Culch.ie Catch-Up (4)
Secondly, this weeks catch-up is a little early because at this very moment myself and half of Team Culch.ie are flying high over head on their way to Scotland to see Dave Gorman perform on a train carriage in the middle of nowhere. Expect tales of an entirely random weekend involving a comedy gig on a train and the secret missions of Ms. Bngr.
Thirdly, isn’t Zooey just lovely?
- Bngr discusses swinging. Oops, sorry Swingers, totally different thing altogether. Fun all the same.
- Niall fancies Cormac McCarthy’s The Road as an Oscar hopeful.
- Niall also questions if a Barbie movie can really make it big or will it fail due to lack of back story? I think he forgets about the millions of little girls who created their very own back stories of for self-image thrashing femme fatal. I’m sure we can help Mattel out if they are looking for inspriation.
- This weeks Flock of Five is a bit of a mixed bag.
- The Coronas second album, Tony Was An Ex-Con is released today. We got an early peek at it . Check out the review.
- “The Men Who Stare at Goats” – even with a questionable mustache Mr. Clooney is sigh-worthy.
- Tommy Tiernan makes a holy show of himself again.
- Travors paid a visit to the CSI Experience in The Ambassador Theater last weekend. Read his thoughts on the experience here.
- Well it’s Web-TV – If you haven’t seen anything Vultures PI yet, shame on you! Go sort yourself out. If you have, Niamh has the latest episode for you.
- The Emmy Awards – who went home with who what.
- If I said Adora Belle Dearheart or Doughnut Jimmy would you know what I was talking about? If you, you might fit in well here.
- I have to say if you’re going to work in a newsagents, don’t be judgemental. And does the placement of “lads” magazines on the top shelf discriminate against midgets the vertically challenged?
- There is so much on this weekend:
- The Ruby Couture fashion discount extravaganza is on in the Mansion House until Sunday. In brief, I went to the launch this last night and have ten words of advice: GET THERE EARLY and THE BAGS ARE ON THE UPPER LEVEL.
- The Ranelagh Arts Festival runs until Sunday 27th September.
- The Edward Munch prints exhibition opened in The National Gallery last week and runs until December. It’s a reasonably cheap way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
- The Open House festival in Belfast is also running until Sunday. Keleher has more details.
- Will has the full listing for Tonight’s Culture Night in Cork.
- And Darragh (who we now hate because of this) lets you know all about Dublin’s Culture Night.
- First Scarlett and now we’ve lost Zooey to the theory of wedded bliss.
- And more Zooey...just cos I can!
