But Enough About Me; What Did YOU Think Of My Performance?
So, finally got my hands on a VHS copy of the "Small Spaces, Big Style" ep, and had a chance to watch it last night. Frankly, it's about what I was told to expect, what with nearly four hours of shot footage edited and compressed down into a four and a half-minute segment.
All-in-all, I think it was a pretty accurate depiction of my "retro-futuristic bachelor pad", although they did miss a couple of key elements. For example, I don't in fact, own the space, I just rent. During the section depicting the bathroom, the interior designer mentions that you can also add things like river rocks to floor space where you don't walk to add a "spa feel"; if the shot had panned down to the floor, you would have seen that I've done exactly that, using tropical accoutrements such as coconut & conch shells. Also, on the website, it notes that the spice containers on the stove hood are attached using Velcro; in fact, they have magnetic pads. Finally, I was hoping they'd provide some explanation for my wild use of color in the kitchen area, but it would have been very similar to comments made in the preceding segment, so perhaps they were trying to avoid presenting the audience with what might have been perceived as redundant information. In any event, these are relatively minor quibbles.
I thought it was interesting, almost ironic, that all the other homes in the segment were owned by people in the interior design industry. I would have liked it if they had mentioned my own artistic background, as I think it would have provided a bit more context as to the origins of this crazy-collectibles environment. Still, it's a teensy bit flattering that they felt my space was even worthy of comparison (although perhaps contrast was more the intent) to domiciles created by people who do this for a living.
So, I guess technically, according to "Warhol's Axiom", I still have exactly ten and a-half minutes of fame left "in the bank".
I'll try to utilize that wisely.
