As Instagram has taken it upon itself to block me from adding new contacts, captioning my own photos, and 'liking' and commenting on my contacts' photos for the second time in a couple of weeks, I have decided to discontinue my use of that site and to invite my contacts from Instagram and Facebook to join me here on LiveJournal instead. If you have seen my post on Instagram regarding this or have received an invitation by e-mail from me to set up a LiveJournal account, please feel free to do so: nothing will make me happier! Setting up a LiveJournal account is easy. The account set-up page is here. All you need is a unique user-name and a password. Basic accounts are free. There is no obligation to post regular updates on here if you don't want to, but the occasional comment to let me know you're reading will be gratefully received.

For reasons of privacy and security, most of my posts are viewable by LiveJournal friends only. In addition to written posts, I post photos regularly, including all of those that I've recently posted on Instagram. All will be revealed when and if you decide to add me.

My 1990s Top Ten

Tuesday, 9th January, 2018 | 15:25
Location: Edinburgh
Mood: coldcold

I think the early-to-mid-nineties were great for music. I was spoiled for choice in the first part of the decade and had to omit quite a few favourites, but the choice tended to thin out towards the end of the nineties. The songs I've posted here are mostly a mix of grunge and gothic metal, along with a more thrashy element from Megadeth and Pantera, which I love for their amazingly technical playing and despite the fact that Dave Mustaine and Phil Anselmo have shown themselves to be a couple of right wing, racist tossers. The fact that their bands produced some classic music does not mean I approve of their obnoxious views.

My 1980s Top Ten

Saturday, 23rd December, 2017 | 12:53
Location: Edinburgh
Mood: calmcalm

There were a few fairly barren years for music during the early 1980s (1982 having a particularly thin selection of songs I consider to be classics), so I've had to make a few compromises in my choice of songs from this decade. I think most of my favourites from the 1980s would be categorised as classic metal: evidently, the 1980s were the decade for metal, although it didn't really seem that way to me at the time. It was a genre that was almost totally ignored by radio, TV and, with the exception of the fairly awful Kerrang! (which mostly concerned itself with cheesy hair-metal bands and bland American AOR crap), the music press. I doubt if Kerrang! would have had much to say about most of the bands I've listed here.

Edinburgh by night (again)

Sunday, 12th November, 2017 | 00:38
Location: Edinburgh
Mood: calmcalm

I eventually managed to persuade myself to get off my chair-shaped arse and head down to Tesco at Duke Street to procure some urgently-needed feedstuffs at getting on for nine this evening, and while I was out-and-about, I took the opportunity to snap a few photos of the city by night. The ability of my camera to take hand-held photos in darkness never ceases to impress me. It seems to view the world in a clearer, brighter, sharper way than the human eye can, and everything seems to glow. Mind you, my human eyes probably aren't up to much these days!

The Fiend at the Windsor Hotel, Kirkcaldy

Saturday, 30th August, 2014 | 23:39
Location: Edinburgh

The Fiend, The Disturbed, In Evil Hour and Gummidge at the Windsor Hotel, Kirkcaldy, 30th August, 2014. I think their name is rather naff, but In Evil Hour stood head and shoulders above the other three shouty, generic punk bands at this gig. They had tuneful songs, proper singing and were much more interesting to watch. Otherwise, this was a very weird and strange night altogether. It could hardly have been more different from what I'd anticipated. Maybe it's just me, but I haven't felt so unwelcome and unwanted in a long time. I couldn't wait to get to hell out of there. Oh well, I suppose there's nothing else for it but to pick myself up, dust myself down and rejoin the battle. Tomorrow's another day.

Day-trip to St. Andrews

Friday, 17th May, 2013 | 10:52
Location: Edinburgh

What a lovely, beautiful, fabulous day it was this morning. Sadly, I managed to waste half of the day by trundling all the way to college and back when I had no classes to attend. Idiot! So I decided a trip to the beach was in order, or perhaps a visit to the Beveridge Park for a spot of sunbathing. I couldn't be bothered walking all the way to the middle of George Street to get a slow, bone-shaking bus to Kirkcaldy, so I decided to head down to Waverley Station and put the train fare (almost a tenner) on my credit-card instead.

My new skinnification-utensil

Location: Edinburgh

[ Miscellaneous: 2011 album on Flickr ]


My new exercise bike in my living-room on 21st December, 2011.

One moreCollapse )

My new skinnification utensil (see above; £99 plus £5.50 delivery-fee from Argos) arrived a week ago last Monday, just in time for me to succumb to a delightful dose of the 'flu. As a result, I haven't been well enough until now to embark upon my mission, but I resolved to make a start today, and have achieved my goal of two fifteen-minute sessions (actually 25 and 21.5 minutes respectively, as I continued cycling until the end of the songs that were playing on my computer at the time). Fifteen minutes per session may not seem like much, but it's been a long time since I've done any serious exercise, and it was quite long enough for me to work up a sweat. In fact, I haven't needed to put the fire on all night, so I've achieved a very useful additional benefit which I'd been hoping to gain from utilising the skinnification-utensil.

My plan is now to increase the length of my sessions by one minute per day until I'm doing perhaps two 45- or 60-minute sessions per day. I'm sure that will be enough to achieve the desired effect. Back in the days when I was so skinny that I kept having to haul my 30"-waist breeks up, I was in the habit of doing one daily 60-minute exercise bike session.

I'm fair' pleased with myself and feeling good!

Well, hello there! How lovely to see you again. Has it really been a whole eight months already? The sight which greeted me from my kitchen window upon rising on 10th December, 2011. As if Hurricane Bawbag wasn't enough to be going on with. Remember when we used to have winters when it never snowed at all in Edinburgh? We didn't realise how lucky we were!
