Click here for some weird laws. Our Bertie's getting rid of a few of ours, including one where it's illegal for a jewish person to own a suit of armour in Ireland.

And here's a good book on all the gas. Clicky!

How excited are we to be doing the show from Inis Mór this weekend? VERY BLOODY EXCITED, THAT'S WHAT!

It's the inaugural Tedfest 2007 all this weekend on the island, with a lovely girl competition, song for Europe, Father Jack cocktail evening and more.

And THE RAY FOLEY SHOW is live from the 'fest on Friday afternoon!
We've got a cracker planned - even picked up our outfits today from the Dublin Costume Co:

Sexy or what? Yes, it's or what.

And His Grace, JP takes a tour of Today FM's offices:



Bless you.

moans...

www.dataprotection.ie if those phone people are pissing you off.

And here's that ntl letter:

Hi,

I am emailing my sentiments to you as each time I try to ring I cannot get through. I am absolutely appaled at the way you conduct business and the customer service you provide.

Getting NTL in the first place was a struggle, but I hoped it would improve from there. Unfortunately I was mistaken. When I initially called to have NTL connected in my home, it took a long time to get through, and when I did, the girl hung up on me as she couldn't understand me. I tried to explain to her that I had just moved into a new rental property and wanted to sign up as a new user, but as the previous tenant had gotten NTL in the past she told me I couldn't before hanging up the phone.
I got through a second time, after using up a lot of phone credit, I was talking to a nice girl, who set up the account and provided me with a date for installation, which I noted in my diary. I also asked her the terms of the package, as she had mentioned as an introductory offer I would receive additional channels free for a six month trial, to see if we wanted to add them to the package after. I asked if this was a set price and she said there shouldn't be any change, yet apparently, your prices increased 5 days later.
When it came to the day for installation, my housemate took the morning off work as I was told it would be installed in the morning. I awaited the text message which never arrived. Later that morning, I recieved a phone call to tell me that my NTL would be installed the following day and was told that I had made a mistake, which I certainly hadn't, after jotting it down as the date was set. As a result, my housemate had to take the full day off work, unpaid, because of a mistake on your behalf and somebody arrived that afternoon.
We recieved no documentation on the terms of our specific NTL contract, my friend had to sign a piece of blank paper to say it was installed, and that was it. Later in the post I received a letter to confirm my direct debit details, yet it mentioned nothing about the money being debited in advance of the service being provided. I am not comfortable paying for a service which has not yet been satisfactorally provided, and to date, it has not been the least bit satisfactory.
Our NTL has not been working since Tuesday of last week and I have attempted to call NTL on numerous occasions, each time being put on hold for at least ten minutes. It is an absolute disgrace. As your freephone number isn't accessible from mobiles I have had to use a fortune of credit, as I do not have a landline to call from. I tried many times to get through, as have my housemates, and it's the same rubbish every time, the kind of appaling customer service you wouldn't expect from such a large company.
Then to my amusement I recieved an invoice in the post for services as far as the February coming. I am contacting my bank and doing everything in my power to block any debit being made from my account by NTL, as the service I signed up for has not been provided. If you have any queries you can ring me for a change on 086xxxxxxx.
Sincerely,
Anna B


Ouch!

Doug Rich has it all...

If you, like me are an Eddie Izzard fan, you'll be delighted to hear he's about to star in a new TV show on the FX network in the states. Co-starring is Minnie Driver, but don't let that put you off.

Click here to see the trailer.

It starts in March over there and we should HOPEFULLY get it here soon after. Lookin' good!

We've been playing the Fall Out Boy tune "This Ain't A Scene, It's An Arms Race" on the show. But what the hell are they saying in it?

Find out more here:



Or here:

Fall Out Boy This Ain't A Scene, It's An Arms Race Lyrics

I am an arms dealer
Fitting you with weapons in the form of words
And I don't really care, which side wins
As long as the room keeps singing
That's just the business I'm in

This ain't a scene, it's a god damn arms race
This ain't a scene, it's a god damn arms race
This ain't a scene, it's a god damn arms race
I'm not a shoulder to cry on, but I digress

I'm a leading man
And the lies I weave are oh so intricate, oh so intricate
I'm a leading man
And the lies I weave are oh so intricate, oh so intricate

I wrote the gospel of giving up
(You look pretty sinking)
But the real bombshells have already sunk
(pre-madonnas of the gutter)
At night we're painting your trash gold while you sleep
Crashing not like hips or cars
No, more like p-p-p-parties

This ain't a scene, it's a god damn arms race
This ain't a scene, it's a god damn arms race
This ain't a scene, it's a god damn arms race
[ Lyrics found on http://www.metrolyrics.com ]

Bandwagon's full. Please, catch another

I'm a leading man
And the lies I weave are oh so intricate, oh so intricate
I'm a leading man
And the lies I weave are oh so intricate, oh so intricate

All the boys who the dance floor didn't love
And all the girls whose lips couldn't move fast enough
Sing until your lungs give out

This ain't a scene, it's a god damn arms race
This ain't a scene, it's a god damn arms race
(Now you)
This ain't a scene, it's a god damn arms race
(Wear out the groove)
This ain't a scene, it's a god damn arms race
(Sing out loud)
This ain't a scene, it's a god damn arms race
(Oh, oh)
This ain't a scene, it's a god damn arms race

I'm a leading man
And the lies I weave are oh so intricate, oh so intricate
I'm a leading man
And the lies I weave are oh so intricate, oh so intricate

stuff...

Some stuff we've been doing on the show while I've been incommunicado:

Cleopatra, comin'atcha. Turns out Cleo was a minger. Her bloke was a bit of a dog too. Who knew?

We also had a talk about Ticketmaster clamping down on the touts for the upcoing Damien Rice and and The Who gigs this summer.

This smart dude will throw in a ticket for the biggest rugby event of the year - all you have to do is buy his '04 BMW. Click here for more...

Does Disney not like gays in nun outfits? They shut down a Sister Act live show in Galway, to be performed by the gay soc in NUIG

But it turns out Disney's cool with gays, just not cool with people infringing on their copyrighted work.

Daily updates resume from here on.
