Like X-mas

May 26, 2008

Getting geared up for the comics festival, although experience dictates that I will likely be disappointed. Through the studio and my job at publisher Faraos Cigarer, I can follow the chaotic cavortings of the organizers pretty closely.Of course nothing is written in stone yet, as is to be expected for an event like this; however, at times it seems like the responsible parties don’t even know one end of the chisel from the other.

It follows that the actual festival and its program isn’t what gets me excited these days. Previous festivals have got me jaded, and I anticipate plenty laughable mixups and planning lapses. What I am looking forward to is meeting the other guests that have through some incredible stroke of coincidence been invited. Martin tom Dieck. David B. Barbucci and Canepa. I’ve listed them in more detail previously. And I’m really, really looking forward to seeing some of the Danish colleagues that I haven’t seen since, oh, last, two years ago.

And jeez, let there be readers … I’m so nervous I could shit, whether anybody will care if I’m there or not. Because I bitch and I moan about my own importance, but I know full well it might all be in my head. I can be a real emo sometimes.
