A spot of T, anyone?


"This weekend, I’ll be going back to T In The Park. I haven’t been since 2009, not because I didn’t enjoy it but because I did, and I thought if I leave a gap, you know, I’ll come back and probably have a better time than if I went back every year.

"So I can only guarantee one thing this weekend and that it will rain, that’s what all the forecasts say, especially since I’ve bought some sunscreen, so yes it definitely will.

"There are a few good acts that I want to see and a few on the maybe list, but ultimately, I’m just going to see what happens over the weekend. I’m there Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

"I won’t be spamming Facebook, Google+ or Tumblr, I’ll be leaving it all for Twitter and if you want to follow what I’m doing, what I’m seeing, you can follow the, erm, search string that I’ve set up in the… I was away to call it a translation, it’s actually a transcription.

"But if you click the link, er, that’ll bring up, er, anything under my username with the T In The Park official hashtag. It’s all clever stuff.

"Carry on."

Revenge of the rant.


"Yesterday, Monday, you may have seen a rant that I recorded on Saturday about the Royal Mail after getting a Special Delivery letter.

"And I found out what it was today, I managed to go this morning, and it was T In The Park tickets. Now, I got a confirmation e-mail at ten to two this afternoon saying my tickets should arrive in the next couple of days. So they e-mailed me basically after, well after they’d dispatched it.

"So at least it’s not bad news. I mean, we were thinking maybe it’s a jury citation, maybe it’s something important like that. But, er, I’m glad the T In The Park tickets have arrived. I’ll be… probably be covering that subject a bit more in video blogs in the near future, so I won’t go too much into it here.

"So, I feel that my rant still stands about the service from the Royal Mail. However, it wasn’t bad news in the end as I’d expected.

"Carry on."

Original video 2011-07-16: Return of the Gavs.

I need to apologise on two counts:

  1. I’ve been experimenting with ways to reduce the file size of my videos without reducing the quality, but the sound on this one isn’t as crisp as it should be.
  2. I intended to post this yesterday but it’s taken so long to experiment that I had to post it today.

And here’s the transcription:

"[Gavin Cruickshank] Crikey, this is the first proper video entry I’ve done for a while, altho’ I did update a few days ago if you scroll down the page, about a music video that I helped to shoot and edit.

"All you need to do is visit the page and if you’re a Facebook user, click Like under the video, that’ll give us a vote and… it’s a competition, and the competition is quite stiff, so the more votes we have, the more Likes we can get, the better.

"In other music news, I’ve booked my T In The Park ticket for 2012. It’s a whole year away, which is quite a long time to plan in advance, however it’s… I last went in 2009 and I thoroughly enjoyed it so I thought I’m not going to go back in 2010 because it would have ruined it but now is the time to return.

"And this’ll be the third time that I’ve been. The way I do it is rather than camp, I get the bus there and back each day which to me, works a lot better. And obviously, because it’s so far in advance, we don’t know who’s going to play. I mean, Lady Gav Gav could be playing, are you?"

"[Lady Gav Gav] I have, like, no idea. You’ll have to speak to my agent."

"But yes, whatever happens it’s going to be good and, er, I can’t think of a way to end this.

"Heck, I’m just going to leave that in. I can’t think of a way to end this, apart from to say:

"Carry on."
