- My radio series ‘Funemployed’ will air on RN’s Books & Arts Daily from Feb 5. Each episode will contain one brand new Bedroom Philosopher song, to be compiled on a forthcoming album ‘Funemployed LP’ to be released Mar 20 through MGM.
- Dear Amanda Palmer has given Funemployed a thorough plugging on her blog. “Perfect for artists who have been at it for years and want to read the story of someone who’s telling it like it fucking is.”
- Crazy Bastards has been remembered through a series of recently published stills.
- Funemployed was featured in Melbourne Writers Festival director Lisa Dempster’s Top 10 of the year. (Grug and the 3-D Printer narrowly missing out).
- Godspeed Stella Young. I was heartened to meet her and learn she was a fan. I was fortunate to have a few pow-wows in passing and interview her for my series. I attended her memorial and was bemused that every time the word ‘crip’ was mentioned the teletext person misinterpreted it. They had ‘quip’, then ‘crypt’, and even ‘crib.’ I couldn’t tell if it was accidental or a conspiracy to omit Stella’s controversial empowerment term from the public realm. “You know what special is? Another word for sh*t.”
