One of my current projects is organizing a local storytelling show here in Eugene. The existing ones are not the kind of storytelling I am looking for, and I need a place to practice telling stories on stage. I would go up to Portland, but it is a good 2 and 1/2 hour drive, if I had a car, which I don't, and a good 3 hour train ride or bus ride. Besides being cost prohibitive ($30 per ride up and back via train, $50 for ride up and back via Greyhound), most of the shows are on weekdays. 3 hours up and back, plus the time there for the show means I would have to take time off of work and not get home until about time to get up and get ready for work the next day. As I am the only person in the IT department right now, I would need my brain to be coherent for work.
So my question to you is...what do you think a good title would be for this show? Most shows have a good title to go with it. At this point, I am counting it as a one off unless I can find enough interest, but I would like to turn it into a monthly or bi-monthly thing.
I am so bad at thinking up good titles. I tend to get esoteric and convoluted with the meanings and it turns into something people read and go WTF?
This is going to be a truthful anecdotal storytelling show, kind of like the Moth or Risk! or The Back Fence.
Some of my current ideas:
No sh!t, there I Was
The Front Porch Swing
Quilt stories (or The Crazy Quilt)
What do you think? Do you have any better ideas?
