Was flicking around and came across an episode of featuring Mr. Crocodile Hunter, Steve Irwin. He was in Sumatra, having a great time with the elephants and occasionally harassing a snake. You can’t watch any of his shows without realising how passionate he was about animals, and what a good time he had, even when it turned sad, like with

You know the old story; Boy meets girl. Boy falls in love with girl. Something gets in the way of true love, but they over come it to live happily ever after? Well, I suppose this fills all those clichés only as well as the teen angst we get zombies and gore. Nathan is good friends with Jessica but he

Edited to add: The Daemon quiz thing is no longer being hosted, so I guess this title no longer makes any sense Also, the idea of a blog by Eamonn Dunphy is a little scary. Meanwhile them across the water are discussing whether or not some dude should go to war. I know, I know, the war is already over

Almost forgot about this, for some reason I thought yesterday was Tuesday?! Anyways, this week’s list of thirteen is … totally random I’ve discovered why Battlestar Galactica is bugging me. It is all about its potential, because it has so much, it could be a really great show. But it isn’t. Yes it is a fairly decent one that I’ll

The blame game

How private should private be, and who can ever possibly take it upon themselves to turn the private public? We are living in a precarious time, a time when both spheres are bleeding into each other and the line of demarcation is wavering. There is great potential here. Either we will become a society who ostracizes even more violently those who are different from us, suspect of every quiet student who doesn’t dress like the rest, suspicious of any husband or wife who doesn’t drag his or her child to every Saturday soccer game, or maybe, just maybe, we’ll become a society responsible to something greater than ourselves

In 1984 in East Germany the secret police, or Stasi were everywhere, watching everything. This film details the activities of one officer, Wiesler, as he monitored a popular playwright. Wiesler doesn’t believe that Dreyman could possibly be as pro the party as he makes out. Too arrogant. So he suggests keeping him under surveillance, just in case. His superior officer doesn’t agree, at first, but then Minister Bruno Hempf mentions that perhaps he isn’t such a fan, and that perhaps Dreyman isn’t a favourite. It turns out that Hempf is more than interested in Dreyman’s girlfriend, the actress Christa-Maria Sieland, and so would like nothing better than to remove his rival by having him arrested and taken away.

Heading back up to Sligo again this evening. The reason being, I’ve gotta collect my new laptop. A Dell Inspiron 6400. But before I go, some good news. I don’t have “the consumption” I know, I know, you’re all thinking well yes. That is good news, but not particularly newsworthy, only it is. On accounts in individuals in the college
