I hate pictures of myself, and I’ve never done the headshot thing. I guess I probably should have at some point; there are rare occasions when I’m asked for my picture and I don’t have much to offer.

But I love what Kim Whitman says in her blog about this. And one line was especially good:

We want to hire you, not be seduced by you. Yes, your headshot can be too sexy.

I’ve seen some headshots that look like that. I find them annoying.

Me? I think I should have one that makes me look thinner, younger, and beautiful. Now is that asking too much?

Um. Yeah. It is.

Never mind. I actually want one that really looks like me. Maybe someday …?

If I am understanding what I’m reading, this is a high school student who put this together for a talent show. Lots of fun! 🙂

… and so unusual!

Or not.

But I read the paragraph below here.

Most of the numbers in his show deal with magic, however obliquely. Parodying the role of Harry Houdini, which he originated in the West Coast production of “Ragtime,” he arrived onstage in handcuffs, which he tried futilely to shake off in the Houdini manner. There was a “Bewitched Medley,” in which he played the oboe deliberately off-key. Later in the show he twirled the instrument like a baton.

I would have loved to have found a YouTube video of Jason Graae playing oboe. And twirling it, of course. Alas, it is not to be. (The link takes you to his site where you can hear him singing in tune … probably deliberately)

Yes, I’m sad that I can’t find a video. I know you are too. 🙁
