Latest ‘Skyfall’ trailer

New toys, a new Q, and a new trailer for the upcoming James Bond movie, “Skyfall.” You always know whose side Bond is on, but what is Judi Dench up to as M?

Not a bad looking place

I love time-lapse video. This one, put together by photographer Knate Myers from video taken from the International Space Station, will remind you — if you need reminding — just what a beautiful place our Earth can be.
The visuals are accompanied by music by John Murphy.

All fall down

I’ll just let this Penn State student and alumnae speak for themselves as the Paterno statue came down Sunday.
But … “We’re still trying to figure this out.”
What part don’t they understand?

Not too trivial for me

This may seem trivial, but it’s all about trivia. Maybe good for a discussion in my “History of Journalism: From Gutenberg to Zuckerberg” class this fall.
Filmmmaker Jeremiah Warren created this animated video that explores the trivia behind trivia.

The party’s over at WJMC

The National Youth Correspondents for the 2012 Washington Journalism and Media Conference ended their time at the Mason Inn on George Mason University’s Fairfax campus, enjoying dinner, dancing and saying their goodbyes.

‘The Sarah Palin Rap’

I can’t help it — I just love the “Sarah Palin Rap” video from “Saturday Night Live” back in the fall of 2004.

My turn at the WJMC

Hoda Kotb of the "Today Show" at the WJMC at George Mason University.

What a day for the National Youth Correspondents of the 2012 Washington Journalism and Media Conference, who visited the National Press Club! The day started with “Today Show” host Hoda Kotb, who always seems to hug more than her share of the students, followed by a panel discussion with Chuck Todd, Chris Cillizza, April Ryan and Dana Bash.
Tough to top that, but I’ll give it my best on July 11 at 7:30 p.m. in the Johnson Center at George Mason University in Fairfax when I talk about “Journalism for the Rest of Us.” Hope the room is packed!

The place to meet on the Fairfax campus

The George Mason statue is kitty-corner to the Johnson Center and the Mason Pond Parking Deck, where guests can easily park on the first three levels (Fairfax campus map). As soon-to-be emeritus faculty, I'm always happy to meet with friends and my former Mason students on campus.

Alum Kevin McCarthy at work

Film critic and GMU alum Kevin McCarthy encouraged students during his many visits to my GMU classes to pursue internships and "get noticed!" See some of Kevin's terrific interviews on his Nerd Tears website.
