BBC News Editors are all bloggingMonday, June 26th, 2006
The BBC Editors blog is now public even though it was meant to remain in priavte beta until August.
Welcome to The Editors, a new blog written by editors from across the range of BBC News outlets – TV, radio and interactive – about their issues, dilemmas, and highs (and lows) they face in doing their jobs.
The Brits are really getting this whole blogging and transparency “mad fad thing” aren’t they? More and more UK Newspaper Editors and staff are blogging yet in Ireland not one newspaper editor or senior figure is conversing with the public and showing them how they do their work. It’s a great shame. So who do you think will be first in Ireland and how long will it take? Anyone want to start a betting pool?
UPDATE: Good post by Cian Ginty on this.

Via Leo’s blog, get a chance to ride on a steam train.
Break dancin’. Busting some fantastic moves.

Book a family holiday in Bulgaria and your kids witness a porno movie being shot on the hotel balcony.
“The first thing that the kids talked about was the fact that there were naked women getting their photos taken in the hotel,” Mr Crawford said.
This guy makes money by sitting in cars so people can drive in the carpool lanes. Will this be Dublin in a few years time? If they build carpool lanes.
They are made out of meat:
RSS Feeds for every TD – Thanks TechnoratiMonday, June 26th, 2006
This might interest the politics fans. I wasted a bit of my Sunday by inputting the name of each current TD into Technorati and generated a watch list for each. Here are Technorati Watchlists (RSS feeds) for each TD going alphabetically. Maybe James can help make an OPML file out of this? I have the raw urls in a txt file if it is neeed. Comments appreciated.

NoFitState Circus – Immortal – Utterly fantasticSaturday, June 24th, 2006
nofit state circusâ€™ ImMortal2 is part of the Cork Midsummer festival. I saw it tonight and was blown away. In 2005 it was rated as the best ever UK Circus show and I can understand why. Take the worlds that Tom Waits creates in his songs and mix them with some prose of William S Burroughs and add a fun jazzy soundtrack that Waits might himself create if he was on ectasy, throw in Cirque de Soleil without the campness and you have something like this. If I could buy the soundtrack I would. There are not many shows that hugely impress me but this is one. Lots of hot guys too. I’d travel to see this and maybe you can too as they are staying around Ireland for the next few weeks. I strongly urge you to go see them. They play two more shows in Cork tomorrow and then that’s it for there and you can see them next on:
4th – 8th July – Clonmel – Junction Festival
13th – 16th July – Donegal – Earagail Arts Festival
24th – 29th July – Dublin – Draiocht, Millennium Park, Blanchardstown
Coraline at Firkin CraneSaturday, June 24th, 2006
Myself, Gerry and Ursula (his missus) went to see Neil Gaiman’s Coraline as part of the Midsummer Festival. It was shown at beautiful the Firkin Crane Centre, pictured below.
Coraline was classed as a family show though with scary elements so that kids under 10 were discouraged from going. Nothing really scary about it but then I’m not ten anymore, though sometimes act it. It was the never disappointing Gaiman blend of quirky humour, beautiful prose, dark elements and great imagination. Gerry said he’ll have to buy the book now. Now, next we need to try and persuade them to bring Wolves in the Walls over here.
Hedwig in Dublin – July 15th, do come alongSaturday, June 24th, 2006

I fell in love with a Dead Boy. Antony And The Johnsons – singing in the movie Wild Side. Warning, naked people in this and full frontal nudity. Brief description:
“This moody French film from director Sébastian Lifshitz tells the story of Stéphanie (Stéphanie Michelini), a jaded transsexual prostitute who leaves Paris to take care of her dying mother (Josiane Storelu) in the country. She brings along her two lovers, a street-hustling Arab boy, Jamel (Yasmine Belmadi), and a Russian ex-soldier named Mikhail (Edouard Nikitine). While Stephanie and her mother come to grips with their troubled past, Mikhail has his own problems dealing with his mother back in Russia, as does Jamel who finds his lifestyle not warmly accepted by his conventional family.”
