NPR

Click below to hear a neat interview with journalist Lori Rotenberk on New Hampshire public radio.  She discusses the history of the scarecrow and mentions a weird scarecrow builder from Pennsylvania.

The scarecrow portion starts at the 31 minute mark.

So do you get giddy when things like this happen or do you just kinda punch yourself? Must be semi-surreal! Too cool.

Sara,
nah...I'm uneasy when it comes to these things. That's why i don't do the interview thing all that often.
I'm happy people find my stuff worthy enough to feature, but i prefer my work to be featured without any words from me.

And a few of these interviews have proven to be odd since there are misspellings or misquotes. Still can't figure out how that happens in a world of print. Like those photos in that NHPR story. I sent specific quotes for each photo..as requested by the guy from the station. He posted text that I did not send, stating that those Halloween scarecrows from last year were from the MR JONES movie. Minor point, but it still ends up being incorrect. Like that Rue Morgue interview screwing up where I live and how I got the MR JONES gig. It's just easier to pass over interviews rather than cringe when I read the finished product.

Rambling here.
