Oh Yes, At The Moment.

Happy Belated Burns' Night! The night some friends of mine and I attempted to attend two ceilidhs (Scottish dancing events, sort of like barn dancing or contra dancing), only to be turned away like Mary and Joseph attempting to find a place to give birth to Our Saviour of The Good Night. Having failed at both, we went to the pub and sat for a while drinking, which is the other traditional Scottish activity. Ah, and I served vegan haggis, neeps and tatties (turnips and potatoes) to the soothing refrains of the Titanic soundtrack off a Youtube Celtic mix.

In other news, I've had a stressful couple of weeks being kicked out of a flat, but it's good to be back in Edinburgh. The title of this post is an English translation of the well-known 'Scottish' phrase "Och Aye The Noo," which nobody says here and which means practically nothing. :)

So in celebration of Scottish artistic heritage, here are a few of the stranger offerings of '70s Scottish bands, with a surprise Swedish ending (Damnit, it was supposed to be a surprise.)

Happy New Year!

Happy 2013, everyone! And to those who are triskaidekaphobic, happy pre-2014. And to those who are Swedish, of which a few more than would be expected seem to be, Gott Nytt År!

...That is, a few more than would be expected to be looking at this website... would seem to be.

Anyway, a song! By good old Sir Cliff.

Cliff Richard - Millenium Prayer

Where you goin'? Hey... wait...
