But I Thought You Had A Major Orchestra...?

Me, trying to navigate the website of the Cincinnati Enquirer:

Your search - classical music review - did not match any documents.

  • Make sure all words are spelled correctly.
  • Try different keywords.
  • Try more general keywords.
  • Try fewer keywords.
Really, Cincinnati?

What's with the extra dot?

Eh, someday perhaps I'll learn HTML.

Fake higher up: "I know! Instead of getting rid of our critic colleagues, how 'bout we keep 'em, but give 'em a 'blog?' That way, hardly anyone will know they're there, but they get to keep writing. And the best part: let's make their pay-scale based on how many hits their blog gets."

Fake board room: "Huzzah!"

I'm probably making all that up, but that's how it seems from the outside looking in.

Heh. Try "more general" keywords my butt.

I forgot which SF publication it was--either the Examiner or the Chron, but one of these publications has or had a really silly tagging system that was utterly useless. They would go and tag something specific like "Das Rheingold"(sp?), which, it's one thing if the publication plans to have 30 articles on Das Rheingold, but if you have at most 2 articles, it's really not a terribly useful tag. What would be far more useful would be a more general opera or classical music tag, because in both of these publications, (as I've mentioned in the past), it's impossible to find classical music reviews. One has to sift through the annoying crap about Brittany Spears and Paris Hilton to get to it.

(Btw, I think the extra dot is probably from an extra < li >< /li > and possibly a < ul >< /ul > (sans spaces, which I added in, b/c otherwise blogger refused to add my comment) tag. You can probably click on your html editor and get rid of it and that should do the trick. Blogger is sometimes stupid about generating html code.)

I've said it before and I'll say it again: If I had a house in Cincinnati and a second house in Hell, I'd live in Hell and rent out the Cincinnati place.

Seriously, fuck that city. After living there for three years, I'd sooner move to Darfur than go back to that shithole.


In all seriousness, Cincinnati does suck.
