6:16 PM - CAU Marching Band

I'm not sure what this was about. Must have been an end of the year rally as we start reading period and then final exam week. If only I can show and convey the performance of this band. They were at Sen. Obama's rally just over a couple of weeks ago.

1:04 PM - What's Your Inner Color?

Your Inner Color is Red

Your Personality: Self-confident and stunning, you live in the now! You love life and experience all it has to offer.

You in Love: You're a bit private and have trouble opening up. You need a secure partner who can deal with your independence.

Your Career: Your ideal job gives you a ton of control and concrete results. Consider being a chef, surgeon, or architect.

9:25 PM - Stay in school kids!!!!

I try not to knock our janitorial staff but this can really be a good motivation to tell kids to stay in school or you'll make the errors this guys make in making a sign when they clean the bathrooms. The sign reads...

This bathroom is tempory close

Remember kids,"Keep your butt in school!!!"

I suppose you can call this the real Georgia Dome where the Atlanta Falcons play. This is a different Georgia Dome where state legislators meet. On the grounds there are sculptures of mostly important figures in Georgia and this includes President Jimmy Carter.

I wanted to get a picture of Jimmy Carter but I didn't have enough storage on the phone to even either keep the picture or post it here.

7:49 PM - Miss Maroon and White pageant

Earlier this week the seven ladies in this competition were campaign on campus. Tonight they have their show with a Q&A, talent, and an evening gown segment. Then we vote.

Here we see one of the contestants playing a piano and singing a contemporary song.

I wish I had a photo of it, but the one act that stole the show was a group of guys performing as Chinese dragons. It was hilarious because it went on and on. Everytime we thought it was over they'd start up again. The crowd hated it, but I found it the most interesting only because of the crowd's reaction.

1:57 PM - Spelman SGA campaign

A lot of things seem off this year. Usually Spelman College holds their elections in February/March. This sign looks a lot more profession than I would have expected.

The ladies of Spelman College generally like to make handmade campaign materials of which this sign wasn't. And I see that they have other posters around that I didn't take pictures of that use familiar corporate logos like one sign feigned a Cingular look, another Pepsi, and other still Kellogs (or to be more specific Special K).

10:55 AM - We Miss Robert


YouTube description...
T-BAGG laments the loss of "Robert"
A hilarious video. It should have you falling on the floor laughing. There isn't a lot of cursing thank goodness, but some elements might have you scratching your head. Actually the tune of this video is more appealing than most of what I hear in rap today.

3:51 PM - Pizza Hut - Super Supreme (Commercial, 1980)

I really enjoyed the look back provided by this YouTube user fuzzymemories. I really enjoyed this Pizza Hut commercial. It was about 1995 or so that even having lived in Chicago just about all my life that I started eating Chicago style pizza. Before that point it would have always been Pizza Hut and it would have been at a Pizza Hut on Cottage Grove until that place was closed and torn down in the last decade.

4:28 PM - Response to V-Log #3...

I was looking at the traffic tallies through Feedburner and Blip.tv. Not sure if they go totally hand in hand, but the numbers are somewhat surprising. I think most of it had to do with the fact that I took video of a prominent black fraternity, Omega Psi Phi. It's unfortunate that no one seem to have had a comment. They just dropped by and maybe saw the video and left.

In one case I saw that my video may have made it's way to a Yahoo! Group. I can't join since I'm not an Omega. Still I'm flattered that my video is being shared and seen. I wish I could have had more footage, but I wasn't working with much and it would have required me to get right into the action.

So the numbers thru Feedburner as of April 9th are 283 visitors. Which isn't bad for this sleepy blog. Especially since I don't average many videos. My last one was in December of last year.

Also the number thru Blip.tv are 309. Now I don't know how that's determined were "blippers" watching the video on Blip.tv or were these visitor clicking play on this blog. Still that more than any other video I have posted here on this blog.

So I guess that's all. I don't anticipate a photoblog today. I have other videos lined up but since it has been designed as a rarity that I post one, it'll be some time before I may post another one. Besides I've already overdone it on the cameraphone pics. If you enjoy the Omega video continue to do so as long as it's on the front page and even while it's still in the archives. I'll have more but it won't always be fraternity stuff.

12:24 PM - The bell

I watched this video produced from PBS a few years ago called Morehouse Men. It's a documentary about Morehouse College and we look into the lives of some of the students at Morehouse. One of the scenes you see will take place here at this bell. A guy says that a Morehouse graduate got his degree got his job and left. However, a Morehouse Man will answer this bell whenever it rings.

I was able to check this video out of the library many years ago. If you want to look for it now do so, it's a great video.

3:35 PM - What's Your Travel Personality?

Your Travel Personality Is: Easygoing

When you travel, you're looking for a lot of downtime. Vacations are your chance to recoup.
All you need is a scenic spot and plenty of time on your hands. You'll figure out the rest.
You're not one to make lots of plans when you travel. You just follow whatever path seems right.

9:59 AM - Podium 2

This Good Friday I went over to the closed Morris Brown College to check out their campus. It was made up in time for a movie last year. This podium had a much larger platform last year than it does this year. But most of what I saw here last year is still there.
