They put my face on the front of Robotech.com. I have hit the big time. Now if only I didn't look quite so dorky...

Thursday, December 7th, 9 p.m. Eastern will mark my second interview with Harmony Gold staffer, Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles co-writer/co-director Tommy Yune. (My first was when I want up to St. Louis for the film festival. At least this time I should have slightly better audio quality than a microcassette recorder.) It's an exciting opportunity to rub shoulders with some of the big names of Robotech (and to mix other metaphors like that).

f anyone has any specific questions they'd like to make sure I ask, post 'em in the comments and I'll collect 'em up and ask the good ones. If you want to make sure your question gets asked, make sure you phone in because I'll take questions round-robin style after I've run through all my own questions.

Wow. I'm on the front page of robotech.com. That's awesome.

This is me at a Panera in St. Louis, getting ready to conduct an interview with Harmony Gold representative Tommy Yune. (Click pic for larger version.) The interview took half an hour, and was pretty cool; I tried not to ask some of the same things I knew he'd been asked before in other interviews.

The interview can be heard in episode #58 of the RDF Underground podcast; or downloaded and played separately. Some interesting stuff came out about the future of the Robotech franchise, although of course there was a lot Tommy couldn't say. He shot the photo at right with his digital camera; there are some other photos, some also of me, at his photo gallery of the film festival event.

How was Shadow Chronicles? Pretty good. It wasn't perfect; it had just a few flaws, the largest of which was that there wasn't enough time in a 90-minute movie to focus adequately on all the new characters. I would like to have seen the same events covered by about eight 22-minute TV episodes, to provide more time for characterization. I'll post a more detailed review on my essay journal or as part of RDF Underground soon enough. But by and large, it was a great experience and a worthy successor to Robotech. If I had the opportunity to see it again I would do so immediately. February 6th cannot come soon enough.
