Eoghan Heaslip's new album

Eoghan and the band

Eoghan Heaslip recorded his next album live at Core church this Sunday. So far, it sounds pretty good.

Dan Boreham and Paul Mills were in the studios the last two days here in the office recording the guitar overdubs. Very loud, and very cool. This is definitely a heavier album than Mercy.

Dan plays with a band called Kindle, and wasn't too happy to see what we were using their debut album for: propping open the toilet window, eh, when necessary.

According to Google...

According to Google, Dan James is the President of the Internet. This makes me the Hottest woman on the planet. It looks like I'm Ms. Colan's competition for the title.

I can't figure it out. Maybe it's my fine ass, my poorly shaven facial hair or my penis. I don't mind; I've finally received the recognition I obviously deserve.

It is like an itch that I cannot scratch

The biggest question I am facing in my life right now is driving itself into my conciousness again and again. No matter what I do, I don't seem to be able to surpress it. It attacks, is repelled, rallies and returns. It must be stopped. So here it is:

Is the correct pronunciation for Tuesday twosday or chooseday?

DJ Dave on the decks

My first official radio show is on this Sunday, between 4 and 5 pm, on 89.9 Spirit FM. You should be able to hear this station all around Dublin city.

Radio, radio

Looks like I was Spirit FM's first DJ. From 2pm to 3pm today I played some songs, and talked a little crap. Songs in my playlist included:

  • Jay Wilson's "What is it about your face" (I think that's what he called it)
  • StrongBad's "The System is Down"
  • The Soviet National Anthem

It was only a test broadcast, but it was a great laugh. We had a moment's silence for the tree that was sacrificed for the sake of our uplink (we have a 2.4GHz microwave link from the studio in Stillorgan to the transmission site on Three Rock), which was cut short by "Intergalactic" by the Beastie Boys.

Maybe I'll do it again.

Ireland's first Christian radio station

Posted by Dave on February 05, 2004 at 05:12 PM | Comments (4)

Former male model Dave Heffernan is set to launch Spirit FM, Ireland's first Christian radio station, at midnight this Friday. It will be on 89.9FM.

Spirit FM

I work in the same office as Dave, and it has been very busy. On Tuesday we had the microwave uplink installed (it waves quite a lot in the wind I can tell you), and today they had a test broadcast from Three Rock.

You should be able to hear Spirit FM anywhere in Dublin, on 89.9FM, every weekend for the next three months. You may even hear myself and Paul, but I think our ideas for a radio programme might increase the libel insurance premium.

By the way, Dave says, "all donations welcome... kerching".

The sky was beautiful today

The setting sun turned the clouds above Dublin into a ribbons of flame.

Sweet.

Joanne Colan: Hottest woman on the planet

Posted by Dave on February 02, 2004 at 11:09 AM | Comments (13)

Update: Apparently Ms Colan might be the new host of Rocketboom.

The best part of that article is that she will apparently bring “the added credibility of an English accent”. Because you know, you just can’t trust those Yanks!

What would you do if you had three wishes? Dunstan has decided that Anna Riley, female lead in Keeping the Faith, is so perfect a partner that he "shan't want or need for anything else". If that wish was granted, he would gladly give away the other two.

Predictably, the first comments were less about wishes and much more to do with which woman was the hottest. I am not one to be left out. The hottest woman on the planet is Joanne Colan.

Ms Colan

I confess that the Joanne Colan I imagine could very well be as fictional as Anna Riley, but based on the incomplete picture I gleaned from MTV's European Top 20 she was smart, funny and (in the best possible way) sarcy. She was also exceedingly attractive, in both her appearance and voice; it was probably this that made the biggest impression on me. Not only was what she saying usually amusing, the way she said it was wonderful.

I've been annoyed by the obvious and blunt sexuality all around these days (perhaps only a personal preference), but Joanne's seemed to these foolish eyes and ears as being at once subtle and powerful. Don't confuse what I mean. In Britney Spears' video "Toxic", Britney spills water on the lap of a male passenger and rubs it off with a napkin. He grips the arms of his seat, from the looks of things overwhelmed by sensation. This kind of sexuality is (at least for me) boring. I mean the opposite. I mean the sexuality characterised by wry smile and the hinting glance.

And now, I shall laugh at how much I am like most other heterosexual males on the planet, despite previous airs to the contrary. I'll explain that later, but in the meantime: haha, Dave; haha.

Window dressing

Regular visitors will notice a much different, and far clearer, colour scheme. I've added in rounded corners to the main content area and the menu, and I've changed the branding of the site to be more obvious.

The new colour scheme really helps to bring out the photos on this site. You can see examples of this in the Photography section.

Thanks to Fuller` on the Boards.ie IRC channel for noticing that the site didn't validate. I've fixed that, and will now be turning my attention to the sidebar.
