    Hibernating bear

    Laurence Mackin

    This bear is heading off on holidays for two weeks which unfortunately means I’ll miss the end of the Dublin Theatre Festival (sob, sob) but does mean I’ll get to drink cocktails when I would usually be slaving over a hot keyboard (clink, clink). So comments on the various posts will be updated (Fantasy Band continues to cause ructions) but there will be no new posts from me for about 10 days.

    Keep an eye out tomorrow, though, when Darragh Downes will be swooping in with a guest post to coincide with The Ticket’s shiny new Album Club, which I managed to talk my way into before heading for sunnier climes.

    I’ll be leaving this comments thread open for your own discretion. Perhaps you could let me know how things work out at the end of the DTF. See you in a few weeks.

      I wonder if every ignorant idiot posting on here will also accept sharia law when it comes to a town near you!

      Laurence, don’t you think going to “sunnier climes” for les vacances is coming more and more to be seen as a bit of a late 20th Century folly – what with skin cancer scares, sea pollution and all that. Oh dear, sorry, hope you didn’t drop the sangria! But, in my opinion, the way to go for a 21st Century break could be…underground. Now, I’m only suggesting the following on account of the Chile miners being 100% rescued and safe and I’m not being facetious or irreverent at all in the slightest, so what about Chile and an underground experience? And now that we know the operation is safe, one could spend, say, seven to fourteen days underground – detox, lose weight, get priorities in perspective – in effect, experience rebirth; and then get winched up (10 minutes max), which in itself is a unique experience and the whole thing is all set up ready to go. Sounds much more beneficial/therapeutic to me than barbecuing oneself on a crowded beach……….ok, maybe just three days underground

      (Btw that was me @3 being as random as c/uggs @1 with a little fatwa(llet) allusion thrown into m’avatar seein’ ’n all as c/uggs was fundamentally alluding to our being Islamicised)
