The good folks at Paste Magazine were kind enough to host the Wren’s Nest Publishing Co. students on a tour of their offices once again. You think they would learn.
As is his habit, Editor-in-Chief Josh Jackson graciously showed us around, which was great. The students, as is their habit, kept a healthy distance. A good call, since Josh is absolutely the meanest person I know.*
We stopped in the offices of MetaLeap Design, who do all the graphic design for Paste, but also for other people, too. They’re nice like that.
Here are the students with their futures (fingers crossed!) ahead of them: the interns! Doesn’t it look glamorous?!
Our editors had a lot of questions for Paste’s Editors, all of which they graciously answered. This is probably when Associate Editor Rachael said that interviewing people made her want to die.
A different view, this time including Editors Austin and Michael.
Paste, go figure, receives a lot of CDs. Many of them end up here, and some are even on shelves!
They even listen to them sometimes!
Paste Multimedia Producer Kevin told the students about the time he met some dudes who were cleaning up trash at a music festival. They handed him their demo CD. Kevin had previously vowed to listen to every CD he was handed by a human, and so he listened.
The result? The world now knows about The Low Anthem! (P.S. Every time Kevin tells that story, he’s handed many CDs. And he still listens to every one. What a mensch!)
Everyone who performs at Paste signs this wall. It’s neat.
Here’s Rachael enjoying a token of our appreciation, courtesy of The Cookie Studio. Yes, they are that big, and yes, they are that good.
Thanks again to the staff of Paste for sacrificing their time for the sake of our students’ bragging rights. See y’all next summer!
