Hi, I'm The New Guy

Posted By on Thu, Sep 6, 2012 at 10:00 AM

Hey Weekly Rangers, I'm David Mendez.

You may remember me from such Range posts as "Chuck Norris' Family Claims Obama Re-election Will Bring 1,000 Years Of Darkness," or "Geraldo Rivera, Semi-Officially U of A's Most Embarrassing Alumnus?" Earlier this year, I interned with this fine publication, where The Powers That Be were impressed enough to ask me to take care of The Range as They searched for someone to replace departed Web Producer and Range Overlord Dan Gibson.

As it turns out, I'm that someone.

What you've seen over the past few weeks is much of what you'll be getting in the future: a potpourri of news, politics and the arts; stories about Tucsonans doing awesome things; criticism of those who deserve it; dumb jokes; and the usual top-quality posts from the Weekly's fine lineup of staffers, contributors and interns.

On top of that, we've got a number of fun changes coming down the pipeline — the most prominent being the forthcoming launch of Tucson Weekly's yet-to-be-named music blog (mentioned here and here) — which you'll be learning more about in the coming weeks.

But remember folks: I'm here as much for you (and the glory of blogging!) as you are for me (and the chance to yell at someone on the internet). If there's something you're itching to see, hear or read about, please mention so in the comments. Even better, send an email to either our mailbag or to me directly.

Thanks for giving me the chance to be here, folks. Now, let's have some fun.
