SHINE BLOCKAS (2009)


Now strictly speaking, I think Pitchfork are a bunch of joyless, socially inadequate anoraks whose ongoing willingness to disseminate their own brattish opinions on music remains a damning incitement of the socio-behavioral utility of whatever bullies they went to school with. That’s strictly speaking. Read the rest of this entry »

NEW ADVENTURES IN BABYSITTING (CONTD.)

coffee
Okay, you’ve never witnessed another person defecate up close and you don’t want to hear about it either? That’s understandable. I can respect that. But I will say this: Play-Doh Fun Factory. Ha ha. Ruined your lunchtime, did I? Oh, I’m sorry… Welcome to my world motherfuckers. Read the rest of this entry »

funny
Not the first time I’ve posted this by any means. But it’s funny, so who cares. This is a wildly inaccurate profile of me done by a student paper in DCU in 2005. The interview really did take place. However, I dunno whether the guy’s Dictaphone malfunctioned, or if he suffered some sort of hallucinogen-induced flashback during the transcription process, but none of the quotations attributed to me are even remotely accurate.

twitter-hashclouds
Day Three of my personal Twitter revolution and – aside from a few blog updates, which are posted automatically – I remain pretty much a Tweet virgin. Its just not happening I’m afraid.

THE DEVIL MADE ME DO IT THE FIRST TIME

(second time I did it on my own...)

drunk-salaryman
It’s isn’t always easy to pinpoint the moment a session turns into a bender. The American writer P.J. O’Rourke reckons its when he finds himself carrying a drink (“a real drink, with ice cubes in a cocktail glass”) with him wherever he goes – to the bank, the supermarket or even into the shower.
