find it at www.idsnews.com/blogs/justkidding.

Oops!

On May 28, the IDS ran a “Campus Quiz” in the campus section. Yeah, we forgot to tell you where and what it was. If you can’t remember, it was a photo of a stained glass window. It’s a window in Beck Chapel. Sorry about that.

For the music lovers


I hope you’re enjoying WEEKEND magazine this summer. It’s really come into its own since we merged it to a section within the IDS. I like to get a lot of my music tips from WEEKEND’s reviews section, but I haven’t found anything I’ve liked, and my iPod is getting a little stale.

I need a mix of about two hours for the gym (I’m usually at the HPER – just wave hello to me). Lately I’ve been listening to The Beatles (gearing up for “The Beatles: Rock Band” – Sept. 9, baby!), Billy Joel, Eric Clapton and a variety of other artists. But I need suggestions.

Write them in to me. I hope someone does, because if not, I’m going to be that girl on the bike machine at the HPER sleeping.

Have a good weekend.
