Purple Floyd

Sorry about the pun, but I'm sure you'll forgive me when you hear this. David Gilmour performed at the Royal Albert Hall on Sunday, 24th April for Teenage Cancer Trust. This is an audience recording of him performing Comfortably Numb, with the inclusion of Purple Rain as a tribute to Prince. Nicely done Dave!

Iceland. Proven Here.

Perhaps like many people, I have a list of countries I would love to visit before I shuffle off and Iceland is definitely high up the list. In this stunning film we get to experience some of this magical land as some mountain bikers do their thing.

Cheap Trip

I have not tried this yet but it sounds like some fun if you've a little time to kill. Two guys set out to experience the 'Ganzfeld Effect' where their brains try to create patterns from blank space and white noise.

The small seaside town in Co Wicklow, Ireland where my wife is from and where many happy memories of mine are based. A nicely shot video a gorgeous song. See below the video for a full description by the creator.

This is Bray, vol. 1
To kick off the transfer of videos from Youtube to Facebook I'm going back (almost) to the start. This was the third video I posted and the second to feature a performance by local musician, Luke Maloney, recorded at the now defunct Homegrown Sessions at the Harbour Bar. I still think it made the perfect soundtrack.

It was around this time of year that I started filming for this clip, and If you ask me this is the best time of year to catch the sunrise in Bray. So, with the days growing longer, our perennial hopes of fair weather and thoughts of summer in mind, I think the time is right to repost this.

It can sometimes feel like we're under constantly reminder of reasons to be pessimistic these days, but that's a fallacy easily challenged. Simply by living on this sparsely populated island on the northern slopes of the Atlantic ocean and the western fringes of Europe, we are all, every single one of us, optimists! Go climb the Head, walk the prom or just find a comfy spot to sit and watch the world go by and you'll be doing your part to spread that good Karma we can all use a little more of.

I did actually make a start on volume 2 and I suppose I really should finish it, not least to make the title of this one a little less pretentious! Finally, It's hard to believe that two years later I still get the occasional message chastising me for including the shot in this clip of the two women wiping their trainers on the side of the path. For the record: they were wiping dust from the construction of new pathway on Main St. - not Rover's last meal.

The Old New World

Using archive photographs of 1930's New York, Vimeo user seccovan has produced a stunning animation of what it might be like to use a Steam-punk time machine to travel back and visit life in the area in 1931. Everything about this project shows exquisite attention to detail. I hope you enjoy it.

Heavy Metal?

Dan Spitz, who played lead guitar for the metal band Anthrax, left the group in the '90s to pursue an unexpected path: master watch-making. Now, he's one of the top watch-makers in the world, but can still shred a guitar like it's 1983.
