Had a good day today, went to the Hugh Lane gallery in Dublin, remembered why I love Paris so much! Had a look at some works by Degas, Manet, Osbourne.. really liked Sean Scully’s work especially ‘Sandra’ and I, of course must mention the unbelieveable work by Yinka Shonibare, inspired by Gulliver’s Travels.
I also bought Oscar Wilde’s The Picture of Dorian Gray so a bit of an arty day all round.
I got confirmation also about my show on DCUFm. So now I’m trying to come up with a name for it.. currently at number one is… NessyTime, like HammerTime ?! I’m also going to be looking for some fellow DCU students to do some bits on the show… I’m going to make the show a Nessy Production for DCU Fm!
Also on the Nessy Productions front, I’ve been working like a maniac story boarding m first music video.. and before this one has even been started I’ve been asked to do a second one 🙂 So one is for a rock band and the second for a Hip Hop emcee ! Looking forward to both!

I Just had to post this. Made by my old friend Derek O’Connor.. Cracking job
What a week! It’s all busy busy and this weekend wasn’t any different. I attended a two day training/seminar with Larry Jordan who told us all about Final Cut Pro and all that surrounds it.. Really interesting. www.larryjordan.biz Two eight hour days on a Saturday and Sunday though kinda make my head sore! Need a days sleep! and some time to let all the information sink into my little head!
I’ve added two pages.. Writings and Remediation… just bits and bobs I write that you might like to read, like my Little piece on Pere Lechaise, Paris and a 1500 word essay on Remediation: From The Printing Press to Blogging.. any comments are welcome. Would love to hear opinions on this. The more I read on the subject the more interested I become. I think Henry Jenkins is one very clued in man! Read the essay and check out this blog! www.henryjenkins.org
This week is Rag Week in college and DCUFm is on air.. should be good – I may also be doing an interview this week with DJ Flip and Stretch from Foreign Legion (Oakland, CA, USA) who are about to go on a European Tour! Stretch has the coolest SF Giants hat I had ever seen! Which reminds me that Spring Training isn’t too far away! I can feel my insomnia kicking in!
Back in college after the weekend. Went to see the Bodies exhibition in the Ambassador.. mental… really good. Well run too.. MCD did a good job with it.
Just had an interview for DCUFM so I’ll find out if I got a position for the new semester – will know on Wednesday… I’ve also got the go ahead to do a prerecorded show on arts and culture which I have a few ideas for…
