I've found a few bits on BBC Alba that are in Gaelic but have no English subtitles. It's sort of getting me want to learn a bit.

Saying that, I've been wanting to learn Finnish for ages but never got around to it... I suspect it's the problem of words that sound really cool to non-natives that actually turn out to mean the absolutely mundane, which is what caused me to lose interest in other languages in school.
If it sounds good, listen to it

I'm in a lucky place that the government has given me a £120 grant for an online learning course for Gaelic. Annoyingly it's a very Dublin-centric style of conversational size instead of an Ulster dialect, but at least it's a starting point.

To be fair to everyone who hopped aboard the sarcasm train at Gandalf there, checking the gigs & tours section once every few days or even weeks doesn't exactly take a lot of time :P

Had my sleep eeg today. As far as I know it looked pretty normal, and the drugs didn't whack me out as bad as it did for some people there. And my technician looked and sounded like Shae!
