The topic of Missed Connections has come up a few times in the last month among my group of friends. The discussion always results in immediately laughter and sometimes surprise. My personal CL MC story – I wrote one for a checker at Costco I thought was really cute and did it to the Budweiser Real Men of Genius song. I quickly got an enthusiastic response back. Not from the subject, but from her best friend who sympathetically informed me that she (the Costco girl) was gay. Oops
Today, thanks to LAist, I learned about a really cool webseries on the LA Times website called ICU. It’s a collection of short video interviews of the people who write MC’s. Katy Newton is the genius behind it and I really enjoyed the three I’ve watched so far. You might go into it thinking you are going to laugh at these people, but instead, you immediately feel sympathetic to them and even can identify.
