So what is timesnewroman? It's not the font, rather my take on the age we live in. The USA is the new Rome and the times we live in are timesnewroman.

Happy New Year

Hogmanay already. I'm feeling somewhat sorry for myself, having not only spent an enjoyable night watching these chaps play live - The keyboard player does youthwork at the same place as me and also pretty much runs the Rockschool as well. They were excellent, definitely a lot heavier than they used to be. thewife is particularly fond of "Where I am" downloadable from their website. They haven't included it in their set for some time, so they did it as a request which was kind of them. We had ordered a taxi for fairly soon after they were finished, when what I thought were roadies were moving the equipment actually turned out to be a second band. They were just getting into their set and sounding really good, I mean Arctic Monkeys cover was excellent, when the taxi arrived. We had to leave wanting more which I suppose is the best way to go. Seems the pub is having gigs on Fridays regularly so could well be a fixture from now on. Anyway I was feeling somewhat sorry for myself as I not only had several pints whilst out, I also had to have a nightcap once home. Then its the start of silly drinking season for the next few nights on account of Scottish New Year traditions. Urgh ! Anyway a Happy New Year when it comes to one and all.
