Geeks On Tour – Laughing In Limerick

I’m lucky enough to live and work in Limerick. I love it here. The people, the places – it’s a pretty fantastic place to build a life! Declan has already shared some of the amazing places worth visiting in this lovely city. But I’ve got even more to share with you. The Stormy Teacup This is […]

Geeky Goodies: Disney Edition

I love Disney. My family knows this. My friends know this. Any maintenance worker in my apartment knows this (even if they don’t know me.) Knowledge of Disney lyrics is a prerequisite for anybody who wants a lift in my car. (My sister once got the lyrics to Hakuna Matata wrong – we haven’t spoken […]

Whachu Doin’ This Week… Noel?

Well, I’m going to sleep. Eat. Drink. That kind of thing. Oh. Oh you meant the interesting stuff. The fun stuff. We can talk about that too…I guess. Well, packages arrived on my desk at work on Tuesday and Wednesday, considerably brightening my days. The first was Deus Ex: Mankind Divided on the PS4. Mostly due […]

James Gunn Reveals Early Concept Art Of GOTG’s Yondu

Guardians of the Galaxy director and all-round chill guy James Gunn took some time to reveal some early concept art of Yondu recently on his Instagram. Yondu, for those who may have forgotten, was Quill’s adoptive father. Michael Rooker played the role in the movie. While the finished design more than did the job, it’s clear […]

Pokémon Go Plus Is Almost Here

Pokémon Go took over the world in a few days. And also brought with it no small amount of unusual headlines. People storming Central Park for Vaporeon. Crashing into cops. The game drove people crazy in unusual ways.Though it does force people to walk around beautiful areas with eyes cast down. So Nintendo demonstrated it’s […]

The Magic Of Animation – Gallery

Animated shows and movies are growing more and more, and becoming a lot more diverse. They really have reached the point where there is something for everyone out there. I adore so many animated shows and movies. So much so that if I tried to write about them all, my writing fingers would wear off. […]

Noel’s Top 7 Animated Shows

Animated shows take so many forms. There’s something for everyone. This list includes the silly and the serious, the comic and the creepy. A small disclaimer though – I haven’t seen some of the newer series which have gathered a huge following like Adventure Time, Gravity Falls and Steven Universe. So deserving as they may […]

‘Life Is A Highway’ – Rascal Flatts – Track Of The Day

For today’s track of the day I wanted to pick something from an animated movie or show. But what one? There’s so many to choose from! My car’s glove compartment is full of Disney CDs. And then you’ve got epic soundtracks like the one in How To Train Your Dragon. Ultimately, I went with the […]

Boss Rush – David – The Last Of Us

As an audience, gamers demand more than they ever have before. We hold developers to a higher standard – and rightly so, when each game is sixty to seventy quid a pop on release day. So when Naughty Dog decided to do a zombie apocalypse game, I thought the decision was a little…odd. They don’t […]

Gotham Producer Sheds Light On Poison Ivy’s Season 3 Change

As the summer comes to an end, there is cynicism abound, mostly due to back to school blues and dreary weather setting in. But it’s also the time that many of our favourite shows return – including Gotham. Season 3 premieres on September 19, and with it a very different, older Poison Ivy. Executive producer John […]
