GR 1097 features:
Societies section edited and designed by me as always. The Fringe reviews were the third most read article on the GR site this week also.
Cartoon about the Google Ads fiasco the papers have drummed up.
Politics article on the death of Martin McGuinness.
I've also been to a great play:
Killology at the Sherman is fantastic and comes fully recommended.
Proud of some work I did for the new Gair Rhydd.
Louis did the cartoon. But it's great. Fantastic. Have a look.
Meanwhile, I interviewed Lamorna, the winner of the VP Societies election campaigns, about her plans. Pretty good. Pretty juicy in places too. And some damn good editing and page design AS ALWAYS. I also finally put my Morris Does Morris article in- did mean to include a subtitle of "Finally all you've ever wanted and more" but the Global article pushed it out. It's not a society, but it's also not really a sport. Nothing wrong with including local clubs, it's all fun for students, isn't it?
Also, I remembered that I never posted my Nintendo Switchmas article on here. That's pretty good, though obviously pretty outdated at this point.
Also weird: I never linked GR 1091 or 1092 on here. Think I was just freaking out on the run up to elections... one track mind. Even more weirdly 1092 isn't on issuu, so I will chase that up.
Set myself a challenge for the upcoming final GR of '16-17:
GET AN ARTICLE IN EVERY SECTION.
This has probably never been done. The hard one will be Taf-Od. How do I say "Sorry for my broken Welsh" in Welsh?
It also includes the use of some journalistic tools I've not attempted previously- stay tuned.
You'll actually find two of my cartoons in this week's Gair Rhydd. One is in the usual spot on page 2, using the frame of the Oscar mixup for a cheap shot at Gerry Adams (he he, shot). The other is at the top of my 1000 word article on the elections and how to reconsider the way you think about them- I certainly have! I'm proud of this article. I also interviewed the Jailbreak winners for this week's Societies, and Spotlit Stitch Soc. As well as editing the rest of the section obviously.
Meanwhile, in Quench, I wrote two pieces for Video Games, one on Virtual Reality and one on game pricing. I also drew the back page doodle and contributed to the museums piece.
