White Wine in the Sun
As in previous years, all November, December and January profits from the sale of Tim’s sentimental Christmas song, White Wine in the Sun, will go to The National Autistic Society (NAS) which provides support, information and services for people with autism and their families and campaigns for “a better world for people with autism”.
There’s the 2009 solo version and the one recorded in 2012, with strings, french horn and more.
Here are just some of the places you can download the 2012 single internationally: iTunes , Amazon (UK), Amazon (US) and 7digital.
If you have it already perhaps you’d like to gift it along with the socks, jocks or chocs…
Storm the Illustrated Book which sprang from Tim’s sublime critical thinking beat-poem, is now available online and in all good bookshops!
With a foreword from Neil Gaiman, a detailed introduction by Tim and amazing new artwork from animator and illustrator DC Turner (with producer Tracy King), the book expresses Tim’s satirical lyrical trickery beautifully.
For a peek inside at some of the stunning artwork and for a list of various online retailers for both the paperback and the eBook, take a look at the Storm – The Illustrated Book Page.
“You’d imagine that any attempt to gild Tim’s lily would end in disaster, but Storm succeeds on every level. An absolute treat”
– Rufus Hound
“I have lived Storm, repeatedly. Minchin is a god among dorks.”
– Ben Goldacre
“Tim Minchin is a prophet and a poet, and Storm is his masterpiece: a passionate love letter to reason that is as hilarious as it is profound, as savage as it is touching. Flawlessly written and divinely illustrated, this is a truly unique and special book. And if you happen to be a friend of mine, you should put it down right now, because this is what I’m buying you for Christmas.”
– Jane Goldman
It’s time for more Tim on your telly, Australians!
Tomorrow, Thursday 16th October 2014, Tim will be seated behind the desk on The Project on Channel Ten!
The show airs at 6:30pm, and he’ll be joining hosts and regular panellists Carrie Bickmore, Pete Helliar, Josh Zepps and Mia Freedman, along with their other special guest, Kevin McCloud from Grand Designs, to dissect and give their unique take on the day’s news.
If, for some reason you’re busy and haven’t dropped all your plans to watch Tim on TV, the show will be available afterwards on The Project’s website.
Tim also appeared on Channel Nine’s Today, yesterday, to talk about Matilda The Musical and you can catch up with that interview here.
Australians, it’s time to get excited!
Back in February we told you that Matilda was heading to Sydney and finally, after months of waiting, you’ll be able to grab yourself some tickets to see this ridiculously brilliant, multi-award-winning musical with your own eyes!
Performances at the Sydney Lyric Theatre start on the 28th July 2015 and you’ll be able to buy tickets from 9am tomorrow morning (15th October 2014) at Ticketmaster.
Tim said: “I am incredibly excited that Matilda is opening in Sydney. Ten years ago this month, I was writing songs for the 2004 Christmas show at the Old Fitz in Woolloomooloo. The first time I straightened my hair and put on thick eye make-up was downstairs at the Seymour Centre. I even wrote songs for the musical that opened the Joan Sutherland centre in Penrith, (the opening song of which I extensively stole from when I wrote the opening number for Matilda).
Last year I fulfilled a dream of acting in a Stoppard at the Sydney Theatre Company. Long before anyone took much notice of my silly tunes, Sydney offered me some of the most edifying and hilarious experiences of my career. The thought that in less than a year, the Lyric’s curtain will be opening on our darling Matilda feels just perfect.”
And if all that wasn’t enough to whip you into a fevered frenzy, here’s a trailer for the production!
