Whiskey Media Intern-Watch 2011: Operation Happy Hour

Posted by GlenTennis (3143 posts) -

Have you ever wondered what it takes to make a Whiskey Media happy hour? Well here's your chance to check out a gallery of pre/during/post show images to let you know what's up. (For what exactly is going on in these photos check them out in my image gallery)

This live show was especially chaotic because a few minutes before the show was scheduled to start, the sites went down. On top of this all of our Top Men™ were on an important Top Mission. But as soon as the signal was sent out, they were able to get back to Whiskey HQ to fix the sites so you could all enjoy last week's happy hour.

Cool behind the scenes photos. Who are the two dudes in the last pic of the top row? I don't recognise them.

That studio is so messy. I couldn't deal with all those wires all jumbled up like that.

Vinny should know better than to cross the streams :|

@mracoon: Two fans who emailed Ethan requesting to come watch the live show.

The amount of wires boggles my mind. When you watch the show, it's all nice and neat. The magic of off camera, nice picks. Ethan should be proud of this blog as it has many pictures.

The number of wires on the ground and the amount of scalding hot coffees being delivered around the Whiskey Media offices kind of hint to why there's so much intern turnover.

@Mento: To quote Vin Deisel in Fast Five

"I live my life a quarter mile at a time."

That seems like a very mess up, but there's no denying its effective.

Ethan sent out a Tweet saying if you wanted to visit, shoot him a PM and they'd work out a Friday. 
 
Which is pretty much the coolest thing ever. 
 
And these photos are great. You're such a hard worker, GlenTennis.

I look I'm going supernova AND crazy at the same time.

AHR looks so boss in that chair. 
 
Also, love the frantic hands of the video production crew.

Wow, intense stuff for a superfluously styled program. Reminds me of oscar wilde's daily life.

I believe that's video magic. I'm not in the know, but that's the word on the street.

I would follow you, but I'm already following you. Awesome. What was it like being there?

It was surreal. I've watched a bunch of Happy Hours, but it was weird/awesome seeing it happen before my eyes. Had to bite my tongue during the Screened trivia part though. Technically that was my third visit to the office (first two involved internship interviews) but still got tingles when walking into the office. It was nice of Ethan to invite people to see where the magic happens.

@Fullmetal216: Is Ethan as scary as they say he is? He seems to be in charge, well of interns. So I would guess he acts as such. I like him though, he seems like a drill instructor from the military.

@Claude: He's a really nice guy, though I wouldn't dare cross him. To do so would invoke a wrath rivaling the might of Cthulhu. He's also an eagle scout, which I think means he can summon eagles to his command. I've yet to test that theory.

That's right, he is an Eagle Scout. Shit, that even scares me and I'm thousands of miles away posting on the forums. I've read his tweets and he's also a good farm hand. Crap, don't fuck with Ethan, he's the salt of the earth.

Ethan is a great boss and an even better man.

He totally isn't the kind of person who would read something you posted about him in your blog and lock you in the storage closet for 6 hours while providing only slim jims for sustenance. No... not that kind of person at all...
