Well Holy God! Did ya ever think there’d be another Miley to rival our own Miley Byrne? Apparently Myley Cyrus is a young actress/singer who stars “as Miley Stewart/”Hannah Montana” in the television series Hannah Montana on the Disney Channel.” I’d never hear of her before coming across this post on WordPress.com but what do you know, she’s famous! That explains all those Hannah Montana lunchboxes in the shops.
Meanwhile, the real Miley was a character in the Irish soap Glenroe that enthralled the Irish nation during the 80’s and 90’s. Mick Lally who played the character recently joined TG4’s Ros na Run. Must set that up to record later. He also released a single that flew up the charts to hit the no. 1 spot in Ireland. Check it out on Youtube. There is also an atrocious remix of the Glenroe theme song by Dustin. Oh dear, prepare to have your ears assaulted if you click that link!
A song from the series, The By-Road to Glenroe, performed by Mick Lally, was released as a single in Ireland in 1990, featuring the Jim Lockhart version of the theme tune as its B-side, and reached Number 1 in the Irish singles chart.
I did a double take when I heard about Miley Cyrus, thinking of Miley from Glenroe of course. The same happened when I first heard Fergie on the radio. I thought, “she doesn’t have such a bad voice for a British Royal.”
Well, the Irish economy is tanking and is heading towards recession. Last time things were this bad was in the Eighties so here’s a few memories from that decade. After yesterday’s rather technical post, I need a nice squeaky throw away nostalgic one today.

OK, so what if Charlie Harper sucks? The main character of Two and a Half Men is lazy and selfish, a drunk and womaniser, but he sure is popular!
Hello to all my new Australian visitors!
You’ll already know about the Irish version of Jump Around by Des Bishop if you’re a regular reader here, but if you have missed previous episodes, please watch the last episode of “In The Name Of The Fada”. It’s on RTE 1 tonight at 10:15pm. Sky+ is set to record it here.
We just watched the 5th episode in New York and Boston and totally enjoyed it. That Korean guy in Times Square had a brilliant grasp of Irish even though he’d never been to Ireland. I’m looking forward to the last episode, even if it does make me feel embarrassed that I’ve forgotten so much of the language…
“Ta sé fucking brilliant!”

Sunday 30th March at 9pm on Sky 2. If you’re a fan that’s all you need to know
Stargate: Ark Of Truth, the feature length episode which followed the last and final series of Stargate SG1 was released on DVD in the US at the start of March according to Barry’s post. I thought I’d have to wait until the region 2 DVD became available but Sky ponied up the dosh and I presume it was shown during the week on Sky 1? I’m still catching up on my regular programming through Sky+ and haven’t hit last week yet so I missed any trailers if there were any.
Sky+ is all set to record Ark Of Truth tomorrow night! I hope it’s better than the drivel they served for the final episode! Here’s a trailer to wet your appetite. I think it just might be a winner.
When Aunt Irma visits the IT Crowd office it can only mean hilarious consequences for all involved. Even Roy and Moss suffer from menstrual cycle symptoms and grow irritable, delicate and emotional. Not to mention the breast tenderness..
It all blows up when Moss emails everyone he knows in the IT world asking, “Do we have PMT?” describing the symptoms in detail. Riots are the result and a website, ladyproblems.com is created!
The producers of the show did actually register that domain, but it’s a shame they didn’t do anything with it. Even putting up a landing page with that image above on it would have been better. At least Warner tried a bit harder with “2 and a Half Men”, charlieharpersucks.com actually exists! Oh well.

Watch this episode on Youtube: part 1, part 2, part 3. (Watch the previous episode too, The Haunting of Bill Crouse. That was so funny I almost hurt myself laughing..)
On to series 2 of The IT Crowd, I hope there’ll be a third one!
Just how many bad days can Jack Bauer have?
Mark says “24 has ripped off all four Die Hard movies all at once.” with this trailer and it looks like he’s right. Every season gets bigger and bigger. I can’t wait ’til it starts! The Sky one page doesn’t have any start details, and Sky+ shows it’s not on next Sunday. Waiting, waiting, waiting ..
Some said “Even The Todd wouldn’t wear those” but I think he would. In a recent episode of Scrubs, Todd had a tshirt with the url, thetoddtime.com emblazoned on it. Fearful for what I’d find there, I visited thetoddtime.com and discovered something so unreal, so shocking that I had to share it with you.
If the Quicktime movie doesn’t load for you, someone kindly uploaded it to Youtube as well. Click the “Read more” link to view it as I want to spare the sensibilities of the casual visitor here. It’s so YEEEEA!!!

I watched this episode of Scrubs the other night and I cannot get this song out of my head. As I’m not one to suffer in silence you lot might as well enjoy it too. Be glad you’re not in my head! Maniac, maniac … …
