There's a woman from Glasgow (Scotland, not Montana) that shares the same filtered air as me in the headquarters of my benevolent employer. The other day she was talking to me about the weak economic shape of her mother country when she said:
"It's very bad. My friend is a medium -- spirits speak through him, you know -- and there's just no work. He had to move to Norway."
1) While I don't dispute that Scotland's economic situation is less than ideal, I'm inclined to believe that the lack of a burgeoning economy isn't to blame in this particular case.
2) Is there a great deal of work for mediums in Norway?
Gruff Rhys (pronounced "griff reess")was on OneMusic Tuesday. There's clearly something not quite right with that boy. For that alone it's worth it to listen to the show (Gruff is there from about 10 minutes in), plus you get to hear Gruff's impossible-to-imitate Gog* accent.
And it was fun to listen to Gruff and Huw struggling to speak English to one another. I liked when they just gave up and dropped into Welsh.
*A Gog (from the Welsh word "gogledd") is someone from North Wales.
