Tim Michin x2

Guess what?

After I bought the Seattle Tim Minchin tickets, he is now playing Portland!!  And at probably the closest club to my house in town.  Woohoo!!

So, I will be at that show.....and maybe Seattle if I cannot sell those tickets - let the Tim Minchin stalking commence!!

Besides Terry Pratchett

and a host of other talented writers....Neil Gaiman is one of my favorites. Something about how he puts a sentence together always moves me. I have been very busy this year so far, almost to the point of feeling out of control, madness in the not good way.

For some reason sitting in my office wondering how in the world I was going to get through all this I remembered this poem from last year from Mr. Gaiman.

Helps me keep things in perspective :)

If you have never heard this, click on the link, it is always a pleasure to hear him speak, or you can just read the poem at the bottom of the email.

May your coming year be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art — write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in the next year, you surprise yourself.

…I hope you will have a wonderful year, that you’ll dream dangerously and outrageously, that you’ll make something that didn’t exist before you made it, that you will be loved and that you will be liked, and that you will have people to love and to like in return. And, most importantly (because I think there should be more kindness and more wisdom in the world right now), that you will, when you need to be, be wise, and that you will always be kind.

I got Tim Minchin tickets

Woohoo!!! He is playing in Seattle....about a 5 hour drive from here - love Seattle gives me an excuse to spend a weekend hanging out up there!

I will be there on Friday, June 24th  - I could not be happier.  I finally get to see him live.

Now if Billy Connolly would just play Seattle that would be perfect!  Cause as much as I love Tim Minchin and Eddie Izzard and Dylan Moran and Tommy Tienan and Lee Evans and Bill Bailey and Chris Rock and Kat Williams and Robin Williams and Paula Poundstone and Jimmy Carr and Catherine Tate and Russel Brand and Ross Noble and Sean Locke and Stephen Lynch the late George Carlin and Richard Pryor and Sam Kinison and Noel Fielding and Dave Chappell and Demetri Martian and Steven Wright and Lewis Black and Mike Ward and Eddie Murphy and of course, Lenny Bruce (I am sure I forgot a few) - Billy Connolly is my all time favorite.

But since Billy is not coming to Seattle and Tim is....on June 24th - he will be my favorite comic!!

A little Minchin to celebrate!!!
