Post Award Goes Out To....
Our next Public Speaking assignment is to issue a fake award and do a speech discussing why we think this person deserves an award. Our professor says it cannot be someone overly famous or too well known currently, but someone who has done things (music, films, sports, government, etc.) that are noteworthy and we feel deserves / deserved more credit.

I have an idea in mind.... but before I give it away, I need to ask my professor (today) if I'm allowed to play music samples and have instrumentals run in the background during my awards speech. While many of my classmates are young, there are some who are old enough to know (or remember upon hearing) what the mid to late 90's music sounded like. I was thinking of doing an artist, but figured that if I can play music samples, I might as well do my speech on a producer - this way it would give me an excuse to play a variety of songs by the same producer rather than just a few songs from one artist! We are required to at least have 3 cited sources of info within our paper and speech....

More details later.

If you are in need of sources, two easy ones come to mind: You can look up charts on Billboard.com, and you can look up gold/platinum record awards on RIAA.com.

He accepted my idea, so I have two choices:

1. Glenn Gutierrez
2. Dj Juanito

He said I must pick ONE.

The name I gave him was Glenn Gutierrez, though.

I must use three cited sources, discuss a brief history and follow an outline format.

Well, alright. :)

You could pull info from the interview I did with Daniel for LAUnion. Unfortunately that website is offline, but he reposted it here on the forum in 2007. viewtopic.php?f=3&t=11383

I decided to do my introductory speech on George Noory (of Coast to Coast AM) instead, BUT I will still play some instrumentals in the background since I was already granted permission to do that. www.coasttocoastam.com

This was much easier for me than what I was originally planning to do with trying to line up the music cuts timing with the speech, etc. I may have another chance to do my other plan next time. There's no turning back now since the preliminary outline is due today.

Hey, what happened to Art Bell, anyway? Did he pass away?

No he just retired. He occasionally fills in from time to time or does special appearances.

And by occasionally, it's because it takes time to fly back to Earth from Sagittarius A*. :hehe:
