Flight of the Conchords - "Beautiful Girl"
The Vienna Vegetable Orchestra performs music solely on instruments made of vegetables. They use carrot flutes, carrot recorders, pepper trumpets, pumpkin basses, leek violins, leek-zucchini-vibrators, leek violin, cucumber-ophones and celery bongos.
This is what they say on their website: "The ensemble overcomes preserved and marinated sound conceptions or tirelessly re-stewed listening habits, putting its focus on expanding the variety of vegetable instruments, developing novel musical ideas and exploring fresh vegetable sound gardens." You can check them out at www.vegetableorchestra.org There are 11 musicians in the Orchestra. They play everything from House, Jazz to Classical. They perform between 20 and 30 performances per year. Nicklaus Gansterer, co-founder of the orchestra, explained how it all began: "We got the idea one day while we were cooking and chopping tomatoes.
Some of the instruments look like something a lady might purchase from a specialist catalogue.
"We got fascinated with the sound the chopping made, and from that moment we have started to hear music in a new way."
And if you’re wondering about what happens to all the Vegetables…At the end of the concert they make soup and distribute to the crowd.

Irish actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers, star of the Henry VIII soap opera "The Tudors," has been charged with public drunkenness and breach of the peace at Dublin Airport, police said Monday.
Rhys Meyers, 30, was arrested Sunday after police twice confronted him over his erratic, abusive behavior at an airport gate and at a desk of the British airline BMI, on which he was planning to fly to London.
Dublin Airport Police said they called Ireland's national police force, the Garda Siochana, after Rhys Meyers refused repeated requests to calm down.
Police charged him with two counts of violating the Public Order Act, then permitted him to pay an undisclosed cash bail on condition he return to Dublin District Court on Dec. 5 for his arraignment.
Rhys Meyers — who was admitted to a California alcoholism-treatment clinic in April and checked out the following month — was in Dublin to appear on "Tubridy Tonight," a Saturday night national talk show to promote his new film, "August Rush," costarring Robin Williams.In an interview last year on the set of "The Tudors," Rhys Meyers said he felt restricted socializing in Ireland because of its hard-drinking pub culture.
"I gave up drinking a few years ago, and this is the first time I've spent time in my country trying not to drink," he told The Associated Press in October 2006.
"I would never drink again. It is hard to avoid. But listen, you do what you want to do. I don't want to do that," he said. "I want my career, and you can't really do that and be successful on the screen.
"I'm young. If I grow older, which I hope I do, there's going to be an awful lot of time to sit in your 60s and 70s and 80s, lots of time for Southern Comfort and ice then," he said. "Now? I've got business to take care of."

Here's some funny stuff to take ye into the weekend...have a brill one!!!!!
READ THE STORY FIRST, THEN LOOK AT THE PIC OF THE CAKE...
Keep in mind that this actually happened!!!! This is someone who was moving from a claims office. Okay so this is how I imagine this conversation went:
Superquinn Employee: 'Hello 'dis Superquinn, how can I help you?'
Customer: ' I would like to order a cake for a going away party this week.'
Superquinn Employee: 'What you want on the cake?'
Customer: 'Best Wishes Suzanne' and underneath that 'We will miss you'.
Superquinn Employee: 'Dat all? Okay, Bye.'
And you can't get funnier than this it's Peter Andre and his song "FLAVA"
Check out the guy in the blue shellsuit looking up his own arse...

Check out this guy - His name is Aries Spears, a comedian from Chicago who's been doing the DefJam circuit for years and appears on US Comedy MADtv (well worth checking out especially for their Steven Seagal and Kenny Rogers sketches). This is him appearing on a radio show and performing his party piece, incredible impressions of HipHop stars, LL COOL J, DMX and a superb JAY-Z...If Jay ever gives up the rap game out of boredom he just has to pay this guy to go into the studio for him!!

...Some of ye said Sean Og, John Creedon, Cillian Murphy, Pana Man and even Joe Mac but the answer of course was Jonathan Rhys Meyers - The biy from Buttevent better known in these parts as "Johnny O Keeffe" had to learn to play the geetar and sing on his latest movie August Rush. Its actually not that bad and sounds like a cross between Glen Hansard and Damien fried Rice although it sounds like he recorded it cowering in a cold shower just after breaking up with his one true love...aaaawwwwww.
Here's a pic of JRM trying to do his impression of the magician Kenny Craig off Little Britain..."Look into my eyes, look into my eyes, the eyes, the eyes, not around the eyes, don't look around the eyes, look into my eyes ... ok, you're under"
DONT FORGET THE WORD IS BACK -
Here's your new sentence - "IF YOU’RE JUST JOINING US IT’S BEEN A BLANK BLANK".
Here's your moment of Zen - I'm a huge Bob Dylan fan and found this fantastic video of him and Allen Ginsberg at the grave of On The Road author Jack Kerouac...a brilliant read. The song playing is called "Not Dark Yet" from the album Time Out Of Mind

Here's my evaluation...being a child born of the late seventies and growing up in the decade of Knight Rider and shoulder pads it probably makes sense...
Your past life diagnosis:
The lesson that your last past life brought to your present incarnation:
Do you remember now? "Oh yeah its all coming back to me...Kilts, freezing cold days dancing in the mists of the Highlands trying to perform a card trick to a load of bored warriors...and then being chased and chopped in half after producing the wrong card" Lovely memories...GO NOW AND CHECK IT OUT!!!!!
