FUN PANDEMIC DISTRACTIONS
No. 101 International Arts Fun | Comedy Arts Fun | Crafty Arts Fun
I am LOVING all of the online creative efforts artists all over the world are contributing to the new online paradigm. Here's a few that keep me coming back for more.
INTERNATIONAL ARTS FUN:
Star Trek’s Kate Mulgrew - Galway International Arts Festival: Would you like to join Kate Mulgrew for a virtual Happy Hour every Thursday? Full details on Kate's Twitter account here. Last year Kate joined GIAF for a “First Thought Talk” - watch here.
COMEDY ARTS FUN:
“You’re doing great!” -- Tom Papa
I’ve been listening to Tom Papa’s podcast, “Come to Papa” every week and it has become a habit. Guaranteed to cheer you up! Come to Papa podcast.
Papa has also created a charming online world of bread-making. Go here for some of his culinary action: Get Baked with Tom Papa
BIG LAUGHS/TEARS STREAMING ARTS FUN:
If you need a laugh head directly to Oh, Hello! The P'Cast
“She was the People’s Princess and they were two men who hung out at Duane Reade. But now worlds have collided. From the stars of “Oh Hello, on Broadway” and the videotaped version of “Oh, Hello on Broadway” comes a podcast on the life and death of Princess Diana. It's also a podcast on the life and loves of George St. Geegland (Oh, Hello on Broadway, TED Talk Submission) and Charmed I’m Sure Gil Faizon (Oh, Hello on Broadway, Nestle commercial web-only, can do French accent).”
GET LOST & GET CRAFTY ARTS FUN: From Austin Kleon: Make a Zine from a Single Sheet of Paper
