Stomach Party

September 26, 2008

I’ve been a bit quiet for a while as my lack of blog entries demonstrate. My reasons vary from studying for exams Im never going to pass anyway, looking for and starting new work and most recently my sister’s wedding. An Irish wedding is bad enough but imagine 80 Irish people in a small village in Tuscany for one week. Without going into details of wht kind of a week I had I’d like to play this video by an American comedian called Jim Breur about the effects of mixing your drinks.  The Scottish accent aside I think it’s a hilarious routine.

Bill Cosby did some good comedy routines also on the subject which you can find on Youtube also. I just thought it was appropriate for me as I am still recovering from a crazy yet memorable week.

banned music

April 23, 2008

For a list of records banned by the BBC and their justifications check out http://www.rocklistmusic.co.uk/banned.html

Richie Kavanagh – “Aon Focal Eile” Banned in Britain because the first syllable of “Focal”, (the Irish for “Word”) sounded too much like “Fuck”...

I won’t torture you by adding the video. If you want to check it out on YouTube feel free. Richie Kavanagh’s contribution to the Irish music scene is infamous. Other hits of his include: “Mickey’s Bucking Ass” and “Pussy Pussy Cat”.

Paul Mc Cartney- Give Ireland Back to the Irish.This was a song he wrote and recorded after Bloody Sunday. Banned for obvious reasons.

Some of the songs on the list are hilarious.
