The Twenty Sixth: "Ressurection"
The Twenty Sixth: "Resurrection".
After a short break of one year, we're back. This time around there's no songs, no jingles, no social networking, all of it put to one side to make way for even more of our "unique" brand of "comedy" banter. After a year of heavy research we've enough material at the very least to celebrate St. Andrew and his pretty ironic cross, and on the subject of crosses, call for the crucifixion of some Scottish referees. Back with a vengeance are the usual reviews and dead celebrity poetry, including the new Stoppable movie and a bit about Bruce Forsyth's saga.
To be frank, the usual pointless drivel as we rehash old material and try to remember how to speak after a year of thankful silence. Enjoy, and send us some new messages of hope to email@example.com.
Err, is it too much to expect this time?
Looking at that last post, you'll have noted that quite some time ago now, we'd had a vague thought that we'd be hitting the ol' podcast trail once again, but that ultimately, we never managed to do it.
(he says tentatively) We may be recording the first of the new series tomorrow night.
Stay on your guard...
What you're about to read could very well be described as the most earth shattering announcement since Ghandi was shot:
On Tuesday, 16th February in the Year of Our Lord 2010, Alan and I will be dusting off the microphone, shuffling ourselves in front of my p**n-laden laptop, fixing each other's flaxen hair, and firing ourselves up for the fire crackling Second Series of our little For the Love of G...lasgow podcast.
Expect the expected, in other words the usual tragic nonsense, because after a fair few months' break we're full once again of vim and of glorious vigour, and cannot wait to fill you in on what we've been up to since you last heard our most angelic of voices in your ears. OK, so I could very well sum up what we've been doing as:
erm, we've been playing the PS3 and our new HTC Hero phones, and stuff...
...but I'm sure as always we'll drag that kind of gold out for at least 30 minutes per show, so tune in, turn up the noise and spank yourself in time with the beat of our comedy genius.
The Twenty Sixth will be with you soon...
Happy New Year
Yup, happy 2010 folks. That's it for now. See you soon.
Well that's it for another year.
We're signing off for 2009 and the end of the first decade of the 21st Century. You'll be glad to know that we'll be back again next year for a second series of purile nonsense, lots of empty chat about nothing, basically more of the same rubbish you've come to hate us for.
I'm waiting to get delivered a wee fandangly bit of hardware that'll allow us to video our pointless diatribe and post it onto iTunes and all the other places we shouldn't be allowed, so at some point in early 2010 you'll be able to watch us rip shreds in the fabric of comedy rather than simply listen to us.
Sounds great eh?
Yeah, I didn't think so.
In the meantime, make sure you keep up the momentum of our richly-successful Booze for Scotland campaign by getting completely sozzled oot yer coupon over the festive period (only responsibly, of course), and we'll see you again soon.
Oh, and if you do choose to go booze crazy in the coming weeks, here's a wee link to help you yack it all back up again!
A break's a break for aw that!
Just a wee note here to let you know that we're taking a wee break from the podcast.
Call it the end of The First Series: "Bored" if you wish, but we're both concentrating on our respective solo projects for a bit. I'm doing a new podcast called Glasgow Generations with my Dad, and Alan's planning something far more exciting which I'm not allowed to tell you yet!
We hope to end the first series by doing a wee video to tie things up, well, that is, once I work out how to do a wee video to tie things up, and no doubt I'll post it up on the blog, YouTube, the ol' Top Ten Glasgow Guide and wherever else I can fit it in before anyone notices.
Until then, Alan and I would like to thank what's turned out to be the thousands of listeners to the show who've tuned in and / or commented during the first 25 episodes. It's been nothing less than an absolute joy to watch Alan grow older with each passing show, and we hope to be with you again very soon.
