Quiet Hogmanay, and now a subdued Burns Night. Ho hum. Anyway, here's the best, most radical Burns poem, set to music by Old Blind Dogs.



Here's to that, world.

^ I recently learned the USSR was the first country to put Burns on a postage stamp! :keke: "Great national poet of Scotland" the stamp said, commemorating the 160th anniversary of his death.

Issued 1956? I'm sure Burns would have had lots to say about the USSR that Stalin wrought.

"Here’s freedom to him that would read,
Here’s freedom to him that would write
There’s nane ever feared that the Truth should be heard,
But they who the Truth would indite."

But in 1956 Stalin had been dead for 3 years and Bulganin was chairman and wasn't he an ally of Khrushchev and supporter of destalinisation?

I'm subscribed to a YouTube channel called Epic History TV. They do mini-documentaries about history. They did a 5-part series on Russian history, they've done a massive series about the Napoleonic Wars that is brilliant. But the first videos of theirs I saw was their series about World War One.

And throughout those videos they used a bunch of royalty-free music that is generally kick-ass but there was one bit I love more than any of the others they used and for fucking ages I keep coming back to try and find out what it is but I could never seem to track it down.

Until today. I finally got it.

“Party’s in My Head” by September. I’d post a YouTube but I never seem to have much luck with it. :awesome:

All the gays seem to be mourning Sophie. Having never heard of her before, I’m feeling positively straight.

Also, not to speak ill of the dead or anything, but who the fuck dies in a moon viewing accident?

I'm pretty certain it was the falling and hitting the ground part wot done it. The context of moon-viewing in which this occurred is an irrelevancy. Unless it was that monster moon from Legend of Zelda, then that might be relevant. But it wasn't Zelda monster moon, as you well know.

That's all I've got. Getting a laugh with this is fairly difficult, you know. :P

Woo, I am loving my new discovery of Duplex Heart. :awesome:



I like the slighty tense vocals here. The acoustic version is good, too.



Long live placeless stock-musak! More pop! I want more! MOAR!

Sophie didn’t like pronouns. You’re supposed to refer to Sophie as Sophie at all times and all sentence structures.
