Everything's alright. It's alright. Just pretend it's not happening.
Trailer 1 for the new book Media Unfriendly
This book is a collection of deceptions, of reflections, of fictions, of distractions and distortions. ‘Media Unfriendly’ features vignettes, short stories, improvisations, meditations and sketches inspired by, but not exclusive, to John Simm, Five Star, Elvis impersonators, cream jeans, androids, Italo disco, Nicole Kidman, media barons, psychosis, local councils, Swedish pop groups and idea material one cannot mention in a family publication. It requires your emotional and financial investment, and your attention span. You could ‘Like’ if you are a slave to platitudes. Or buy it, if this blurb is not considered too smug to the point that you want to smash the authors face in. With a horse skull.
Excited about the new Boards of Canada album. I’ve been a big fan of these guys for many years. The album is out on Warp Records June 10th 2013.
There will be ‘media’ related events soon.
Watched my debut play (above) The Travesty the other night. I will be writing my own report about it and its journey at http://wnstnly.wordpress.com/ later this week.
The Travesty is an original play by Jason Winstanley whose development and world premiere performances will be partly funded by the Arts Council Grants for the Arts scheme as one of the headline events at the Words Together 2013 Literary festival. The new piece will be performed at the Mill at the Pier in Wigan on the 11th and 12th of April 2013.
The venue capacity is approximately 100 and tickets are £5 each. Tickets can be reserved by sending an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phoning 01942 723012. Any remaining tickets will be sold on the performance night.
