Peter A Bell's curator insight, February 22, 2014 6:35 AM

Many of us will be looking at what is happening to RBS and thinking about how similar it all is to the kind of thing that, according to unionist scare stories, would be bound to happen if Scotland restored its rightful constitutional status. But these things are happening while Scotland is still part of this failed, anachronistic union.

Hack Your Craft's curator insight, February 27, 2013 8:26 AM

Are we in the last days where music has completely and literally fallen out of the hands of the people. Lost perhaps is the relationship of holding music In your hands. There is value in the physical objectification of that which inspires.

McOlly Wolsh's curator insight, April 4, 2014 10:31 AM
