  • 14:51 Once you've read Ultimatum, you can't unread Ultimatum. #
  • 14:52 Thanks to Fine Gael, I have a handy checklist of my candidates. A part of me is tempted to give them a pity vote as thanks... #
  • 14:53 But then I think the magic words "Enda Kenny" and that motivation keels over and weeps for the future. #
  • 14:57 Hello #followfriday. How do you do? Today I would nominate @antonvowl and @sadbearhandbook, pleasing committers of bloggery both. #
  • 15:06 Halfway through season 1of Burn Notice. It's perfectly adequate, but it feels like it's capable of more than a modern day McGuyver / A-Team. #
  • 15:07 Breaking Bad is the business, though. I am clearly in a very angry temperament of late. #
  • 15:09 Is it because of society? Electoral dismay? The recession? Flighty standards? My intense capacity of suck at (in?) Team Fortress 2? #
  • 15:20 Hello followers I know not - why not introduce yourself? #
  • 15:23 Batman & Robin - proof positive that I will buy anything drawn by Frank Quitely. Also, "Crime is doomed." #
  • 15:25 Seaguy: Brazil by way of The Prisoner, but with a more decisively happy ending. Hopefully it won't be another 4 years for the next series. #
  • 15:27 Do you 1101000100111011101 often? #robotpickuplines #
  • 15:29 Tim Schaefer, hero: "Hey, if Activision liked it, then they should have put a ring on it. Oh great, now Beyonce is going to sue me too." #
  • 15:30 So Activision are suing Double Fine over Brutal Legend - shades of the 20th Century Fox / Warners lawsuit over Watchmen, much? #
  • 15:33 Brutal Legend will, of course, cure cancer, stop war and bring greater longevity to man, so you can't blame them for wanting a piece. #
  • 15:35 More importantly, it will mean growing up in the eighties with a love of ROCK had a greater purpose. Beyond ROCKIN' OUT, naturally. #
  • 15:36 @grantimahara Insert disk here? #robotpickuplines #
  • 15:39 Is that a phased plasma rifle with 40 watt range in your torso compartment, or are you just happy to see me? #robotpickuplines #
  • 15:49 And the commendation of services above and beyond the call of nerdery goes to tinyurl.com/qrhths (Note: Star Trek spoilers) #
  • 16:50 Gay scientists discover the Christian gene: bit.ly/12FOH #

  • 00:25 Egads! @skottieyoung needs 15 brave twitterers for a desperate, last ditch mission to save mankind - volunteer and show him the love. #
  • 12:37 20 brilliant bookcases: bit.ly/nOYiR #
  • 12:40 RT @DaveGorman - Please sign up to help keep libel laws out of scientific debate... it's a freedom of speech thang: bit.ly/ifLVF #
  • 19:49 RT charltonbrooker - Voting BNP gives you cancer. Pass it on. Save lives. #

  • 14:17 RT @chaptersbooks - A summer of David Foster Wallace's INFINITE JEST, anyone? is.gd/N1IB #
  • 14:25 RT @nicklocking - Unspeakable genius: batteriesfeelincluded.blogspot.com/2009/05/309.html #
  • 14:32 @froodie Oh God, here also it's now ten years since my own leaving cert? I'm even older than I let myself believe... #
  • 14:33 @keviz If you truly had man-flu, you couldn't be heard to complain because your teeth would be grit too hard. Gritted? Grote? GRR! #
  • 14:35 I have discovered an amazing power - if I get in touch with someone I haven't spoken to in more than a year, they will be getting married... #
  • 14:37 It's getting disturbing, and now I fear to call my single friends from college lest they too be inadvertently cast into an impending union. #
  • 14:39 @froodie The doctors are the worst - you can't help but feel all your achievements are for nought against them. Damn their altruistic hides! #
  • 14:45 @froodie Mind you, I decided against a secondary school reunion long ago. A college reunion is the one that would really screw my brain... #
  • 14:47 @froodie ... as they're the ones whose opinions matter (and by whom my brilliant-but-utterly-lazy self would feel embarrassed ) #
  • 14:48 @froodie Egads! Angst! Wangst! I do apologise, the sun is clearly getting to me. #
  • 14:48 RT @Wheeler - New blog post: All the Pixel Ladies. On Pixar and females. www.thepostgameshow.... #
  • 14:50 Utterly behind the times: The Orange Box really is great, isn't it? Team Fortress for Brian, Portal for Olivia... #
  • 14:51 It's a rare case of our following gender norms - typically she likes the mega-violence while I play the slow-thinkers... #
  • 14:53 Is this an Adam&Joe Song War? bit.ly/2q1gt #
  • 15:10 RT @jock4twenty - paxman at it again. tinyurl.com/oqgtjq. And he's right - still not as good as this one: tinyurl.com/or6cof #
  • 15:15 Day 2 of trying to find an MEP candidate that meets my unreligion requirements. I suspect this may be a Sisyphean task. #
  • 15:35 Along completely different lines now, for hither be the story bible of The Wire: bit.ly/aNVDv #
  • 16:31 Zuh? RT @jock4twenty RT @Robwilliams71: Star Trek. Strange bit.ly/Ne4Ev HOLY CRAP! #
  • 16:43 RT @Wheeler - This is awesome: Betty Bowers on the Biblical definition of marriage. bit.ly/hVnuC #
  • 16:43 Today really does seem to be a filthy day of retweeting. #

  • 00:50 Time to laugh? Time to Cry? Monkey Island returns... bit.ly/Ic159 But why is the sequel on the Wii and not the remake? #
  • 01:11 It's like the videogame world seeks to mock my console ownership. It's the Sega-Nintendo Wars all over again & I'm still on the wrong side.. #

  • 16:00 He used his fight money to buy two of every animal... then he beat them all up! www.teamfortress.com/soldier.htm #
  • 16:05 OBJECTION! bit.ly/fbcjg
    (My love for Phoenix Wright goes beyond reason...) #
  • 16:09 Goddamn you Brandon Graham - stop giving reasons for me to give you money... bit.ly/p2glI #
  • 16:11 @radiomaru Do not question your sanity - the font pain is real, and must be avenged. #
  • 16:28 He punched out all my blood! www.teamfortress.com/sandvich.htm #
  • 16:43 euprofiler.eu/ puts me closest to the Socialist Party and Labour. I did not expect that. #
  • 16:45 Sinn Fein follow them, but as ever they shall remain without my vote I can live with it. There are lines that won't be crossed. #
  • 16:45 Political Parties of the future - if you blow someone up, you lose my vote! See also Fiaanna Fail, Fine Gael, etc. #
  • 16:46 Alternatively, you could be the Greens, who just annoy me irrationally. #
  • 16:47 (and so, I break a promise I made to myself long ago that I would not air my views political in the public domain quite so casually) #
  • 17:15 Damn my shoddy memory - what is the name of the group that were protesting the Irish Church&State issues a month or so back? #
  • 17:16 (Said issues included the fact that all Irish government & legal officials were to swear allegiance to God...) #
  • 17:19 (The funniest thing was the christian who complained that atheists should just swear anyway, safe in the knowledge they didn't mean it...) #
  • 17:23 One day, someone will run on an atheistic platform. And they will ruin it form me by having a policy of anti-coffee or something. #

  • 01:09 He's like Gandhi, but better. He likes puppets. #
  • 14:19 @froodie The complete musical would be fantastic - I was sitting in awe at how they had managed to make an expected quiet ending EPIC... #
  • 14:19 @froodie (The main reason I checked it out was due to I Love You Man, which I loved and only saw due to my lack of a life in Waterford...) #
  • 14:20 @froodie (So, invigilating exams CAN make a difference!) #
  • 14:46 The big shame about Sarah Marshall is that they cut the airport goodbye - it would have really balanced the movie. #
  • 14:47 But of Criticland I must ask: what movies were you watching? Because like In Bruges before it, Sarah Marshall was completely underrated. #
  • 14:50 Did I actually just see a political party message that read "Tired of that other shower...?" This country wants to break me. #

  • 11:48 Cunning lady! Have your tiny child give me religious pamphlets and place emphasis of refusal's evil upon me! You win this round... #
  • 12:08 Ah, old self-indulgent comics and photoshop, you bear me yet some purpose. #
  • 12:28 @chaptersbooks Nope - if it's that bad or boring, you just stop reading and move on to the next book. And then try to fob it off on someone. #
  • 12:31 Nyeurgh - must... tidy... house... but... it's... sunny... out... #
  • 12:32 (Who am I trying to kid? I fear the sun, our vendetta, and all the evil it holds in stock for me.) #
  • 13:25 I won't play GTA out of strange, moral hang-ups, but my brother shakes his head when I mention this... tinyurl.com/lwzwrz #
  • 13:36 ARGH ARGH I have had three different religious groups at the door so far today ARGH ARGH ARGH #
  • 13:37 And yet! If I went around preaching the joys of atheism, I would be accused of religious intolerance and believing in nothing. #
  • 13:38 Okay religions - whoever can effect and subsequently bring evidence of having stopped the other groups from annoying me gets me. Deal? #
  • 13:40 Until then, I shall play my heathen Satansex music at full volume to scare away minions. I am upsetting a very nice estate to do this. #
  • 13:41 First: KISS! And their Greatest Hits. Cower, brief mortals, then flee before The Rock and The Roll! #
  • 19:16 Teenagers running around Stephen's Green with a Buster Sword replica - the likelihood of their realising what the sword symbolises? Minimal. #
  • 19:19 Rereading Scott Pilgrim 4 on the DART is a pleasant way to distract oneself from the weird, formerly seeping stains that you hope was beer. #
  • 19:21 Now to dig back into David Foster Wallace's non-fiction as a means of prepping my frail meat-thinker for Infinite Jest, round 2... #
  • 19:22 (I was terminally distracted when reading it a few years ago, and have held off starting anew until I had forgotten sufficient detail) #

  • 23:34 Day 2 of rewatching The Lord of the Rings (extended), and into The Two Towers. So flawed, yet so awesome... #
  • 23:34 @evilmonk And then I shoved it where the sun don't shine. In the corner of the room. #
  • 23:35 @slovobooks I didn't like to assume! #
  • 23:37 Decaff coffee - the methadone of 11.30pm... #
  • 00:24 I really should get around to doing a new icon. I mean, it's not like I lack for pen, paper, scanner and photoshop... #
  • 00:33 Oh Aragorn, you are the Man Crush to end all Man Crushes. Except possibly Ryan Reynolds, but Olivia has baggsied him. #
  • 12:09 Stretch limos? To confirmation?! I'm not keen on organised religion, but even I have to like this: tinyurl.com/ltclo9 #
  • 16:14 Sackboy the superhero? Nein! Nine! 9... www.filminfocus.com/focusfeatures/film/9 #
  • 22:53 RT @serafinowicz - Come and get it... bit.ly/WvxMr - TOY STORY 3 TEASER! #

  • 21:54 @radiomaru Curiosity Cola is better than both; the 80's were better, but I heart Gambit; FLCL is better!; until the next thing comes along. #
  • 21:55 I have a lucky crack pipe, but I'm too scared to use it. Also I keep putting bubbles in it. And it's really a normal pipe. But it's mine! #
  • 21:56 30 Awesomely Bad Unicorn Tattoos: bit.ly/VPwD7 #
  • 22:00 Irish Rail guy who showed no concern when Olivia was smacked in the crutches by the barrier? ON THE LIST. #
  • 22:00 A particularly egregious fact, since the Sandymount DART staff are gold-fried awesome. #
  • 22:04 The dude was lucky my 5 ft 6 10 stone frame was one the other side of the barrier, because GAPPA POW! My rage would have been Very Manly. #
  • 22:05 Instead, I proved my Very Manliness by erecting a corner shelf unit in under three minutes. TESTOSTERONE AHOY! #
  • 22:32 Movies in Four Frames: moviesinframes.tumblr.com/ #

  • 19:12 @GailSimone The Uncanny Former-Gentlemen... #
  • 19:14 @froodie There is no question - HARUHI! Or if you're still on the fence... The (even better) Melancholy of Haruhi-Chan... #
  • 19:29 I Kill Giants: The best thing Joe Kelly has done since Deadpool? Possibly! #
  • 19:30 (I haven't seen much by him in the interim - some X-men, Spider-man and Steampunk, which was pretty but verging on incomprehensibility...) #
  • 19:31 The 13 Clocks - a book I've been trying to find since its recommendation in second year of college. It's... Great! #
  • 19:33 The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzimiya is hilarious, but The Melancholy of Haruhi-chan? Side-splitting. I have no guts left to laugh up. #
  • 19:34 Eve no Jikan should not be as fascinating as it is. See also Eden of the East. Neither have giant robots! #
  • 19:36 The Thick of It: Funnier than you. Just accept it. #
  • 19:41 Today is a day to dwell on what is good in life. I have it on good authority. That authority is Conan, and he should know. #
  • 19:43 Tragedy - my copy of Soul Eater: Soul Art arrived, but with the second half an accidental reprint of the first! #
  • 19:44 They're not ugly pages, but if I wanted to look at them twice, I'd go back to the start of the book... #
  • 19:56 Want to know about Twilight but not suffer through the books? Wikipedia letting you down? Solution! vampirely.wordpress.com/ #
  • 20:04 @housetoastonish have killed comics. But will the law touch them? They're at least 50% the law... #housetoastonishkilledcomicsihaveproof #
  • 20:09 Vidi vici veni... #3wordsaftersex #
  • 20:17 Put it where?! #3wordsduringsex #
  • 22:57 RT @wheeler - Protect singing from the homosexual menace. www.thepostgameshow.... #propfail #
  • 23:23 Glee: the TV series that will conquer Claire McGuinness's brain. #
  • 23:24 I'm peeved that, thanks to the new Terminator movie, I can't call Claire "McG" without confusing things. #
  • 23:24 Unless of course Director McG and College Sidekick McG are... ONE AND THE SAME?! #
  • 23:26 It would make sense - she doesn't like Terminator and could easily transform a cause'n'effect chase movie series into Transformers 2019... #
  • 23:27 She also thinks Clint Eastwood looks like an old lady (heresy!), but I don't think that has anything to do with it. #
  • 23:29 And now that I have stumbled onto her plot, I have endangered you all. #

  • 21:47 Summer movie summary thus far! Let the Right One In > Star Trek > I Love You Man > [lots of things] > Wolverine #
  • 21:48 Presumably, the list will soon read "Let The Right One In > Lots of things > Terminator > Transformers... #
  • 21:50 I didn't hate the 1st Transformers, but sweet jeenies, if I see that trailer once more I may foresake the delights of Megan Fox fore'er... #

  • 14:05 Yesterday: The house is rearranged - hurray! Today: There's a big black line and splodgy black pixels going across my monitor - boo! #
  • 14:12 @keviz: All electricity bills are hell now. A law was passed, then a bill issued - my heater breaking down is how I cut costs! #
  • 14:15 RT @warrenellis: For those of you who don't know, a "heart boner" is a boner that comes out of your heart when you love something. #
  • 14:19 RT @Paul_Cornell announces the conclusion of Captain Britain and MI-13: www.paulcornell.com and my pull list gets more depressing. #
  • 14:23 Was it @mitchbenn who suggested the term Spamelas? Because I have gotten a lot of them recently. #
  • 14:28 After nearly a year, I've finally convinced Olivia to watch the second half of The Wire season 5. No one is sure how or why she stopped... #
  • 14:50 €55 to redirect mail for only three months?! Wasn't this service free, what with it being paid for by my taxes? #
  • 14:53 The one of the black lines of doom now stretches from side to side 'pon my monitor. #
  • 14:54 The time grows near, and the lamentation of my wallet grows e'er louder. #
  • 14:55 It'd be less aggravating if I didn't have to pay for a TV licence to fund channels I don't actually have or want... #
  • 14:58 (The TV is used to watch DVDs, play games and stare at wistfully - it's frustrating to have to pay for an unsought service) #
  • 14:59 Now closes the computer while I attempt substitute a dying monitor for my old Philips LCD that's been sitting in the spare room. #
  • 18:07 Victory! The TV works, and now I wonder why I didn't think of using this much larger screen much sooner... #
  • 18:14 Others might worry about how my brother found this video. Me? I just want it... bit.ly/1nT3L #
  • 19:38 Nice Muscle! But... why is there a sheep?! #

  • 11:47 @skottieyoung X-Statix is great, and weirdly touching in places. But be sure to read the "new" X-Force run that precedes it. #

  • 18:14 I am now embroiled in an epic struggle for eBay, giant robots, the future of capitalism and my faith in the human spirit... #
  • 18:14 Also, I cannot decide if I would prefer pizza or noodles. #
  • 18:19 I've just realised that it's a year today since I began living like an adult, rather than a post-student, and moved into my current house. #
  • 18:21 365 days of clean living, comfortable accommodation and a bedroom whose 4 walls I can't touch simultaneously. Happy day! #
  • 23:19 All men, upon entering a new area, will immediately work out how to wage an awesome battle there, based on available terrain and resources. #
  • 23:20 Examples include but are not limited to banks, hotel lobbies, shopping centres, friend's houses, random streets, funerals, Sunday mass. #
  • 23:25 Resources include pipes, tools (powered or not), wheels, bollards, keys, conveniently dropped guns, ramps, skateboards, coffins, irony. #
