I’ve recently become more interested and involved in video shoots for PHOENIX magazine. I’ve blogged about some of the videos I’m in – like the Tent City lunch review with Sheriff Joe Arpaio, a tour of Alice Cooper’s teen center, and the quickie shoot with Rob Halford of Judas Priest, but there are so many more marvelous videos at the PHOENIX magazine YouTube site, including an at-home interview with Vickie Kerr, creator of Miss Vickie’s potato chips; a behind-the-scenes video from our “Best of the Valley” cover photo shoot with Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald; how-to drink recipe videos from Summer Cocktail Camp at The Gladly; a “Top 5 Valley Desserts” video with radio personality Monti Carlo; and many more.

But apparently, my mouth rarely rests, either.
