Well, not much to say. I’ve been watching from Christchurch, New Zealand. All the votes are now in. It’s over, and we’re out. Very mixed feelings. As much as this was a vote for the UK to leave the EU, it may also have been a proxy vote for Scotland to leave the UK, and perhaps Northern Ireland … Continue reading "EU Referendum"

I finished The Dark Tower series. Only took me 5 years and 5 months.

Well, I finished Stephen King’s The Dark Tower. I read slowly. Well, no, I read at a reasonably normal pace, it’s just that I don’t read very often. The desire to read is a very sporadic thing for me. It’s taken me 5 years and 5 months to get through…
My immediate reflections after finally finishing the last book in Stephen King's epic The Dark Tower series.

Remember these? No. Well, I don't blame you. I was in Washington DC, four months ago, now read all about how I walked around and looked at buildings and gravestones.

A city full of monuments, memorials, and establishing shots for TV's The West Wing.

Waterfalls! Winter! Wordpress!

Niagara Falls, a whole lot of water, going over a cliff.

Remember these? Three months ago I was passing through Toronto. Not my favourite Canadian city, but it is what it is. It's Toronto.

My recent trip to Toronto - which is not my favourite Canadian city, but is the home of my favourite IATA airport code.

Two months ago, I went into a glacier in Iceland. Now you can finally read all about it, with painstakingly edited photos.

I'm well known as a man of superior musical taste, and people often ask what I've been listening to lately. Actually, nobody ever asks that, but I'll tell you anyway.

Yeah I know, I’m five months behind on the travel reports. I’ll get back to those shortly (as if it matters). In the meantime, here’s something I’m sure you care about just as much – what I’ve been listening to over the month or so. Radiohead – A Moon…
What I have mostly been listening to this past month.

Some middling pictures from two world-class museums. Pro tip: don't visit Washington DC museums on a Saturday when you're exhausted and carrying a heavy backpack, and suffer from claustrophobia.

On my last half day in Washington DC, I headed to the National Air & Space Museum, and followed a guided tour around to look at crazy cool old planes and spaceships, and spacesuits, and all sorts of stuff. This is a great museum for anyone who loves…

Some funny things my Granddad used to say.

Let me tell you about my late Grandfather, Jimmy K. C. Ferguson. When I was very young and visiting my Grandparents in Inverness, my Granddad would walk me around Inverness every morning to wear me out. He would take me to look at the trains in…

Now look at these photos from Akranes, an Icelandic town that has two lighthouses. Next to each other.

Here's some of the music I enjoyed during this calendar year, 2015 AD.

It was a bit of an odd year for music – and in general. Mind you, I feel like I say that every year. I ended up digging through a lot of old favourites, expanding collections, and showing up late to a lot of old parties. 2015 saw me chewing through…

Confirmed human after extensive testing.
Introduction
I'm Paul F. Ferguson. It's a common name, so I add the F. Gives it a presidential feel.

I studied as an audio engineer, which I would love to do more, but at present I must take whatever work is available.

I was born in and have lived in Scotland my whole life, currently based in Glasgow though hoping to relocate. Maybe to Canada?

I love music, I love TV and film, I love games, I love technology, I love art and architecture, I love stories, I love mythology and culture, I love nature and trees and plants and animals, I love science and philosophy, I love ideas and concepts and words and thoughts. I don't like sports though. Also sea slugs creep me out.

Also, I have a beard. In my soul.
Location is fantastic, close to the National Mall and Metro station. Dorms are large, with plenty of storage space. Larger than average lockers. Complimentary breakfast is okay. Beds quite comfortable. Bathrooms and showers facilities are limited unfortunately, given the dorm size. Overall, one of the better big city hostels I've visited.
