This blog’s intended to exist during the spring and summer of 2011, bridging the spring and fall semesters at Webster University. Unless, of course, some generous soul cares to pop for a continuance of this project, at which point… yeah. No need to pull the plug, then. If such a person exists, let’s talk.
The site’s all about South City. Text. Photos. Videos. Hopefully, we’ll get beyond some of the cliches and media stars, in the process.
Unless noted, the author is myself, Thomas Crone. I’m using this blog as a way to get my photography, video and audio skills whipped into a semblance of competence. To that degree, be kind, as the digitally native kids are already outpacing me in the technical arts.
Speaking of which, specialty video work will be provided by Tyler DePerro, a talented undergrad at Webster University. He’ll be punching up short documentaries as the spring fades into summer and will be joined by some friends from the School of Communications at Webster, as well. I thank Professor Art Silverblatt for signing off on Tyler’s involvement.
Another quick bit of thankfulness to Brian Marston, who helped me transition this blog into reality.
Ah, yes, the title’s inspired from a song, “Southside of Luck,” from Fragile Porcelain Mice’s “Amigo de Fuego.” They’re Belleville boys, but I think they understand the South City aesthetic just fine.
Not much more to say as a primer. Let’s get to some content…
