Hello there inmates!

Good day fellow inmates of the world! How are you all doing? Ultimately good I hope! Things have been pretty decent for me too. I’m having a good start with the new job and I am actually enjoying it. I know, it was a surprise to me too! Here’s hoping for a bright future eh? I wish I could say the same about the weather this week. It’s been diabolical honestly. Not cold or anything, but changeable to say the least. I got soaked the other day on a minor 10 minute trip. I was most tilted. I hope that all of you are having more luck in your respective neighbourhoods.

So, did anybody see the musical theme clue today? It was a pretty obvious one, I’ll confess. A fairly recognisable flag I’d hope. Go on, I’m sure you guessed it right!

That’s it, you got it! Todays theme is the country of Scotland! That most northern part of the United Kingdom. I’ve not yet been lucky enough to visit our northern comrades yet, but everyone I know who has say it’s simply beautiful. I’ve always wanted to visit Edinburgh and especially watch the yearly Edinburgh Tattoo (look it up, it’s so cool). The Scottish are a hardy people who seem to be reduced to a comedic stereotype much too often. All whisky, pubs and haggis. I daresay they’re not all that different from us southerners though. The highlands evoke a certain majesty that you don’t always get to see elsewhere in the UK and I think a lot of that translates to their music artists. It’s a picturesque land that just begs to be sung about. Like any other country though, the inhabitants like and create all sorts of music. For example, Calvin Harris and The Waterboys couldn’t be more different and they’re both Scottish. So, let’s see just how varied I can be today eh?

Please, once more, join me as we delve into the musical minds of Scottish artists!

KT Tunstall – Suddenly I See

Alestorm – Keelhauled

And there we go! Not a Proclaimers song or bagpipe in sight! That’s not to say they wouldn’t be suitable choices I suppose. I think I got a good selection there, don’t you? I was surprised how many bands I know were in fact from Scotland. That’ll teach me won’t it? I hope you all check each of these artists out, they definitely deserve the attention. Slainte Mhath!

So, let’s get the shilling out of the way eh? I must say it would be wonderful if you would all come follow me on social media as well as here at the asylum. I have a page over on Facebook, an account on Instagram and even a Twitter page. I share my poems over there too, but I also share clues for my poems a few hours ahead of time. It’s good fun honestly. Also, if you enjoy what I do here at the asylum, please consider supporting me over on the Ko-Fi page as well! Thanks for everything!

Until next week, have a very crazy day inmates!
