"No Pie at the Inn"; "A Great Heartwarming Night"; Finding Joe Screening at Rising Sun


Fewer performances from me over the last fortnight as I had my head stuck in some writing and was concentrating on finishing it for yesterday's deadline. As always it seems, as the deadline approached it got more stressful and the focus sharper. Why can't it be more relaxed? I think I realised the answer yesterday. It's because there's a trade off between developing something and finishing it: you always want something to be as good as possible and so you keep working on it until the last possible moment. I think there are always going to be times when this game gets stressful and this week was one of them. Anyway, there's a sense of relief and satisfaction and I feel I can relax for a moment.

So, the performances over the last fortnight:

"No Pie at the Inn"

"A Great Heartwarming Night"

Don't forget the screening of 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. 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, then I think you might find the film interesting and indeed I hope encouraging. (Throughout this site there are references to the film, I hope to bring them all together in the very near future.)

As always, for up-to-date information about intended performances please refer to the Gig 2012 page.

I hope you have a great weekend.

With Best Wishes,
