Chris Walter article in the Georgia Straight, plus New Creation, Rich Hope

Chris Walter reads at the Cobalt, by Femke van Delft

Hm! This week's Georgia Straight is just chock-full o' content by me: an article on Chris Walter plus a Music Note on the New Creation (which details the surprising results of the auction that I let people know about here. I personally crapped out of bidding for that album around the $300 mark, by the way). Right now, tho', I want to read what Sir Adrian Mack has to say about Bruce Springsteen...
Speakin' of whom: fans of Mack or of country music are further advised that there's a Two-Step Thursdays at the Railway coming up on the 26th, with Rich Hope and his Blue Rich Rangers (w/Mack on drums); nevermind the badass bar-band blues boogie of the Evil Doers, this is the project o' Rich's (IMHO, o' course) that gets at the meat, the bleedin' heart and soul of things - the heartbreak and alcohol and struggles with love and life: if it ain't therapeutic, then you ain't been around long enough to need it.

I liked yer Straight piece esp. you asking about writing also being addicting.

Thanks!

Based on his answer, I'd say *I* actually have a bigger "problem" with the addictive qualities of writing than Chris Walter does - I binge for a week or a month or so, do a ton of articles, starting one as soon as the last is over, and eventually exhaust myself... whereupon I crash into despondency for a few months while I gather the stamina to get back on the horse (so to speak). It sounds like Chris paces himself quite well - and it seems to obviously be working for him, given his amazing productivity...
