The peril of rumors.
Rumor has it that my blog is too depressing to read! Hmmmph. There was that Woody Allen clip, and I do so like my young Brits in tight, yet always ill-fitting pants. (Do they have special tailors?) But if that is not enough to satisfy you, dear reader, to show my good sportsmanlike nature and all-around sprightliness, I've decided to post a pretty (in the non-ironical "Pretty" sense) musical interlude. For reals. Stop laughing, you in the back. Troublemakers. You can tell by the white shirts.
So, here's a gaelic spinning song by Julia Fowlis. She grew up in one of the few remaining Gaelic-speaking communities in the Outer Hebrides. I tried to find her version of "Blackbird" in Gaelic, which I have, but it appears unavailable on the intertubes. You could always contact me....
Just a pic with her voice, but what a voice!
