Fluffy Links – May 7th 2007

Monday, May 7th, 2007

Crazy and stupid. A giant catapult for base jumpers.

A virtual dog walking arcade game. Of course.

Does Leitrim really exist?

Via FatMammyCat – Jesus is back and now he’s pissed. Next Christmas forgivness comes down the barrel of a gun:

Jonathan Coulton – First of May

Fuck that godawful Police and Snowpatrol mashup, Rick O’Shea should play this on his show. C’mon Rick!

Beating Blogorrah to it – The Trevor is a badass too, like Vincent

Sunday, May 6th, 2007

Via the Green Party Flickr account. (Kudos for having one lads and ladies.)

We already know Vincent is a badass but where does Irish politics’ baddest badass go when he’s hungry? (And also Politician of the year) Same place that Chuck Norris goes to when he’s in Dublin – The Badass Cafe. Badasses do in fact dine there. (They have a special box that goes on top of Norris’ chair so he can reach the table.) Oh and that’s milk they’re drinking. Enough of your Marc Almond jibes. In case you need to know Ciaran Cuffe dines in Govindas while Eamonn Ryan dines on tuna friendly baby dolphins in chez Jacques.

I'm the baddest badass, mofo

FYI, Chuck Norris, son of David, is pictured on the right below. Don’t let his Koala-like cuddliness fool you. Like a real Koala, he can take you:

Saturday, May 5th, 2007

Via Fabulist is “Girls just want to have fun” by Greg Laswell. MP3 available from Fabulist or you can watch two video versions below. Didn’t even realise this was a cover until I twigged the song title. This

Friday, May 4th, 2007

These are not so much fluffy as linky. Call it an early morning new blogs on the block.

First up is Tír na nÓg aka Adventures of an Irish Mammy. Already great blog posts from this very new mammy.

Tiny Planet is the blog of David O’Mahony, a freelance sub-editor for the Irish Examiner.

Rough Hands – The blog of a Dairy Farmer in the South West of Ireland.

Bit old now but Dan Hardie has another great blog post here about Amir the carpet seller.

Finally! Woo! Yay! Rock on! Minister for Dialup Noel Dempsey has a blog. It seems his blog comments are not moderated so anyone with a blogger account can leave a message. And they have.

Via the Ray D’Arcy show is John Bracken. Your candidate for Laois/Ofally:

Update: Song is on Mongrel
