Jesus has given me a sign.

The cast of Jersey Shore is going to Italy for Season 4. Read it here.

Now, this is probably career suicide, but I want to be their cultural guide.

Allow me to offer my credentials:
  1. PhD/MA/BA in Art History, with a specialization in Italian art, Modern and Baroque
  2. I speak Italian.
  3. I have lived in Italy for about three years total.
  4. I was born in New Brunswick, NJ 08901. That's halfway between 8A and 9 for those keeping score, and it means that I speak Jersey Shore.
Now, I understand that TV shows are organized years in advance, but I would like to volunteer my services.

If anyone works at MTV or knows someone who works at MTV. Tell them to holler at me.


  1. If I were affiliated with MTV (and really, I'm glad I'm not), I would hire you. You were more than entertaining in a lecture hall environment; I'm sure you would be extremeley watchable on cable TV.

    On another note, I hope you enjoy my artistic vandalism:

    I had a Sharpie and a camera on me, and there was a sad toilet begging to be elevated to high art right in front of me.

    I hope to have another class with you soon!

  2. Mim, that's great. Sorry it took so long, but I've been all about the Super Bowl this week. That totally made my day.
