The author visits Falkirk's pride and joy:



Then nips off to visit uncle immo:



The caretaker said he didn't know any dipso, playwright genius working there though, so didn't get to buy him a pint.

Planned on visiting Rutherglen this afternoon, but didn't get round to it. The CP's banned me from hitting every short arse, baldy twat I see in case it's spermo anyway.

Y'know a Pee-emm wouldn'tve hurt

Was bored shitless and very chien-noirish on the day in question: an invite to a cultural afternoon with yerself and the Ging-herrVenusian shagpot CP woulda been most welcome.

Just back and catching up after a sojourn in the land of the dark satanic mill.

Saw Downbeat Stevie's contribution to the Hebden Shorts show.

(6 X 15 minute stage plays ... Paddy the vet and Marlon the chef from Emmerdale were in two of 'em )

Fuckin brilliant it was.

(DS's play like - the rest were 'variable' )

Joyce Branagh (The under-achieving Doncaster Rovers' centre-half (and Kenneth B's younger sis ) ) directed it and is currently in possesh of a copy of Liverpool Echo.

Sorry immo. Didn't know which day we were going to Falkirk, was all a bit up in the air. Wasn't supposed to be a cultural outing (in Falkirk, which would say is impossible anyway. Bad tempered old twat ), just a flying visit to town for a pint and off to the wheel. Talking of which, they have got some nice Specialized bicycles in GW Smith in the high street.

Promise I'll PM you if there's a next time.

Don't be offended, but Falkirk is not a very pretty town.

Only cultural expedition was a trip here:

http://www.glasgowlife.org.uk/museums/our-museums/burrell-collection/Pages/home.aspx

The exhibits were not particularly good, but it was really quiet and the subdued lighting made it a lovely, relaxed experience to wander around after a late lunch and still nursing a hangover.



Big City (Glasgow) Observations I may add to these as I remember them.

1 Vodafone 3G is crap. Anyone on Voda and have the same problem around Glasgow?

2 Every other person is carrying a can or bottle of Irn-Bru. No wonder you're all fat fuckers.

3 The choo choos never returned my waves, fucking snobs.



No pics from Hebdon Bridge? Pictures or it didn't happen.

If when LE is put on, the CP and I have decided to make a pilgrimage and support you by attending, only if we get comps mind.

Don't worry Licker, his best chance of putting on LE before a live audience will be in the prison library. So tickets will be free.

Don't be offended, but Falkirk is not a very pretty town.

Why would I be?

My comments on the dystopian qualities of this partickler turdus concreti floating slap-bang in the middle of the drizzle-lashed sea that is Chilly-Jocko-Land are a matter of record.

Falkirk is a parochial shithole.

There... Ive said it.



Didn't take any pics on this visit - fucking nightmare rail journey and excess glad-handing of luvvies.


Took some on the last trip tho - they'll hafta do.

York is one of my favourite stations - fuckin magnificent cast-iron vaulted roof on it.

They were having a 'Sustainability Day' on the Saturday.

If they'd called it a 'Bunch of Smug Dirty Middle-Class Hippies Behind Market Stalls Day' then Toots would've prolly been better prepared for the shock (and consequently less testy).

Luckily, in this snap she's just spotted the 'Anger Management Through Aromatherapy' tent on the left and is about to administer the shoe-ing of a lifetime to soembody called 'Moonflower' (probably )

Downbeat Stevie is front and centre auditioning for the Hebden heats of The Golden Shot.

On the Sunday morning Downbeat Stevie suggested that we all take a walk over the fields to Hebden central.

Toots' reply was unprintable - even on this forum.

She went in the car with Joolz.

Me, DS and his kids got the better deal.

A long, beautiful, lazy meander across a sea of buttercups - down a steep incline to a cool, mossy-green dappled ravine - onto a narrow path beside a burn with a stagnant pool at the end of it and onwards to the town.

Brilliant discussion with the kids on the way down.

They'd watched Back to the Future the night before and the topic for discussion was...

"Time Travel - Backwards or Forwards?"

If you've ever enjoyed Luke Rhinehart's superb 'swimmer' analogy for life at the start of The Diceman...

(shady/shite book mind. )

...then you'll know what I mean when I say that this was most definitely an 'island'

Luvly

Hebden central was pretty much as expected (for a Sunday)

Some ridiculously-clad wankers parading through the streets on/at the head of a ridiculously incongrous beast - much to the uncomplicated delight of a bunch of scruffy-lookin cunts that looked like they could do with a good wash.

And it wasn't even the 12th.

I took this snap of Sperms' car on the Saturday morning.

You're on your last and final tautological warning pally

You breach that exclusion order one more time and I'll set Toots on ya.

Back on 'topic', the Wheatsheaf is where many of Falkirk area’s aging hippies from the John D in the seventies now congregate. Perhaps with a pint of ‘Moroccan Mellow Bitter’ or ‘Paki Black Lager’.

I’m not sure. But they'll be closer to sixty than fifty.

They’ll be there tonight.

Hmmmmm - I wonder



It's a Lotus Esprit BTW

Although it does look like a Lambo... I'll give you that

How's tricks man?

Any cultural nuggets/reviews to share?

I watched Matt damon in Green Zone this week.

It was awright.

Kick-Ass however... is an entirely different cuppa meat.

Not really into wanky sports cars, Immo. A dotcom millionaire like me appreciates quality and refinement rather than some dick-measuring implement.

Been at the Tate, the Tate Modern, the Brit Museum, the Nat Portrait Gallery, a Thames cruise to Greenwich and a few other highlights including a West End show over the last 10 days. Apart from that, just work work work, including today and all next week at Farnborough.

I went the the National Portrait Gallery earlier this year.Excellent exhibition on the Tudors.Not a modern art fan but I like my history.I recommend the National War Museum at Lambeth(the old Bedlam .Also get yourself down to the National Maritime Museum.
