Sarah Martini is closing in on the end of her term as "Rock Girl," an annual promotion/contest that 102.9 FM "The Hog" promotes heavily on its station and at area events.
Casting calls for the new Rock Girl begin April 23 from 8-10 p.m. at Whiskey Bar, and run through May 6. Then, fans can vote through the station's Web site or through Time Warner Cable On Demand. In June, it gets serious, with finalist events leading up to the crowning of a new Rock Girl on June 25.
So, with "Rock Girl Sarah" starting to wrap up her term, we asked her five quick-hitting questions about her year as a local celebrity.
OnMilwaukee.com: When does your term end, and what was it like?
Sarah Martini: It ends on Saturday, June 25. It was really awesome. I have met tons and tons of people. I've gotten to do a lot of fun promotions, concerts, Summerfest and State Fair shows. It's been really cool.
OMC: Would you say it's changed your life?
SM: Yes, it's definitely got me to be more outgoing. I'm a lot more fun than I usually am.
OMC: Was this the first time you've done anything like this? Have you done any promotional or modeling work before?
SM: I'm around people all the time, so I know how to handle myself around large groups of people. I've done pageants and stuff before.
OMC: Do you have any advice for women who want to be the next Rock Girl?
SM: Definitely come out of your shell and be as outgoing and fun as possible. Don't be intimated by anyone.
OMC: What's next for you after your term is over?
SM: I'm going to take a little time off. I do have a modeling agency that I've come in contact with through the radio station. We'll see where that leads to.
OMC: I'm supposed to ask you whether blondes have more fun ...
SM: It's going pretty well so far ... we're getting there. But yes, I definitely understand why they say that. It's very true.

I went to Vegas with a plan, and that plan was to have no plan. I came here to get away from work, not to do more of it, like I usually do on "vacation." But that wasn't in the cards, for three reasons.

Not everything sucked when we were kids. I know this because my daughter plays with a bunch of the toys my parents saved from my childhood. As the new "Star Wars" opens this weekend, I'm reminded that we grew up in the golden age of action figures. Before video games and technology turned them into something else.
