    How are you feeling about the Brexit vote?

    Worried as hell, My partner is in the Tourism industry which relies so much on the UK tourists, it's absolutely dreadful.
    Also a lot of people in the US seem to mistake Ireland for a part of the United Kingdom, I guess we have been independent for less than 100 years from them, but still it's just such a worrying position for us right now.
    I mean there is potentially good things to come from it, could end up seeing a unified Ireland considering that Northern Ireland vote had been to remain but it's going to take a lot of change, work and reform before any of that becomes a reality. Also my mother in law is a UK citizen living here... so potentially she could get sent home, Silver lining on every cloud!

    lol @ mother-in-law

    A unified Ireland sounds amazing, man.

    I hope you and your partner weather the storm!

    Oh man, that airlock comment. I'm cracking up. You've been killing it lately :)

    lol, I think I just don't have the energy now to filter my posts a bit more than I normally would, I got about 3 hours sleep last night, need to wait another 1 hour and 8 mins to see what Sony have planned... I would sleep but man last years FF7:R reveal, seeing that Live was just amazing, hope it will be worth it again this year.

    But yeah I love the heck outta Trek (Wife and Me went out last Halloween dressed as Riker and Kirk), watched every single series and movie of it (except the animated show) but just JJ's world is so... dull in ways.

    The 09 reboot was somewhere between good and very good, never really great imo, but that absolute disaster that mocked the memories of The Wrath of Khan, not only did it feed from far better films, but also it reused a lot of the plot from the ending of Star Trek:Enterprise Complete with Robocop as the villain (Hail Peter Weller!) As much as I never watch trailers normally.. I had to after hearing the bad PR the new films trailer got... wasn't shocked, just sad.

    New TV series next year though! Could be saved again, sorry btw if you have no interest in Trek and just like a good gag about me dying with a daft smile happily watching Chris Pine wriggling about silently screaming at me before his head pops with a spray of blood and Lens flare... hmmm nice images to dream about after the Sony show...

    I love Trek! And, yeah, Abrams' interpretation has rubbed me the wrong way. I wish he had just waited a little longer for Star Wars. That's more in his wheelhouse anyway.

    on 13 June 2016

    Star Wars : A new New Hope, easily the safest movie I've seen in years, pushed zero boundaries.

    Also for someone who lives about 30 miles from the Island where Luke was hiding at, that ending kinda ruined the illusion for me of it being long ago in a galaxy far far away... I mean it's literally down the road from here :D

    on 13 June 2016

    Did you see any filming?

    on 13 June 2016

    Oh, sorry missed this reply, no we didn't, the tour operators for the Island stopped taking travelers out to it in the month around the filming just in case anything would happen to the area they wanted to use.

    Weirdly the heritage board here didn't charge them anything to use the site and even had to make some repairs to it after they left (small things but still, respect an old heritage site imo)

    I think the aim is to get more tourists to come to South West of Ireland to stand where Luke was, it is a really awesome place but you can literally just stroll up off to boat and recreate his scene with ease, just have to remember his lines hah.

    on 17 June 2016

    it does look like it's from a Galaxy far far away though, the joys of Ireland :)

    I'm tempted to visit to do just that! I love Star Wars/Luke and I love Mark Hamill :) plus I've never been to Ireland.

    on 17 June 2016

    Ireland is a great place to come to visit, but... I'm not sure is it something you can really take in and enjoy in a matter of a couple of days or even a week or month.

    Most of what I love about the country comes from just living here, with very few exceptions people are happy to just mind their own business and not try to dictate how others must live, was easily one of the proudest moments for me last year when Ireland was the first country in the world to legalize gay marriage by popular vote, as in the Irish people as a whole wanted it, not just a law passed by some politicians in a room, but the whole nation, can't beat that feeling.

    I'd love to say everyone here is lovely though but of course there are exceptions, as evident by the other Irish users of this site mostly being moderated every other week and just seen one of them has fallen to a permaban lol, I guess there are still pockets of hate on every island!

    The one thing I will say though, is I think the old view of what to expect of the south west of Ireland has taken a hit recently, you'll see more Mc Donalds arches here than you'll see someone knitting a jumper right off a sheeps back and you're far more likely to see people drinking a costa coffee outside with their macbook than with a Guinness on the street.

    I should really visit. I have a soft spot in my heart for Ireland through cinema too. I love Jim Sheridan's work.

    on 17 June 2016

    That is a cool thing with Ireland in some ways.. it's small like you can travel from one end to the other (N/S) in about 5 hours or (W/E) can be done in about 3 hours, so if there is sites you wanted to visit in the 4 corners of the country you can see them all in a week, but like I said the true joys of Ireland is just going up one of the mountains or so here, and sitting back and relaxing watching the clouds go by... which is very hard to pack into a fast holiday.

    So I found someone else addicted to Peggle: my cat. I caught him following the ball with his eyes and had to rush over and stop him from jumping at the TV

    Yeah it's all fun and games with cats until they decide to "help" you out by attacking the TV, we got 2 cats here, one who ignores everything and the other who has to be battled off the TV if there is stuff buzzing around it.

Nope, it was a brand new unopened PS4 copy :-) Hmmmmmm New...
