Several months ago, a producer/man about town I know asked me if I'd like to shoot a segment for E! (You know the network, home of the True Hollywood Story and the Kardashians. Don't act like you don't lay in your own filth on gloomy weekends watching marathons.) He said it would be a quick little bumper that would run 100 times a day and no big deal!
I'm in a bit of a "Why say no?! Just say yes! Conquer my fears!" sort of life-phase, so against all my enormous anxieties about appearing on television yammering about something as inane as posing for pictures, I said "Sure! Yes! That sounds like great, silly fun!"
A couple of weeks ago I met Tim (the producer) a charming-as-all-get-out camera dude and Leah Miller (former VJ, host of SYTYCD Canada, infamous BFF of Hilary Duff) at the place I used to work where we laughed for 40 minutes, I made strange and elaborate references to Linda Evangelista (thankfully left on the cutting room floor) and got to talk about Oprah on national television. It all lead to this 60 second snippet and, I must say, I'm kinda thrilled with how it turned out. The editing avoids all my worst angles and the sweet after hours club beats keep it real smooth.
And so, dear readers, I give you my voice and my moving physical body. Two things you've never seen here before. I hope you aren't shocked by my truly homosexual voice or my lanky and wild gesticulations. This is for reals and sadly accurate. And will air up to 5 times a day for the entire month of May on national Canadian television. Wow.
(And thanks go to Tim Chan and Leah for the fun opportunity and for making me feel at-ease during this truly anxiety-ridden experience.)
