    I’m sure I’ve told the story of that time I had a featured reading and killed it but in the open reading that followed an a cappella hip hop group calling themselves the Square Roots took the stage and made everyone forget I existed… by the next year they were the Roots and well the rest is history but anyway just found the notices for my reading lol 30 years I’ve been carting these slips of paper around!

    Well, it's obvious you kept them so you could share them here now with us!

    A "worth certificate" given to yourself by yourself can be very heavy..... but priceless!

    i understand that what ive posted is as useless as liquor store receipts (although ive saved none of mine), but i thought that these old clippings had some small interest at least. but obviously not universally, so hey, mock away.

    It's great you have something left of those performances. I wish I had anything left of my performance history. At the time, it didn't occur to me that hand-bills, adverts and posters would one day be treasured snippets of memorabilia. Well, at least to me... :)

    My sincerest apologies. In no way did I equate a fond memory to the receipts from a liquor store. Just trying to be humorous. Actually I have receipts still in my wallet from a couple of music store purchases. Again not trying to make light of the importance of one’s fond memories. It was not a mock but just a Bud at the party. I hope you’ll forgive the statement.

    I would have to think that even seeing the receipts/notices has some kind of mnemonic effect and bring back some pretty cool memories.

    Keep that stuff a few more years, the memories are worth it.

    A few weeks ago I was tossing old clothes to make room in a closet for other stuff. I found some old suits that had shrunk in the dark so they no longer fit. I went through the pockets before bagging them for donation, and in one I found an invitation to a social event from way back in January 1990, which was in the beginning of "Chapter 1" for my (now) fiance and I. We are currently in Chapter 3 (it's been a loooooong story). I showed it to her and we had a good long look back through the years, both together and apart.

    I'll keep that old piece of paper.
