birrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrdman!

harvey-birdman

Harvey Birdman Attorney At Law is one of my all time favourite TV shows. Way back in the 60’s, there used to be a show called Birdman. It was about a man who had wings and could fly and generally fought crime. This is a parody of it. Harvery Birdman now fights crime…in the courtroom! He defends such clients as Fred Flintstone, Scooby Doo, The Jetsons and many others. The secondary characters are what really add to it, especially the boss and owner of the law firm, Phil Ken Sebben. He’s off the wall batshit insane! He’s great

expensive much?

I really, really want one of the new iPhone 3G S’. They can do an awful lot, they are very easy to pick up and use (always a bonus with me), they look pretty cool and they generally are the shit in my opinion. That added speed is a big bonus for me. I can be regarded as someone who is quite impatient and wants things on demand. I’m all for the speed and quickness

But the price. Oh woe is the price. If one goes bill pay here in Ireland, the cheapest you pay monthly is €40 and the phone costs you €200 AND you’re tied to an 18 month contract with them. If you go pay as you go, it costs €500. No matter how much I want the iPhone, I just can’t justify spending that kind of money on a phone. Maybe one day when I win the lotto. Or if I become the new Allan Dixon

Google wave

If you have an hour and a half, I would well recommend watching the video below. It’s the unveiling of Google’s latest product “Google Wave”. If this product takes off, it could revolutionise the way we communicate with each other online. It truly is remarkable and needs to be seen to be believed.

Music ha ha

Found two very good music videos.

The first is a piss take of “Jizz in my Pants” which in itself is a piss take:

The second is a cover of Hot N’ Cold, a song that will always remind me of 4th year!

Restaurant Reviewed: East and Yammamori

I think I’ll start a new bit on reviewing restaurants. If I get going to a new one once a week, say on a saturday, I’ll be only delighted.

This week though, I’ve managed to hit two. Firstly, Yammamori. Great Japanese spot. Lovely staff. I had beef teryaki (I’m lost on spelling). It was yummy! It was beef done how I asked for on a bed of stir-fried vegetables soaked in a sweet sauce with a bowl of rice. I did my best with the chopsticks but alas, I still haven’t got the hang. I caved and asked for a knife and fork. Cheaper than Wagamamas too! I’ll deffo go back.

During the week, myself, Jim and DMcg hit the Korean spot known as East. This place is very out of the way and I only by chance noticed it out of the corner of my eye. We decided to give it a lash. We were delighted to see that they had a pre-theatre menu as we were on our way to the theatre. How fitting. To start, Dave had seaweed salad, Jim had sushi and I had beef of sorts. But the guy gave it to us in such a way so we could all share! It was great! The for main, Jim ordered a big plate of chicken something. Looked tasty. Dave and myself got a sizzling beef of sorts. But here’s the great part. There’s a grill on the table and he came out with the raw dish and cooked it in front of us! It was amazing. And delicious. We all got 3 side plates of various bits as a side too. I had chocolate fudge cake for desert, Dave had NY cheesecake and…I forget what Jim had. Again, all yummy. And here’s the punch line – all for only 20 quid!! Amazing scenes. Really a great place and I would well recommend it.

Thats quite a lot of Asia for this week. I’ll go for either Italian or Mexican next week. Stay tuned!
