Yours Truly, Angry Mob

Been a very unusual week here in Junkmale land.

Firstly there was the small matter of Local Elections to a Devolved Government in Northern Ireland that i want no part of.
Off i went to vote anyway only to discover, much to my embarrassment that my Driving Licence had expired. Oops!
Now that i have IRA terrorist Mitchell McLaughlin as my MLA though, things can surely only get better.

Received, about 5th hand, some rather upsetting news about a friend of mine. Who then proceeded to verbally lambast me for having the audacity to be.......concerned? Cleared up later though after being informed that i am so desperate for a relationship that i will spend years cultivating a friendship on the remote possibility of having one! The words Don't and Flatter Yourself sprung to mind.

On the subject of verbal lambasment, my favourite blog http://www.everythingulster.com/ has been all cock-a-hoop this week. What with the Elections and what not.
Normally, Beano is pretty spot on with his news and views. This time however, i disagreed.
Debate is one thing, lowering oneself to personal abuse in order to win an argument is other.
Catch yourself on...indeed!

Stranglers drummer Jet Black is very ill with some sort of heart complaint.

Highlight of the week is the new album from Kaiser Chiefs..Yours Truly, Angry Mob. Its really rather good.

And then there is those generous Chaps at Sony. Not only will Europe have to pay a hugely inflated price for the PS3, but also, according to a 'reliable source' a good percentage of PS2 software will not work on PAL consoles. Thanks guys.

Last, but by no means, least - Loughgall 0 Crusaders 5. Now theres something you don't see every day.

I didn't realise. Where you talking about this post?

"Not only will Europe have to pay a hugely inflated price for the PS3, but also, according to a 'reliable source' a good percentage of PS2 software will not work on PAL consoles."

I've heard this too. They're cutting costs by using software emulation instead of hardware emulation for some bits. As if charging 450 squid wasn't ridiculous enough!

Sigh. That's what I get for commenting at half 3 in the bloody morning!

Oh, and are you a Crues man too? Good taste in blogs and football teams!

Yep, EU is my favourite blog. Usually check in once a day to see whats going on. Always, good, intelligent debate. And yes, watching the Crues for over 30 years now, through good and bad. The question is, when is Baxter going to bring Darren Sterling back from the Welders and show Larmour the door?
