We’ve aw been there. A nicht oan the tiles. Dancin shoes oan. Tarted up like a Gregg’s donut at the front o the display. An innocent enough wee swally – or so ye hink. Then, a few hoor later, yer poundin heid goes: “Whit the puck did ye dae last nicht…?”
Yup, it was months ago now, but here’s the audio from my livestream DJ set in April, freshly uploaded:

I was only due to do 2 hours again but the people, they said “MORE!” and I ended up doing an extra half an hour 😛 Note to self: schedule a toilet break in future…
I didn’t get around to working out how to do fancy transitions between the songs in my DJ software but I hope the STRONG SELECTION OF CHOONS makes up for that. (My dancing most definitely did but you only got to see that on the night 😉✨)
Thanks so much to everyone who joined! It was another joyous evening that really lifted my spirits – much needed.
Looking forward to playing some BANGERZ in public now we’re tentatively out and about… 💥
Preparations to set myself up for voiceover work continue, including purchasing a BRAND SPANKING NEW MIC 😀 that I had the chance to deploy whilst recording another Lockdown Literature event story for Liars’ League last week.
My performance was still pretty rough around the edges at this point and not as BEAUTIFULLY HONED as it was after a whole month’s run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, but this is the only filmed performance and, actually, I kinda like how shonky it is.
-me sweating off most of my mascara as it was SO HOT ON STAGE.
-my bike bell breaking and me having to resort to clanging another prop instead to make a noise.
PLUS: see if you can work out where the soundtrack froze and the backup soundtrack had to be played instead… I think I managed to hide my genuine panic/confusion…
And: I’ve done some more story reading for Liars’ League – this time as part of a Lockdown Special, from the comfort of my own home. Here I am reading ‘A Space to Inhabit’ by Lyndsey Croal for their ‘Mystery and Suspense’ event this week:
A strange cloud appears outside a small Scots town… or has it always been there?
You can find the story text and an mp3 of this story reading here, all the other story videos from the night here, and the event podcast here. It was a good night in 🙂
Other than riding the current wave as best I can, I’m continuing to set myself up for voiceover work and my little makeshift studio is coming along nicely, if slowly. Photo evidence, at some point…
