Play My Shit

Set the DVR! Monumental Mysteries Season 2 Episode 6

Last November, I filmed an episode of the Travel Channel's Monumental Mysteries.
The episode airs this Friday July 18th, at 9pm on the Travel Channel.  

Here's a brief description of the episode: 

Kecksburg Acorn, Skyscraper Swindle, US Emperor

Don Wildman inspects a bizarre acorn-shaped sculpture that commemorates an otherworldly event; explores the world's smallest skyscraper that was once at the center of an outrageous scam; and investigates an engineering wonder inspired by an eccentric figure.

My segment is about a couple that runs an inn in Northern California during the Gold Rush.  The title of my piece is "Murder at the mission."  If you have ever wondered what I'd look like as a mass murdering cowboy, here's your chance.   But keep your eyes open during the segment, blink and you might miss me!  

Here's a link to my experiences on set:

Here's a description of the show:

Monumental Mysteries scours the country for America’s most extraordinary monuments and reveals the amazing mysteries hidden within. Just some of the tales include New York’s Ellis Island, which served as a beacon of hope for the world-famous Von Trapp family of singers; a huge clock on the island of Hawaii where the hands are forever frozen in time due to the Hilo Tsunami; the Falling Star Sculpture in Alabama that commemorates the only known American to be hit by a meteorite; and Arizona’s breathtaking Grand Canyon, where a newlywed couple inexplicably vanished. Hosted by Don Wildman, this series visits the statues, memorials, national parks, sculptures and gravestones that commemorate our nation’s most intriguing events, notorious crimes, scandals, disasters and triumphs.

And, if you don't feel like sitting through an hour of basic cable reenactments here's a link to the clip I'm in:
