See Grandma On G4's Attack Of The Show! ...Someday In The Future, Perhaps
Oh, she noticed!
Unfortunately, Grandma gets really nervous about traveling by herself, let alone doing the show without me there- not to mention she just had a mini-stroke-heart-blockage ...thing, and transcontinental travel can be lonely enough without having to worry about medication. So, she had me write back to the coordinator of the show to say she just couldn't make the trip alone.
Me- "You sure?"
Grandma- "There's no fucking way I could do something like that by myself, not like this! You've GOT to be there."
He understood the situation and was very sympathetic. They have a travel budget like everyone else, and two people for a small feature just doesn't jive this quarter, if you know what I mean. It's not G4's fault, they didn't know. He said he'd keep our information and call us back at the beginning of next year, when they have a new travel budget. For what's it worth, I believe him.
We'll just have to wait a while to see Grandma on G4, yet how appropriate would it be for my brother Kenny to see his Grandma on a recorded episode of AOTS right before watching his 40+ recordings of Anime Unleashed? Tivo is a great thing when used for the powers of good. (The kid has an addiction. We live in an Anime friendly house. We are all enablers.)
Someday soon! One day our hero Grandmother, to whom we are all Hardcore Grandchildren, will freak the shit out of you by being on TV again. At that moment, you will look at the screen and spit whatever cereal you happen to be eating out through your noise and proclaim to your spouse, coworkers, family, friends and pets: "THAT'S HER! It's OGHC! Game on!"
Just not yet :)
