Advent Calendar Day 17

And behind the door is... a Time Machine.  Or rather the script for my stage adaptation of the book.  Available now!

I staged this adaptation at the beginning of the year, so this script version is horribly delayed. 

Anyway, Merry Christmas - the world will end in approximately three and a half billion years and all human life will evolve into blobs before inevitable extinction.

Huzzah!

Advent Calendar Day 16

It's so close to Christmas that creating stuff like this is almost completely pointless - which makes it feel all the more important.
To celebrate the fact that I haven't released a new episode today - here's a whole selection of things in the Attack of the Christmas Squirrels gift shop.  It's HERE!

And here are a few of the actually rather fun bits and bobs available. Very little time to order anything before Christmas though. Sorry.

Advent Calendar Day 10


Where does the time go?
Day 10 of the Advent Calendar and there's a new gift shop open. Heaven save us. Yes, it's the collection no one has asked for - it's the Undead Bard collection, based on the ticket unselling artwork that put off audience members in their dozens.
Do you want a mug with my mug on it?  No?  Well, here it is.
Guaranteed that the eyes will follow you around the room and invade your dreams.
Four hideous designs, just waiting to curdle your milk.
Find all four mug designs HERE!

Why? 
Why is this happening? 
No one knows, least of all me.

Advent Calendar Day 9

You open the door and it's a Christmas episode of The Other Day!
Christmas of DOOM
Enjoy.



And here's a round up of the Advent Calendar so far...

Day 1 was the official opening of The Museum of Tat virtual gift shop.
HORRID MUGS?  We've got three designs! (Well, two really - a general mug design, and there are specific left and right handed versions of the second.)
NEVER WANTED A MUSEUM OF TAT DUVET COVER?  We've got your nightmares sorted!
WANT TO SMOTHER SOMEONE IN TAT? We've got a pillow for that!
I'm not joking - this pointless tat is now available online NOW!

Day 2 was a new episode of The Other Day - Phone of Sacrifice, recorded live before a mute studio audience. LISTEN HERE!

Day 3 was a repeat of an old fake Christmas appeal - but I did do a new graphic for it. (My computer was dying, be glad I did something you ungrateful bastards. P.S. I love you all.) LISTEN HERE!


Days 5 to 8 were the first four episodes of
Attack of the Christmas Squirrels!
The story of what happens when one man's hatred of early Christmas advertising meets his secret squirrel training project.
All episodes have been released on my patron page - but because it is Christmas you'll be able to listen without pledging anything.  Though while you're there...

Advent Calendar Day 4

Hello!

Today's door on the Advent Calendar is another very urgent and important Christmas Appeal.

Can you help poor Simon with a disease that is ruining lives this Christmas season? 

Of course you can't, he is doomed.

Merry Christmas!

Advent Calendar Day 3

And inside today's door is...

A very important Christmas appeal.

Okay, I'll be honest with you - this isn't new.
I'm having computer problems and I've pre-scheduled this post to go out if I don't get my machine back from the shop before I finish the better thing for today. So, if you're reading this, sorry for the repeat - though I did do a new graphic for the front. So, it's not all old.  (NB: A new urgent Christmas Appeal will go out tomorrow!)

Merry Christmas!

Advent Calendar Day 2

And inside today's Advent calendar door is...
New audio from The Other Day!  Huzzah.  

Merry Christmas!

This was originally recorded in March as part of the now 'missing' episode of Live from the Get In!  It's primarily missing because the first forty-five minutes were a bit pants - though I have plans to re-edit it into something interesting one day.  This bit was quite good, but by then the audience had lost the will to laugh/live, so you can't really hear them.

Advent Calendar Day 1

Merry Christmas and welcome to my daily Advent calendar.
Don't say I never give you anything.
There's going to be a new(ish) thing available everyday till Christmas.

Today it's TAT!

On the First Day of Christmas my true love gave to me - a whole heap of shitty things from The Museum of Tat virtual gift shop.

HORRID MUGS?
We've got three designs! (Well, two really - a general mug design, and there are specific left and right handed versions of the second.)

NEVER WANTED A MUSEUM OF TAT DUVET COVER?
We've got your nightmares sorted!

WANT TO SMOTHER SOMEONE IN TAT?
We've got a pillow for that!

I'm not joking - this pointless tat is now available online NOW!

Merry Christmas from the Museum of Tat.

Live Streaming Again

I've been playing around with the possibilities of live streaming over the years - live in studio, with audience, using different platforms.  I'm desperately waiting for facebook live audio to kick in so I can start there - I've been playing with the live video and it's just a sod with my bandwidth.
For the moment I'm going back to live streaming with ustream - there are adverts, but life's a bitch sometimes.  I'm also going to use it to drive my new storytelling.
Instead of doing new work for my patrons on Wednesday, streaming it Saturday and then releasing it again properly to the world on the following Tuesday, I'm going to use the Saturday live streams to try out works in progress.  They'll be full and proper things, just I might want to change it after the live stream and I'll be actively looking for thoughts and comments from the audience.  You.
Then I'll start work on turning that live stream into something for normal podcast release.  It's a process.
So, this week, Saturday at 1pm I'll be streaming the long promised bit of storytelling The U.N. Special Representative.
You can catch the live stream here, this Saturday at 1pm (BST) and there'll be something streamed every Saturday at the same time, unless advertised otherwise.  I will also start scheduling what will be performed prior to each show.
You're probably going to hear versions of other promised shows on the live stream first. We shall see, I may even do some live streamed drama.

My work couldn't happen without the support of my patrons - if you think you could contribute to the work I create, go to www.patreon.com/robertcrighton and see if you can help - there are bonuses and you can get to listen to my new work before anyone else.
Also, as there's a lot being planned at the moment, if you want to keep up to speed, why not join my mailing list.  I know, so last century.
