Martin on Saturday, 31 December 2011

Hello! I heard in one of your shows you mentioned your child being from an orphanage in Moldova! Me and 7 more youths from Sweden was in Moldova about a month ago, helping children in orphanages! We were in Chisinau and Ivancea, visiting the orphanages of "C.R.A.C". From which village/city did you adopt? Was it one of the CRACs orphanages? Please answer to me on my e-mail, this is really important to me and my friends. Love your works, Martin

alba on Saturday, 31 December 2011

I've just discovered your work and I love it......................when a gig in Barcelona???

catlee98 on Saturday, 31 December 2011

Heritage Orchestra..........an absolute applause to you both! Dark side....jeeasussss.....what a fantastic powerful piece! Some of my mates dont 'get' you.......i keep telling them YOU ARE A GENUINE EXCELLENT MUSICIAN!!...and you cant beat that. Happy 2012!!

Simon Perry on Friday, 30 December 2011

Tim I have been appreciating your work for a few years now. Just been to see Matilda and have to confess that it is amazing. The whole production puts all other shows into the shade. The music was both funny and touching. Please please write another musical its the breath of fresh air needed to cut through all of the karaoke set to a story (we will rock you etc.) which seems to get knocked out these days. Simon PS White wine in the sun is one of the best songs around more like that please.

Amanda on Friday, 30 December 2011

I watched 'Not Perfect' on youtube yesterday and the comments were all things like "this is how I feel all the time Tim fucking Minchin get out of my head," &c. &c. and you should just know that the ability to make somebody laugh (my reaction to 'love isn't all wine and roses, sometimes it's handcuffs and cheese' was truly embarrassing) and just as quickly get all misty and girly and sentimental and teary-eyed (I mean, I didn't cry at 'Not Perfect,' ahem, excuse me) is rare. thank you, sir. xoxo (p.s., come to Canada! <3)

Glenn Guildea on Thursday, 29 December 2011

I truly think your work is the art of a genius, simply word play from you can split my sides with laughter, or place me in a confused state. Ive recently bought your latest DVD and CD, both amazing might I add. I shall look forward to hearing more of your work. P.S Your hair intrigues me =^.^=

joan on Thursday, 29 December 2011

I love your work! keep on building a happier world, best wishes!

ITV Mole... shhhhh on Thursday, 29 December 2011

Hi Tim, first off... massive fan. Second off... I work for a well known british broadcaster, see if you can guess which ^ and i am extremely disappointed in our management pulling your hilariously silly and obvious inoffensive 'Christmas' song from the Jonathan Ross show recently. I viewed it (and i work in the rights and legal dept!) and didn't see a problem but then again i didn't see why you had to pull the N word from 'If you really love me' as you had made your stance on racism clear in the previous line!!! Freaking Political correctness gone mad. Anyway, in full support i have posted on our work forums a link to your site with the request that as many of my colleagues as possible view the song and be as outraged as me that you were cut from channel that needs all the comedy it can get. Also, cause i'm a cheeky bastard, could you get one of your roadies/groupies/staff/slaves etc to e-mail me a copy of the video?? I only ask as legally i can't download it thanks to yet more work related politcal correctness! Ohh 5 minutes the forum post has been up and BAM... first reply: "I totally agree with you . Poor Tim Minchin. We can't be seen to be edgy or cause the slightest offence, got to be ultra conservative with a small 'c'. Rubbish state of affairs. ...." All the best for 2012, hope Sarah and the kids are doing great.

Jade T-R on Thursday, 29 December 2011

I love "You Grew On Me", I just thought I'd say. As the rest of your songs, it's rather funny, but it's also beautifully written. I must say, it's a lovely song, my favourite; it describes love perfectly. Also, White Wine In The Sun" is also rather touching. I do really enjoy the humor of your music, but honestly, you're a beautiful singer and pianist. Keep it coming, man. ...and thank you for the wonderful music (:

Solomon on Wednesday, 28 December 2011

Wow! ur stuff amazes me! just wanted 2 wish u and the 'web fairies' a happy christmas and well done for doing so well!!!

shannon on Wednesday, 28 December 2011

oh my god you fucking amaze me. i love your humor and wit about everything. wish you would come to the U.S and make us the ass end of an awesome joke. can not wait to see you here. btw, im a huge fan in a small body. i crowd surf easily..just...fyi

Dan on Wednesday, 28 December 2011

Tim, why is your stuff not available in Canada?? Have been trying legally to get it here in Canada but have been failing miserably! Apparently iTunes world does not include Canada. We're all in this common wealth together!! Help!! Happy Christmas

emma on Monday, 26 December 2011

Tim the fucking legend Minchin! i would just like to say that i fucking love you! again incase you didnt get that I fucking love you! Got your latest DVD for Christmas! love it! especially the song Prejudice and The Fence - which by the way is my ringtone! are you ever coming to Northern Ireland to do a gig? if so please let me know - I WOULD LOVE TO GO! funds are pretty poor so I couldnt afford to go to England but if you came here I would sell my body to get money for tickets errrr just kidding but I would def sell an organ or too! please please come here! xx keep up the amazing and hilarious work you genius!

Debbie Francis on Monday, 26 December 2011

Happy Christmas to you Mr Minchin! this time last year I was still buzzing from seeing you at Nottingham Arena, I thought it was a brilliant show, you made me laugh and cry in equal measures, don't ever stop doing what you do, it is so important, especially at the moment, with this government....... A positive that came out of the idiotic ( and scary) decision to omit you from the Jonathan Ross show is that you got good publicity? More people need to hear your work. I had been telling my mum for a long time how brilliant you were , to no avail ,and then came along Lullaby, which makes me shudder it so close to the bone, my mum loves it! she relates, that is what it is all about isn't it? and.., I know somebody who worked in an orchestra with you that said , not only are you brilliant but a really nice guy, I guessed that already but was good to have it confirmed! Enough of the Boxing Day blethering! Thank you for all you do xx

Maggie Mcalinden on Monday, 26 December 2011

Hi Tim, Just wanted to say that Jesus loves you and approves of your song. Jesus H Christ

Tony Walker on Monday, 26 December 2011

just watched the ross video and thought it is excellent. i'm a recent convert to you and your brand of humour and style. i first watched you on the last night of the proms which i enjoyed very much. the next time i saw you was on stage at the manchester apollo with brian cox, a great show for the freethinker i thought. needless to say i am now a big fan of yours but i promise not to stalk you :) keep it up Tim, we need to keep up the fight against the dark forces of organised religion.

David T on Monday, 26 December 2011

Dear Mr. Minchin I can't begin to express just how grateful I am to you for the music that has not only made me smile, laugh and cheer but emotionally torn me to pieces, crying shamelessly at something I can only describe as love in the form of sound. My life, like so many others has had its share of trouble and woe. I lost my father a couple of years back and witnessed for the first time the true feeling of loss, and the desperation for love and need. In times of sorrow or sadness I turn to the piano and take comfort in the unique sensation of the 'outer-body' experience where for short moments I feel as if I am the instrument and my feelings are expressed in a way where words would normally fail. Your music has not only given me comfort but inspired me to be more than I can be. To be greater than I ever allowed myself. Because when you play and I listen, it drowns out the sorrow and stress. And the greater I become, the harder I play, the further from reality I travel... the more at peace I am. I learnt the true beauty and power of music from you and for that alone I am eternally grateful. Thank you Tim. x

Humberto Mohr on Monday, 26 December 2011

I could spend a lot of words trying to express the feelings that flourishes in my mind when I listen to your songs.... The best I can do is to Thank You. Thanks A LOT for your art dude! You made the expirience of being alive even more amazing! Many thanks from Brazil!

nic walmsley on Monday, 26 December 2011

love your work, just found you, was watching abc one night and your sydney oprah house show was on. hilarious and so to the point all at once. i was blown away by your 'white wine in the sun' song. very emotional and so very true for a lot of us aussies. where ever we all are in the world we still call australia home and family is what its all about. thanks for giving us a true aussie xmas song. oh and can u put on another show in brisbane? i did ask on fb if you could drive to where i live, in st george, southwest qld, i fucking hate driving that moonie hwy and its something that u as an aussie should experience. lol. anyhoo, luv ur guts, going to have some rum in the sun, mum is drinking the white wine. :) nicola

lonomoholo on Sunday, 25 December 2011

Hello Mr. Minchin...may I address you as Tim? I just started delving into your material and am enjoying it immensely. Do you have any plans for a Canadian tour. I know we're a long way away, and it is pretty cold right about now, but if you time it right, say in the summer, you would enjoy lovely weather and no need for a jumper. In any case, Canadians are generally a nice people, plus are less likely than Americans to be dogmatic Bible-thumping dicks. Okay then. Hope you have a Merry Mythmas

Ole-Martin Hagen on Sunday, 25 December 2011

Would be awesome if you took the time to tour in Norway. Perhaps you'd swip by Trondheim?

snooch on Sunday, 25 December 2011

Tim, I just watched your Woody Allen song pulled from the Jonathon Ross show. Pretty tame really, and quite disappointing it was pulled. I couldn't help but notice though, that Tom Cruise was the "lead" guest on the show, for want of a better word. Very curious. And good for you for your description of him as "nice and quite laid back". An interesting description, and not one I could possibly question. But from where I sit, he's just....well, I won't go there. Because it's Christmas after all. But I couldn't help but wonder to myself, here a rather innocent song that may poke a little fun at Christianity is pulled while a man whose spiritual beliefs are dangerous, at the very least, and completely insane and just.....ughhh...at the most, is allowed to appear unquestioned and unchallenged. It's just sad, but not surprising. And as a journalist I couldn't help but notice the "tone" the British press took with their stories about the song being pulled. Once again, it's sad, but not surprising. Journalism has just become so lazy and one-dimensional these days. It's all about the amount of comments they can get at the end of their stories. And they succeeded in gaining the same drones saying the same things....you know, like how Christianity is an easy target and how you'd never have a go at Islam. Sigh.. Can't wait to see you live in Adelaide in Feb v the Aus Symph Orchestra. Merry Christmas, hope there's plenty of white wine and all for you and the fam;)

Bobby on Sunday, 25 December 2011

Tim- I discovered your work today for the first time, clicking on a Google link. Life isn't happy these days. But I wanted to thank you. Not so much for any one thing you've done but for the sheer pleasure of watching a man being true to himself through his art. White Wine in the Sun is a wonderful gift. Merry Christmas

Janine on Sunday, 25 December 2011

Inane, probably, but I'm saying it ANYWAY; Christmas day was perfected by the 5th viewing of your Sydney Symphony show... Sentimental, yes, incredibly entertaining, yes. Made me cry at the end, yes. And considering that my grown-up children have just commandeered the remotes and are threatening me with the calibre of "Fright Night' (THEY are NOT sentimental about Christmas night...) it is fair to say THANK-YOU, and can't wait to see you live some day soon. Cheers. White wine (was had) in the sun (today)

Michelle- IoM on Sunday, 25 December 2011

Got your DVD for Christmas- unbelievably joyous now. Off to go drink wine and be festive. Happy JesusBirthday-but-with-a-lot-of-pagan-traditions too Christmas. x

BZ Smith--Sonora, CA on Sunday, 25 December 2011

"White Wine in the Sun" sums up my only Christmas this year. Missing my daughter & grands who are 3,000 miles away. Once again, you nail it. Merçi bien et joyeux Noël.

your fan, Teresa on Saturday, 24 December 2011

Tim, you make me smile, a lot! Thanks for sharing your grins and your honesty and your music. If you ever come back to St. Louis, Missouri, USA, I'll be seeing you there and I'm making all my friends come, too! I just posted White Wine in the Sun on my Facebook page for christmas and told everyone to check you out. Cheers!

FeeL Buarque on Saturday, 24 December 2011

Tim, You have a quite bit of fans - some posting linkts to your youtube material - here in Brazil! Although most of the brazilian people dont speak english - I´d luv to see you here someday!

Adam on Saturday, 24 December 2011

Hi Tim, First of all Merry Christmas! My friends and I love your songs and I've been having trouble finding some of your songs for download (legally, I mean) I can't find 3 Minute Song, Teenage Years or Rock and Roll Nerd (ok that last one but only as a ringtone). Would you be able to point me somewhere where I can buy them? Cheers, Adam

Portia on Saturday, 24 December 2011

Happy Christmas Mr Minchin - Here's to hoping you and your family enjoy your white wine x

Isa on Saturday, 24 December 2011

Dear Tim, I live a terrible life trying to cope because of years of abuse by both the Jewish and Christian religions. The more these religions are outed for what they really are, the better the world will be. I really admire you, Tim. I wish I had an outlet for all my grief and pain. The Australian Government espouse to protect women and children, but instead they sanction all the abuse. I wish I had somebody like yourself to turn to, to help get my story out in the open. There is something really wrong going on, that women and children are treated like this along religions. Isa

Alanna on Friday, 23 December 2011

Hey Tim, I think you are absolutely amazing, I love your outlook on the world my Mother describes it as 'cynical yet optimistic'. A couple of my friends and I walk around school singing your songs, much to the dismay of our teachers, they seem to get especially cross when we sing the pope song but we have no idea why ;) I can't wait to see you in Sydney next year so I can hear some more of your delectable, disrespectful, glorious songs. Merry Christmas.

Julia on Friday, 23 December 2011

If I apologize for for my countrymates, will you come to the U.S. more often? They will not stop collecting guns, shooting each other with them, believing that evolution is a passing fad, eating mass quantities of partially hydrogenated corn oil and/or high-fructose corn syrup, shopping at Wal-mart, or making contemporary country music albums or terrible cars. I am sorry. But I hope the gesture counts for something. And we do have a few nice things! Like jazz. And the Grand Canyon.

Mandi on Friday, 23 December 2011

I just wanted you to know that I've had "Woody Allen Jesus" stuck in my head ALL DAY LONG. :)

Kim & Alex on Friday, 23 December 2011

Tim, come back to San Francisco. We LOVE you!!!!!!

Jennifer G. on Friday, 23 December 2011

I saw you perform in Atlanta over the summer. Been hooked ever since. Thanks for brightening the world with your wit! Come back to America soon. :)

Dr James Ellingford on Friday, 23 December 2011

Thank god for you. I am a retired corporate exec (46yrs) and the absolute crap that is being dished up in this world deserves to be pulled back into line, which is what you do. Thank you Tim, I have only recently discovered you and cant get enough. Truly brilliant.. Hey, you should do a song about why execs are paid so much and shareholders aren't... can provide lots of info for you to whittle into no doubt another TM masterpiece. Thank you for delivering to a world indeed content that is very very clever

Simon on Friday, 23 December 2011

No Canberra dates on your upcoming Aus tour :-(

Maggie on Friday, 23 December 2011

I absolutely love your sense of humor. Whenever I'm having a bad day, I head to your YouTube channel. It's like a giant fuck you to the rest of society. Keep on keeping on. With much love from your biggest fan in Seattle.

cunnylinguy on Friday, 23 December 2011

happy birthday for sunday! woody Allan zombie vampire SPIDERMAN btw komodo YOU! jesus wishing you and your and yours all the best from me. and mine i love your talents your perseption of your obsevations this site and cheese! Mmmm cheese. a pitifully illiterate lifelong fan yours you fucking rock! and you know it

Joe Azzaro on Friday, 23 December 2011

Tim, Have recently caught up with a few people from the BLUE DUCK days. Lee Hulton, Gemma Bailey, Belinda Newick, Christian Gardner, KB, for example. I have a beaut photo of the crew on the balcony. I think it was a Christmas party that you may like. Let me know how to send it to you Thanks for the fun and laughs. Joe Azzaro (the old dude) if you recall.

Nina on Friday, 23 December 2011

Same fan that posted about the Crisis gig (thanks for putting WoodyAllenJesus on youtube, I've been playing it on repeat :D) I came back from Matilda earlier tonight and I thought it was AMAZING! Great work! Whole family loved it! The music was absolutely amazing, so much so that I downloaded the soundtrack from iTunes as soon as I got home. Merry Christmas and have a lovely time in Australia with your family, drinking White Wine in the Sun :D Much love from your London fans!

Derek Gibbin on Friday, 23 December 2011

Just been sent your "Woody Allen Jesus" video link, gotta say (coming from someone who sends Jehovah's Witnesses away from the door with "homework") I found it entertaining and not at all offensive. From a professional standpoint, if I were a station controller (or as I am, Entertainments Events Manager), I always like to "Vet" material to a sensible extent, to to pull that material from a show is pushing the metaphorical boat somewhat. I would certainly not have any hesitations in booking you up as a headline act at one of our "Big Gig" annual charity events. Keep up the good work. Have a very Merry Christmas, and a successful and happy 2012

Maz Vincent on Thursday, 22 December 2011

How about having an Islam song to balance the Christian one?

Anna on Thursday, 22 December 2011

Tim, I have been kind of "depressed" for a while. I haven't laughed like this for atleast in half a year. You are so talented and witty, and I actually agree with you on everything, being a sceptic and an atheist myself. You are amazing :) (and you have nice teeth, just sayin')

lahlahboy on Thursday, 22 December 2011

I have just found your videos on you tube and they're fantastic. The best laugh I've had all week! Woody Allen Jesus brilliant!

Steve M. on Thursday, 22 December 2011

Tim, when are you coming to America to perform? We love you here! (Well, some of the more rational among us here love you.)

Lizzie Millne on Thursday, 22 December 2011

Did I say BBC ? Slip of the tongue !!!

Lizzie Millne on Thursday, 22 December 2011

Dear Mr M, Can't believe BBC treated one of the funniest and most clever of comedians in the way they did . Our loss. But keep the faith !!!!(if you catch my drift !)

Michelle- IoM on Thursday, 22 December 2011

It's outrageous that they cut you from tomorrow night's show. Well, no, perhaps not outrageous- more pathetic, really. Utterly pathetic. Couldn't find a single DVD of yours in HMV yesterday; asked the guy at the till, he told me they were sold out. Yeah, smart move ITV. Can't wait to come see you live again- saw you live for the first time three years ago today, bizarrely. And don't worry about ITV. They clearly have a little growing up to do yet. Michelle

EJ Nastos on Thursday, 22 December 2011

Hey Tim! I don't see an email list (might not be big in the UK or AUS-but is here) that fans can sign up for to receive notice about upcoming shows. Do you post on the blog and Twitter when a new show is booked? I would plan my vacation around your appearance here in the States. Thanks for the laughs and making us think!

Sally, 13 on Wednesday, 21 December 2011

I love you more than anything (god that was a crap cliche) seen matilda and went DRESSED AS YOU... only a slight obsession, the eyeliner didn't come off for days!

Nina on Wednesday, 21 December 2011

I'm a huge fan, and I just came back from the Crisis gig, to which I came with my Mum because you were playing, and we were so sad your set was so short! Loved the new song, thought it was hilarious. Good job staying focused during the fainting people, you handled it very well. Mum and I were right at the front, in the middle, so we had to pass them over our heads. The version of White Wine in the Sun with Dan Clews was very beautiful, I couldn't help but cry a little (I always do when I hear that song, but I'm not usually in public so I don't generally bother to internalise it). Brilliant job as always, very much looking forward to seeing Matilda on Thursday! Much love from all my family, they're fans of yours as well. PS Please go on tour again! I love everything about your work!

Simon on Tuesday, 20 December 2011

Even in catholic Poland you have a fan :-) With my son Kajetan I will come to London to see "Matilda". We are very happy owner of two tickets (19.01.2012). Your polish translator :-) Simon

15 year old kid on Tuesday, 20 December 2011

You have amazing wit and intelligence as is so obvious, and your skills at playing and composing appear far more accomplished than I can hope for in a long time, however I have just finished a 5th grade piano for leisure exam and started composing and can only come up with some four bar tunes that don't exactly fit together and I can't think of how to continue with them. Do you have any tips for composing? Otherwise, I have been inspired after watching your act just recently and hope to better myself. Please continue to demonstrate your skill wit and humour with routines tuned to perfection for a long time to come :)

Jessii on Monday, 19 December 2011

Love you so much Tim!! I also thought I'd tell you that you were fantastic on the Royal Variety performance! I also have a question: Do you ever do 'meet and greet' things?? I hope you have a lovely Xmas! :)

Chantelle on Monday, 19 December 2011

Come to Canada! You're brilliant and talented; thanks for the laughs and cries.

emma minchin on Sunday, 18 December 2011

i sat through one and a half hours of the royal variety just to hear your three minute song and then i turned it off straight after. little did i realise, i could have gone on youtube... still worth it! I LOVE YOU TIM!

Angela Siejka on Sunday, 18 December 2011

So excited...have just purchased tickets to your Adelaide show for John. ( A surprise). It was our daughters' idea....so we held our breath hoping all Australian concerts weren't sold out. He has been enthralled with your talent and wit and amazing piano skills for quite some time. Your lyrics have moved him to tears and laughter and contemplation. we will be travelling from Launceston, Tasmania. He has introduced many of us to Tim Minchin and your amazing songs. His favourite ( and ours now) is "Drinking white wine in the sun..". Cheers Tim!!!

Misty on Saturday, 17 December 2011

I have an amazing son named Tim. He is on the autism spectrum, and truly in love with "White Wine in the Sun". I play it to him to help him calm down after a meltdown. When I told him you were named Tim as well, he just grinned, and said "Tims likes playing pianos".

Amanda Mickelson on Saturday, 17 December 2011

Hello Tim and thankyou for making a difference! I missed out on tickets in Melbourne, SOLD OUT. Is there any chance of another show ??? Please oh please!

J Lennon on Saturday, 17 December 2011

Hi Tim, WHAT THE?? are you serious.........your cynicism and originality is almost as refreshing as when I was around!!!!! Live long and prosper my friend but stay forever original, so as not to become a parody yourself. Always change to stay original and you will never be "per se" ie get a hair cut and a real job...now there's a theme for a skit right there

Doc Ryan on Saturday, 17 December 2011

Just caught the last hour of Vs Sydney Symphony on ABC1 Darwin ...........Completely entertained .......fantastic performance .....fantastic production ...fantastic live show :whis: ......fantastic humour :tooth: ....fantastic lyrics ...fantastic insight on "life" 8-) ......just fanfarkingtastic :clap: . A pity that upcoming tour does not include Darwin :(

Anthony Launer on Saturday, 17 December 2011

just seen you on tv,, with the SSO , i thought you looked mental, until i heard you sing and entertain,, now i am hooked, you are a bloody Genius! i loved hearing your weird Lyrics , strange voice and wacky ways.... Now i am going to see what CD's i can buy on you.... Thanks for the laughs and the enjoyable listening, I SIMPLY LOVED IT

Noel H on Saturday, 17 December 2011

Just watched you on TV - "verses Sydney Symphony Orchestra"....... Mindblowingly Brilliant...... Fantastic..... What a performance....... Totally riveting..........

M on Saturday, 17 December 2011

We just had a rerun (17 dec 2011) of you on ABC Australia with wonderful Sydney Symphony (best tv channel n the world!!!!) I can watch you uninterrupted….pure joy and the best brain massage I have had in a very long time….thank the Buddha and God and Tim for Tim!!!!

Davo on Saturday, 17 December 2011

That only a ginger song based on the anagram of the N word and the context of how its used is amazing. Was it conceived just by chance ? I would love to know what event in time prompted Tim to think of that concept, apart from the obvious fact of his ginger hair. i.e. was it something that just came to mind or was it prompted by an event or observation etc... I thought it was an interesting, entertaining, thought provoking show, even if I did cringe a bit at times.

Samantha L. on Wednesday, 14 December 2011

I'd love to have your DVD for xmas, but it's only sold to UK and Australia :( sell them to us Americans, too! <3

GT on Wednesday, 14 December 2011

Thanks for the songs that get me through so many days. Singing "The Fence" in my head while in a meeting with idiots means I don't do something that might lose me my job! :) I just remember they love binary mode. Just wondering if you can make a NZ concert happen. The budget just won't stretch to Oz.... but there are lots of us here who are big fans

Liz on Tuesday, 13 December 2011

Hi Tim, was feeling a bit low until I read your 2007 Christmas blog and laughed aloud - you have put a smile on my face for the rest of the day. THANKS! I am also very grateful to you for pushing me out of my middle class complacency and turning me into a potential activist. Bring on the debate here in Australia about same sex marriage because I want to get out there and demonstrate totally in its favour! I just couldn't believe my eyes yesterday when I read that the sister of our former Prime Minister has left the Labour party because she claims same sex marriage goes against the commandments of MOSES (yes MOSES, for crying out loud!!!!) My husband just turned to me and said "Where's Tim Minchin when you need him!" Of course these religious claims are rubbish and of course human rights shouldn't be up for debate. But you, my dear man, are really the catalyst for making us see that and I am totally grateful for it. It isn't good enough for us just to shrug and say "Whatever....." and to go on with our little lives. We absolutely have to stand up for what is right. I am raving now - but stand up I will. You have made a difference! (BTW, good luck with everything and do have a wonderful Christmas with your family).

Paul S. on Monday, 12 December 2011

I just watched White Wine in the Sun last night with my wife, who was raised a Catholic. I hope that she will see the way I think about X-Mas just as your lyrics so eloquently expressed in your music. I would love to see you in concert here in Canada, and yes, there are some Atheists here in Toronto, Ontario. Please come soon, I'm sure you would be able to book Massey Hall no problem, not that I work there or anything... just thought I would encourage you to try 'cause I'm selfish. I will even like you on facebook to get you to come to TORONTO, ONTARIO CANADA. Hint hint... pretty please!

Dan on Monday, 12 December 2011

Tim - just wanted to say that White Wine in the Sun has become my favourite Christmas song. It totally sums up the way that I think about Xmas and your performance with a certain physicist at the Apollo last week was amazing. It was the first time I've heard it - to be honest, I'd only ever really seen you on the odd Buzzcocks or similar. I've now ordered your live DVD - great songs, great performer. Thanks (a new fan!)

Pat on Monday, 12 December 2011

Please, please, please Tim, confirm that you will be appearing in the Uncaged Monket show on 13th December. I booked thinking you were on the guest list and now find you might not be! I like Robin Ince and the others, but I like you better and probably would not have booked for that show without you being in it. A worried fan.

Chantal on Saturday, 10 December 2011

Dear Tim, There is an issue. It consists of the absence of any video what so ever of your song "Cont" being on the internet. I do remember seeing it once upon a time and believe me seeing you perform it makes it even better, if that is possible. Would love it if it was uploaded to your site or your youtube channel. Sincerely Me, A fellow ginger and big fan. :)

Honor MacDonald on Friday, 9 December 2011

Just listening to CD's & YoutTube and wanted to thank you, again, for including Arizona in your recent walkabout. I enjoyed seeing your performance so very much, and hope to see another some time. :)

Aleks on Thursday, 8 December 2011

Take another hop across the pond and join us in Canada again. I can guarantee without a doubt that most of my "acquaintances" (who may or may not have a very distinct likeness to Max Headroom) would absolutely be tickled pink on the topic of "Papists." Wishing you well!

Watched you last night at the Uncaged Monkeys gig. Excellent end to the show. Tears were in my eyes at White Wine in the Sun....you have a beautiful voice. See you next time you are in the UK :)

Hi Tim! I came across with a video of yours recently in facebook, I guess it was "if I didn't have you"... Since then I have been watching every piece of video I can find on the net and I have to say I enjoy your songs/poems, shows in general, a lot. When I took a look at your event calendar, I saw that you've been performing in english-speeking countries (logically, of course). I currently live in Germany and would love to see one of your shows. Would it be condsiderable to arrange shows in Berlin, Amsterdam, Switzerland, wherever, anywhere closer than London?

Brilliant. We love you here in New Zealand. Wondering if you have thought about coming to NZ? To Christchurch would be great - something to look forward to in the new year would be marvellous. It's not that far from Oz... do you think you could pop over in Feb before heading back to the other side of the world?

Never heard of you until today. (I'm a Mum, I have no life) You are AMAZING! Love the hair. You have a very workable combination of wit and talent. Now to go see a show! Keep up the fantastic work!

YOURE FREIND on Tuesday, 6 December 2011

hey. I hadn't heard of you the last time you were in Portland. But now I have. And I would like to give you money. Oh, and see your show. Please come to Portland. Pretty please.

Hi Tim, just wanted to drop you a line (well, more of a paragraph) to congratulate you on everything about your past work and your current projects :) I've heard snippets from Matilda and it sounds fantastic, I would love to see it :) Also, your work with the heritage orchestra is just gorgeous. I love all of your songs and they never fail to make me chuckle ;) My eyes welled up the first time I heard White Wine In The Sun as I'd been searching for a way to describe Christmas from my sceptical point of view and this song perfectly describes what Christmas is about for me :) I love the way that you convey ideas about very interesting issues but with highly witty and intelligent lyrics. Your songs make so much sense and Storm? Well, it is a complete work of genius! When i first heard Storm I thought 'At last!' someone is talking sense! Another of my favourite things about your work is how you seamlessly thread irony through it :) such as in 'Bears Don't Dig On Dancing' or 'I Love Jesus' ;) Obviously, I find your work highly humourous and entertaining to say the least, but I'm also thankful that there is someone who can put eloquently to music, the points that I can barely scramble together in words ;) In case you haven't quite got the picture yet I love your ingenious work ;) Also, great to hear that you are a fellow fan of Noel Fielding and The Mighty Boosh as am I and lovely to see that Derren Brown is also a great fan of yours. It's lovely to see my favourite people crossing paths and enjoying each others work! Sorry for rambling but you deserve every word :) Your great Tim and don't let anyone tell you any different ;) (love what you sung for Phil Daoust by the way- his words were disgraceful and ultimately.... wrong;)) Love and hugs, Jazz x (P.s..(oh come on there had to be a P.s. with someone as talkative as me..), I love the big haired, eyeliner, skinny jeans look ;) and I haven't met you but you seem like a really genuinely lovely guy- hope to meet you one day x) P.p.s I am finished now..

G'day mate, we have just watched Ready for this, and we gave you a sitting ovation. My nearly ten year old cacked himself and has invited you to his birthday party- high praise indeed. Best wishes from Tasmania.

Hi Tim, 't was my birthday last week and I finally got some of your DVD's! Weeeeehooo! Couldn't get them myself earlier, cuz I don't own a credit card. Wish I had the cash to come see one of your shows in the UK, but alas! I can't (making boohoo face), wish you'd come to The Netherlands instead. Take Jules Buckley with you if you will, he does the Metropole Orchestra as well... ;).. Really hope you are willing to give the lowlands a try someday (soon...beggy face)...

Taz Burr on Sunday, 4 December 2011

can you please post your song phil dauost on your youtube page

shamefully anonymous on Thursday, 1 December 2011

Tim, I just wanted to spend 30 seconds to let you know, I'd walked past your stuff in the video store and no shit, I initially did not pay any attention whatsoever, mainly because I thought OH NO an emo on crack argh. Mind you I kept this entirely to myself and didn't go out spuriously claiming you were shit or anything like some absolute wankers that you've dealt with. I digress, the point is, since I got the opportunity to enjoy your performance, I wanted to publically apologise for being a complete twat and judging a book by it's cover as such, you're hilarious, intelligent and politically and religiously the most in tune motherfucker I've ever seen, so, sorry I was a cunt, like it matters what I think or say anyway but, if nothing else I just wanted to say, for anyone who hasn't seen your stuff, and does like me, misjudges a book by the cover then you are ignorant ridiculous and risk missing out on an amazing entertainer, seriously, rethink it, whatever you do do NOT miss this guy!!! You know, the thing about you is that you're incredibly human and genuinely give a fuck about what you do, which is extremely refreshing, anyhow, I think that's enough of a plug/apology for now, so much for 30 seconds that lot read like 30 years eek!

You're no more important than anyone else. A reminder for your fans (one of them called you a god [how insulting {cause if there are gods we exist despite their failures |do these symbols count as brackets too?|}]) more than anything else.

You are the best satirical musician I have ever heard! I love all of your work! Please do more US shows! Thank you for being you and doing such great work! -Florida Fan

I'm not sure about the hair, but your piano ability and musicianship is something worth immersing oneself in. All my farty old bandmates were similarly impressed when they saw you performing musical finger magic. Regarding the youtube kitten problem, the hair might be useful for the concealment of kittens. Alternatively, you might get the hair dyed tabby, and with a suitable clockwork device to move it about and wave the occasional paw analogue you might yet become more famous than God and even John Lennon. Americans and christianity; why do they become so passionate? We will all find out when we are dead. There will be little ambiguity. However, if there is a heaven, I want to hang out with the atheists because they are a lot more interesting - and fun - than the average christian.

I think you are one of the most witty men since the writers of the restoration. I think your liberal, and atheistic worldviews are wonderfully logical and refreshing. I also think you are one of the most attractive men I have ever seen work his fingers in such magical ways. ;) Love you man. Keep up the great work. - A Canadian Fan

I love your wit, when I first heard you I immediately thought back to all the british comedians/comedic shows (the writing is always so quick) I grew up on. A statement to be made and so practically presented. The freedom of your candidency is refreshing and welcomed. Cheers and keep it coming; it's a vantage point that needs a voice.
