Asking Questions Louis C.K. Doesn't Want To Answer.

I'm a big Louis CK fan. He has produced lots of high quality material both stand up, sit com and drama. This is a real interview addressing some of the rumours about him.

10 F*cking Awesome People I Only Know About Because Of The Joe Rogan Podcast

This is a great list, mine is into the hundreds having listened to every episode but these are a great start.

5) Gig of the week.

SBD presents "New Boots": Luna Rosa, Lois, Camping With Slough at Charles Bradlaugh, 18th November.

Speak to you Monday,



How to keep your life effing simple.


Friday 22nd April's top five is;

1) Video of the week;

Prince, Live 1982.

It's sad that Prince died, he had created so much good and potentially had a lot left in him. This video is nice and lo-fi, put it on and dance. WWPD (What Would Prince Do).

2) Gig of the week;

Lucky and Liam Dullaghan Saturday, 23rd April at The Playhouse on Claire Street.

This is shaping up to be a really good gig. Both acts are exceptional and the venue is also interesting, it's nice to be excited about gigs, we get complacent and take them for granted but it is a privilege to have shows like these on our doorstep.

3) Quote of the week;

“Come the f*ck in or f*ck the f*ck off.” - Malcolm Tucker, The Thick Of It.

It's just excellent swearing. Malcolm Tucker's ability to strip down what he wants to say to the fewest words possible (with a f*ck or two) is wonderful. Watch The Thick of It, In The Loop and Veep if you like great writing and acting.

4) Article of the week;

How to live without Irony - Christy Wampole

5) Thing of the week;

WTF Episode 700 Part 2 - Louis CK

I am a Louis CK fan, and his latest piece of work, Horace and Pete, is fantastic. He wrote it, starred in it, directed it, and paid for it. Regardless of how well it does, his rationale for doing it this way is very inspiring. Watch the series, then listen to this episode (as it has spoilers).


See you next week,

The Secret Gig

How to save time, health and artistry.

We've got some heavy hitters this week, it was tough to narrow each one down. Here we go...

1) Video of the week;

Lyrical School - Run and Run - Must be watched on your phone!

A previous podcast guest DJ OP1 showed me this. It's a mind bending video, as I said to him, it's like another fucking dimension. Must be watched on your phone to get the full experience.

2) Gig of the week;

It has to be Record Store Day at The Lamplighter. Spiral Archive record fair and music until the early hours. EVENT DETAILS HERE.

3) Quote of the week;

"Too blessed to be stressed." - Ben Hebert via Noah Kagan

I am not a religious person, I don't believe in any of the gods but I like the idea behind this one. I felt that simmering lava-like fury boiling up inside me when someone cut me up on the high street yesterday, and this popped into my head and sorted me right out. So, that means it's useful, help yourself to it.

4) Article of the week;

Want to help Louis CK out of debt? Four great reasons to watch Horace and Pete.

This TV series is groundbreaking and inspirational, both in it's creation and delivery. I'm genuinely surprised it's not a massive success, get involved and ensure this starts something big. You will enjoy it.

5) Thing of the week;

Preparing food in bulk at the beginning of the week is both simple and effective, two things I very much appreciate. It has both saved me time and prevented my usual quick trips to the shop to get a little something (usually chocolate or crisps). Good for time, good for health. Google it for billions of ideas & suggestions.

See you next week,
