A NEW SHY YETI INTERVIEW BY OUR FRIENDS IN BEARGRRRIA!
This week we have in store for you...
A FURTHER SLIGHTLY-OVER 60 SECOND CHAT WITH SHY YETI
A. Well, it’s due out in early Summer and is called ARE WE THERE, YETI?
A. It’s both; although as with FUNERAL FOR A SHOE there are far more short stories than poems – although there are a fair few vignettes that are somewhere in between. One way or another you have 100 new yeti items to examine and hopefully to enjoy! I’m sorry, if you don’t like it then you won’t get your money back – I suggest that maybe you seek the attentions of a head doctor. Or maybe read it all again. And again! I mean – how many times do you listen to an album before you like it; usually more than once. I jest… Although you probably MAY still need to see that head doctor.
A. Well, as it happens there are three booked – one coming up in just over a month to replace the postponed Poetry Café for the 10th anniversary of second collection, ROLLERCOASTER. This was to have taken place on Friday 16th March, however the venue double-booked; which is partly how I’ve ended up with three dates over the next five or six months; for as in apology they gave me two additional nights for free. The first of these shows is on Saturday 5th May at The Poetry Café, the next on Friday 8th of June and the final one on Wednesday 5th September. On top of that I’m also hoping to do a show for the 10th anniversary of THIRD TIME LUCKY sometime before Christmas.
Q. Will you be back on the radio this year?
A. Well, there are a couple of unedited episodes to come – one of them is a special episode that was provisionally meant to be last year’s Summer special, which would have celebrated the publication of my collection VAMPIRE COWS OF SCUNTHORPE. Some of the other bits and pieces I may well put together with more recent footage (such as the scenes filmed in Broadstairs in early March 2012) to make full-length episodes… I’ll see what happens nearer the time! And yes, as far as
Q. And what of the episodes that you have already recorded this year?
A. The year began with me completing work on the last few YETI HUNT USA episodes – not to mention filming during my February visit to Radio Wey; however I’ve now moved on to making, editing and posting episodes filmed on location. They’ve all been UK-based, so far – but good fun, I hope… January began with SHY YETI OUT IN THE NEW
Q. Are there any more locations that you can reveal yet for later in the year?
A. I can tell you where I hope to film – taking into consideration that if I go to the States this year it is currently not booked or specifically planned; so I’ll tell you more about the trips that I do know about. After
Q. Other than poetry and videos are there any other projects in the pipeline for 2012?
A. There’s a collection of Mouse Of Commons stories that I’ve been working on for several years called THE MCWHISKERS ARCHIVES, which is made up of short stories that I wrote between 2007 and 2008. There is also a series of scripts called THE BEAST OF FRIENDS, which I actually began plotting back in 2004 – the pilot episode was completed in 2010 and appeared in my YETI HUGS AND OTHER HORRORS book, last year. The first 8 scripts that I originally envisioned were completed between 2010 and early 2012 and are being released as part of the 20th anniversary celebrations for my
Q. Are you planning any more
Q. That's good news. Thank you, Mr Yeti.
