One door closes, and another one opens. Or something like that.
Much fun last night at The FIXX Reading Series, many thanks to La Guth our andlessly and awesomely cool host and big props to good friends and better writers Tim Hall who read from his new joint Full of It, which we are happy to report way rocks, and Robert Duffer who read a wonderfully moving piece about a guy, a cat and his impending fatherhood. Really, really good stuff all around. And now it's done, most sad, except for the fact that we get to read at the drunken reading lovefest otherwise know as Reading Under the Influence next Wednesday November 5th, which is too cool, way too cool actually, and co-hosted by none other than Robert Duffer himself? Weird, right? And sure to provide even more literary fun, as the night will also double as an informal, quasi-public release for Repetition Patterns. We would add here that we get to read two pieces that night and while we are encouraged to read from other writer's work as well as our own, we have also been told its our party and we should do what we want, so in trying to be as narcissistic as possible, something we always enjoy, we are thinking of reading a somewhat raunchy and previously unread in public section of Most Likely You Go Your Way and I'll Go Mine and a piece from the never read anywhere Repetition Patterns too. Now, that sounds pretty tempting doesn't it? We think so, so join us, won't you? Thanks.
