  • I am writing Pigeon letters

    It’s been a while since I wrote a letter that wasn’t an attempt to get out of a parking fine. It’s been even longer since I wrote correspondence by hand that wasn’t a postcard. And for the remainder of 2010 I’ll be writing and receiving letters that have nothing to do with 15-minute parking zones […]

  • Deleted Scene from The Greatest Blogger in the World

    Deleted Scenes. They’re bonus material used to pad out the special features of a DVD. We’re always very interested to watch them and they almost always let us down. ‘Oh, I see why they didn’t use that,’ we say. ‘But it’s nice the producers put it on the DVD for us.’ Keeping this in mind […]

  • The Greatest Blogger book launch

    The Greatest Blogger in the World was officially launched last week at Readings Carlton in Melbourne by author/broadcaster Tony Wilson. It was a lovely evening. Tony said nice things about the book, lots of people came to listen to him, most importantly, I got to wear a suit jacket. And it wasn’t even a wedding. […]

  • It’s Real

    It’s a pretty weird feeling receiving your own book in the mail.
