  1. That's the exact stretch of PRW I live by. It truly is the absolute pits. Also, the fucking littering here? Just the whole of Glasgow? I know it's not the only place in the world with litter but it's just everywhere.
  2. Confession - After living off Paisley Road for three years I'm no longer a Rangers fan. You were all right, they're a bunch of total cunts. I'm moving back to Aberdeen shortly.
  3. YES! I love this fact. They had someone inside it operating it, but if the rubber coating around the big steel t-rex frame had too much water absorbed THE THING MOVED BY ITSELF WHEN IT WASN'T MEANT TO. How shit scary would that be?
  4. Yeah, we lucked out with the place we're renting as well. It's a terraced house, but right on the southside of the Clyde. Quiet, peaceful, 20 minute walk from George Square and a 30 minute walk from my work. My new job is bloody magic too, still Higher Education administration, but at the Royal Conservatoire.
  5. Moved to Glasgow and started a pretty great new job at the Royal Conservatoire.
  6. I fucking loved the Norma episode. Related but not related - http://www.vogue.com/13275586/norma-orange-is-the-new-black-punk-singer/
  7. I think that Vee's death at the end of Season 2 and Suzanne's inability to deal with it (given that she has the mental age of a 6 year old) probably goes a long way to explaining her behaviour this season. As to the guards and what the prisoners are getting away with, I think, again, that Caputo trying to be the 'good guy Warden' goes some way to explaining that. Then you've got the place being bought by a corporation that doesn't care about the inmates, but is essentially turning it into a money-making venture, hiring poorly trained part-time guards and overcrowding the prison which I think again is why the prisoners get away with more. The guard aren't trained to handle them, and the ones that are seem more concerned with their livelihoods being destroyed by the corporate takeover. My own opinion is that it's still good, but nowhere NEAR as good as the second season was. Also fuck Piper. Seriously. She's the new Larry.
  8. A Confederacy of Dunces is absolutely brilliant.
  9. I finally, finally finished Kazuo Ishiguro's The Buried Giant and the only reason it took me nearly two months to finish is because a video game temporarily ruined my life. Otherwise, it's a solidly good book, very strange mix of Arthurian legend and old English folk tales. The ending is very sad, and left me feeling despondent for a good hour or so afterwards. I have also recently read the trade paperbacks of Lumberjanes, Rat Queens and Saga, which puts me at 25 for the year and one book behind schedule to hit sixty by the end of 2015.
  10. We swung by in the car and decided to give it a miss after hearing about folk standing for 3-4 hours before getting in. Some of the costumes look awesome, and hopefully it means a bigger, two-day con in Aberdeen next year. I've been reading Rat Queens and Lumberjanes, both of which are just great. I'm all caught up on Rat Queens and plan to start the second arc of Lumberjanes on my lunch today. I've still got to get caught up on Saga, and got a shot of The Wicked + the Divine as well.
  11. bequietanddrive@kindle.com is mine. Most of what I've got is fiction - literary, fantasy some sci-fi. I do have some non-fiction stuff though. The folk who are reading/have enjoyed Harry Potter - if you've not read Lev Grossman's Magicians Trilogy I've got that and highly recommend it.
  12. It was absolutely brilliant. Great set. Corin coming on and going full front woman for 'Gimme Love' was amazing. 'Little Babies', 'No Rock and Roll Fun', 'I Wanna be your Joey Ramone', 'Dig Me Out'....too many highlights. My voice is still wrecked.
  13. I'm reading a Dragon Age novel because that stupid game has taken over my stupid life.
  14. Or: http://www.amazon.co.uk/VonShef-Professional-Masticating-Efficient-Extraction/dp/B00GOYMPSGwhich I might do if it's the same price on Friday.
  15. You should definitely check out more by JD Salinger. One of my favourite writers. I think 'Franny and Zooey' is his best. I will also never not recommend 'Mrs Dalloway' by Virginia Woolf when it comes to novels that are beautifully written.
