Ok you know what? I think people, particularly publishers, should keep in touch more often. I was in the bookstore today casually going through magazines and picked up the January 2005 edition of Popular Communications. I am scanning through the articles when all of a sudden it suddenly registers "hey wait, that's MY name there!" I turn to page 60 and there is my picture and short essay regaling the tale of "how I got into radio."
Not as random as it sounds really: Pop Com does a thing every month where the publish the best "how I got into radio" essay. I sent in a little essay I wrote in a half hour one boring day last October, recieved a form letter response, and promptly forgot about it until today. I guess I should've recieved an issue by now but my college address is the one they got and I haven't been there about a week.
Still, that's one way to recieve a jolt! :o

Congratulations.

Long ago, I was pictured and quoted in an article in Popular Computing magazine, I think it was, but they put a co-worker's name on my picture, and about half of what I was claimed to say in the interview came from the same co-worker -- which was fine with me because he was a better extemporaneous speaker.

Does that count as my 15 minutes of fame?

That rules Andromeda! I want to pick up some random (or not so random :wink: ) magazine and see myself in there!

Heh, with my luck the magazine I would be in would be something like Nutjob Quarterly

Yep! As of right now only my mom and sis in my family know about it because they were in the bookstore. Then I decided to keep it a secret and give the magazine to my dad as a Christmas present because I talked about him a bit in it. I think he'll like it. 8)

Speaking of NutJob Quarterly, Did you see the article about me where I explained how I helped God form the Universe? It was a great reading adventure. Especially where I introduced PlayDoh!

Where can we get our autographed copies? How about the glossy 8x10s for your fan club? :D

Hey way to go, that's very 8)
