Flu Bug & MTV
I think the stomach flu bug has finally caught up with me. I left work early today and have been on the couch with a stomach ache and a general feeling of unwellness. Is that a word? Probably not. I'm missing Quincy Troupe and Albert Goldbarth tonight at Poetry At Tech, which sucks because I wanted to hear them.
The folks at MTV have been reading my American Idol recaps and contacted me yesterday about recapping their show Rock the Cradle, which airs on Thursday nights. This is the show where the kids of famous musicians and singers compete Idol-style for a record deal. I haven't been watching the show (tonight is episode three), but I told them I would watch and see if it was something worth writing about on my blog. I was going to ask if they had actually read my recaps, but they apparently liked my snarky humor. This is proof positive that any publicity is good publicity. I'm not exactly MTV's target demographic, but...hey, this might be fun.
UPDATE: Watched Rock The Cradle. This show is a hot, hot, hot mess. And I do mean fierce, hot, tranny mess. MTV might not want me to recap again after I post my review tomorrow. Feeling a bit better and off to bed.
