Pointers for journalists: If you want to talk about the bad weather, you might not want to be so literal about it. This may the only time the man appears on television…and yet, he has slipped and fallen on ice for everyone to see.
While this makes for some good entertainment, I’m sure the poor man is at home rubbing and massaging what I imagine is a very sore backside.
This is the way to tackle litter — literally. The advertisement was produced by South Dublin City Council and is already going viral. Just a thought: If you’re dying to (gently) tackle people for Halloween this year, why not go as an Irish litterbox? You’d be both badass and an ecological hero.
Upon discovering Kanye West and I share the same horoscope sign (Gemini) I was quite rattled that we might share similar characteristics. Gemini is the twin sign so we’re supposedly dual-natured, but Kanye just seems to have one side an that’s a total spaz.
At a recent concert in Dublin Kanye lost his sh*t when someone threw a coin on stage and
nearly killed him put him off the song. He started the track all over again but not without a stern lecture for the troublemakers: “I ain’t trying to make excuses but y’all threw a f*cking coin up here and threw me all the way off” he said. “Don’t throw that hard sh*t up here while I’m performing. Seriously. You f*cked it up for everybody, I was having a perfect show. Flawless victory. Don’t throw no sh*t on the stage.”
Then Kanye dived back into his set. Perhaps he was having birthday blues as he turned 35 the day before, but admittedly, he has a point. What kind of ‘fan’ throws hard coins on stage like you’re visiting the Trevi Fountain and have a dying wish? That could seriously hurt someone.
Lesson: if you go to “Watch the Throne,” leave the laser pens and coins at home.
Watch it here:
EMI is suing an entire country, not its civilians, but literally entire country for downloading too many Snoop Dogg MP3s illegally.
I was unaware that the Irish even loved the rapper more than a baked potato. Apparently Ireland breached copyright law and now EMI (the label Snoop’s on) is pissed.
EMI can’t seen to fully grasp the digital world, or else they’d find a way to maintain a steady cashflow from internet users. Sure, sometimes people don’t pay for music but that’s only because a lot of other labels and indie bands constantly release music for free.
It’s reported in the Toronto Standard that EMI is trying to work together with the Irish Law to tackle piracy. Trying to combat illegal downloading is like trying to get Snoop to give up smoking weed. It isn’t going to happen if it’s accessible just about everywhere.
Prince has been humiliated publicly by the Irish Courts. A judge decided to release information about a court battle that the pop singer lost, according to TMZ.
High Court Justice Peter Kelly announced that Prince owes almost $3 Million to concert promoters after he backed out of a 2008 show in Dublin.
The two parties apparently reached a settlement in February but Prince has yet to write a cheque.
Ireland’s The Script were one of UK’s biggest breakout bands last year and now they’re on their way to becoming the next big thing in the U.S. The Irish trio consists of Danny O’Donoghue (keys and vocals), Mark Sheehan (guitar), and Glen Power (drums).
In case you haven’t heard their single “The Man Who Can’t Be Moved,” that’s burning up charts, The Script boasts a new brand of Celtic Soul with a blend of hip hop lyrical flow, rock dynamics, pop melodies and R&B production.
Their self-titled album was released in the U.S. on March 17, after debuting in the UK, selling more copies of their first album than any other debut group.
