now hear this

I was recently asked if I would be willing to consent to an interview on the new "Art and Soul of North Texas" podcast. According to Shelly, the host of the show, the interview should air sometime over the summer. She's currently putting together interview questions and a list of topics for us to discuss, so if you have anything you'd like to hear about I'd recommend you email her directly.

all we do we do 4 foo

Thanks to the efforts of Broadway Bistro and the Insert Art Here team, we managed to rouse a small but very interested attendance, raise a bit of money for a charity in need and replace a fair amount of our bodily fluids with fine wines.

Tom Pierson, one of the co-owners of the bistro, popped by my booth with this suggestion for alternative signage for next year's event:

I'm still wondering whether or not he intended for that sign to read "Will Work 4 Foo"


I am not one to revise history, so allow me to clarify it.

It has come to my attention that a couple of the artists involved in this event assumed the comments above in some way imply that they were drinking at a charity event hosted by a wine bar.

For the record, I was definitely drinking. Proudly so, in point of fact.

You see, the reason I personally racked up a three digit bar tab over the 10 hours of the event was that I knew that a percentage of every drop I purchased for myself, my friends and my clients was going to be donated to charity.

It was, after all, the point of the event.

So yes, I'm a lush. And no, I don't feel or imply that anyone else is. And this lush is as pleased as punch (or wine, as the case seems to be) that his not being a teetotaler bought a pile school supplies for children in need.

art and soul update

If you remember a few posts back, I mentioned that I was invited to be a guest on an upcoming episode of The Art and Soul of North Texas podcast. I recently got an email from Shelly Niebuhr, the podcast's host, asking if I knew any Mac-using gurus interested in giving her a hand producing the show.

If you are looking for a geeky way to contribute to the arts community, pop by the Art and Soul of North Texas website for details.
