|The Eiffel Tower of Austin|
Well you know, give her an inch... I so love being on the radio (and listening to the radio) that I started pestering the folks at KUT to let me do more, more, MORE! This was, I suppose, partly ego driven. But I swear it was also related to my adoration of that station. A brainstorming session was called with Rebecca McInroy and Hawk Mendenhall-- those folks responsible for the Give Us Your Car Or Else spots-- and a plan was made. It took us longer than expected to execute that plan, but at long last, TA-DA!! Welcome to Whim City. The goal is to make this an ongoing series where I get to tell you-- in words, sounds, and pictures both moving and still-- all about why I LOVE AUSTIN, TEXAS. Added bonus: Mike Lee, aka Mr. Sonic ID, has added his super animation powers.
Here's a video of the first episode-- my trip to the top of the old Air Traffic Control Tower. You can read my accompanying mini-essay right here.
