So last night saw the last episode of this season of Life On Mars. Now what am supposed to watch on Mondays? I know, there is Lost, but it’s booooooooring. I want my retro 70’s cop/time travel/maybe just in a coma tv show back. Anyways, to mark its final episode I’ve decided to list a […]
Last post, from me, on the riots. I am not embarrassed by them. I am not shamed by them. I did not take part. I did not toss bottles of urine at gardaÃ. I did not taunt gardaÃ. I did not loot shoe shops. I did not burn cars. I will never cheer on the […]
I’m not really sure why I started watching this show. The trailers made it look very poor. Some crap cop police show, only with time travel thrown in. I was half thinking it’d be The Bill meets Time Cop. Yet for some reason I tuned in. Probably because there was nothing else on on a Monday night.
And I am so glad I did. This has to be my favourite British show, in a long time, maybe ever. Though Cracker was fantastic in its day.
I have come to the conclusion that something, out there :eek: , somewhere, is conspiring to get me. Every day objects have been turned into weapons. Perhaps not of the mass destruction variety. Not even of minor destruction, but weapons of minor annoyance. And we all know how damaging minor annoyances can be. After all, […]
ISBN: 1841492736 Book 6 of Crown of Swords Feather Cloak was fertile, the only pregnant woman left among her people The first time I read King’s Dragon, the first book of this series I wasn’t all that impressed. But for some reason I reread it. And on my second reading I enjoyed it a lot […]
EDIT: Doh! Have only just realised now why the Jervis Centre was closed as I walked by it after leaving NM to catch her Luas. And Dossing Times has a good entry on the progress of the riots. Went to see I, Keano in the Olympia today. Was very enjoyable. Back in 2002 a civil […]
It is the 1950’s, and McCarthyism is rife in America as the hunt for reds under bed trundles on. In CBS Ed McMurrow begins to highlight McCarthy’s scare tactics and methods on his current affairs television show. The film is told both by the actors and by actual footage from the time. We get to […]
The Legend of Ron Burgandy Who knew the history of news readers had so much bloodshed and conflict? If you like this type of film (Wedding Crashers, Dodgeball) then you’ll love this film. Ferrell is wonderful as over the top anchorman Ron. But it is the wonderful mix of quotable phrases, stupidity and humour that […]
There is this student at work who comes up and chats to me every now and then. He studying psychology, and philosophy and all that sort of rubbish, and usually that is the sort of thing he talks about. I’m not quite sure how it happened, but basically we talk about what is consciousness, or […]
Every single day between 10 and 11 in the morning they come. The hospitality students. On a break from class. And every day they head straight for the computers. And every day I tell them to sign in. And every day they don’t, until I remind them to. We only have 4 computers. They are […]
If a computer account is set-up with no admin properties, and set so you cannot right-click on the desktop and adjust the wallpaper/screensaver etc how do you get rid of images from the desktop? I know it can be done as I deleted some pics from one of the student PCs two weeks ago, but […]
Seems like every time you turn around there is a new debate spawning across the Irish blogosphere. The latest one comes after a poll published in the Irish Examiner which states that 51% of Irish people are in favour of gay partnerships being recognised legally. And 50 of Irish people think that gay couples should […]
