My brush with greatness

Twenty years ago, give or take, I went with my buddy Dave Eggers, who was publishing a local magazine called Might, to meet with Judd Winick, the young aspiring cartoonist in MTV’s Real World San Francisco. Eggers and I had a plan to stage a fake fight in front of the MTV cameras which we were both actually much too polite to follow through on, though we probably should have. At any rate, Judd tells me via Twitter (where you can follow him: @JuddWinick) that there’s going to be a Real World SF marathon on this weekend, and my three second cameo is in episode five. I probably look a bit younger.
