Just In Time For A Highlander
For Duncan MacHarg, things just got real...
Battle reenactor and financier Duncan MacHarg thinks he has it made-until he lands in the middle of a real Clan Kerr battle and comes face to face with their beautiful, spirited leader. Out of time and out of place, Duncan must use every skill he can muster to earn his position among the clansmen and in the heart of the devastatingly intriguing woman to whom he must pledge his oath.
Abby needs a hero and she needs him now
When Abigail Ailich Kerr sees a handsome, mysterious stranger materialize in the midst of her clan’s skirmish with the English, she’s stunned to discover he’s the strong arm she’s been praying for. Instead of a tested fighter, the fierce young chieftess has been given a man with no measurable battle skills and a damnably distracting smile. And the only way to get rid of him is to turn him into a Scots warrior herself-one demanding and intimate lesson at a time.
I saw video online and thought it apropos for our blog. It’s the actors who play Rupert and Angus talking about time travel.
Sometimes albums hit me immediately, sometimes they take a while to grow on me. The Scottish Enlightenment‘s album St. Thomas feels like it has lived comfortably in my head for years, but I’ve only listened to it twice. Atmospheric guitars are my thing.

And because it’s nearing Christmas, and this was released as a Christmas single a few years ago, here’s The Twilight Sad covering INXS’ Never Tear Us Apart. It’s brilliant.
We have run out of actual Outlander material, so we’re turning to stuff about Scotland, or time travel, or both. Listen to Episode Five of our podcast, in which we discuss the movie Highlander. iTunes link.
Big thanks to the Inverness band Call to Mind for the use of their song Breathe as our intro music. They are brilliant and your life would be improved by listening to their album!
Do I have a problem? Am I a wee bit too obsessed with Scotland? Definitely. But it’s a delightful problem! We just binged on all three seasons of the BBC Scotland sketch comedy show Burnistoun. Only about a quarter of it was completely incomprehensible. The rest of it was hilarious. You can watch all episodes in full on Youtube. Here are a few of the best bits:
Ok, we neglected to post here when we put up Episode 3 of our podcast (in which we discuss Rent and The Garrison Commander). That episode is up, as well as Episode 4 (in which we discuss The Wedding and Both Sides Now). iTunes download or direct download Episode 3 and direct download Episode 4.
Stay tuned for our next podcast, which we recorded this past weekend, it is a True Delight.
