Is that Trajan (the most overused movie font, like, ever!)?

:)

bibliobibuli said...

if someone does me a kindness of making a poster for my event, i'm grateful and don't look a gift font in the mouth

you have just volunteered yourself to make the january poster

Sufian said...

I'm thinking times new roman... or (!) brushscript...

Suffian said...

Sorry for being an ass, but there's a typo on the flyer. It's spelled as "Shinji Moriwaki" not 'Sinji'. Yes, I'll be there, too. =)

bibliobibuli said...

thanks suffian.

Greenbottle said...

it would be helpful if you can give a bit of backgroud of some of these good people especially mr awang gondang, mr shinji wokimori and ajai mk....

bibliobibuli said...

haha just come and be (i guarantee it) wowed. a very interesting and varied line-up. if you are less than thoroughly entertained i will buy you lunch (and if you are, you buy lunch for me)

bibliobibuli said...

hmmm why not start with awang goneng whom i'm sure you are going to really enjoy being another east coast person ...

Alice Teh said...

Aiya... should I go to a post-Christmas lunch or this one?... Which one?... Maybe Readings can be 2008 resolution.

bibliobibuli said...

go to your lunch and come after. drag along your hosts and kidnap their christmas cake so we can all have some.

Suffian said...

Shinji Moriwaki is a Hip Hop/Drum 'n Bass MC who is into politically-charged/socially-conscious rhymes in spoken word. He performs with local hip-hop/dnb groups like The Works and The Rebel Scum. Check out his profile on Virb!

We drove about 250 km today to hear AG read A Word in the Head, among other things. Really worth it. It was ssebak and "sejuk telinga mendengar".

amir - am so looking forward to hearing him read. am totally in love with the book.

suffian - many thanks. looking forward to hearing shinji read again.

again i say it - this is an amazing line-up. if you're not partying, come along. and if you are partying, bring along the turkey and let us all party with you. (hey, i'm serious)

amir said...

What book? You talking to me, right? Not to to Amir Muhammad, or Amir Yusoff?

I didn't do no book. Movies, yeah - filming in June and probably signing a multiple movie deal - but no book.

bibliobibuli said...

there are way too many amirs and you keep tripping over each other. all of them seem to be bent on world conquest in one way or another. (can we make any other genralisations about amirs?)

i was actually referring to the amir just above the last comment who signs himself malaysian in riyadh.

so malay male amir 1) not everything is about you 2) i think you'd write a novel i'd like to read 3) see you saturday

amir said...

Ah, thought as much. Was worried that some people are publishing books with my name on them.

Could have saved them all the trouble if I told them that only one person would ever buy books written by me.

See you Saturday, Sharon. Will write the thing that I will read on Friday, as usual.

bibliobibuli said...

only one person? aiyoh man, you think i'm your only fan???

no books but one newspaper is published daily with your name on it. did you know?

gnute said...

Patrick Teoh was awesome lah.

patrickteoh said...

Thank you, gnute. You're very kind. And a BIG thank you to you, Sharon. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be part of your unique and very enjoyable event this afternoon.

And I can't wait to hear more! With lots of pix? Rox.

Manal said...

Sharon, thanks so much for being a cordial host today. As "requested" i am leaving my 1st ever comment here after being a silent now-n-then reader all these while. Really enjoyed the reading session. Saw uncle patrick walking outta the door with chet, but he looked a bit worried. Later on chet told me one of his kids was sick. No wonder he left in a hurry.

I hope to join those sessions again in the future.

bibliobibuli said...

rox - yes, pics are coming

manal - many thanks for coming ... and for leaving a comment at long last :-D

liz said...

Agree with gnute, Patrick was great, and it was good to hear him again after all these years of silence!!! :-)
