Help this editrix make herself a cool t-shirt

A co-worker of mine is the librarian at the publishing house where I work. She found some librarian "career girl" novels on the net and showed them to me for a laugh. I suggested she take a cover image to a T-shirt shop and have a shirt made. She loved the idea and is going to do it with this image, and put the hilarious excerpt from the book on the back. Now I'm jealous and want a similar shirt that relates to my job. I'm an editor. I doubt they had "career girl" pulp novels about editing back in the day, so what equally cool/kitschy images could I put on my front that relate to editing?

What's the best Digital Video solution for filming Web tutorials?

I'm in need of expert video equipment and editing software recommendations. I need to purchase a videocam primarily for recording tutorials. 50% of the shooting will be in an office setup focused mainly on the speaker sitting at a desk, 50% will be in a shop filming welding type machinery.

BELS certification: what's the deal?

I'm interested in becoming certified by the Board of Editors in the Life Sciences. Their Web site is rather cryptic: apparently they only send you the particulars of what the exam entails once you have applied to take it. Has anyone taken this exam or known someone who has? What's it like? Moreover, do you have a sense of how professionally useful the certification is at all? [more inside]

Excellent disjointed writing

Can you think of any examples of "disjointed" writing -- writing with abrupt transitions -- that works? Faulkners Sound and Fury is a good example but shorter pieces are better for my purposes. Can be fiction or non-fiction. [more inside]

How can I come up with work samples and get this job?

I'm applying for a part-time copy editing position at a local paper. They're asking for ten work samples, but the thing is, I haven't really done anything professionally. Even better, I don't have all that much experience in journalism. (A little bit of work with the high school paper is it.) What can I do to overcome my lack of experience and get this job?

Video Editing System - purchase advice?

Aside from price, are there any other reasons why I should not buy a Mac Mini for video editing? I want to learn how to edit video and maybe put together some short films. I can spend $1000-$1300. I've heard the defacto standard is Final Cut Pro. I probably don't need that immediately but if it's the standard i'd like to work up to it. I have two old PCs but no Mac experience.

Command Line Video Editing?

I'm looking for a tool which will allow me to cut MPEG2's from the command line (or programmatically otherwise). Either Windows or Linux/BSD. I've looked through a bunch of programs found via Google, but none seem to work without their GUI's. Bonus if the MPEG2 streams are cut at the GOP marker or if it re-encodes the GOP's at the cuts. Otherwise it'll get messy. Free is preferred, but pay would be fine too as long as it works.
