Things aren’t really going to well for Vorenus, are they? Dreaming about his wife’s suicide/attempt to distract Vorenus from killing her son. Waking up knowing that it is all true. Becoming a “son of hades” Being a general grump, although I suppose thinking that your kids are dead and knowing that you are the reason you wife is dead, notRead more

In this country of the cute hoor, misleading the DÃ¡il or Seanad is considered little more than a minor stroke
An asylum seeker who came to Ireland in 2000, Mr Adebari mused that while he was now Portlaoise’s first citizen, he was not yet an Irish citizen.
“Are you telling us you’re not legal,” Mr Aird interrupted, at which the whole public gallery erupted in laughter.
Wow, can you believe that I’ve been doing this Thursday Thirteen stuff for 23 weeks now? I was wondering what to do for this week’s Thursday Thirteen but then I got an email from Carl, linking to this post and providing perfect inspiration. So this T13 is a couple of responses to that post. And yes, I know, I shouldn’tRead more
If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary-wise; what it is it wouldn’t be, and what it wouldn’t be, it would.
Many things to be done today. Review of A Midummer Night’s Dream. The reading of blogs. the leaving the comments on the blogs. the reading of emails. the replying to emails. the inane surfing. and the work. But I can’t be arsed. The head is disconnected from the world for some reason today. Stuff is happening, I’m pretty sure ofRead more

yet another banner nicked from Samulli Well after last week’s zombie excitement, we’re back to the more usual T13 fun, these are just 13 random things that popped into my head. I wish my chair at work was a different size. Actually it is probably the table and ‘puter that is the problem. Sorry chair. Not really ergonomically designed atRead more
Rome 2.01 Passover dir. by Timothy Van Patten
Rome returns.:”(Yay!)”: Starting up just where last season left off, with the death of Caesar:”(poor old Julius.)”:. Cue plenty of threats and plenty of political scrambling as the implications become clear. Honesty didn’t Servilia even think about the aftermath? I guess not, too tied up in the “jealous scorned woman role”. Anthony isn’t best pleased, as you might suppose. Especially when that dog Quintus and his posse try to kill him. He escapes, and ends up in Atia’s house making plans to escape to the North, and of course then return in order to eat the livers of his enemies:”(Maybe he said that later, Im not quite sure, but the threat stands either way)”:. Don’t you just love Anthony’s threats:”(and just Anthony in general. Complete and utter bastard, yes, but still.)”:?Read more
You ain’t so bad, you ain’t so bad, you ain’t nothin’. C’mon, champ, hit me in the face! My mom hits harder than you!
I pity the fool who didn’t turn on Sky Two last night, cause that classic movie was on, Rocky III and really, who doesn’t love Rocky. Okay, so I actually only watched the last 30 minutes of it. And I was also internetting at the same time, so maybe watching isn’t really the most accurate description. Nevertheless it was onRead more
Via Damien: Also a bit of a telly round up: Prison Break is back on RTE 2. Course I’ve been watching Heroes on SciFiUk at that particular time so haven’t been watching it. But thanks to the joys of d’internet I got to watch it last night. I wasn’t overly impressed Hopefully I’ll be more entertained when Rome makes itsRead more
I’m waiting for episode 22 of Heroes to load up so I can watch it. Almost at an end now. Oooooh. But while I’m waiting I thought I may as well show you what I picked up today in my quick stop in Chapters. Item the first: A Game of Thrones by George R.R. Martin. I’ve heard many great thingsRead more
Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer [based on characters created] by Jack Kirby, Stan Lee dir. by Tim Story
This was pants. Complete pants. Not even bad enough to be enjoyed. Harsh? Maybe, but true. I wasn’t overly fond of the first film but it did the job of light entertainment. This one though was boring. An unforgivable flaw in an action-hero flick. Everything was ultra predictable, and nothing sparkled. Not even McMahon as the ebil Von Doom. AndRead more
This is based on the true story of a serial killer in the 1970’s in California who highlighted his murders with cryptic letters to newspapers. He killed at random, and called himself The Zodiac, and wrote his letters in a code. He also often sent bloodstained items of clothes along with these letters as a sort of proof. He was never caught. Robert Graysmith was working as a cartoonist at one of the newspapers where the letters arrived, and became caught up in the case. The film is based on his book of the events of the time.Read more
