RIP Troy Davis. What Ever Happened to Innocent Until Proven Guilty


So, today I woke up to the news that Death Row Convict Troy Davis had his appeal for a stay of execution denied and and at 11:08pm last night (4:08am GMT), he died from lethal injection.

Despite the fact that 7 of the 9 non police eyewitnesses changed their testimonies after the original trial, despite the fact that over half a million people had signed a petition for clemency including former US president Jimmy Carter, Archbishop Desmond Tutu and the motherfucking POPE, despite the fact that there was no clear evidence in the original trial to begin with except the word of a few eyewitnesses who admitted that they had been threatened by the cops to testify against Troy Davis, despite all these things and many more, The G’damn Supreme Court of Georgia has decided to ignore all these things and murder an innocent man for a crime which there isn’t a shred of evidence linking him to it.  Read the rest of this entry

Legit Excuse for Not Blogging This Time


Well that was a fun day yesterday. Woke up at 6 to a phone call informing me my girlfriends apartment block was on fire. And no, this is not an early April fools day joke, herself and her room mate are currently staying with friends for the next few weeks because the smoke damage to the hall outside their apartment is too dangerous to let them stay. If you don’t believe me read her story and the story in the national paper, the evening herald. So yeah, my day yesterday began far earlier than I had intended and took quite a turn for the worse when they were basically told to suck it and that they weren’t going to be given any alternate accommodation because it wasn’t their landlords responsibility. I, having earlier bought a bottle of fabreeze for them, felt a bit useless really. So the best thing I could think to do was just hang around, offer the use of my phone when they were out of credit, and provide any help that they needed. I honestly haven’t been this stressed out since the leaving cert and can’t even begin to imagine what it must have been like for them. So yeah, after many phone calls, texts, emails, talking with the gardai, talking with people in college, and a couple of drinks to try calm the nerves, they’ve thankfully sorted out some accommodation for the short term till the apartments are sorted out and after tomorrow, will hopefully be able to get back to some sort of normality.

So today I received a lovely little letter from dublin bus informing me that I had 5 days to pay a €50 fine for an unpaid ticket…. Hang on what? For starters my name is Eoin not Gerald. That’s my middle name. Secondly, you claim this is my second warning yet I’m struggling to remember hearing about having to pay a fine at all in the first place. All the ticket inspector told me was that I would have to present a valid student travel card in the Dublin Bus Hq if I wanted to see my card again. So instead I bought a new one. Why bother with the hassle of going there when I’ve much more important things to be doing.

Anyway I don’t want to get too much into that particular situation because I want to resolve it with as little hassle as possible. that won’t stop me from giving out about bus drivers though. Nope, this entire post is dedicated to the slandering of the bus drivers who have pissed me off in the past year as well as giving out a bit about 02. In fact,  I’ll cover O2 first just to get the thieving bastards out of the way. Read the rest of this entry

How I Became A Pyro (or, what not to do with a class full of 10 year olds)


What had started off as my little snippet for the 30 day song challenge day 7, became somewhat of a short story of it’s own so I thought I’d share it as a stand alone rather than take up a few hundred words in an already overflowing post.

So this is the story of how a young Eoin O’Sullivan became interested in the magical wonders of fire. I was about 10 or 11 years  old and was in my final days of primary school. We had been told that we were going to put on a graduation play, just like all the previous years had before us. Our play was that of prince cinders, a Spin on Cinderella that made the story cool and hip being all modern and what not. Oh and Cinderella was a dude instead of a chick so all the roles were reversed. Anyway, one of the songs required us all to have lighters. Don’t ask why, I honestly can’t remember why we needed lighters instead of something a bit safer like, oh i donno, torches or coloured bits of paper. But what ever the reason, we all had to have lighters for the play. thankfully the play went grand without anyone burning themselves or setting fire to the set. However, there were a few fire related issues that arose throughout the night before the show. Read the rest of this entry

Tigerblood and Winning Warlocks


It doesn’t take a genius to figure out what this post is all about. Obviously I just beat a tiger in hand to paw combat with my mystical warlock powers and am celebrating by blogging about it while sipping from my tigerblood filled chalice. It’s hard being this awesome.

In other news, Charlie Sheen just sold out his two tour dates in Chicago and Detroit for his “My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not an Option” tour. If you haven’t been paying any attention to the news or the internet lately, then let me fill you in. Read the rest of this entry
