Just thought I’d share this with you. On Parnell St [Dublin], just after 3pm, a Hector look-a-like was tearing down Action on X posters at a fierce rate.
He was even wearing one of those nice red Life Institute/Youth Defence jackets. Seemed like he was on his way back to Castle Grayskull (60A Capel Street).

There’s a bit of a rukus between CrackBird and copycat restaurant BirdCage after their [BirdCage's] win for Best New Restaurant at the Northern Ireland Hospitality Awards. I Think this should get some air time. Name ‘n’ shame!

First of all, you can’t put Megadeth up against Miles Davis (that’s like comparing and contrasting Jedward and Tom Waits). And if metal isn’t taken seriously, it’s because half the time it comes across as more choreographed than an all-in wrestling match and makes your average panto look like Ibsen.
There’s more hair and make-up on show at an average metal gig than then at a Girls Aloud performance.
Apart from writing essays and giving presentations about the history of heavy metal (for the love of God!), students who go on to the second year will be shoved out to play some gigs as part of their course requirement. Whereas some students are sent into obscure, draughty rooms and given dead animals or dead bodies to practice on, heavy metal degree students will be giving it the “Hello Cleveland!” in order to earn course credits – an appalling vista.
It’s only rock ‘n’ troll.
