EDITOR'S NOTE: Fresh off a three year managerial stint, your friendly neighborhood lenslinger is back on the street and under heavy deadline. As the numbing effects of his self-imposed containment wear off, vexing reflections and pithy epistles are sure to follow...

Pilgrimage Imminent...


Now that passage is booked, I guess I can start talking about the B-Roll Bash - that drunken summit of professional TV News photographers held every year in oh so wholesome Las Vegas! Some of you may remember the spotty coverage that resulted from our 2006 trip, in which Team Lenslinger first tripped the showroom floor of NAB, an annual gathering of more than 100 thousand TV geeks from all over the globe. Well, his year we're making another pilgrimage to that neon blight - not so much to have ourchains yanked by cheesy sales reps (we ain't buyin' nothin') - but to break bread and liquor bottle seals with the cream of the photog crop. And what a cast! Not only are The Mighty Weave and I trekking West, but the one and only Turd Polisher will make his Vegas debut (drenched in sequins, of course). Once convened, we'll lead the group in quiet reflection, cadge all kinds of worthless freebies and shoot a few cheesy videos for a certain website! then on Monday April 14th, we'll all put on our leather and head over to the Harley-Davidson Cafe, where the towering Kevin Johnson will no doubt insist we get all sloppy. Join us, won't you? I promise stimulating conversation for the first thirty minutes, followed by a lightning round of clumsy high-fives and perhaps even some photog karaoke. Of course if you cannot make it, simply twist some tinfoil around your rabbit ears and point 'em this way - as I'll be babbling on about the matter long after the jet lag and hangovers have dissipated.

After all, I don't get out much.

All Crown, all the time. I can feel the hangover now.

I had a major out of town assignment in Washington DC and in New York being pulled together for the same week as NAB.

It has gone down in flames.

I may show up after all.
