It took me a while to listen to anything other than Frightened Rabbit. It was really the only band flowing through my headphones for a good month or two. Frontman Scott Hutchinson has a way with lyrics and simple guitar riffs. I have been so enthralled I felt like they deserved a second post on here just in-case people missed it the first time. The song being performed here is called “Good Arms vs. Bad Arms” which is an awesome song title.
Easily one of my favorite songs of all-time.

Glasgow Necropolis is one of my favourite places. Its a nice place for a picnic. I took these photos on a bright and sunny day, quite unusual weather considering this is Glasgow. Most of the graves date from the 19th century, and many of them are very elaborate. My favourite grave is a fancy monument resembling a theatre stage, unfortunately with some of the statues missing heads. It belongs to a theatre owner and actor who died in 1851, who apparently was very vain.
