So Amandapants has put my involvement with TGTV in cynical terms, placing the over-under at three days (or was it three posts?) but I'm feeling pretty motivated, RSI be damned. One of the cool things about slowly migrating people to my personal blog site - while still giving lots of love to The Bastard Machine - is that over here I have a better sense of numbers, locations, etc., thanks to the cool gizmo that is Google Analytics. Already TGTV has had visitors from Canada, Hong Kong, Japan, Australia and the Netherlands and all across the United States. A pretty good start to what would best be described as a "soft opening," as they say in the restaurant biz. I kind of like this idea that people immediately caught on to - that TGTV will have some bonus material, like those easter eggs we all love so much, and work as a kind of added value site to TBM. Given that, I'll post a couple of bits of "breaking news" right here, right now:
I'll be doing the deconstructions of "The Wire" here on TGTV. Look for that coming up. And for those who missed (or even those who attended) my interview thing at the JCC in SF awhile back, I'm going to do it again in September or October. And more appearances and whatnot will be announced here later. I'm still interested in the flash mob hootenanny to be held on College Ave. somewhere, perhaps in the coming weeks for some holiday wassailing. BYONT (bring your own name tags).
