Over at the Indy, I talk to the falling lady above.
UPDATE: Well, I was just notified that Miss Kirkman left a lengthy post in the comments section saying she never said that she “prefers” music venues over comedy clubs. I have to unfortunately say this is my fault. She did not say she prefers music venues. To be honest, I wasn’t thinking. I was just trying to find the right words that would jibe together when I wrote it. I should’ve said she “sometimes does” or “occasionally does” music venues. It was a numbskulled move on my part because I’m notorious for making sure I get facts straight in stories. (BTW, everything else in the article is correct.)
Now, I’m probably gonna get put on probation or suspension or whatever, because nothing scares an alt-weekly more than when someone get misquoted in a story and that someone immediately responds. Plus, I’m working with a new editor, and he’s probably gonna have this in the back of his head whenever we work together — that is, if we continue to work together.
Well, this put a monkey wrench in my day. Let this serve as a reminder to all journalists as well as people who wonder why I never have a positive outlook. Because the minute when I do feel good about myself, shit like this happens.
Anyway, sorry, Miss Kirkman.
