I appreciate the raw emotion and realness of what this guy wrote and read. He starts at age 21 and counts down.


On Saturday, I got this email that made me very happy:

Dear Danesh

Thank you for entering your play for consideration to Short+Sweet Singapore 2010. We have now finished assessing the scripts that were submitted for our festival.

We are pleased to let you know that your play The Last Birthday Party has been included in the shortlisted plays.

These shortlisted plays have been sent to our Top40 directors.  They are currently in the process of reading through all the scripts and then selecting their preferred plays.  This process should take around a week. Short+Sweet will then make the final allocation of plays to the directors.

We are aiming to have the season finalised by the end of May. We will be in touch with you again later this month, to let you know if your play has been selected by one of the directors for this year’s Short+Sweet Singapore festival.

Kind regards
Nicole Stinton
Festival Director

I was most pleased to receive it because last year, when I took part with another submission, I did not get past the first round. If I get through the final round, my short play will be produced! I’m so excited and really pray that I will be selected.

Will keep you guys posted. You can read more about Short and Sweet, here.

Hey, I admit, I may be getting old but this is a really sweet and simple animation. It was like a breath of fresh air in the midst of violent, dark and surreally sinister animations.

It was like “wow”, that’s it? Hmmmm… how sweet. You mean people do this nowadays?

My kudos to Hyun-min Lee

Tonight I hosted a fight


It was a vicious fight

Funny thing is

I knew who the winner was going to be

But the winner didn’t win tonight

But the winner will win

I host these fights often

I know the winner has won

But the loser wins instead

Even so, day after day

I will host these bouts

Until the day

The winner wins

And when the winner wins

It’ll be forever

It hasn’t happened yet

In the bouts I host

But it will

It has

It will

The winner will win

And I’ll be His groupie
