Glasgow in 2014

Just some photos I took of Glasgow in 2014

It’s been a weird 12 months for my home town; started on somewhat of a low with the Clutha tragedy fallout, built up again with the Commonwealth Games and the run up to the Indy Referendum, and dipped back down again with the trouble after that, and the horror in George Square just in the past fortnight.

Jay & Silent Bob Do Edinburgh

Two guys talk about everything and nothing at the same time.

The man once deemed “Too Fat To Fly” and a man dubbed “Hurricane Mewes” sat on a stage talking to each other, for two hours. Doesn’t sound like much of a show, but damn if it wasn’t one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen live and in the flesh.
