The one with Kobe Bryant, a pool and snakes!

At least theres no elderly hand jobs in this one!!!!

The one with old folks in a doorway

Yesterday, I didnt get the chance for a dinnr at home, which is a regular occurance. Normally I do with out, but last night I could have ate the back legs off a pony. So, resisting the temptation to order in, I opt for the get something on the way home idea. I drive to Hillbillies on McCurtain St and order. The place is fairly busy with many elderly folk chowing down on breasts n buns and whatever else wont choke them or break their teeth. One nice couple finished up as I was waiting for my order and walked out. The "dude" was pushing into his 70's and his oul doll was not far behind him.

As I walked out with the bag of late night dinner, I spot the 2 who had just left canoodling in a doorway, more or less next door. Its rare I see an elderly couple showing affection with tongues flapping around. On further inspection, well it was quite obvious to see, herself was giving yer man a handjob. Again, she must have been 67-68 and she was pulling him like a plough. I got into the car, after losing my appetite and they were still going strong. The only thing I was worried about was the weather. The doorway wasnt exactly good shelter for the spitty rain that was falling. I was going to offer them the back seat of the car, but my back seat is fairly low and I figured they would never get out or get stuck and require a crane and an ambulance by the end of it. So I drove home!

Im not easily shocked and this didnt really shock me to be honest. And its one of the rarer sights Ive ever seen in person. The internet doesnt count!!!!! So hats off to the pensioners for some public action, but the disgusting thing was no-one stopped and offered to hold an umbrella over them. If I had one in the car, I would have offered but I didnt!

Enjoy the rest of your lunch or dinner!

The one with a Crystal Skull and some bloke called Indy

My memory isn't good and my maths is worse, but the last time I saw an Indiana Jones flick in the cinema was when I was sprouting hairs in places where; I didn't have any books to explain what they were. Either way, I was a little bit skeptical of the new Indy flick, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. The trailers looked great, Ford looked superb as Indy, what could go wrong? 19 years is along time for movie series to wait for another episode and inevitably these kinds of flick never, ever live up to the massive Internet hype machine. Its impossible. Theres more chance of Victoria Beckham drinking a gallon of chip fat!!!!! Theres more chance that Paris Hilton will become a member of Mensa!!!! Feck, theres more chance of the Cloverfield monster being dead!!!!I am and always will be a huge fan of Lucas and Spielberg, these feens moulded a part of my childhood as they did for many of you. So I knew it was going to be good, but not sure how good it could be. Myself and Ger arrived in Mahon Point for the 11.45pm showing Saturday night, and strolled into a fairly quiet screen 1. Not a good sign I thought to myself, but it opened since Thursday and half of Cork were staggering around Cardiff. A quarter were still trying to digest the dodgy Chinese they ordered in, for the Ricky Hatton fight and 90% of the other quarter were more than likely having sex. The remaining 10% were going to see the new Indy flick!!!!

I'm not going to go into plot details or the likes, but if you are anyway clued into general pop culture, the opening 5 minutes will more or less give you a helluva an idea where the movie is headed. In particular the Hangar 51 sign. Basically,
What didn't I like about Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull? Not alot surprisingly. The one thing that I was absolutely dreading was Shia LeBeouf. And no, I still don't know how to pronounce his name. Bar his "What the fuck were you thinking Mr.Spielberg" swashbuckling scene on a jeep, the Kid in Transformers pulled off a fairly decent performance. Should Indy end up in an old folks home for the next movie, can this kid pull off being an Indy type character, I would think so. But if that's the case and Indy is in the opening 5 minutes of the next flick, drooling and wetting himself and it all revolves around Shia, then Steven and George, don't bother lads. Please!!!!

Theres great action in the movie with some fantastic stunts and a couple of wondrous one liners. The die hard Indy fans will no doubt be whipping themselves as it is no way as good as Raiders and Doom. Its on par with the Last Crusade, just! Its a big popcorn movie, that couldn't live up to the hype, but its enjoyable none the less. Your going to love or quite possibly hate the ending. Me, I loved it! Theres also a nice little moment with Shia at the very end (the hat scene) that put a huge smile on my face. Harrison Ford doesn't look 120 to be fair. As soon as he dons the Fedora, you don't give a shit if he has a buss pass. He's Indiana Jones!!!!!!!!!! I gave it 7.5 / 10 on the show last night. I'd love to give it more, maybe a second viewing is in order!!!! Roll on the Blu-Ray. Some will be disappointed, but many, like many who had the attitude of the Star Wars prequels ("Its Star Wars for god sake") will just say "Its Indiana motherfuckin' Jones". And you know what, that's not a bad thing!!!!!

" Damn, I thought that was closer! "

The one thats the day after yesterday!

Well yesterday was the oul birthday (belated bday greetings to the comment box please) and I hit the ripe ould age of 32. I think after 30, you stop registering birthdays, wel l your own at least. I didnt do much if truth be told. Im not a big fan of fuss anyway, but we went out for the birthday dinner last night and had a wonderful meal in Hardwood. Thanks to all the staff again for providing an excellent service (as usual)

We took a wander to Mahon Point in the afternoon, and keeping in mind that the largest liner in the world was in Cobh, it didnt take us 5 days to get home. Heres a tip though, the next time that big lump of metal with its surf machine and 400 restaurants is in, go down at night. It looks even more stunning at night. Granted, if its not staying over night then theres not much point in going down to see it. There will be other entertainment going on in the car park, but chances are its not suitable for kids. But, from the liner perspective its well worth a midnight rendevous.

On a brief final note, its good to see that Indiana Jones survived Cannes.

Anyway, that is all. Back on the air tonight.

The one thats a little beachy!!!!

Decided to change around the usual routine this morning and get up a wee bit earlier and hit the beach with the lads. Got down to White Strand (Whitegate direction) and got soaked upto the b£$ls. Stunning weather and I cant stress how great it was just to switch off for a few hours. Im off unitl Monday night, due to the oul (der) Birthday which is on Sunday. So heres hoping the switch off continues until then, otherwise I may go Bertie. Not the Ahern one, but the all-sorts one!

The one with addiction

Am I addicted to the web? Unfortunately, I think its safe to say I am. I haven't stolen some wifi signals.....yet!

I woke up this morning with the thoughts of a netless world swimming around my extremely large and intelligent brain (!). I broke out in a sweat, started shivering and at one stage I saw a baby crawling across the ceiling. Well....maybe not as bad as that but it did send a little shiver up my spine. If my net disappeared in the middle of the night, where would I be able to get an inbox fix of Russian brides, penis enlargement pills and some fella asking me to hold onto 10 trillion $'s in my bank account and if I do it for a day, he'll give me a spaceship or something.

Movie tickets, CD's (rarer now as itunes and beatport chew my credit card up on nearly a daily basis), Books, Blu-Rays , Water Filters for the fridge, Bar Stools, Flights, Hotels, Empire State Building tickets, Jalapeno Popcorn, a small selection of the endless of shite I've bought over the net. And that's just the buying part of it. I use the thing on a daily basis for emails, research, entertainment and of course the oul blog. I'm a big fan of public forums. The addiction is so bad, that I have my Ipod touch planked permanently next to the bed, much to the dismay of she who must be obeyed. Its used at all times of the night. I use Google Reader on the Ipod and can easily spend an hour or more at 3 in the morning catching up on various shit. I wake up and do the exact same thing, although I normally check the work email first, in case there's grief.

The net also works as a time machine for me. And no it doesn't involve tying the laptop onto the back of the car and driving through a car park at 88mph, or 142kmh!!!!!! If I have something in the Oven and need 30 minutes to kill, I 'll go online. To what seems like 3 minutes to me, in net time that's actually 30 minutes. Amazing.

Another thought has just hit me like a group of rampaging elephants. What would I actually do without the web? How would I get stuff together for the show? Or would I just slump in the couch and watch Oprah? Its not worth thinking about. Internet addiction is comparable to other addictions like gambling. Well, I reckon If this was gambling related I'd be living in a tent after selling the house for a few tips at some race track!

To some reading, you may well say what a sad bollocks. But, how many of you gawk endlessly at youtube or bebo your arse to all your "bebo friends". But, I do have a social life, I do get out, once theres a public wifi signal and I have my Ipod Touch!!!!!

I'm joking....I think!

The one with Dunk The Junk

Righto, as promised heres the link for dunk the junk

My little brainwave of getting Cork chefs to provide some simple recipes so that everyone can cook something decent as opposed to eating at the chipper 7 days a week. Enjoy and if you fancy providing a recipe, make sure you email me!

More recipes to come and a big thanks to Richard and Arthur for getting the ball rolling and to Eimear for doing all the calling!
