He played by flipping peanuts to squirrels

Finally found the new Fred Vargas book out in a proper size. I hate the over large paperback. Trade size or whatever. So awkward so I put off buying Wash this blood clean from my hands until now. It still isn’t as neat as Seeking whom he may devour but it’ll do. I also bought […]

You sir, are a silk stocking full of shit!

Look, look, Sharpe will be back on our screens this year. Mmmmm. Sean Bean. Went up home to Sligeach on Fri. Twas de gasúr’s birthday recently so brought pressies with me, which he got on Sun and much enjoyed. Bob the Builder = success with 2 year old. On Sat I left Sligo and headed […]

I am legend [based on the book]

After the end of the world as we know it Robert Neville lives in New York. All alone apart from his dog, Sam, he drives around hunting deer, chatting to mannequins and going through the stock of a local video store. He also makes sure to be home and locked away by the time night comes. Because at night the rest of the survivors come out. And they aren’t so friendly.

Who knows. More importantly […]

Sometimes evil drives a minivan

Desperate Housewives made it back onto our screens last night. RTE even showed a special “catch-up” episode beforehand. Just in case any of us had forgotten the crazy wackiness that goes on on Wisteria Lane. And so I would just like to say that I hate and despise Susan Mayer. She is just so pathetic […]

The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford [based on the book]

I loved this film.

I loved everything about it. The acting was brilliant. The way the story unfolded. The narration. The casting. The scenery. The cinematography. The soundtrack. Everything was just great. Best film I’ve seen this year. Which’d be a higher compliment if this wasn’t the first film I’ve been to see so far this year. But I’m guessing it’ll be up on the top ten list by the end of 2008.
