Rogue Piper

Recommended Posts

Has anyone experienced the rouge ''piper'' thats busking infront of the statue on Union street? My god, its something else. I've never really noticed before as Ive rocked by him with my Ipod blaring. Today I got to hear it in all its wonder and Its awful.

Ive nothing against buskers but due to this guys location and weapon of choice. He's able to broadcast to far reaches. Further than what I believe is socially acceptable. I was walking up from Belmont and I could hear him as I turned the corner onto Union.

As I strolled by I noticed that he had sheet music, a glazed over look in his eyes and was wearing a half assed Scottish attire. I stood for a minute watching him turn purple from the effort he was putting into creating this noise.

This guys something else and its embarrassing. Could one of you have a word or atleast get a picture?

Also if anyones selling an Ipod PM me.

Your title does imply that the man in question is French.

But i think i know what you mean about the "Rogue Piper" in question; his pipes were not particularly in tune.

Nothing worse than a half arsed tuned set of Pipes..... and if they don't wear decent highland outfit.... (far too many people wear the kilt TOO fucking long as it is !)

gimme strength !!! :nono:

It only serves to give decent Piper's a bad name !!

All the pun hating came as a bit of a blow to him.

You're skirting round the issue here.

Usual pan out of events... shame.

No ipod pm's either :down:

Well what exactly were you trying to achieve by discussing this on the forum? Last time i looked it was a relatively free country; he can play his pipes on union street as much as he likes.

I thought 'pan out of events' was some obscure bagpipe pun (pan-pipes?) :up:

I saw the bagpipe guy the other day, but scuttled past before he opened fire. I didn't know he was using an i-pod.

What ya "err"-ing at Jan....what I'm saying is very valid...

too many times (at things like weddings) I've seen guys wearing the kilt far below the knee, couple that, with hose/socks pulled up too high too.... and it just makes it look f*cking stupid.....the bottom of the kilt should just come to the knee when you kneel down (keeping thighs straight)

and.... You just don't wear a belt with a Prince Charlie/waistcoat outfit...its evening wear ffs !!!....but kilt hire places seem to supply them for some reason ???? Duh!!!

and..... I wish they'd teach folk how to tie Ghillie laces !!!

...there is more....but I'll leave it at that for now !

rant over !
