AOTS -- TV Appearance

Video: I was on Attack of the Show on G4 yesterday, talking about the microfame article. I tried to get through all eight steps, but tv moves so fast! Anyway, the very important footnote: I'm wearing a t-shirt in the segment that shows only two letters (ON) because of the jacket. But I took a photo of it, so you can know my stance on the self-awareness of being on tv talking about microfame.

There's a really rich irony to the fact that the guy telling us about how to achieve "microfame" is wearing a shirt that says, "phoney"....And what looks like an uncoiled ribbon around his neck. What the hell is that?

Why does he keep interrupting you with his own "clever" observations? Does he come from the George Stroumboulopoulos school of delivering painful-to-watch TV interviews?

When I watch it in now, it's actually a decent length. But sitting there in real time, it felt like a nanosecond. So I think Kevin was trying to hustle me along -- not really his fault.

The sartorial decisions? Completely my fault.

The last time I was on Attack of the Show was last year, to talk about Twitter.

Self-aggrandizement in the service of self-deprecation in the service of self-aggrandizement is...meta-propaganda? You're a nesting doll of solipsism, rexy.

Resisting the urge to Twitter: Solipsism is my middle name!

oh man, that is why TV is sooo dead. No time given to a topic at all.

Then again youtube is basically just the format of TV comedy clip tape shows magnified ;)

If you become microfamous for talking about microfame, does that make you metamicrofamous?

And do you get to be in the next Weezer video?
