Hello Cobblers!

It once again time for the Sunday sadness, as Monday is quickly approaching. To ease your pain, let’s celebrate the birth of author Irvine Welsh.

Welsh published “Trainspotting” in 1993, and I was not a cool future-hipster five-year-old who read such masterpieces. Naturally, I came to Welsh in my late teens with the film adaptation to his acclaimed novel, and then obsessively re-watched the DVD until it was scratched past functionality. I prefer to go from written word to screen, but Welsh is so talented that any exposure to his creative genius is acceptable in my rule-book.
