In contemplating the telephone answering machine, what better place to turn
than Los Angeles---a town known for its phones. It's a city that never
shuts up, or so the statistics would make you think, with telephones, cell
phones, pagers, and voice mail boxes.
Writer, comedian and actor Taylor Negron is from Los Angeles. He's best
known as the guy who delivers pizza to Sean Penn in "Fast Times at
High." Taylor averages between 17 and 27 phone messages a day and he's one
of those people who saves his tapes. Independent producer Valerie Velardi
sifted through two months of Taylor Negron's messages and created this
portrait of an artist as an answering machine.
