After Work Pints

Last Friday I was informed that I "had a head on me like a kid's TV presenter" and that I should've been on Bosco. Which I was pretty happy with, considering how badly a statement from a stranger that begins with "D'ya know what you're like.." can go. This observation was from a random guy called Deckie who had struck up a conversation with the Bear outside The Stag's Head, solely based on the fact that he too was a big beardy long haired man. In fairness to him, Random Deckie provided us with a good three and a half pints worth of rants, stories and shenanigans. He'd been out since two o'clock the previous day. I have no idea what was keeping him going but it made for some damn funny conversation. Especially the story about how he went to college with a guy whose mother was the voice of Bosco and a rant that involved the phrase "it'd be like sucking off Robocop".

I just wish I could remember what that one was about.

Kitty Galore

A while ago, I struck retro red anchor motherflippin' GOLD whilst charity shop shopping with the Bear. And I do believe I've done it again. Behold my lastest charity shop bargain, the sixties Bond girl wondergĂșna!

I was actually supposed to be chopping and peeling various vegetables for dinner in the time I was doing this, but decided this was much more fun.

And guess how much my quite short but pretty deadly new dress cost?

€2.50

That's right, two and a half eurobucks. Suck on that, recession.

Burninating The Peasants

A while ago VoodooLady posted this freaky little video which cracked me up a ridiculous amount in college. It reminded me of another one I loved around the same time. Oh Trog Dor. Let's be friends.

Fire in the Disco


One night back in November, after a few pints in The Stag's Head, the Bear and I sang (I use this term most vaguely for myself) backing vocals for The Dead Flags in a studio in Temple Bar. Followed by more pints in The Stag's Head. The Bear had been asked along to the studio because he's rather loud you see and would count for approximately 2-3 regular people noise-wise. I went along because I happened to be there at the time and figured if there was ever a way to get a credit on the back of an album this was probably a good one.

Anyway.

THIS RIGHT HERE is the new single Let's Start A Fire Tonight, which features me, the Bear and a group of people who can actually sing, providing vocals of the backing variety. The album is out on 9th April. Expect blatant and frankly shameless plugging of it when the time comes.

Oh yes.

Coco Pops


These are from back in January, but just LOOK at the gorgeousness! Burlesque badass Miss Dirty Martini was featured in V Magazine's Size Issue running riot around the Chanel fashion studio in Paris and doesn't she just look like the best craic ever?




Bombshell!

I dunno.. i... am well i... ????? you decide



Watch this with the sound down it's even funnier! The suit is hanging off him! The mom is throwing some serious shapes in the background as well!

It's On!

Ok so here are a few more lyrics for ye to ponder over and guess what songs they are from!

Song A (should be easy peasy to start)
"Working hard to get my fill Everybody wants a thrill Paying anything to roll the dice Just one more time"

Song b
The first kick I took was when I hit the ground You end up like a dog that's been beat too much Till you spend half your life just covering up

Song C
I wanna take this further than the dancefloor I ain't forceful but I'm still hardcore You're gonna give me everything I ask for

I have one rule

NO GOOGLE!


I Mean it...

Proceed

It's On!

Ok so here are a few lyrics for ye to ponder over and guess what songs they are from.

Song A (should be easy peasy to start)
"Racing on the thunder end rising with the heat It's gonna take a superman to sweep me off my feet"

Song B
I will be king And you You will be queen Though nothing will Drive them away

Song C (a little harder but everyone know's this song)
"When routine bites hard, And ambitions are low. And resentment rides high, But emotions won't grow"


I have one rule

NO GOOGLE!


I Mean it...


Hey you stop that! i see you on the internet.

Proceed.

(stop it!)

Fuck You Very Much, Ticketmaster


They're both strangely yet super attractive in their own way. They crack me up like no man's business. Let's face it, they're pretty downright fantastic. (Albi the Racist Dragon, anyone?)

They appear to have sold out two Dublin shows in the Olympia in less than three minutes. Thanks a bunch to Ticketmaster for the unnecessarily confusing and increasingly illegible security checks. Also a big shout out to the Master of Tickets for emailing me an ad for "Get Me In!", mere minutes after nine o'clock. Apparently it's their other company where "fans" (I use this word with unrestrained sarcasm and venom) can buy and most importantly sell tickets to major events. Seeing as the ticketmaster.ie site was proving to be useless in my quest for a humble two tickets, I chanced this other site, thinking "Well, it's Ticketmaster right? They'll hardly be allowed to screw you completely on the price, cos it's probably all monitored and whatnot, RIGHT?"

Wrong.

At seven minutes past nine, some amoral cunt has got twelve, count 'em, TWELVE tickets in two of the Circle rows. Have a look.

In sterling. For more than twice the price. And this "Get Me In!" pile of bullshit has the absolute fucking cheek to use this as a tagline.


Oh right, I get it. When you say true fans you mean evil, money grabbing, repulsive, greedy fuckbags who want to cash in on ACTUAL fans' desperation for tickets and screw us in the process.

Right, glad you cleared that up for me.


***

Edit: According to MCD.ie they sold out in twenty seconds. Twenty effing seconds like. I fail to see how anybody could have managed to get tickets apart from the presale. Still raging.

She Works Haaard For The Money

So I've only gone and got myself a job.

That's right, a JOB! Fancy that!

Despite the fact that an hour before the interview I managed to get trapped in a dress in a Penney's changing room in a panicked I-need-a-different-outfit-because-the-one-I-was-going-to-wear-is-actually-WAY-too-short situation. That'll teach me to live in torn jeans and dresses that turn out to have much too high a hemline. When I finally figured out that the zip had only gone down halfway I managed to free myself from my floaty floral prison, buy the damn thing and make myself look as presentable as I could manage. Armed with insider information that the organisation I was to be interviewed by loved the Obama campaign, off I went on my nervous way.

This is the flowery trap I got myself in.
We've since become friends and I quite like it now.
(I don't actually have a giant Hello Kitty head in real life. Not all the time anyway.)

I met the Bear for lunch right afterwards and tried to relay what they had asked me and what I had said.

I had no idea.

All I did know was that I rambled like fuck on some answers and praised the bejaysus out of the Obama campaign design, retrospectively hoping that I hadn't gone all Randy Marsh on their asses.

CHAAANGE!
(This is actually hilarious if you've seen the Obama episode of South Park. Really.)

Anyway I somehow managed to pull it off and am now jobsharing with another designer, leaving me with 2-3 days off a week during which I can watch a fuckload of Murder She Wrote, thanks to the witchcraft contained in the digital tv recording box we now have.

Series link?

Why yes. Yes in-motherfucking-deed.

Everything ok there Paul?

YEAAAAAAAAAA!!!!



This shot was taken directly after Paul's divorce papers were signed.

Home and Away (What really happened)

Redeemed (just)


About two weeks ago I reviewed the god awful Leap Year and I basically found myself hating (ie wanting to kill) the actors in it. However since then I found this little article. So Matthew Goode thought the same about the film, fair play your honesty is refreshing and good on ya for saying it was turd of a film! You have redeemed yourself somewhat, however you did still make the film so shame on you still.
