Got a lot of blackberries? Then check out this recipe for Blackberry Mojito Fruit Leather.

I'm not a huge fan of fruit leathers, but this turned out super good! And, really, you can't go wrong with blackberries, mint and rum.

Mission: Sustainable cast announced

Well, it's officially official. ReGeneration Productions, the production company for the green makeover reality show, Mission: Sustainable, has announced its list of cast members: eleven strikingly charming and well-informed individuals.

In today's press release, they list all the participating cast members, including yours truly, who has been cast as a Green Personal Care Consultant. To see all the bios and watch a short personal video of each consultant, check out the bio page. One weird thing I noticed is that my videotaped voice sounds a lot deeper than in my own head. Well, that and I need to work on my on-camera coherencivity and such like.

Anyway, the biggest thing that's next up for production is to select someone for the makeover for the pilot. If you live in the Seattle area and you know someone who needs a green ass-whooping, I mean, makeover, you can visit the nomination instruction page to nominate them. Seriously, people, go nominate them. Now. Because it will be a total hoot.

According to the press release, "Those chosen to receive a makeover will receive personalized advice and products from our experts to dramatically reduce their carbon footprints. Our experts will make over the candidate's lifestyle in a way that saves money, improves health and contributes to overall happiness."

I'm really looking forward to working with the other cast members. I can really see a great camaraderie coming out of this, along the kind that made Queer Eye such an amazingly fun show to watch. I guarantee that this group of funny (and smart) personalities will make for very entertaining television. And, hopefully, inform and educate a few people along the way.

I'll be blogging about the show's progress both on the production's website as well as here, so stay tuned for more details!

Whoo! I will be very interested in seeing how this plays out :-)

Will the episodes be available online anywhere? Our TV is a movie-watching and video-game box.

Sarah - I think it will depend on a number of things. Primarily which network picks up the show!

April said...

It's about time we saw you in a video. Very cool, like a cucumber.

Crunchy Chicken said...

Well, it's good thing we don't own a videocamera or you'd be subjected to all sorts of stupid clips of me doing various weird green things. Although, on second thought, that's not a bad idea!

Wish you guys were in Mississippi!

I'd nominate myself for an eco-makeover. I've got a long way to go eco-wise, and it wouldn't hurt to have experts guiding me along.

Looks fun! Good luck with it!

dixiebelle said...

No, your voice was sexy, and confident sounding... good luck with it all!

Anna said...

Ha ha, I think I need some more coffee. I thought you were talking about a cast for a broken bone and I was thinking, 'Holy cow, what a great idea!'

Farmer's Daughter said...

So cool! I can't wait to see this on TV!!!

Greenpa said...

I like your photo on the bio page better than the one you're using here now. :-)

This one is just kinda stark, kiddo. Not exactly the photo I would be expecting for a "personal care" consultant.

I like hair! gimme hair! :-)

(oh, yeah, and your fellow cast folk look pretty cool.)

Crunchy Chicken said...

Greenpa - You really have it in for my current photo, don't you? Do you think I'm staring into your soul, or something?

And, I know you like hair. I've seen your picture.

O...M...G... Eric Kocaja can make over my transportation any time!

and the word verification: shing. I'd like to add the appropriate W here, please!

Crunchy Chicken said...

Novemberjuliet - LOL! Well, at least you didn't suggest he could ride your bike anytime :)

Maybe you should nominate yourself. Although I don't think there's much work to be done with you.

Jan said...

Actually I hope you don't change your on-air style at all. It was like a friend sitting across the table carrying on a conversation. Much better than feeling like you're being lectured.

jill said...

Sounds so cool! Congratulations - it is very exciting to see you on video!

Congrats on the new show. Your bio was great, as was your voice. I'm hoping this won't be a "local" Seattle show as I live in Western Massachusetts! Keep us posted! Deb in MA

Leigh said...

What a cool idea for a show! I'm not a big tv watcher, but I will be booting my roomies off the tv to watch it! I so want to nominate my roommates, but I think they'd kill me in my sleep, jk. I will ponder on it. ;)

Kristin said...

This is so exciting ~ congrats! Do you have any idea of when it will start airing?
