I'll have my people call your people

Or maybe not.

I thought I was about to have a very small taste of that 15-minutes-of-fame-thing, but was not meant to be. Read on:

Some of y'all might remember back in April '08 when I blogged about a sweet gal, by the name of Mitch McCabe, who contacted me through MySpace, and subsequently interviewed me for a documentary that she was doing about anti-aging and what people will do/are doing to combat the aging process.

You can read my blog about it here (entitled "Everyone Has Their 15 Minutes") for the full story. I spent a few hours in front of the camera being interviewed, then we went to lunch and talked futher. She was a sweet gal, really laid back. She asked some great questions and was really knowledgeable about the story she wanted to tell.

Well, it looks like the time has come. The film/documentary is complete and it looks to be very good. Yay! She titled it "Youth Knows no Pain" (Better Living Through Plastic Surgery).

(That's Mitch on the poster!)

I asked her to let me know when she completed it and she kept in touch periodically on her progress with the film. One of her most recent emails, unfortunately, said that I had ended up on the cutting room floor. (*GASP* What??? Oh, the horror!!!) But, I had also asked her to let me know if I made it in, or was cut. Oh well... such is the business (yeah, because I just know so much about "the business"!) But I did appreciate her letting me know.

I think I will email her and see if I can get my hands on the footage of me...just to see how it turned out. Although she did mention in her email that the dvd (which I will be purchasing when it's available) may carry some extra footage and I may be in that.

Anyway, I received an email tonight that Mitch's documentary is complete, so I went to check it out. And I'm very proud of the end result.

Check out the trailer here as it premiered on HBO back on August 31st, which I somehow missed, and will be playing at the Sacramento Documentary Film Festival next weekend (Oct 24th) Once you're at the site, click on "Trailer" at the bottom of the screen. You can also read about her by clicking on "About" (like y'all didn't already know that.)

Even though I didn't make it in to the film, I'm very excited about it and just knowing that I was part of the process is still pretty neat. And I'm proud of the job she did.

Awesome job, Mitch!

You go girl!



  1. Hey Tammy it's David. I am sorry your 15 minutes turned into cutting room seconds, but maybe there will be another time!!

  2. Hi David! Thanks for stopping by! Even though I didn't make it in to the film, it was fun being a part of it and hey - it makes for a good story! :-)

  3. COOL! I'd love to see the film. I'm sorry you didn't end up in it.

  4. Me too, but it was fun anyway. And I got to see how they make documentaries.
