Here's today's Minchin Monday entry. It's another one of my favorites. For some reason Tim's appearances on BBC late shows are some of my favorites. His perpetual harassment of Wossy is good times, kids. I don't know if he writes these pieces more or less on the fly than ones that have made it onto … Continue reading Minchin Monday and Five Poofs
I love Tim's funny stuff. It got me through a seven hour flight from Honolulu to Houston. But he has a few very serious, very lovely little songs as well, and they are worth knowing about. Here they are. I don't have anything else to share today. It's weird. This one is good. But … Continue reading Minchin Monday and Seriousness

Had I heard this text come in I'd have answered it immediately, though, because unlike a question - "what's the name of the third kid from … Continue reading Minchin Monday and Hot Damn!
I have had people give me their opinion on my work. People do it all the time. Like Tim, I'm used to hearing people say nice things about what I write and being the critic myself. My inner critic is harsh and unforgiving. It insults me all day, every day, in the back of my head. … Continue reading Minchin Monday and Critics
