    "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."

Frightened Rabbit

I noticed this band are playing at the Cafe Continental in Gourock on 11th April. The venu is a very pleasant old fashioned pub/restaurant at which you can have a nice meal.

I’d have thought these guys would have been playing stadiums by now.

Too much stuff

There is far too much stuff going on in my heid this morning.

If only there were a song and a photo montage which could explain perfectly what I mean…….



And whilst on the subject of boxing……

Possibly the song I enjoyed most at the recent Knopfler/Dylan gig at Braehead was this:

The decline of empires

Things get interesting from about 1955 onwards:


The REAL Batman?

Jeb Corliss (born March 25, 1976) is a professional BASE jumper, skydiver, and wingsuit flyer. He has jumped from sites including Paris’ Eiffel Tower, Seattle’s Space Needle, and the Petronas Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

He was the original host of the Discovery Channel series Stunt Junkies, appearing in 13 episodes.

Jeb is currently working on a plan to jump out of a helicopter with his wing suit and land without a parachute.

Jeb is a nutter.

Check out this video!

Fisherman’s Dream?

Sand Dancer

My friend Meg sends me this clip.

There’s something good about this.

God’s Comic

One of my all time favourite songs, set to a really unusual series of old silent movie clips.

It’s weird.

It works.


Weird Al Yankovitch’s Dylanesque take on them:

Thanks Claret and Amber.

Great Singer- Great Song
