Absolutely Not Your Monkey

I got this email the other day:

Dear Paogao,

We are creating a TV pilot about blogging. We want to bring this phenomenon of personal expression to television for the very first time, and have been scouring the web for appropriate sites. Your web site seems like a potentially great fit for the show. If you would like to be a part of our pilot, you can do so by submitting a video that encapsulates you and your blog.

Whatever you want to say and show in your video is fine. The key is to capture the essence of your blog in video format, and if it’s interesting enough, we’ll include it. If this is something that you want to participate in, please go to our web site for more information, and follow the instructions:


Thank you so much.

I don’t get it, personally. A video about my blog? Isn’t that like saying “We’d like you to compose a piece of music about your book”? They’re two different media, after all.

Plus, and I hate to break it to you, but, well…it’s a blog. And you spelled Poagao wrong.

However, speaking of videos, Dean, Mindcrime and I made some good progress today on the Lady X project. No details yet; let it suffice to say we’re ahead of schedule at the moment. I think it’s going to be good, and at the very least a lot of fun to do. Mindcrime’s Mind is taking a cue from the Depth of Fashion that is this site by including Chinese on his blaaahg today. Will wonders ever cease?
