Good Info

I am starting to pull up some useful sites. I had truble when I first started, but now it's starting to come together. I found the website about Andy Greenwald very helpful. He had exactly what I was looking for when I was trying to find a forum with people who asked him questions about his job. He also seemed experienced, and he knew what he was talking about.

Citation 5: 1968 interview with The Who

Wenner, Jann. "1968 Rolling Stone Interview (by Jann Wenner)." Pete Townsend and The Who. 1968. 01 Nov. 2005 .

"Was it inevitable that you were going to start smashing guitars?"
"When did you start smashing guitars?"
"Were you happy about it?"

Jann Wenner seemed like she didn't have a lot of questions prepared. This made it seem more like they were actually having a natural conversation. It sounded like she just had one question and went with it.

Primary and Secondary Sources

For my primary source, I will use an interview with a real person who has a career in journalism. For my secondary source, I will go to a website that has forums and online interviews with a real journalist. I think that the only difference between the two, is that the interview with a real person will be harder to find and schedule.

Notes 4

"major: journalism." college board. 26 Oct. 2005 .

"With this degree, you could find yourself covering world events for a major newspaper or TV network, reporting on sports for a local radio station, or writing about entertainment on the Internet."

These are just a few fields.

Notes 3

Greenwald, Andy. "Ask Andy a question.." Online posting. . General Discussions. 26 Oct 2005. .

"If you want to be a writer, that means you need to WRITE. It may seem obvious, but you'd be surprised how many people overlook that little fact. Write as much as possible..."

It sounds right

Notes 2

Greenwald, Andy. "Ask Andy a question.." Online posting. . General Discussions. 26 Oct 2005. .

"I'm a strong believer in learning by doing -- and journalism is a great field to do just that."

I liked this quote, because it seemed like he really knew what he was talking about.

Notes 1

ling, dave. "backstage heros." getreadytorock.com. 2003. 24 Oct. 2005 <>.

"when I was younger I would sit and marvel at each new album from Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, The Sweet, Iron Maiden, Van Halen, Genesis and Status Quo - where was this music coming from?"

I think that this guy sounded pretty cool.

Why Mayo?

I don't even like mayonnaise. I'm not sure why I named it that. I am also sorry for spelling mayo incorrectly up to this point. That's a hard word to spell.

mayo

Woo Hoo! mayonaise.
