"Pull of the Pint" Music Video

Just thought I'd post this video I made with The Boy in 2006. I'm going to post some small music drafts as well soon, maybe next week when I'm home.

We made the video in our old apartment with my then hamster "Lassie". The song is "Pull of the Pint" by Cork musician, Bill Coleman. The Boy was designing album artwork for him at the time.

Anyway, here it is..

Insignificant Passing Thoughts

Just a quick entry to say…

1. My dreams are getting more and more vivid and intense as my daily routine becomes more ritual and mind numbing. I dislike my routine and I miss sleep. Alas, I know that in order to travel soon and afford instruments and food, I need to earn money, and put fun things on the back finger. In my dream last night I was directing a film, and it played out before my eyes and I was composing music at the same time and was hearing it back. Just like a surround sound cinematic experience.

2. My plan for 2008 is to earn money, have a good time generally, be creative, and travel.

3. I don't understand why people enter the rat race. Is it really neccessary? Maybe sometimes I guess. Sometimes I just wish we were all hippies that live in a giant field. It’s really sad seeing all of the miserable commuters making their way to work in the morning (see figure 1.a below for cat equivalent).

Figure 1.a

4. My flatmate was sleeping on the couch this morning with the opening screen of dvd, “Death Proof” on in the background on the TV. I HAVE to find out what the song is playing over and over. It’s so fucking good.

5. I’m a bit depressed today but looking forward. “Lets push things forward”.

6. I have to listen to The Streets “Original Pirate Matieral” more often.

7. I have to get back to work now :-/

Instead of grabbing my duvet last night in bed, and forcing it over my head with my arm, I missed the duvet, but forced my arm up anyway.

This resulted in me wolloping my head.

I thought nothing of it at the time, but this morning I noticed a difference on my forehead...

Something strange happened to me today. As I was leaving the apartment block for work, a stranger said ..."hello"

...I’m not sure if it’s common for this to happen in a city…but it’s the first time it has happened to me while living in Dublin, and I’ve been living here since 2005.

Also, I have a small cold. I was blowing my nose in the bathroom at the office at break time, and at the exact same time, the church bells rang from accross the road. That resulted in me thinking (at least for a brief…2seconds) that my mucous sounds like Church Bells today for some crazy reason.

New Dog!!

I think I'm falling in love...

I was at my parents house today. We adopted a nice little dog - still nameless! I think he's a cross between a King Charles and a Kerry Blue. I took him for a walk in the forest beside my parents house, and brought the cam :-)
