Off to run my usual holiday workshop over the next couple of days. Despite the early times I have to get up at (earlier, because tomorrow morning has Germany playing Spain) and despite the awful morning traffic I have to drive through, I quite enjoying running this workshop. It's good fun, and more often than not, the students all dig the fiction that they are exposed too. There really is nothing like watching a classroom full of kids dig William Burroughs' Nova Express and Antony Burgess' A Clockwork Orange.
Of course, it would be cool if I could working Cookin' with Coolio, if only so I could play his one hit wonder song from Dangerous Minds, and we could hassle the hair he has in that film clip.
How it is that I don't win awards for teaching, I'll never know.
