When other people talk about me, it’s usually behind my back. Not that I’m paranoid.
I just… know it.
So naturally, our next challenge in the “Performer of the Year” competition at The Public Blogger is to put together a special two-part presentation revealing who we are through the eyes of others. As you might expect, this meant soliciting people to talk about me in front of my back — the objective being to offer a revealing look into whether we are an imitation or representation of our art.
I don’t know what all that means, but I’m repeating it here in hope of sounding highly sophisticated and artistic.
Now before I show you the clips below, I promise you that “revealing” who I am does not involve any undergarments. This time.
Though I’m not allowed to share the final version of the video, which will air this Sunday beginning at 7 p.m., I have put together a few sneak peeks that I’ll be sharing on my Facebook page throught the week heading into Sunday’s round of competition and voting.
Will the video offer insight into “Who Ned Is?” Or perhaps more importantly, will it serve as evidence should any of my friends or family sue me for mental anguish? Only time will tell.
Probably behind my back…
(My Mom even chimed in for this one, aka, “payback time”)
(My co-workers are really… uh, supportive)
(My first editor does his best to forget hiring me)
(I almost appear legit here)
I hope you’ll tune in for the “big reveal” (again, don’t worry!) this Sunday. I’ll post a link here and on my Facebook page when it goes live and voting begins at 7 p.m. (PST). The competition is down to three of us, with one of us going home after voting ends Monday morning at 10 a.m. After last week’s round, I am back to the top ranking again, thanks in large part to your support at the polls. As I mentioned to a friend last night who was asking how I’m handling the pressure now that it’s getting down to the final two rounds, “hand me another beer.”
But I then told him the pressure has been easier to bare (sorry) because of the amazing support I’ve been receiving from all of you.
And then I passed out.
In all seriousness though, my sincere thanks once again for your continued support and encouragement on this journey. It really does mean a lot.
