How was everyone's evening? Well I hope.
My night was amazing! Tonight was the night I have been waiting for for such a long time! I got to meet Christopher Moore! One of the greatest authors of all time. Here are a list of his books.
Lamb: The childhood story of Jesus Christ as told by his Best Friend Biff
The Island of the Sequined Love Nun
Lust Lizard of Melancholie Cove!
The Stupidest Angel
If I am missing one I apologize But I am going off the top of my head at the moment. If you haven't read any of these please, please, please pick one up preferably Lamb or Island of the Sequined Love Nun or Fool. These are some of my favorite ones of his so please give them a shot, you will not be disappointed.
Tonight I finally got to meet the man!!
In the really cool Coffeehouse and Bookstore called Politics and Prose here in DC Mr. Moore was kind enough to grace the DC area with his presence. I went with my friend Brett, a guy I met when I did King Lear.
The place was packed.
And number Two
I think this is, and I quote loosely.
" An open letter to the person who Peed on the Iron"
I apologize for the video quality and if the sound isn't all that great. I did record it from the back of a bookstore. The stuff you have just watched was only bits and pieces of what this man talked about. He is an epic Storyteller and was hilariously riveting from beginning to end.
And now, here comes the moment we've all been waiting for.. Not only is it finally a picture of me! But it is a picture of me with the man himself!!
Thats me on the left, Moore on the right. That's pretty much the face you see in all of his cover photos too! Great man really nice and very cool.
To Dan: Exellent Beard
I had such a great time meeting him and even waiting in line wasnt so bad because I got to hang out with Brett and catch up with him. Not only that I got to see a mentor of mine, Lennie Raybuck, She is one of the great directors and teachers I have worked with at George Mason University and I got a chance to see her and catch up with her while we were waiting in line. I also get to see another friend Bob, Who actually got his name made fun of by Mr. Moore. What a great story. I think everyone came away with a funny story to tell and that makes this night even better.
I had so much fun tonight I am too wired to go to sleep. Like I said before you have got to check his books out, they are Bawdy, Fun, they have great characters to fall in love with and chock full of "Heinus Fuckery, Heinus Fuckery Most Foul." In all honesty, Moore's books have made me laugh outloud, and have even made me cry a little bit. I love his stories and will read them and pass them on for years to come!
I am definately going to have to go to more book signings. Anyone know of a place somone can get that information?!
