ALton Towers (which is on my visit list for this Summer) has come up with a great way to promote its new ride, Nemesis: Sub Terra...
Watch as members of the British Public think they are about to fall down a elevator shaft!
In honour of yesterday's MAN Day at London fashion Week, today's bits & bobs is the best of menswear and trends from around the interwebs. I trawl through countless sites til all hours, so you don't have to!
The freedom of having a car is something that cannot be described. It is simply something that has to be experienced! If you are considering learning to drive, I advise so much that you bite the bullet, and book some lesson. Yes, at first it will be terrible, but one day, like people repeatedly tell you whether you ask or not, you will just "get it".
Anyways since passing my test back in December (7 months after having my first lesson) I have been out in the car every chance I've had! Yes, petrol is expensive, but the destination is always worth it, and seeing as I live in Co. Clare, probably the most scenic county in this wonderful Island of ours, I have countless places to visit.
Last weekend our destination was Kilkee. The famous cliff was has recently been repaved, and handlebars have been erected too, so the chances off falling off the cliffs now is slimmer than ever. I still held on to the rails (for dear life) just to be safe.
Afterwards Pa, Fergal & Myself walked along the beach and had lunch. Packed from home. Why spend (insert ridiculous price here) for a below average pub grub carvery, when you can throw a few things together from your own kitchen!
Anyways it was a fantastic day, not only because the weather stayed sunny right up until we left, but because it made me excited. Excited for the Summer, for all the places I can go, things I can see, and memories I can make.

"Cameron Hunter lives the perfect life -- heir to a legal legacy, top of the class, beautiful girlfriend - but even he has his secrets.
Who is she?
Why is she back?
And what will his girlfriend think?"
How great does this new Aussie webseries look? Describes as Home & Away meets Gossip Girl, SYD2030 looks set to bring the drama, scandal and sex that we all associate with friends Down Under...
SYD2030 starts March 2012!

This month's Issue has an interview with Harry Potter himself, in which he mostly talks about trying to shake of the image of Harry Potter. Ain't gonna happen Harry. Accept it.
Anyways Harry gets asked who his male celebrity crush is, and he answered Ryan Gosling! I have to say for a wizard he has great taste in me! 50 points for Gryffindor!

Black Herds of The Rain is a film documenting Conor Harrington's trip home to Ireland in the summer of 2011 to paint 3 walls. The journey and subsequent paintings are inspired by Austin Clarke's poem The Lost Heifer. 2 of the new wall pieces were in my hometown of Ennis.

How amazing does Adele look on the cover of US Vogue... Last year British Vogue came under harsh critisim for their Adele cover, which featured a close cropped picture of the singers face...
Glad to see that Anna & Co. have chosen to show off her bangin' body, curves and all... even if it does look a little over photoshopped!

I love this video, its sad, but it has a great and important message!
It's time to move on. Our country, and all of us, need to move from a fossil fuel past to a renewable energy future.
The mood in Britain has turned very much against the Big Six energy companies. And it's not hard to see why. People are fed up with the unethical pricing, complex tariffs, awful customer service and the dire lack of investment in new sources of green energy.
It's become quite unbearable, self evidently. Even the government are calling on people to leave the Big Six.
People:Power can bring change to the energy sector -- when people join Ecotricity they vote with their energy bills - and the more that do so the better. Together we can harness the energy bills of Britain and direct them to a proper outcome - the creation of a Green, energy independent Britain -- a Green Britain.
So last weekend I spent a few (cold) days in the wonderful city of Manchester... Its snowed all day Saturday, so after spending and hour walking around the city, we looked like we had just climbed Everest, snow covered from head to toe...
We ended up finding shelter in down Canal Street, in a wonderful palace called The Molly House, they served great Tapas, so it was perfect on a cold day.
The nightlife was equally fantastic, as were the prices... Going out and having a great night, while only parting from £20 out of your wallet, this would be so unheard of in Ireland.
All in all it was a great weekend with my man Pa, my main gays Pat & Alan, and mew friends Claire and Fergal!
