A Year (And A Bit) Of I’m Talkin’ Here


A little over a year ago, March 2014 to be exact, I kicked off I’m Talkin’ Here in earnest. I had reserved the WordPress space for a few years on account of my contributions to the now defunct Irish News Review. I had no idea what blogging really was and, stick with me here, I still don’t. Part of my reason for conjuring up this post is to try put some context on what the hell I’m Talkin’ Here actually is and what it is I aim to achieve with it. Basically, I love the sound of my own voice. Let me try make that seem a little less arrogant; I’m an opinionated little s**t. I got out of college in 2011 with a degree in English & Philosophy and not much of a clue what to do with it. Still don’t. Pretty quickly though I found myself contributing pieces to the aforementioned Irish News Review and maybe had sights set on the world of online journalism. This in turn drew me to WordPress and – having nearly blacked out my old Geocities and ProBoards days – I was suddenly back in the online content creation world.

Flicks On ‘Flix – Open Range


And we’re back! Flicks On ‘Flix has returned and I’m kickstarting this new “season” with a film I cannot believe I haven’t covered yet – Open Range. Directed by and starring Kevin Costner, accompanied by Robert Duvall, Michael Gambon and Annette Benning; this is the film for this of you like me who grew up in an age where Kevin Costner was box office gold, where The Postman was one of the biggest WTF moments of your young life and you wondered would he ever regain his status. Oh yes, he did.

Damn, You’re Annoying


I always have one problem when watching The Inbetweeners. That problem is that under no circumstances would I ever tolerate Jay. When I was growing up – when I was indeed an Inbetweener – I had mates like that. I’m still friends with one of them (he knows well who he is and he’s fine with it) but looking back now there were so many opportunities when I would have been completely justified in telling him to sling his hook.

Welcome To I’m Talkin’ Here

Welcome to I’m Talkin’ Here. After many failed attempts at maintaining a consistent level of blogging, I’ve decided the best approach is to break out of niches and genres. Come to this site to read about anything. I’ll be talkin about movies, music, gripes, bug bares, rugby, Ireland, whatever. If I think it’s interesting, it’ll be here and hopefully you will to.

Discretion advised, this is my personal blog. I write for other publications and this blog is by no means affiliated with any of them.

Phew, now that’s out of the way, let’s get Talkin.
