Cazals

Thursday, June 29th, 2006

Cazals
A band that seems to have been around for a while but are new to my ears are Cazals. This London bred group seems to have gone largely under the mainstream radar even after touring with The Rakes, The Paddingtons and even Babyshambles.

Their Debut album COMFORTABLE SILENCE was released on the 8th May 2006 and you can also download tracks from their previous releases POOR INNOCENT BOYS and BEAT ME TO THE BONE.

Ill leave up to you to decide who they remind you of and who they take their influences from, all I can say is that you should never judge a band by the lead singers’ tasher.

POOR INNOCENT BOYS
1. Poor Innocent Boys
2. My Ex-Valentine (demo)
3. What Of The Future (demo)

BEAT ME TO THE BONE
1. Beat Me To The Bone
2. Bounder & A Cad

GARDA 30 DAY SPEEDING TICKET RALLY

It was all a load of cak…see here

The Gardai are starting up a 30 day speeding ticket rally. Apparantly, every Garda assigned to this has to hand out 1 ticket every 20 minutes.

Heard this through the Grapevine and I don’t know if it’s common knowledge or not but be warned!…… and remember you heard it here first…

Saturday 1st July, the Gardai will launch a 30 day speeding ticket frenzy. The state estimates that over e250,000 will be generated in speeding tickets. 100,000 will go to pay Garda over time. There will 50 Gardai on duty at all times patrolling on the following:

M7/N7 from Naas to Portlaoise
N4 to Mullingar from Dublin
N6 to Athlone
N81 to Baltinglass
N11 to Wexford
M50
Dublin – Drogheda

Their will be additional Gardai assigned to ‘flying squads’ – mobile units to patrol all other routes in Dublin, Wicklow, Kildare, Meath, Laois, Westmeath, Offaly, Louth and Kilkenny

With so many Blogs out there, it’s sometimes hard to know where to start. I know half the fun sometimes involves just browsing random Blogs but when you want quality Blogs with excellent content and regular updates, on a variety of different topics its hard to find better than 9rules.

I myself am subscribed to their Designand Musicfeeds. The Design one in particular I find a great resource for design trends, tips, news, advice, etc…

He’s a Dancin’

Im a Dancin’

Twenty Major pictured at St Fintan’s Cemetery in Sutton over the weekend.

It is not clear weather the picture was taken on Saturday or Sunday, but being as eager as he was to dance on the grave of our former Taoiseach, it’s likely to have been taken early Saturday Morning.

Adopt A Country For Your County

Friday, June 9th, 2006

Flying around on email…but here it is anyway….

GROUP A GERMANY – CORK
Not everyone’s favourite team. Behemoths of their sporting worlds and can
go a long way without anyone really noticing
Compatibility rating: ***

POLAND – OFFALY
1982 was a big year for both. Defeated many more illustrious opponents.
Struggling to relive those glory days.
Compatibility rating: **

ECUADOR – FERMANAGH
Overshadowed by their neighbours but have made their mark on the big stage
in recent years.
Compatibility rating: **

COSTA RICA – LEITRIM.
Wouldn’t have the biggest pick in the world. Unlikely to make an impact in
this year’s championship. At least the scenery’s impressive.
Compatibility rating: *

GROUP B ENGLAND – DUBLIN
Rarely live up to pre-tournament hype hope and expectation. Few tears shed
by opposition’s fans at their demise.
Compatibility rating: *****

SWEDEN – CAVAN
Decent success in the fifties and have players capable of causing shocks
but lack consistency and killer instinct.
Compatibility rating: ***

PARAGUAY – ROSCOMMON
Tend to do well despite the presence of overbearing neighbours. Less
exciting since losing a semi-insane free-kick taking goalkeeper.
Compatibility rating: ****

TRINIDAD & TOBAGO – LONGFORD
Avery John revered by both. Getting more attention because of their
opposition. Not going to trouble the trophy engraver
Compatibility rating: ****
