Brevity Is The Whole Of It

Published by under Blog

Image Not FoundLike Polonius, I probably spend more time talking about how important it is to keep things brief than actually practicing the words I’ve preached. The photobloggers do not. Often they manage to encapsulate a moment, a single second of perfect time and I am in awe. What day is day, night night, and time is time, were nothing but to waste night, day, and time; therefore, since brevity is the soul of wit…I will be brief. Go here and be impressed. I particularly love the context Phil gives to the pictures.

Could This Be The Greatest Gig Ever?

Published by under Blog,Music

Okay, I think I’ve made it abundantly clear how much I enjoyed the Tom Waits gig. It was incredible – the greatest concert I’ve ever been to.


On October 14th there is a special gig in aid of Amnesty International in Vicar Street and two of my all time favourite artists are performing together.

It’s Duke Special vs. The Divine Comedy!!! I can’t tell you how excited I am. I have been a Neil Hannon fan for as long as I can remember and Duke is just godlike:

Duke Special, Lottie and Darren

Tickets go on sale on Wednesday 13th and are €29 each. I will be going. Who’s joining me? Let me know and we can all make a night of it.

More info on Duke’s website or on

A huge congratulations to Mr Anthony. He passed his driving test and has thrown away the L plates. Well done, mate!

I can’t drive. I have no real urge to drive. I’ve never been one of those blokes who was into their cars. I’ve never really needed to drive and while I probably rely on Lottie a little too much, I don’t think she minds (maybe!).

I will get around to it at some stage. It’s not fair to have Lottie drive us everywhere. But…I just don’t want to. Do I have to learn how to drive?
