Seriously though, I just realised that Mark Burgess replied to my Tumblr post. I think I just pooped a bit. 😁😁😁😁
quitekaytea said: Hey Mark, can't wait to see you guys in Glasgow on Tuesday. My family have had me hooked on your music since birth, and it means so much to me to see you play live. I don't know if you'll see this before the gig but it would make my night if you could give a shoutout to Katie and the Pakies (like pay-keys lol) No matter what, I know Tuesday will be one night I never forget!
Hi, I’m sorry that I didn’t see this before the Glasgow show. I hope that you enjoyed it as much as we did. Glasgow was such a great crowd and it was a blast to end the tour there.
chameleonsvox Thanks for the reply, it’s amazing to be able to chat with you! The Glasgow gig was tremendous, and we already have ourselves booked up for the weekend in Manchester. See you then!
the last week of september is sea otter awareness week. where most marine mammals rely on a layer of insulating blubber to keep warm in the water, sea otters make use of their dense fur coat.
in fact, their fur is so thick and soft that for centuries humans have hunted the animal. by 1929, sea otters had been virtually eradicated from alaska to california. and while populations of the animal are currently making a remarkable comeback in british columbia, they nevertheless remain an endangered species.
sea otters play a vital role in their aquatic ecosystem. in the absence of the animal, sea urchin populations explode, leading to the eradication of kelp forests, which in turn affects fish, sea birds and even eagle populations.
