Mothballs

Tue, 19 Aug 2008 15:30:00 +0000

After watching so many bloggers fall to the wayside due to other commitments - its eventually my turn. Well almost.
I'm going to be travelling the world and thus my greed for link love will be somewhat lessened. So I'm hereby serving my notice. Blogging on this here site will be extremely rare, but expect some nuggets every now and then.(image)

However if you fancy following my escapades around the globe do so over here. Me and the wife plan to blog our journey.

Smell you all later.

Meteroic Morons - €720 to roam for a year

Mon, 18 Aug 2008 09:43:00 +0000

So as you probably know I'm off around the world next week for a year. So I'm trying to tie up a few loose ends. Today came the turn of making sure my mobile would work while in some far flung destinations.

Background
3 months ago I changed from meteor bill pay to meteor pay as you go - So I wouldn't be paying a monthly fee as I don't intend to be using the phone too often. I have roamed with meteor many times including to countries that are not on their list

The Call
So I called customer service and spoke with Lindsey who explained that I would need to go into a meteor shop to register my credit card details, fill out a direct debit form and pay €60 top up before my roaming would be activated and I would be able to roam out side the list for the next 30 days.

Although this is awkward, it is not ridiculous. Apparently my contract with them as a Bill paying customer isn't sufficient to justify my roaming with them now as a Pre pay customer.

The ludicrous part is... they will want me to do this every 30 days. So when I repeated that fact I will not be able to go to a meteor shop every 30 days while thousands of miles away - I was informed I could fax the form to them every month. But would still have to top up by €60 to get the roaming activated for the next 30 days.

So for 12 months roaming they would charge me €720 whether I spend it or not.

Update - while trying to get released form meteor Carmel put me on hold for 5 mins then hangs the call up, despite having confirmed my details an accessing my account she in unable to return a call.

Coffee Stirrer Art

Tue, 12 Aug 2008 11:25:00 +0000

A simple idea has turned into very strange art - again.On the third week of January 2007, while getting a coffee at work, I placed 3 coffee stirrers in a simple pattern on the notice board.Over the next few days this took on a life of its own. And developed into a wonderful display - I'm calling it Art.So I've started again. And guess what it has started again.Lets follow it...My Exibit 14-07-08Stage 1... 15-07-08A nice progression towards ancient symbolism or maybe a lean towards Asian writing stylesStage 2... 16-07-08A slight adjustment leaves a symbol which to me seems less elaborate.Stage 3... 17-07-08I feel like the project has become someones joke. A simple but yet evil face has been added. First tempted to remove it, but I will allow this, it could become like Easter Island.Stage 4... 18-07-08I'm happy with the turn away from faces. This person has used other artefacts (postcards) from the notice board to give the project a cartoonish feel. Also note the change on the top right - almost brining back stage 2.Stage 5... 22-07-08A return to normal. The postcards were removed by someone and they left their mark.I prefer this kind of development.Stage 6... 23-07-08At first I liked this progression nice small separate works, but when looking at it on the camera the obvious YMCA comes through. I do like the art on the right.Stage 7... 24-07-08Someone took time and effort with this. Again the separate art theme is coming out, unlike the first expiriment where there was a great growth of the original. I wonder is there a hidden story or message.Stage 8... 25-07-08This is my absolute favourite. Plain angles making unknown images.Stage 9 25-07-08 - 08-08-08The above installation was resident for some time only to be replaced by this...Stage 10... 08-08-08 - 12-08-08Some lovely new symbols as intricate as stage 2. Definitely my new favourite. However the noticeboards primary function seems to have been reclaimed. Maybe the art was changed before the notices were added, maybe they were added as part of the art piece. But I feel the best work has been vandalised.Should I remove the notices and allow for more developments or should I end the project now?Please leave you preference in the comments[...]

OK so I blame/thank you Missy Lidl Treats.
(image) So me and Mrs went all guns ho to the Lidls in the Cork region, to no avail. We gave up after a few weeks trying. Then like a bolt from above, last sunday, while picking up some bread and cheese we found a shelf full of it. In a panic we bought 12 bottles. On the way home we realised neither of us had tried it. So we blamed you. Then we tried it now we thank you.

Only 10 bottles left now.
Thanks.

Tom Waits Gig Review - Dublin 3 Friday Night

Tue, 05 Aug 2008 12:22:00 +0000

After much talking, hoping and praying the Friday night gig eventually arrived. I had poor full-priced seats which meant I could only see half the stage - Tom, the sax, and the bongo's. Still I don't feel hard done by. As you know I'm a big fan so I'm always going to be biased. I thought the performance was fantastic definitely as good as I'd hoped if not better, even if he constantly spoke with a really annoying character voice. The sound was fairly poor, there seemed only to be speakers at the edge of the stage so it was always mono, and form where I sat always only from my right ear, but it was loud and I was there.The event was well organised, there was no hassle of any sort (from what I saw), most of the staff wore suits which made a change form burly security men in neon safety jackets. It did have a theatre feel throughout the night.I'm not old, but I felt there should have been an interval. People wanted to get more booze, the bar seemed to want to sell more booze, and there were allot of people heading to the toilets. It was nice that you were not allowed back to your seat until between songs (adding to the theatre vibe) but with an interval the show may have been better. Alternatively it would have been great to be able to stand for the gig, I'd have loved to have danced moved my body to some of the tunes.After a the second encore, we were treated to what seemed like a unscheduled 2 further songs. After which Tom left the stage with a genuine smile on his face, be it the last night of the tour or the fact that he had gotten round after round of rapturous applause. The crowd wouldn't let up, there was a long pause where hopes seemed to raise that he may return for another (4th) encore but after a few minutes the signal was given. A man we hadn't seen before came on stage with a cordless drill in hand - amazing I though what can/will Tom do with that, but alas the pa started playing music and the house lights ruined my imagination and the man with a drill started to rip the set apart.I slowly filled out into the dark rain filled night but I was left feeling whole. A few days later I'm still have that wholesome feeling.The mirrorball hat clad rendition of Eyeball Kid, Tom Traubert's Blues, I'll shoot the moon, The Heart of Saturday, Lost in The Harbour night, The rainbow in the sky when My bladder decided to explode. It was worth every penny and then some.More chatter on the gigsAnd now some videosVery short excerpt Eyeball Kid - Dublin 30.07.08Eyeball Kid - Paris 24.07.08I'll shoot the moon - Dublin 30.07.08[...]

Ah Jagermeister

Fri, 04 Jul 2008 08:13:00 +0000

Oh Jagermeister how I love thee.The day we met.It was my 19th Birthday, a friendly affair in Lebowskis* of Marlboro Street. There just happened to be a Jagermeister promotion that night. Buy one get one free, but the first was reduced to £1.50. A great idea to serve them in Test Tubes.Photo owned by arting 615 (cc)My first friend shows up.Me: "Hey buddy, thanks for coming."Him/Her: "I got you 2, coz there so cheap"Me: "era there was no need, I'm just glad your here". "I see you got 2 free, set them over there... oh wait testtubes"Him/Her: "Go"So I did, 4 shots later more friends arrive. By the end of the night, the friendly bar staff had given me a test tube rack to help lessen the madness. And it did to be fair, it did slow me down. Oh I'll never forget the first half of that night. I'll never remember the second.I decided the next day that straight Jagermeister was not the drink for me. We had some brief encounters, fly by night for years. Until a stag night in Skull. I was introduced to you again. This time you came to me in a different form - a form that didn’t have any bells or whistles, no cheap friendly promotions, no rounded glass to prevent us from standing. What you did come with? It was half a glass of high octane energy juice. Jagermeister dipped in Red Bull, tomorrows energy today. Whack. We were friends again. I can’t blame you solely for the great time that night, you were not alone in my liver, you had many more friends that night.A short few weeks later my 25th Birthday rolls around. The Head Of The River* this time. JagerBombs* all round. "My round say the bar keep". A nice touch really. You dont get that much anymore. He also had to pop out to buy another bottle of Jager to keep us in the bar. I say 26 my now-wife says 24 -either way I ended up in a paddling pool on the Everyman Theatre's floor.A few rare nights, a few sore mornings. Only brief Affairs.Knock*, April 12th, someone decides that the head table would like a round of Jager bombs. Oh thank you Dessie, it was almost a year since I'd heard the click of the glass hitting glass and the rush of a dark sugary liquid gush down my troat. There like Pringles, once you drop you really can’t stop. I was sore the next morning, afternoon, evening, night and next morning. Man I'm getting old.But to prove my youth, birthday 27 comes around. I try to beat my record 26/24. Same place as last time, but they've changed the name and the staff, it’s the Bierhaus now. Big Dave doesn’t serve with the same attitude as his predecessor. Maybe he's the reason I come short. 22 Bombs, I remember I was able to feel my heart.Oh how I have missed you, Jager.Its nearly been a year again. 28 is comming round. I think I'll try again this year, I'm glad to still be around.Why the memories Jager on bebothanks jazz biscuit for your CC image tool[...]

The Point Theatre

Thu, 03 Jul 2008 08:37:00 +0000

(image)
So after its refurbishment, the venue previously know as The Point, is renamed The O2. O2 have spent millions to be the sole sponsors of the high tech converted warehouse.
Do they not realise we are not as fickle as the British when it comes to place names. Everyone knows of The O2 Arena in London, but do you realise it was the doomed Millenium Dome before O2 stepped in to save the day.

Will the Irish take the name change on the chin. I for one will never go to The O2 it will always be The Point.
Eddie Vedder @ The Point 2000:
The story begins with a farmer who had a son and a horse. But one day the horse runs away to be with some other wild horses. The farmer is stuck with no horse. One day the horse comes back and brings some friends with him so now the farmer has 6 horses. A friend says how great it was that even though he had no horses for a while now he got 6 and the farmers reply was: "Yeah, whatever!"

Then his son has and accident and breaks his leg. Now the farmer is stuck with no help. A war breaks out and all the young people where drafted except for his son due to the broken leg. The same friend says how great it was that even though his son broke his leg, he didn't have to go off and fight in the war and his reply was: "Yeah, whatever!"

Then Eddie asks the crowd "So what's the point?" Eddie's reply: "It's this really cool place to play in Dublin!"

That kind of story just doesn't have the same punchline when it is...
"So what's The O2?"
The only reply:
"A corporate scam to sell communication devices"
