Big giant head

I owe a link here. The Sole Proprietor took our Mojave story and ran with it, crafting a fine, fine spin-off of Hunter S. Thompson's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, featuring Steve and myself on our way to The Booth. It's really well done, and really worth your time. You should read it.

As I told the Sole Prop: "I feel as though the good Doctor himself had written about me.  Finally, I am a part of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas!

Life as a fictional character. Hmm, not bad...

Well, it's official. Or it will be in about 12 hours: Steve and I are celebrities. In Scotland, anyway.

Among the many readers of the Mojave Phone Booth page was a gentleman who does a weekly show on entertaining websites for BBC Radio Scotland. He liked the phone booth story, thought it fell under the heading of "entertaining," and he wants to interview us on his show. Clearly, he needs to get out of the recording booth. (And into the Mojave Booth!)

Who was it that said "Any publicity is good publicity"? I don't know either, but Steve and I are adopting the saying. We're media whores; we're doing the interview. The details on whether our $1,000,000 speaking fee will be paid in cash or coupons haven't been sorted out yet, but we're going forward anyway on faith.

Want to hear us on the air? Move to Scotland, I guess. That's the sure-fire way to do it. I don't know if BBC Radio Scotland broadcasts on the net or not, but if they do we'll be on tomorrow (Friday) morning at about 11:15 a.m. Scotland time. That works out to be 3:15 a.m. California time. I don't know what that works out to for your time; you'll have to do your own math.

See you on the radio!
