"Hey Lenny, did you drop that? It f*cking hums" "Yep. Good to be back"
So, there was a little Rooster reunion (I would say re-incarnation but I'll come back to you on that one) of a kind on Thursday night when the tall guy invited me onto his new show to chat about movies. It was fantastic to get back in the seat and throw on the old ear cans, but I have to admit I was really nervous! It's very strange when you have been doing the same thing for a number of years and you enter the comfort zone that nothing can seem to throw you, unless f course it's me moaning to KC about why the f*ck there isn't a working clock in the RedFM studio etc. (Christ, we had to rely on the computer clock for about a year and that kept jumping forward and back. Hot Tub Time Machine? just try Red Studio Time Machine..sure why would you want a clock in a radio studio :-S) Although, talking at night is a hell of a lot easier than falling out of bed after reluctantly removing yourself by caesarian section and holding onto the bed sheet like an umbilical chord. I hope you were able to check out Thursday night and we are hoping to make it a regular slot on the show and we'll go from there :-)
Jah Bless me brethren and here's to the future and tings!
If you have a chance please check out my latest Aranman.

Apart from the fact that I'm hawking for hits ;-) There's a reason why I picked Lady Airbags above for my Aranman pic. She is a high class hooker involved in a scandal with a number of top French football players, who didn't realise she wasn't her real age...WHOOPS!!!!!
Also, I was chatting on TodayFM with KC about a brand new movie starring David Duchovny and Demi Moore called The Joneses. It's a really smart, funny piece of satire that's not too taxing and worth checking out. I did a piece about it on Bigscreen and talked about the amazing lengths companies will go to sell us their wares. Unbelievably, Pixie Geldof is supposed to have been paid 10,000 Euro by a vitamin water company who wanted her to be seen strolling around Glastonbury clutching a bottle of their brand!

Did anyone see Jonathan Ross on Friday. One of the funniest interviews I've seen in a long time. Here's a wee clip of Louie Spence from Pineapple Dance Studio on Sky One. I highly recommend it for a Sunday night viewing. He is mental!

In a week that saw me reach the pinnacle of my life, I met Crystal Swing, saw Trevor Welsh appear on 30 Rock, witness Anthony Kiedis off the Red Hot Chili Peppers read the RTE news, and see how relations between Scotland and Iceland are worse than ever:
"That Linny has an awful smell off him"
Well, Jaysus that was the week that was and it wasn't that is and it isn't and sure twas only da t'internet sensation of the moment that I schtumbled into while I was paying a visit to me old partner in crime KC. Truth be told, I have been hanging around outside in the alleyway wheelie-bins, like Oscar the Grouch for the past three days and it wasn't until someone was making a delivery that I sneaked in and hid in KC's desk until he offered a tour of the station. Luckily, I scrubbed up and removed any banana skins from my shoulders and syringes from my knees. CRystal Swing had just appeared on the Ray D'Arcy show and were waiting in the lobby so myself and Keith slid over for a few pics. After seeing the young lad going ninety with his knees on the Late Larte and Ellen I swear he's on a level with Keano and will need replacements in about two years...from hucklebucked to hucklef*cked!
I also stumbled into Radio Roy himself, the very talented Gift Grub aka Mario Rosenstock:
"Now, there's a funny fecker. Oh, and yer man from Gift Grub!"
What a surprise to see TV3's very own Trevor Welsh appear on one of my favourite shows 30 Rock during the week.
As if Trevor wasn't enough of a shock, the lead singer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers turned up to do the late night news on RTE2! Christ on a bike, I half expected Ann Doyle to leap out with straddling a drum kit with Brian Dobson launches himself naked across the studio holding a bass aloft like a Montrose Flea.
The Latest Aranman: This week, it's more about the Island Feshtival, Rage Against the Machine, Crystal Swing, Giant Lego Man, Hucklebucking, and the Simian Gareth Bale.

Saw this in a bookshop in London. Greatest book title ever:
I wonder if George Lucas has tried to sue the Euro shop for copyright:
And Tiger may be out of the Woods and can cement his comeback with a stunning win.Unfortunately Tiger, you are still in our thoughts, and especially for those in the sex toy industry:
MY HERO OF THE WEEK...
"Check oot dis reet maad bastad who is gunna like puut on as many pants as he canna like" (sorry that's just my pathetic attempt at a Geordie accent) Introducing Geordie Pantsman who made a new Guinness World Record for wearing the most pants------- 211! I hope he didn't intend on pulling after the record...them's a lot of pants to pull off :-S
Speaking of Geordies...
Did anyone check out The Pacific last Monday? Cost over $200 million bucks and if your a fan of Band of Brothers then yoiu will definitely dig it. Wrote a bit on it during the week for Entertainment.ie. Just click on the pic:
Also went to see a screening of new JRM and Julianne Moore flick Shelter, and jaysus it was not what I was expecting...the Corkman definitely has a career in comedy ahead of him. He is completely miscast and still retains that stupid walk :-S
Did a bit on it for bigscreen.ie. Just Click on the Pic:

SOME FUNNY QUOTES THAT A MADE ME SMILE THIS WEEK:
"Vienna Boys’ Choir caught up in sex abuse scandals…Special Report from Roger Boyes, Berlin Correspondent of The Times" - Headline from the Times newspaper with the most inapropriately titled Journalist chosen to cover the story.
"I was very shocked considering the Africa shooting. His fashion choice is tasteless. It's inappropriate for him to promote guns as 'cool'."- Emmanuel Adebayor, shows why he has a very short memory after attending a 50 Cent gig in Manchester sporting a dark grey shirt with a white pistol across its front. Only a few months after witnessing a machine gun attack on his team bus at African Nations Cup. D’oh.
"You get to the point where you think, 'Okay, I look like a transvestite now" - Robert “I’m a laydee” Pattinson, on his overplucked brows and sparkled face in Twilight. Just be sure to watch your back, David Walliams is sure to pounce.
And my favourite quote of the week:
"I can’t bear to tell the director. I’m a producer; I’ve got a thick skin but, well, she’s a creative. We must have broke a new record for grosses." - Jana Edelbaum, producer of movie Motherhood starring Uma Thurman, which broke box office records with the lowest opening weekend for any movie in the UK. It made £9 on it’s debut Sunday. Meaning ONE person bothered to see it! Next time Uma, stick a yellow jumpsuit on. Or better still - paint yourself blue.
