‘Dumbledore’s Theme’ – James Newton Howard – Track Of The Day

With the latest instalment of the multi-million dollar franchise Fantastic Beasts has just hit cinemas, so there is no better time to listen to some of the gorgeous tunes that gave the movie life. This song from the soundtrack is performed on Piano Solo and is an interesting embodiment of one of the key new features […]

‘Shallow’ – Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper – Track of the day

As an avid Gaga fan (yaaassss Queen) and movie lover, today’s track of the day is a no-brainer. While I considered something Doctor Who related after Jodie Whitaker‘s triumphant launch as the series lead, this song has been stuck in my head since I heard it in the cinema last week. Are Remakes Always Wise? […]

Bring Me To Life – Evanescence

People love to hate on the early to mid 00’s superhero movies, in particular Daredevil and Elektra. But one thing you can’t fault, though I’m no expert on metal of any sort, is that quintessential grungy-electro-metal soundtrack that accompanies films like these. In particular, the double-dose of Evanescence. The beautifully dark feel of the Netflix […]

Top 5 Pets We Wish We Had At Hogwarts

So September 1st came and went and again we didn’t go to Hogwarts. But this never stops Potterheads like myself from thinking about what types of things we would do and what cool stationary and supplies we would bring. A big question for all wizards when starting school is “owl, cat or toad?” and this […]

Harry Potter Quiz to help send Quidditch Ireland to World Cup

Muggle Quidditch Recap For the newbies who thought the idea of real life people running around with sticks between their legs was bizarre; it is a bit. For a person who has played this sport on and off for about 2 years, it still amazes me that we are doing this, and how passionate everyone […]

Pull List – May 2018

This month brought another mix of different stuff, but this time comics do indeed feature. ‘Almost Love’ by Louise O’Neill For once, the brand new books everyone are talking about in my Facebook bookclub came into my library account in the past month. I was particularly interested to see how, if at all, Louise O’Neill‘s style […]

The Beginning – RuPaul – Track of the Day

I’m super late to the game on the extravaganza of RuPaul’s Drag Race, but I am OBSESSED. The fishiness, the tea, the shade and of course the lip sync for your life, is life. This, even for me, is an incredibly binge tempting show, but with the news of Netflix removing Season 1 through 7, […]

Geek Goodies – Avengers Funkos & Pikachu

With the new Avengers movie just around the corner, the geek goodie market is flooded with stuff. Thankfully so of it is pretty awesome, and there’s some other cool Marvel stuff to boot.   Avengers Stuff Groot t-shirts are a dime a dozen these days, but it doesn’t mean I don’t want ALL OF THEM. […]

Pull List March 2018

As a librarian, a pull list is a somewhat different thing; a list of items in the library other people have requested. But the key concept is the same: the books etc that are next to be read. My own pull list is generally quite large (staff privilege) but I am currently reading only books […]

‘Piece Of Me’ – Britney Spears – Track Of The Day

I’m not sure everyone reading this will be quite as happy about the news that Britney Spears is returning to Dublin in August. It’s been 7 years since she’s done a concert and nearly 10 since I myself saw her in the Circus Tour in 2009. But I have been a Britney fan since that […]
