Unreal

Most of you probably know that I blog for The Skateboard Mag. In that position I get a lot of press releases and favors asked for posts about whatever. KW forwarded to me an e-mail requesting that I post the new trailer for Mumble Magazine's first DVD, Little Giants: Volume One which is about artist Don Pendleton. I'm a big Don Pendleton fan, so I asked KW if he could get me a complementary copy of the DVD. Bob K wrote back to KW saying he would send me a copy of the DVD and that until seeing my address he had believed I was not a real person.

"I seriously can't believe he's actually a real dude. I wasn't kidding this whole time when I told you that I thought you made him up. The mailing address would be a little extended of you to try and keep the illusion going; I believe he's real now." Bob K to KW in an e-mail

It's kind of exciting that someone like Bob K has ever thought about me at all. I'm just a lowly skate blogger who lives in Virginia and has little contact with the real skate world outside of the internet. It's also exciting to think that he thought I was fictional. I take it to mean that my blogging was so impressive that he thought no single real person could be responsible for all of it. He probably figured it was a named used at The Mag so everyone could promote themselves without looking like they where on an ego trip.

Whatever the truth is, it's nice to be noticed.
