Looking at The World Ten Years Later
Episode 18 of my public access television show, "FotoTales," detailing the world exactly ten years ago is scheduled for broadcast this evening on Channel 29 at 7:30 PM.
You probably shouldn't make any plans around that announcement, however, because the Bay Area Video Coalition, which is currently in charge of San Francisco's public access station, is stunningly inept. "FotoTales" has 52 weekly episodes mirroring a year, they are each numbered, the station has a schedule, and yet they still can't seem to figure out what goes on when correctly. Episode 16, for instance, just ran two weeks in a row because nobody bothered to change it to Episode 17.
In any case, you can check out Episode 18 online by clicking here. It's a particularly lively installment, with David Byrne at the Warfield Theatre, a dog protest at Civic Center, and plenty of long walks in Marin County and up Polk Street. And maybe the broadcast this evening will even be correct.
Update: They played Episode 16 again for the third straight time. This is starting to get embarrassing.
