Well after bringing up the depressing headlines and news stories concerning the middle east, I left work this evening and just as I left the building it started to rain. First time I’ve had to walk in the rain for well over a month. And I actually missed. Didn’t even wait under cover at the […]

TV has been a tad on the depressing side recently. And I don’t mean the boring-ness of Lost, but actual real life programmes. Not the “moan at the stupidity of reality-tv” but the real stories that have been floating about. First there was the BBC’s Execution of a teenage girl, about a 16 year old […]
Do you remember Eerie Indiana? Do you? With the kids being preserved in tubberware lunchboxes? And the ability to understand the canine plot to take over the world cause of dental-ware? I loved that show. And I’m really hoping that my memory isn’t lying to me cause I’ve just gone and bought it. But while […]
It is 2054, Paris and a young woman has just been kidnapped. Karas, a police captain specialising in kidnapping is charged to find her, and to find her alive. The company she works for, Avalon, are very insistent that this researcher be found. But if I’m honest the plot isn’t really all that interesting. Run […]
When you are a child, and you’re poor, and you live next to other people who are poor, you never think of yourself as being poor.
Around a month ago I read an entry on Omaniblog about this book, up until then I hadn’t even known that George Hook had a book out. But that post caught my attention. George Hook is probably best known in Ireland for his rugby punditry. Together with Brent Pope and Tom McGurk, he analyses rugby for RTE in an entertaining, honest, blunt manner. He also has a radio show, but I’m not big on the radio so haven’t heard him enough to comment on that. In many ways I suppose he is the Eamonn Dunphy of the rugby world.
But I know him primarily from his rugby comments, and his constant promises that Munster will lose, and that the likes of Stringer shouldn’t be playing. I disagree with him, but am well aware that he is very knowledgeable about the game. And in an entertaining way.
Last episode of season 2 of Lost was on last night. And can I just say that this has to be the most pointless telly watching I have ever done. I don’t like the characters. Even Charlie is annoying at this stage. I despise Jack with his “leadership issues”. Kate is a moany cow who […]

The Premiership hasn’t quite started up yet, but you can still pick a team over at theFantasy Permiership. And if you do, you may as well join my league, by entering the following code: 28597-30580
This year I will play throughout the season. I will. Not like last year when I sorta got a little disinterested half way through.
Also I haven’t forgotten about LunaNina and our weekly associations game, but the site is down, so we can’t play along. Not yet anyway.
I had intended to write a really witty and entertaining post on the difference between the “Spray More, Get More” ad campaign from Lynx and the Impulse Tease ad. Cause the difference seems to suggest that all men want is to be sexified. While all women want is to be chased, but not caught. Cause […]
There is very little plot to this film. It all revolves around Nansal, a six year old girl, who while out looking for dung to fuel a fire comes across a puppy. And like many other young children she wants to keep him. But her father thinks he may bring the wolves down on his […]
Took me long enough, but I finally managed to catch POTC2, and despite loving the first one I have to say that this just isn’t that great. Yes it has wonderful bits of Jack Sparrow-ness, but overall it is too long and too silly to really entertain. Of course it does suffer because the story […]
ISBN: 0575077980 – Infinity Plus review January 2020 On this soft night I followed the Moren River valley, flying back to the Castle, hearing the chimes of clock towers in the Plainslands villages as I passed high above. I really enjoyed the first in this ‘verse, The Year of Our War, and while I didn’t […]
Superman has never really been a superhero that I was a fan of. Sure, he is faster than a speeding bullet and has saved the world on numerous times, but I’ve just never had a grÃ¡ for him. So I wasn’t all that fussed about this film, apart from the fact that is took Singer […]
