A 2015 Oscars long-listed metaphor for the encroaching hegemony of giant multiples over local shops, UK animator Robert Grieves’ short is the tale of a turf war between two market vendors and the competitive trader who muscles in on their square.
The trigger-happy winners and infinitesimally off-target runners up of last Friday’s Do You Feel Lucky? competition.

I put together a video of last year’s Inspire a Generation film competition for Reachout.com. They’re still looking for entries to this year’s and the videos that are made for the competition focus on ways to get through tough times. I believe you shared the winner of the 2012 competition. Which I lost. But I digress. Entries are, for now, just a pitch for a two minute film idea, and shortlisted entries go on and make theirs. There’s quite a nice prize of €2,000 quid too
Care fore golf at all?

Included will be a blue-themed ‘best dressed ladies’ competition and a roving ‘kiss cam’ with ‘spot prizes’ on offer.

No cash, favours, ‘six packs’, etc were given for this post other than the prize.
Monkeyman: “Please send a case of McGargles to my daughters granny Eileen (mother in law) because she will be unbearable on christmas day without a fiery brew to cancel out her bitter but well rounded ‘charm’.”
J: “Please send a case of McGargles to my better half, because he really is that. He does the all the early morning shifts and bedtime routine with our cracked in the head toddler, plus he’ll need something to numb the pain while he’s been used as a toddler climbing frame.”
FergusMc: “Please send a case of McGargles to Carrie from Homeland because she is a complete gimp. I’m glad I got that off my chest.”
Thirsty: “Please send a case of McGargles to my sister Sarah because she’ll be home to Dublin from New York next week for her wedding and part of our ploy to get herself and her husband to be to move back permanently is to convince them that Irish beer really can compete with the offering in the US!”
Dangerfield: “Please send a case of McGargles to my brother’s husband because he used to drink swill but since they moved to Canada he’s moved onto craft beers so he needs something locally brewed to keep his thirst quenched while he’s home for the holliers and dealing with his gaggle of crazy sisters.”
For software? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Would you like to impress your small business-owning boss (should you have one)?
Prepare to snivel.
We have two – yes, just TWO – 1 year licenses to Microsoft Office 365 Small Business Premium, worth €150 EACH to give way as part of the #getitdoneIRL project, a Microsoft Ireland Small Businesses initiative.
It has all the features and programmes of Office, with the benefit of it being ‘in the cloud’, so it’s available wherever there is an internet. There’s also business-class email, a public website, web conferencing, and document sharing – all easy to manage, without IT expertise.
Perfect for anyone that has an old (or dodgy) copy of Office and would like an upgrade, sez Karl.
