One & Other

I know what I like. It’s a phrase I use quite often when discussing art, mainly because it’s not an area I’m all that familiar with having never really studied it other than the odd wander round a gallery or two. I’m quite open to most forms of art, and I’ll happily wander round an…

A couple of weeks ago I asked if everyone who visited my site would leave a comment, and quite a few of you did. Thanks to you all, even the cheeky ones who decided to buck the trend and email me. It was all quite overwhelming and lovely and.. well.. ta! I do appreciate you…

“And coming home it feels like I, designed these buildings I walked by” Having not been returned ‘home’ to Glasgow for a while I was quite surprised, as the train pulled into Glasgow Central this evening, to feel an overwhelming sense of comfortable familiarity. It must be the same as all the Londoners gazing at…

Deary me. Such a silly little TV programme causing such a stir. Let me just mount my “I haven’t been watching it this time” high horse, and we can get started. Firstly I’ll state that I’m not interested in who said what, as my firm belief is that any kind of racist statement is a…

Louise hasn’t been too well the past couple of days, some sort of chest infection which has given her a fairly… hacking cough. Seems to be shifting though. It has caused an additional problem though, namely that she’s filling up the Sky+ box so she’s got stuff to watch during the day. Now, this wasn’t…

I am being very tardy with this here blog, my sincerest of apologisingness. There is a perfectly good excuse, I’m sure, but it’s probably more fun if you pick one yourself. I’d probably go with “too busy” but the problem with that is that, whilst it’s kinda true, I’ve not been THAT busy. Anyhoo. I…

Three numbers. Two of them feature in Lost. I’ve not watched any of the new series. Yet. 4 is the smallest number of colours sufficient to colour all planar maps. It is also the smallest composite number. 0 is the additive identity. It also sparked philosophical debate amongst the Greeks a long time ago (the…

A couple of new blogs (links on the right in the ‘overflow’) to play with. The Big Brother one might be interesting, and Unreliable Witness already has shimmers of possibility. The update to WordPress and the activation of … er.. one of the spam plugins seems to have done the job. Well worth it. And…

“And now for something completely different”. Sex. Well sexual imagery at least, we were sitting chatting a few weekends ago, and ended up putting on some music channel for some background noise as we chatted – younger generation today, must have noise!! – a plug for the channel came on screen and each snippet was…

What we really owe Big Brother. The scarce commodity in our society is not privacy but meaningful recognition. That is why people put weblogs on the internet, exposing themselves for peer review by a trusted community of co-bloggers. So, finally, an explanation as to why we all do it (this thing called blog). Except it’s…

And now I’m in a good mood. Well a tolerable mood at least. Odd that. Anyway, spent last night doing a favour for a friend, but as usual my ‘perfectionist’ view of things kept me up until 2am. I didn’t even get the damn thing finished either. Which means that the fixes for Scottish Blogs…

Big Brother has started again. Yes I watched. No I don’t care what you think of me… Mind you they are a weird and wonderful bunch this time round, I think the lesson’s from last season have been learned. I’ll try not to comment too much on it as I’ll no doubt get bored with…
