KAZOO MAN LIVES

The so-called biggest annual arts festival of the world, the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, commenced here at the weekend. The city is, as usual, full of kazoo-playing juggling clowns on unicycles, various 'living' sculptures, multi-coloured dungarees, Shakespeare in a bouncy castle, and the usual faux controversial plays and exhibitions, in addition to the other 20,000-odd shows that are reputedly on. You'd think there must be something worth seeing...

Not much on entertainment-wise, but there seems to be a couple of art exhibitions that may be of interest, such as works by Robert Mapplethorpe at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art and those incredible lifelike scupltures by Ron Mueck at the Royal Scottish Academy Building.

Thanks for these recommendations, John, will check them out.

Some more things I've spotted that may be worth seeing include a double bill of films about child soldiers in Uganda and the film Destricted showing at Cineworld on the 17th and 19th of August. Would love to hear your thoughts if you see any of them.

Hi all...


I come from Poland and actually I spend my free time in Dundee (Scotland). Besides I enjoy that I can change my opinions on this BLOG. As I saw the posts, here isn't any place for opinions about WHITEHOUSE - is it true? Even if yes, I always wanted to know your (WB) non-musical views. Sorry for my English...
