Hello Gentlefolk

A request has come flooding in looking for the "Rocking 'Slips Santa" animation.

A version of it has been made available on the homepage for your perusal.

Only made possible by the foresight of Stefan And/Or Taff who saved it from oblivion due to my inability to stay abreast of technology!

May I take this opportunity to wish everyone and their families and friends a happy and safe Christmas and New Year.

Ignore the haters/deniers/shouters - get your jabs please.

Best,

Noel

1/Yes
2/Yes
3/Yes (but it'd better fit, otherwise I'll be choking you with it!)

Please pass on my best regards, hopes, and wishes to your wonderful, beautiful wife.

Noel.

Apologies for my belated response to the kind birthday wishes.

I've been busier than a sniffer-dog in an Amsterdam warehouse.

I hope everyone enjoyed the Glorious Twelfth of July. For those not of these shores, it is a "cultural" celebration (for those of a certain persuasion) of a pitched battle between a Dutch guy and an Englishman which took place on this Island over 330 years ago near Drogheda.

It took more than 300 years for the other event of any import to take place in Drogheda when Horslips did their come-back Warm-Up gigs in McHughs.

I don't remember these gigs with great fondness. I was asked by Barry to come up with a Ticketing System which favoured the contributors to this site.

Having done so I was given great credit by many in attendance, showing their thanks by buying me drink.

I didn't put my hand in my pocket those nights, and I am living proof that the alcohol I consumed did not make me fat. It made me lean... up against walls, tables, pillars, the floor, and other people...

I detect that this has discussion risks going somewhat off-topic.

I could be wrong, but I can't help but feel that the term "You're Fired!" may get us back on an even keel (a naughty-cal term my much more erudite brother could elaborate on.)

The CD mentioned in the topic header was the first music to be played in our somewhat aged but amp-ly serviceable acoustic devices. And much to my disappointment, my partner loves it!

Then again, she loves me. Which proves that there's no accounting for taste (unless you cannot swallow the flavour of defeat with any decorum, in which case I'll convince the Supreme Court that my arse smells of a Ring-A-Rosey.)

In the words of the only true Bard. "I'm naw awa' tae Biden awa'..."

May the Man Who Sold America win... Alaska. Bought from the Russians for a Dollar a Day, and a Lifetime to Pay. # 3 College Votes. 3 College Votes. 3 College Votes. 3 College Votes. 3 College Votes. 3 College Votes.
3 College Votes. 3 College Votes. 3 College Votes...
# (... and End, after a prolonged sense of anticipation.)

Republicans? "They haven't gone away, you know!" (Pers. comm. G Adams. Date TBC)

Now then, where'd I leave my beer, and why's my dog licking her lips? She likes bitter, and she plastered the doorway with wallpaper so that I couldn't watch.

I'm gonna sue! She doesn't realize that her residency is only a single-term contract.

Edited to correct some suspicious irregularities in my drink fuelled euphoria. When I read all the memes regarding "Stop The Count!", I thought it was an offensive typo.

Thanks for the birthday wishes and Stefan for posting up thon photo. Next time you're going out for a drive, best check underneath yer car!

I'm 3 days into a 2 day hangover - that's showing my age indeed.

For those who may be uninitiated may I recommend the latest season of The Young Offenders. Not only outrageously funny, but some interesting cultural references, Aslan's "Crazy World", a revisit of The Frank and Walters' "After All" (which I think reached the dizzy heights of being on Top of the Pops), and an interesting take on a song you may have heard live at the O2 Dublin Reboot called "Parachute" by Something Happens, I think I was at the bar for that one...

Iain,

I suspect he means the former, in growing up in the same household, any manoeuvre or weaponry was deemed acceptable under the Ballymena Convention. My wee brother's Weapon of Choice were metal toy cars - launched with force and accuracy, as a sniper he could keep you pinned behind a couch for hours, until the Blue Berets (our parents) returned from work.

Stefan had his own approach, he broke his fiddle over my head - but then again he always had a history of violins.

I would counsel any potential assailants not to raise the stakes by getting into fights with ugly people - we have nothing to lose.

See yous on the Sunday. I gave up my ticket so my folks in law could go as family on the Sat.

Indeedy, Happy Birthday Johnny and Eamon, albeit belatedly.

Sorry I missed these, I've been busy on social media seeking help regarding various forms of Addiction.

Firstly, I joined a group on Suckerberg's effort addressing Anxiety and Depression. That was great. I now realise I can handle Despair - it's Hope I cannot tolerate.

I then went over to Twitter and Rebranded myself as "Jim'll Brexit" but the account was closed because the rebranding was deemed in "bad taste". They advised me to join the Conservative Party in order to get around that. However, I set very low standards, and I regularly fail to achieve them, but I still couldn't dance underneath a limbo-bar buried in the ground.

So I joined a Bible Study group on Reddit. BORING. Thank God I'm an athiest.

On Instagram and I became very self-aware regarding Internet Bullying. It's hard to believe but there I found 4 Neanderthals constantly trolling one poor guy. That was until I joined in. He didn't stand a chance against 5 of us.

Anyway, my research continues...

PS And in real-time Happy Birthday to my own son, Shane, who is 19 today. I was advised on the day that he was born that the date has an importance in history. JFK was assassinated '63. In 1990, Thatcher jumped before she was pushed - that was a Major victory! (Our friends across the pond may struggle with that one.)

Best to all. Look forward to meeting whoever's there in Derry, etc.

Noel

Thanks Taff.

I'm not (at the minute) planning on Culdaff. (But this isn't in stone - I might need to blag my way in, given that it's sold out.)

Just a quickie as I'm doing this "homer" at my work!

But it's quiet as it's approaching the first week of the 3 weeks of the Twelfth Fortnight!

Horslips merchandise is now available from
https://www.celticnote.com/search?q=horslips.

The previous site has been retired.

Yep.

I'll need to do some digging around, but I suspect that it's to do with the site hosts, who have been making changes to (updating) the versions of the script used to support this forum.

Edited to say - it's actually just filtering anything that hasn't been posted in the last 100 days, if you expand the search you should get the links to topics.

Hmmm - the hosts of the site upgraded the scripting system without telling me...

I'll try to iron out glitches in time.

Thanks for the reminder!

Although I am now considered to be in my mid-fifties, I'm sure I can still boast of being one of the Juniors of the Horslips Pack.

This week, I'm moving into a new house, and the designated "Green Room" is at the top of the house. So I'll have more than one flight of stairs to enable me to balance things up with a titanium plate in my left shoulder!

A belated thank you for your good wishes and reminders!

It's hard to believe that a full year has come and gone since Johnny played in Dungannon.

Now I'm 53, I probably need some advice from the... more-life-experiencers out there. The older I get, it seems the more plate-spinning I have to do. I thought it was meant to get easier the older one got.

Hope we have some opportunity for a bash soon. Maybe we can get some cardboard cutouts and put spandex on them.

It might be Noel's favourite ablum (I'll see to him Gussy) and I think I heard that Philip Chevron rated it up top


Stefan's memory for something I told him many years ago is highly accurate. In fact, I can confirm, without a hint of doubt, "Aliens" is easily within my Top 12 of "Favourite Horslips Albums".

I have been keeping my thoughts to myself. I don't want to give it away that I don't understand what "good looks" and " mannerly behaviour" means.

I think I know what "extreme" means.

And so, with the Big Event over (Congratulations to the USA although I thought their celebrations were OTT).



The impossible occurs as I find comfort on a Monday that it is only a few days to the next Big Event... The Unveiling of the "Insider at RTE" at some arty bash in Dublin.

Be still my quivering 'nads.

From a very excited Eamon Carr... here's a message he asked to be shared about Dusk Fundit campaign which was lead by Andy Cummins and which exceeded it's target at lunchtime.

"Astonishing result on Fundit. What a wild week! Please let everyone who helped know we are all very delighted. Andy is beyond energised. It's amazing to hear him.
'The power of the Horslips collective....' , said I.
Ho ho. "


The Dusk Fundit total was still incrementing up until 4pm when it closed.
