Making Another Documentary (Or So It Can Be Hoped)!
National Tartan Day, held every April 6th, commemorates the anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Arbroath, Scotland's version of our own Declaration of Independence. The climax of New York's Tartan Day celebrations is our Tartan Saturday Afternoon Parade, which takes place on April 10th this year. Our Grand Marshal is Alex Fergusson, Presiding Officer of the Scottish Parliament, and he'll be leading some 2000 Pipers and Drummers up Avenue of the Americas, from West 44th to West 58th Streets, along with a few Scottish terriers, the famous New York Tartan Army, and the world's largest Caber in a Parade that happens so quickly that by the time you've recovered from all the noise, everyone will either have gone home or gone off to attend the Post-Parade Party. (In other words, my dears, we're talkin' 'blink and you'll miss it!')
So what does all this have to do with people filming a documentary about me? I hear ye asking. Because, frankly, I'm a tad greedy to have what happened to Master Thoth happen to me: namely, to have a movie about me win the Best Documentary Short Academy Award. And, as I've previously stated, I believe you deserve to have 90 minutes worth of me, me, me, me, me. (Yes, even with a blog, I can be vain sometimes.)
