Do you have a book strategy?

I have a whole heap of half read & hardly read non fiction books, so this year I decided to get through some of them. It’s not going that well. Does anyone else have a book strategy? Let me know via the comments button or @anunknowncomic

Bursting the poetry bubble

Apparently we’re currently experiencing a resurgence in poetry. This by my reckoning/The Guardian is the second such resurgence in just under 10 years. Naturally I have not been involved in either resurgence but should I ever return to world of spoken word, it’s safe to say that it will be the beginning of the end for poetry. And I don’t want to worry anyone riding the gravy train that is poetry but over the last couple of years I’ve built up a mini collection of new poems…. Watch this space!!

Inspiring criticism.

I do find it somewhat amusing when people say under Jeremy Corbyn there’s now a culture within the Labour party where you can’t criticise the leadership. Since he was elected leader he’s been criticised by his own MPs, former Labour MPs & former Labour PMs. If anything his leadership has inspired way more criticism within his own ranks than less.

Wasting time saving time.

I’m always trying to find ways of best utilising my time mainly because I don’t have much of it. That’s why this Monday I tried to record a prongcast (a podcast I do with my mate Prong2) during my boy’s nap time.

There was always a risk this wouldn’t work as his nap times do vary but I thought it was a risk worth taking.

Naturally things did not go to plan as the boy didn’t take his nap til about 10 mins after Prong2 had gone home. I doubt I’ll be doing anything like this any time soon although knowing me I wouldn’t fully rule it out.

Authority figure.

Some people seem to have an air of authority and some people don’t. I’m not going to say which camp I fall into BUT the other week I made an announcement in the Year 11 assembly (I work in a school) and 15-20 children started laughing, to the extent the Head of Year felt the need to say, “What’s so funny?!” There was nothing intrinsically funny in the message the humour came from the fact it was me delivering it.

Feel free to let me know if you struggle to be taken seriously (via the comments button or @anunknowncomic).

Do you still use business cards?

I recently made a handful of business cards promoting my prongcast.
I left one of these business cards in one South London bar and it got me thinking, do people still use business cards now we’re all linked on social media?

Let me know when physical marketing (business cards, flyers, posters etc worked for you. Thanks.

Bollards & cones to Birmingham

I’m somewhat fascinated by YouTubers, partly because I know so little about them and yet they are so massive.

Take James Charles for example, who brought Birmingham to a standstill at a meet and greet due to 8000 people turning up.

I’m pretty certain I wouldn’t be able to bring Birmingham to a standstill even if I went to Birmingham with bollards & cones with the sole intention of bringing it to a standstill.

Feel free to let me know which YouTubers you would recommend to someone like me (clueless & old). Cheers
