Thought this in the Guardian was worth considering, an essay on just how difficult it is now to review computer games. I always used a Mac so games were fairly thin on the ground back in the day. Things have, obviously, changed since then, but what has long struck me is how over-hyped most games […]A

When I was young suspended animation was the way we would get to the stars. I use the ?we? lightly. It was the cheapo non-Faster Than Light way forward. Sure, it looked a bit dangerous, but at least it didn?t involve a radical reworking of cosmological constants. Back then the problems of building mechanical structures […]A

One of the oddities of music in the 1980s and even well into the 1990s was just how inaccessible it was. Take motorik. I only infrequently heard Neu or Can during that time and certainly didn?t have an album until the mid to late1990s. And so my view of them and motorik in general was, […]A

There?s useful three page overview of the five year anniversary of the Bailout in the SBP by Jack Horgan Jones. But two aspects caught my attention in particular. Firstly what Marky Blyth of Brown University in the US has noted. As the report notes? ?he is scathing in his assessment of Irish fiscal consolidation. ?Two […]A

This is worrying. I heard a bit about this yesterday. A protest on the site where the first set of modular homes are to be located in Dublin has ended. It is understood that ground work on the site by contractors will resume in the morning. They claimed the modular housing project puts plans by […]A

Good extract in the SBP from Grandpa The Sniper – The Remarkable Story of a 1916 Volunteer, which considers Frank Shouldice?s grandfathers participation in the events of that year. The small details resonate: Warily, Patrick J Kelly, a 25-year old sharpshooter stationed around Church Street with ?G? Company trudges into Richmond Barracks. ?Seated along the […]A

Finally got around to reading Sean O’Callaghan on Connolly in the Irish Times. As I did so the above question came to my mind when faced with this…and looking at comments btl I see I’m not the only one. Connolly attempted to introduce Marxism to Ireland through the agency of extreme nationalism which he knew […]A

If you want a good sense of the overall state of matters – the broad brush strokes of electoral politics, can I recommend this graphic from the Irish Times which plots party support (excluding undecideds) since May 2006. The tale it tells is of FF predominance cut away rapidly in 2008, and never regained. Fully […]A
