IMAX Disappointment

So two things i’ve been looking forward to for a long time are going to see The Dark Knight and finally getting to see a movie at the IMAX cinema out at the Glasgow Science Centre. It’s a crying shame that the actual experience of going to watch the movie didn’t match up to the […]

"'Iron Man'? That's Kinda Catchy."

After seeing Iron Man last night, Robert Downey Jr. has firmly cemented himself into the canon of my “mostest awesome favourite actor types”. I’ve always liked Downey Jr. — highlights for me were his roles in Air America, Chaplin, and most recently, A Scanner Darkly, Good Night, and Good Luck and Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang. […]

Scotland 1, France 0

This surely says it all: Gary Caldwell scores for Scotland against France, Hampden Park, 2006-10-07 I was in McPhabb’s for this game, and the atmosphere was unbelievable. What a great day to be a Scotsman. Oh, view the French reaction too!

'Mon the Podcasts!

Coupla podcast-tastic things happening, both of which have sweary bits. Woo. First, myself and some of the LugRadio IRC/forum regulars started up hashlugradio, to discuss topics brought up in episodes of LugRadio, but also brought up by the community members. We cranked out a first test episode and released it last week — it’s done […]

Tear Gas Attack in Glasgow

Looks like while I was up in the Sports Cafe on Sauchiehall St after the Scotlug meeting last night, someone was in Frankensteins on West George Street spraying CS gas around the place. I’ve been there before and it can be pretty packed on the best of nights. If that tear gas had been something […]

Wha's Like Us? Damn Few, And We're Aw Pished!

The Scottish Executive is planning new reforms in Scotland’s licensing laws including bans on happy hours and other “irresponsible” promotions. This kind of thing is good, as this country’s relationship with Ra Drink has always been somewhat love-and-hate, but when I read Tory MSP Brian Monteith‘s comments that we shouldn’t be treated like “children” and […]

Zero Four

Another year, another bunch of drinks 🙂 Went out with Andy, Jade and Jess — started at Jess’s, then Bar Oz, Waxy’s for the bells, and then some random flat out west. Good night, good craic, sorted. Made it home just before 8 — I only remember the actual time because I snapped a couple […]
