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.”
