Funemployed is going fabuloso! There’s a bunch of artist testimonials at justinheazlewood.com. It’s been described as “like getting a hug” and “like getting a punch in the face.” Amanda Palmer tweeted that we’ve both written the same book. Art is in the air.
I’ll be in conversation at the National Non-Fiction Festival next Sunday at Deakin Uni (Geelong Campus): www.wordforwordfestival.com.au. Sunday 24th I’ll be hosting the Funemployed panel at Melbourne Writers Festival – interviewing John Safran, Angie Hart, Ben Watt (UK), Clem Bastow & Tom Doig. Tickets: http://www.mwf.com.au/session/funemployed/#tickets.
My Advice Booth reprise at Sun Bookshop was fab. This lad posed ‘I want to study philosophy but there’s no job!’ ‘Don’t let that stop you,’ I replied.
Brisbane: I’ll be appearing at Queensland Poetry Festival as The Bedroom Philosopher and hosting a Funemployed panel at Big Sound.
I’ll be supporting the great SPOD for two shows in Sydney at the Lansdowne Sep 19 and in Melbourne at the Old Bar Sep 26.
I’m living by myself for the first time. (Back in Thorndog, where I belong). I set my CD player alarm clock to AM instead of PM and came home to “How Bizarre” blaring.
