So in the realm of News of the Obvious- a post every day for the month of June isn't quite happening, is it? Oh well, this is a start. I am fairly behind on sharing a couple of news items here.
First, there is the radio interview... Ever listen to Studio360 on NPR? Great show.
They were doing an online listener's poll asking if you had the opportunity to quit your job and be an artist full time, would you do it? Of course, I logged on and said I already did it. Apparently they actually read those things. Next thing you know, I am having a little interview with a super nice intern at Studio360. I thought they were just collecting blurbs to share online or on the air... Well, it turned into an actual phone interview with Kurt Anderson! I was nervous- and post interview I was convinced I would be cut from the segment... Somehow I didn't sound as horrible as I thought.
Anyway- here is 1 minute of my eventual 15 minutes of fame: http://studio360.org/episodes/2008/06/20
You can listen to the segment I am in by clicking on the play button under "Artist Survey" on the right side of the screen (I am at about the 3 min mark). In Dallas, the actual show is scheduled to air Sunday at 2pm.
In Show News- I finally finished and delivered my skateboard for the Art of Skateboarding charity auction. The show is tonight- but I am sure it is not too late to get tickets. Here is the info:
