Bittersweet Bruce

Tickets went sale this morning. Bruce in Perth!! I lucked out and got tickets for the Friday show, but plans went awry so no tickets for Saturday. I’m not really optimistic about fixing that. Both shows seem totally sold out. It means I am going, but only to one Perth show and Marianne won’t be joining me. This is really disappointing. I know she’s not the world’s biggest Bruce fan, but she wanted to go and I wanted her to be there. I hope there’ll be a third show and another chance.

In amongst the madness I bought tickets to the second Melbourne show as well. Suddenly I’m going to the other side of the country with my brother for Broadtrip 2: The Bruce Continues…  Should be fun. Just need that third Perth show and all will be well.

Between September 2011 and June 2012 Alisa Krasnostein and I produced four episodes of Live and Sassy, an informal discussion podcast about issues of interest to us surrounding the publishing business.

After some discussion we’ve decided to officially close the podcast. It was a lot of fun, but as with some other ventures, there just wasn’t the time to keep it going. We’d like to thank Alan Beatts, who guested on one episode, and all of our listeners. And I’d like to thank Alisa, who was a terrific co-host on the episodes.
