Named Night Online News Editor for The Augusta Chronicle in February 2010. Responsible for laying out story priority and positioning on the site Wednesday-Sunday nights. So if you like what you see, thank me, and if you don't like what you see, let me know. Started working as an online producer at The Augusta Chronicle in August of 2006. Favorite news memories include meeting James Brown at the 2006 Toy Giveaway days before he died, live blogging the 2009 Masters tournament from the media center at Augusta National and anytime someone in power got in trouble because we caught them doing something they weren't supposed to be doing.

Ohio State marching band at it again

Remember that time the Ohio State marching band was featured in this space for its video game halftime show? It's back. 

 

On Saturday, the band did a show featuring movie music, and animated it. Superman flies out of a phone booth to prevent a building collapse. The Lord of the Rings eye. Harry Potter flies on a broom. Dinosaur from Jurassic Park eats some guy. 

 

It's solid stuff. This, on top of last week's Michel Jackson tribute, featuring a moonwalking MJ, complete with white glove. 

 

It seems their band has figured out the formula to keep people interested in halftime.

 

1) Play music people recognize.

2) Make shapes people recognize. 

3) Add some fireworks. 

 

I wonder if it's starting to affect their halftime concessions sales revenue, those stands were packed.
