I hope he dressed up like a beatnik, goatee and everything and he pounds on a bongo every time he finishes a poem.

Sometimes Billy can be funny, cool and down to earth but other times he comes off as an self-indulgent “artistic”-freakjob. I think this falls into the later category.

Oh goodness. I can't even begin to imagine what might be in that thing.

I don't know, the whole idea sounds silly to me, but it is for charity and who knows, it might be funny. or something.

actually you're just realising how gay it would be to actually attend a poetry reading. Its understandable.

if i lived out there I would go. Thirty five isn't bad, since it is for chairty. I wonder if you could write it off :think:

Oh well. I have the idea that it'd be best if he just read out of that little brown MCIS booklet

I don't know, I'm curious. I'm still wondering exactly what I paid $35 dollars for, but this is all very interesting to say the least.

he's playing in a venue that holds only give or take, 400 people.

it mentioned somewhere that he might be playing songs......

and it's really not being heavily promoted. The only major publicity this got was a small blip on Metro Mix (http://www.metromix.com) and that's it.

I'm going in blind on this one. It's a bit scary in a weird way, but exciting too.

In a couple of weeks, I'll let you all know how it goes.

I'm going. I just got my ticket yesterday. I haven't heard anything about him playing songs, nor do I know how likely it maybe be, but it'd be awesome if he did. Is anyone else from the board even going?
