4/11/09: Once a year, professional sheep shearers gather at Shelburne Farms to teach shearer wannabes the tricks of the trade. With 40 sheep being shorn by novices and pros alike, it is an exciting day around the barnyard and a symphony of bleats ensues from the 80 gamboling lambs and their parents.
The song in the end credits is an Australian folk song:
If I dont shear a tally before I go
My shears and stone in the river I'll throw
And I'll never open Sawbees or take another blow
And prove I'm a ryebuck shearer

Lordy, I can barely keep track of it all. Between Facebook status updates, learning TweetDeck and Twitter, producing my weekly vlog Stuck in VT for Seven Days and posting it to Facebook, YouTube, Blip and VCAM and re-running my cable access show The Deadbeat Club - which way is up and which way is down?
OK, this I know, tonight you can see some fresh Stucks on VCAM where they look much nicer than all pixelated on the internets:
Stuck in Vermont

Tuesdays @ 9:30am
Playing in February/March 2009:
Champlain Island Farmer's Market, Obama-rama, The One Fashion Event, Peace & Justice Center's 30th B-Day, Mayoral Debate 7Dtv
And also, a "new" rerun of The Deabeat Club started last night. I watched it with my mom and we had a hoot. As mortifying as it can be watching yourself blab like a mad hatter, DBC has been an interesting way for me to judge days gone by.
I get to hear myself talking about my dream job making a weekly arts and culture video featuring local VTers and then voila, 2 years later, I am living the dream baby!
Last night was an episode from the early days of Stuck in VT when I was trying to figure out what the hell I was doing. Stucks on the tremendous 07 VDay blizzard, Cindy Sheehan and Sonic Youth - I look back on those days fondly since I am now on Episode 118. Speaking of, I better get back to work. Like the rest, this episode refuses to edit itself.

Valentine's Day can be barf-inducing when you are single. Since I am generally of the single-variety, I have gotten used to that yearly barfy aftertaste. So I was pleasantly surprised this year when this dreaded day didn't suck?! Wha...?!
For starters, Suzanne the Cake Fairy delivered some tasty treats to a lucky few (I'm not worthy) and I promptly ate the entire thing! Yum! I hearts you Suzanne and I am so glad your love of Valentine's Day doth spilleth over onto my plate!
And then sweet Katie left roses on my stoop?!?! Flowers, pour moi!?! Crawford got so excited that he knocked them over. Take me back to Puerto Rico Kate, the ocean misses us!
And then there were some thoughtful cards that are now sitting atop my fridge, and even some emails and texts from far off loved ones.
Damn, it turns out that you can be a solitary old maid AND enjoy this stoopid ass commercial holiday too?! Thank you modern life, thank you.

And a new rerun of The Deadbeat Club playing this month as well! It is the New Year's episode from 2007, what fun. It features Suzanne M0nroe trying to hijack my show and lots of talk about the end of the world. Wow, that sounds just like this year! Apparently, I always think about the end of the world when a new year arrives?! Little did we know in 2007 just how impressively shitty 2009 would be...eek.
In 2007 I started vlogging for the first time but had not quite gotten the format down. Those early vlogs were really long, free form and experimental - basically me babbling. And in this episode I talk about how I wanted to make a well-structured vlog in which I interviewed VTers about their lives and what do you know? I did it. ;)
It is always nice watching old DBC and seeing how much has changed, especially when I am feeling like I move in slow mo and never get anywhere.
In the 2 years since I made that episode, I've produced 110 segments of Stuck in VT, interviewed just about everyone in town, got featured on Boston's The Chronicle and written about in the Freeps, not to mention having Stuck viewed all over the world. I got my dream job at Seven Days, bought a weird old house, and am continually excited by the work I do for the very first time in my life.
Who knows what 2009 will bring, but please let Mad Max be a way down the road. I still have to tile the front porch and figure out how to fit a ping pong table in the basement. I have plans, so many.
