Some photos I took last night at the Evening with Neil Gaiman and Amanda Palmer show I went to. LOVED special guest Meow Meow, who was amazing and really made me want to check out La Soiree.
And because I know I have many Doctor Who loving friends, I got pics of Arthur Darvill for you since he was the other special guest of the evening.
I had a lot of fun at the show. It was much funnier than I expected, and I had no idea Neil had such a nice, soothing enjoyable speaking voice. Amanda is great live and the song about her childhood home actually got me a little choked up.

cold fact: there is no path or job you can take in life that doesn’t involve risk and uncertainty.
if you have the inkling that working in/with music would make you happier than any other job, i’d argue that you’d be happiest coping with the risks and uncertainties associated with working in music instead of dealing with the risks and uncertainties involved in being a doctor, lawyer, veterinarian, astronaut, barista, bus driver or whatever other career choices are currently on your list of possibilities.
many jobs are hard work, but if you love the work, it doesn’t feel like work. if you choose your career path based ONLY on what you think is going to bring you safety and security instead of adding in the factors of what will bring you joy and happiness, chances are high you will wind up living a life of quiet desperation. if you factor your own joy into the decision, chances are also higher you’ll work harder and be a generally more valuable member of this giant chaotic society we call the human race.
pick your poison, and make sure it’s a poison you really like the taste of. you’re going to be drinking a shit ton of it.
True. All of this.
Wisdom, right here.
