The first episode of Old Fi Lo School.
• In line with Centrelink requirements, I’ll be helping out Croxton High School with their Assembly at Melbourne Comedy Festival. Croxton High is a public school near the bottom of the My Schools table. They’re good kids and have taught me a lot about myself, but little about spelling. The assembly will feature dance, music, a Sex Ed demonstration and certificates. There’ll be an ensemble cast including Ben Pobjie and school band The Housecats. I’ll unveil a new song produced by Spod and written with kids from Croxton. Do help spread the word.
• I did a radio interview with Shaun Micallef and an Irish Tina Turner impersonator. I am not much starstruck in this photo. Here is a link to the interview. Shaun has a new show on the ABC later in the year.
• The Bedroom Philosopher Diaries is still available from my Shop. Affirm Press will release the e-book soon. Here’s a review.
• I missed out on a ticket to Radiohead. Scalpers have used the song 2+2=5 as a pricing model.
• I’m playing the Hills Are Alive Festival March 25.
• I have a piece in the current Big Issue.
• Check out Kony 2012’s sinister musical comedy roots and see UK comedian Charlie Brooker tear Invisible Children a new one. Charlie’s show Black Mirror is the best thing I’ve seen in years.

A reading from my Grade 7 Diaries.
April – May 1993.
Gee some A.F. Day tricks were pathetic! Good day though. Dunno who I like at school, Sarah or Bianca. Probably latter. YO MAN.
Yep, I love Bianca. A lot. She is gorgeous. Went to Pauls. Mucked around. BYE.
School was good. I *heart* B.S. Not going to ask her out. Yet. Table tennis was average. SEE YA.
School was not okay. Got hit in head with apple! Gee Mr Verze is funny! Did heaps of work around house. Spent night quiet. SEE YOU.
Had Anzac service at school. Really good. Bianca had hair in a bun. Looks spac! She should change it. Went to N and P’s. BYE.
Bianca likes me I think but I’m pretty sure. School was cool. Went to the library. Had tea. And then just read. SEE YA.
Billy said she said she wanted to go with me! WOW. Came home and mucked around. Went to school social. Pretty cool. BYE. I *heart* Bianca.
Billy was away today with the flu! I missed him! The Bianca thing is forming. I’m sure she likes me. Went to T.T. We won 11-0 LIFES COOL!
I saw Bianca down town. The chances are low of that happening! Someone up above likes me! Went down town. Had tea. SAYONARA (picture of Chinese man).
Bianca knows I like her. That’s something. Raining today. Didn’t do much. Had nice fish for tea. SUMPAI JUMPAH!
I’ve given up on Bianca. She likes Billy. So he can have her. I’ve decided she’s too dull. Had swimming training. That was hard. I must win cross country. BYE MAN.
Bianca is only shy. I still like her. Billy is a good mate. Came home. Went over to Nick’s to sleep. Played IBM. Watched TV. See ya.
