A Case of Mistaken Identity

"Let me make one thing perfectly clear..."

I promised never to do it again – refer to myself in the third person in this space – but sometimes you just have to break the rules...

While perusing the user statistics for this blog, I noticed a recent series of hits from a site called “, the online community for film making." Following the comment thread back to a question about building a pipe grid for lighting on stage led me to the source of those hits, a link from a DVX member named “Slondon” embellished with the following comment:

“This blog is a wonderful read and she has links to a bazillion photos she's taken, many inside studios and sound stages.”

Although I appreciate such kind words, particularly when coupled with a link to BS&T, it’s abundantly clear that they were not aimed at me. Yes, the URL is mine, but although I’ve been accused of many things over the long roller coaster ride of my Hollywooden career, being a “she” is not among them. I'm not particularly proud of being a guy -- having been born that way, I had no say in the matter -- but it is what it is and I am what I am.

And that, my fellow Americans, is a he.

Slondon seems to have confused my blog with that of the wonderful Peggy Archer over at “Totally Unauthorized” – a terrific writer/juicer who is most definitely a she, and does indeed “link to a bazillion photos she’s taken, many inside studios and sound stages.”

Alas, I do not. Any DVXUser readers who followed Slondon's link here and remain puzzled by what they found should click on over to Peggy's blog, where the writing and stories are indeed as good as the photos.

Now, back to our regularly scheduled programming...

Haha, maybe if you change your header picture to pink gloves you'll get more hits.
