Hello

OK so here we go, I think it's about time that I got back up on the proverbial horse and returned to the faithful blog. I do apologise for my lengthy absence but I had the small matter of my final year of College to deal with. But now as I write this post I … Continue reading I’m Back!!

Disney’s Paperman

Paperman

Have you seen this yet? Paperman is Disney's Oscar Nominated short film/animation. They have only just made it available on their official YouTube channel and it is most certainly worth watching.

Top 10 Tracks of the Year – All I Want

Kodaline

And so we reach the penultimate position of this chart. My selection should not come as a surprise to anyone even remotely familiar with the Irish Music Scene.

But in this stellar year for ‘films longest … Continue reading Why Skyfall Is Not A Good Film

Introducing: Le Galaxie

Le Galaxie

For those of you who thought the synth movement of the 70/80's was dead, check these guys out. Le Galaxie are an electro-synth group  who hail from Dublin.

Ireland: The slave capital of Europe

On first glance this title may appear to be a bit extreme. Especially for those of you with the fantastical view of Ireland as a green lush country over-populated with mystical little leprechaun’s, where we dance our way to the pub to battle our on going love affair with the ‘black stuff’.
