I was indeed!  Proudly wearing my Ireland shirt (only coz I couldn't get a ladies Munster shirt in time).  I was in the South Stand.  Were you there?

Alas no, exams and such meant that I couldn't go (more because none of friends were finished in time, I've been done for over a week now)

And I'll be at Twickenham this weekend.  Not that any teams even vaguely Irish are playing.  Thanks Tigers.

Sorry.  I don't "do" football.  I'll be taking the opportunity to avoid as much of it as I possibly can.  It's rugby all the way for me

I'll very much as much of the football as I can. This combined with the GAA makes it a good summer

Delighted to see the first Irish production (well, co production) to win the Palme d'Or, I have high expectations for this one.

What do ye all think about the current state of affairs RE: the statutory rape laws?

Considering the number of warnings the Govt. had that such a ruling could come about, I think it's a disgrace and Mc Dowell should resign.

McDowell should resign in any case. He's a horrible Minister for Justice.

We should really demand more from our politicians. Fine Gael and Labour are really no better than the Govt. When I see those Enda Kenny posters saying "I'll sack the wasters of taxpayers' money" I think "Yeah, and hire people who'll waste your money in new, exciting ways!"

If McDowell is re-elected next year, I vote we assassinate him.

This new "stop gap" legislation is only going to cause further trouble down the road, and is quite sexist really!

Yeah, that underage boys can be convicted of stat. rape, but not girls, is bullshit.

Say if a 14 year old boy has sex with a 15 year old girl. He could be convicted of stat. rape and she couldn't. Bullshit.

It's pretty fucked up all right, I'd say the government are happy C.J. kicked the bucket to take attention away from the whole thing...

Any reason why Mexico? Alot of people supported Poland due to the influx of immigrants, which I thought was nice to see. Actually, while we like to criticise Ireland for being racist the welcome by the general public towards the Polish, IMO, is great. Yes there are the tossers who exploit them, but there is a consensus that this must stop and a campaign (the examiner) to let people know their rights.

So has anyone seen The Wind That Shakes The Barley yet and what did you think? I plan on seeing it in the next week some time (when I get some time where I'm not working!). I went to see Brick and Teh Devil and Daniel Johnston in a madcap day of cinemaing yesterday!

Anyone going to Oxegen?

Brick was excellent, Joe! Well worth seeing.

The Kino is also showing Offside this week which is aparently great.

I'm not going to Oxegen - just not too fond of the line up this year. Instead I'm going to Electric Picnic (as is everyone else where I work so everybody is avoiding the question of who is going to have to stay behind and work that weekend!).

Did anyone go to the Marquee gigs? Dylan, Roger Waters, Robert Plant?

I really wanted to go to the Marquee, just for Roger Waters. But things got in the way. I'd also love to go to Oxegen, since my favourite artist and my favourite band are playing at it (respectively, the Divine Comedy, the Who).
On the subject of the government, I've never been a fan of the PDs. They never seem that different to Fianna Fáil. And don't get me started on the Green Party. They were set up to deal with environmental issues. The last I heard of them was a Green Party TD criticising the Taoiseach for spending money on make-up.

Waters seems to have been the most celebrated act of the week. Apparently he played Dark Side of the Moon in its entirety with the original drummer for Pink Floyd!

A friend of my girlfriend is a journalist and got 2 free tickets for Dylan. He promised them to his then girlfriend, then they broke up, but he still took her. Afterwards he was talking to mygirlfriend who told him that I'd have loved to have gone to which he replied

"Jesus I'd have much rather gone with him, had I known I'd have made an excuse"


I'm sick as a parrot.

waaayyheyy! Good to see all the cork people here! I'm postgrad in UCC, did my BA. in english and history last year. I seem to have passed my entire degree in the Bróg. Now I can rarely head into the place


Oxygen: going for the camping and the session, also going to Electric Picnic: its supposed to be much better not as much of a squash and a panic and a blatent exploitation. E5 for an oxegen chicken sandwich..I think not. I end up starving myself instead and spending most of the first night tryin to find the tent while completely ossified
