Episode 1084: New Local Publisher To Watch...

Rob just told me on Facebook that he's with Nick Chen on the whole Community versus Party Down issue. Sad times! Seems like there's going to be a movie continuation of the latter. Can't say that I wouldn't watch it, especially if they go all Entourage in following Adam Scott's character's story. (Might be a little odd, since Entourage is gunning for a movie too.) In some local publishing news, it seems like Epigram Books are becoming the publisher to go to for Singaporean drama. They've already published Jean Tay's Boom and Everything But The Brain, as well as Haresh Sharma's Those Who Can't, Teach. Now they've put out Six Plays, a collection of Tan Tarn How's plays, with forthcoming collections of Chong Tze Chien and Ovidia Yu. Incidentally, Tan's newest play, Fear Of Writing, just finished its run. Did think about catching it, but wasn't drawn quite enough to make the effort of fitting it into my schedule of, well, doing nothing. Haha! Going down to Robinson Road again tomorrow because my visa has arrived. This new system for Singaporean visa applicants truly is marvellous.
