Tyler, the Creator: he really, really, hates doing interviews. We ask the Odd Future leader some questions and wait for his replies.

10 to catch at Oxegen: Tony Clayton-Lea’s form guide to the runners and riders to check out next weekend at Punchestown Racecourse.

The Guard: just what brought Oscar nominee and blockbuster regular Don Cheadle to Connemara for a proudly politically incorrect Irish comedy?

Josie Long: inbetween running for her train and twisting her angle (you just know this is going to be feature in a future routine), Josie Long talks about starting her stand-up career at the tender age of 14.

Plus reviews of new albums (including SBTRKT, B-Movie Lightning, Wiley, Jill Scott, Sonance Hotel, Maskedman, The Breakers, Pat Methany and Francesco Turrisi), movies (The Conspirator, Larry Crowne, Transformers; The Dark of the Moon and A Separation), games (Dungeon Siege III) and apps (Battleships), listings, news and much, much more.

That’s your winning Ticket in The Irish Times today in print, online and the best of The Ticket on the app.

The OTR plugs service is now open for business. Please feel free to plug and recommend stuff away to your heart’s content, but remember some simple rules: (a) declare an interest where one should be declared, (b) plugs are accepted on the whim of OTR and may be edited for length/clarity/common sense and (c) plugs which mention a commercial sponsor are really ads and will probably not be published in this slot. They’ve sold how many tickets?
