wanna be famous?

please forgive me for the copying and pasting but this was too good to not keep sharing. from urban velo...

We received the following request via email. They’re casting a TV series about bicycle messengers for a popular youth oriented cable network. They apparently can’t disclose who at this time, but they promise you’ll know the network.

We are searching for the fastest, smartest, coolest, and funniest bicycle messengers in NYC (but other cities are welcome as well) who are 25 years old or younger. We’re looking for ALL types of messengers, but especially those who are deep into messenger culture. This is a paid gig if you’re chosen. Hell, it’s paid even if you’re not chosen — we’re giving $25 in cash if you come down and do a 15 minute interview on either Friday, March 13th or Saturday, March 14th in Tompkins Sq. Park.

If you are from outside NYC we will arrange transportation for you.

So, if you are a bike messenger (who is 25 years old or younger and can prove it) and are interested in being involved in this project please send us a picture of yourself and a phone number and we’ll schedule a time for you to do a quick and fun interview. Compensation: $25 for a 15 minute interview. More to come if you are selected for the project.

Email for more info.

i wonder what network and what exactly is going on. notice that they will pay for transportation if you're from out of! does that mean if i e-mail them they'll send me roundtrip tickets? i might be down for that...ha! it's been a while since i've been in new york and wouldn't mind visiting some old friends. btw, as some of you know or may not know...there already was an attempt at something...

check out part 2 of 3 and 3 of 3 if you could get passed the first minute...peace.
