Brians model boat "The U.S.S Contribution" was placed in the local bar today. High above the crowd she stands with ancor away and loaded with barrels of whiskey, she watches over the civilians with a steady eye. Lovely
With a round of applause from the crowd Brian laced the ship where she will lay in wait for the rest of her days, or until some cunt robs it.
Go on the Caso, a lot of time went into her ( Not Siobhan ) LOL
Im proud of you !!
Now Fuck off !! (in brick tops voice )
A piano, drums and a voice, that's it, so simple but so deadly, A tune from Kate Nash from 2007 on Jools Holland. You cant help but like this song but the pumpkin song was kinda shit. Hope she comes out with some new stuff soon. Go on Kate ya tramp ya !!!
I won't lie, I didnt like Bloc Partys latest album but I love "Silent Alarm". When I first got Xbox 360 I downloaded the CD into the console and I would play "Need for speed Underground" while listening to "Silent Alarm". You wouldn't think that the song would go well with a fast paced driving game but if you listen to the album and not the stripped down acoustic version you will see what I mean.

One of the things I like about radio controlled trucks is the fact that you can up grade all your stuff and create your own designs. In the pictures you see my Traxxas Rustler but I changed it to look like a kind of mad army pick up.
I bought the body as a clear shell and I came up with the army theme.
Usually when you by a shell it comes with decals from the company that advertises the make of shell but I came up with an idea to make my own decals.
I bought sticker paper in Staples, sticker paper is paper that lets you print your desired picture, then peel the backing and hey presto you have a sticker. The only problem is that the ink runs, so after printing i covered the desired picture or text with two inch scotch tape which keeps the water out and the ink in ( so cliche ).
Then a steady hand with an exacto knife and you can have whatever decal you like.
For my truck I went with the old Spitfire air plane with it's intimidating teeth and flattering 1920's pin up girl, also I added the Army star.
I'm still not finished but I think it's the best one I have created yet.
I'm planning to enter competitions when I get me skills down.
Well holy Jaysis, first Marathon became Snickers, then we lost Opal Fruits to the dreaded Starburst and now even the auld Mckado is lost to the advertising Mogul man in the corner office.
What about the years we heard the song
"Kimberly Mckado and Coconut Cream, some one you love can love some one, That's just a memory now....what a load of bollox.
Actually before doing a wee bit of research I always thought that the "Kimberly" was the make of the biscuit company, I didn't realize that "Kimberley" "Mckado" and "Coconut Cream" where three different bickies.
Whatever I suppose I must be getting old !!
Leave it to fellow Ardee man Peter Duff to post this awesome mash up by "overdub".
Almost a perfect combination, just like carrots and parsnips. Enjoy.

Jon and Ponch never once pulled a weapon on anyone during the entire series!
Jon's unit ID was "Seven Mary Three"; Ponch's was "Seven Mary Four".
After CHiPs new episodes left the air, the show went into syndication and was called, "CHiPs Patrol".
Erik Estrada's character was originally supposed to be of Italian descent with the name Poncherelli. When Estrada was cast, they simply changed the last letter to an "o".
Randi Oakes joined the CHiPs cast in the third season. In episode #35 (2nd season), however, she first appeared on the series as a car thief named Kim! Randi was a top fashion model before becoming an actress. She didn't remain in showbiz long after CHiPs ended but it was a delight to see her on 3 episodes of "Fantasy Island" and 2 episodes of "The Love Boat"!
Erik Estrada actually got in an extremely serious motorcycle accident while filming one episode but, thankfully, he recovered!
The chase scenes and multi-vehicle crashes were filmed on freeways that were under construction but almost finished.
There was an actor in the pilot episode named Jonathon Baker! That was the nephew of CHiPs' creator, Rick Rosner. Jonathon played a little boy that the guys stopped for riding his bicycle on a highway. And, of course, he was also the source of Larry Wilcox's character's name!
In order to keep production costs down, the patrol cars used on CHiPs were used ones that they bought at auctions. If you know your cars, you'll see that they are always 3-5 years older than the date that the episode was produced.

What does 'CULCHIE' mean?
The Oxford English Dictionary defines a Culchie as :
"One who lives in, or comes from, a rural area; a (simple) countryman (or woman), a provincial, a rustic."
The 20TH ANNUAL CULCHIE FESTIVAL will be held on OCTOBER 23-25 OCT 2009 in Ballyjamesduff. This festival in quite the spectical with such events as Camel Racing ( Capall na gCulchie ),The wellie toss and The Great Honda Step-Thru Run.In 2008 The Step-Thru Run achieved a new Irish Record with 481 Honda Step-Thru Bikes. Basically The Step-Thru run is a clatter of culchies all riding there Honda 50s at the same time, a real crowd pleaser.
Rules of Competition
1 No Dubs allowed to enter.
2 No Women allowed to enter
3 Contestants can be married or single, age 21 or over.
4 It would definitely be considered an asset if you were able to entertain at will, at any time of the day or night, with a story, song, musical instrument or a dance or just be a general character.
If you u fancy a mad weekend head to Ballyjamesduff Co.Cavan for The Culchie Festival.
For those who have yet to stumble across The Big Pink’s somewhat gargantuan blast, imagine The Teardrop Explodes being played by MBV whilst Suicide man the mixing desk; a concoction of sounds that manages to be both affecting and tooth-tremblingly huge at the same time.
Interpol. A name generally associated with international espionage, covert operations, and distant ports of call. Yet since Interpol, the band, swept up listeners with their 2002 Matador debut 'Turn On The Bright Lights,' the moniker has gained new associations as well. It still carries global recognition. For the past two years, one could hardly open a magazine, turn on a radio or television, or step into a nightclub, without hearing Interpol's dark, gripping songs or seeing their countenances. Despite this high level of media exposure, the quartet never lost the tension and complexity that won them acclaim worldwide.

The Traxxas Rustler is some yoke boy ! 45mph until I get the new engine, it will then do seventy plus mph. I custom sprayed the body and got a seven cell battery which took the bus from 35 mph to 45 mph. She's a hell of a yoke ta move, sure she'd cut the legs fuckin clean from under ya. The Ardee accent really shows through in the video which adds the the schpeed of the bus !! Ya need a schteady composure to operate such an animal of a yoke.

Congratulations President Obama on winning The Pea's Prize. Mr President, a huge fan of the mushy pea won the award for eating mushy peas every day for five years solid, unlike his mushy feces I imagine. So a toast to you Mr President but I must ask the question, If your eating the Mushy peas with the spuds and sausages, is Michelle eating the beans ? It must make for an interesting bathroom experience. Well at least you wont have to pay to get the White House pebble dashed.

In New York one of the things that piss's me f is the amount of adds in a half hour show. Usually the title song plays, then an ad then in a half hour show there is about three ads altogether.With the torturous ads in the U.S it is a welcome to have an auld Scotsman involved. One of my fave ads.. "Think with your dipstick Jimmy".
Local Ardee man Ged Murray (Doctor Murrays son) and his friend Ian Duffy just finished college, having studied film for the past few years. They must be doing something right as there graduation film is in the New York International Independent Film and Video Festival (nyfilmvideo.com) from the 22nd to 29th October.
The basic plot of the movie is as follows. A shy charity worker must overcome his social awkwardness, fear of needles and, above all, massive blood loss to win the affections of a girl that works in the blood bank.
True to form women will bleed you dry.I am dying to see the movie and hope to attend and catch up with Ged.
Below are the details, be there or be a rhombus triangle.

Right on Dynamite is a three man rock ‘n roll combo, currently residing in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. Dan, Nicky, and Jon have been mates since high school, playing together in a couple of other outfits before finally taking the reins themselves as the mighty RoD. They’ve been making a righteous racket ever since, busting out exceptionally addictive guitarpop fuelled by scrappy energy, sly wit, and a seemingly endless supply of hip-shakin’, hand-clappin’ hooks.
