God. There is a stagnant melancholy in the office today. Why are we here, just to get thrown out the door? Where do the priorities of Chicago public access lie when they serve gourmet food at its board meetings?
Many things are wrong there, most too complicated to write in a simple blog by a lower-totem pole kid. One that concerns me the most, however, is their target audience. They are far past the days where television should be used in a hopeful attempt at advocacy(that's why we have the internet). In turn, public access channels across the nation need to restructure their communications offices. Chicago in particular. They can no longer afford to pour out all their energies into the non-profit sector; instead, PEG should be focusing their attentions to the lost and lonely indie children of the future. "What the hell is public access," people will ask me consistently, and that's ludicrous.
Something needs to be done before the melancholy turns into full force depression.
