24. December 2009 · Comments Off on Write for the Examiner · Categories: Links, Nutcracker, Ramble

I’m not really interested in becoming a writer (I’ve run this blog through a site that determines my writing level and I believe it said I write at a third grade level. Go figure.), but if you go here you can see that the Examiner has openings for local writers, including the “San Jose Cello Examiner” and the “San Jose Flute Examiner”. There is no “San Jose Oboe Examiner” and I’m wondering if I should picket the paper. (Mostly because it really sounds so cool to say “Picket the Paper” … especially when it’s “Patty Pickets the Paper” or “Petty Patty Pickets the Paper” … hmmm. So much potential.

(Oooh. I also see “Monterey Bay Tattoo Art Examiner” and that does seem right up my alley. Yes?)

Meanwhile, one of Symphony Silicon Valley‘s own, French hornist Beth Zare, is already the Monterey Bay Area Arts Examiner. Yay Beth! Check out her Nutcracker Adventures article. (Maybe it should have been called Misadventures?)

Speaking of Nutcracker … one more for me, today at 1:35. Then it’s goodbye until 2010.
