The seventh series (of the revived Doctor Who) begins in the autumn, but the first episode, Asylum of the Daleks, is due to premiere at the BFI London later this month, (I’d love to go over for it). What do you think of the new trailer? I CANNOT WAIT!!! Also, check out this cool new […]
There was a big interwebby brouhaha when Netflix launched in Ireland in January. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t particularly interested at the time. No one was raving about it. Many people said that the price was great (at just €6.99 a month, that seems a fair comment), but that the content was seriously lacking. The range of movies was very limited and the TV shows that were available were far from up-to-date. I gave it a miss. Six months later
I was a huge fan of No Doubt from the second I received their debut album, Tragic Kingdom, as a Christmas present in 1995. Today, they release the video for their first single in nine years. The Grammy Award-winning rock group release Settle Down, the first single from their new album Push and Shove, which is released on September 21st.
Well, this lot almost slipped past my radar. How did that happen? Did you know that there are three frickin’ awesome gigs lined up for The Iveagh Gardens next week? Wanna win some tickets to see Rufus Wainwright, The Waterboys or Lisa Hannigan? Then keep reading… Rufus Wainwright begins the Iveagh Gardens Nights on Wednesday […]
I‘ll have to hold myself back here. I’m itching to make some crude joke about getting the clap. I failed. The Clap is a Dublin based rock band made up of brothers, Cathal, Dara & Donal Melinn on piano, guitar and drums respectively, Daniel Knowles on bass and Simon Moore on vocals. Rock music has […]
In complete contrast to the edgy, outrageous, controversial fare we experience in the movie itself, Ted‘s soundtrack is a mix of a gentle (and sometimes amusing) score from Composer Walter Murphy and a selection of easy listening tunes and cheesy classics. In the live action/CG-animated comedy, Seth MacFarlane tells the story of John Bennett (Mark […]
I just watched the trailer for Tim Burton’s latest movie, continuing his never-ending pursuit to remake, rework, reimagine, rejuventate, revive, rejig and redo every movie ever made. At least this time he’s not tearing down the pillars of my youth (Alice in Wonderland, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory). Instead, this time he’s revisiting (just when […]

Tim Burton and Johnny Depp’s latest adventure is a mixture of gothic horror and a 70s American soap opera. Check out Culch.ie’s review of the duo’s Dark Shadows.
*** Competition Closed – Winners will be notified shortly *** *** Congratulations to Colin, Gary, Dave and Caroline *** I am a huge fan of Jeff Dunham. Yes, like everyone else, I fell in love with that cookie little go-getter, Achmed the Dead Terrorist, long before I knew that Jeff Dunham likes to stick […]
We’re huge fans of the 80s supergroup Spring Break at Culch.ie. Playing the biggest American 80s hits even better than the originals, every single time we’ve been to see them has been an amazing night. Yes, that is me getting into the action (thanks to @cloudsteph for the awesome hair). That’s one of the most […]
I chatted with Presidents of the United States of America’s drummer, Jason Finn about the band’s current tour. Culch.ie are also offering you the chance to win tickets to see the band in Vicar Street on St Patrick’s Day night. It’s easy to enter.
This is lovely. I always love the TED Talks and this one is no different. It’s a glimpse into the mind of a great story teller as tries to explain what makes the greatest stories. Andrew Stanton is the writer of Disney’s newest film, John Carter, but he is responsible for Toy Story, Finding Nemo, […]
I‘ve seen some fine theatre in the past week, including Bookworms in the Abbey, The Master Builder in The New Theatre and The Goddess of Liberty in the Project Arts Theatre. Below is my video review of the latter two plays. I’d love to hear what you think. Both The Master Builder and The Goddess […]
