OK. There’s really no danger here. No threats, you can all go about your business. Unless your names are Charles Osgood, Matt Lauer, George Stephanopoulos, Jon Stewart (again!), or Joe Scarborough. Yes, that’s right. I’ve expanded my scope and my sights are set on all of you. George, think how good it would be for […]Read More No one is safe. Well, actually all are but five and you know who you are.
Back in December, I started calling out Jonathan Liebowitz, oops sorry, (you can take the boy out of the neighborhood, but…) Jon Stewart of The Daily Show fame to cover my photo-documentary book Arn? Narn. and the plight of Newfoundlanders. So far he has successfully avoided responding to my posts, tweets, (yes, I tweet now! […]Read More You think this is over? It’s over when I say it’s over.
If anyone ever wants to move to another country and apply for citizenship of said country, there are myriad hoops to jump through, not to mention the legal fees involved. I know as I’ve aimlessly looked into it. Over the past few years, as Arn? Narn. became less of an idea, dream, and project and […]Read More Arn? Narn. nation.
The holidays, formerly at our throats, are now behind us. My trip to NYC last week went well, but still no invitation from Jon Stewart of The Daily Show to appear on behalf of Arn? Narn. So, now it’s time to resume my effort to get exposure for my book. Invoking an old Newfoundland tradition, […]Read More This is serious.
It’s been said that timing is everything. That said, I can save you, Jon Stewart of The Daily Show, some money because I’ll be in NYC on Monday and Tuesday of next week. Put me on the show, dammit! You won’t have to pay for airfare or lodgings even. I promise to be entertaining. Really. […]Read More OK, Jon, I’m just down the street…
Now that the holidays are mercifully behind us, we can get back to our everyday routines no matter how mundane they may be. If you’re lucky, and I believe I am, mundane is not a word you usually use to describe your days. With that in mind, my effort to get exposure for Arn? Narn. […]Read More Game on…
Now we all know Jon Stewart is busy with the last week of the show for 2012. And we also know there have been Jon Stewart sightings in NYC stores and New Jersey malls purchasing Hanukkah gifts for his friends and family. (Hey, Jon?! How about a few copies of my photo-documentary book, Arn? Narn […]Read More Report from the trenches.
As Sherlock Holmes was fond of saying, “Watson, the game is afoot.” And so it is, so it is. I am encouraging any and all of this blog’s readers to help me in my quest, not for the grail, but something equally hard to achieve: a guest spot on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. […]Read More I warned you, Stewart. But, noooo, you didn’t want to listen.
If this were the 1940’s or some such bygone era, the newsreels would be filled with footage of countries arming themselves to the teeth in expectation of battle. Black and white images of soldiers marching off to confrontations yet unplanned, kissing their loved ones goodbye, and smiling innocently. This is nothing like that. This will […]Read More So it begins…
As the holidays approach, the opportunity to create new PR events is slowing down considerably. Consequently, I’m seeking new directions in which to sustain some buzz. If you’ve been following this blog for anytime, you know what I’ve been up to. The most recent is a new campaign to get some exposure for Arn? Narn. […]Read More Slowly, slowly… then BAM! It starts all over again.
A couple of months ago, I sent a guest pitch e-mail for my photo-documentary book Arn? Narn. to Jon Stewart of The Daily Show on Comedy Central. Unlike many others I’ve submitted, someone from his show did respond and for that I give them immense credit. However, they turned me down. OK. I can live […]Read More I’m calling you out, Jon Stewart… you man enough?
Fame has never really been one of those things for which I’ve lusted. I will admit I do like my work being noticed, reviewed positively, and even purchased for inclusion in art collections. But fame of the Lindsay Lohan variety, ehhh, not so much. That said, I do want my book Arn? Narn. to be […]Read More Matt, Jon, George…can you hear me? Are you out there?
