I interview local business owners, artists, professors, and overall interesting people at Shakespeares Downtown. I come prepared with a bunch of questions for them (a mix of my own and Gerry Fialka's), bring some nice recording equipment, and make them the pizza of their dreams. We talk for 60-90 minutes (ideally) about their life and work. Or life-work. Or work-life. Whichever. It's an interview series. Maybe more like a podcast. Or Charlie Rose meets Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee. (Profound and Provocative People eating Pizza???) There's not really a stinkin' point to all of this. It's a passion project for me. I want to tap in to people I find very interesting and let others have a listen if they wish. So that's that.

It's a blog done in the rough format of a changelog.txt. It's experimental. The I-feel-like-everything-I-do-is-worthless-sometimes-but-if-I-write-it-down-it-will-seem-more-important approach. If it works, I won't need to see a psychologist... or a psychiatrist. Application: "Joseph v1.6.78 beta" One day, I'll be ready for full release.

This is an experiment with color schemes.
