Skipinnish - Walking On The Waves (Scottish)

Whee, my friend Alasdair Murray’s band! Was a shock to see him in a music video!

This is top World Music charts, but slowly falling in the UK charts! Please help keep up the momentum! :)

In this fantasy game, what would be effects in English is the endangered language and Gaelic is the lingua franca? Is it even appropriate to take the language out of its setting for “what if the shoe was on the other foot” purposes?

Girlfriend informed me this is a terrible idea.

Artificial Intelligence dissertation handed in. Augmented Reality project handed in. Now all that is left is this exam. WHOOOOOH.


Want to make a game. Want to make a fantasy game with Gaelic immersion so non-native speakers end up learning Gaelic phrases and pronunciation as they progress.

Pity my Gaelic is less than stellar. But my programming is top notch. Hahaha. Thoughts?

That’s probably the only picture of Sorley I’ve seen that doesn’t look angry.

No tartan, no shortbread – King Creosote portrays a different Scotland
Made entirely of Scottish film archive, a journey into our collective past, the film explores universal themes of love, loss, resistance, migration, work and play. Ordinary people, some long since dead, their names and identities largely forgotten, appear shimmering from the depth of the vaults to take a starring role.
Brilliantly edited together, these silent individuals become composite characters, who emerge to tell us their stories, given voice by King Creosote’s poetic music and lyrics.
There are a few pop ups just close them and press play.
