    oh - the "if Star Wars was set in Glasgow' thing.......
    I had it on here somewhere - when I find it, I'll post it in this thread.

    Funnily eough, across in the England room, there is a version "if SW was set in Essex' which is basically the same jokes with cockney slang, and isn'y nearly half as good....

    Thanks for the above post - I've been looking for that comedy Starwars in Glasgow email for ages :)

    Always makes me laugh when I read it over.

    I'll make those yankee-yeeha's read it here, and see if any of them understand it.

    I might try and pen something similar in Aberdonian for us northern sheep-friendly people.


    Thanks again

    Vienna, Austria... disappointed huh? I know I´m actually in the wrong thread, but I just had found that Glaswegian version of SW and wanted to share... anyhow... I´ll be visiting Glasgow n Edinburgh in September, maybe I pick something up... I´m going to live abroad after my studies are finished here and I picked Scotland... so you can say a probably soon to be local.. I wanted to go to an english speaking country, but the americans are strange, the english too posh (and god is it expensive!!!) and australia is too far away for my liking... now did I manage to offend someone? *gggg*

    Ah wud like tae stay n try masel oan yir slang (now was that awfully ****** up *lol*)

    Cheers,
    Wendy

    Aye, Amercuns be a wee strange. Jus lookie me!

    Wow, the Scots have fans all over the world, not just here in the US. And it also looks like the FF Scots are gonna have to be hospitable to us visitors as well. Still don't know for sure, but I'll probably make it there next year through school.

    Edinburgh's got the Parliament, so house and flat prices are higher..
    Glasgow is just as nice, cheaper and has less snobs :D
    Look forward to seeing ya....

    I suppose it will depend where I get a job... I´m working in the event and theatre field and while Edinburgh has THE festival, Glasgow is a little "younger", isn´t it?

    But I think I will like Glasgow.. here in Vienna I´m living in an old industrial district and it has this special charme... it´s also very cheap to live in...

    Glasgow is scary after dark - mwhahahahahaha

    I'm from Aberdeen (scotlands third city) so I can give you unbiased opinion of both Glasgow and Edinburgh. Both are nice places with high points and low points - same as anywhere really.

    Edinburgh has the Castle, Parliament, Hollyrood Palace, the Royal Mile, the Forth Road and Rail bridges, excellent shopping, fantastic places to eat and drink. Loads of warm welcoming pubs and an amazing atmosphere when the 6-Nations are being played.

    Glasgow has..........erm...........well.....

    Take the sensible choice and live and work in Aberdeen.

    I checked out Shara's website and stuff - very impressive - I loved your jedi outfit. Oh, I'm in Maryland now, just outide DC.
    Oh, and I'm terribly home sick.

    thx Malkie!!! I will visit Aberdeen too (on a 3 days railroad travel)...

    and I´m not scared of Glasgow... I always loved places which are a little "dark".. I´m not feeling too comfortable in "polished" places... but it really depends on where I get a job

    Yiv been away too long Malkie :D
    Glasgow easily ***** on Edinburgh these days
    ? in terms of pubs and restaurants it's on an equal footing, but, as Wasted Woman notes, it has a younger feel to it....

    And accomodation is better and cheaper.
    If you really need to see the tourist traps in Edinburgh, its only a £7, one hour return train.

    I like what I know of Aberdeen, via playing gigs up there, and going to weddings and stuff ? but I do remember the streets running wild with drunken oilworkers from around aboot 2pm on Thursday afternoons till Monday morning..........

    Those aren't oil workers - it's me and my mates fae uni ;)

    Having been all over Scotland this year - Aberdeen, Inverness, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Skye, Dundee (I stopped for a McDonalds - my hunger was so great I risked stopping there) - I would say that you was probably safer going to Glasgow :eek:

    Though I may slag Glasgow off for being a sheeitehole (don't get me wrong - it is ;)), it is very visitor friendly. Cheaper than the other cities IMO, alot to see and do, and MUCH easier to find a parking space (though that's cos one of my mates stays just next to town). It's probably alot easier to get to other places from Glasgow too.

    One downside is that it is very hard to find your way once you get lost in Glasgow (though this is coming from the boy that got lost in Elgin for Chrissakes!)

    I wouldn't reccomend Aberdeen (where I'm from) - we have enough foreigners taking over and don't want anymore ;) Just kidding. There's not that much to see and do up here though. It's quite crap

    first place I ever played was......ooooh........ just across the bridge on the main st, take a left, first pub on the left... what was it called? a pub with a stage.
    Not played there for years, but used to be up once a month when I was in an indie band..

    the mighty Amphetameanies have been in Aberdeen twice, once at the Lemon Tree, which was an excellent night, and once at the place next to the vodka bar, dead close to the first place I mentioned.... that wasn'y as good... but they wtill gave us rooms for the night and loads of cash, so we'll probably be back... :D

    One of the 'meanies correspondents is currently scouting various new Aberdonian places for us to try. any thoughts?
