THE FALL album above is on orange vinyl… I found it amusing…. You write a 1200 or 1300 word yoke every week… Or one finger type it, even worse, and try and stay amused… Ala Joe Pesci..

Nice little link here came my way today… Thank you Joseph…  The Bonovox of U2 had a few nice words for one of our own… Have a watch here..[0]=68.ARCEKluMQ2rb1XOyb9Y8nSPDnomPbYfAkzf6fhkkRz8JGcI8vZ9FUNKLQGIVBKpPdzGg9iR49zm9B4couuDhnUOjEtG4GFYbmj06ZMp1VGrB14DyQFfhQ5IqK4nL1hYFmFArvD1hMb56R18dXjwsJji2APefi2M-aB6TuxlAsMcc5mTviEHaPg&__tn__=FC-R

JOE is one of our own….I know a few who know him and his wife, and they all say they are as down to earth as they come… Sound as a pound… I think it’s a Cork thing, we don’t get ahead of ourselves… Ahead of yourself in Cork and you would be know as a langer, and get a phunt up the hole … On the flipside, when we are good at something we have no problem telling everyone… Without getting ahead of ourselves… A CORKISM if ever I know.. Anyway good on ya Joe Boy…. It only took Bono 40 years to mention ya like… (Tongues in cheeks)

I was supposed to go way for the weekend with 5 lifelong friends but thats gone on the backburner for now… But there’s a flipside because one of my favourite Cork bands are playing in the Siopa tomorrow SAT @ 1PM… THE BURMA are back with some new cracking tunes… These boys are great, and also sound as a pound… Try get in to us if you are around… Tomorrow at 1!

Ok folks… Lots of words so
Sin e for this week.
