My 30 Minutes of Fame
Dear, sweet fans – here’s an opportunity to hear yours truly chattering away about art like an elf on crack. Yesterday I was interviewed by CBC Radio’s Sheryl MacKay for this weekend’s North by Northwest program. Was I excited? Oh, just a little…
I think it went well. It was certainly fun. Sheryl has a way of listening and looking at you like you are the most interesting person in the world. I felt very comfortable and competent.
Of course I experienced the “Doh! I shoulda mentioned this…I shoulda said that!” about two hours after the fact, but that just means I’ll have new things to talk about in the next interview (she’s interested in seeing what I’m up to in a year and maybe doing a remote from my studio (!!!). Very damn cool.)
The spot airs this Sunday morning, Feb. 1, 8:30am to 9am. It will also be available to download as a podcast from the CBC website and will be up there “forever”.
Here’s a question for you: if I get 30 minutes of fame, does it mean I have to give 15 back at some point?
