Bottomless Bottle of Beer Reading
I gave my reading yesterday evening to a small but friendly audience of about 25 people. More students might have come, but I had some unexpected competition: Running Man. SBS was filming the show on Ewha's campus and even in the ECC itself, and since the show's regulars are celebrities, a large crowd of students were gathered in our building to see the popular comedian Yoo Jae-suk compete with his fellow celebrities to avoid capture while seeking some quested treasure. Ironically, and much to my dismay, the show's filming was slated for precisely the same time as my reading! But the shows must go on . . .
My wife Sun-Ae took the photos and first caught me approaching the Lounge:
She next photographed me waiting for people to arrive:
Then came a photo of me preparing:
And chatting with early arrivals:
Finally, the reading itself . . . while looking down, apparently around the beginning since that slide's the book cover:
Still reading . . . reciting, while looking up:
After that photo, Sun-Ae relaxed and enjoyed the performance. She says I read well, and since she's my best critic, she must be right, but I'll wait until I see the video to judge for myself, and if that recording is good enough, we'll put it on YouTube for all interested to see.
Until then, thanks for the interest . . .
