didja see it?

Did anybody see me on Atlanta's Channel 5 news yesterday evening? That was supposed to be my Andy Warhol Moment--- my 15 minutes of fame--- and I don't get that station on my cable selection. The guys who filmed my interview said that they would send me a tape of the broadcast (which I hope they DO), but I don't know when that might happen.

I'm just curious about whether I looked like an asshole or not...


I haven't seen it yet, but the Missus TiVo'd you will eventually get a chance to see for yourself whether you showed your ass or not.

I couldn't get it up here; I emailed the station to see if they ever put any of their segments on the web, etc, and here's the response I got:

Hi Lisa,
We don't stream reports on our web site, so I'm afraid you won't be able to see the report on the web. There is a local clipping service that can provide you with a copy, but the fee may be more than you want to spend for a news story. For more information call Track-TV, Inc. at 1-800-949-6397.
Bud Veazey, Assistant News Director
FOX5 Atlanta

So if anyone's got lots of money, they can call the 1-800 number to get a copy. I'm broke. :)

I'm sure you looked fine, dahling...

If Elisson has it on TIVO then theorectically couldn't it be uploaded to one of these video hosting sites like YouTube so we can all see it? Surely one of the Jawja technogeniuses knows how to do this?

I saw it and thought it was rather straightforward.The message seemed to be"be careful if you blog or you might get fired". Rob had maybe 30 seconds of face time...showed him playing his guitar,blogging on computer and mentioned his blog name.They contacted his former employer ( I forget name) but they had no comment. Rob came across as a sympathetic figure I thought.
