Good banter/Bad banter

Good banter.

When I was at the wedding on Saturday, late in the evening, I was getting a drink when I spied one of the people working behind the bar eating a packet of tayto. Quick as a flash I quipped "would they not give you your dinner?!!" he loved it replying "oh they would, but they'd make ya pay for it!!"


Bad banter.

I was in the shop to-day buying a 2 litre bottle of coke. I noticed the label said "part of a multi-pack not to be sold separately". Whilst purchasing, I quipped "you know this isn't meant to sold separately!!". My tone (I thought) implied that I acknowledged the fact that the shop may be being a little bit cheeky, selling multi-pack only items separately for an increased profit margin, but that I didn't care, I even encouraged such behaviour! This was not what the lady working in the shop picked up on and she sternly replied "I know" as if I was criticising the shop's business model.

I felt bad.

There is some truly shocking spelling in this weeks diary. I couldn't decide on the wrong spelling of a word. There is no consistency to my errors. I also took the week of school for some reason. I 100% guarantee I was faking it. And look out for the briefest mention of a legend at the end of Sundays entry.

Sweet Caroline

I'm only invited to things out of politeness. I think most people are. And most people don't want to go. But go out of politeness.

Pretty profound. I might write a song about it someday.

Beardclusion to my beardperiment (conclusion to my experiment)

Have to shave off my beard today as I am going to a wedding tomorrow. I would keep it, I enjoying looking like a diseased tramp, but my mother will cry if I don't shave it off and try to resemble something approaching "respectable"

I can safely say that the whole thing was an absolute disaster. Shaving regularly makes no difference whatsoever to subsequent beard growth.

I am 26 on Monday, can still not grow hair on my face yet it won't grow on my head either. This is not how it is meant to be. I should be at my hairiest.

Anyone who says going bald doesn't matter has not starting losing their hair in their early 20's.

I'm a failure

As I knew I was going to be near the shop today, I decided I was going to go into gamestop and buy The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. For those unfamiliar with the game, its a massive open world fantasy adventure game featuring globlins and glorcs and misty mountains and forbidden woods and ye olde pints of mead and all that sort of rubbish.

It's such a huge game that you can ignore the main storyline and just go on exciting quests, get married, take jobs, earn money, buy houses etc Basically all the things I can't do in real life. It was this fact I had decided to play on and apply my trademark witty banter with the shop assistant as I purchased the game.

I had planned to say "Huh, at least I might get a job in this (referring to the content of the game I was buying), I can't get one in real life!!!!!!!!(playing humorously, and with a hint of self deprecation, on the current economic climate and the effect it is having on the youth of today. There is also a whole other layer to this, the very fact I'm buying a video-game shows how I'm filling my time with pointless things as I slide gently into depression caused by a lack of reason and direction)"

Yeah, sure, it's nerdy and a bit clumsy, but my banter with the gamestop shop assistants is usually legendary.

Alas, today was not my finest hour. As I exchanged the game for my easily earned cash, I panicked and shouted "I MIGHT GET A JOB" The shop assistant politely said "that's good, enjoy the game" and I left.


It's a good game though.

Behind the Magic part 2. A TRIBUTE. Russia.

Wall of blog has had almost 4000 hits since its inception in early 2010. If I allowed advertising on this site I could have made almost 4 euro. Don't worry though, I will never allow advertising on wall of blog. I wouldn't sell out my principles just for a whole heap o'greenbacks.

(I would write a whole paragraph though, just to use the phrase "Whole heap o'greenbacks")

Just over half my hits come from Ireland, 25% from the UK/USA and the rest from a variety of non-English speaking countries (aside from New Zealand). By far the most popular from this group is Russia. I don't believe I'm particularly Russian centric on the blog, in fact, I've never even been to Russia! I did work with a Russian man once though, he gave me sweets. (This wasn't my job, taking sweets from a Russian man, it was on a production line in a furniture factory.)

Over the next while I will be paying tribute to all my foreign readers and the various countries they come from.

This is what I know about Russia.

Oh and if you find this vaguely racist, be aware I'm exposing your ignorance, not mine

If one has been watching t.v or listening to the radio or reading newspapers in Ireland since Saturday, you will note the huge coverage of the future president of China's visit to our island. It's massive, it's international news, the soon to be most powerful man in the world has chosen this little country to establish trade relationships with Europe and the west. EVERYONE IS TALKING ABOUT IT...... Except the real life, living in China, Chinese person I was talking to to-day. NO ONE IS TALKING ABOUT IT.

The sooner the Irish times people start reading this blog and get me on the staff, the better.

Although my end game with this blog is to write for the Sunday independent magazine. It thinks it's the sunday times magazine but it's not. It follows this simple formula.
Three main sections.

1. Take the piss out of an attractive Irish female. It might me an Irish model, t.v presenter, actress, anyone in the public eye really.

2. Take the Irish model they slagged off the previous week and do a photo shoot, usually in black and white, featuring that lady draped over some tables in a mansion in Kildare or something.

3. Witty look at the Irish middle class intertwined with some aspect of the recession.


I'd write for the Sunday world magazine either. It normally goes like this.


They are the only two I can do because they are the only papers we get on a Sunday. We get the sunday times sometimes but it makes my dad uncomfortable because, although it's an irish edition, it's an English paper. That's a bit rich coming from the man who bought the news of the world for 15 years though.

This post has too much of my opinion in it. I'm sorry. It's almost like something that would appear in the independent magazine. It's neo-post modern or something.

Try it yourself

I've had a few people ask me for the lyrics and chords to "Time after Time after Time" so they can play it themselves in their bedroom in between crying and wanking.

1st Verse

Am Em
Why have things changed so suddenly
This is not who I wanna be
And when I'm standing in the rain

Thinking of you
I could stand here forever
If you stood here too


Cos baby you don't realise it
But I fantasize it
I wish that you were mine

Time after time after time


A F#
Cos if you needed me
Half as much as I need you
My smile would be wider
Yours would be to
But I'm dying here of loneliness

A strange hollow emptiness

2nd Verse

Am Em
As I lay here in my room
Tormented by the demons
I picture my best friend and her smile
It gives me life, it gives me reasons

Same as above

Cos baby you dont realise it
But I fantsize it
I wish that you were mine
Time after time after time

Cos if you needed me
Half as much as I need you
My smile would be wider
Yours would be to
But Im dying here of loneliness
A strange hollow emptiness

Cos baby you dont realise it
But I fantasize it
I wish that you were mine
Time after time after time

The Basement Tapes

I decided that instead of just presenting the text of my teenage song,I would record it. The mix is a bit low so I recommend you use ear phones. Also keep in mind that I'm not a good singer, guitarist or have any creative ability whatsoever. The lyrics may have been written ten years ago but I doubt I would do any better if I tried now!

An mp3 of the song is available by request (free of charge)

It's over on the wallofblog soundcloud page, click on the title below.


"Ten years after writing them, the author found these lyrics from his teenage self in a box of old crap. He quickly composed some music to go with them and made this demo. I'm sure you'll agree that what he lacks in vocal ability and musicianship, he more than makes up for in the sheer raw pain and passion of the poetic lyrics"

Time after Time after Time

Back to the well

Regular visitors will know that in July 2010 I rocked the very foundation of the internet and my readers brains with my amazing teenage poetry.

It was long assumed that that well was dry and all the material from that time was in the public domain...well hold on to your hats readers, I've found another batch of stuff from the same period! The new stuff includes a poem, a song (laid out like an actual song, verse, bridge, chorus etc)and a long 6 page essay I wrote when I was 17 about the evil of alcohol in Irish society.

This essay is very embarrassing for me. Naturally I will post bits and pieces of it at some stage. I don't mind acknowledging how pathetic I am, with my poems and songs and diary, it's all good fun, but when you stumble across something that also shows you to be a prick, its a little more difficult. Anyway....

I'm going to publish the poem today, Its called "the Void"

The Void

The Void between us grows and grows
This is not the life I chose
I want you here, I want you near
'cos to me, you're very dear
Things have changed so suddenly
This is not who I want to be
I don't just want to be your "friend"
I want to be with you until the end

Not my finest work, but it did inspire the song I mentioned above.

Check back tomorrow for the song.
It's called time after time after time.

The Social Network

My search through the archives continues, although we wont be visiting our chubby little friend's (me) diary today ( Tomorrow though, I think, it is fast on its way to becoming the most successful post ever, with 54 views since Sunday, so I have to put more up soon)but at something a little different. Again we go back to 1999.

In my final two years of primary school, 1997 and 1998, our headmaster started to do foreign exchanges with schools in Europe. Our school would be twinned with another school and their teachers would visit us, as well as our teacher getting a free Holiday out there. The idea was to learn about each others culture and all that sort of stuff.

I don't remember much of it, we once did a project on the book Danny the Champion of the world (a book saying its OK to poach animals I think, I not sure why we presented this to some french people(also don't call Daniel Murphy, Danny the Champion of the world, he hates it)))some stuff about the famine (6,000,000 Killed I remember writing. I couldn't spell died. They weren't really killed were they?)We also wrote some things about Ireland for them. I wrote about Father Ted. I don't remember learning anything about Europe, only that the french ate bread with a knife and fork.

In sixth class, when some Italian teachers visited, we put on a concert for them, and, minutes before we were to take to the stage, our teacher asked myself and Francis "Not to sing this time" This time!!! It was THE time! The only time!

Anyway we were also told to write a letter to a person in the class and it would be handed out when our teacher visited them and this person would become our "pen pal"


Going through some shit today I found two letters from my Italian Pen Pal.

You may need to click and zoom to get a look at these

This is from a ten year old Italian girl. She plays the flute and loves school.

I wrote back to that one, and got this one during the summer

She wants to know why I never write and what I will be doing for new years eve (it's the tenth of June!) I imagine I just sent her lists of what I was eating and how much I played with myself.

She also included this art work.

Now, you're thinking, whats the point of all this? Well I'm thinking about writing back. Now. To-day. In 2012. Wouldn't that fuck with you head if you received a letter form a pen pal from 13 years ago. Imagine that happening to YOU now. It would be mental.

I checked the address on google maps, and it's a real place, it does exists. Although there is a good chance she isn't there anymore. People move on. People change. I mean in 1999 I had no job, no money, no girlfriend, lived with my parents, couldn't grow a beard, was overweight and my only friends were Carl and Francis. (hang on a minute!)
Fuck it, I'm doing it. This could be the start of some wacky dave gorman/danny wallce style hi-jinx or it might just end up at a dead letter office. I couldn't be arrested or anything could I? Should I do it? Or is it really weird?

Anyway its too late now, I sent it this morning!! TWIST!

Playing with myself.

New feature!

I only realised this morning that I have a document of my entire teenage life.

From May 1998 up until September 2005 I kept a fairly constent diary. It starts of as pretty much a list of what I did on an given day and as I get more into my teenage years, it gets less regular, but the woe is me factor gets upped considerably.

This shit is too good not to publish.

Every so often I'm going to pick a week and put it up here. Today we are going to go back to this day 1999.

(NOTE. When I say I'm in my room playing handball with myself its not some euphemism for pulling my plum, I am actually playing handball with myself, hitting the ball against the bedroom wall over and over again)

I've Passed!

I DID NOT go see the recent theatrical re-release of Star Wars Episode I the Phantom Menace. I could have, but I didn't.

I must surely be classed as a sensible grown up now, mustn't I?

Although that could be due to the fact that it is terrible shite and I couldn't sit through it again.

I would go see the rest of them though. Even Star Wars Episode II Attack of the Clones.

Boob Lolz

Saw boobs today. Real boobs.

Even though they were part of the human body exhibition and technically mummified and dead they were still boobs.

It counts. It does.

I ate so much chocolate yesterday I got sick. And not because I was full of real food beforehand, or I was just uncomfortably full and had to make myself sick, no, my stomach just couldn't handle the amount of chocolate I consumed. At around 21:00 I started to feel dizzy, stumbled to the bathroom and sprayed it up all over the place.

I figured that this couldn't be normal behaviour for a 25 year old, college educated man, so I did some tests online today to see what was wrong with me.

Yeah well that was obvious, I could have told you that.

Yes it's all starting to make sense now.

I got a few countdown results in.

I'm still the greatest.

One person sent me in an 18, I'm not sure why, its impressive sure, but it's still less than my 19.

I also got this list of impressive scores in. They are amazing BUT they are from a short game and, as such, not eligible.

A short game requires a quick burst of concentration, a long game is all about staying focused for a long period of time.

Let me put it this way, Usain Bolt can run 100 metres in 9.58 seconds but could he run a marathon in 9.58 seconds?

No. I doubt it.

**********LATE UPDATE**********
Just recieved this from the short game expert, They seem to have mastered the long game also. Check it out

The presence of Nick from the apprentice and a sexy intelligent women, coupled with me being unemployed, has awakened an interest in daytime student favourite brainy game show countdown. I didn't watch much countdown when I was a student, deal or no deal was just taking off, so we were big Edmonds fans. We used to take it in turns to go to a late accounting lecture on a Monday so one of us could hang back and report on the end of the game. I don't watch deal or no deal any more because Noel and the contestants are a bit weird.

Anyway I discovered countdown for iPad, and I'm really really really good at it. I just had a game and had to share it. The app lets you play two letter rounds, two number rounds and a conundrum.

Round 1


Round 2

I got very confused in the middle of this. I mixed up 100 with 10.

Round 3

Great? More like average.

Round 4

Impressive yes?

Round 5- Conundrum

Not a fucking clue

I don't even know what this word is.


Over to you. Download countdown for your i device. It's only 79 cent. Play a full game. Send a picture of your top score to 19 is the score to beat.

The bitch is dead

My neighbours dog got crossed by a car the other day. Thank fuck. I hated the cunt. Every single time I passed the house, either running or walking, he tried to bite me.

He got me a couple of times as well.


I miss him now though. I'm like Batman without the Joker. Or James Bond with out any of the various bad guys that featured in the movie series. I miss the cold war.

Welcome to the first part in a new feature here on wallofblog where I give you readers a peek behind the curtain at some of the internal workings at the site. It's like a dvd behind the scenes extra.

The second most popular search term that brings people to wall of blog is "Paedophile Glasses". Over 200 people have googled it since I wrote an amazing piece about different styles of frames back in 2010.

Who the fuck is googling "Paedophile Glasses" and why?

I spent way too long playing myself at chess today.

When I was younger and I was playing sport against myself, I would always take on the persona's of two established players in the field. So when I was playing tennis against the wall it was Sampras Vs Henman. When I was kicking football against the wall, it was Shearer taking shots againsts Seaman.

The only exception to this was when I was playing handball against the wall, it was always me vs someone better, fitter and more popular than me at school. (I would always win of course)

But who was going to play chess today? I think it pretty obvious it had to be Bobby Fischer vs Boris Spassky. The 72 world chess championship final of course, not the stupid 92 rematch. I quickly settled into the mindset of the two players and had an extraordinary time playing the sport of kings ( I don't think it is the sport of kings. That's horse racing isn't it?. Why is that the sport of kings?*)

Check it out

The players take their positions

The action kicksoff. This match was sponsered by Gillette Deodorant. The best a man can get

Now that's some classic chess

CHECKMATE! The white team take it! Spassky wins!!! What a turn up!!!

I took way more photos than this but I cant work out the order. I should have taken notes so I could have described the play by play. I'll know for the next match. First to 12.

Spassky 1 Fischer 0

*I just checked and it's actually POLO that's the sport of kings. It is a horse based sport. That's like a question that would be on Q.I, with horse racing being the answer that sets off the claxon. I'm not sure if claxon starts with a c or a k. The spell checker says K but my online dictionary says c.

"colon open parenthesis cats"

After the success and the implications of my lolcat on Tuesday, I've decided to create my own Internet meme. They are called ":( cats"

They're basically lolcatz that address series issues instead of pop culture fluff.

They are pretty powerful and may leave you emotionally fragile, so be careful.

Beard month.

As per the post on January 11th, it's officially beard month here on wall of blog.

The January daily shave and trim regime has been successful, and so the growth period begins.

I have a lot riding on this beard. At least when the hair on my head goes, it can be balanced with the facial hair. If I can't grow hair on my face, I'll look like a precog.

Thats the second minority report reference on this blog.

********INTERESTING FACT************

Minority report was the first ever DVD I bought, along with jaws and pulp fiction.
