The one with....

Righto, no excuses this time round! Not that I have any either! Its been another mad couple of days in the land of yours truly! Probably the most bizarre thing thats happened is the cut a dog out of a couch morning, that I endured on Tuesday!

We have one of those mini couches for the lads, and Bilbo has a habit of making love to it and Gus has a habit of eating it. So after a few weeks of serious sofa shagging and extreme eating, disaster struck! I got up early the other morning to discover the couch overturned and Biblo half sitting underneath. Nothing unusual there, except he managed to get his leg embedded and wrapped up in part of the eaten material. I tried to unravel it, but twas on too tight. So he decided twud be a good time to take a bit outta me hand! Finding the sharpest knife in the kitchen I got back down on all fours and the bastard tried to eat the knife and me hand...again! I suppose I understood and eventually cut him out of the couch! I know its not exactly rock 'n roll, but when you think about it, it kinda is! Dog humping, Sharp knives, Snarling dogs embedded in a mini couch all I was short was a few hookers! Afterwards I went upstairs and threw a portable out the window!

Also on Tuesday, I showed my face at the Cork Drug Awareness week in the Rochestown Park, to give a quick chat to hundreds of students! By all accounts it went down very well with lots of people praising my speech! I suppose when people here about young girls bombed outta their mind and dirty old men (literally) molesting them, it hits home!

Snatch in the house tonight by the way!

The one with an update...amazingly!

A combination of lack of time and laziness is my excuse, but down to business!

The Virginia Tech shootings have been making the news and will be making the news for quite some time to come. A very, very sad day and obviously lots of people over here have been touched by it. Our thoughts are with the families and friends who have been affected by this. The one thing about this tragedy that has started to get on my wick, as well as others is the people trying to get their 30 seconds of fame! Dr. Phil for one, not that he needs any more fame. Jack Thompson is another. Again, he doesn't really need any more fame. These individuals were very quick off the mark to blame videogames for the tragedy. Yet were videogames found in Cho Seung Hui's dorm, nope! Past high school tragedys have had the same instances. Its videogames! A multitude of violent incidents around the world are all attributed to videogames. Cho Seung Hui was messed up! Mental problems etc.etc. But for these "high profile" public figures to come out and try and get their pound of flesh with these inaccurate facts is ludicrous. They would be better of trying to figure out the downfall of the mental health system or why nobody ever picked the many warning signs that people seem to be jumping all over in the media. While I accept the Cho Seung Hui played Counterstrike in his earlier days, thats like saying anyone whos a drug addict played PacMan in their younger days. PacMan spent his time munching pills and for any junkees outhere, don't blame society or whatever you want, just blame PacMan.

Something else thats annoying me at the moment is the amount of bullshit newsletters smashing through the letter box every five minutes. You might think "Ah but sure thats probably the regular newsletter from the local gardening club or whatever" You would be wrong Im afraid. Its from a bunch of politicians, from all the parties, who obviously think its a great idea to try and capture a few votes. In theory it probably is, provided these newsletters come through the door week in, week out. But they dont, do they? NAH! I really wonder where their brains are located, because its certainly not in their head! Weeks to go to an election, they decide to type up any piece of shit they can manage, print it and horse it through your letterbox. Well heres my suggestion! The ones that have a regular newsletter, week in - week out, well talk to them! The ones that are just trying to capitalize on the election by firing out measly newsletters at the last minute, tell them the hounds have been released and to "F£$ Off" before their bits and bobs are shredded to a bloody pulp! Its driving me absolutely mad that these fly by knights have the audacity to think people are stupid enough to fall for this. One cheap ass newsletter! Its like the long lost family member who only shows up when they want money! That said, fair play to the politicians who do have a regular newsletter, but for the other cowboys who feel they have to get one out as well, as time is running out, get a life! Im looking forward to the ones knocking on my door in particular the ones who have dropped off their single newsletter! Im gonna be like an old hillbilly man, rifle in hand on a rockin chair! They will be runinn'! At this stage, with the state of the place in Cobh, in particular the road and a list of other things I wont start ranting on, my attitude is "Fix it now and Ill vote for ya next time"

............that feels a bit better. No coffee involved or anything! Ill leave the update with a few pieces of cheeriness....Oh yeah, belated b-day greetings to the Simpsons as well

Heres something thats proving a little bit more popular that my Vic-Cast serious

The one with sore fingers!

In over 25 years of playing video games, today is probably the first time I managed to nearly remove the skin off me fingers. I picked up Guitar Hero II for the Xbox 360 this morning and rocked out for nearly 6 hours! My first time ever playing "one of them geetar" games and Im impressed! Sweet Child O Mine never sounded so good!

If the blog isnt updated in a few days (Tell us something we dont know) at least there now is a legit excuse, me fingers will have a bloody mess!

The one about the next Late Night Interview

Sunday night!

The one with, ah who cares! (Actually this one aint bad)

I know its a been a while, no one would have thought it would take this long, but keep pushing....constipation, not a nice thing! The blog has been like a bout of back passage persistence lately. Its there, but nothings going on. Well bar, Vic Cast #3. Im hoping to have #4 up in time for the weekend! That said, its unlikely.

Easter was Easter. It was nice to have 2 nights off and the feedback has been very good from Sunday and Mondays shows. Its just a pity the electric window in the car decided it had enough of living and it died in the DOWN position. So that was more or less the end of Monday for me. Bin liners and car guarding duty. I don't get the buzz about Easter. Whatever about the religious aspect, why cant people survive one day without a pub, ie Good Friday. Thursday evening I witnessed (sounds ominous doesn't it) a few ould Bridys with shopping trolleys buckling under the weight of slabs of booze. Im not being a killjoy or anything, but one Bridy had enough in the trolley to last her till next Easter. Before anyone says house party, she had enough drink to get at least 5000 people bladdered up. Maybe she was holding a conference or something.

Keeping with Easter, why isnt Willie Wonka on the TV. I dont buy into the whole "Its a Xmas Tradition" as some people were texting in last night. Willie Wonka didnt have a Turkey and Ham factory, where Oompa Lumpas spent their days lobbing the heads off plump birds or getting joints of ham out of Ms Piggy. I can see it now

Oompa Lumpa "Here...Willie, we're outta them ever lasting Turkeys"
Willie Wonka "Again!!!!! for crying out loud. Which one of you little green shits is stealing my ever lasting turkeys.

So it brings up the question, why isn't Wonka on at Easter? Wouldn't it be much more appropriate? All its missing is a few Easter bunnys and to keep the mass going public happy, they could even throw in Jesus, maybe giving tours on Wonkas boat. Either way, Willie doesnt belong on the TV at Christmas, not anymore. At the end of the day (thanks Roy) no TV Network is showing Watership down on Easter Sunday. Are they? Of course not, it wouldnt be worth the complaints from parents giving out as to why all the Easter bunnys are getting their egg making paws blown off.
No doubt somewhere around the country little Johnny or Mary spent Easter Sunday bawling their eyes out, because Daddy decided to go out and blow the head off the Easter Bunny. And then fire it into a pot and serve it up for dinner.
We're all faithless by the way too. Article in one of the tabloids yesterday stating that 15-24 year olds know little or nothing about their religion. I'm out of that age bracket, by a year or 2 and everything Ive been thought is not even a distant memory. I'm not a regular mass goer, Funerals, Weddings and the odd Christening are about it.. I don't get the whole thing to be honest. Maybe it was a case of you HAVE TO go when you were young. Ive never like the words "HAVE TO". But its horses for courses and all that. If its what YOU want, then great. YOU do what YOU want, not what someone else wants. Kids should be given a choice after a certain age. Maybe then Saturday night or Sunday morning wouldnt be such an ordeal! I was dragged kicking and screaming. In my mind Ghosts n Goblins was all the religion I needed.

Thats about it till next month, only kidding. Laters! And nice waaannn for dropping by!
