Or rather, MacBook, since I’m pretty set on Apple’s sleek black number. However, I still have some questions, and I’d be gratefull if people could advise me on certain matters pertaining to the purchase of said laptop. 1) Is it definetly the case that the new MacBooks offer you the choice of running either Windows [...]
This post probably won’t make much sense to those of you who don’t use WordPress, but I’ve noticed some rather odd additions to the incoming links section of my dashboard. One of them, http://kurodai123.blog36.fc2.com is written entirely in either Japanese or Mandarin, and another, http://herlinaslife.blogspot.com, seems to be a girl in Singapore’s blog. I can’t [...]
If you can’t see the picture go to my old blog to view it.
Hilarious slide show with very fitting music. Like most of the funny stuff I’ve posted that has nothing to do with Stephen Colbert, I found it on the Encyclopedia Dramatica, under the entry for “Pwned”. Just to clarify matters, and so people won’t think me a total asshole, I have to say that I don’t [...]
Yet again, Roma have got the shit end of the stick and landed in a nasty group while AC Milan, who shouldn’t even be in the tournament, have practically been given a direct ticket to the next round. The entire group draw is available to see here, on the official UEFA website. While we’re on [...]
Those of you who read my blogspot blog will remember that it was virtually taken over by Stephen Colbert in its final days. I’ve been trying to avoid posting more on him, because frankly he makes everything else I blog about seem very boring and mundane, but I couldn’t resist this short clip in which [...]
My brother received his Leaving Cert results today. He got 570 points, thus beating the total of 555 that I recieved last year. While I extend my sincere congradulations to him, I must confess I am surprised and even a shade annoyed. If I had known he was going to do so well I’m sure [...]
Iranian president Mahoud Ahmadinejad gave a rare television interview with American journalist Mike Wallace recently during which he commented on the recent Israeli destruction of southern Lebanon, America’s role in the world and his feelings on the American president. Despite some rather aggressive questioning by Wallace, Ahmadinejad was candid and engaging throughout and conveyed an [...]
This is a link to a hilariously sincere fundamentalist Christian site who are planning an expedition to capture some dinosaurs, thus proving that evolution is all silly nonsense peddled by dangerous fools. They call this very worthwhile venture “Project Pterosaur”. Appartently they’re going after pterosaurs because, and this is a direct quote, “historical and modern [...]
Featuring such stalwarts of the funny music video as Jack Black and Dave Grohl. The band is the Eagles of Death Metal, with whom Josh Homme of Queens Of The Stone Age plays drums, and the song is called, amusingly, ‘I Want You So Hard’. Enjoy.
This is neither a parody, nor anything similar, of Kevin and Michael’s superb blog, but rather a re-assessment of my own political orientation, with an apt, albeit derivative, title. Since sometime in sixth year, perhaps even prior to that, my politics started drifting rightwards in a slow yet persistent manner, or at least my ‘economic’ [...]
I watched Fox News for about an hour last night, and I must say I was rather amused. Once you abandon the notion that it’s even slightly balanced in its coverage of events then it really becomes quite entertaining. The first topic they dealt with was the current Israeli invasion of Lebanon. The anchorman, while [...]
You’re all thinking Final Fantasy VII. Well most of you are anyway, or at least those of you with an discerning appreciation of video games. However, you’re wrong. The greatest game of all time is not Final Fantasy VII, nor Metal Gear Solid, nor The Legend of Zelda, but Resident Evil 4. Everything about it [...]
The Taste of Chaos tour is coming to Ireland in November, and this year it features Senses Fail and the mighty Taking Back Sunday. Unfortunately the concert is on in the Olympia, which is unfortunatly situated in Dublin, leaving me with the wearisome prospect of yet another journey to the capital on my own in [...]
