Scott Fitzgerald said there were no second acts to American lives. Things have changed; many creative types not only have second acts, but concurrent lives. One such modern is DARYN JOHNSON, who is on the road to Tampa’s WFTS where he’ll be live directing news and events. That’s one act. Act two is his voice work. He’s amazing. Daryn has been directing at Fox in Philly – the man hitting buttons for “Good Day Philadelphia” to be precise. His move to the Scripps ABC affil is for the best of reasons – to be closer to family. He’s been a director for WOFL and WESH in the Orlando markets as well as several production companies. But let’s focus on his voice work.  Of course, he’s Well Dunne! and with that, we send him kudos and all the best. And you…well, send good thoughts but listen and see if he’s not just the sound you need. Go on…do it.


ANGELA COURTIN has three new initials to add to her business card: CMO. Love those three initials.  The striking redhead is joining FOX as the VP and Chief Marketing Officer for the network. Angela is an Oklahoma State U Cowboy who’s making the switch to Fox just in time, since her old post at Relativity Media is going away (poor Relativity declared bankruptcy Friday). Ms Angela has worked at MTV, Aegis as well as been a producer for HBO’s Big Love. Very interesting background. A big Well Dunne! for a big job.

Know about noloc.org? It’s the system that will keep your Tweets from being archived by the Library of Congress. Yeah, starting November 10, 2010, all tweets will be archived. Seems like a lot of work….but if you decide that you don’t want your particular postings to be kept around forever, noloc.org is something you should look into.

End of July. You’d think the heat would make it seem longer than it was….

Think About This: "A human being is part of the whole, called by us ‘Universe,’ a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole [of] nature in its beauty." ~ Albert Einstein
