Featuring problems with pacing, riding over slumps, totally different experiences, 30-year anniversaries, terrific venues, Fringe memories, swan songs, retained poignancy, the challenges of dealing with audience volunteers, and also the challenge of being an audience volunteer. Puckin’ Ariel! (Length 20:29)

  1. Just thought you’d like to know that I was just notified of the marks I got for this essay. I got a distinction (75%) which I am very please with as I wrote the last part of it wioth a massive sinus infection.

  2. Re. writing while people are talking in the background…

    It’s a skill I have learnt over many years although there have been times that I have write about what I was listening to instead of the essay topic!! I find writing in total silence distracting, although my younger brother says that he can’t write with background noise.

  3. Nerd!!

    That’s awesome. I’ll make sure Elizabeth sees your comment. (Although I don’t know how you can write while listening to people jabber….)

  4. Thought you guys might like to know I listened to this week’s podcast as I was writing an essay on the social differences and inequailties shown in science fiction or utopian/dystopian fiction for my Media and Society class at university.

    While I didn’t write it on Star Trek ( I wrote about George Orwell’s 1984 which is one of my all-time favourite novels), I found it very enlightening and amusing as always!
