I actually heard Kevin Smith use that term on his "An Evening with Kevin Smith" DVDs, so I can't take credit for coining anything. But it's very applicable to what I'm about to do which is to promote 1) the SIDEBAR NATION web/podcast, and 2) my INTERVIEW for the guys therein.
Like I've mentioned before, they (as in Dwight ans Swain) are a couple of classy guys who are are just into what most of my buddies are into: art, comics, movies, cartoons, and all of geekdom/pop culture in general. Go visit by clicking on the link I've highlighted above. And when you do, keep in mind that my voice isn't very.... um... $1.98 for the first minute $.99 each additional minute, you know? So please take it easy on me. Believe me, when I listened to it, I was thinking of that one funny scene from Disney's EMPEROR'S NEW GROOVE where Eartha Kitt's character Yzma (now having turned herself into a small little kitten), in the middle of a frantic, tyrannical rant and suddenly having a moment of self awareness and says, "Is that my voice? Is that *MY* voice?! Oh, well." It's kind of like that for me.
So what does that have anything to do with the Poison Ivy image I've posted above? Nothing. You'll get over it; I believe in you.
Anyway, go visit the site, listen to me talk on and on and on and on about myself (See? This is where the 'press whore' part comes in!). While you're doing that, I'd like to thank Messrs. Dwight Clark and Swain Hunt once again for letting me participate, for their very well researched set of questions, and for being gracious enough to laugh at my stupid jokes. Much respect, sirs. I owe you guys a bundle.
