The Gigaweek

7th Oct - 7th Nov 2013

I (think) I made up a unit of measurement: The Gigaweek. Or maybe I’ve just hijacked it. Find out what - I think - it means inside…
Inside, I cover cool stuff like lighting rigs, voluntary gigs, and other shindigs I got involved with. Since I thought about (but didn’t start) covering each individual event in a separate blog entry, I made up for it with other stuff.
ALSO: a special “Stevie’s Top 40”.

The Og Blog (and other stuff)

7th Sep - 7th Oct 2013

I might rename The (Hons) Blog to The Og Blog after my new favourite pub in Kirriemuir (are the Americanisms annoying you yet?). I was initially going to see if I could get away with writing about events that happened a month ago and quietly update the blog index - but some of my more eagle-eyed readers would catch me out, I’m sure. Anyhoo, The Og Blog, The Hound of the Baskervilles, a kids’ fund raiser Disco and the Bon Scott Statue fundraiser…
