Re: What Are You Currently Reading

"Kings of the Wyld" by Nicholas Eames.

Fantasy with a broad streak of black comedy running through it. Sort of "The Magnificent Seven" meets "Conan the Barbarian".

Re: Not sure where to put this.

Any of you folks know of any derelict/abandoned buildings in Glasgow that myself and one other could use for a photoshoot?

Somewhere easy to get into, but at the same time off the beaten track enough that we're unlikely to be bothered by the polis or other such busybodies.

Re: Boredom Thread: What advert drives you insane?

An ad I absolutely love, is the new Argos one - "Operation Holiday".

Family of five, dad, mum, teenage daughter, two younger boys, all going their holidays in a Chinook helicopter.

Saw it for the first time yesterday morning, and I just howled with laughter. :)

Re: Boredom Thread: What advert drives you insane?

Next gig for me is on Saturday night at the Usher Hall in Edinburgh, a band called Public Service Broadcasting.

Re: Boredom Thread: What advert drives you insane?

Being carer for my poor wee mammy, the original gig being on a Friday was ideal cos it meant my brother could come over after his work to keep an eye on her.

Re: Boredom Thread: What advert drives you insane?

I've seen them live three times so far - twice in Glasgow, once in Edinburgh. Would've been four, but their recent gig at the Hydro got rescheduled cos of the snow we had last month, and I couldn't make the new date.
