So, tonight I went to the Nashville blogger meet-up, also known as An Evening with Mr. Roboto, and it was fun. At first I thought I was going to throw up I was so nervous, what with the meeting strangers and all, and as soon as I arrived I did a television interview. WKRN interviewed me for a spot about the gathering, which aired later tonight at 10 p.m. I talked to the reporter for about (what seemed like) 20 minutes and he asked me some really great questions. He seemed to have done his research. Then they aired just one sentence of what I said.
They did, however, air my web address and did this nice scroll-y thing with the camera showing my site. Which is radical.
I may be able to get a file of it for the blog soon for ya'll to see. UPDATE: Thanks to Ryland and t3poh, I now have the interview video available for download! [And here is a .mp4 version in case .avi doesn't work for ya.]
Okay, so I looked at the pictures I took at the blogger meet-up and they were all totally crappy. I opened them up in Photoshop and played with the contrast and color balance and let me tell you, it wasn't good. It was too dark by the time I arrived not to use the flash which made everyone looked stunned and evil, what with the red eyes and all. The ones taken without a flash were far too dark to work, and so in the end I decided to post none of them. I managed to make Nashville's attractive blogger population look pretty hideous. Double chins and shiny foreheads abounded.
It was great to meet everyone, even though I didn't. I got there late, which was dumb, and so I didn't get a chance to talk to Busy Mom or the Homeless Guy or Paul Chenowith or Blake. I did get a chance to talk with Tim Morgan and the Saucy Librarian, both of whom are just as hilarious in person. When a fire engine went tearing down Hillsboro Road in front of the bar Tim yelled, "Hey Channel 2, real news! That way!"
I look forward to the next event almost as much as I look forward to Mr. Roboto's follow-up post coming this afternoon.
