Hello. Yes I am still here.
Since I last blogged I had this photo of my wee boy strolling by the side of Glasgow's new Riverside Museum (designed by Zaha Hadid) published in the Herald newspaper:
I liked then loved Chris Lilley's Angry Boys:
I baked some cakes - Torta De Santiago, Orange & almond, Eggless Pineapple (I substituted the Cardamom Powder with Nutmeg & Cinnamon) and a disastrous banana oaf, I mean loaf. Or do I?
Oh - and I was turned onto this. And now I am turning you onto it (wish Ben Dunlap was my professor):
I am re-reading the powerful Maus book(s).
I have been making some mainly instrumental music. I did write a wee song called "Hey Pumpkin". I'll let you imagine how it goes for now.
I saw Almodovar's "The Skin I Live In":
Yikes. 2 thumbs up from me. Although my favourite Pedro A opus remains "Talk To Her".
Teenage Fanclub played a festival last month in Aranda Del Duero, Spain. Good wine country there apparently. I like wine. I like Spain.
More things I like? All in good time, my child.
