Fast Forward TV interview

Back in May I was privileged to be interviewed by Mike Zipser of Fast Forward TV, a monthly half-hour TV series on science fiction and fantasy. It was on the air the in DC area during July, but thanks to the internet, you can view it at your leisure (like, now, for instance!).

It was a huge pleasure to do the interview. Mike was a fantastic host who asked fun questions (which I didn't have access to ahead of time), and it was over before I knew it.

Like that podcast with Jon Armstrong, I haven't watched this yet. I find it too nerve-wracking. So let me know how it is, and whether I should wear my hair back next time.

I loved your hair down. You were so cute. LOL!

The interview was awesome, but we are always our hardest critics. I hope you have a chance to watch it. You were wonderful. :) Makes me wish I got to meet you in Tulsa even more. LOL

Loved the interview! My God, it was like an epiphany when you talked about The Count from Sesame Street! ;)
Also, my vote is hair down. It's beeyootiful hair! Show it off! Unless, of course, you're going for the librarian look. Then it's glasses and a bun all the way.

Ruby, I wish you'd come, too! I'll most likely be back to Conestoga in 2010 for the next FFF mini-con. Next year's Conestoga conflicts with another con that everyone's going to in Orlando (Romantic Times).

Ailishsmom: The Count, yes! That was the first thing I thought of when I read that old legend.

Thanks for the compliments on the hair. The thing is, my face is small and my hair is huge, and one tends to overwhelm the other. In still photos, I definitely look better with the front part loosely pinned back at my nape and the rest free.

I guess I'll have to go watch it. Not today, though. :-)

You sound knowledgeable, enthusiastic and funny; it's a good interview that you should be proud of. And according to my wife, I'm not allowed to have an opinion on anyone's hair, including my own. Considering that I still admire Patrick Swayze's Road House mullet, that's probably best for everyone.
