Sweary’s Jaw: A Lowe Blow

Well, holy rolling eyeballs, but didn’t we get very angsty about Zane Lowe’s response to Lauren Laverne’s response to Beyoncé’s… er, beyonse? Twitter lit up with the indignation of it, friends fell out over it, otherwise rational people called for Lowe’s head on a platter, delivered to Ms. Knowles’/Mrs. Z’s feet so she could shimmy […]


A ‘Knight’ Out with Danny McBride

  Being a blogger isn’t always sunshine and lollipops, unless you are one of the lucky ones covering the bi-annual  ‘Sonnenschein und Lolly-Knalle’ festival on the outskirts of Salzburg of course. Sometimes it’s a thankless, spell checking, dull awards-sitting, social nightmare of a thing. However, it also allows you the opportunity to be asked ‘Do […]

Sweary’s Jaw: Cocooned Buffoon.

Poor Rebecca Black. The thirteen-year-old credited – can I say credited? – with having belched into the world the Worst Song Of All Time has been pretty much eaten alive by The Mob. Sound the alarm. Alert the President. Stop the presses. A quick run through for those of you who’ve found yourself quite inexplicably […]


Tubridyrte Name Ireland’s 50 Fine Things

We know they’re cooler than us, with their buke and their ultracool internet status symbol of being Best Blog 2010 at the IBAs last year, but we like to think of the lovely ladies over at as our blogging sister ship (right, fine, we’re a dinghy, we know). We’re also big fans of their […]

Sweary’s Jaw: Ringside Tweet

Twitter was five years old the other day, and the whole virtual landscape flowered with congratulations and early-onset nostalgia. The first tweet was dug up and retweeted, retweeted, and retweeted again in worldwide echo, and we all wondered how we ever got by without our own tailored news feeds and gossip lines. I’m not entirely […]

I Heart Tea Crowd – Episode 3 Neil Hannon

To quote the second best song writer of all time, “What, you thought we wouldn’t come again? Leave you hanging without bringing you the fun again?” Yes, instead of aliens, Will Smith could have been talking about Tea Crowd, a little bit delayed but back and better than ever. This time we caught up with the […]

Sweary’s Jaw: Lines of Charlie

His most recent meltdown may have left some of you in a heightened state of befuddlement, but those of us who like to keep abreast of celebrity carry-on were never in any doubt that Charlie Sheen is more mental than nerd-rage. The horrendously public split from Denise Richards, the charges of domestic violence, the loud […]



Sweary’s Jaw: Unbeliebable.

I don’t remember where I was when Robbie Williams left Take That. Taking into account that I’m from Galway, I was probably stoned in a ditch somewhere. I do remember, though, that they had to open phone helplines in the UK, so distraught were TT fans. There was mass weeping and wringing of hands. There […]

Sweary’s Jaw: Kim Kardashian’s Glass House

Do you lot know who Kim Kardashian is? There’s no shame in admitting you don’t; if anything, I’m rather mortified that I do. I blame it on an unfortunate addiction to bonkers/offensive celebrity gossip site, The Superficial, and having once shared a house with a Heat subscriber. Knowing who Kim Kardashian is may well be […]



Sweary’s Jaw: The Democratisation Of Celebrity Arrives … Slowly.

Being internet types, I’m sure you’ve all been witness to Ted Williams’ magnificent  rise to fame. Just a few days ago, he was “discovered” homeless and begging for change in return for a blast of his golden radio voice, which turned out to be almost impossibly smooth, like Frank Sinatra re-imagined through whale song. Even […]

Sweary’s Jaw

Surreptitiously willing those Glee girls to put their damn pants back on, so you don’t have to. So here’s the deal-ee-oh. I know I’ve been rather quiet recently re: the scandalous faffery of the more recognisable of our world citizens, but it’s only because I’ve really stopped giving a knob. I have other things to […]
