Well I never. Good oldRio Ferndinand (he of the "oh I forgot to go for my dope test 3 times") has now, after 3 years cogitation, arrived at the conclusion that the England soccer time sufferred in the Euro Championship as a result of the celebrity circus and 'wag' mania. Boy oh boy that's insight for you!In another 3 years maybe he'll grow a further chromosome to attach to the other pair!
Don't you just hate this celebrity (euphemism for deadbeat) stuff. Why don't we just cart them off to some deserted shore and let them get on with 'dressing each other naked', 'espousing that 'they'r worth it', and poncing around in perfectly good jeans (well at £200 a shot they should be) with the a*se ripped out.
Have spent some time joining myspace and have uploaded my first batch of songs. Am enjoying the music stuff and it's once again coming to the resue of the blight of 'playwright overload.'
Eva Cassidy Story looking great and am off to Peterborough tomorrow to catch up. It's a satisfying feeling watching something you created take place - it would now be nice to get some of the owed money off the producer though!!
Anyway onwards and upwards as they say.
toodle ooo!

it's along way to norwich

"It's a long way to Norwich" Could that just be a song title? Naah doesn't quite cut it like Tipperary does it? Rather like 'the Wolverhampton Linesman' or 'By the time i get to Swindon'. Have to keep working on that.
Eva went terrific in Norwich -1200 people on their feet at the end was a very satisfying sight. The guys did well and are as i write in the lovely island of Jersey for 3 days. Have fun guys.
Can TV get any worse i ask myself. the short answer is 'yes it can'. Everything is an imitation of the current 'big' thing. Isn't everyone p****d off with dramas about relationships going astray, dysfunctional families, 3rd rate comedy shows - thank god for the re runs of Frasier and the Simpsons - good on you Bart!
CD is coming on well and i'm recording with the very talented Tracey Dare at the weekend who is adding a duet part to a couple of numbers. I find music very therapeutic after the trials and frustrations of the theatre business. Waiting for responses from producers is like 'waiting for godo' to the power 100.
"oneactplays" going well this year after a somewhat lean 2007 and am working on launching a new site - twoactplays - to feature full length stuff aimed at the amateur market whilst retaining "leglessproductions" for the pro stuff. Also about to start filing for the u-tube video of "Big Mack" a song Johnny Cash would almost certainly have recorded were the great man still with us.
anyway almost time to get in the car and mosey on down to dorset so see yah!!
