    Default I missed bug's 2000th post spektakula because I was at the Edinburgh festival!

    I am sorry bug!!! Me and a couple of friends decided to head up to Edinburgh to check out the fest, out of the blue. We were there for 72 hours and barely slept. It was awesome, but it meant I missed your spektakula! Let me make it up to you...



    The festival was awesome. The whole city was like one big party, with spontaneous events and shows in the street going on 24/7:







    Also, look, here is the street from the opening scene of Trainspotting! Ewan Mcgregor runs along the street from the left but then a car pulls out in front of him from that cobbled street and he lands on the hood and laughs and then the cops grab him:



    The whisky there was excellent:



    And Edinburgh itself is really beautiful:



















    I have no idea what this sign says:



    I also ate haggis while I was there, and when I got drunk I decided to try the infamous Scottish delicacy of fried Mars bars:





    My digestive system has still not recovered.

    Anyway, I am back home now, and back on the board, as you can see:



    Sorry I missed it bug! Congrats!!

    Those pictures rule.

    I think that sign says "We started doing a bunch of work but then we said 'fuck it' and started dancing".

    Here's part of the lineup:



    Razorlight and Editors were playing while I was there, but I have seen both of those bands too many times, and I can see them in London, so there was no point. Turbonegro were also playing in some bar, but f#ck that.

    Haggis was.... edible. Imagine salty low quality minced meat cooked with offal and a lot of blood, and then fried. That's haggis.

    I definitely enjoyed the fest though; I'm gonna try to go for longer next year.

    Nobody. I can see bands in London any time I want so it seemed silly to go all the way to Edinburgh and go to a concert. Instead I went to see a few fringe plays, and to some comedy shows, and just wandered around the city and saw the sights. I did end up seeing some Scottish bands in a bar at about 3am but I can't remember what they were called.

    Did you see James? Bastards, Carbaret Voltaire would be a plus at Coachella.
    Whiskey Sour

    2 oz blended whiskey
    Juice of 1/2 lemon
    1/2 tsp powdered sugar
    1 cherry
    1/2 slice lemon

    Shake blended whiskey, juice of lemon, and powdered sugar with ice and strain into a whiskey sour glass. Decorate with the half-slice of lemon, top with the cherry, and serve.

    I wasn't there. I think the Bastards were supporting the C*nts with special guests The Young F*ckers at another town that weekend!

    that bill's not as strong as I've seen in previous years.

    and who the heck would put NIN opening for the Foo Fighters?
