I have been in Thailand for the past week. I’m itching to do some painting and have been doing a few sketches over my trip. I’ve also managed to read three books and gave up on my forth as it was terrible thirty pages in and didn’t seem to have much hope in getting better. The first book I read was “The Beach” and that is a must read. The second was Michael Caine’s, “The Elephant to Hollywood” which is also a must. It’s interesting to see Hollywood and the possible world of acting through his era and words. Judging from his book he seem to have very good humor. Some of his writing is hilarious! The third read was, “The Alchemist” which is an easy enlightening read. I also highly recommend it.

Australia’s Burlesque Festival was held at at Red Bennies on Saturday and Sunday night. I was working both nights and got to watch all the shows! It was such a fun evening with all sorts of hilarious acts which even included acrobatics. I was so jealous of all the performers. I wanted to be up there myself. I will be performing in the next month but it doesn’t seem to be soon enough.
Over the next week or so I am placing an order for my new business cards I made with one of Peter Coulson’s photographs. I will be shooting with him tomorrow. I’m also waiting to receive a copy of a drama short film I acted in recently. I more recently danced in a “Scarlets” film clip, directed by Stuart Simpson. They were a lot of fun to work with and are an incredible band. I’ve never shot a film clip, its so different to what I’ve done before. You seem to have more freedom and spontaneity with what you do.
