    European and Local elections 2019

    yeah, in Hogan's case. Don't remember McCreevey. But I distinctly remember both being sent to Europe because they were acting the bollox at home.

    European and Local elections 2019

    yeah, definitely. She must not have the fight in her anymore for day-to-day Dail shite. when you consider that MEP is considered the 'naughty step' for some of the major parties (Phil Hogan, Charlie McCreevey), you'd have to think it's looked on, somewhat, as a handy number.

    European and Local elections 2019

    yeah, that makes sense. Except I can't bring myself to vote for any party. All the main ones are cunts. And you might as well be voting independent as any of the small ones. The indos form alliances (ie: the speaking group) once elected so they're not completely useless. And voting for someone...

    Robert Forster. Amazing show. Loved every minute of it.

    European and Local elections 2019

    the only 2 people I can see myself giving a vote to are Gannon and Alice Mary Higgins. Fuck the rest of them. As for the local elections, other than the goons gawping down at me from the lamp-posts, and for whom the hatred is real, and growing by the minute, I don't know what the fuck is going...

    European and Local elections 2019

    hes ex-shinners. Didn't someone try and shoot him once? he'd be the type of lad I'd vote for (wouldn't vote for shinners, but no probs with ex-shinners) cos he'd deffo be the type to know what's going on 'on the ground'. A good gah man too.

    Jaysus cycling!

    yep on the deliveroos. But I've only seen them on speed-limited bikes and have had absolutely no problems with any of them.

    Jaysus cycling!

    all e-bikes? or un-regulated ones? The big problem here is there's no real law governing the unregulated ones. Like, I'm sure people would be willing to pay something in tax and insurance (I'd imagine the cost would be low), but it's not possible. If they do bring in something like that, I...

    Jaysus cycling!

    the speeds are limited here, legally, to 25km. At 25km, assistance cuts out and you're on your own. From what I can gather it's easy to disable the limiter and I've seen lads in suits tearing up the cycle lanes at 45km/h while I'm trying to pull away from lights like a snail. I'm all for the...

    Jaysus cycling!

    a friend of mine did that. Found he had too many problems with parts going, wearing out components, etc, so decided to go back to a conventional road bike.

    2019 albums worth a listen.....

    The Ballet have a new album out today. It's really lovely. Very strong Magnetic Fields vibe from it I remember about 10-15 years ago, possibly via myspace, sending away for their self-released Mattachine album, which I don't think ever got a general release. It was great, but I never heard a...

    Upcoming Gigs of Interest

    it's on hawkins st (if it's the place I'm thinking of), so around the corner from d'olier st. Just by the Luas tracks there, opposite where the old screen cinema was (and that horrible hawkins house building).

    What television series are you currently making your way through?

    haven't seen any of the Giro yet. Will try and make time today to scan the stages and pick out the ones worth making time to watch. It's usually the best GT of the year. Am happy to let the Tour completely pass me by. My interest in cycling just isn't what it was. I'd normally be glued to every...

    What television series are you currently making your way through?

    I loved Glow too, but then I'm a bit of an Alison Brie fanboy, so am gonna like anything she's in. I watched Black Summer over the past couple of weeks, mostly on planes or buses, on my phone. It was perfect for watching that way. Not much dialog, very suspenseful, and very well shot. If you...
