Fob Bible Release Party Recap

Thanks to those of you who stopped by the party. To those of you who didn't make it, you can still relive the fun here. The highlights of the party were live readings of a few excerpts from the Fob Bible, which I'll happily repost for you here.

FoxyJ reading "Capitulation: Forbidden Squirming" by A. Arwen Taylor:



Me reading an excerpt from "The Changing of the God" by B.G. Christensen:



Eric reading "Them Bones Them Bones Gonna -- Walk Around (a bar song)" by Theric Jepson:



Lady Steed reading "Philistina" by Danny Nelson:



Me reading "Wings" by Sarah E. Jenkins (sorry, Sarah, I'm not a great poetry reader):



And finally, Eric reading the illustration captions as if they all go together in a long, nonsensical story:



Now that we've whetted your appetite, buy the book!

Wow! I'm sold! What a humdinger of a glorious piece of art this Fob Bible thing looks to be. Neato! I'm in! Is it okay if I buy extra copies for all my loved ones?

Mr. Fob said...

Yes, but order quickly before supplies run out! Don't make the same mistake you did when choosing a username and wait too long.

Mr Jepson and yourself have to be some of the most humourous guys I have never met.
I particularly love Dem Bones.

Mr. Fob said...

Thanks, John! Dem Bones is my favorite of these performances too. It's a good piece on paper, but Eric makes it particularly fun live.

I am so sorry I missed the party. I think my brain cells are leaking out my breast milk. I can't remember a thing since I had the baby. Looks like a great party, hope you all had a fun time.

Mr. Fob said...

At least that way your baby is getting smarter!

I've often worried that I had made a mistake including "Them Bones" but, I must say, reading it aloud for an audience helped put those concerns to rest.

Mr. Fob said...

I can't say I ever worried about it being a mistake, but I can say that I like it even more after the reading. Really, how do you beat a psychic reading of the Bible?

You have a really nice speaking voice. I didn't listen to more than 30 seconds of any of these. I hate hearing things read aloud. Guess I'll have to get my hands on a copy one of these days (when I have a job and disposable income and...I think I might never see this thing).

Mr. Fob said...

Thanks, Rebecca. I think you'd enjoy a good deal of the book, so start saving your pennies!

Mr. Fob said...

(Not that I can think of any parts that you wouldn't enjoy, but, you know, it's an anthology written by eight different authors so I don't want to promise that every single piece will fit the particular tastes of every single reader. But it's all stuff that I like, so why wouldn't you?)
