Planet Formerly Known As Pluto

Here's my rough draft for my planetarium piece. I think I want to interview more people, questioning them on how they remember being taught the original nine planets of our solar system; and how they feel that Pluto is no longer a planet.

In this rough draft I only have an edited self-interview. Do you think it would be interesting to try bringing in other short stories and blending them all together?

I'm also very interested in incorporating some "footage" (extracting audio) of home videos of myself reciting the once 9 planets; and possibly some audio from news coverage about the demoted planet Pluto.

This was also the first time I transcribed a script - I think it sounds really weird but I don't know if it's because I'm hearing my own voice or because it sounds as if I'm reading. Does it matter?


  1. Start: My Very Excellent Mother Just Served Us Nine...

    - Audio from me as a 3'

    End: My Very Excellent Mother Just Served Us Nine...

    - Planets being listed not that interesting.
    - Why are people attached to Pluto?
    - Possibly interview more people.
    - Be more YOU and talk about the way you feel about it.

  2. Use the interviews you get and respond to them.
    (talking back ton the responses)

    How did you feel when Pluto was demoted?
