  1. Fantasy Baseball 2017

    Marte did that for me last year. I really don’t think players think about the consequences of their actions.

    South By Southwest is a wrap for 2018. I saw 79 sets over six days, and of those I think 72 were in full (40 minutes). I saw Lee Bains four or five times, and Goat Girl twice. I think every other set was unique. Ex-Girlfriends, Doe, and Fruit and Flowers gave day six a distinct indie pop theme. Also took in the brilliant Stella Donnelly, Ron Galo (who gave away his guitar and saxophone at the end of his set) and Slow Caves, whom I had wanted to see for a while. Goat Girl are going to be the middle of festival lineups this or next summer. They’re seriously talented. The overriding trend was for female-fronted bands, and the demise of guitar/drum two-pieces. Both are welcome, if you ask me. The only disappointment was Ought, who basically do a dull Joy Division. I’m quite prepared to say that anything I didn’t enjoy was largely due to just not feeling it. Absolute scenes at Lee Bains III and the Glory Fires, and a spellbinding trip to Twin Peaks with Annie Hart, will live long in the memory.

    There are sets which are just a clusterfuck. But it’s easy to avoid them. I’ve seen some of my favourite artists in tiny venues. The hotels are pricy. I feel I get value for money from whatever I spend. I’m in my element here.

    Courtney Marie Andrews and Frank Turner. Old Crow Medicine Show, Ted Leo and Josh Rouse later tonight.

    Just in from day three of SXSW. Today I saw 13 bands. Ought were the only disappointment, and I’ve come to the conclusion that Wye Oak just aren’t my cup of tea. However, Low Cut Connie, Lee Bains and Caleb Caudle were sensational. Kyle Craft and support This Pine Box made a tremendous pairing, and a surprise performance by Erica Wennerstrom was the icing of the cake. Highlight of the day, year and possibly life was Annie Hart of Au Revoir, Simone. Her solo show was truly beautiful. After five beers on Sixth Street, I was transported into the Roadhouse of Twin Peaks. Genuinely magical moment. That there were only about eight people made it better -a SXSW accident.
  6. The Official President Trump thread

    By 700 votes or something. But that said, this kind of swing in November will destroy the Trump presidency. Whatever he touches dies.

    White Reaper were silly and fun. The keyboard player serves no discernible purpose, except vocals on one weak song. Take them at face value they’re great. Try to critique em and everyone’s in trouble.

    Catholic Action were fun and full of swagger. Better live than on record.

    Day 1 of SxSW in the books. Saw 13 sets. Highlights were Superchunk, the Motor Tom, Lucy Dagil and Catholic Action. Wasn’t taken at all by Wye Oak or Dramatic Lovers. Alex Rodriguez was startlingly dull. Day two promises White Reaper, Lee Bains, and Superchunk acoustic.
  10. Scotland name squad

    Defence looks a bit imbalanced to me, but you can’t say McLeish hasn’t freshened things up. Be interesting to see how many of those guys are called up for these games and never seen again.
  11. Scotland name squad

    He’s Hibs best player. Who he replaces, I don’t know. But I hope it’s not a nod to the populist bent of Malky’s squad.
  12. Premier League 2017-2018

    Burke is not dead. I repeat, Burke is not dead.
  13. Premier League 2017-2018

    That’s a sensational goal by Matt Ritchie.

    Really? Really??? They aren’t even trying to hide things anymore.
  15. Rugby - Union And League

    There’s an issue, but this is Tony’s first campaign in charge. Next season Townsend gets the three easier games at home. Four wins next year or his job has to be questionable. I think Scotland played better rugby today than England or France.
