mad TV

so, the big montrose artwalk promo TV taping took place this morning in santa monica..chuck was saintly enough to chauffeur me for this hellish rush hour commute, as i was much too preoccupied with my deep breathing exercises and desperately trying not to assume the fetal position.

i couldn't help but laugh at how disorganized it all seemed, though. from the moment we walked in and greeted the receptionist, who didn't seem to recall any taping involving art in the schedule, to the 'make it up as you go' production team. honestly, i thought artists were flighty.

it boiled down to this:
12 artists in a small studio interviewed for approximately 3 minutes each by an overly enthusiastic, albeit enviably tanned woman named janet. how can you possibly distill your ambition, your passion, your LIFE, into 180 seconds? i chalked it up as one of those purely campy moments in life. it could lead to nothing. it could lead to everything, but one never knows unless they try..and plus i can impress mom..that's all that counts, right?

Re: cool
i am really glad i did it. actually, it was more of a 'becky can you do this?' kinda step for me. i'm so damn shy! so, even if it goes nowhere career wise, i feel like a can pat myself on the back for following through..

thanks for your encouragement!

WOW!
Muchos congratos, Beckyos! :) That's pretty damn awesome!!! And, of course, the next question is: where the heck do we get to feast our peepers on it!? Are you gonna post it online, perhaps (hint, hint! :)?

swung back around to read this, what a cool deal! wish i could see it out here in the hinters, but i don't think they play california stuff in the midwest for at least two or threee years; by that time you'll have probably forgotten all the little people... but, ahhh.... you must be tickled pink! i know i am! yea, becky!!!

Re: brian
YAH! like i could ever forget YOU!!!!
thanks for the nod, though. yeah, don't think you'll be seeing it in your neck of the woods. it's a promo for a local art walk here. i'll just have to figure out a way to post it on the internet. heh heh.
