Yeah, ok, so I’ve written two news articles within the past week that, shall we say, didn’t quite make the cut. Something about content and hurting feelings and making people cry… whatever. For a short while I wondered if anything would come up that could be considered newsworthy. And when I mean a short while, I’m talking like 20 minutes, because, well you see, TV’s Kirk Cameron came into the room! Once again, there is news that is fit to print!
Ahhhh yes. TV’s Kirk Cameron. It seems that just when things begin to look a little bleak as far as our adventures are concerned, TV’s Kirk Cameron arrives with a positive message, a quick flash of a smile (still disarming after all these years…), a twinkle of the eye, and an ever sense of wonder (how is it that he has yet to age?).
I find that he is hard to pin down, TV’s Kirk Cameron. I think to myself “how nice would it be to sit down, eat some pot stickers, and have some lovely quiet conversation with TV’s Kirk Cameron? I would ask him the tough questions. The ones that have plagued me for so long, such as what was it like to take on the hard hitting plot lines involving teenage homelessness and living in the Seaver’s attic starring a young, promising Leonardo DiCaprio? (Could you see his greatness at such as early age?) What about that episode where, seemingly out of nowhere, Mike Seaver has procured a wet/dry shop vac? Where did your character get such a contraption, TV’s Kirk Cameron? Was Ben really such a handful? Was Alan Thicke really that charming of a dad? And the most burning of questions, the one that haunts me during the dark hours of the night, whatever happened to Boner? These are the questions I would ask him over a meal of pot stickers, if I could only find him. By the time my day dreams are done, he is gone. He is already off charming another part of the room, leaving me alone with my fantasies of conversation and friendship.
For he is a quick one, TV’s Kirk Cameron. He is slight of frame, and moves with cat-like quickness, pearly whites gleaming the entire time. He is on the go. People want a piece of him, for not only is he once famous in the eyes of the world, he is here now. He speaks truth. He speaks vision. Truth, vision, vision, truth… show us a video to illustrate a sermon point and I will join the crowd in the green room.
But that is not all! No!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Have I not mentioned TVs Victoria Jackson? We saw her, and she is nothing if not pleasant and fabulous. It was only during what is arguably the second golden age of Saturday Night Live that Mrs. Jackson made her name known to the world. The amazing skits, the amazing cast members she worked with… And what, she likes the DCB? Talk about news that is print worthy!
Anyhow, here is some more print worthy news: The Spring tour is fast approaching. Three words. Check the schedule. The odds are good that we will be somewhere near you. Also, for the lovebirds out there, try honeymooning on the island of St. Kitts (http://www.stkitts-tourism.com). As David said to me, “maybe people just want to hear about your honeymoon.” It was delightful.
Just like TV’s Kirk Cameron and Victoria Jackson.
