niallon – Tale As Old As Time

I feel like highlighting how long it has been since we uploaded is a little repetitive at this stage but, yeah, it’s been a while. The good news is that some backroom changes mean we should get far more consistent once more (basically, I’ve learned how to record myself) and we do have a very big project on the way soon that we’ve been working on for months now. But that is all down the road, right now we’ve got this.

I’m not gonna claim to be the world’s greatest Disney fan. I do like the majority of their output but I tend to be one and done, rarely re-watching their stuff. I do however regularly share the company of some Disney diehards and this particular tune seems to be one of the constants as far as favourites are concerned. We had been toying with covering a Disney track for a while and this one became a no-brainer (though there will likely be more Disney covers down the line). One final note I would like to add….this song is deceptively tricky! I won’t say exactly how long but suffice to say this vid is a long time in the making and I hope you’re pleased with the results, especially those aforementioned diehards, you know who you are! If you are, watch, like, share, subscribe!

 

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Review

GotG_Vol2_poster

Reviewing a Marvel film can be tough at the best of times. They’re blockbuster superhero flicks and any criticism aimed at their lack of substance or emotional depth etc can be seen as just taking them too seriously. This applies doubly to the Guardians Of The Galaxy series. The first film was touted as potentially being Marvel’s first legitimate flop, and instead went on to briefly hold the mantle of highest grossing release the studio had at that time. We’ve been here before though, in fact Marvel has been here several times; when the first film releases and becomes such a smash hit that the anticipation for the sequel reaches far beyond fever pitch, and preparation for disappointment sets in. So how does GOTG 2 fair in that arena?

James Blunt – The Afterlove Review

Yes, he’s back. And you probably hate him too much by now to be bothered. That’s OK, he knows it and with The Afterlove he’s here to talk about it. What Blunt has produced with his 5th album is a fusion of his more traditional style mopey ballads with some more modern 21st century pop sounds and for the most part it has been a resounding success.

Six Nations – Where Do We Go From Here?

I was a little negative last week, I accept that. I don’t think it was unjustified but I am certainly happy to be proven wrong. For the second time in 6 years Ireland have spoiled the English Grand Slam party and by doing so on Paddy’s weekend have left a certain sheen on their 2017 Six Nations campaign. A sheen can be dangerous though, and Ireland’s shortcomings this season cannot be forgotten.

Six Nations – That’s All She Wrote

I’ve deleted the first two drafts of this guys, bear with me. Last Friday’s loss in Cardiff was not only deeply upsetting in relation to Ireland’s title hopes – it was easily the most infuriating performance from the green army since Schmidt took charge of the team. Yes, I even include the Argentina loss in the World Cup and the 2013 loss to the All Blacks in there. This was awful.

Six Nations – Into The Dragon’s Den

No changes either side, roof closed, Cardiff on a Friday evening. We’ve been so fully focused on that final fixture that it has been easy to lose sight of this one. Whatever about how tough or not it may be for Ireland and those dreams of a third championship in 4 years, it’s gonna be a cracking game of rugby.

Six Nations – Ireland (And Scotland) Still In The Mix

Well, that was interesting. Whether it was Scotland showing all the highland resolve they could muster to oust the Welsh, Ireland commanding a win over the French amidst a somewhat imperfect performance or Italy frustrating the hell out of the English – this was certainly an entertaining and educational weekend of rugby. Ireland, and indeed Scotland, are now the only two teams in with a shout alongside the English with their unbeaten run continuing, and a truly fascinating two weeks of rugby lie ahead.
