Totally gutted to hear the terrible news. I have been away from here for some time but did message with James occasionally. I was wondering why I had not heard from him :cry: FYI, if you're on Thi Farcebook (as James called it, even though he did relent and also signed up there some months before h...

R.I.P. The Molly Blaast

James Blaast's mother, the inimitable Molly, passed away last night at the hospital, surrournded by friends and family after a long stint of respiratory problems. Last I spoke with her, which was about a month ago, she told me she had just gotten out, but still had a lot of trouble breathing, so und...

Me myself listening to the new Paradise Lost, Medusa http://loudwire.com/files/2017/06/Paradise-Lost-Medusa.jpg It is the return to their oldskool doom sound with Nick back on growls, but my GOD how I hate that snaredrum sound! I don't care if it's Dave Grohl's old snare drum because 1) maybe that'...

Meanwhile ... I'm a Peaks freak and always have been; the DH purchased a temporary Showtime membership just so that I can watch it. I think Lynch is finally doing what he really wanted to do in the first place; back then, the technology wasn't there and the show was on network TV vs. cable, restric...

Whilst Belgian beer is mighty fine, Belgian chocolate is really pretty sub par. :wink: You, sir, are an offense to people with excellent taste in chocolate. Since 'Balaton' sounds akin to 'balatum', a bitumen type of flooring, I have no qualms about assuming your tongue and taste buds are lined wit...

Did you do those Ahráyeph? They're amazing 8) Yes, I did. Thanks for the compliment, but all I did was follow James' lead.

From when the man himself was still alive : the correct way to address him was and still is " James Blaast!â„¢ " This includes the double 'a' vowel, the exclamation mark and the â„¢. And no, that isn't his real name. It even baffled Molly when he announced one day he would from then on be known as '...

As an inadvertent positive side effect of James' Blaast's death (if there is such a thing), Ahrayeph now has a T-shirt web shop at Spreadshirt . Plenty of designs to choose from, comes in plenty of sizes too as well as tee or long sleeve, pricing's fair, keeps you warm in winter and cool in summer. ...

I must admit..its very nice nice seeing such warm and caring messages regarding Mr Blaast..who was ,as we all know ..a grumpy old bastard!!.. Only those who couldn't see past the surface, or took the time to read some of the messages in this thread, would reduce the man to being just a grumpy auld ...

The James who was kicked out of here, wasn't the James he was at the end. When he was lashing out in the most terrible way, he was very much in constant pain due to his diabetes related neuropathy. He was on a cocktail of medications that didn't work. Also, having to go into a buzzkill of a job, eve...

Just had Molly on the phone (thanks for the help, Andrew). She sounded as strong and sweet as ever. She told me the funeral's at St. Mark's church on Monday morning and invited me to touch base (a very Blaast thing to say) as soon as I arrive in Glasgow. I can't help but feel she's somehow handling ...

To be absolutely clear, for those who can/want to : any MacBlaastland meet would be held over the weekend, most likely on Saturday. Monday, with the funeral in the morning and me flying home in the late afternoon on the same day, is not the best of days to do this. I'm ok with McPhabbs, even if it i...

Neither can I. We just had a Facetime blether on his birthday. I played 'Happy Birthday' on my guitar to him. Made him laugh. We had a long, long talk about all sorts of things, including his upbringing and how he was getting back on his legs again, doing physio. Hung handle bars all over the house,...
