And The Emmy Goes To...









So last night I made my national television debut in the non- "...Arrested and charged with..." category.  The show is called My Ghost Story, and my daughter Leigh and I told our tale in what can only be described as the Beauty and the Beast segment.  Leigh looked lovely, and I filled the role of the puffy, pasty-faced father.  If you missed it, no big deal-- only that your lives will be slightly diminished as a result.  However, the Bio Channel's website will have it available for viewing in the next few days, and there are always repeat episodes, so fear not.  And if you have no idea of what I'm talking about, you can read this.

As always happens in Hollywood, my best scenes were left on the cutting room floor.  I had so many more "walk over here...now stop and turn around... now looked scared!" spots that were truly terrifying, it's a crime they didn't show them all.  I also had some killer dialogue that I was sure they would use.  Deep, meaningful stuff like, "Can you repeat the question?" and "I was so scared I could've crapped my pants!"  But with nearly two hours worth of interviews, and another couple hours of tape filmed at my house, they had to cut something to fit into an eight-minute segment.



Well, it was all fun, but I'm glad it's all in the rear-view mirror.  It's time I got back to un-interrupted painting.  I know how being on TV can become addictive to some, but it was a one-shot deal for me.  But then again, I did hear phantom footsteps in my bedroom closet one time, and I have seen strange shadows moving about the house at night.  Hey... maybe I can get on Ghost Adventures!...

We lit the big 24 wick candle, had a bowl of popcorn and snuggled in to watch your debut. It was pretty cool to see you on the big screen and I have to say about the camera putting on weight, it's not a myth. So glad I didn't have to see myself with added pounds!

Well, I WAS wearing three cameras, but I didn't think Leigh looked heavy at all!

Having missed the genuine broadcast last night, I went to Bio's website. It was crowded with spooks of all kinds, but in order to be able to pick you out of that crowd, I need to know the number of your episode. What number is it?

Sam, if I heard correctly from the show's producer, I'm on episode 50, otherwise known as "The Best Episode Ever" That said, I noticed that on their site that ep 29 was one that was on last Saturday night. So, I'd say wait a week-- it could be 30, or 31, but it should be on. Just keep the lights on...

This gives me a new perspective on life and existence.

Something that might be related is the 'global consciousness project'. These researchers believe consciousness can extend outside of the physical brain.
