That’s the torture room.

My Sweet Beloved – The Invitation

Who could refuse an offer like this?

Former Skindive singer Danielle Harrison Byrne (top) rises like a phoenix from the flames with her new band My Sweet Beloved.

Alongside band members Derek Byrne, Anton Hegarty and Dan Devlin, Danielle creates a haunting soundscape that grips the listener from the first note on this first single from their forthcoming self-titled album.

The atmospheric nocturnal video is by Laura Sheeran and Danielle.

Nick says: Invitation accepted.

My Sweet Beloved

The Millenium Clock was unveiled on March 15, 1996


Who knows where the slime goes?

Dublin 1916 Walking Tours write:

Rooting for something else I just found this postcard from the Millenium Clock. It was a digital clock floating beneath the surface of the Liffey and the idea was you could see how many seconds it was before the year 2000.

Cause it was filthy the clock got the name The Time in The Slime. And when they removed it (cause it was so dirty) it got the name The Gap in The Crap!

It cost 20 pence for the postcard and the space left when they took the machine away from O’Connell Bridge was soon filled with the fake bronze memorial to Fr Pat Noise who “died when his carriage plunged into to The Liffey”.





Play ‘All is Illusion’!

Inner World collects chants and mantras from the Tibetan spiritual leader and sets his words against music that was recorded by New Zealand musicians Junelle and Abraham Kunin, practicing Buddhists.

Hang on.

Wasn’t he in Buddha Beyond?


I’ll get my robe.
