And finally EXCLUSIVE to Lennyslogbook....He warned us all along and finally did it!:

TODDLER GETS THE CROWD WARMED UP!!!
"YOU COULD CALL IT THE ART OF FIGHTING, WITHOUT FIGHTING...HHHHHHHHHHIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIYYYYYYYYYY
AND INTRODUCING...THE JINGLE CATS
Monday, November 24, 2008
Niall Breslin or "Bres" as he is known now that we are bessie mates and his fantastic band The Blizzards are confirmed as the first of two headline acts to play at the inaugral Jingle-Bell Ball being held at The Pavillion on December 13th. Bres popped in to The Rooster today to play the Feely Guessy Band lead-singer game with Eimear. The object of the game was for Eimear (wearing blindfold) to guess who the lead singer of our band was through only touch alone. At about 6'5" tall and just a few inches short of being a giant she had plenty to grab on to...(oh er missus). Tickets are free but we are asking all winners to make a generous donation on the night to the Breast Cancer Research Charity in Cork to guarantee entry. In the coming weeks we will be releasing more tickets so make sure you are listening across the day!!!
Another major act to be added to the bill very soon!
I really should get a little portable box for these things...
In other news:
"Hi, my name is Pat also affectionately known as 'The Plank'. It's time to get wood and welcome to the Late Late Show...The Satanic Sluts"
"Sure you would see more in a Marks and Spencer's lingerie ad". If you are unfamiliar with the work of Satanic Sluts. One of the dancers is a certain Georgina Bailie, who gained notoriety after being the Grand-daughter of Andrew Sachs a.k.a. Manuel from Fawlty Towers and the lady who Johnathan Ross blurted out that had "f*cked" Russell Brand. That wasn't the only controversy of the night...Pat, who probably maintains that stiff hair in the height of passion during sessions with his wife while watching re-runs of Kenny Live (apologies to all for conjuring up an image of Kenny Live....uugghhhhh Jesus) managed to lose it when a contestant over the phone said she wasn't "particularly interested" in winning tickets to The Toy Show...

Mickey Mouse first appeared on cinema screens in Steamboat Willie, released in 1928, and to celebrate his 80th Birthday this week I have found this EXCLUSIVE and RARELY SEEN video about the FAMOUS DISNEY VAULT. It's the place where all the Disney movies we never saw have been kept a hidden secret...Until now that is...
We also had Boxing hero Kenny Egan on the show today alongside TV LEGENDS ZIG & ZAG!!!!!!
Here's a little reminder of what made those Zagamuffin alien tricksters so famous (cue dream FX music):
P.S. - Jaysus Ray D'Arcy has hair!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This man is down the COMEDY CLUB this Saturday. His name is Omid Djalili and he is one of the Kings of Comedy in the UK. Here's a clip from his own Sketch Show:
You've heard of Speed Dating...what about Speed relationships!!!

This is his story:
This is what Adam says his dream girl looks like...looks like a photofit drawn by a four year old...kind of a cross between Ugly Betty and Mr Incredible but he is determined.
He's even taken to the streets of London with 12,000 FLYERS to find her!!
Well Adam it looks like the search is over!!!! Wahey!!!!
Thanks to Ruari Twomey who sent this pic into the Rooster...
Also don't miss these lads. They're called PRENUP and they are playing Cypress Ave on Saturday. If you're a fan of the Hothouse Flowers/The Pogues you need to be there:

"Calm down calm down i was only away for one day!!!"
Spent the weekend in the Pool but am now convinced that every weekend i go away the head takes a further two days to reconfigure back to normality and getting up at the devil's hourv in the morning!! As you can imagine i've had to crowbar myself out of the scratcher since i got back into the swing of things on Tuesday. I lived in the Pool for a few years after attending College there so it has a plaxce in my hear (and my pocket)...I think i spent the annual Gross National Product of a mini African country in my time living there...mainly playing pool in cosey corners of bars!! *ahhh the memories* Well a lot has changed and for the better. When i was there some of the places we lived actually resembled the set of a War movie after the blitz or the centre of Beirut. Thankfully, because of the Capital of Culture 2008 status, the regeneration of the City is well underway and it is fantastic. Spent Sunday checking out a new shopping mall called Liverpool 1, it's one of the biggest in Europe and is fantastic...you could find yourself conducting some serious open wallet surgery...without anaesthetic...oooohhhhhhhh.
*celebrity spot* Well i didn't see her but i was there when the text was received! We were sitting in my mate's new house in the Pool cooing over his new kids ...he's had twins...and there's us thinking he had no bullets in the barrell!! The phone goes and my mate's girlfriend got a text telling her that AMY WINEHOUSE IS SITTING OUTSIDE THE BEEHIVE BAR IN TOWN. Yes...THE BEEHIVE...i'm not shitting you!! The pub is a real old man's haunt where bicycle clips, nose hairs and a musty smell will guaranteee entry, hence Amy's arrival.
Crazy trip eh!? Not really, but i like to chill back these days with my pipe and slippers ...and it was a brilliant craic.

Imagine this guy conducting Mass in the local Church! "Listen up Youghal (and all surrounding parishes) this is the Real Reverend busting ye bible...WORD"
It's Father Stan Fortuna and he is the original Priest Diddy, Ecclesiastical Eminem dropping Psalms like bombs on yo ass...He looks like Des Bishop with a beard (geddit...ho hum) and sounds like he's straight out of a Martin Scorcese mobster movie (his Parish is The Bronx!). Check out his latest video - Everybody Got 2 Suffer...Recognize:
If that's not enough then check out his BEATBOXING FREESTYLE!!! Heaven's above is there anything this saviour of the streets cannot do:

Okay, so I sense a bit of a theme emerging here...
Paul O'Grady's face os priceless...pause at moment of impact for full effect:
This model could have earned so much kudos if she didn't storm off like a toddler!
And where would we be without some footballers falling foul...scroll to about 1:41 in to see why referees are referees:

Is this the future of news reporting? During the American election CNN Reporter Jessica Yellin was in Chigago was recorded as a hologram and beamed into the studio in New York -
Even Will.I.Am is getting into it...you can see his humps ...his humps...his holographic humps:
Ummmm... reminds me of something -

Also in the news...In the words of that other S Club song BRING IT ALL BLACK!!!!!!!!!!
BARACK OBAMA IS THE FIRST BLACK PRESIDENT OF AMERICA
Never thought i would be writing that to be honest....45 years after Martin Luther King gave his "I have a dream speech" it seems that the sentiments of his original hopes have been fulfilled. It's amazing to think that less than fifty years ago Blacks and minorities weren't even allowed to enter college, sit where they wanted on a bus, drink from the same water cooler, swim in the same beach or even walk down the same street. I am usually the cynical type, but this Election win sends out a message that a stand-up comedian from Texas with a cabbage for a brain brought that country to it's knees and it wants to be respected not laughed at. People who would never have voted took to the streets in huge numbers and probably feel as thought they might finally have a voice. Well this is just the start. Wow, it's almost as exciting as the Irish Presidential election...I think ours should at least involve an obstacle course and a go-kart race or even a Father Ted style lovely girls competition instead of a simple hand shake test..."Yes, I can confirm Mary MacAleese has the best handshake amongst all the candidates and is the next President of Ireland".
Ill leave you with this quote from Martin Luther King from Letter from a Birmingham Jail one of the most perceptive and brilliant things i've read :
"We know through painful experience that freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed. For years now I have heard the word "Wait!" It rings in the ear of every Negro with piercing familiarity. This "Wait" has almost always meant 'Never'. We must come to see, with one of our distinguished jurists, that "justice too long delayed is justice denied.Let us all hope that the dark clouds of racial prejudice will soon pass away and the deep fog of misunderstanding will be lifted from our fear-drenched communities, and in some not too distant tomorrow the radiant stars of love and brotherhood will shine over our great nation with all their scintillating beauty. "

And finally the truth about Obama's roots are revealed:

On Friday we broadcast from Blackpool Shopping Centre for a very special Halloween themed show. Here was the set-up on the bridge looking across the centre:
...i think we must have been on a toilet break here...although the show continued without us...ooooohhhhhh SPOOKY!!!
...i know it looks like the fair City cast in rehearsals but it is infact the Wolfe School of Dance who performed a brilliant and scary (i'm still wearing my adult nappy) rendition of 'Thriller' by Michael Jackson. Well done girls it was class!!
And a Shaggy Dog Story!!!
Here's something i found in the archives. It's me and my dog equivalent at the Irish Guide Dogs for the Blind open day a few months back!
Here's the latest installation from self styled Urban Artist BANKSY...He's the guy who's little graffitti rats, cops and various characters have been unleashed on London for the last ten years. He is now moving into animatronics and has set up this so-called "Pet Shop" in the middle of New York. I think it's brilliant. See for yourself.
