Hi Everyone! It has been some time since I wrote something meaningful here, rather with my lack of crazy travel adventures I thought to entertain you with the videos I have been making instead. Still, as you can see I have been doing stand up of late and it has got me thinking about…well.. writing again. This isn’t improv, you have to think up funny stuff first and then say it on stage at some time later. Sometimes you even say the same thing multiple nights, whoa that’s kind of a weird thing for an improver.
While I am a stationary creature of late, I have a few trips planned in the future which id like to share with you. In the meantime, if you like my style of crazy travel stories, you will love this guy, his name is Francis Tapon and I met him on his latest trip to Estonia last year. He is a super cool guy who is documenting his journeys through Eastern Europe really well and putting them into his next book. I just read the first few chapters of the book and I love it and I think if you love travel stories mixed with a bit of history, you will love it too. Beside his entertaining anecdotes he has taught me a few things about the history of these countries which I think are so rad.
Check out Francis page at http://francistapon.com/Books/The-Hidden-Europe/ and from there you can download the first few draft chapters. It makes a great read and makes me wanna hit the road again again.
Rock on and keep making the very many good cultural learnings
Dead Letters is the new show written by Edmund Iffland and Hamish Sinclair and put on by Studio Four, who do the funniest comedy on campus at UNSW, Sydney. Even though I am a world away, I am helping with their publicity and the guys back in Sydney produced this cool short ad for the show. Congrats to the team, student theatre almost never gets cool promo stuff like this, hats off!
Update! The second video has been released! And its got Hamo too!
