After a slight seasonal delay, Getting On with James Urbaniak (a fictional podcast) returns with an episode by the esteemed playwright, screenwriter and blogger Todd Alcott, who has known me since 1989. This one digs deep into the mystery of the James Urbaniak character.

Steel Pond Studios | Portland, Oregon-based steel sculptor Robert Jefferson Travis Pond - Half of what I do is collecting materials. For me, the question is never where to start; it is always when to stop. It is a constant look beyond the object, beyond the form, to what is next. Each circumstance, or in this case, each piece, spontaneously connects to the next. This seemingly random assortment of metal dictates its future in a very fast and spontaneous manner. The sculpture decides for itself what it will look like and when it is complete.

One night, I was on stage, and there was this beautiful little girl — she was probably 8 years old at the time. And she had this beautiful red hair, this beautiful skin, these beautiful green eyes, and she was looking up at me, holding, you know, for an autograph. I said, ‘Well, you’re the prettiest little thing I ever saw. So what is your name?’ And she said, ‘Jolene.’ And I said, ‘Jolene. Jolene. Jolene. Jolene.’ I said, ‘That is pretty. That sounds like a song. I’m going to write a song about that.’
