Grade school in a little Kansas town. I had a tape recorder, the kind from Home Alone. Roaming the schoolyard during recess, I would interview teachers and kids. Was I a dork? Sure, but most humans have a dorky side. Even the *popular* kids had their goofy voices and impressions.
Below is a showcase dorky of entertainment that I enjoy, so if you’re feeling a little too stoic, try them out. And don’t forget to check out the links beneath each video for a little more “behind the scenes”.
