White House Poetry Revival Wed 3rd June 2009
Celebrating over 300 weeks of continuous readings.
White House Poetry Revival
Wed 3rd June 2009 9.00pm
This weeks guest poet is Tim Daly.
A callow wild-eyed youth of 60 summers, Tim Daly lives on a forty-odd acre West Cork headland purchased with Songwriting income he neglected to spend on cocaine. He has worked for luminaries as diverse as Hugh Masekela, Henry Mancini, Feargal Sharkey & Dave Stewart, and was the lyrical consultant on Pink Floyd’s “Momentary Lapse” album, which consisted mostly of six months of bullying Dave Gilmour into remembering he was a genius. Tim believes the notion that minds create ideas is exactly 180% from the truth. His hobbies are listed in Who’s Who as ‘indoor hang-gliding and competitive sex.’ He only discovered the joys of writing fiction around three years ago and is currently working on his first major storyline – a Kafkaesque quantum comedy called “Vince Charming.” He has been reading his poetry for fun and profit since being discovered by the late great Adrian Mitchell in the late 60’s and is a strong advocate of the idea that treasures lie buried deepest within the ordinary language of extraordinary people.
