The Unseelie (Reprise)

Photograph copyright Len Panecki.

A year ago I went to the Midsummer Faerie Rade dressed as a Blue Fairy (original post here) and some great shots were taken by some professional photographers – you know, the types that walk around with actual cameras rather than phones.

This year I missed the event. However, a couple of days before it, this appeared, taken by the indomitable Australian photographer Len Panecki. I didn’t quite know who he was when I met him, but after a bit of internet searching I was rather impressed. He’s a cool guy.

This may be the best photo of me there ever was or will be, and I still look like a bit of a creeper. Oh well.

Gotta love Puddles…

With Puddles during his famous after-show photo sessions...

A friend took me and a bunch of others to see Puddles Pity Party for the Melbourne Comedy Festival recently.

Taking audience interaction to terrifying, uncomfortable and hilarious limits, Pity Party combines karaoke-style tunes with stage props and story elements, never actually speaking, only ever singing (he has a voice that just blows you away), as he searches for love among the crowd. Absolutely recommended. Splendid and inspiring show.
