So here it is, the review I’m sure you’ve all been sleeplessly anticipating. I’m turning into a proper newspaper now, whatever next, obituaries? (hopefully not). Yes, for those of you that didn’t know, last night was the big fundraiser where I put my emcee skills to the test and invited my good friend Harry Baker down for a show. And wasn’t it worth it! I haven’t stopped buzzing since the moment he sheepishly stepped off the train to meet us. People were left lost for words but all was okay because Harry had plenty. Full of laughs and musings he played around with words until his voice just danced with frisk and frolic and I left on a real high, just wanting to rap everything I said from then on. (Of course I could never get close to being as cool as him but it’s always fun to try). So, he got us all hooked when he recited pi, but when he talked about dino’s we were all on a high, so please check him out if you’ve got the time, cos everything he says just sounds better in rhyme. (Shameful really).
Now if you weren’t there (you missed out) but it’s hard to describe exactly what it’s like. I get the feeling that if I told you he was a poet that rapped about maths and lego in a church I wouldn’t have you sold. The chances are, you probably wouldn’t agree with most of what I’m saying here but I’m bored of hearing ‘poetry’s just not my thing’ because realistically is poetry really anyone’s thing? Yet, I didn’t talk to anyone who didn’t thoroughly enjoy it last night, and I talked to most people there. In fact I got comments like “absolutely astonishing” and “the best thing I’ve seen in a long time”. Not bad for someone who stands up and recited pi to approximately a hundred decimal places.
Anyway, the point of all this was to let you know that thanks to all your continued support, this Kenya dream is now five hundred pounds closer. I think I can get a one way ticket now, which could be seen as a good or bad thing I guess but I would quite like to come home at some point 🙂
