Following the launch of not so long ago, some great publicity has been forthcoming over the last few days.

Yesterday, an article appeared in the Sunday Tribune, coutesy of Miss Una Mullally, about the website with comments from the Road Safety Authority's Noel Brett.

Also this morning Niall was on the Ray D'Arcy show on Today FM, with Marty Whelan on 2FM and also on Tipp FM and NewsTalk.

While there are some who will rubbish this site (one person on Ray's show thought that it was a forum for people to record their bad driving and become famous through the site for it - nope, that is what YouTube is for) I think its a great idea.

I always feel that we, the Irish, are shocking at issues like this. When something happens we never feel we can make a difference and wait for someone else. When someone does decide to do something all we do is give out about them and say that they are never happy.

So I say, feck ye bugrudgers and embrace this site. It it makes even 2 people a week think more about their driving habits then its better than none.

Five Albums

Ok, before I start I am not on about the band 5 (Get up, when your down) but this band may well come into your reckoning if you so wish. What I am on about here, is just something based of a conversation I had a few years ago with my sister. We were in HMV or Virgin or somewhere and we were on about certain albums that should be in a persons music collection. You know, there are some albums that most people have and if they don't, they should.

I was thinking about this again yesterday as I was also thinking about which 5 movies should be in a persons collection. So without further ado here doth be mine choices (in no particular order):

1. Red Hot Chili Peppers - Blood Sugar Sex Magik
2. Nirvana - Nevermind
3. Guns 'N' Roses - Appetite For Destruction
4. Radiohead - The Bends
5. Massive Attack - Mezzanine

1. Braveheart
2. Monty Python and The Holy Grail
3. Blade
4. Star Wars (4, 5 and 6 - otherwise known as the first three movies - and yes this may be cheating but I dont care. These should be together)
5. Shrek

To be honest, I don't pretend to be either a movie or music buff (don't really watch many movies or listen to much music) but these are my choices. And as I never really had much of an interest in music prior to 1987 thats why there is nothing older there.

There are other albums that I think most people have like Fatboy Slim (We've come a long way baby), Moby (Play) and others, but I'm not sure if they are really that influential but were rather just really popular at the time.

So..what would your choices be??

Update Time

I know its been a while since my last update on this Blog. There have been 2 main reasons for this:

1) I have been trying to find a job
2) I have been thinking about this blog.

The first item is a slow moving one with little happening at the moment. To be honest, I am enjoying my time off as it is the first proper break I have had in over 5 years. When I finished work on the Friday, the Saturday morning was the first time in over 5 years that I woke up and didnt have 2 phones beside my bed. Do I miss my work phone? Not on your nelly. Nice having peace for a short while.

For the second item, I think I need to cut back on my, lets say, colourful language. And that means the "F" list has to go...not completely though, just renamed. So Ter, you might make the "Annoyed Me List" (just doesnt have the same ring to it).

Other than that, not much happening in these neck of the woods.

Feel free to leave a comment to spice up me life.
