Ready for My Close-Up

Otakon Press Relations has not yet completely eaten my brain, however, sleep deprivation earlier in the week, thanks to the hot weather and a fussy Kung Fu Panda, did dim the bulb a bit.

I'm still standing (yeah, yeah, yeah).

Found out about this Scott Ridley/Kevin McDonald project while transcribing my afternoon CNN assignment. I think I'll participate. They're asking people to film their day tomorrow and share the footage for an experimental film. Details can be found on the "Life in a Day" YouTube channel.

Sounds like an interesting project. Bummer I'm not still working downtown, as doing the colonial thing in 105 degree heat index could be interesting. Though, had I taken that gig, I would be in the air conditioned Free Quaker meeting house all day - and then none of the tourists would want to leave!

Well, I haven't the ability to record lengthy high-quality video anyhow. My digital camera only allows me to take 60 seconds of video at a time.

Air-conditioned Quaker meeting house? I take it they upgraded from the historical building?

60 seconds at a time might actually be OK. It seems they're more interested in catching glimpses of people's lives. If you're interested, you should read through the project explanation and rules.

I watched the video, but frankly, it smacks of effort! Considering I didn't get to sleep until 6am and just woke up an hour ago, I think it would be wise if I passed. Though, the "What's in your pocket" question I thought would be fun, because it would be for me - what's in my pocketbook. I doubt I could get thru that in 60 seconds! Maybe I'll do that another day - I think my friends would find that more amusing than the general public anyhow.

And yes, the FREEQ (pronounced Freak) on 5th and Arch is Air Conditioned and seats about 100 people. At least when tour groups would come in, they would be on a schedule, so they would eventually be compelled to leave. But others - sometimes it would be interesting but sometimes exhausting for me. You know, more often than not, I had kids want to find out what I had in my basket (the 18th Century equivalent of a purse) when I was in that place than anywhere else. I think they were trying to catch me with something modern. They never did!

Anyway, if you decide to do it - Bravo! And I hope you make the cut!
