Fan made video which the band have now stuck on their own website. If you haven’t seen Once Upon A Time in the West, this will spoil the whole movie for you. You were warned:
In 1976 a crack soldier of destiny unit bought a house, no no, rented a house and did it up with their own money, no no, someone elses, I mean resting in my account…
A staggering film for the violence, the drama and the amazing acting. An alternative glance at life in New Zealand. Here’s one scene. There are many like it. Jake the Mus is a guy you root for one minute and you hate him for his violence towards others the next minute:

IrishElection.com are recruiting for helpers on count day. Using MySay.com people in count centres can phone into a special number and their voicemail is turned into a live podcast-like message for the world to hear.

If you want to help out give them an email on IrishElection < AT > Gmail.com and include your name, constituency you are in and your mobile number.

That’s the good thing about Hugh’s work, it always fires up those neurons, be it cards, suits or wine.
At least it’s not like the scene from American Psycho:
