KY3 Story – Urban Spiritual Seekers and Anatomically Incorrect Chickens

Last night, The Core, and the Front Porch, were featured on KY3 News at Ten.

Overall, pretty good story. Fair, but friendly, too.

The only thing… and I can imagine the reporter snickering with the video editors about this… is how they caught me talking about “oversized breasts”. Not only that, so oversized that they make it difficult to stand upright.

The breasts in question were, in fact, chicken breasts, and I mentioned them in my 10-minute talk about the Organic Movement during April’s Open Mic Night. 10 minutes of words, and that’s what they picked?!? Oh well.

In case you’re interested, I was trying to point out the danger of taking what’s natural, and engineering it into a farce. I started out on the topic of organic food vs. frankenfood, and moved on to the conviction that we were designed to live in community… relating to one another face-to-face, and not face-to-interface. At least not so often.

Also, the final comment on the story, “the Front Porch building is owned by a nightclub” needs a bit of clarification. The fact is that our landlord, who is leasing the building to us, owns several businesses, one of which is a downtown nightclub. Although we get along great with him, and he is positive about what we’re doing, it is strictly a business relationship. And it seems to me that nightclubs don’t own buildings, people do.

So if you’ve started typing out an angry e-mail, send it to your congressperson instead. And title it, “Won’t someone pleeeease think of the chickens???”

    Huh-LAA-rious! That struck me as a bit odd as well. But I thought it went over well overall. And it did just barely catch the mention of chickens in the clip, if you didn’t notice. That’s just so funny, though. You know that had to be intentional. There’s no other explanation! LOL!
