If you’re in Western New England, I have some good news and some bad news. It snowed again, but I am on television tonight.  So if you’re snowed in tonight and staying warm, please tune in.  Connecting Point airs at 7:30PM on WGBY.  It’s my second arts segment with the show. Luckily we got to film this week, in spite of all of the snow.  The first segment was about music.  Tonight is all a bout film.  There is so much that can be covered when your canvas is “arts in Western New England.”  Theater, poetry, comedy, painting, and dance are definitely on the radar. If you have show ideas, please comment below.

I am also very excited about PodCamp WesternMass.  It’s an “un-conference” about social media and online networking. It is happening at Westfield State College on Saturday, February 5th all day.  If you don’t know about PodCamp, TweetUps, and the social media networking landscape in Western MA, then come out to learn and play!  If you already tweet and blog your little butt off, then this is the place for you!  It’s only $25, and it’s a smorgasbord of fun and learning.  Their site perfectly states, “Bloggers, business people, artists, and academics, to get together, make connections, and for everyone to learn how social media can enhance their business, cause or organization. This is also a chance to celebrate the cornucopia of Western Mass. culture, a joyous blend of urban and rural; business, artistic and academic; near enough to other large metro areas, but small enough to hear yourself think.”  I am a PodCamp virgin and can’t wait for February 5th!


Blog Squared

As you may know, I am hosting some arts segments for Connecting Point, a brand new program that premieres on WGBY tonight!  In addition to the segments airing about what’s going on in the arts in Western New England, I am blogging too.  I won’t constantly be here blogging within a blog, but I wanted to share my first post with you.  I hope you will subscribe to both blogs and show me some love.

The blog will be so much fun because I can hardly scratch the surface in just two on-air segments per month.  If you have arts & entertainment related topics that you think should be covered, please comment below.  Oh, and here’s a pic taken after my very first Connecting Point interview with Mark Erelli.

The interview was a success, and I hope you will tune in Thursday night at 7:30PM on WGBY.  Yep, I’m coming to PBS.

The Bed is the New Desk

You always hear things like, “gray is the new black” or “50 is the new 40.”  Well, I’m here to tell you that the bed is the new desk.  I’ve been working from bed on and off all day.  Yes, I showered. I’m not in pajamas. I even left the house for a lunch meeting.  But hey, my bed is comfortable. I paid a lot of money for it.  And why not work from bed if you can?

I have been researching topics for my first arts segment with Connecting Point. I will be filming this Friday and the segment will air January 13th at 7:30PM…well, sometime in that half hour time slot.  I can hardly contain my excitement, and I am pumped for Friday!  I landed my first guest, and I have to say I am pretty proud of myself.  I will tell you all about it after we film the segment Friday.  I am planning a little behind the scenes vlogging too.

Well, I have to get back to bed,  Meghan
