    "Great read every day. Makes me smile as Rab muses about music and his irreverent views on the EU. Tune in, you won't be disappointed."

    "Excellent 'Blog' which can be controversial at times, while maintaining it's humour. Keep it up Big Rab!"

    "Updated every day with doses of good humour, political satire, a running commentary on the progress of author's home football team and his life."

    "Pure brilliant, so it is - I never miss it, though God knows, I've tried."

    "An inspiration to start my own blog"

    "For dipping into it's better than pakora sauce"

    "Anyone who doesn't like the EU and has a soft spot for Albion Rovers can't be all bad"

    "Facile and False"

    "Populist,puerile and prosaic"

    "Utter pish! Keep it up, I love it!"

    "People may also find the Ben Lomond Free Press blog illuminating, interesting and/or amusing. It’s not mentalist as such but familiar themes emerge. I particularly like accounts of encounters with strange elementals (of course! ELEmentals!) from elfin safety. And the fact that the blog is run by someone who plays in a blues band called Harmonica Lewinsky."

Gil Scott Heron – I’m New Here

It takes a lot for a record to excite me these days. This is one such record. It is a masterpiece and the good thing is, you can listen to the whole thing free if you click here.

He even does one of the Lewinskys’ set, the old Ray Charles song I’ll take care of you.

Thanks to both Stu and Amo for the heads up.


Great Headlines of Our Time

There was some chat this morning on Radio Scotland about it being ten years to the day since the  “Super Caley go ballistic Celtic are atrocious” headline in the Sun following the Parkhead club’s exit from the Scottish Cup at the hands of Inverness Caledonian Thistle.

However some of the funniest headlines are almost unwitting. What about this one from this morning’s Independent?

Chinchilla to become Costa Rica’s first female president

Snap Election?

Those in the know have said that the date has already been pencilled in for May 6th. But with Broon set to appear TV with Pierced Organ and playing the emotional card, and with the Tory lead in the polls being whittled away, one wonders if it’ll be that long.

The recent airbrushed poster thing rightly brought ridicule upon Cameron and the Tories. They must be wondering what to do next.

Cameron will launch a personal attack on Broon today on the issue of the three Labour MP’s charged with fiddling their expenses trying to claim parliamentary privilege. He should be careful, as only he who is without a moat should shout duck! at the PM.

Then there’s Lord Ashcroft….

I don’t think I’d be surprised if the election was in April or even March.
