Month: November 2018

Happy St Andrews Day

Here, for once I can tell you what flower this is. Here we have a Sidalcea 'Elsie Heugh' also known as prairie mallow 'Elsie Heugh', a flower growing in the middle of our herb bed in the garden. Something to remind us of the summer on this gloomy and rainy last day of November, our very own national day here in Scotland.

And while I was supposed to have the day off, I ended up having to go to work for some emergency remediation. Lovely!

In any case, I do wish you all a wonderful weekend, not long now till Christmas.

Dzongzar Kyentse Rinpoche writes an open letter to Aung San Suu Kyi and it’s pretty scathing

… towards the West while offering his full support to the Burmese leader.

It’s actually hard to disagree with anything he says here and it reads as one of these pieces of truly uncomfortable truths that we often think about but dare not speak out loud.

Yeah I would rather he hadn’t used a quote from Bannon to make a point but I think by doing so he drives the nail a little further home because the truth isn’t always comfortable and even the worst people can say things you can agree with (if you quote then out of context).

Whatever your opinion about Suu Kyi and her (lack of) actions towards the Rohinga issue, all those acts of stripping her of awards (including the city of Edinburgh) is purely Western arrogance at its best (worst?)

Busy busy

Between making stuff and playing music, I'm finding my time is quite well occupied these past few weeks, which is a good thing.

In other news I'm quite proud of the fact that the only bargain I got (today anyway) as part of those BF deals is a beautiful book about Japan. No 4K TV this year (or like ever probably)

Enjoy the weekend.

Eye of the storm

Today was a pretty good day, it started with feeling pretty energised with a brand new heavy metal album which came out this morning, this was followed by getting 2 more albums I've had in my wanted list for some time and all this influx of new music is good for (what is commonly referred to as) the soul.

Music is the best drug that won't give you bad side effects (unless you listen to it too loud, so please don't do that)

Stan Lee passes away at age 95

Undoubtedly the heart and soul of the Marvel Universe, Stan the man always felt like he would go on forever but alas we aren't all blessed with the long life of the Asgardians and so it was that today he went to join Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko and of course his wife Joanne who passed not so long ago in the pantheon of legends never to be forgotten.

#RIP #RIPstanlee

And thank you
