More of Asty’s Blues: Down to the Station

G’day, all!

Some of you may have notice that this week’s episode of ‘Bilitis’ is a little overdue; as is my next episode of ‘Virgil’s Aeneid’… I do apologise and promise to post them both within the next few days…

Some of you may also have noticed my conversation with Algae over at the Pigs’ Arms, in which I promised to post a new blues tune I’ve been working on… (Indeed, that’s what has been taking up most of my time lately… learnin’ the blues!)

As it turned out, I thought that a link to just a tune, with no visuals, is a bit boring, so I had a search of youtube to see if I could find some appropriate movie footage to go along with it.. Here’s the result:  (cue drum roll and fanfare of trumpets)

My dear readers, may I present for the first time ever, the premier viewing of Astyages’ new movie, “The Great Train Race – Down to the Station”, starring The Flying Scotsman, and featuring that other lovely old loco, the R761, as they duel it out for supremacy across the rugged plains of Outback Australia!

Enjoy! And PLEASE, leave comments!
