Next Gigs and Appearances
Right now, Northampton Council have approved the organisers of Kaya Festival to go ahead, in which case - this is where I am next performing live. These being strange times, watch this space. (Ooh Terry Hall! That's a bit special...)
I am so sad that most of the events I was looking forward to this year had to be cancelled. As well as lots of conventions I was going to with my editor's hat on, I was going to lots of festivals with my pirate's scarf on. But never mind, lots of videos of my award-winning children's comedy group's show The Extraordinary Time-Travelling Adventures of Baron Munchausen are available virtually for now. We can't wait to go adventuring again soon!
The word polymath comes from the Greek: πολυμαθής, polymathēs, “having learned much” i.e. someone who is brilliant at loads of things. I don’t think we use this word enough. Some of us are proud to be “geeks”, which means we are super keen on a particular subject, or “nerds”, also super keen on a particular subject but with less cool t-shirts. I wear these which are pretty darn cool. If you are clever and talented you may have been called worse things than a geek or nerd, but never mind the jealousy. My credo is “Dream, Strive, Achieve”, which is the happy, centred ideal between “Live, Laugh, Love”, and “Bind, Torture, Kill”.
On this website, I would like to enthuse about lots of things – not just what I can do, but also how talented my friends are.
Think about all the horrible people in the world: dictators, haters with followers, online trolls. They all had that one talent and made it work for them! Isn’t it time you took your much vaster potential for awesomeness and made the world a brighter, happier place? Be Leonardo DaVinci! Be Madame de Pompadour! Be Danny Devito (Renaissance Man)!
