The following pish is a collection of postcards or holiday snaps of what I doned in my holidays ‘cept it covereth the whole year. Make sense ? No ? Good. Taint supposed to. There are some pretty collages wot I made special containing a few of my favourite pics from some of the shoots, gigs, events Ive managed to blag entry/been invited/sneaked into during 2012.
What I wont have here is much stuff from the festivals cos they’ve all had their own pages as they happened. You can find that sort of thing on these kind of links if you click them in that sort of way……… BELLADRUM #1 & BELLADRUM #2 (boozy/sober), BREW AT THE BOG, goNORTH & ROCKNESS. (Not bothering with the other beer festival thing as they thought my pics were pish so fuckem – hehe – that’s the POWER I wield here for this is MY space (no not myspace, space that’s mine….ffs).)
Tell you what too also as well I’ve met some damned fine people this year in and around the Scottish Music Industry and got to know a bunch of others a whole lot better. Always remember there are utter wankers in all walks of life tho (and to some out there I will be one of them). I’ve dealt with a few of them this year too but all in all 2012 wisna bad like.
Happy New Year and All the Verilly Bestifimicated Shit for 2013. I love you more than Roast Beef

So there you go – as far as mahooosive anti-climaxes go I feel I have delivered. Still, I feel I’ve done my bit for the local team as far as getting out there with camera and pint in hand. Hopefully I’ll keep it going in 2013 but I need inspiration so fingers crossed for a healthy dose of that. Ideas and wee jobs are in the pipeline (no you manky bastards – not that kind of jobs and not that pipeline). Heres some links to the photos from individual venues over the last year over on faecesboke if you wanna take a look.

Thanks for reading and feeding back over the last 12 months – much love and gravy
