I feel Seasick – Fianna Fáil’s Party Political Broadcast

Sunday, May 13th, 2007

The techno music in the background, they appealing to boyracers? The constant moving of the fucking camera is REALLY annoying. Stop. Stoppppp. Getting seasick here!

Why are there no Fianna Fáil people in the video? Where’s Bertie? The content itself is hilarious, with people talking about the great stuff that FF have done. Plastic bags costing 15cents. Yay! “The National Treatment Purchase Plan”, oh would ya fuck off with that shite. Like a normal person would talk about that. Still the people in the video do appear to be totally natural unlike those in the Labour video where it was obvious they’re actors (though still kicking the ass of anyone on Fair City). All in all it felt like it was a video ad for a fitness gym because of the music, you just wanted it to end sooner.

Labour Party Political Broadcast – Worked for me

Saturday, May 12th, 2007

As party political broadcasts go, I think it is one of the best I’ve seen though this is the first of this election that I saw. More importantly I think Pat comes across as caring, considerate and genuine in it. Damnit, I’m even calling him Pat instead of Pat Rabbitte, as if he is a family friend or something. Suckered in? Very American style to the whole thing I must say, but it works. Not saying it means they get my vote though!

And also as gaeilge:

Noel Dempsey blog shows the Vincent Browne Video and more

Saturday, May 12th, 2007

Well I never. Nice to see that I can watch Vincent Browne take Bertie to pieces on the official Noel Dempsey Blog:

Vincent on Noel's blog

And also nice to see I can watch Bertie get mauled on the Dragon’s Den too:
Dempsey laughs at Bertie on the Dragon's Den

Perhaps the Video widget on the sidebar shouldn’t display any video that is tagged with Fianna Fail?

Meanwhile Noel shows a picture from his new movie “The Sound of Music 2: The Celtic Tiger”:

Newstalk “fake”election posters litter Lower Road in Cork

Friday, May 11th, 2007

Noticed today that Newstalk also have those fake election posters on lampposts around the train station in Cork. Not had a chance to get a photo though. Cork City hall said they will get fined if the litter warden goes down and sees them.

Nice for some – ebookers Blog Awards Raffle winner is off to Koh Samui

Friday, May 11th, 2007

Raffle winner

Remember the holiday prize, raffled on the night of the Blog Awards? Well the winner on the night was Karen Quigley. let me know that she’s now chosen the 8 night trip to nice Koh Samui. That’s in Thailand for all of us that are crap at geography. Karen, I want a postcard. ebookers donated the holiday to let bloggers know of their affiliate programme for blogs and websites. The idea is you have a widget on your site and if someone books a flight or hol or travel insurance, you get a cut. I don’t do ads on this site but it might be a handy little widget for those that already do Google and Amazon ads.

This is how Blacknight loses a very vocal customer. Again.

Fluffy Links – May 11th 2007

Friday, May 11th, 2007

Ordered a new domain for myself. I think I’ll make it a directory of PR companies in Ireland. Whatdyathink? 🙂

30 photo prints for just 99 cents. You could just print off 30 copies of you and the Taoiseach. Or other political photos.

Via Burkie, it seems that a clever Galway taxi company has a Bebo profile and is getting a great amount of business from it. Listen and learn folks.

Via Josh Spear: Free invites to I’m In Like With You.

It seems online campaigning does work, according to Eric Byrne.

After years being idle. is live!

Via James is this IrishTourism video. I think this is ripe for remixing into something more fun. Any takers?

Gravity wave?
