Friday Night Foodie Action in Masan
I’ve ended up in Masan this weekend for the latest leg of the Twelve Singing Animals tour. Not the prettiest of port towns and it seemed that all there was near our hotel was a Homeplus, a Paris Baguette and five hundred seedy looking night clubs. Luckily after a quick alleyway exploration a few of us ended up in a ramshackle rustic restaurant that served heavenly 보리밥쌈정식 (Barley rice with...
An Interesting Evening
The year of the dragon is already bring surprising events and future possibilities… Went for a meeting tonight with a well known Korean film director and his team. Tasted his home made rice cake soup and talked about setting up an audition next week. Not getting my hopes up, but there may be a role for me in his upcoming film… Maybe. The rice cake soup was fantastic (chunks of belly...

The Secret Life Of My Gun Toting Wife
I’m alone for the Lunar New Year - Just me, my computer, a script to edit and the promise of roast pork and a glass of wine if I work hard. My wife on the other hand is halfway up a mountain, near the east coast, with a rifle slung across her shoulder and a bloodlust in her eyes. She tells me she’s shooting a feature film, but I fear that the demons have returned and she’s just...

Listen To This Before It Disappears... →
Isy Suttie has transformed her 2011 stand up show into a half hour of radio. It’s called Pearl and Dave and it is strange, funny, beautiful and oddly moving. The iplayer link will cease to work at the end of today, but you can get it as a podcast here. Worth a listen if you have a spare 30 minutes and enjoy musical comedy monologues about accountants, butlins and pen-pals.
Year’s End An audio version of my Limericks...
It’s been a busy old week. Auditioning new actors, teaching kids how to be starfish, walking the streets of Daejeon and rehearsing a new tiger into our show are just a few of the things I’ve been up to. Next week promises to be more of the same, with the added joy of creating and intelligibly writing down nine different pieces of choreography for kids. I’ve not collapsed from...
Pictures Coming To Life
It’s been a busy couple of days back in Seoul, but very productive. I spent a good part of this morning looking at sketches for illustrations for my book series. I’m deeply in love with some of the pictures my illustrator has created. He has plucked word images from my notes and turned them into the pictures I hoped they would be. There’s even one picture in particular that is...
