i saw coupland last september for "Hey Nostrodamous" in Calgary (canada) he's well worth listening too

althou as one of my favorite authors i may be a little bit biased

intriguing tape. I'd love to trade for a copy as i am essentially a Coupland obsessive...Postcard from the Bahamas is amazing, and with pleasing synchronicity i bought tickets for the September 10th today...

I have no idea what is going on here. I'm totally intrigued.

Gobi - The tape is made up of recorded prose from the Douglas Coupland novel, 'Microserfs'. Didn't entirely work in my opinion!

James - What day are you going to see September 10th?, there are only 3 dates as I understand. 'The Other Place' Theatre is impossible to find, I drove to Stratford with my girlfriend and we're not sure we found it or not.(!)
I really like the Lionsgate bridge part. His affection for the bridge is charming and touching. I have what I think of as a similar kind of feeling towards some power stations near my house. Postcards is wonderful too, of living your life in one day. His stuff makes me feel so sad yet fulfilled at the same time. His voice is great too. *gush gush..* It's low and lax whereas I thought it would be sort of high and loud. Anyhow, I'm a Coupland nut. Unhealthily so.

i don't know what i'd trade, but i am so interested in hearing this.
