New Dec Stucks on VCAM

Stuck in VT
December Episodes 107-110
Airing January 2009
Channel 15, VCAM

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.
