I’m having so much fun searching for new subjects for le’ bostonians all around Boston, there are so many options, and so many stories to dive into that I really hope I can carry on this project for a long time. Most recently I got to meet Kevin Driscoll, he’s a Berkeley-formed musician, he moved here from a small town in Nebraska back in 1967! He’s a former 80’s tech guy. Oh, and he’s also a ventriloquist. When I find stories like this one I feel this weird rush, I feel all happy inside and I want and need to know more.
I mean come one, Kevin came from a town where the population was 235 people! Aaaaand he moved to Boston in the summer of love! There’s some good stuff there, plus the story of how he became a ventriloquist, the love for his family and how he thrives to be better at all things every single day is quite inspiring. I got the chance to sit down with this big hearted, long-bearded man in his sixties, an open book that has one goal in mind, to make us laugh and keep us entertained.
I’ll be really honest, I love a ventriloquist but the little dolls freak me the f*ck out, I got to meet his co-star Jerry and at first I kept my distance from him, I know, I know it’s stupid but for some reason something inside me tells me that there is a chance that the dummy is gonna become alive and start kicking ass, my ass. I know, I know! it’s ridiculous but it’s on my mind. I do have to say that I felt at ease while the shoot progressed and that negative thought went away, I guess Kevin really helped me out without knowing, he’s presence is soothing and warm, such a nice man.
I’m really happy with what we got in the can, we’ll have this episode ready for all to watch in a couple of weeks, I don’t want to rush things with this series, meaning that I’m not going to have a bunch of episodes edited and ready, I’m going to take my time finding the right stories, the right people.
It’s all about them stories. I can’t get enough of them.
