I’ve received word that I’m scheduled to appear tonight on the Sundance Channel show LOVE/LUST, during an episode about secret societies. It’s schedule to run at 10 PM, and, well, if you look at the schedule, a LOT after that. This seems to be the type of show they like to rerun for the insomniacs in the middle of the night.
Because apparently, listening to me wax on about what a bunch of Ivy League prepsters did in the 1800s is a sure-fire sleep aid. 😉
I am curious to see how they choose to edit it. It’s one of those late night faux reality “clip shows” where they bring in experts to discuss whatever the topic at hand is. I talked a lot about frat initiations.
Which is weird because I was never in a frat, but they’re very similar to secret societies, as you’ll learn if you watch the show.
See? TOTES an expert!
In related news, I was reading an article about baby names yesterday and they were talking about the way male names “go girl” (like Evelyn, Ashley, Tracy) and rarely go back, and they were discussing Jamie. Which of course, I love for a boy. Though I tend to think of it as a common enough girls’ name, I have actually only known one girl Jamie,a and she spelled it “Jaime”. However, I did know a Jamie-short-for-James guy in college.
No, he was not the basis of Poe. He is, however, a screenwriter and producer, last I heard, who launched his career in the industry by making up a fake secret society at Yale, the rights to which story were eventually made into a made-for-TV-film.
It all comes back around.
