You might have to register. It's pretty much a thread from a woman looking for bands to take part in her Battle of the Bands competition at Hunters/Vaugns or whatever they are calling it this week, for which they are charged £20 and the winners are based on how big of a crowd they can bring in. When a few people question her methods she takes the hump, claiming to be one of the biggest names in NI music and accusing all those unwilling to pay a bunch of hippies. Gets quite entertaining in parts.

Funny I could access the site yesterday but not today. Says its forbidden.

Wish I couldve read that topic though. Did you recognise her name? Cuz claiming to be one the biggest names in NI music is a pretty small pool to be in.

The only big NI bands I can think of are Snow Patrol, Ash or (for a localised band) General Fiasco.

Her name's Tina Calder, her Wiki Page is marked for deletion as they have been unable to verify her 'award winning journalist' status.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tina_Calder

She runs a talent agency of some description called FAME and the magazine of the same name. More for the X Factor crown than the indie/rock hippies she was courting on Fastfude by the looks of it.

Anyone read about the guy who killed his wife then gassed himself, leaving 3 kids orphaned? Cannot understand how anyone could do this.

Just read about that, such a despicable thing to do.


Don't want to make light of the issue above, but thought I'd see what people are doing for Halloween? Anyone Derry bound?

Anyone catch Tim 'Da' McGarry's Irish History Lesson last night? I thought it was pretty hilarious.

Na, but I've seen a site advertising it in Ballymena and it offers a 'Free A Level with every ticket.'

EDIT: Just found it via i player now, going to have a look.

Of all the members of the Hole in the Wall gang, McGarry seems the most likely to cross over into territory that might actually be considered funny. It's a long, lonely journey back from the horrors of Give My Head Peace, though.

Tru dat.

I really did laugh out loud at a lot of the things he said last night, especially how he's a grammar pedant, and spent the troubles going round with a paintbrush fixing all the grafitti.

Prodestants, indeed.

I'll be down towards the end for the fireworks. There's a fair bit going on that weekend for the kids, Black Box is having a special Goblin Market on the Saturday from 1pm, then from 2.30pm same day the Pavilion has a free family event with a magic act. We went last year and it was really good, loads of free treats for the kids and plenty of room (it's in the middle bar) for them to run around and go nuts. I'll probably be helping out with face painting.

Anybody been to either of the Dara O'Briain shows in the Waterfront this week? I was at last nights. The man was on top form as always; the skit about gaming really did have me doubled over, as did the whole pregnancy bit.

I'm back at the Waterfront tonight too to see Tommy Immanuel. Can't wait.

I had the Hog roast bap last year for the first time and thought it was one of the foulest things I've ever tasted. And I will eat almost anything.

Very excited for the rest of it though, Lavery's tent here I come.

Ugh, I hate the Christmas market. I made to go every year, but when I ask for a reason why all I get is a 'you just have to.'

Maybe this year I'll actually buy something at the Christmas market. Usually I just walk around and stare at the pretty things before becoming intimidated by the crowds and leaving. I like the cool hats they sell.

Christmas Market arrival means two things: bad next-day hangover & dodgy next-day tummy... but hey, it's tradition now!

Anyone know why they decided to move switching the lights in Belfast to a Saturday?

Anyone got thoughts on this BBC article?

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-11866146

While I think its great that more and more film and TV production crews are filming over here, I must say I'm a little sceptical of Peter Robinson's assertion that they have brought in £30m to the Northern Irish economy. For example Game of Thrones has created around 800 local jobs, but is not guaranteed long term employment (a second season has not been confirmed yet, nor is there anything to say it will definitely be filmed here), and while of cast and crew spend money when here, where does the £30million come from? Who exactly is getting this money, where is it going? Can anyone with a little more know how than me explain, as the article itself goes nowhere to explaining this.

I've always found movie/tv revenue to be way too fluid a science to pin down (movies that make hundreds of millions at the box office still make losses?  WTF?), but given that Robinson's answer was in response to an Assembly question, I've no reason to doubt the veracity of his figures (as someone who has to compile such responses on a weekly basis, I know how much scrutiny they come under and the importance of accuracy!).

And to be fair to him, the Beeb article has simplified what he actually said, which was laden with caveats:

quote:

  The film ‘Your Highness’ returned a direct spend to the Northern Ireland economy of approximately £12 million for an investment of some £1·15 million. Series 1 of ‘Game of Thrones’ is anticipated to return a direct spend to the local economy of approximately £17 million for an investment of £1·6 million. If series 1 proves successful, the potential exists for production to continue on up to seven series at the Paint Hall, which could equate to a total direct spend in the local economy of an estimated £140 million for an investment of some £11 million. It is necessary to understand that the decision by HBO to commission the second series of ‘Game of Thrones’ could be made as early as April next year.


Still, in these times any inward investment has to be seen as a good thing, and there is no doubt that the NI economy is getting a pretty healthy return on its money from these productions.  The Paint Hall is well on the way to establishing itself as a prime contender for any studio looking for a huge indoor set with a steady supply of skilled workers. Long may it continue!

Didn't know anything about this woman until I read the article, but she sounds like she was a particularly dedicated person and I'm sure she'll be greatly missed.
