So, this morning is nice. I threw on the Anvilfire.com t-shirt because it's fairly mild, but we are supposed to get slammed with 4-6 inches of rain this weekend. I am finishing up a 5 sword order, packing it up talking to the customer. The client wanted forged letters in the pommel, "SM" and "LR". For some retarded reason I made "LM". Client contacts me and lets me know I made a mistake. Glad this happened before I shipped it! So, I go down to the cellar and begin work on the R (BTW that is a pain in the *** to make from one piece, but I did it). Some time into the project my dog starts barking at the front door. I climb up the spiral stairs and see a TV news camera crew outside. They want to interview my neighborhood about the ensuing storms and how it will affect our flood zone. During the interview the reporter asks me what I was in the middle of doing (I guess my hands were dirty). I tell him I was forging steel and that I do blacksmithing. Well immediately he asked if he could get some footage of it. Well SURE thing! Come on in! So the reporter, a camera man and an intern all crowd into my basement and watch me demo some welding, round rod to square forging, twisting and bending (all the while I am wearing the Anvilfire.com shirt). I tell them this isn't the first time I've had a camera crew down here. He asks why and then I tell him I am the Great Nippulini. They hit a goldmine and didn't know it! Now they're asking questions about being a world record holder, the reporter even remembers seeing footage of my work. I took them out back and showed them my sculptures, the camera guy immediately ran to the creek to take more footage. It was amazing! So, not only did Nippulini get air, but the Anvilfire site did, my clients swords are in it, and I got to quip my wit about some weather.

Supposed to air at either 4 or 6 PM at http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/
