Dublin rapper Lethal Dialect launches his new – and third – album tonight in the Opium Rooms, Wexford Street, Dublin 2. Prowlster caught up to interview [link below] the 25-year-old from Cabra West who has matured from boombap rap to soulful hip-hop. Confident, articulate and serene as all get out.

Yesterday

if they can’t dance they don’t want to be part of your revolution.

Dublin Says No sez:

“They said they couldn`t be defeated, we put it to the test. Today the people of North Dublin unleashed their secret weapon. The HOKEY POKEY.  GMC Sierra (water meter installers)  were instantly defeated as the employee ran for cover…”

Marriage in the sixties.

What was not to like?

Modern Wife, Modern Life is my exhibition running at the National Print Museum of Ireland between August and October 2015. It explores the idea of the ‘modern wife’ in 1960s Ireland as seen through the pages of women’s magazines. Please consider showing your support for the exhibition by donating on Fund It.

At the start of the twentieth century, manuals on how to be a good wife were widely available in Ireland. With the emergence of new technologies, women’s glossy magazines came to replace the traditional manual as did the advice given to newly married women and housewives in the 1960s.

The concept of being an ‘ideal wife’ became closely bound up with being a ‘modern wife’. The message was clear: a ‘good wife’ was not just beautifully presented, but also used all the latest modern devices. Her home – especially the kitchen – was an extension of her appearance and reputation. ‘Modern life’ and ‘modern wife’ became blended into the one ideal.

Anyone can be a part of this history project by loaning items from the 1960s which fit into one of the six themes of the exhibition; print culture, advice for the newly married wife, beauty and presentation, new technologies in the home; women behind the wheel and the wife who works. Rewards for contributing to the cost of producing the exhibition include reproduction images, a limited edition booklet and a private curator’s tour.

I’m an Irish photographer that takes pictures of Ireland and abroad and I’m currently having a 20% off sale on my prints at the moment. It would be great if you could let your readers know about the site at lyndacosgrave.com. If anyone mentions Broadsheet when ordering, I could make the discount 25% instead.

You might recall the competition to tie in with the release of Fury (2014).

Readers were offered a chance to drive a WW2 tank (like the one above) at the Irish Military War Museum Strinagh, Collon, Slane, Co. Meath

Runners up:

DNS: “I deserve to drive a WWII tank because I feel the need…….THE NEED to make up for other ‘inadequacies’ in my life.”

Bertie Blenkinsop: “I deserve to drive a WWII tank because. .. ah I’m not really Sher man.”

V for Viennetta: “I deserve to drive a WWII tank because then I would be full of thanks and a tank would be full of me.”

Declan:I deserve to drive a WWII tank because after being informed I’m being let go next week, I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to take this anymore!”

Spaghetti Hoop: “I deserve to drive a WWII tank because I’ve been to paradise but I’ve never been to Meath.”

Mr. P.: “I deserve to drive a WWII tank because I do a tankless job, to provide for a tankless wife, the mother of my tankless children, a drive in this tank would be a Howl(itzer).”

Winner:

DazzaMazza:
1. I drive a car like a tank (Ranault megane). It eats petrol like a tank, costs the same to insure as a tank, makes the same noise as a tank and occasionally tanks.
2. Because when I was a kid I had a fish bowl and never a tank.
3. Im Irish so I say tanks all the time.
4. I go to church every week, they guy at the top says ‘let us give tanks’ and have I ever received one? Not even close.
5. Even though Im a middle aged man with 2 kids and a family saloon, I wants my 100 nazi scalps!

Thanks all.
