sausages…

No, not sausages. Instead, a funny video as recommended by Nordy:

I did not make this video.

We’ve been playing this for donkeys now, but here’s the video finally. They’ve managed to make one of those videos that makes me like the song even more. Actually, there’s a radio show text-us-now in that, isn’t there?

Cheers to @Trojan_K_14 for the link. I’ve been sat here installing, deleting, partitioning and tidying up crap on my computer all day – thus the massive torrent of stuff here today. Normal (lack of) service resumes now. Have a good weekend.

We've had some of the most attractive guests on the show over the past couple of weeks.

Like beautiful Claire Byrne:

Phill stars in Spamalot, the Monty Python musical, in The Grand Canal Theatre in May.

Much love to the podcast listeners who've been fanning the flames of my fragile little ego by reviewing us up to five stars again!

5star

Thanks guys. They changed our picture on it. When did that happen? We used to have the Simpsons style pic for ages. Well, I suppose it was time for a change anyway - and I am a ride.

Since Adelle was taken from us (and so young) we've been talking about the future of the podcast, since she was the one who did all of the work on it every day. From your feedback, we've decided to keep at it. I might cut back a bit on the listless podcast-only stuff and just do the show bits, but when we've something good to do in the beginning bit, we'll do it. We won't stop entirely, we'll just do a little bit less.

And can some of you web aficionados shed some light on this for me?

Hot

How do you get onto that What's Hot list? Is it sponsored, or is it a result of reviews? And where do they get the second image from? Just out of interest.

Late to the party, my lady wife has become obsessed with Flight Control on the iPhone.

Lovely Síle was in to talk about her torrid tweeting, and I had a mess about with the webcams.



Thanks to Down With That Sort Of Thing for capturing the vid.

kylie...

Poor old double-S. People were forwarding this tweet (below) on to me the minute she sent it (probably because they know I’m a perv) but according to the paper, she’s been getting some stick from the sad bastard complaining types about it.

We tried ringing her today but she was in the middle of some news-talkin’ work so I was rebuffed by a Seoige. Again.

But I can’t believe the reaction to this. I mean, it’s a slighty rude turn of phrase to show one’s appreciation of something. Isn’t it in our dialogue? I say it all the time, but then I’m a filthmonger. I suppose when a mass-goin’ god'-fearin’ caileen-awlinn’ says it, then it’s a whole different ballgame.

As I said last week on air about the guy who sent the email of complaint about us to The Ray D’arcy Show, then sent it on to us with the preface “This is the email I sent to Ray D’arcy about your show”: there’s a type. A very small but very vocal type who feel they represent “the people of Ireland” and the need to express that perceived representation as loudly as they can. In my experience, “the people of Ireland” have more to be doing than sending bitchy tweets and emails in the middle of the night. In my experience, we’re funny, smart, daft, cheeky, easy-going people on the whole who would read that tweet as something to have a laugh about.

But you’ll always have the type. And if you spend your life catering for or worrying about that type, then you’ll be a pandering, safe, middle-of-the-road floral wallpaper merchant with no opinions or passion. And who wants to be [insert name here]?

In fairness, from her second tweet, it doesn’t look like she’s letting it get to her.

But I will be writing an email of complaint to Ray D’arcy anyway.

Ray

That’s all

Absolut Vodka are doing a series of interactive nights called Absolut You. All the details are on their FaceBook page.

As part of the promotion, they sent me a caricature of… me?

Well, I’m seriously chuffed, delighted and thrilled to be named as one of beaut.ie’s fifty fine things:

Of course, a blind man could tell you I’m hotter than Daniel Day, Airport Man and the other pair.

But Anton? Dathai? Jedward? Lightbody? BLOODY D’ARCY?!

Screen shot 2011-03-17 at 11.41.59

Well, that’s just upsetting.

In protest, I’m throwing my toys out of the pram and I shall no longer be a hot bit of stuff. You’ve had your chance ladies. And you’ve blown it.

Following on from our defeat in the table quiz last night (we came second – without cheating) one member of the jackpot-winning team hit the internet to declare his victory.

A listener, Brendan, emailed the link from Irish Poker Boards to us this morning.

What you are about to read is pretty disturbing, and tarnishes the good name and reputation of the game.
