Here we go again

I need a good dose of epsom salts to keep this blog regular. Truth be told, Im getting lazy in me ould age and Im really busy with the show to boot! The countdown begins for the Xbox 360. I have one preordered for quite some time now, but I have been told I may not get it on the release date (Friday). This will annoy seven bells of shit outta me, considering I was told "€20 deposit guarantees your console". Well all Ill say is we'll have a "special" Xbox 360 show next week if I dont get it.

Got to see Mr and Mrs Smith over the weekend. While its not great, its not shite either. 5 / 10

The decision on a Xmas tree has been made, thankfully. After much roaring and shouting we're going to buy a decent artificial one. At least it wont stink the house up and fall apart, well not until it has to be squeezed into that attic. Thats it for now, me brain is bothered (more than usual) so I wont hold ye up any more.

Xmas lights on the show tonight!

I was like Tom Cruise himself over the weekend, with one exception. He was running away from the Aliens, while I was chasing them. All the video shops kept the release date for War of the Worlds, which suprised me to be fair. Normally I get most of my DVDs from the states, but some titles recently are coming out here first.

You know your getting old when your in of a Friday night waiting to see whats on the Late Late and now you know your sad running around the place after a feckin DVD.

As for our caller Jane who needed a bit of help, from Thursday nights show I will be announcing in just under 30 minutes what we will be doing.

Thats it for now kiddie winks. Laters

Ok, Im gonna keep this short. Hopefully by Sunday or Monday at the very latest I will be able to announce what we can do for one of our callers last night. I was blown away by the genrosity of Red FM listeners last night. Absoultely amazing. Im not sure what we can do yet, as I have to get the go ahead from the head honchos but one of the main suggestions last night was to open a bank account and people can lodge money into that.

So thank YOU for all your support and genorisity. Heres hoping by this time next week we can ALL bring a little happiness to someone who is so, so deserving.

If ANYONE thinks they can help out this situation with ANYTHING, please email me over the weekend

Is there much point apologising, for the delay in updating. Probably not! To those of you whos lives were deeply affected by this delay, I do apologise. Its been another busy ol week. Obviously with Risteard on holidays for a few days, theres alot more to do. I got to take in Broken Flowers over the weekend. Nice film, enjoyable and of course it has Bill Murray....not to mention a bit of nudity. I quote from a friend of mine who said "I was in the cinema with me oul doll boy, and when the lolita one came out in the buff, I nearly blow me load in me pants" Its a true quote, but I wont go naming and shaming.

Every year I get excited about a few movies. This year has been Star Wars Episode III, War of the Worlds and something that makes Christmas worth while...Peter Jacksons King Kong. I dont know how many times Ive watched the new trailer, but it is bordering on sad. It does look spectacular and Im hoping they'll be some preview in Dublin before it comes out, ala Star Wars 3. Whatever about the big gorilla, we havent had dinosaurs running around eating and trampelling since Speilberg brough them to life with the Jurassic Park trilogy. I guess Im a sucker for big special effects movies.

Im also remotely thrilled that ITV4 has gone up on Sky. For the first time in years, The Late Show with David Letterman will be back on Irish TV. Writing this Im thinking to myself "God what kind of Sad bastard are ya". Keeping with TV, my Sopranos addiction is growing stronger. I ordered the first 3 seasons on DVD from Australia, and postal strike depending they should be here during the week.

Ive had a couple of emails regarding and its back up and running as of this morning. The domain was just being renewed. Im also finished Blockbuster, very good book all about! Granted the type was a bit hard on the eyes. As soon as thats finished, Ive got Heres Johnny to get through!

So thats it, back to the grind stone...the Top 5 has yet to be wrote and the dishwasher must be unloaded. The joys of it!!!

Another Halloween over. Unlike last year, we had plenty of little monsters breaking the door down. Its amazing the look on their face when you say Trick. Maybe its me just been me, but I got a kick out of it last night. Granted, all little monsters and 2 batman got a good oul munch! Halloween is one of the few nights of the year, actually its the only night of the year that I can get away with getting the missus to watch a scary movie. Her sister called over last night, so it was double the screaming. Rated 15s, The Ring Two was the DVD of choice last night. Im lucky to be alive at all. With enough jumping and screaming, it felt like a Westlife concert, to be fair to the two ladies I nearly shit me pants on more than one occasion. Speaking of shit, we watched Are We There Yet after the horror onslaught!

As most of you know, I collect DVDs and am a big Star Wars fan. I buy most of my DVDs online, and from one or two sites in particular, who send the DVDs as they get them in stock. So, I broke the usual Star Wars routine (which involves driving around every video shop in the land, and I always find one that breaks the release date) and ordered it online, thinking Id have it a week before. The force certainly wasnt with me on this one. It only arrived in the door this morning, TYPICAL. My cravings would not stop, and on Saturday night I rented the damn thing. Saturday was a bad day, we had our annual Halloween bash on the Friday night and Saturday as mentioned, was a bad, bad, bad day!

Theres not much else going on right now, so check the show tonight!! Follow up to Halloween violence and the likes!!!
