Fond Of Food And Hilarious Comedy?

Fond Of Food And Hilarious Comedy?

if you are then run out and buy the new DVD from Dylan Moran - Like Totally, make yourselves a few toasties, crack open a beer / cider / airfix glue; whatever you're into and prepare to nearly die laughing. I've been giggling my head off, screwing it back on and then laughing it off again all weekend.

'Like Totally' is a follow up to Dylan's first full stand-up show; Monster back in 2004. Everyone gets a touch of stick in 'Like Totally' especially the Yanks, his fellow Irish, the English and the Germans who he describes as sounding "like typewriters eating tinfoil while being kicked downstairs"...

Don't be put off by that review on the link up above from Sexy Librarian. She's clearly not well...

Johnny Was 2006. Starring Colin Stewart.

Postby Louis P. Burns aka Lugh » Sun Dec 31, 2006 4:38 pm

Johnny Was. 2006
^ Click title to watch trailer

Wikipedia wrote:Johnny Doyle escapes a violent past in Ireland to lie low in London, until his former mentor Flynn breaks out of Brixton Prison, hellbent on derailing the Irish peace process with a few well-placed bombs. Unable to escape Brixton, they are trapped together in Johnny's anything-but-safe safe house, sandwiched between a Rastafarian reggae pirate radio station upstairs and a West Indian Yardie crack-dealing gangster, Julius, downstairs.


Read the full synopsis of the film here. The original soundtrack for this film was written and produced by Adrian Sherwood. I am rapidly becoming a massive fan of this man's work and would urge you all to check him out. Very nice on the ear if you're into Dub or Reggae and it excels if you've smoked a few joints...

One of the supporting cast in this movie is a man called Colin Stewart. He's from Derry and an old pal of mine. I inadvertantly got him into acting back in 2000 via The Playhouse Theatre, David Gothard's creative writing masterclasses and Jim Lecky's Shakespeare company.

Colin has gone on to act in several big productions since. Back in 2000 I was the person who advised him to get into acting because if they ever made a movie about Michael Stipe of REM, he'd be a prime candidate for the role. They're the spitting image of each other (or they were back then). I met him and his pal Jimmy Irwine at Café Java just down the road from the theatre on my lunchbreak. I was half-joking but it's paid off for Colin and although he had no formal training*, He's doing very well for himself these days. Some guys have all the luck eh? Who knows? I might get back into acting at some point if they ever need a fat Irish actor who looks like a retired IRA volunteer...

Nah, in all fairness to Colin, he deserves the breaks and I'm much more interested in campaigning, community arts activism, new media arts production and writing these days...

Johnny Was 2006: Director: Mark Hammond. Writer: Brendan Foley. Political Action, Thriller. Crime. Starring: Vinnie Jones, Samantha Mumba, Roger Daltrey, Lennox Lewis, Colin Stewart. Music by Adrian Sherwood.

* Colin Stewart is now a seasoned and professional actor and Sensitize © / http://www.upstaterenegadeproductions.com wish him every continued success :mrgreen: ...

CHILDREN OF MEN (UK 2006)

Postby Louis P. Burns aka Lugh » Sun Jan 14, 2007 2:36 pm

Children Of Men (UK 2006)...

You all have to see this one people. My recommendations for it go off even my scale. Powerful story set 20 years from now in England, where humanity has become infertile and the youngest person on the planet gets assassinated. This film is an adaptation of a book by P.D. James and sports a cast including Julianne Moore, Clive Owen, Danny Huston and the lovely Michael Caine as an Activist & Stoner who grows his own hybrid weed called; Strawberry Cough - more later *...

This film tackles what the world will be like in 2027, where immigrants are herded up into buses or shot in the street. Where marshal law rules supreme and the activists have guns and differing motives for fighting back. Into it all comes a woman called Kee (could be a play on the words 'chi' or 'ki' which both mean 'life') played by; Claire-Hope Ashitey who carries the potential for humanity's salvation...

This is a moving piece of cinema (out on DVD - Monday 15th January, 2007) with an exceptional soundtrack, superb camerawork and enough pyrotechnics to make Hollywood blush...

I wrote this little Haiku-style poem yesterday inspired by my first viewing of Children Of Men:-

'strawberry cough' .
By Louis P. Burns aka Lugh © 2007. All Rights Reserved.
    watch children of men
    see that the world is like this
    smoke 'strawberry cough'...
One final note and it's particularly for Psi but I suppose we all think the same. The closing song is performed by Jarvis Cocker and is called; Running The World. The chorus goes:-

"Cunts are still running the world.
Cunts are still running the world."


Watch the video for this song on YouTube here:- Jarvis Cocker - (Cunts Are Still) Running The World. That should give you all a suss on where this film is at politically :wink: and I don't wanna sound smug or as if I know it all, but that song is on a par with Working Class Hero by John Lennon in my opinion...

Peace, Love & Resistance...

Good News; Cliq, Delph & Psi :D ...

Postby Louis P. Burns aka Lugh » Thu Mar 01, 2007 4:29 am

Good News; Cliq, Delph & Psi :D ...
    Right. I'll do my usual, long-winded intro with this next post and piss you all off just by meandering, using words and phrases that get you all mildly interested at first, but by the time you're halfway through this post you'll be screaming things like;

    'Lugh!!!'

    Or;

    'You Bastard!!! Hurry Up!!!'

    I'll even toss words like 'movie' and 'adapted to screenplay by' or "Monty! You terrible cunt!" in... Oh. Or how about this one; "I feel like a pig's shat in my head"?

    Some of you are fidgeting. Aren't you? You're squirming about in your seats thinking;

    'hello. Lugh's talking about; Withnail and I. That damn fine UK film starring; Richard E. Grant, Paul McGann, Richard Griffiths, Michael Elphick and Ralph Brown that is intensely beautiful and positively hilarious.'

    You'd be right of course. I am, but only slightly. It's actually the writer of Withnail and I - Bruce Robinson that I'm referring to. He has bought the rights to adapt 'The Rum Diary' by Hunter S. Thompson and it's scheduled for release some time in 2008.

    I know Cliqtech and Delph are big fans of Hunter S. Thompson and that Psi, like me, is absolutely insane for the wonderful Withnail and I. So, there ya'z go folks. Something good to look forward to.

    I can't wait for this one people :D ...

    Read the IMDB blurb on this movie adaptation of The Rum Diary here...
