Good to see you again last night Jackie; it's been a while! Big thanks to Kenny and Virginia for a wonderful film.
and you - sorry if I was rambling.  Visiting BrewDog before hand was possibly not the best move ::)

Dundee last night was good.

There a lot of Cargill's in Crail it transpires.

Imagine our surprise when on Mull last week we popped into An Tobar to see Gogs and Ester and what should they be showing on Friday night but FSWL. It was very well received by the locals, the sound was excellent, nice sork Gogs and it was great to see AJM, Ester and Gogs again.

Hop on the ferry and hot foot it to Dundee to see it again with the Q&A and outakes set. I bottled asking the 2 questions I had considered:

1 - Have you found anyone else who calls a play piece their Leaf Piece?
2 - Given it's sweeping portrayal of the lifespan of a Scottish character, did you ever consider using La-Di-Da-Di-Dum in the soundtrack?

A very enjoyable night, pity we couldn't stay longer to have a drink with Kwaing, the merch desk must have proved popular.

Czeski - I have always called it my leaf piece - maybe it's an east neuk thing?

I would like to have asked "What is the most idiotic question you have been asked so far".  I think the prize in Nottingham might have gone to the woman who said "The film shows life in the cities, the country and in the coastal villages - what about the other bits of Scotland"????? ???

A guy in Dundee asked why the film only showed the workers and not the bosses. Virginia politely answered that the bosses aren't that interesting.

The chat wasn't so great - when will these organisations realise that filming for online content only serves to lessen the spontaneity and wit by putting a'body on edge ... I was on a roll until I saw the red light blinking away furiously  >:(

The consensus was that the bloke form the Art College was the problem.
