So here's the plan. I was recently followed on twitter by a group that does live tattoo session broadcasting. Their idea of broadcasting live tattoo sessions online gave me an idea. Maybe I should do a live session so anybody following the blog could easily see the ink going on me after they spent an entire year following PRBY. It seemed like a good idea but not greatly interesting. I figure people would maybe tune in and watch for a moment or two. Then, they would promptly say, "Yep, that's Paul getting Latin bird names tattooed on him." followed quickly by, "This is boring, what's in it for me?" Followed even quicker by closing their browser window. My writer partner Adam Bailey had the great idea of making it an interview about the film and big year. Now there was suddenly something for people to tune in to. I tossed the idea out on twitter and Facebook yesterday to see if any of you would be interested in that. So far interest has been pretty good.
So, that's what I plan to do. Now comes the incredible hassle of organizing it. I need a venue with fast Internet, a web cam, a person to conduct the interview, someone to monitor my Facebook and twitter account while I sit in the hot seat and someone to help get the word out there. I hope a live tattoo interview will be a first for both birding and tattooing.
Anyway, I have heard from a few people but not enough to make a big enough audience to have an hours worth (half hour might do) of questions. Questions can be about anything; birding, tattoos, me, my family, my job, you, anything at all. I'll strive to answer any question anyone might have. They don't have to be flattering, just interesting. I have a very thick skin (pardon the pun) from working in the advertising business.
To help me gauge interest level, please, please, please, please leave a comment here (even if you usually don't comment) on this blog post if you'd tune in to the session with questions (save the questions for the moment though so I can't prepare answers). Again I say please?
Thanks for the support you've given me. You're the main reason I keep this going.
