Of all the animals of prey, man is the only sociable one.
Every one of us preys upon his neighbour, and yet we herd together.

Earworm redux

When you hear the news:
Blocks of flats which have been part of Glasgow's skyline for almost 50 years will be blown up as part of the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony.
there is only one possible soundtrack...


  1. I don’t quite know what to make of this but I’m leaning towards stupidity.

  2. Ah yes.

    Now it's presumptuous of me to speak for Subrosa and Julia M but please, Macheath, less time gap between posts please.

  3. subrosa, it is definitely odd; nothing says '21st century metropolis and world-class cultural destination' like treating a global audience to the ultimate in redneck pyrotechnics.

    JH, thank you for your enthusiasm!
