The one with awesomness


The one with an Airbus 340 being built in seconds!

The one with the hour

Right, that "thing" happened again. As per usual, I forgot to change any of the clocks in the house. Actually as I type this, I'm sure the clock in the microwave hasn't been changed. I cant be arsed to check it now!

So, the county wakes up an hour earlier or later I'm not quite sure. Either way we get screwed. I wonder did the communists come up with this daylight savings shite. And before anybody leaves a comment, I know its to do with the farmers. But, maybe communist farmers!

Here’s my suggestion. People enjoy broken clock1their weekend. People love their Sundays. People stay in bed a little longer, Sunday papers, Sunday roast, Sunday sex mornings and so on. But with the hour moving forward, we lose out. The whole weekend is ruined. They may as well drop the bomb!

So why not put the hour change to some other day during the week. One of the shitter days, like a Tuesday or a Thursday? Maybe a Friday? Chances are you’ll be working or whatever, so it’ll make little or no difference to you. People will be in better moods, knowing that when the clocks change, its not going to fuck with their weekend.

Also, it’ll keep the communists at bay for a while longer.

The one with the mini movie review – Knowing

As I’ve mentioned before, I'm a sucker for these end of the world / conspiracy movies. A lot of the time these movies are quite cheesy and the world is saved in the closing moments. knowing_poster5

So, from the man who brought us the wonderful I-Robot (wonder did Apple sue for the title?), Alex Proyas, comes Knowing, starring Nicolas Cage and a host of actors that aren't as well known as the man who swapped faces back in the day with John Travolta.

Knowing has a straight forward story. School in the 50’s decides on making a time capsule and the weird kid in the class scratches loads of numbers on a big page. This along with hundreds of drawings of rocket ships and flying cars are buried into the ground, in a nice, large, silver thermos flask….or something.

50 years later, the school opens up the Thermos flask and the kids all get a piece of what's inside. John Koestler’s (played by Cage) son, of course gets the page with all the numbers on it. From there daddy Cage takes a look at it and realises that all the numbers correspond to disasters throughout history. The number’s not only show what happened in the past but also predict the future. The date, how many will be killed and the longitude and latitude of the event.Then some wise person asks "What happens when the numbers run out?” The conspiracy theory fans will love the fact about the people who are trying to abduct Cage’s son in the movie. Are they government? Are they some secret organisation? Are they pizza delivery men?Knowing_NicolasCage-thumb-550x368

Without giving too much away that’s Knowing in a shell made from nuts. When the predictions come true, the set piece’s are truly horrific and terrifying. Granted they could have been made a bit more gory, but you cant help but wonder is this how a plane crash or subway disaster might actually look like.

From the movie watcher’s point of view, Knowing is kind of like Final Destination. In the sense that you cant wait for the next death to happen even though it may make for grim viewing. Unlike Final Destination, Knowing features a limited number of death sequences. You could count them on one hand to be honest. And for me, they could have increased the terror scale by having 2 or 3 more predictions. That said, the with recent rail and air tragedies, the sequences do really play on the mind. I wouldn't fancy this as an in-flight movie!

There's going to be no best actor performances from Knowing but the movie is solidly made with some terrifically well shot set pieces. Th  row in one or two little “jump” scares and Knowing is a very good movie, with solid, if not average performances from all involved. knowing-121108As with these  genre of movies, some people may feel the whole thing is unbelievable, particularly in the final quarter. But don't let that put you off. Knowing has plenty of good old fashioned entertainment, that doesn't require your brain to be in full working order to enjoy.


The one with the Honest BBQ

Had a good time yesterday at the Honest Food company BBQ! Great food! Drive home was a struggle with stuffed bellies!!!

Andy and Donal

Great slogan!

The one with the mini game review – Wheelman (Xbox 360)

Everyone of us is guilty of having a little secret, hidden pleasure! Be it porn, chilli chocolate and no brainer, action movies. Or all three. None feature heavy on story lines, plots or acting, but give pleasure in huge big dollops! And this is exactly what Wheelman does!


Vin Diesel in his wisdom and gamerness was the first Hollywood actor to set up a game studio, called Tigon studios. So himself and his crew joined forces with Midway and came up with Wheelman. In a nutshell, Vin Diesel is the Wheelman, and undercover cop or operative. Basically all the bad guys think he’s another regular old bad guy. Or something! Sure there's a plot and all, but it doesn't really matter. Not to me anyway!


I was far more interested in stealing cars, bikes and trucks and hurling them around a loose, digital representation of Barcelona. In between driving around a Spanish city which features plenty of jumps and stuff to break, there's plenty of madness, explosions and driving through buildings! Not to mention the ability to air jack cars, which see’s your quite accurate representation of Vin Diesel climbing out of his moving car, jumping onto another car, kicking the driver out and driving off!

The game looks well, some of the textures are a little lo-res and moves along at a fairly frantic pace! There's tonnes of set pieces and explosions to keep the action gamer happy! And don't forget a healthy dose of side missions. Its not as polished as GTA IV (which it will draw comparison from) but you don't really notice complete lack of Mr.Sheen when your side swiping a cop car into the side of a tunnel.wheelman-01-800x600

Wheelman its sheer balls to the wall fun! Don't expect an amazing storyline or mind-blowing cut scenes, but strap on the seatbelt! And to return to the porn comparison, like all good porno flicks, you keep coming back for the same great scenes time after time! And Wheelman has plenty of em! This is some of the better no brainer fun you can have at the moment!

The one with honey

The one with Paintgate!

So much hullabaloo about the teacher who painted and hung pictures of Brian Cowen in the 2 galleries in Dublin. One of the tea-shock on the bog and the other of him nekkid holding a nice oul pair of y-fronts. FFS!

Personally, I don't see what the shitstorm is all about. It may be offensive to some and possibly a little bit in bad taste when his wife and kids are concerned. But I'm sure his wife has seen him naked!

Now, like alot of us, myself included the tea-shock isn't exactly sculpted like Arnold Schwarzenegger in Conan the Barbarian! No big deal. People are people at the end of the day and you are what and who you are. As opposed to jumping on RTE news, from a PR point of view, I think a few of the heads should have sat down and talked this through. But instead the Gardai went thundering off to Today FM, alright, one guard, make that a detective. And an apology was aired from RTE after a complaint from the press secretary.

Instead of the whole thing turning into a circus, where Lions reguarly ate the trainers, it could have been a whole lot different. If  Brian Cowen had went on the news and said "I'm not sure about it to be honest. I think the belly is a bit too big, I'm not eating that many sausages and rashers." or "Well its a good likeness, but my moobs are too big". That would have been the end of it! People would have got a laugh and it would have done wonders for Brian Cowens PR. People actually would have started to laugh with him instead of laughing at him!

The one about Bad jokes

As discussed last night, Scientists have explained why bad jokes are easier to remember than good jokes. Have they got anything else to do with their time? Is this really what we need? Why cant these scientists do more important things like cure the common cold, bring back the dinosaurs and make time travel work in all cars instead of a bloody DeLorean.
I find the bad jokes sad and pathetic, that said I had a huge reaction on the show last night. What makes a bad joke good? I dunno, but 2 made us smile last night from the hundreds submitted.

What do you call a donkey with 3 legs?

The other one I cant remember, but the punchline was Quatro Sinko. So maybe the Scientists are talking out their holes. I cant remember it. Granted it wasn't exactly a bad joke, so maybe they're right. It is easier to remember bad jokes, but by the same theory, the donkey joke above was actually good, so how come I remembered that??? Feck off and bring back the dinosaurs FFS!

The one with a big ass train set

In the words of Darth Vader "Impressive"

The one with the most awesome song you'll hear all day...maybe

The one that I couldnt be bothered thinking up a title for

Its a few months to the wedding and considering I've a wedding dress to get into, Ive decided to kick off another health kick. Those of you who read this thing on a regular basis will note that somethings not quite right with the above. Yup, you've guessed it, me on a health kick. Again.

After taking 45 minutes to move out of the bed at an ungodly hour, I spent another 15 minutes on the Ipod sorting out Rocky style music, for motivation. I also playlisted the Back to the Future theme, but quickly cancelled that on the walk as it did nothing to propel me to 88mph. So with a combination of AC/DC, The Foo Fighters and the Dropkick Murphy's I set off. I eventually crawled back in the door absolutely feckered after a fairly full on thundering up and down the hills and dales....or something.

As the weeks go on, I'm going to increase the distance and try and get my arms going the way the ladies arms go! Its almost like the Nazi walk motion. But just with arms! It'll be worth it to get into the dress!

Anyways, its time to go and wash the sweat out of various places!

The one with Will Ferrell being God again!

The one with a long lost picture

Dont know where this has been found, but very interesting! 

The one where its the Tea-shock

Maybe its just me, or did anybody else go scarlett for Brian Cowen in Washington over St. Patricks day. I'm not talking about the teleprompter incident, where the tea-shock read out 20 seconds of Barack Obama's speech, instead of his own. Those kinda things happen! I'm sure Anne Doyle and Bryan Dobson do it all the time!

I didn't see any of the footage, but I did see a whole tonne of photographs. I found some of them pretty embarrassing to say the least. I know the tea-shock has a tough job and is in very tough times at the moment, but could he not have looked like a 4 year old child who had just met an astronaut?

Could he not have looked like a man who was thinking to himself "So this is the fuckin Whitehouse and Im here with Barrrraccccckkkk OOOOOOObaaammmmaaaaaa and this is just awesome! I hope he likes the shamrock"

Could he not have looked like someone who was told "Yes, you can smell my finger"

I wonder what they thought in the Whitehouse? Was there any scenarios of "Lads wheres the jacks? Ive an awful dose of the scutters" subsequently followed by loud banging on a toilet door"Lads, is there any bog paper here? I'm after using it all". Or was there any thundering in the front door with dog shit on shoes? Or even an oul bit of mud!

Not a fan of RG, but this is damn good

The one with the mini movie review - Paul Blart: Mall Cop

In my time on the planet, Ive probably watched a combined 13 minutes of King of Queens. I'm a sucker for anything to do with New York, but I just don't get KOQs. That should be irrelevant anyway. I mean who goes to see a movie because a guy from a TV show is in it. 

Paul Blart, like the title says is a Mall Cop. As opposed to writing or typing what I thought Im going to do something a little different this time round. Im going to post a serious of pics that I think best sums up what I think of Paul Blart: Mall Cop.

So on a final note, if you'd like a laugh, then you might be better off going to see something else. Baring a brief moment of Rockbandness, there is nothing in this movie that made me even crack a smile. Anyway, the Mall gets overtaken by bad guys and Paul Blart comes to the rescue. Your then left wondering can you get refund, is there long left or is it worth propositioning the single women 3 rows in front. 

The trailer promised so much, major disappointment. I've never hammered nails into my head, but I'm sure It might be more fun Paul Blart: Mall Cop.

The one with Ketchup pain

Ive got a fairly busy day ahead. Lots to do and lots to be done. So I decided to struggle this morning and get up a bit earlier. Not sure why I decided to do that, given that its a looonnngg day. But as the old saying goes, shit happens!

About 45 minutes ago, I decided to make breakfast. There was a few sausages and rashers lying around in the fridge (one was stuck to the door) and they just seduced me to eat them. So after the seduction, I put the little bits of piggy on the griddle pan and left them to slowly cook. If you ask me, sausages need to be cooked slowly, you just get the best out of them to be honest. You fry them fuckers too quick, and they just wont co-operate when they get inside your gob. So using Internet time*, I cooked up the pork.

2 slices of bread were inserted into the toaster, and when the time came, my 2 rashers were introduced to the pork orgy in the pan. Another few minutes pass by, all the time I'm on the laptop, tweeting bullshit and generally doing nothing much online. 

The time arrives for me to have my wicked way with the pork orgy. Skillfully I introduce a device to get them from their pan of pleasure to my plate. I tell them the orgy will continue in my mouth. The rashers and sausages are so indulged in their porkfest, they don't take much notice of what I'm saying. Then I hear a little porky voice.

"Vic, lets kink this shit up! Cover us in a little ketchup"

So, not wanting to be the one to spoil the party, I go to the fridge for some of the fine ass 57 varieties. Then, out of nowhere, alarm bells go ringing in my head. My mind darts back to my garage stop last night. I had to get petrol. I recall thinking about buying a loaf of bread, but I decided against it. Nothing personal or anything toward to the bread. Besides not wanting to run out of petrol on the South Ring and being laughed at by some "dude" in a Nike stripe wearing punto, I also needed ketchup.


I didnt even think of getting the redness!

I take the ketchup out of the fridge and gaze into the bottle. Like a fallen comrade in battle, I know its too late. Theres a little life left in him, but not much. It wont be long. I squeeze the living shit out of the bottle. The gooey red liquid erupts, like a bullet exiting a skull, out of the bottle. Its not long before the fart sound emits from the bottle. This to me, as a ketchup addict, is the sound of death. I've heard it before. But at least Im safe in the knowledge that I can handle this very grim situation. Death is seconds away. I pick up the nearest knife, and like a crazed alcoholic lapping up spilt booze off the floor, I scrape the last of the sauce out of the bottle. 

The pork orgy continues in a jacuzzi of Heinz and all is well with the world. Except now, I really am out of ketchup. FFS

Here is a picture of my fallen comrade. RIP. Notice the pieces hanging on for dear life at the top. Its like the end of Titanic!

*Internet Time = 5 minutes surfing = 20 minutes of normal time. Great for cooking, or losing days.

The one with the mini movie review - Watchmen

This may be a little more than mini!

People have been waiting for years for the big screen version of, what Time magazine classes as one of the top 100 novels since 1923, for donkeys years. And so it arrives. Directed by the same bloke that done such a fine job with 300. Zack Snyder, some might say, has done the impossible by delivering a very faithful version of Alan Moores novel.

Essentially Watchmen is a whodunit. It revolves around a group of "super" heroes, and only one of them has any super powers, due to an accident. Thus Dr. Manhattan is born. The rest of them just dress up as super heroes. That said, they can all kick some serious shit out of people. One of them gets murdered and the rest, in their old(er) age are wondering why and who. All at a time where "super" heroes aren't really loved and respected the way they once were. 

There's plenty of flashback montages about the old times (and these kinda pop up almost as frequently as they do in Family guy) which set the scene for what the characters once were. While this is going on, Rorshach is off trying to figure out whats going on, kinda like Magnum, but with more violence. Nite Owl II and Silk Spectre eventually decide to get the band back together as the impending Doomsday clock counts down to human annihilation via a good dose of Nukes. And Dr.Manhattan has fecked off to Mars because he's sick to shit of planet earth after he breaks up with his oul doll. And don't forget the rumours that anyone he's stuck his giant blue penis into has got cancer. 

Will he come back from Mars and save mankind? Or will he just say "Fuck it" and build a martian supermarket.

This is a long flick, clocking in at over 2.5 hours. So don't expect to be getting up and going home for 90 mins. Also, keep the draining of your bladder till afterwards. Theres alot happening in this flick and you really dont want to miss anything. I wonder how people, who HAVEN'T read the graphic novel, will feel about the movie? Because its not as straight forward as Hulk Smash or donning a red cape, it may not have instant appeal to your average Joe. Should you read the original? I'm not sure to be honest. Its extremely faithful to the graphic novel, but as a movie on its own, I do actually think it stands its own ground. It'd probably help if you've read the novel, but I don't think its a must! Certainly, if the movie has tickled your fancy, go off and read the original. As, like most of these things, its always better.

At times, its a little bit slow, but, like the original novel, it sucks you in. Watchmen plods along and then sprints and then plods and then sprints. All the time while sucking you in, to the point where you don't really pay any attention to a big, blue penis. Its just a part of life.

The violence is phenomenal. Bones hang off ceilings, Bones snap through arms and angle grinders are used to great effect. Certainly not for the weak of heart or stomach. Surrounding the violence, theres, no shortage of slo-mo. If they halved the slow motion sequences, then they probably would have shaved a good few minutes off the running time. It can get a little bit annoying at times, but at least the sex is in slo-mo. Which is no bad thing. Makes me wonder why more porn isn't shot this way!

I wonder what Alan Moore thinks? The last thing I read he was gone off to worship the Dark Lord. He demanded that he does not be credited on the film.  Will he go off and see his creation on the big screen? or will he just stick to sacrificing badgers to the devil. I dont think he'd be disappointed!

Its super violent, its well shot, its a great story and there has been so much heart and passion hurled into this movie from Zack Snyder, who has remained maybe, too faithful to Alan Moore. I wonder did Snyder subconsciously try and please Moore, given that he has always said his amazing graphic novel was unfilmable. Maybe there was a point to be proven. This is certainly a labour of love. I just wonder will alot of it, be lost on the average joe who may have went to see confessions of a shopaholic last week!

I've been looking forward to Watchmen for quite some time now. And as hard as I tried, I still got sucked into the hype. And like the Dark Knight, where again I fell to the hype, I think this will get better the second time round!

Either way, I enjoyed Watchmen. Its a break from the normal superhero / comic book flick. Its not cheesy. Its got a great story, great set pieces and plenty of blue penises.

While my pants were'nt completely off, but they were down around my ankles!

The Watchmen just got watched - It does indeed rock! 8.5/10

I can sense the four men of the apocalypse inbound!

The one with the new and final X Men Origins : Wolverine Trailer

After watching the trailer, my jury is just a little bit out.....hmmmm

The one with some good (possibly) books for World book day

Later on during the show, I'll be going through a list of "cool" books as recommended by the staff of RedFM. No expense was spared for this research. It consisted of sending one of those emails that go to everybody. Most of the budget was spent on hanging around for replies. Anyway, that's happening later on. All for World Book Day

For now though, I just had a rustle through my own book shelves and took a few pics. Associates link to amazon.com as well. Bare in mind I'm not a big fiction fan. Anyways...have a read.

Industrial Light and Magic - Mark Cotta Vaz
For anyone who's into film. I picked the ILM book up on Ebay after much begging, pleading and lying to the seller who was refusing to ship outside the states. I got it for a bargain, compared to the huge prices I could have paid in Cork. Its a mind boggling book and such a great coffee table book as well.

Miss America - Howard Stern
I'm a huge Howard Stern fan since the mid 90's and Miss America is a fantastic read. I read the whole thing in a few nights. Could not put it down at all. Plenty of celeb scandals and comments too boot! Really funny and some great insights from one of the radio industries best!

Long way round - Charley Boorman and Ewan McGregor
I had Charley Boorman on the show about the book, which I read in a matter of nights as well. Great tales about an amazing journey that himself and Ewan undertook. I know theres been more journeys by the lads, but this is the original, and in my view the best.

Etiquette for Outlaws - Rob Cohen and David Wollock
Way, way back in the day I spoke to the 2 authors on the phone and this book has probably been in the toilet with me more than any other. Plenty of madness and simple to pick up, read and put down again! Basically, a how, what, what not and how to do everything that matters.

Pryor Convictions - Richard Pryor
One of the greatest comedians to have ever lived. A wonderful little insight into the brilliance that is Richard Pryor.
The devil in the the kitchen - Marco Pierre White
I'm a big fan of Gordon Ramsay, but for pure rawness and talent I think Marco takes the prize. Absolutely brilliant book with great tales of Oliver Reed and shagging diner's wives.

Andy Kaufman revealed - Bob Zmuda
This a great book by Andy's life long collaborator, Bob Zmuda (who would dress up as Tony Clifton at times). One of the better books available about Andy. Also have a nose off Lost in the Funhouse.

Great Escapes - Theo Kalomirakis
Being a fan of putting cinemas into houses and rooms, this is the bible for me. An amazing architect, Theo Kalomirakis has designed theaters for many high rollers. Buy this book and be prepared to drool.
Banksy Wall and Piece - Banksy
Only picked this up last year, but fascinating insight into the man, the myth and the legend!

My boring ass life - Kevin Smith
Yes, predictable from me I know. Basically its the director and writers blog put into book form. Great posts / pages and some heartfelt touching moments.
