Good morning, Cbz and all you miscreants. First of all, ABQ, they are referred to as the "Pipes", most assuredly not "the bags". I loved the clip. I've never seen flames as part of a piper's performance. BTW, the tune was a thing called "Black Bear" which is traditionally played as a victory march.
Secondly, I'm a drummer, not a piper, so I don't have to spend ridiculous amounts of time trying to get those bloody pipes in tune. Every time there's any variation in temperature, humidity, wind direction, or if the Pipe Major farts, the pipes have to be re-tuned. We drummers just wait and share a flask of the single malt, or a PBR, or anything else, for that matter until the pipes are tuned or until the SPCA is called.
Bob, a tue Scotsman wears nothing but shoes and socks under his kilt, but I'm Canadian, so no danger of terrifying the womenfolk. As for shaving my head, there's not much left on top , so I'll just have to focus on keeping the edges trimmed.
With that Piper's image burned firmly into my brain, I will wish you all a great day.
