Terra Cotta PR Warriors

I’m a little amazed at the saturation of promotion for this event that’s half a year away. We’ve gotten press releases here, there’s signage in the metro, the living statues in Union Station and Gallery Place, and sponsorship blurbs on NPR.

It sounds neat but who plans their museum visits six months out? Is there some other factor we’re missing here?

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.

  1. I love Tyranids Warriors and Genestealers, but I’m not sure I see the connection to the terra cotta warriors. Wouldn’t something a little less sci-fi have made more sense…?

  2. I wanted a picture that had both a warriors theme and a nowhere-near-ready feel to it and this came up early in my creative commons search.

    I was going to use an actual TCW shot but thought it would be a little too odd to question the over-exposure and then contribute to it.
