Mauled by lions, engaged to the Bee Gees and other stories from last night’s TSTL

This was our second time at The Forge in Camden Town, which is certainly good for being able to see and hear OK. After volunteering in a retirement home, Matt Sherman decided that he really ought to get to know his own grandmother, which led to his reuniting her with her long-lost brother via the miracle of something called Google, Jim Thornton told an astonishing story about his mother going into hospital when he was 17 which we won’t spoil for you here in case you bump into him and Mari Wilson talked about her pre-teen crush on Barry Gibb and sang “The First of May”, which is on her new album “Cover Stories”. Naomi Alderman got the second half under way with the story of the night that she thought her rejection of her Orthodox Jewish upbringing had triggered a supernatural response and cameraman Peter Henderson talked about getting his hand chewed off by a lioness. Kerry Shale was MC as usual.

In other TSTL-related events playwright and comedian A.L. Kennedy is talking tonight at Large Glass in Caledonian Road in the latest in a series of events celebrating postcards. Tickets are £10 which includes a glass of wine. Details here. And there’s another reading of Kerry’s play The Prince Of West End Lane at the Jewish Museum on May 24th. Tickets here.

    I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing problems with your
    website. It appears like some of the text within your posts are running
    off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to
    them as well? This might be a issue with my web browser because
    I’ve had this happen previously. Cheers

  4. For example, most lending organizations fix their lending criteria on the basis of certain factors such
    as the ability of the borrowers to repay loan and so on. Commercial hard money loans Texas are non conventional and will
    rarely be offered by a deposit organization or by
    a commercial bank. ) It depends on the property type you are purchasing,
    for example, a distressed marina will require good credit, cross-collateralization and cash reserves.

    According to Credit Loan, to qualify for premium financing
    and a low-interest rate, your score needs to be at least 720′and the higher, the better.

    The hardest thing that I had to overcome when graduating to the commercial arena was
    putting the distressed mindset behind me.
