STRAYA! A preamble ramble type thing

It’s been a while since I properly wrote something on here.  How are you?  I apologise in advance for the general scattyness of this piece, it’s mostly me getting my thoughts down on ‘paper’ and getting a bit of discussion/feedback going from friends/followers who have more travel experience than myself.

So, let’s get to the point.  Next year, I’m going to go to Australia for a month.  Mostly in and around Perth, but I’m also planning to nip across the subcontinent for 4-5 days to see the sights of Sydney.

Here’s the real head trip – it’ll be the first time I’ll have been abroad since 1992 and my first ever air travel experience (the first and previous time I was abroad, I went to France via Holland and Belgium on a ferry).  No better way to acclimatise myself to air travel than to spend 20+ hours in planes, right?  Just as well I don’t have a fear of flying – far from it.  Hell, I used to harbour ambitions of being a fighter pilot as a kid.  Then I discovered that I needed glasses, and as it turns out, I don’t really do well with the whole military discipline thing, so that wouldn’t’ve worked out all that well anyway…

Anyway, I digress.  Australia.

Gradoberg

So, last night, at ICW’s show at the ABC in Glasgow, this happened.

That mashup of the Goldberg theme and the version of ‘Like A Prayer’ that Grado uses for his entrance was put together a few months ago after I had a daft idea sparked by Grado meeting Bill Goldberg in Las Vegas, and there’s my daft wee idea playing a part in over a thousand folk losing their shit.  Mental.

So, if you’re here, you probably fancy a wee cheeky download of the mashup, aye?  Well, fill yer boots!

And if you liked that, please do me a favour and go here and download my band’s debut EP.  And give us a wee ‘Like’ on Facebook while you’re at it.

(In case anyone’s interested in the technical side of it, short story is that I used Propellerheads Reason, with the default Orchestral sound bank that comes with it providing most of the sounds.)

My thoughts on Star Wars Episode VII

Right, been a while since I wrote a blog, but I’ve been thinking about this topic for a while.  I was thinking about shooting a video about it, but I reckon I can do a better job of getting my thoughts across in written form rather than by babbling into a webcam.  Warning, this article contains spoilers for some Expanded Universe stuff.  Most of the stuff I’m spoiling has been around for years, though, so fuck it.

So, friends, join me, as I prattle on for ages about what I think’s going to happen in the new Star Wars films.
