WedJuly27 - JP's Got a Date

Frig. I need to get me hair cut again. I might just get it shaved off altogether.

JP is going on a blind date. He had to text her tonight to make first contact - thanks for the many disgusting and few genuine suggestions for what he could say. It seems it's all ok now though - he won't tell me exactly how they got on textually should I blab on the radio but he wasn't crying, which is always a good sign.

Who fancies some free porn?

Mairead Farrell from The Ray D'arcy Show was on. The song was Madonna - Ray of Light

Mairead told us how she got sick when the rest of the team forced her to milk a cow in Youghal. It wasn't the fact that it was Youghal that made her sick, it was the cow. The lads are in Lahinch today and Renvyle later. And Phil Cawley's in Galway at the races. When do we get to go out?

TRICKY DICK!!!

21 handshakes. Each man doesn't shake with everyone else more than once. The first guy shakes hands with everyone, then the second guy shakes hands with everyone but the first guy, etc

Lads, here's a question for you: Twink or Maxi? I went for Maxi, JP said Twink. The listener vote went with Twink. DO NOT DO AN INTERNET SERCH FOR THE WORD TWINK. You'll get loads of gay porn, and nobody wants that. Unless they're gay.

Ok, so a bit of net research has uncovered the backstory of an early girl band, two-thirds of it made up by the aforementioned Twink and Maxi. However, the third girl was called... DICK! Maxi, Dick & Twink.

To help you decide, here are the ladies "in their day":

Maxi (left), Twink, and Dick (right)
Just so we're clear, Maxi's the foxy one with the daft boots on the left - Twink's the multicoloured micstand.

Dick, Maxi and that's Twink in the bottom corner.

There's no competition! Wouldn't mind a bit of Dick, either.

Time has not been kind to our early popstars, however. Twink's going to be a judge on "celeb
" You're a Star:
While Maxi still trumps her - by being a DJ! On Radio 1, but still she's cooler.

    Went to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. As a big fan of Tim Burton, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Though it wasn't without a few hiccups: they Americanised the English people in it. Fair enough if they are American they should say things like "faucet" or "diaper", but our little English lad Charlie and his English Grandmas and Grandpas saying things like "candy" and "vacation" just sounded wrong. The oompa-loompas were a bit shit, and the guy that plays them (all of them, digitally) was SO BAD at lip-synching with the lyrics of the songs, which were good but very hard to hear over the backing track. And the narrator sounded like he was drunk.

    Small issues, but you'll know for again, Tim. Call me when you get a chance - we'll talk.

    SatJuly23 - I've Got a Golden Ticket!

    Well, I dunno about you, but I'm sorted for Charlie this weekend.

    I'm going to be at the first Irish screening tomorrow from 4. The only drawback is a lot of these media-type exclusive weekend screenings of kids movies involve DJs and presenters bringing their kids or (in most of 2FM's case) their grandkids along. The place is thronged with spoiled brats stuffing their faces with ice cream, coke and chocolate, shouting and laughing in inappropriate moments and constantly asking for explanations of what's going on in the movie.

    Though I can hardly talk: I'll have JP with me.

    FriJuly22 - Today, I've Mostly Been...

    ...watching Mean Creek, the coming-of-age Stand by Me-esque drama, starring Rory Culkin and a brill young cast. It's upsetting, but that means it's doing its job. All of the actors are superb, but scenes between Culkin and Trevor Morgan (the guy who played the kid in Jurassic Park 3) as his older brother are the most watchable.

    ...watching
    Extras, the new Stephen Merchant/Ricky Gervais venture. Excellent, though Gervais said that the new character wasn't at all like Brent. From the first episode, there's not a whole lot different about him, and the comedy is the same style. The Scottish bird who plays Ricky's mate is very funny - a character that The Office lacked, more girl-oriented cringy stuff. You'll see what I mean when you see it. Ben Stiller is ace too.

    ...sleeping.

    ...fighting with JP over the phone.

    ThuJuly21 - Long-winded

    Before you buy anything, ANYTHING - look online to see what people are saying about it. If I had to give you any advice it would be this. I bought a wireless router from Netgear about a year ago, and it's given me nothing but trouble since day one. I bought it because it was cheap and it was Netgear (a brand I thought were reputable) but found after buying the piece of crap that there are entire websites dedicated to how shit Netgear have become. Don't get me wrong, the couple of weeks I got it to work, it was a webtastic wet dream, but the rest of the time's been a nightmare. Yeah, I would send it back, but I bought it in the states, and it'd be too much like hard work.

    I think it finally died tonight. Thank Christ. Now maybe Kate'll give me permission to buy another one.

    That's not the only reason tonight's update is so frickin' late. No, I was supposed to get a lift home tonight from a mate of mine, Niall. Yes, the same genius Niall who called me while I was on air the other night. Niall lost his car keys - making it difficult for me to get a lift - so we spent an hour walking around Dublin city centre at one in the morning looking for them. We didn't find them, but I finally made it home. Eventually. Aaaannnnyway...

    I missed a free piss-up, thrown by the record company of:


    I only remembered when I got home, which also has me feeling a little narky. To think I could've been downing beers gratis, instead of scanning the vomit-splattered, piss-puddled streets of Templebar for non-existent car keys.

    There's this guy called Barry Scott, he's someone I'd call a mate, someone to talk to when you're going through a bad patch, someone whose smiling face will always be there to comfort you from the glare of the TV.
    You know him, he's Barry Scott from the Cilit Bang ads! I've watched these ads and wondered who the hell Barry Scott is, and I'm sure I'm not alone on this. However, I probably am alone in that I went online with my curiosity to find out what kind of British Z-List celebrity he is, and found this:

    "Who is Barry Scott?
    The fictitious character who voice-overs and stars in the UK Cilit Bang advert. Presumably the name was created by the genius advertising team who needed a plain, trustworthy and punchy name. The actor's name is Neil Burgess and he has also recently appeared in the latest Brian McFadden video."


    Barry - not even his real name - lied to us.

    We think JP's finally found a girlfriend. Her name is Melissa Theuriau, a French newsperson. My God, she's stunning. To think, we've got Alan Cantwell, while the Frenchies have this:




    And she's French! Oh, and she's not JP's girlfriend. More on Melissa here...

    Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas has hidden porn on the disc. Apparently Rockstar cheekily put a porn scene onto the code of the game - a porn scene you wouldn't find unless you were a code-cracking porn-loving geek. Who, me? All you have to do is... well, I couldn't tell you how to look at porn you've already bought. But this website can. FYI, www.rayfoley.net is not responsible for the content of external websites. It's your funeral if your mum or girlfriend catches you.

    I got no ALDI telly. They were selling 42" plasmas today for 1500 euro, but I wasn't allowed to splurge. Looking at boards.ie earlier though, and I'm kinda glad I'm whipped into saving my cash - or should I say, credit. More here... but imagine playing PS2 on a 42" screen? Or better, yet, watching that GTA porn scene?

    PS - edit: I'm back, with the full lowdown on the GTA:SA porn. It's not porn, it's only in-game sex.

    This is from the readme file in what's now become known as "The Hot Coffee Crack":

    "With this mod you will be able to unlock the uncensored interactive sex-games with your girlfriends in San Andreas. Rockstar built all this stuff in the game, but decided to disable it in their final release for unknown reasons.And now this mod enables these sex-games again, so now you can enjoy the full experience."

    There's a massive backlash in the states with copies of the game being pulled from Walmart shelves because of two characters fake shagging IN A GAME!?!?!? That's the good ol' US of A for you though: killing and carnage on a massive scale, gangs and drugs, car crashes, robbery and theft. All ok. Sex, hell, no!!

    ThuJuly21 - Can You See My Vision?

    Can you see my vision
    Of a red hot summer in wine?
    When love was the feeling
    With no indecision
    We were turning that key inside
    To get in the moment

    Whatever that means! Funny story about the song "My Vision" by Jakatta ft Seal: in the last radio station I worked in, there were about ten of us in the boss's office, discussing new music that might make it onto the station playlist the following week, when this song was put in the CD player. It was the chief's policy not to name the song or artist, just play the song - so then we'd judge it on the sound alone. Anyway, about a minute in, one of the lads says:
    "Y'know, that sounds awfully like Seal", to which I reply,
    "No, it can't be - that's definitely Jakatta."
    No, not that funny actually.

    Back to the point - I'm sitting here in front of my PC at 3 in the morning, extremely excited by an image before me, and no, this time there's no Eastern European porno involved. It's this:

    No, no, no - it's not just a photo viewer. It does all this too:

    So, that's music, movies, photos and contacts/calender in one? So I can watch my episodes of CSI on the bus and when Gil gets his guy I can listen to a bit of fiddy?

    It's called the Creative Zen Vision, and it's what people (internet nerds like me) are chat-rooming about at the moment. These babies are probably the next generation of ipod, since they make video as well as audio portable. These are not the first to ever do this (Microsoft sponsored a series of Media-player reliant Media Centers last year), but they're the first to look this good and do this much (hello? Divx & Xvid?).

    I'm also excited because they're being built by Creative, (in Dublin, incidentally) the people who make music products for a living. No dig at Apple there.
    The Vision pic and details I have at the moment are all a bit sketchy from dapreview.net but if this lives up to the standard of their 30GB NOMAD Jukebox Zen NX mp3 player (my musical life in a silver little brick) then I'll be a very happy mobile tv and music addict.

    I'm getting more details on Tuesday. I'm drooling already.

    WedJuly20 - Uncouth and Ignorant Animals? Welcome to THE BLAST!

    Darth Sidious from Star Wars Ep 3: Revenge of the Sith. We were doing our impression of his RIIIIIISE burpy voice. We were talking about the original 1992 Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie, which was out ages before the TV series. Starring Luke Perry and the foxy Kristy Swanson. Well, she was foxy then.

    Talking about the games I've been playing this week:
    • Killer 7 - bizzare control system in even more bizarre gameplay situations. Not great.
    • Batman Begins - it's actually surprisingly ok. Not great, but ok.

    WedJuly20 - Superdick

    Surfing around the www, I found this website. As a big superman comic fan (nerdalert!) since the mid-90's it was weird to look at some of the nasty history of our favourite do-gooder.

    Y'see, in the early years of the comics, the Superman franchise was worth a fortune, and even Lois and Jimmy Olsen had their own spin-off publications. As time wore on, and kids grew out of comic books, the stories went to total shite, and the people who wrote the comic plot completely lost it.

    It wasn't until the late 80's that a guy called John Byrne came in and started the whole thing from scratch, giving the characters and background a contemporary makeover. It was under his stewardship that the hugest-selling "The Death of Superman" came about. You can find a collection of some of the John Byrne works in four volumes: Man of Steel 1-4.

    The website, superdickery, shows how screwy the plots got before the 1980's revamp - featuring Superman acting like a complete asshole a lot of the time.

    Is it better as a fella to receive a reply from a lady after you asked her out:

    Jules: Hey, sewer rat may taste like pumpkin pie, but I'd never know 'cause I wouldn't eat the filthy motherf***er. Pigs sleep and root in shit. That's a filthy animal. I ain't eat nothin' that ain't got enough sense enough to disregard its own feces.
    Vincent: How about a dog? Dogs eats its own feces.
    Jules: I don't eat dog either.
    Vincent: Yeah, but do you consider a dog to be a filthy animal?
    Jules: I wouldn't go so far as to call a dog filthy but they're definitely dirty. But, a dog's got personality. Personality goes a long way.
    Vincent: Ah, so by that rationale, if a pig had a better personality, he would cease to be a filthy animal. Is that true?
    Jules: Well we'd have to be talkin' about one charmin' motherf***in' pig. I mean he'd have to be ten times more charmin' than that Arnold on Green Acres, you know what I'm sayin'?

    2FM superstar Mark McCabe called in the middle of the show tonight. He said I was predictable for putting him on the air when he called my mobile. Then maybe you shouldn't have called me, you willy-wally!

    Oh, it's good to be back. I always say it, but it is. Sinead in Sligo texted to say it was good to have me back as well, because I was a right dry-shite on Fento's slot last week. Wagon.

    Lots discussed in the show, with the obvious and most important being Oxegen 2005. What a f**cking brill weekend. Sunburn, beer, arguments, beer, more arguments, more beer, celebs, even more beer... oh yeah, and music. They're putting Oxegen 06 tickets on sale this Friday morning for the same price as this years, and I can see why - after such a great time, 70,000 people will be just getting over their hangovers to buy them for next summer's must-be-at event. Even if they wheeled out Boyzone, The Crazy Frog and Alicia's Attic (remember them?) for next year, if the crowd and the weather are on form, everything else will fall into place. I can't wait.

    Below are some pictures from the weekend, featuring meself, JP, our bud Stevie K and Emma (I WANT MORE HEINEKEN!) Ledden. Celebs we met were, in no particular order
    • Zoe Ball. No Fatboy Slim or Norman Cook.
    • Loads of old Blue Peter heads.

    ThuJune30 - Just a Quick Update

    Wahey! We drank Stella and got our groove back! All is well once again in the Blastquarters. I want to watch some West Wings I have on tape (they're gearing up for killing off the President, I think), so I'll make this quick.

    You know what's extremely annoying? When people spend most of their blog posts saying "sorry for not updating", which makes every post read the same. Stop doing it! Nearly every blog I read these days has people saying "sorry, had no time, but now I finally have time, I'll only really write about how I haven't been writing". Duh!

    Hi to Ian who emailed to ask how War of the Worlds was. I don't know how it was, because I slept in. I'll be going along to the movies to see it like everyone else when it gets released.

    I'm going to see Elton John on Saturday. Big Live 8 day, so it should be good. I'm on for Fenton next week, by the way, so the forecast is: a good chance of Floody.

    TEXT: "Hey I've been tinken u should hav a girly bit in d show.U now girls can ring in n talk about or troubles,u guys would learn somthin,frm de girl nxt door in clare." Hmm... An interesting point... Watch this space.

    Entertainment Update!
    TOBAGGGSB! Winner: Ray in Dublin
    TOBAGGGSB! Song: Basement Jaxx - Red Alert
    Tricky: She was a minister/registrar.

    Blast! extra: off-the-air ramblings:
    • JP: How come the salt in those sachets in takeaways is saltier than normal salt you'd get at home?
    • Ray: My broadband speed at home is sooo fast.
    • Are we going to Oxegen or what?
    See you later
