Posting these rather far after the fact, but here are links to some articles I’ve written recently.
Review – Blood Brothers at Leith Festival for The Edinburgh Reporter
EIFF Review – An Evening With Chemikal Underground for The Edinburgh Reporter
Top Ten picks of EIFF for Ten Tracks
Making a music video – an interview with artist David Galletly for The Edinburgh Reporter
A blog post on Cineconcerts and the EIFF 2011 for Ten Tracks (complete with Whale Shark comic..)
I wrote an article for Hecklerspray about how an independent Scotland would kick ass at Eurovision.
(Also if you want to re-live Saturday’s Eurovision experience, we live blogged it here.)
This week on 12 Books in 12 Months I chat to The Rogue Verbumancer about characters I’ve loved and lost.
And here’s my weekly Ten Tracks post, featuring details of upcoming Roofraiser gigs.
I have written but one article this week – a post for Ten Tracks outlining some of the best Scottish music blogs.
However, you will doubtless be thrilled to hear that there are Plans Afoot. For one, myself and Andrew will be live blogging Eurovision on Saturday over on my personal blog, A Daddy Long Legs is Not A Father. The idea behind this is to give me a bit more practice using Coverit Live, because the editor of The Edinburgh Reporter made an interesting 12 Books related suggestion that would entail using it. But in an enigmatic sort of way, I’m not going to tell you any more than that just now. More information is coming soon, though.
To celebrate my 101st post on this blog… have some links to things I’ve been writing elsewhere this week.
