I knew it!

I said Conspiracy. Shame it turned out to be true: Bowie pulls out of T in the Park. Paul McCartney to replace? UPDATE: T in the Park organisers confirmed that The Darkness would replace Bowie to headline Saturday night’s main stage. “This year we have one of the strongest ever T in the Park line-ups…Continue reading I knew it!


RSS, Atom, feed readers, news readers, syndication, XML, and a few other terms aside, what’s it all about? Prompted by Lyle finally adding an Atom feed, and this post by the venerable Mr.Sippey, I’ve been delving into this whole thing again. And once again the ‘simplest’ way for me would be to export my blogrolls…Continue reading Syndicate


I have a little ritual when I get into work; make coffee, read email. Simple. Many other people have the same ritual. Thankfully I was slightly more awake than a co-worker of mine was this morning. I mean, do you really have any excuse when you forget to turn your coffee mug up the correct…Continue reading Coffee

T in the Park #3

Saturday on the King Tuts Stage Now we are getting to some of the better known artists, on the stage sponsored by one of Glasgow’s best venues (where Oasis were discovered if I remember rightly).

Ohhh in case you don’t know, Dominic is the drummer for Muse, and David…Continue reading Conspiracy?

T in the Park #1

Saturday at the X-Tent Right, here we go. The X-Tent is the smallest stage, and I’ll probably only be there for the earlier bands. I’ve heard of a few of them, and I’ll list the rest in case there is anyone I MUST go see. No doubt a lot of these will suffer as they…Continue reading T in the Park #1


So, watching highlights of Glastonbury, some good stuff, some mediocre. All of it whetting my appetite for T in the Park in a couple of weeks. Ohh did I mention that the best mate a man could have in the whole wide world ever managed to score some tickets? Top stuff! So, with that in…Continue reading Festivals
