    Even if he wasn't so cute, this would still be affecting

    Pity about the emotionally manipulative music they've put over it at the end. It cheapens it. That doesn't need music to tell you how to feel about it.

    Bridge notes

    Well, 'viaduct notes' to be exact. A section of the viaduct at Malahide which carries the Dublin/Belfast line collapsed yesterday. I've been over that bridge many times, and it's one of the most beautiful parts of the trip. Really feels like the train is ploughing through the water. The collapse happened just moments after a Balbriggan train had passed over it. They were lucky.

    The estuary is tidal of course, and sometimes when passing over it and the tide is going out, you can really see the power of the water as it rushes out through the narrow gaps beneath the train. However according to the radio this morning, the viaduct passed a safety inspection only four weeks ago.

    ... and I'm just popping out to buy some more sellotape.

    "It's the sleeve what does it"

    Fun report from the 1930's in which designers imagine what we'd be wearing in 2000. And they're not too far off. I have some of those looks! Or wish I did.

    Pizza Girls

    As Pantibar customers will know, all our pizzas are called after great Irish women, like….

    Maureen O’Hara

    She was born Maureen FitzSimons in 1920 in Ranelagh, to the rather significantly named Charles Stuart Parnell FitzSimons and his wife Marguerita. Her father was a businessman and part owner of Shamrock Rovers football club, which suddenly makes Shamrock Rovers a lot more glamorous in my trannie book! According to my gay Buzz, who’s obsessed with Rovers, she used to sell programmes at the games in Milltown.

    She trained at the Abbey theatre, and landed her first big movie when she was 19 - Hitchcock’s Jamaica Inn. It was her performance in that movie that persuaded Charles Laughton to cast her as Esmerelda opposite him in The Hunchback Of Notre Dame. The movie was to be filmed in Hollywood, and only hours before she was to set sail for the US, she ran off and married a young fella from the studio. When her mother and Laughton found out they freaked out and grabbed her before the newlyweds had a chance to consummate the marriage (Boo!) and bundled her back onto the ship. The marriage was annulled two years later at the insistence of her parents. (How very Britney Spears!)

    Of course Hunchback was a huge hit and Maureen never looked back. She is probably best remembered for the movies she did with director John Ford, and with her great friend, John Wayne. She often played fiery, head-strong red-heads, and is probably best loved – in this country anyway – for one such role” Mary Kate Danaher in The Quiet Man. That movie loomed large in my childhood because it was shot in Cong Co. Mayo, only three miles form my hometown of Ballinrobe. As kids we would watch it on the telly and wait for our big moment, when during the famous fight scene in the village, the policeman would pick up the phone, wind the handle, and shout “Get me the the Ballinrobe police!”. We thought we were famous!

    She starred in over fifty movies, including The Quiet Man, The Hunchback Of Notre Dame, Rio Grande, The Parent Trap (the original one!), Miracle on 34th Street (the original one. Sheesh! Do you kids know nothing?!), Buffalo Bill, and Lady Godiva Of Coventry, which I’ve never seen but must seek out after seeing this amazing picture…

    "I am not dumb now"

    Helen Keller and her teacher Anne Sullivan explain how Helen learnt to speak in this clip from 1930. I never knew she'd ever been filmed.

    (Make your own jokes!)

    When YouTube comes back to haunt you

    Aaarraaghhh!

    My gay Will just found this on YouTube. It's from a few years back when I did some stuff for a "gay night" on RTE. Why am I speaking like that? And did I not have a mirror? My hair, my lip-stick!
