We Are Famous

At last, the moment we all have been waiting for. The Burning Hearts Revolution has been featured in a newspaper article. All this thanks to the PR-savvy poet laureate of Arizona, Michelle Lawrence.

What's next?

I was thinking we'd start out small with a television show, probably a half hour sitcom. After that we'll work up to a dramatic hour-long show, and then, of course, a movie. Maybe a series of movies. You guys can all be in it, since you have been such devoted friends when I was a nobody.

    That guy sounds bitter. Maybe you should give ole Slim an honorable mention award or something.

  2. I think he's just jealous of Michelle. I sent him an e-mail and told him that he was the Clark Kent of the Burning Hearts Revolution, since he was the first reporter to write an article about us.

  4. Yup, I just switched over to beta blogger and haven't had time to repair all the damage yet.

    Of course you will be in the BHR movie.

  6. I love musicals!

    And there's so much talent represented by the BHR community. I think we could really pull it off. It could be wonderful.

    Now we just need a plot, an orchestra and someone to fall in love with someone else.

    Slim Smith is just lonely and looking for attention! I e-mailed him as well and asked him where the cold case of Corona was, that if he was the one dolling out beer, I'd stop down at the paper and pick up my prize.
    I felt the need to somehow defend myself after reading the column, but I know he is just doing what he considers to be his job.
    The Clark Kent reference is brilliant, he could never seem to get a date either!

  8. I do seem to recall saying something about jealousy and envy being some of the rewards of becoming poet laureate. I am so glad that it's being delivered, Michelle! :)

  9. I am really liking the "BHR: The Musical idea. You've got all these poet laureates who could write lyrics. Andy Gott could let us use his famous song "Izvolete" John and Andy could wear the banana suit. All the makings of a big hit.

  10. Shasta just informed me this weekend that I shouldn't say "banana suit." Apparently it has some other, slang meaning.

  11. I'd really like to help support the whole BHR musical thing, so I'll volunteer to be the one to fall in love with someone else.

  12. That's very helpful, Alexis, thank you.

    Okay, now we need another romantic lead. Gentlemen?

  13. Could we have something like the Swedish chef from the muppets in this musical, or like the one from the little mermaid? I'd be glad to volunteer.

  14. Hmmm. I will point out that both the chefs you mention are extremely careless with knives. I have seen your methodically cautious cutting. When you get up here for Christmas I will give you a try out. If you can throw knives around the kitchen without any regard to safety, you get the job.
