What's your favourite single malt? Is haggis one of your favourite dishes?

Scotland qualifying for the Worldcup and finishing as semifinalists or Murray winning your favourite Grandslam? Can't have both.

I rewatched Predator and liked it much better this time, definitely in my Arnold Schwarzenegger top 5. Where do you rank it?

1. Are you a fan of Gary "Dangerman" Daniels? I can recommend "Recoil":

I still think Leonard was the bigger name and that got him over the line in that one.

Do you this ned rap sums them up perfectly?

1. Yeah, we do have some good musical exports. One who doesn't get the recognition he deserves is Frankie Miller. His career was cut short.

And yeah, Don't Come Home Too Soon is ace. A very different type of football song.

And here's some classic Big Country.

That ned rap is brilliant. Did you live in Glasgow?

3. What is the percentage of neds in the city/town you live in?

Great fighter. Really came up the hard way, while Leonard was put on the path to stardom. Still, I don't think he was robbed in that fight. I thought Leonard won it, if I'm honest. Incredibly close fight, however.

3.

I'd say around 10%. I live in a decent area. It's nowhere near as bad as Glasgow or Larkhall.

Where did you stay when you were in Scotland?

I'm not one to cry at films or television shows. I've been choked up before, but tears never seem to come. My mum and dad call me a "swinging brick". I'm not sure exactly what that means, but it has something to do with the fact that I'll be sitting there stonefaced, while they're in floods of tears.
i love brennan's social retardedness

you sound like me, i think the only reason i cry at bones is im so invested in it, it is my fave show on t.v for a long time. im the same with laughing at t.v, i never laugh out loud (omg i just lol and it had context) at t.v shows. when i used to watch youve been framed my sister would be laughing loads and look at me like im devoid of emotion, i found it amusing but not enough to show emotion.

ewwwwwwwwwww the word that comes to my head is im stoic

I'm not a fan of sketch comedy shows, so Little Britain isn't my cup of tea. I don't like to see the same characters put in a different situation every week, where the goal is to work in their catchphrase as the punchline.

what tv series do you watch regularly? what do/did you think of little britain?

I like the concept of Flanimals. I know Gervais is a hardcore atheist and Dawkins fan, so he has a real interest in science and evolution. It's almost as if he's describing a world in which evolution went in a new, fucked up direction.

Yeah, I know who he is. I check out his interviews on YouTube pretty regularly. I have his book, too. Bit disappointed he is so passionate about his US citizenship, though. He still loves Scotland, but it sometimes feels as though he doesn't appreciate where he has come from. The last 3 pages of his book are a nice tribute to Scotland, however.

He is very good at what he does, and his guests seem to be genuinely fond of him.
