I didn’t get an email warning me that it was going to air, but I had set my Tivo to record the Channel 9 News just in case. Turns out that was a smart move… As I scanned through the 5:30 broadcast last night I didn’t see any mention of my interview. But at the very end of his piece, John Matarese mentioned he would be talking about buying factory direct on the 11:00 News. So, I told Tivo to grab that too. Sure enough, I was on the air. I ripped the segment and posted it onto youtube. I’ve now used up a whopping total of 1 minute and 49 seconds of my allotted 15 minutes of fame. Only 13 minutes, 11 seconds left.

  1. Well that was a good 1:49. I forgot that you had cut your hair. You look like a little missionary. But you really need to shave, or Jesus might get mad at you.
    Keep up the good fight.

  2. Yeah, Debi now likes my hair, even though just about everyone else liked it long (my mother excluded). I just can’t bring myself to shave anymore – it seems like such a waste of time to shave every day. I figure with a full beard I can keep from shaving for a few days at time (I have to shave my neck a bit, you know, the odd hair…). Shaving sucks.

    As for the anti-capitalism rant, they definitely cut it. That and all the foul language. Too bad, too, because that was the most eloquent part. It was also the part where I stuck it to “the man” and didn’t sound like such a gullible sap… Oh well, TV air time is TV air time I guess… 😉 But I still was able to wear my Mozilla Thunderbird shirt – woohoo! Go opensource!
