All entries for Monday 11 February 2008
February 11, 2008
I'm not going to get a chance today to write properly, because this afternoon I'm writing about Tape and digital video for my latest chapter (I hope to share some ideas that come out of this later in the week) and compering this evening. I don't want to rush my next planned entry as I really liked Juno and such admiration will take a little time to express. Therefore - more of a note today, just to keep in the habit.
THE RECKLESS MOMENT

8.30 doors 9 show
NO SHIRT, NO SERVICE!
I'm hosting this show this evening. Kevin Shepherd is a really underrated comedian - he's been on the circuit for longer than I've been watching live comedy, and I've never seen him be less than hilarious. I'm also excited about seeing Joey Page, as he comes highly recommended by Matthew from Pappy's Fun Club. Iszi has been good on her last couple of appearances at Reckless, and I'm looking forward to seeing Heather's first gig in ages. I don't know Phil Hasted or Dave Howat - but it's always lovely to watch new comedians and meet new people.
And here's some recommended reading:
- Johann Hari - 'Rowan Williams has shown us one thing - why multiculturalism must be abandoned.'
- Kristin Thompson - 'Do sell us shorts' (on the Oscar-nominated short-length films).
- Frank Curreri - 'Varner: Winning is the best high' (on Jamie Varner, preparing for WEC fight against Rob McCullough on Wednesday).
- Elisabeth Mahoney - 'Where's your favourite place to listen to the radio?'
