Outro: Everlast – Stone In My Hand
Smurfs – Belgian from 1958
UPDATE: The audio mix was too low, that’s been adjusted but the noise in the background is a factor once again. Sorry, we’ll try to sort this out for Episode 7.
We refuse to link to “news” about Garth Brooks on the off chance that some of whose twats might see this podcast and become confused and angry at our crazy notions. Needless to say, we’re ashamed of a country and a populace that rates this as being more important than pretty much every other facet of life in Ireland.
Our first Musical break:
Film review section:
What’s It Gonna Be? It’s gonna be Episode 5 – BRAND AWARENESS!
Right off the bat, we wanna apologise for the slight hiss in the background of the audio – our highly specialised and expensive studio equipment was suffering from technical difficulties.
To start with we have Dead Bill Hicks extolling the virtues of what Marketing and Advertising people bring to the world.
First Music Break:
We come back and talk about The FIFA World Cup. The Rap News vid we mentioned can be seen here.
We’ve got Swastika Weed Pope as our BRAND AMBASSADOR as you can see above.
Hurling on Sky Sports – sure why wouldn’t ye?
Waterford Whispers – The Day Ireland Lost It’s Innocence.
Charles Stross – The Laundry Files.
Brian Lumley – Necroscope.
Are there tapeworm eggs in Slim Fast? No Neal. Just no.
Exit music from our friend Rachel Ann is Trentemøller – Take Me Into Your Skin
What’s It Gonna Be returns with Episode 4 – 800 Babies.
Our introduction comes from the late Maya Angelou who talks about the impact of the death of her childhood abuser had on her.
Some of the highlights from this episode:
When we get into talking about the latest atrocity from Tuam, Neal read’s from this article on Irish Central.
Here’s the startrek.com article on the episode “Darmok” – Sokath, his eyes uncovered!
Our second musical break is Rage Against The Machine’s Born As Ghosts.
In our discussion about the education system, this RSA Animations video based on a lecture given by Sir Ken Robinson is the one Dav was talking about.
Article about Brian Harvey running himself over (sorry about linking to the Daily Fail).
