Just wanted to say, in addition to posting some amazingly witty posts, I now think you are my hero for scanning the "Bleak Moor Lies" a few years ago. Thinking about the autobiography that may-or may not come out this year had me wanting to re-read it, and most other sites have taken it down by now. Many thanks to you!
i didnt know you lived in glasgow , did you come along to our last strangeways night ? , are you coming to the next one ?
Please, post a picture of your Bona Drag signing, Joe,.. just to let all us 'slow folk' leer and dream.
(no i'm not insanely jealous!! Not at all!!! No way, Jose!)
You'll get a fortnight worth of TV listings from http://www.tvtv.co.uk/
... so come tomorrow, that should provide you with the final 'possible date' for the Linder stuff.
Cheers Frady-cat (frady-cat, scaredy-cat, tee hee, genuine Scottish colloquialisms *insert bagpipes icon here*)
Joe - not promising anything, but.... if there are 4 exhibitors for the Frieze (Jess Flood-Paddock, Linder, Elizabeth Price and Stephen Sutcliffe.), then i have 3 potential Linder dates...
channel 4 Monday 11th October, 23:00, 3 Minute Wonder: Frieze 2010,
channel 4 Tuesday 12th October, 23:05, 3 Minute Wonder: Frieze 2010,
channel 4 Wednesday 13th October, 23:15, 3 Minute Wonder: Frieze 2010
Thanks for the update Joe... I'll try to catch and record it.
As for the signed Sunday... i'm still buzzing!!!
Hey Joe (tee hee, i laughed when i typed that),
anyway, back to business... I recall a while back you mentioned a channel 4 programme was being made and broadcast about Linder and the Darktown Cakewalk.... I was just hoping you'd remember when this is being shown???
No, I didn't take any pics, but there seemed to be loads of folk capturing images all over the place, whether officially or unofficially. A photo couldn't really get it anyway. I think I prefer to remember it my way, fuzzy and hazy as it may be. Even now, almost a week on, little moments that I'd forgotten pop up in my head, and I think 'Did I dream that or did I see it?'
Thanks for the detailed info on the Linder performance. Did you take any pictures of the event (i know you weren't supposed to, but folk often do). It's great that stuff like this is being premiered in sunny Glasgow - gives us a sense of national pride! tee hee.
I'm going to nick your idea for location, sorry!
