Here are things with which I can relate:
I "find no greater joy than cackling over a beautiful little orphaned theater piece at a tiny off-Broadway house that no one can find, despite the best efforts of the show's beleaguered, underpaid publicist. And, as soon as the performance is over, you shamble off to your cave to hunch over your computer for hours in an effort to tell someone about it."
I am the underpaid publicist, but I have the same hopes and intentions as you the finder of the lost arc. And my battle is to help you press "send our best writers to hunt talent in places where tourists are scared to go."
Read Mark Blankenships "Critical Condition" blog...he has a lot of interesting things to say.
