"Don't Do What Daddy Says"; "Excuse Me If I'm Getting Boring"; "What Do You Think Of It So Far?" Phil Morrison, Maija Päivikki Cooper and Paula Curtis; Finding Joe Screening at Rising Sun


Three performances from me this week:

"Don't Do What Daddy Says"

"Excuse Me If I'm Getting Boring"

"What Do You Think Of It So Far?"

However for me the highlight of the week has been these two sublime performances from Phil Morrison, Maija Päivikki Cooper and Paula Curtis on Friday night.


Don't forget the screening of the film about the work of Joseph Campbell, Finding Joe, hosted by Stand-Up Cinema at Reading's The Rising Sun Arts Centre on May 18th at 6:30pm. The start time is early so that the film will end by 8:00pm and not conflict with Bohemian Night Showcase.


Campbell said the following in the last lecture he ever gave:

"In my writing and my thinking and my work I've thought of myself as addressing artists and poets and writers. The rest of the world can take it or leave it as far as I'm concerned."

So if you're an artist, writer, musician , or just someone wanting to break out and go their own way, or even actually dare I say, a Star Wars fan (George Lucas based his original films' stories on Campbell's work), then I think you might find the film interesting and indeed I hope encouraging. Next week I hope to pull together all of this site's reference's to the film and explain why I found it meaningful. I don't expect it to be everybody's cup of tea but if it helps encourage one person along the way to achieving what they want to in their life I think my job will have at least been partly accomplished.

As far as I am aware there is no entry fee but I will check with Stand-Up Cinema and confirm.

Hope your weekend has been good so far.
