So, last night at All Time Low in Glasgow my friend and I took our horse masks for a laugh and when the band asked for a photo of the crowd, I was asking everyone around me to help lift my friend into the air to be in the photo and someone did and after a few seconds, Alex stopped and said “who let the fucking horse in?” And then when my friend took the mask off he said “oh, she’s cute!” And then “I wanna fuck that horse!” And then they asked for the horse masks and my friend threw one and my other friend threw the other onto the stage and Jack and Rian wore them whilst playing a song and it was so surreal and absolutely amazing
I finally took myself to go and see the Kelpies up near Grangemouth today. They opened in April this year, and I’ve been very slow at getting myself over there. Partly because I’m still a bit nervous about driving… I shouldn’t have worried though, because the journey was fine, and it was absolutely 100 million percent worth it. They are incredible! I loved every moment of being there, despite forgetting my gloves and freezing my fingers off.
These marvellous 30 metre tall steel sculptures were designed by Andy Scott and represent the lost industry of Falkirk and Scotland, but also the progress of modern society. He has a variety of other pieces dotted about central Scotland (www.scottsculptures.co.uk/theworks) so if you’re nearby you might already be familiar - I actually drove past Arria at Cumbernauld on my way to see the Kelpies.
To find out more about how they were made, or their history, take a little look at these sites:
by far the best moment of last nights show for me was witnessing Taylor walking back toward the stage down the catwalk to do her final bow and mouthing “I love you” over and over again at the crowds either side of her, to us and to all the people along the other side. I literally watched her mouthing it repeatedly and felt so completely emotional because that’s exactly all that goes through my head as I watch her slay and rule the music industry with this album and this tour… She really does love us right back, guys. I witnessed it.
