Really? I always thought Jimmy Carr was like 6ft plus. You sure it wasn't Alan Carr?


Nope, definitely the Jimmy version, looking very dapper in his black double-breasted raincoat   I'd put him around 5'8", give or take - 4'6" if you exclude the head

In what might be the most boring post ever, just wondering if anyone knows somewhere in Belfast (or anywhere easily commutable from Belfast by bus or train) where I can buy some decent single restaurant standard plates. I only need 4 so I don't want to fork out for a dining set, but would like something large in either circle or square. I'd also be keen to know where I can get those rectangle ones that flash joints serve dessert in.

And yes, I have been watching Master Chef recently.

Ikea is your friend.  Cheap as well, and a decent choice of designs and sizes

Cheers Sharky. The bastards at Tranlink cancelled the direct Ikea bus from Forestside but I'll use all my skills and cunning to find another way there.

Then I'll buy a baguette and smash the system. Booya!

Billed as being the tourist attraction, it always amuses me that NI takes such a pleasure in being responsible for a notorious failure. Anyway, it's opening in a couple of months and while I'm curious, I hope that it offers a bit more than the stuff we already know from various films.

Anyone involved in this or know more about it?

Hell, if we're not naming airports after booze-soaked wife-beaters, we're celebrating ships that can't even make one trip across the Atlantic!

It's all about reliving the Titanic experience apparently, from construction to sinking.  You'll be taken through recreations of the shipyard, the launch and the voyage.  I know that they've recreated some areas from the ship, including the grand staircase that featured in the movie.  No doubt it'll cost a small fortune to get into it too.   There'll be the usual conference facilities, over-priced restaurants and gift shops too.

Can I just say for the record that I think the building itself is incredible?

I agree the building looks impressive, had a great view of it from Yorkgate Cinema the other week. 13.50 per adult I think is what they're charging, which I suppose is about the going rate for these sort of things.

Cus we aint got nothing else! I laughed a year or so back when Southampton threatened to jump on board the bandwagon as well, it would have slightly tarnished the uniqueness of the belfast attraction. I am hoping there is a mock up of the front of the ship so I can proclaim myself king of the world as I am sure nobody else would think of doing that.

'Fury' over the sale of part of the Titanic at auction in the US, Belfast Titanic society chair calls the sale 'crass'. Given that we've pretty much building an industry around it, I hope she sees the irony in her comments

Somehow, I doubt it. A lot of people in this wee country seem to have all concept of irony removed at birth.

I had a bracelet like that in the 90s. Was a bit cheaper though. And the diamonds kept falling off....

Unless her Titanic Tour (plug!) involves a submarine, I'm pretty sure she wouldn't see them if they stayed where they were either.

Couple of film related things I noticed flicking through the Ulster festival program that might be of interest to people here:

John Stevenson - From the Muppets to Kung Fu Panda: A Personal Film Trip. University of Ulster (Belfast) 19th March.

Tom Miller (set artists and technical director at Pixar) talking about his life and work, again at the UU Belfast, 23rd March.

More info: http://ulsterfestival.com

And on a non film related note has anyone else tried these yet?


Sooooo good. Reminds me of old school Monster Munch.

Ooh, they look yummy. I'll have to try them, if I can stop myself going straight to Tayto's Bang Bang Spicy Thai, which taste just as awesome as their name.

They've also got some Titanic Salt and Vinegar ones.

You know, if I owned a restaurant in Belfast, I'd definitely be promoting a Titanic Burger with Iceberg Lettuce.

I'd buy it.

It was pointed out to me today that the Titanic centre looks more like an iceberg than it does a ship.

How come the only topic in this thread is the Titanic centre, is it really that big a deal in NI?

According to my husband there are some old sailors in his bar that refuse to have ice in their whisky as a result of the Titanic. Might be taking the piss though.

I think, due to combination of listening to U105 and reading the daily headlines of the Belfast Telegraph, that I'm actually becoming obsessed with Belfast's obsession with the Titanic.

Did you know the Titanic Society vehemently opposed the Belfast Wheel due to the fact that it blocked their memorial?

They should have opposed it for being a useless eyesore. "Hey, I can see some filthy rooves from this swaying death bubble! This might be enjoyable if I didn't have motion sickness!"

I thought I saw an advert for a Titanic music festival earlier, which I like to imagine is just a slowly sinking string quartet.

Given that the PSNI are turning up on the doorsteps of bars and plubs at 2am to make sure the music goes off on the dot, I'd thought I'd share this wee gem.



And an accompanying petition to try and get the licencing issue raised at Stormont.

Sort of links in with the Scottish thread this http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-17900220

If you live and go to school in NI, but hold an Irish Passport, you'll be exempt from paying uni fees in Scotland. Bit harsh on those who don't I suppose, you could in theory have two people of equal ability, going to the same school, living a few doors from each other and one being thousands of pounds better off for the sake of a piece of paper.

Should I be worried that it took me to the "Remember" bit of the small print to catch on that it was a spoof?! I am a bit tired today though, thats my excuse. I am still laughing at that final line, we seem to like a lot of giant metal things over here to keep us entertained.

So, anyone else hit badly by the floods? The power's out in my house, has been since last night, so I'm dossing round at my sisters atm. Still, at least someone managed to get the obligatory canoe shot en route to Cutters.
