In Singing The Blue I wrote a defense and celebration of musical stand-up comedy, one of the more maligned forms of the art. I won the correspondent of the month prize for that. OoooOOOoooh.

My Car's Earning More Than Me is the most recent article from my fevered pen (fingers on keyboard actually). It looks at the economics of driving to a gig. The result is somewhat given away by the title, though. On the other hand, I do get to mention my favourite motorway bridge (pictured).
