Has it really been that long?!

Crikey blimey indeed.  As it really been since August that I put finger to keyboard and poured forth inane drivel from my cluttered brain onto this little corner of the internet?

This will be rectified…

I was a little disappointed with the calibre of the UK press’ ‘spoof’ news reports today (something that has turned into a real tradition), until I stumbled over this little gem by the Guardian:

When Jimmy met 50

with 2 comments

Throughout time there are been some amazing musical duos – Lennon and McCartney, the Everly Brothers, and Simon and Garfunkel to name just a few.

But imagine a world where one more pairing was made possible…

Imagine a world where elderly Scottish accordian player Sir Jimmy Shand came together with hardcore American rapper 50 Cent to make sweet sweet music!

Imagine gangsta rap meeting traditional Scottish ‘jig’ music.

This is what could have been possible…and this is what music should be.
