    Went to see Sage Francis & B.Dolan at the stand in the square.
    Was awesome - as was Abandoman.

    Try for returns. Usually a few.

    Scotland can be a beacon, within these islands and beyond, for a socially just and sustainable society. Whilst there are many priorities which will require independence, there is also much that can and must be done now by the Scottish Parliament and the Scottish Government.

    I read this as "fridge recommendations". The really sad thing is, I actually opened it! 😳

    Edit: I can't see past Zanussis 😜

    Had a Friday afternoon to myself so decided to take in a few of the Free Fringe shows. Walked out of one, another was pretty poor but absolute standout and well worth going to was a boy called Stuart Goldsmith at the liquid rooms annex.

    Pete Firman is really good. Not normally a huge fan of magicians but he's really entertaining, and funny too.

    With the popularity of his podcast I'm surprised be still does free shows. I suppose some comedians prefer the the freedom that offers them.

    Other top free shows:
    Kieran Hodgson @ Voodoo Rooms
    Richard Gadd @ Banshee Labyrinth
    Lloyd Langford @ The White Horse
    Rob Auton @ Banshee Labyrinth

    Pete firman
    Abandoman
    Joel dommett

    They've been my pick of the fringe so far. I'm very much looking forward to seeing foil arms and hog again after they've been brilliant the last 3/4 years!

    Stuff I saw this year:


    Strange Face - Adventures with a lost Nick Drake recording: Loved it.

    Dark Tales: Okay.

    Dream Dangerously - Neil Gaiman documentary film: Loved it.

    Nosferatu's Shadow: One of the best things I have ever seen. Stunning. Go and see it.

    My Festival this year.

    Wind Resistance was simply stunning.
    Carol Ann Duffy and John Sampson, poetry and music. Entertaining.
    Horse in Careful was very good and brave. biographic play.
    Flit was well done but a bit too metaphorical.

    In order of preference

    Wind Resistance
    Horse in Careful
    Carol Ann Duffy and John Sampson
    Flit

    Jason Byrne was excellent!
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, vodka in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!"

    Shows I've been to this year...

    Yeti's Demon Dive Bar - it is a bit weird but quite funny in a Mighty Boosh sort of way. Too much audience participation (but I would say that as I was 'picked out'.)

    Late Night Sexy Show - musical comedy. I was conned into going to this by my wife who neglected to tell me it involved a naked guy playing the guitar. Not that funny.

    This Glorious Monster - sketch comedy. It has a League of Gentlemen feel about it. Quite good.

    Adam Kay - musical comedy (the show is interestingly called 'Fingering A Minor on the Piano). I've seen him a few times before so knew what to expect - except the ending of the show took a very dark, sobering turn. Highly recommend.

    seen a few of the pay what you want shows today and all where good in there own way

    ahir shah @ cab vol. place was absolutely packed, show was based on modern life/social issues/politics, with plenty humor.

    olaf falafel @ city cafe. completely stupid but enjoyable. hes apparently had success on vine and the show included a number of these he's recorded.

    ari sharffir @ the hive. quite dark humor, which he warned of at the beginning, with plenty holocaust and abortion jokes.

    overall ws a great mix with perfomers who i'd all reconmend.

    I ended up sitting about a foot from the toilet amazingly I survived unscathed while all around me didn't! Absolutely amazing show the guy who plays Renton was superb.

    Daniel Sloss earlier was average I thought, bit disappointing as I was expecting more.

    Saw a band called Bookends. They're a Simon and Garfunkel tribute. Very good indeed. Venue 43, they are also doing a gig with a string quartet at the Featival theatre in January. Really are worth a visit.
