Here's Finger Mouse.

How did this ever get on telly? It's just a dude with bits of art & crafts stuck on his finger!


mmmm, foreheads...

Do you recognise this famous forehead? Yes, it's TV's Ant McPartlin, aka "PJ". True, you couldn't but NOT stare at this top-of-face.
Which leads us to your homework tonight! If you were listening to the show earlier, you would have heard us giving you instructions to stare at EVERYONE you talk to tonight - but stare at their forehead, or neck:

Good luck! And let us know how you get on tomorrow.

I love you.


gud mo'nin'

It's Monday! This is the view from my desk.

Oh happy day!


Just trying out blogging from my phone.

These made me laugh out loud.

Except for the last one, which is bit rank.

Thanks Vera.


ken lee...

Seen this yet? It's from Bulgarian Pop Idol we're told.


There's a church next to our house that's got a big green area next to it. Since the dog ran under that car we take her in there for a wee run and let her do her business because it's walled in. We always pick up after her.

Any time I've ever gone to mass in there (funerals) the priest has spent the "I say what I want in this bit" time bitching about the locals.

To be fair, he has a lot to bitch about - one day he told us the of how local yobs kept nicking the poor box, so it had to be "chemically sealed" to the church wall. I looked out the window another night and a car was burned out on the church green. So I can see how he's a little pissy.

The local residents (me included!) recently paid for gates to be put on the green area now, so it's locked up for much of the day, but one morning he practically attacked my wife for "all the dogs fouling the green". It was only when she held up the bag of dog shit to him that he walked away without apology. Idiot. I wouldn't mind but the other neighbours seem to be as diligent as we are - there's never any shite in the area.

Then this evening he was bitching and moaning at us again as we were leaving: "you won't be allowed bring your dog in here in future, I'm putting up signs". I felt like showing him a sign of my own but I got the "don't cause a row now" look from herself.

I wouldn't mind, but she gives the church cash every time those begging envelopes come through the door, and makes sure to give a few bob at Christmas and Easter - EVEN THOUGH WE DON'T EVEN PARTICIPATE IN THE BLOOMING RELIGION!

Love thy neighbour eh?



PS. Yes, I've spent the last few minutes writing about shit. Literally. Yes, I have become Victor Meldrew. And yes, the podcast is late but coming. Sorry.

cover me bad...

Hi one and all.

I'm covering for the lovely Adelle on the show for a week from tomorrow (Thursday).

I'm just about as excited as this random little chap above. Indeed!

I love you.


And want to be a popstar? Just find a suitable vinyl album cover, hold it over your face and you can join in the latest - and silliest - craze...



The boys from Apr├ęs Match managed to get cameras into the room when Marian, Joe and one G Ryan were deciding on what they were going to cover...

It's a blast from the past, around the last world cup I think, but I defy you not to laugh!

Piece and luv...

So Jodie Marsh says she is naturally Orange. She told New! magazine"This is my natural skin. Again, it's s*** I have to deal with daily - people saying, 'Look how orange she is.' I can't tell you how to use a sun bed and I don't use fake tan."

next week she'll be telling us these are natural too!

you wont see this on the late late...

Howya folks...

Check out these crazy Japanese dudes playing soccer... with Binoculars...

IT sounds weird, and not very funny... and well to be honest, its not. But I laughed my ass off...

hey baby...

Hello everyone. Check out this you tube clip. Super cute.



We're back! With a new studio and new voices!


JP's in a lather about Metal Gear Solid 4 for the PS3 - he's a massive fan of the series and we'd be suprised to see him in work for a week or two after release.

Grand Theft Auto 4 arrives in a couple of weeks:

Now watch this:

Cool huh?


I found these on my camera - how could we forget this?

And this:
and this:

Ahhh good times....

This is my first blog post by the way. It's a whole new world for me.



Google Earth is back and this time it's personal. And very, very cool. The new version is Google Earth 4.3 and it's got some swanky new features. Look at the weather effects! The 3-D buildings!

Spending hours looking up places you'll never see in real life is now even more fun.

Wrap your eyes round this:



Remember Speed Racer?

Well, he's back! Warning, severe cheese alert!

Christina Ricci's looking well though, eh? It's out in early May.


If you have a mobile phone, you'll probably love Fring. Especially if you have a phone data plan that lets you use the internet as much as you want.

You can use MSN, GoogleTalk and Skype along with loads of other internet chat services at the same time - on the same mobile phone - see and give it a go.

This software has been around for quite a while, so why am I telling you this tonight? Because they finally released a version for the iPhone! Sweet! Well, at least if you have an iPhone anyway. And by iPhone, I mean a jailbreaked one. Well, it's sweet for me.


Anyone fancy a tidy-up?
It's all change around here as we spruce up the show and the blog! And the podcast is getting a refresh on Friday.

It should get even more busy too, as Al and Ann are both joining meself, Adelle and JP in the updating duties, so anything that pops into their heads, you'll read it here right after...

Which explains the lack of activity around here over the past few days.


aha! it's the blog...

Hello there everyone.

And how are you? I have nothing really to say, but was just excited about being part of the whole Ray Foleeeey Show blog experience, so I had to say hi. In case you didn't know, I'm the one that goes around and does embarrassing stuff in offices, colleges, etc. Only in the last few minutes have I calmed down from this colour after my exploits in DIT today.


I love you.


We're back! And we have new jingles!

Blame this dude:
His name is Sandy Beech! Tee hee! Like Dusty Rhodes and Rick O'Shea!

They were all born in Meath in the early nineties, where pretend names are rife. Other people from Meath include Pierce Brosnan and Tommy Tiernan. Imagine anyone really being called Tommy Tiernan? Mad!

Sandy runs Music4, and they made all our new stuff. They're total wizards - you can check out their other stuff here if you're an anorak.


So I've been forced to pull my finger out and write something for this blog. As you can see, my finger is now out and is now typing this.

I hear Adelle's getting in on the act as well (she'll be talking about ponies and hair things), so you can look forward to three times the blogging fun from now on.

Exciting times indeed folks, exciting times.


I'm off spending a week on one of these:

Back on air on Monday, with some brilliant new sounds.

Listen in from 12!

"That Don't Impress Me Much"
by Shania Twain

I've known a few guys who thought they were pretty smart
But you've got being right down to an art
You think you're a genius-you drive me up the wall
You're a regular original, a know-it-all
Oh-oo-oh, you think you're special
Oh-oo-oh, you think you're something else

Okay, so you're a rocket scientist
That don't impress me much
So you got the brain but have you got the touch
Don't get me wrong, yeah I think you're alright
But that won't keep me warm in the middle of the night
That don't impress me much

I never knew a guy who carried a mirror in his pocket
And a comb up his sleeve-just in case
And all that extra hold gel in your hair oughtta lock it
'Cause Heaven forbid it should fall outta place

Oh-oo-oh, you think you're special
Oh-oo-oh, you think you're something else

Okay, so you're Brad Pitt
That don't impress me much
So you got the looks but have you got the touch
Don't get me wrong, yeah I think you're alright
But that won't keep me warm in the middle of the night
That don't impress me much

You're one of those guys who likes to shine his machine
You make me take off my shoes before you let me get in
I can't believe you kiss your car good night
C'mon baby tell me-you must be jokin', right!

Oh-oo-oh, you think you're special
Oh-oo-oh, you think you're something else

Okay, so you've got a car
That don't impress me much
So you got the moves but have you got the touch
Don't get me wrong, yeah I think you're alright
But that won't keep me warm in the middle of the night

That don't impress me much
You think you're cool but have you got the touch
Don't get me wrong, yeah I think you're alright
But that won't keep me warm on the long, cold, lonely night
That don't impress me much

Okay, so what do you think you're Elvis or something...
That don't impress me much!

Alright! Alright!

You're Tarzan!
Captain Kirk maybe.
John Wayne.
That don't impress me much!


Sing along!

"Tequila" by Terrorvision

Ode to Jose the curse of Cuervo,
So hard to say no though it gives one the fever,
Pretends to be friendly,
Then it's all over, over,
It's all over, over,
Pretends to be fine,
Then the curse of Tequila,

It makes me happy,
Con Tequila it feels fine,
Con Tequila when the doors are opened,
And con Tequila when they're calling time,
That's the curse of,

Sierra sunrise and Margarita,
They'll break your heart in the desert heat,
Tell you you're thirsty,
They'll tell you you're sober, sober,
It's all over, over,
They'll tell you you're fine,
Then the curse of Tequila....

If there's a lot on your mind it's there to help you forget,
To relax and rewind and leave behind the regret,
First sip makes you well before you know it it's time,
And you're saying to hell with the salt, lemon and lime,
Salt, lemon and lime, time Tequila,

That's the curse of Tequila.....

surf's up...
