Hogmanay Party Jukebox

In Scotland we call New Year’s “Hogmanay” and it is the occasion for the world’s biggest annual party. If you sober up before the 2nd, you’re doing it wrong. I’d like you all to join me in hoisting a glass or two of “the cratur” – scotch to you – as we toast the new year of 2013 and kick of an Agonist musical party. You know the drill – post a link to your YouTube of your favorite new Year’s party music and your drunken editors will try to imbed the video without crashing the whole site.

And now let’s get this party started. Something bittersweet and personal…

…and a footstomper from the vaults.

The traditional Scottish Hogmanay toast fits the Agonist readership well. “Here’s tae us, wha’s like us? Damn few, and they’re a’ deid!”

Happy New Year, folks.

Most recently I was Editor in Chief of The Agonist from Feb 2012 to Feb 2013. My blogging began at Newshoggers and I’ve had the immense pleasure of working with some great writers there and around the web ever since, including at Crooks & Liars. I'm a late 40′s, Scottish ex-pat, now married to a wonderful Texan, with Honours in Philosophy from Univ. of Stirling, UK 1986. I worked most of life in business insurance industry (fire, accident, liability) including 12 years as a broker/underwriter/correspondent at Lloyd’s of London. Being from the other side of the pond, my political interests tend to focus on how US foreign policy affects the rest of the planet. Other interests include early and dark-ages British history, literature and cognitive philosophy/science.
