Why hello! It's day five of what critics are now calling the greatest and most bold takeover of a website in recent history. I'm Shambles Miller, and today I present you with both a celebration and a competition. The year is nearly over and pundits are in agreement that 2013 has been the year of the selfie. It's become acceptable to post photos of yourself online as long as you use that ubiquitous word. 'Selfie' has entered the dictionary. Barack Obama just took one at a funeral (sort of). The future is as bright and full of wonder as it is dark and terrifying to behold.
|It's also a bit debonair. Hello.|
Here at Scottish Fiction, I've brought together a collection of selfies from a number of Scottish bands and artists for your visual delectation. You're quite right though, well remembered: this is also a competition. I did say that. The winner will be chosen in secret by a guest judge and revealed tomorrow. But for now, I present your competitors...
|He's on a boat motherfucker, take a look at him.|
Julia Doogan (Julia and the Doogans)
|Channelling Miley Cyrus?|
Niall McCamley (The Spook School)
|He's a good egg, but will he crack under the pressure?|
|David Officer (Daemons)|
|David is also a photographer and claims that this is his best side.|
|Chris McKeown (Halo Tora)|
|Limmy could learn a thing or two from this man's face.|
|Neil Wilson (Scottish Fiction)|
|Neil might not be a musician, but he owns the place, so he can do what he wants amigo.|
|James Mackenzie (Love Civilian)|
|Glasses. Beard. Mad hat. High-vis jacket. A bold choice to be sure.|
|Wait, is this a selfie competition or a beard competition?|
|Opting for a classic selfie here.|
|Campfires in Winter|
|Recreating their Twitter avatar in selfie form. Inspired.|
|Jamie Sturt (Atlas: Empire, This Silent Forest)|
|Sporting a Will Selfie.|
Well there you have it folks! Who are you rooting for? Which selfie is your favourite? Is this all just a pointless charade? Let me know in the comments below and be sure to come back tomorrow to find who the winner is, and to see what I have in store for the last day of my Scottish Fiction Takeover!
