And I’m off to the Oscars. No, wait. Been reading Matt Fractions Twitter coverage (twitterage?) of the awards.
I’m really off to teach comics for the next four weeks. It’s going to be a logistic limbo of connecting trains between Malmoe and Holbak (Shit Creek, Denmark) since I want to go home and see my kids every day. The school has set me up with a room on the premises but I’d rather commute five hrs a day(!) than be away from the family.
Plus, I can get some (comic lettering) work done on the train, so I’m fully paid up for my time
Starting off today by repeating the same speech four times to different groups of students to enlist them to the course/cause. Repetition is fun (?) and hopefully effective. Should keep statistic lists of enrollment by group to check on own performance. First group is an obvious no-win since I will have no clue what I’m saying. By last session I’ll be going on pure coffee-induced stamina and routine, so that’s a goner, too.
Betting the rest of the course on groups two and three. If I get my little speech together, that is, otherwise there’ll be lots of quality time with the young’uns…
[Edit: seems like I landed a whopping fifth of the entire student body for my little course, or my maths are awhack. Who said comics were dead, motherfucker?!]
