This is the video for Pogo's new track called Upular

The music and video was composed using chords, bass notes and vocal samples from the Disney Pixar film Up.

Pogo is an emerging electronic music artist in Perth, Western Australia. He is known for his work recording small sounds from a single film or scene and sequencing them to form a new piece of music.

I have to say, I love his work, very clever. I'd posted one of his videos last year, but unfortunately its been taken down off youtube now.... grrrrrrrrrrrr


Mixing Star Wars with The A Team, We get this:

Still not as good as Star Trek/ A-Team, but I wont complain, Its still nerdworthy

Raging Against Machines

From Charlie Brooker

At the time of writing, it's not clear whether the 2009 Christmas No 1 will be The Climb by Joe McElderry, or Killing in the Name by Rage Against the Machine. I've just done my bit to inch the latter closer to the top spot by downloading it – something I'd resisted doing until now because I initially thought there was something a bit embarrassing about the campaign. After all, as every other internet smartarse pointed out, both tracks are owned by Sony BMG – so no matter which one sells the most, Simon Cowell wins. In other words, even by raging against the machine, you're somehow raging within it.

But profit isn't the point – or at least it's not the reason I downloaded it. For one thing, I happen to think Killing in the Name is an excellent song, so I've already got something out of it. Most importantly, it contains genuine emotion. Even if the climactic repeated howls of "Fuck you, I won't do what you tell me!" put you in mind of a teenager loudly refusing to tidy his bedroom – as opposed to a masked anarchist hurling petrol bombs at the riot squad – there is at least an authentic human sentiment being expressed. Zack de la Rocha is audibly pissed off.

Compare this to the pissweak vocal doodle that is Joe McElderry's X Factor single. For a song whose lyrics ostensibly document an attempt to gather the spiritual strength to overcome adversity and thereby attain enlightenment, The Climb is about as inspiring as a Lion bar. It's a listless announcement on a service station Tannoy; an advert for buttons; a fart in a clinic; a dot on a spreadsheet. Listening to it from beginning to end is like watching a bored cleaner methodically wiping a smudge from a Formica worksurface.

But then nobody's buying The Climb in order to actually listen to it. They're buying it out of sedated confusion, pushing a button they've been told will make them feel better. It's the sound of the assisted suicide clinic, and it doesn't deserve to be No 1 this Christmas.

This isn't mere pop snobbery, by the way. I'd rather see Girls Aloud at No 1 than Editors. But The Climb is a lame cover version of a lame Miley Cyrus song. If X Factor can't be arsed to do better than that, its grip on the yuletide charts deserves to be broken.

Anyway, while I'm happy for Rage Against the Machine to be enjoying the sales and publicity, I can't help thinking we could've organised a slightly better protest ourselves. Chances are the X Factor will try to kick back extra hard next year – perhaps by actually releasing a song with a melody in it – so it's best to start planning the resistance now.

The temptation might be to pour a lot of time and effort into creating a catchy anti-X Factor anthem, but the smartest counter-move would be to release something short, cheap and throwaway that isn't even a proper song at all. I propose a track called Simon Cowell: Shit for Ears, which consists of a couple of eight-year-olds droning the phrase "Simon Cowell, shit for ears" four times in a row in the most deliberately tuneless manner possible. It should last only about 15 seconds or so. Quick enough to register; brief enough not to outstay its welcome.

Then we release it online at the lowest price possible. What's the bare minimum you can charge and still be eligible for a chart position? It could be as little as 2p. Because the track is just recorded on to a cheap mic, and released without the assistance of any record label, 100% of the profits go to charity.

Dot-eyed CGI judge and omnipresent hair product spokeswoman Cheryl Cole recently complained that the campaign against McElderry's single was "mean", adding "If that song – or should I say campaign – by an American group is our Christmas No 1, I'll be gutted for him and our charts."

She's missing the point. It's not mean: it's funny. If the Christmas No 1 turns out to be an angry, confrontational rock track that concludes with an explosion of f-words, it'll be precisely the shot in the arm the charts have been sorely lacking the last few years: something that puts a genuine smile on the face of millions of people; sensitive people, thoughtful people; people alienated by the stifling cloud of grinning mechanical pap farted into their faces on a weekly basis by cocky, clattering, calculating talent shows such as X Factor. It would give these people hope. Maybe only in a very small and silly way, but still: a tiny spoonful of hope. And what could be more Christmassy than that?


Well now we know Rage is No.1 in the Christmas charts... but does anyone really care?
It hyped up the xfactor for a bout 30 seconds... but no one really cared.

Team Avatar: Universe Police

If you've been a regular visitor to my blog, you will probably have noticed I am a fan of mash up movie trailers, The "voice over" from one film with footage from another.

This is my new favourite trailer.

I love it because Team America is actually one of my favourite films ever.


Classic... hehehe

Fuck you Deputy Stagg

Oh it all went a bit stroppy in the Dail today.

Did Mr Gogarty let himself down by letting out such an outburst or was he simply voicing the TRUE feelings of a nation?

I don't think telling another member of parliament to fuck off is big or clever.
That an to be honest the Green party just rolled over when they went in to government, so i have to say FUCK YOU Paul Gogarty just because.

Also, if that was a full chambers debate maybe it would have carried some weight, maybe Paul Gogarty felt it was his chance to act all big seeing as the grown ups had left the room.

Either that or it was the biggest gay off ever seen in the Dail.

Oh come on, ye were all thinking it

Muppety Christmas

The muppets have been very busy of recent, along with a kick ass cover of Bohemian Rhapsody they have gotten into the Christmas spirit with this new video:

Loving the way the Muppets are moving with the times, I guess there has always been an evolution to them, The Muppet Show was set in a Musical Hall/Theatre and Muppets Tonight was set in a tv studio, Muppet Studios now seems to be embracing the genius of viral videos on youtube.

Long may it continue

A-Team Star Trek MkII

Not sure if it is as good as this version, but i still got a giggle outta this mash up trailer.

What do you think?

Zombies In 3D



Sony has officially  confirmed they closed a deal this week with Zombieland producer Gavin Polone and director Ruben Fleischer to return for a 3-D sequel to the original, which cost $24 million and has earned $85.2 million worldwide to date. Stars Woody Harrelson and Jesse Eisenberg are in negotiations  to reprise their roles as the pair of post-apocalyptic survivors. Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick are already hard at work on the sequel’s screenplay.

Source: Bloody-Disgusting

Sweet. Zombieland was one of the better films of 2010 (wouldn't be hard in a year with such shit out), I'm really glad they've signed on for a sequel. 3D zombies? What's not to love?

Zombie Wars

Apparently there was a "zombie theme" on last week (links are now all ahem "dead")
It was in honour of the new Clone Wars episode "Brain Invaders" which aired at the weekend.

Matt Busch was one of the artists who submitted art for the project, he created these fantastic spoof images for Zombie Wars, gotta say it would have made the prequel trilogy alot more entertaining if there had been zombies.

at least I have chicken

From IGN

What was once thought to be impossible has become reality.

A Taiwanese player has become the first person in the world to complete all 986 achievements found in World of Warcraft, reports CVG.

"Little Gray" on the Wrathbringer server managed to killed 390,895 creatures and completed 5,906 quests in total, according to the WoW Armory website. As you would expect, however, there is one slight problem that should be noted.

The player has yet to earn the holiday achievement 'BB King' but due to a bug with an old PvP achievement, he managed to earn two points, giving him 986/986.

It's unclear as of now if one man completed this feat or if it were many. It's possible this account was shared amongst a group of skilled guild members.

I am kinda hoping this was a "guild" effort, because seriously, thats a pretty sad thing to brag about if your an individual.

Unless of course it was all done with the battle cry of :

Leeeroooyy Jennkinnnnsss!!!!!

Boldly going where no christmas related trinket has gone before

Awwww so cute.

Have you been a good Trekker this year?
Then these Trek inspired Christmas stockings are just the ticket for you.

The stockings are made out of fleece and lined with a thick canvas material. 

The stocking pattern can be found here

End of time preview

This was shown last week during Children In Need on BBC1, Sorry for the delay, I've been kinda busy with work.

I fear for the world....

.. I really do.

Check these fuckheads out:

Dana Hanna updates his Facebook and Twitter, at the altar. Without his bride Tracy knowing he was going to do it. I’m sure she was thrilled:
I surprised not only my guests, but also Tracy by pulling out my phone and posting on Facebook and Twitter from the altar during out wedding. I had her phone ready in my pocket, so when she asked for it I could hand it to her. No one knew about this except the minister, and myself.

And they worry about gay people ruining the sanctity of marriage, yet these ass clowns can "tweet" from the alter?

Iron Man 2

Iron Man to me was the 1st proper Marvel comic to Movie cross over that got it right.
I mean ok, XMEN 2 was good, but Iron Man set the bar (it was also the 1st film made my Marvel Studios, which may have something to do with it)
Yesterday they released the "Teaser" poster for Iron Man 2

Looking forward to May 7th 2010 already.

I'm not jumping on the Lady Gaga bandwagon at all, but I love the video for Bad Romance to borrow a phrase from a friend of mine "she is a fucking lunatic"

Still dont get her music, I like the singles she releases, but I've tried to listen to her album/s an I keep skipping to the singles.

She is a crazy bitch, gotta respect a crazy bitch

and now for something completely different

Sometimes people think they have a "handle" on my musical tastes.

I like to dispel that myth every so often...

This is one of my all time FAVOURITE songs

Taken from Jason's All Over Creation Album which i seen him tour with in Limerick TWICE, both gigs blew my mind, as the 2nd time he played here, Jason got off the stage, unplugged his guitar an turned off his mic for the entire show and played to the 20 people in attendance like that as long as we sat round him in a semi circle.

One of the most amazing gigs I've ever attended, Also had the honour of talking to him after the show, such a down to earth man.

So anyways....

Was this expected :D

how much is that doggie in the window

Trailer for the new K9 TV show featuring the Doctors canine chum.... kinda.

It is K9, but there are NO connections to the whoniverse apart from K9's 1st appearance in which he does in fact look like the K9 we know then... well he basically regenerates, which unsurprisingly is the title of the pilot Regeneration

I watched the 1st episode of K9 this afternoon, If you liked The Sarah Jane Adventures, you'll probably like this, its a kids show plain an simple.

In case you are wondering, apparently this is K9 Mk I, last seen in the possession of Leela at the end of The Invasion of Time.

Torchwood Season 4?

According to an interview given to TV guide magazine by Russell T Davies, Torchwood season 4 could be taking shape by next January.

Russell says:

The recession has hit British television, but fingers crossed, it will be a go. We expect things to start to move in January. We’ve got great ideas for the show. I think there’s a further lease on life for many years to come, but certainly for a [fourth season],” Davies says. John Barrowman is finishing his run in “La Cage Aux Folles” in London, so there’s plenty of time to trade his feather boa for Captain Jack’s trench coat.

As gathered from another interview it seems that he knows exactly where everything will pick up, too. He admits that he already knows where Gwen, Rhys, their baby and Jack are, and what shape Torchwood itself would actually take.

I'm looking forward to this, as CoE really did seem as the end of Torchwood, nice to see how RTD pulls this outta the fire 

Old Who


 Fancy watching some old Dr Who episodes online legally?

Well BBCWORLDWIDE have put some episodes of season 1 6 10 an 21 up on youtube

In your Gaff

Wednesday evening I get a phone call from local Limerick scamp Sharon Arseburn asking me if i would film her new video for her. Filming with Sharon is ALWAYS a riot, so I quickly agreed, grabbed my camera gear an headed off.

After finishing off the final edits today, this is the end result.

To quote Sharon "weak on crabs"

make it so


This Star Ship chandelier was designed by ELK Lighting to resemble the Starship Enterprise but they only call it the Star Ship because they don't want to actually pay royalties.

Plus the nacelles are upside down

Apart from that its pretty kick ass.

If you want one, it can be found here for $189

New trailer released for the Clash Of The Titans remake, kinda looks like 300 meets Alexander.

Yes, that would make this film pretty gay in both uses of the word.

Adjusted for inflation

What is the Six Millon Dollar Man worth today?


Back in 1974, astronaut Steve Austin, gravely injured in a crash, was given a new arm, two new legs and one new eye in the iconic show The Six Million Dollar Man. But what would such cyborg reconstruction cost today?
Last May, CNN Money estimated that due to inflation, that $6 million surgery would cost slightly over $26 million. But obviously the surgery in the original TV show wasn't quite medically accurate, and creating those bionic parts from scratch would actually cost somewhere between $50 and 100 million today—although after one successful prototype is completed, it could cost far less.

Singing in the force

So, this is a spoof that merges camp musical and sci fi

sure, im gonna love it


Stairs in a Tardis

If you've been reading this blog recently you know I've been very ...harsh if you like on the new Doctor Who with Matt Smith, im not liking the new Doctor much, don't like his clothes, not a fan of the new look tardis and i fucking HATE the CBeebies inspired new logo.

However, this clip shows what appears to be a new console room in the tardis.

It kinda looks like across between the old layout and the layout from the movie combined.

So here it is, so far the the only thing im liking about the new who is, the tardis console room

New who trailer

BBC released a new trailer for THE WATERS OF MARS

Kinda spoilerific but OMG the line said by the continuity announcer at the end is just the job.

I just realised that the 15th is a Sunday which means i DONT miss this episode when its shown, as I had previously thought i was in Dublin on the day it was shown

I love this

Putting the DOH! In Play-doh

Apparently these adverts for Play-doh appeared in a magazine in Singapore.
They were only printed the once, Then HASBRO found out about them and well the Play-doh hit the fan. I'm guessing someone got fired for authorising these.

I like em however.



On This Day In History



In 1955, Doctor Emmet Lathrop Brown was standing on a toilet hanging a wall clock when he slipped and beat his head on the bathroom sink. Unconscious, Doc had a vision. And that vision was that of a flux capacitor -- the device that makes time travel possible. The rest, my friends, is history. Or should I say, future?

STOP! . . hoochie time

When he isn't scaring paranormal investigators or dressing up as Sweeny Todd, Ger ODonnell keeps busy by being the creative genius that is Gerodeo Music Video Productions.

I've posted Ger's work here before with the fantastic A Celebration By Mar video.

Well last week he finished work with another Irish artist called Hitman Lord, who has been hailed by Phantom F.M as "One to watch in 2009".

Apart from the fantastic music video, my other reason for posting this video here is because my good friend Ciara Peters makes an appearance as a very seductive temptress in the video.

How fucking fab does she look... She'll put the spring in Springfield, thats for sure... hahaha

Don't know bout you... but that's the sorta hotel i would stay in.

One of the "better" daft inventions is this mug.

Now, if someone can invent a biscuit holder cup that will DUNK the biscuits for you then we have a winner

Stop it now

Seriously... this is a step to far.

Clapper board from the new series of Doctor Who, apparently this ISNT gonna be Season 5, but infact Season ONE!... ehhh what?
I mean i can see why some of these changes an tweaks are occouring and its obviously Steve Moffat's way of saying look, I'm the new lead writer and executive producer and there are gonna be some changes around here.
But saying this is SERIES ONE? Ummm TECHNICALLY its Series 31, but we had a reboot in 2005 and so it Series 5

Confused yet?

I am.

Wednesday, October 7, 2009


Seriously... what the FUCK is THIS supposed to be:

If this REALLY is the new shows logo I'm beyond unimpressed... it looks fuckin clown shoes is what it looks.



Yeah.. it REALLY is the new Doctor Who logo

I'm sorry but it all seems to be going back to 1987 with the look of the Doctor, The Tardis an now this logo.
Is that a good thing?
I mean I really want to be proved wrong on this.

Where The Wild Gremlins Are...

Its been a good 12 years since I've seen either of the 2 gremlins films, and after seeing this new "mash up" trailer for Gremlins 2 and Where The Wild Things Are I reckon i should remedy this.

Seriously... how cute is Gizmo...


I just remembered I bought these both on dvd 2 years ago an never watched them... thats getting rectified RIGHT NOW


Only Fags smoke fags, would seem to be the jist of this spoof video from the Onion News Network

Hilarious, I love it

wow is all i can say.

New video from gerodeo productions, i have to say, this blew me away, such a fantastic video, works with the song so well.

Always enjoy Ger's videos but i enjoy the ones with music I like even more.
This has instantly become a favourite of mine. Well done Ger, I am seethingly jealous of your talent. *

* I swear Ger didn't ask me to post this, its genuine respect for talent

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus

Ok, 1st off... what the hell is an Imaginarium??

I haven't a clue, but i do like this trailer for The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, it was the film Heath Ledger was filming when he died.

Rather than abandon the project one-third of the way through filming, Ledger's role was recast with Johnny Depp, Jude Law, and Colin Farrell portraying transformations of Ledger's character Tony as he travels through a dream world.

Gotta say, it looks mental... even if a bit of it looks like that coke ad from 2008.

The Ballad of GI JOE


Not seen the new film yet, I've heard its terrible an brilliant at the same time.
This however is hilarious, also get bonus brilliance points because it has Henry Rollins in there as Hawk and Sgt. Slaughter in there as... well Sgt. Slaughter.

FTW as the kids say on the internets these days

New trailer, gotta say i love it.

Sunday, August 2, 2009



Love it, pop song covered and made sound evil with a video to add to the subversion.

I give you my song of the week.

Parent of the year award goes to


An Alabama woman was arrested Tuesday afternoon after police say she injured a child while dragging it through a store in Rome.

According to Floyd County Jail records:

Melissa Catherine Smith-Means, 37, of Gaylesville, Ala., was arrested by Rome police around 12:30 p.m. She was charged with felony first-degree cruelty to children.

Police say she was observed by customers and employees at a store on Broad Street, dragging a small child around by a backpack leash. The child had visible marks on the neck from the incident.

She remains in jail without bail

I am in COMPLETE shock with this video, seriously you wouldn't even treat a dog like that.
Still i'm sure that child will have a better upbringing than a child with gay parents, after all... that is the argument for not letting gay people adopt right?

Tom Baker to return as the Fourth Doctor


From the BBC Doctor Who page

Tom Baker is returning as the Fourth Doctor in a series of audio adventures known collectively as Doctor Who: Hornets' Nest. His co-stars include Rula Lenska, Stephen Thorne and Michael Maloney. Richard Franklin is also onboard, reprising his role of Mike Yates who viewers last saw in 1974's Planet of the Spiders, the first story to feature Tom Baker as the Doctor.

Tom travelled in the TARDIS for 7 years before handing over to Peter Davison in Logopolis and although he has made brief appearances in The Five Doctors, flashbacks and a charity special, these are the first 'full' dramas which feature the Fourth Doctor since 1981.

Paul Magrs, who wrote all five of The Hornets' Nest adventures, commented, 'It feels fantastic to write for him. I would say he's a brilliant mixture of everything the Fourth Doctor ever was. He's dark and sombre at times; other times he's gleefully macabre and mischievous.'

The individual stories which make up the quintet are entitled The Stuff of Nightmares, The Dead Shoes, The Circus of Doom, A Sting in the Tale and Hive of Horror and they will be available on CD and as download from September 2009.

We'll be bringing you more details and some clips soon, but in the meantime we have a gallery which includes shots taken at the cast recording.

Planet Hulk

More squuuuuuuuuuuueeeee moments

The story which reignited my love affair for graphic novels/comics is being made into a movie.

Which... if this follows on from the comic in anyways proper fashion, there shall also be a sequel "World War Hulk".

My only peeve us that hulk doesn't look pissed off enough, mind you, if the sequel happens he will be UBER pissed off.

Wonder if this will lead to a Skaar movie... or is that a fan boy dream to far ??

Doctor who overload.







So it's a shitty rainy day here in Limerick city, with only my Internet to keep me sane, flicking through sites i realise that the BBC have released an new Trailer for The Waters Of Mars.

YAY!!! Much bouncing, as well a new Doctor Who trailer is always a reason for me to get excited

I dare you not to grin, when he says "well I don't hear anyone knocking, Do you?

Now I had watched the trailer 4-5 times, all with a HUGE feck off grin on my face, feeling oh so slightly great about my self, when i discovered something else

The trailer for The end of time.

The very LAST David Tennant Doctor Who story. It was shown last week at Comic-Con.

It has a squeeeeee factor of 100, please be seated when watching.

Love that collective audience squeeee at the end... I know how they felt.

Is it ever to late for this kinda thing?

Not sure, but i'm sure that this maxes out my bad taste quota for the day.

Any complaints, what she said at the end ok

Stargate Voyager..

So another new Stargate: Universe trailer

Christ it looks so bad, infact it looks so bad I thought it was a fan made trailer till he was "beamed up"

Sorry even an Empire strikes back reference isn't gonna save this.

I shall be watching this probably on the 3rd of October, but dont be expecting favourable reviews.

WTWTA : Author Approved

Further news since this post.

Apparently Maurice Sendak is very enthusiastic about Spike Jonze adaptation of his book.
A new featurette shows some new footage along with Sendak drawing parallels between himself an Jonze.

Hopefully this bodes well.

I think it would be upsetting for me if this film doesn't meet my expectations

Alice In Wonderland

Trailer for the new Tim Burton film, Alice In Wonderland has reached the internet.
Film features Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham-Carter's barmy looking Red Queen, and Mia Wasikowska as Alice herself.

Johnny Depp in a Tim Burton film?

Who would have thought of it?

Wonder shall he be playing a sort of weird gothic character?

See for yourselves

Seriously... chill out

I live with a guy who is HUGELY in to his World of Warcraft (henceforth i shall refer to it as WoW), in fact up until a year ago this Apt was full of WoW players.

Now my house mate may spend a month doing quests and collecting "gold" just so he can be one of the very few people in the game that owns a "motorbike"

But apart from this one detail, I know little of his adventures WoW.

Which is a small mercy, because I wouldn't be living here if he took the game as seriously as this kid.

This is ALL real apparently, its best watched in order.

While watching the rest of videos on his brothers youtube channel I can only surmise that th his kid is in need of some big time therapy, he is just a spoilt rich kid with no concept of reality.


I have to admit, i do love messing around with photoshop, I make little "bits" here an there, forum avatars, signatures, the odd poster an such.

Today while I watched some people on line try to take pot shots at each other by putting their heads on movie posters, I thought, I can do SOOOOOOOOOOO much better than that....

So I did, but not wanting to be petty and bring some one else down, I went with the tried an tested way of Self Deprecation.

This is what I came up with:

Probably the only person I know who will prove a point by taking the piss out of himself.

I must be crazy.

Does not like...


Filming on the new series of Doctor Who with Matt Smith has got underway in Cardiff and this is one of the 1st images issued.

Sorry... I dont like the look of the new Doctor... Bow-ties? Fuck off.
He looks like a bloody geography teachers!
Damn it i'm missing David Tennant already, he at least looked like a sexy history teacher.

Oh and apparently Karen Gillans companion name is Amy Pond.

Pond? ehhhhh

I despair.

Blown away

I very rarely just post a video JUST for the music it contains, but I felt i had to share this song with people.

I first heard this song about 7 or 8 yrs ago, sat in the back seat of a car going up to dublin to see some random band, who at the moment I cant recall.

I was given a copy of the album on tape, which I think I listened to ONCE an then lost.

And so the album and this incredible song remained lost to me, until last week, when the internet offered it up to me via a download.

I have since been rocking out to this track repeatedly.

Hope ye enjoy

Beautiful letter

Wonderful Letter From The Mother of A Gay Son To Minister Ahern

Dear Mr Ahern,

My name is Helen Doody, you have already received and failed to reply to a letter that my own son Declan sent to you a week or so ago. So like any good and decent parent I am now trying to get you to listen to and protect my child – it is the very least that any mother would do for her own children.

I read Declan’s email and everything he said to you in the e-mail was true. He had a very tough time growing up in Abbeyfeale, I can still picture him crying in the mornings before he went to school because he was afraid of the people who were going to be waiting for him – bullies who would beat the living daylight out of him, people who crushed the very spirit within him. I tried numerous times to help him, I spoke to teachers, to the parents but the problem got a quick-fix but a weeks later it just continued on.

Declan was always a very shy and quiet boy but as the bullying continued he became more and more invisible. His Dad and I spent nights talking about him, wondering would he go to school in the morning, would he come home that evening with a ripped jumper or would his school copies be destroyed, we tried so hard to get him the help he needed but as the bullying continued, he started to shut his family out.

All of this began to change however the day Declan came out to me. I am not going to pretend that I handled it like a saint, it is a shock to the system, you don’t think about your child being gay, you just assume they are straight and when Declan told me I didn’t know what to do. I thought I had done something wrong, I thought it was my fault, I really thought that this was it for my son, when people started to find out that he was gay his entire world would turn into a living hell but it didn’t.

Over the coming weeks he began to change, I finally started to see him smile again and there was something different about his heart too. I saw my son reach a very dark and lonely place at the age of 16 but even at his lowest my son, had the courage and strength to come out and say he was gay.

He went to college with a new look on life, he finally seemed to be enjoying himself and it was only then I realised that there was nothing wrong with Declan. If my son was happy, if he was no longer worried about what other people thought about him then I knew that there was nothing wrong with being gay.

For many years he had kept a secret from me and his family because he thought we would reject him, like so many people had done to him before and now at the age of 23 he has graduated with a degree, a higher diploma and a masters. He has become the fine young man that his father and I are so very proud to be able to call our son.

When I heard on the news that gay people would now finally be able to register the relationships like any married couple I finally thought things had changed and I suppose many other people around the country like me thought the same. However I have now realised that what you plan on doing is nothing short of telling the gay community that they are still not equal. You will not tell my sons that they are not equal to their brothers, friends and the rest of society. Your Civil Partnership Bill is not good enough for my family, and hundreds, thousands of other families in this country. I might not be the smartest person in this country but even I can tell you that this bill is all but worthless and will only further the opinion that gay people are not the same as everyone else.

I have been there for all my sons when they have had their hearts broken by girlfriends and boyfriends. I helped them pick out gifts on Valentines day and shopped around for a Tux for the Debs. I have met boyfriends and girlfriends, I have liked some and been frosty to others. I have thought about each and every single of them getting married to someone that they love and who will love them back as much as I do.

I have six sons Mr Ahern, six very beautiful boys who became six very beautiful and upstanding young men!

Two of my boys are gay. Four are straight. Two are firemen. Two love playing video games. One loves to cook. Three of them love cars. Five of them have had their tonsils out.

All of them are my sons.

You have the power to change this country so do the right thing and change this country for the better, wake up and realise that there is still time to clean up this mess and give gay couples the same rights as straight couples.

I am asking on behalf of my gay children, their gay friends, my gay friends, my family, I am asking you as a member of this country, as a taxpayer but most of all I am asking you as a mother, to help my children and revise this Bill so everyone in this country can be equal.

Yours truly,

Helen Doody

Fantastic letter, made me get a wee bit emotional I have to admit.

Cartoons.... now with added reality

Bugs: It's true, Doc; I'm a rabbit alright. Would you like to shoot me now or wait 'til you get home?
Daffy: Shoot him now! Shoot him now!
Bugs: You keep outta this! He doesn't have to shoot you now!
Daffy: He does so have to shoot me now! [to Elmer] I demand that you shoot me now!

Pop artist James Cauty's work Splatter repurposes classic Warner Bros. and Hanna-Barbera cartoons and gives them a Sin City-style blood spatter makeover, "presenting the viewer with unrelenting acts of bloody, cartoon violence, which, in cartoon law, ultimately cannot cause fatal injury."

The idea came from the Cauty's 15-year-old son who suggested his dad show the violence that cartoons leave out. "People have been saying since the ‘60s that cartoons should show the consequences of violence, or kids will get the wrong idea," Cauty told the Telegraph.

"Its very difficult to shock kids these days - you have cartoon characters being shot in the head and walking off cliffs, so we have decided to replace them with something more realistic."

This is the full "edit", which althought it has avoided the sounded being removed by WMG its doesnt have as much impact as the 1st video

Michael Jackson has died.... awwwww
An man who everyone figured was a weirdo kidde fiddler is now a deceased musical legend, a modern day Mozart, funny how death can change a whole planets opinion on you.

Or has it?

Media outlets around the world are breaking their balls trying to get "the big" jacko story.
In death as in life there are many many myths about MJ, starting with how he died, why he died, what to do with his remain (every thing from cryogenic freezing to being plastinated)

Every person who has spent more than 5 minutes in his company are selling there stories, trying to milk the Jacksons cow for one last suckle.

Michael was a talented artist, I will give him that, but he was also a very troubled individual.
Something that was not helped by his "entourage" who seemed to want to keep themselves in a lifestyle HE was accustomed to.

We will never really know the true stories about Michaels life as there will always be a minimum of 5 different versions to every thing.

Which is kinda sad really.

Talented people are often the most fucked up people you will meet, I think MJ was seriously fucked up, in his own head and by the way he was treated by the people closest to him.
So I'm gonna suggest, we try not to focus on the media circus of his life and just look at the musical legacy left behind. Even if your not a Jackson fan, there is probably one song you like, as song that makes you smile or brings back a happy memory and POSSIBLY even want to dance a little.

Now thats worth remembering.

Maybe its obvious to use this video, but i remember watching this video after 12 on channel 4, when it was 1st played. it scared the SHIT out of me... I was 5 at the time ok.
Apologies for being lax with the blogging.

I shall endeavour to correct this once July kicks in proper.

theyre BAAAAAAACK!!!!!


Spotted this news story in the papers on Friday, its from the newsdesk of the Daily Star, so it MUST be true..... right?

Actually im surprised it didn't come from the Sun news desk.

Matt Smith will battle The Daleks in his first 'Doctor Who' episode.

The 26-year-old actor - who takes over from current Time Lord David Tennant next year - will face the legendary extraterrestrial mutants in his first adventure to please fans who think he is too young to play the iconic role.

BBC bosses reportedly decided to revive the Doctor's most famous foes to boost show ratings as they are worried Smith will not be as popular as Tennant - widely considered one of the most successful stars of the long running sci-fi series.

A network source told Britain's Daily Star newspaper: "They know fans will take a while to get used to Matt as The Doctor, so it makes sense to have him fight his most famous enemies. They always bring good ratings."

BBC chiefs have previously revealed they plan to "step back in time" when designing the Tardis for the new series of the programme.

Instead of the current brown and orange interior, the time and space machine will have blue walls and white windows, similar to the original 1960s Tardis.

The new series of 'Doctor Who' - which stars Smith at the 11th Time Lord - is due to start next spring.


Do you belive it at all? I dont, dont think you can start a series with a BIG enemy, the Daleks have been 3 of the last 4 seasons end villain, seriously don't see them starting of Season 5 that way

Like the idea of revamping the interior of the Tardis, even tho i have got very accustomed to the "desktop theme"

Death Of A Time Lord


Super fan Sebastian Neale, 26, of Risca, South Wales, tragically passed away last week from head injuries. His caring friends and family pulled together one hell of a salute to the biggest fan of Britain's Time Lord, The Doctor.

According to the Daily Mail, his coffin was made to resemble the blue police box Tardis complete with flashing light.

The funeral music was swapped out in favor of the Dr. Who's theme song and mourners were greeted with the Doctor's words, "I'm a time lord ... I'm not a human being. I walk in eternity." Instead of Bible verses, the funeral consisted of quotes from classic Who scripts, including William Hartnell's famous speech from "The Dalek Invasion Of Earth": "One day, I will come back. Yes, I shall come back. Until then there must be no regrets, no tears, no anxieties. Just go forward in all your beliefs, and prove to me that I am not mistaken in mine."

Now thats a send off, i love the use of William Hartnells words in the ceremony.

Congrats to my sister Nicola on giving birth to a beautiful & healthy baby girl this after noon.

I'm off to Mayo tomorrow to see my new niece and I am REALLY excited.


Look at her throwing gang signs already... WEST SIDE BITCHESSS!!!!

Planet Express to deliver again?

Good news, everyone! and other applicable quotes!

Rumours have it that Comedy Central has decided to expand its lineup beyond regular showings of Ghostbusters 2 and National Lampoon movies, and has ordered 13 new episodes of the nerd-favorite animated comedy Futurama.

I have to say, i have grown to REALLY love Futurama over the last few years and like it or not, its better than the current Simpsons... mind you so are stale farts in a lift.

Out of the loop for a week

I go home to Mayo for a week and look what i miss:

At 1pm
on 29th May, 2009, it was announced that 21-year old Karen Gillan would be the Doctor's new companion. Karen will star opposite the Eleventh Doctor, played by Matt Smith, when the next series of Doctor Who begins in 2010.

Looks as if we are going to have a VERY young Doctor Who team next spring.
Full story on the BBC Doctor Who here

Sao Til???

This is a bit daft, but seriously... i am so fucking jealous of Tim lol

His reaction on meeting David Tennant is brilliant lol


Ive been reading this particular webcomic for over 3 months now, and i resisted posting a link to it because it wasnt finished (i hate webcomics that dont finish or just stop for 6 months for no reason.)

Anyways, it finished up last week and i figured, now is the time.

Its a Dr Who comic called The 10 Doctors, have to say very well written an i REALLY enjoyed it, plenty of references for old fans an accessable enough for new fans.

Not sure if it ever could be turned in to a workable tv plot, but i think it twould be shiney as hell :D

Comic starts here

Let me know what you think of it.

the weird tat that i like

i find that I am rather easily amused sometimes, its kinda sad sometimes really.
But yes, something cheesey , 80's or Sci Fi based (which strangely seems to reflect my childhood TV viewage) will make me grin like an idiot.

Yes... easily amused.....

This amused me this week:

Green Lantern

I do so wish this was a real trailer, but alas its not, but is this not one of the greatest movie trailers of all time?

Talk about throwing down a gauntlet for the director of the real film once it gets out of Production hell

Monday, May 25, 2009


Cause it got mentioned in the comments of my last post, I just wanna post this video.

There really is no story behind this or anything, just The Sweeney was brilliant.

Rumours are that Ray Winstone may be on board for a film based remake.
As long as its not set in modern day, i dont mind.


Today is nerd pride day.

I am a nerd, yes I'm coming out of the nerd closet and admitting that I am a nerd. (this may not surprise some you hehe)

So today, don't be afraid to embrace your nerdy tendencies.
Go watch some Sci Fi(the genre or the tv channel, all good) some anime, dismantle something to just see how it works, read a comic but do so with pride.

Be all you can be an all that malarky, now im off to put on a star wars based t-shirt and read Skaar - Son of Hulk again and later i plan to watch a BALL of Doctor Who episodes, why?....
Always was, always will be.

Speaking of Stargate...

With the demise of Stargate - SG1 two years ago and Stargate Atlantis bowing out this January, I'd kinda been prepared to forget about the franchise. The rumoured Stargate Universe show didnt really seem to do anything for me, as the story outline and even the description of crew made the whole thing sound like it should have been called Stargate Voyager.

Infact I still believe that to be the case and in away this new trailer does nothing to make me feel excited about this series.

"There isnt a chance in hell we are gonna escape this"

What being cancelled after one season?... probably not


Found another new trailer, sounds like fucking Coldplay being played over it.

Even more shit.

Still no Stargate

opening done ala Dallas, but I did find this

I love the little spin around the Doctor does at the end.

Alice... whats the matter

How did i forget to post this? (trouble of importing old entries from a previous blog)

Alice is an electronic piece of which 90% is composed using sounds recorded from the Disney film 'Alice In Wonderland' and i love it, genius is what it is, pure an simple.

There is a link for the mp3 of this on the guys artist page on lastfm which is found here

Before I got ready to go out tonight, I got an inkling for listening to some Deicide.
Yeah, DEATH METAL.. what would you expect lol
Anyways,I don't have my copy of Serpents of the Light with me (which is actually the ONLY album by them I like an own)
So I figured, fuck it I BOUGHT the album, surely I'm entitled to download the fucker now.

when i check on its status after 3-4 minutes I saw this:

and it stayed at that percentage of download for 10 minutes...

Make of it what you will.

Its not new, an i may have posted this somewhere before

but I love this song and the video is very clever.

I've got 2 Greenskeepers albums since i 1st found this song and sadly this really is their best work by a country mile

Boldly going....

Ok... this may contain a spoiler...

I LOVED the new Star Trek film, it was one of the best summer films i have seen in well over 10yrs, it is probably one of the best Sci Fi films and it is DEFINITELY the best Star Trek film (which i kinda find hard to say as I really like Wrath of Khan)

It was shiny fancy and new, you dont have to be a fan of anything of previous trek to enjoy this. It is almost standalone in its nature.

However... I have a huge major issue with it and I'm finding in the last 24hrs that is SLOWLY eroding my enjoyment of the film.

Simply Canon

The didnt have little tweaks an anomalies


and THAT is what is pissing me off. I need to find an outraged fanboy to be pissed off with.

*"THAT" has been used to as a spoiler concealer

Friday, May 8, 2009

Off to see Star Trek today, i cant wait. Mainly cause I feel safe in the knowledge it CANT be worse than nemesis.

Birds, Pigs... whats next Horses?

Has swine flu hysteria passed yet?

Give it 3 more years and we shall have another mysterious animal flu related pandemic scare.

Maybe cat flu, horse flu... or dog flu (these actually exist im not making this shit up)
Either way I am sure there will be a glorious panic associated with it, as we had with SARS and Bird Flu.

The news media really do go all out for these "pandemics", scaring the shit out of the general populous . I do wonder if there will be an element of "the boy who cried wolf" to all of this. When we finally do get a global disease that will wipe a huge portion of this planet out, will people simply ignore the news thinking it simply another media disease?

life is like this

this... well this is me pissed at 6.30am

im bouncy drunk... well i was till i was stalked by a DJ

song made me maudling...

One of my all time favourite songs an has been for nearly 10ys.

It speaks to me, an every so often they lyrics seem to mean a completely new thing.

Tonight I'm unhappy with the way a friendship has gone and its just... eh it seems to be a song that speaks volumes

Here I stand head in hand
Turn my face to the wall
If she's gone I can't go on
Feelin' two-foot small

Everywhere people stare
Each and every day
I can see them laugh at me
And I hear them say

Hey you've got to hide your love away
Hey you've got to hide your love away

How can I even try
I can never win

Hearing them, seeing them
In the state I'm in

How could she say to me
Love will find a way

Gather round all you clowns
Let me hear you say

Hey you've got to hide your love away
Hey you've got to hide your love away

italiced lyrics are what speak to me
