I'm such a dork

A couple months ago, the press team for the Charm City Devils asked me to talk a little bit about their album for a YouTube video about the band.

This was the first time I'd done anything like this, and I laughed out loud at myself when I saw my quotes. Not only do I look like a dork, but I look like a fat dork with a bad haircut. For the record, I only weigh 162 -- the camera appears to have added 40 pounds!

Watch and learn ...

There, there. You'll grow into the role.

buttoned down shirt for your big moment
public speaking either isn't your strong point or you got ambushed between your cubicule and the men's room
dork is a little strong maybe halfway there

Dude, I feel your pain. How did your publicist let that happen? You forgot to wear your leather rock scribe togs.

I offense but the guys in the band look like bigger dorks than anyone...highlighted 80's hair band haircuts? Really?? Blech!

If by "authentic" you mean "contrived" then I'd say you nailed these guys.

Yawn - Who needs an Aerosmith / ACDC knockoff while the originals/the real thing is still together performing and recording?
