Posted on

My favourite sarch engine term that led someone to the blog over the last few days….?

Someone Googled “berets for kids for sale in dublin 4” and ended up here… Weird Ted…

PS Weirdest thing of today so far (and the day is young m’dears…) was this:

About 4 weeks ago David O’D showed me the online video for Nizlopi’s JCB Song here in the Untitled office…

I mailed them and asked for a copy of the song…

I played it on the show and suggested it for the main 2FM daytime playlist…

Astonishingly it was put on (unlike most of my other crackpot ideas!)

Ruth played it, Nikki played it, Marty played it…

Other radio stations started playing it…

This morning they were live in studio on the breakfast show and it looks like they’re going to be releasing it in Ireland…

All because of one little moment… One of the reasons why I love being able to inflict music I like on total strangers 🙂

  1. Hey Rick,

    Great find! I heard it with Marty and Shane the other day when they played it for the first time, and really liked. Then I checked out their website, and the video, which really rock!

  2. Wonderful wonderful song. Had heard you mention it before and visited the site but somehow missed the link to the video and song. Wish I could reclaim those simple days with my dad. I love him to bits and I’ve never told him – I don’t know how to – he turns 65 in a few days and I’m afraid of the day I have to wake up when he’s not around. He’s of the generation that doesn’t express feelings but then again neither do I. I’ve never sat down with my dad and just talked. I know him as my father, but I don’t know him as a man. How sad is that. Have to go, eyes stinging from tears writing this.

  3. The SS Richard Montgomery is a time-bomb waiting for a terrorist to give Britain its first real tsunami and, maybe, worse. This film shows what can happen when a government conceals something very dangerous from its own people.

    Fact: The US explosives carrier Richard Montgomery sank in the Thames Estuary in August 1944. It was loaded with 15000 tons of explosive munitions. The Admiralty decided to leave the wreck and its dangerous cargo undisturbed. The wreck lies just a few hundred yards offshore between an oil refinery and the several towns. Southend on Sea is just a couple of miles away on the other side of the Thames estuary. Rumours about the ship and its cargo have circulated in these towns ever since. Denials have been issued by ministers in the House of Commons in response to MPs questions about the presence on board of biological, chemical and gas warheads. Nevertheless, rumours persist that the real reason the wreck was not made safe was because of the existence of ‘dirty weapons’ on board.
