almost famous

WELL! I got a call this afternoon, something about the Ithaca Journal, their website, and a video interview of ME. I said come over, and prayed they were not axe murderers.
The newspaper is sponsoring college students to do a journalistic interview with a working artist. The final video cut will be put on the Ithaca Journel website in a couple of weeks. These two 20 year olds were amazing--lights, camera, interview, action, now back to edit. They were so capable and smart, they could have been already working TV newsmen.

Small potatoes, no fame, but a little bit of fun.

Fame depends entirely on how many sites your friends post the video link to. ;-)

Of course, you must give us the link when your video hits the website. Then we can say, "Oh, Gary? Sure, we knew him BEFORE he became famous."
