Leaping dude with dreads and the wailing Rickenbacker seems mildly out of place for a Scottish festival.

zman said...

It was either that or a clip from Braveheart.

In other news, I signed up with twitter. I still don't get it. I have a "handle" but my name appears with the handle, so what's the point?

Danimal said...

wow, what a coincidence. i actually wore a kilt to work today.
z - i've tweeted about 5 times in my short but storied twareer. i'm a follower, just like in everything else i do. follow who you might be interested in - certain news outlets, affletes, comediennes, or gay bars. it's great for the early morning work bathroom visit.

zman said...

How do I get the tweets in the bathroom (ngs)?

Igor said...

Tap the foot of the guy in the stall next to yours.

Igor said...

Sorry, that was totally gs.

Danimal said...

ya just go to your twitter homepage...see what's been tweeted since your last check-in....you'll see those tweets of anyone you're following on the twitter machine. news articles, sports updates....what have you.

if you like stewart a. smith...look for him, follow him. maybe you check out who he's following....maybe some of these people are people or outlets you'd like to follow. what do ya do? you follow them. and so on. i'm @realdanimal...come and visit me and see who i'm following. join in on the twitter machine fun.

Another good reason to drink scotch: Waking up.

twitter is too much for me-- i like the slow accretion of comments over here at g:tb.

twitter is like being inside a hurricane of non-sequiturs.

zman said...

So far I have about 10-15 hygiene-related tweets from GFK, a few drunken twits from the Teedge, and one angry chirp from Charles Oakley. I'm not sure this twitter thing will catch on with me.

Squeaky said...

Zman, get some angry or weird twitters on your follow list. Like ghostfacekillah, bestworstadvice, Discographies, daptonerecords (great music label, home of SJDK), waynecoyne (flamming lips fame and he posts random naked pictures of his wife), buzzbissinger and pattonoswald.

I follow mostly bands or music related things and phone technology people. Along with the FOGTB crew.

An earthquake hit Japan yesterday. The magnitude was 6.9. Mixed emotions.

Marls said...

Rob,
Can you advise why you had us lay off of Mr. Whelliston?

T.J. said...

Because the Teej said so...that work for you?

Marls said...

Nope.

What is the ZMan's twit handle?

Marls said...

How very literary of the Zed-man.

zman said...

zman was already taken. As were z-man, zzman, zzzman, zzmann, etc. So I went with my lowlife mug name from the Lower Depths.

Igor said...

digging the Discographies, Squeaker. Enjoyed this:

"Van Halen: 1-6 Sean Connery; 7-10 Roger Moore; 11 George Lazenby."

rob said...

marls - had bigger fish to fry from a real-life perspective. the teej can fill you in.

rob said...

also, got feedback from several in the know that the dude is known for jackwagonish behavior and that they were on our side. so that was good enough for me.

Dave said...

i am in kyle whelliston's kitchen right now, crouching, naked, and starting to take a dump on his tile floor.

i did not get the word to lay off.

Danimal said...

is his kitchen actually his mom's?
i dislike this guy. i would have this opinion even without the rob banishing. shitbird.
