    "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."

North Korea Latest

As you know I like to keep up with events in Asia via the North Korean News Agency I had thought there might be something about the wee rehearsal they organised for World War 3 but alas I could find nothing. However I did find out what’s hot and what’s not on the DPRK music scene.

I think I may get “Glory to our Great Party” as a ringtone.

Songs Dedicated to WPK
Pyongyang, November 29 (KCNA) — A lot of songs have been created in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea this year when the 65th anniversary of the Workers’ Party of Korea was celebrated with Kim Jong Il reelected as its general secretary.

Among them are such songs reflecting all the people’s praise of the WPK as “Glory to Our Great Party,” “Party Is the Leader’s Embrace,” “I Song of the Party” and “The Youth, Advance Following the Party.”

The song “Glory to Our Great Party” highlighted in October performances celebrating the WPK anniversary mirrors the feelings of the Korean people and army absolutely trusting in the WPK and deeply revering it.

“Party Is the Leader’s Embrace” was created in March when the Korean people were bringing about a fresh upsurge in the building of a thriving nation, in response to the joint calls issued by the Central Committee and the Central Military Commission of the WPK.

Such songs as “Fascination and Reverence” and “I Song of the Party” came into being in June when the 46th anniversary of General Secretary Kim Jong Il’s start of work at the WPK Central Committee was observed and “The Youth, Advance Following the Party” in September when a historic conference of the WPK took place.

The new songs inspire the people with the belief that the country will become more prosperous and the people will enjoy a happy life under the leadership of the WPK.

    Someone should tell them that China thinks it’ll be best if they were reunified with the RoK and under Seoul’s control.

    I just have wrote about dissatisfaction in the DPRK.
