Re: Good music and other good stuff on youtube and Facebook

This is the new single from Siomha, a woman I worked with in Bunratty about 15 years ago. She crowdfunded the album and recorded over the last 2 years.

Have to call out this scene. Forget your Game of Thrones “sexposition”. This is a superb acting performance by Rosamund Pike, and probably the most Lord of the Rings style scene. Would love to have seen Viggo get a 4 minute sequence to tell the Tale of Tinúviel, but that’s where TV gives you time to...

Re: The Wheel of Time TV Series

Two episodes in. So far, so good. Feels more LotR than Game of Thrones in tone, but doesn't feel as high end as either of those despite the $10m per episode price tag. Since Amazon are making the LotR series as well as this one, and they even share directors for some episodes, its definitely worth w...

Re: Rugby!

You still out there Griffy?

Just wondering what your opinion is of the Rassie Erasmus fiasco?

Predictably, RSA fans think he was completely in the right and the rest of the Rugby world think he was completely in the wrong. As a Springbok in exile, what's your take?

Re: Middle-earth [formerly LotR] in New Media
