Modern Warfare 3 Finally Revealed

After months of speculation it is finally here. Over the last few days there have been several comprehensive leaks about Modern Warfare 3. In response Activision have released 4 brand spanking new teaser trailers to officially announce the impending arrival of the latest installment of the Call of Duty franchise and after watching the lot I am so excited I think I peed a little.

So, while I go change, you can enjoy the teaser trailers below: Continue reading “Modern Warfare 3 Finally Revealed”

New Single: Comply or Die

Comply or Die are a Belfast/Bangor based Band who, since 2008, have brought us a fresh post-punk sound. Their latest single, ‘Shanghaied’, is a taster of their upcoming full length ‘Depths’ and will be available as a free download.

I have had the opportunity to listen to the new track and it is a doozy. It’s a hardrocking little number with a distinctly punk coating and a resonance that will shake the monkeys from the trees. Like ‘Stiff Little Fingers’ on acid, the boys have laid down some serious beats to surprise, mesmerize and sodomise the senses.

Prepare yourself because here it is: Continue reading “New Single: Comply or Die”

Roy Walker at the Udderbelly Festival

On Friday 6th May 2011 I hit the big 30. The biggest difficulty in this was deciding what to do in order to mark such an occasion and I think, on originality alone, I should win an award. I went to see the Legend that is Roy Walker do stand up in an upside down purple cow.

Ok, I know this sounds like I sat at home, dropped some acid and blogged about the consequences but this did indeed take place. I’m sure you’ve seen the purple ‘Udderbelly’ cow on E4. Well for 12 weeks, at the Southbank centre in London, the cow in question has set up residence Continue reading “Roy Walker at the Udderbelly Festival”

It’s My Party And I’ll Throw Faeces If I Want To

So, it’s nearly here. The day I have been dreading. Tomorrow morning I will awaken, no longer in my twenties. I will be 30 years old.

It’s a terrifying age to be. All prior landmark birthdays are cause to celebrate because we spend so many years wishing to be older and now I reach the first where I wish I was young. At least when you hit 40 you should be well prepared for Death’s cold hand reaching for your shoulder for that really is the end of all things (see blog ten years from now for info).

Anyway, I have spent my day looking for reasons turning 30 is a good thing and I can find very little apart from unencouraging shite such as ‘you are an adult’ and ‘you can start living now’. Thanks, here’s me thinking I was a dead child. Continue reading “It’s My Party And I’ll Throw Faeces If I Want To”

Spider-man Takes on the IRA

I have never really been a comic person. As I kid I read Buster and the Beano. When a little older I tried X-Men and if I’m honest found it hard going. I got into Marvel in the late 80s  through the now legendary cartoons. It started with Spider-man and his Amazing Friends. You know the one where Spider-man, Firestar and Ice-man lived together in an apartment that turned into some sort of command centre. I loved that, when all the furniture changed into all those 80s style computers when the big fire monster attacked the city. Also, Firestar was Hot (pardon the pun).
