Michael: Hi, my name is Michael. How may I help you?
Vic: Hi Michael. Just wondering is the Nike logo a Swoosh or a tick?
Michael: Interesting question, Vic.
Vic: Im hosting a radio show in Ireland at the moment, and its just come up
Michael: We actually call it the swoosh and, unfortunately, I don't think it's interpretive in nature.

One of my biggest gripes at the moment is the road into Cobh. Particularly the stretch when you turn right off Belvelley Bridge. Recently the cowboys rode into town again and started digging the thing up. Big fool that I am, I thought they were putting the thing back together. It turns out some people who ride the Belvelley coaster weren't happy and were asking for their money back, as the ride was no longer exciting enough. So now, its been rebuilt with even more thrilling dips, dives and tyre shredding excitement. The county council should be well proud of it, as should Cobh town council. Im seriously thinking of calling into the town hall and start handing it medals. Its possible none of the above are aware of it. Maybe they use the Arrow all the time. Maybe they have a chopper. Maybe Mercedes and BMW make exceedingly good suspension. Incidentally, if you drive an off road vehicle but never drive it off road, follow the directions above and get your 4x4 as close as it'll get to an off road situation. If you hold off until the middle of Summer you might get rain, which will give your 4x4 that off road, dirty, muddy look.
Its Confirmation and Communion season fairly soon, if not already. No doubt the little darlings are sizzling away on a sunbed as we speak. Its all about the tan darling. Speaking of Communion, I remember one of the things I bought with my Communion money was the Sas Survival Handbook. Why in the name of whoever, was I doing with a Survival Handbook. It was more than likely from watching Rambo as a child. Either way, the Survival Handbook never had the ideas that John Rambo used to sort things out. If I had been shot with an arrow or something as a kid, the Sas Survival Handbook wouldnt have thought me to set fire to the wounds. But Rambo did. So for any of us that have a need for Survival in the future, Rambo is coming back to the big screens. I came across the shot on the left this morning. In fairness, Sly looks ready to kick some Ass again. More importantly, he looks ready to teach us more survival tricks. Maybe setting fire to your hole if you get the squirts. Who knows. Either way, the new Rambo flick is under way!

I read an article this morning saying that Irelands main political parties are to spend around €10 million between them on election campaigns. This is what I dont understand! 10 mill to tell me and you the problems that are currently out there and what they'll do about it. Thats all well and good but kinda pointless really as we all know whats wrong, whats not working and so on. These problems havent just popped up when the guy with photoshop was putting the final touches to the photos for the posters and pamphlets. So, going back to a previous posting, what the F$%K have these people being doing all along! Answers on a postcard to the usual address!
The show returns to normal last night and there WILL be a Tuesday night Psychic in tow! Hopefully Vic Cast #2, the video podcast will see the light of day during the week!

Irish Airsoft Association
300 Movie here
Star Wars producer Rick McCallum interview (that I didnt have time to run) from 2 years ago here
Tuesday, March 06, 2007
Tonight on the show, in the run up to Flick It (where you could win 10 Grand) Ill be presenting a movie, as Phil did yesterday. Its from the Star Wars saga, but Im not revealing which one it is till later on. Some may be shocked! Ill also be giving away tickets to the flicks to boot. I'll be taking some more skiers down the CTB ski slope as well, all fighting for the number 1 spot on our leaderboard, in the hopes of winning themselves a ski holiday to Andorra, compliments of panaroma holidays.
By now, Im sure some of you have been prone to the local politicians pounding down the door and dropping leaflets of promises through the letterbox. We need this and we need that and Ill ensure that we get it. We need better roads etc.etc.etc. and yes, you guessed it, Im the man or woman to get it. What the F$%k? We needed all that the last time and the time before that. What did they do then? It amazes me that some of these so called public reps have the gaul to tell you that they'll be doing this and that when they said it the last time. The problems still need fixing!!!! Its like the blind leading the bling in one instance! When these people come to your door, put it to em. Ask the tough questions. Ask WHY things havent been done! Most importantly though, do vote!
The Cameraman Joke
The Smiths were unable to conceive children and decided to use a surrogate
father to start their family. On the day the surrogate father was to
arrive, Mr. Smith kissed his wife and said, "I'm off. The man should be
here soon" Half an hour later, just by chance a door-to-door baby
photographer rang the doorbell, hoping to make a sale.
"Good morning, madam. I've come to...."
"Oh, no need to explain. I've been expecting you," Mrs. Smith cut in.
"Really?" the photographer asked. "Well, good. I've made a speciality of
"That's what my husband and I had hoped. Please come in and have a seat"
After a moment, she asked, blushing, "Well, where do we start?"
"Leave everything to me. I usually try two in the bathtub, one on the
couch and perhaps a couple on the bed. Sometimes the living room floor is
fun too; you can really spread out!"
"Bathtub, living room floor? No wonder it didn't work for Harry and me"
"Well, madam, none of us can guarantee a good one every time. But, if we
try several different positions and I shoot from six or seven different
angles, I'm sure you'll be pleased with the results"
"My, that's a lot of....." gasped Mrs. Smith.
"Madam, in my line of work, a man must take his time. I'd love to be in
and out in five minutes, but you'd be disappointed with that, I'm sure"
"Don't I know it," Mrs. Smith said quietly.
The photographer opened his briefcase and pulled out a portfolio of his

"Oh my God!" Mrs. Smith exclaimed, tugging at her handkerchief.
"And these twins turned out exceptionally well, when you consider their
mother was so difficult to work with"
"She was difficult?" asked Mrs. Smith.
"Yes, I'm afraid so. I finally had to take her to
done right. People were crowding around four and five deep, pushing to get
a good look"
"Four and five deep?" asked Mrs. Smith, eyes widened in amazement.
"Yes," the photographer said, "And for more than three hours too. The
mother was constantly squealing and yelling. I could hardly concentrate.
Then darkness approached and I began to rush my shots. Finally, when the
squirrels began nibbling on my equipment, I just packed it all in."
Mrs. Smith leaned forward. "You mean squirrels actually chewed on your,
"That's right. Well, madam, if you're ready, I'll set up my tripod so we
can get to work."
"Oh yes, I have to use a tripod to rest my Canon on. It's much too big for
me to hold for very long. Madam? Madam? ....... Good Lord, she's
