EZ Barbers

February 28, 2009


I was thinking though say he gave you a haircut like this

Or This


What would you do,would you demand your money back,cause a scene,risk getting a punch from the boxer or would you leave sheepishly saying cheers mate see you next time.

I know what I would do,I would leave sheepishly and buy a set of clippers.Getting yer haircut can be stressful at times.Thankfully he does a good job.


TheThe and Aurora Ave

February 26, 2009

This song by the great 80’s band The The depicts driving around Aurora Avenue pretty well

The The were an excellent 80’s band.I remember my brother had the Infected album and we taped their video album off the television.

They knew how to make a good music video in the 80’s.

YouTube – The The “Out of the Blue (Into the Fire)”.

Snow again!!!

Sometimes I like driving around  the Highways listening to some good old American Rock.Here is one of my favourites.

YouTube – Kansas – “Carry On Wayward Son” 1976 Video.

My favourite road to drive around is Aurora avenue or Highway99 as it is also called.You can get anything you want on Aurora Avenue from a plumber to a prostitute from a haircut to heroin.Anything goes it’s my favourite road it reminds me of America from the 70’s like  a Kojak episode or something.Here are a couple of photos taken from Aurora.

Aurora Avenue drugs,guns the American dream.

I saw slumdog Millionaire the other day.I really think I might have been built up too much for this film.It was a very good film but I don’t know,I just had some problems with it.I don’t think it was the best film I’ve seen all year although it was good so I don’t want to put you off it.

It was the bit at the end,don’t worry I am not going to spoil it .

At the end of the film I was feeling sad at the plight of all the  Indians living in the slums.The movie didn’t really show much hope of any improvement for them.So I was sad and I thought you were meant to feel that but then they all started doing this bollywood dancing in the Train Station,they were happy as fuck.Whit was that all about?

I don’t know can someone explain that to me.

Anyway Oscar Party 5pm my house Sunday you’re all invited.

Glesga Documentary

February 17, 2009

I found the documentary about the East End of Glasgow that I was thinking of when I called this blog Bingabinga.It is an interesting slice of Glasgow life I think it is from the mid eighties its a nice uplifting short.I like it at the end when the hero of the short piece say’s “shoot the bastards”.He talks about shooting more bastards in part 2 if you can be bothered.The East End of Glasgow is a place full of character my mum and her family come from there.In fact come to think of it I was born there in Rottenrow maternity hospital.I lived my first year of life in Tollcross.Aaaah the East End a Glesga ye cannae beat it.

YouTube – Glasgow Nutters versus Loan Sharks (1 of 2).

Here are a couple of typical views from Glasgow’s East End.
