CPAC Credentials; Radio Appearance Tonight

Okay, first up: I apologize that the site went down today. It just keeps happening. It's possible we were under spam-attack again.

Next: I'm so grateful to Mike from Red State for selecting me to be a fully-credentialed media-guy at the CPAC conference in mid-February. Whoo-hoo!

It may be difficult to work around my judge-imposed order to remain at least 500 feet away from Ann Coulter, but hopefully they relax so-called "temporary restraining orders" at these things. Otherwise, it's going to be pretty difficult to move around the joint.

Finally, I've agreed to appear on a Standford University radio show called "Shark Tank" tonight at eight EST (five on the Pacific coast, which is, frankly, the only place you can hear it... in fact, you can only probably hear it within an eight block radius of the radio mast).

The host is trying to fill up empty air, quite frankly, and he'd like you to send along any questions you might have to, because God knows he and I won't have anything to talk about otherwise. If you're somewhere in SoCal, you can listen in to KZSU (I'm still waiting to hear where it is on the dial).

It's going to be fun but nerve-wracking. I have no book to promote, nothing of particular interest to say (as long-time readers can attest), nothing especially I need to get off my chest. I'm tapped, dried up, empty, spent. I figure we'll talk about the Patriots game for five or six minutes and then maybe my extensive collection of pre-Powers of the Force Star Wars action figures.

But I'm told I should be "political" and "funny." Well, I guess we'll have to see.

Personally, I expect disaster, as I usually do (and, alas, I'm usually right about it). So, for those of you who enjoy slowing down at bus-collisions, it might be worth your time.

Update: It's on 90.1 FM in the Palo Alto area.

But it's also... oh, God... available as an RM stream everywhere, at the Stanford station homepage, which means that it's possible that more than eight people will be listening.

Not good. Not good at all.

Remember: Always judge on a curve. This is my first time doing this, and, let's be honest, I'm a retard anyway.

Also bear in mind that so-called "dead air" is not necessarily a bad thing. Sometimes it's used deliberately to achieve an effect, like a dramatic pause. Or something.

Update II: Jeff Goldstein bets $20 that I sound like Wally Cox. I take that as an insult, although I don't think I've ever actually heard him. Read a kick-ass kid's book co-written by him, though, about a cat who could read minds.

I hope to hell I don't sound like Wally Cox. I've always fancied myself as having a more Hasselhovian timbre to my voice.

But you'll have to be the judge, I guess.
