Hackie [SIV2] 

Finally, another installment of my new vlog, Stuck in Vermont.  Two weekends ago I spent a morning chatting with local author, cab driver, comedian and philosopher Jernigan Pontiac.In addition to being highly entertained by his droll humor and getting a great tour of the area from a cab's-eye-view, I had an excellent time talking to Jernigan about life, art and people. 

It is not often that you find such a genuine, interesting, thoughtful soul and even rarer still when you get to have an on-camera chat with them.It killed me to whittle my hour of footage down to 4 minutes (literally, it killed me, I am still in mourning) but at long last, here is the final bite-sized product, Stuck in Vermont, Episode 2, The Hackie

I may have to follow this vlog up with Jernigan's tour of the area not to mention more Jernigan gems about writing and life and massive amounts of silliness.  Seriously, this guy needs his own TV show.  So beware another Hackie Episode 2.1 or some such thing.The most awesome music is by C-Funk also known as Adam Cooper Wood and Chris Cheney

Remember to read the bi-weekly Hackie column in Seven Days and to buy the Hackie books here!  Spread the word folks, a little dose of Hackie each day keeps the winter doldrums at bay!
