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.

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.

I've been looking forward to this event. However...

One has a reputation to maintain! Having seen glimpses of the script of the Play, I feel that it lacks a little something, a little... Je nes sais quoi.

I’m not too sure what exactly, but addled with a suitable infusion of the appropriate mixtures of alcohol, I think there’s a better-than-even chance that someone (currently unknown) could be enacting a stage-crash invasion to value-add to the production with an impromptu performance of an additional verse or two just to keep the cast on their toes.

Having gotten a B in my O-Level English Literature, I’ve always fancied myself as the Bard of Belfast. I was thinking along the lines of something with a different meter – a different rhythm if you like. Here’s one I’m working on.

The young warrior "Culann's Hound"
Saw the Morrigan on the Battleground
She seemed to be “well fit”.
So he asked “how’s about it?”
So she bent over and then turned around!


I’m still working on the finer points, but I imagine it should raise some interest, and the bonus that my usual Síochána Taxi won't be too long to take me a free ride to my overnight accommodation (also free and with a reasonable breakfast thrown in..)

The inspirational figure of Ireland's mythological super-hero, Cú Chulainn, is the centre of DUSK, a new verse play by writer and musician Eamon Carr, which Red Iron Productions will stage in October.

Directed by award-winning theatre-maker Denis Conway, Dusk will feature a cast of leading Irish actors that includes Garrett Lombard, Denis Conway and Caoimhe Mulcahy. There will be one special performance of Dusk in the GPO on October 6th prior to its week long run in The New Theatre. Pledging to this project through Fundit is the only way to ensure a ticket to the GPO performance. Funders will receive their tickets via email a week before.

In this unique drama, influenced by Agallamh na Seanórach (Colloquy of the Elders) and the Japanese Noh tradition, the ghost of Cú Chulainn appears in conversation with a modern young woman. His Nemesis, the Morrigan, is also a character in this play.

Dusk explores a provocative correlation between Irish myth and contemporary reality as unseen influences, which lie beneath the surface of our everyday world, manifest themselves.

Andy Cummins began his theatre career with Red Kettle Theatre Company in 1995 and has worked as a freelance producer for the last five years before setting up Red Iron Productions this year.

Writer Eamon Carr is a journalist, a published poet and member of the band Horslips.

Director Denis Conway is a multiple award winning actor and director and has played leading roles for The Gate Theatre and The Abbey Theatre.

Garrett Lombard is one of Irelands foremost leading actors and most recently featured in Druid's Waiting for Godot.

Crowdfunding is a terrific way for a new company like us to get in touch with like minded people and to build support for this project The reasons are firstly to raise funds to bring this brilliant new play to life, and secondly to establish a first name basis link with those we consider to be the most important arbiters of the project, the audience. We will also apply for local authority funding.

To do this project the justice it deserves we need roughly €25k to make it to closing night. This includes artist fees. building sets, hiring venues and paying for insurance, transport and rehearsal time. This is a high quality professional production and we intend to make it the best we can. We have set a target of €5k here but we hope to exceed that.

Staging any new play in Ireland is a difficult enough task by itself when you consider how high the bar has been set by our contemporaries. The company has already set aside its time, which is no small investment, and with meaning and purpose we intend to see this project through to its best possible conclusion. With the help of like minded funders this will be a memorable theatrical experience.

We consider crowd funders to be the bravest and most dedicated of all our potential backers and we thank you for your consideration for this.



The beautifully designed logo for DUSK is the work of artist Syd Bluett, an old friend of Eamon's. Anyone that is out there that can spread the word, please feel free to publish this with any relevant details.

Syd on the logo:
The logo for Eamon's play was painted not with a brush but with twigs, to keep it raw and moreover get it closer in feel to the pseudo-history time of the play's hero's life – I doubt they'd have had much truck with things like brushes back 'then'.

Thanks everyone for your good wishes. For my birthday, I certainly got some great and unexpected presents, I'll elaborate later.

At this moment I have to take the Arm-Breaker out to the seaside, he's had the scoots and his bangle-area is clabbered with dried-skitter. Throwing a ball into the sea a few times should help.

More anon.

Admin, the footy to date has offered up some interesting matches. Both Irish squads showed spark. Iceland v Portugal was a study of dogged determination on the part of Iceland.

The Italians still play thei best defence of any nation and found the mark up front. Easter European clubs still play a rugged in your face style which though exciting to watch compared to say the English, won't see them through to the later stages. The smaller nations still provide some tension but their bench will be too short in the end and the more talented entire slate of games. teams with depth shall rule the day. All in all though so far some good matches. Since I am now awake everyday by 4:30am I have lots of opportunity to see the

A quick chance to bump this post. Thanks Taff for uploading.

And say hello.

My kid's in the middle of GCSE's and performing as José 'Joe' Vegas in a local production of Fame. So between Taxiing and Tuition I'm not getting to see much of the footy.

Was sorry about to hear about Henry McCullough. His recounting of telling McCartney that he'd "know when he 'got there'" (or something to that extent) on Wings' My Love is the mark of a great guitarist.

At the risk of being morbid, I was at a school-mate's Dad's funeral last-week, and amongst the mourners I was met by a woman who called me by my first name, and gave me a hug and kiss. As usual I played the "how are you doing?" façade until I remembered her. It was only half-way through the service that I realised she was my first proper girlfriend!

I haven't been so mortified since I was implicated in the Jim Lockhart's Daughter Denied By Diabetic scandal.

Maybe I'll catch up with some of you in Dungannon.

This thread has turned into fuck all about the topic. This is not a social interfuckyerwotsit site. I don't have an Icon for, "Busted an arm, lost a sibling, fucked up a marriage, got a 15-something kid, getting chased by police (pronounced Polis) who else in this autocratic society actually allows the Police to Police themselves. Jesus! next thing we'll have a Unionist Justice Minister.

How's yer garden?.... "well my rhodos are still invasive, my dandelions are coming on shockingly well ever since I rooted out those damned Saffron Croci.

Had a pile recently? Ouch. crapped a hedgehog... backwards.

Wow! How was it?

I was disappointed. More lavendar than violent

Jesus!

Hi everyone. I am well balanced. I've got a chip on each shoulder. A battered one on the left and a titanium one on the right...

Folks, I'm making a heartfelt and somewhat awkward attempt to acknowledge the good wishes I've gotten on here. They are much appreciated.

Taff has filled you in with some detail. The rest is ongoing history.

29/11/15: Sunday 5 pm. Making a slow roast and unable to face my promise of cleaning the bog, I unintentionally threw myself down a flight of ceramic stairs. After a heavy night with a mate, I needed a "hair of the dog". It is somewhat befitting that the dog got the blame for tripping me up.

As I Iay on my back at the bottom of the footwell, good fortune had delivered my mobile adjacent to my left hand - my professional training kicked in. Remembering the useful and informative H&S Course in the civil service I attended lately, I emailed the H&S Helpdesk, and prepared for rescue. Being a Sunday night, and Rescue being promised within 3 working days in Urgent situations, I knew all I had to do was drink my own urine, use sunlight to photosynthesize basic hydro-carbons for sustenance, and lie in my own soil for more than 127 hours knowing that Danny Boyle would be interested in making a film of my plight. Contemplating the title of the forthcoming blockbuster such as “BumDog Millionaire”, my resilience (I haven’t been on the “Personal Resilience” course yet!) succumbed after 30 seconds, I texted my girlfriend and asked her to call the paramedics.

20 minutes later I became aware of the Mitchell Brothers out of EastEnders bouncing the front door repeatedly off my head. They got me to my feet and inspected the swelling around my armpit, which had started to resemble one of those chilli & garlic pickled octopuses arseholes that a workmate with exotic tastes likes to indulge in at lunchtimes stinking the place out. Phil Mitchell growled, “I’m not an expert but you may want to get that checked at A&E!”

Thinking, as an ex-rugby player "I've done worse", and having a severe aversion for hospitals, I declined an ambulance trip and went for a lie down until the pain went away. Given that my right arm didn't belong to me any more - I was hoping to take advantage of that situation later. In hindsight, I heavily recommend that anyone who wishes to masturbate using a numbed hand, just stick with the tried and tested method of sitting on it for 15 minutes beforehand. I need to explain that my rugby carreer was cut short. Not due to injury, merely that I had the same accelleration as a 3-toed sloth and the lateral leeway of the Titanic

------------

30/11/15: Mondays are a real bastard at the best of times... but this was different. To the person who coined the phrase "Pain is only in the mind" - try stabbing yourself repeatedly in the shoulder with a butter knife! I had to accept that I was going to hospital. I may have dislocated my shoulder... or worse. My ladyfriend stepped up to the mark, gleefully taking the day off and driving me to Down Hozzie, hitting every pothole at 80mph, sniggering at my agonised whimpering.

Got a text from Rory van R.

Post XRay, the consultant said he was already on the phone to the orthopaedic surgeon at the Ulster Hospital. He explained the damage I'd done. Being no medical expert I can only paraphrase... basically I was in "Misery" both in Body and Film. I'm James Caan - and Kathy Bates had a field day with a 14lb lump-hammer, a cold-chisel, a set of mole-grips, 2 breeze-blocks, a bottle of ordinary household bleach - and my shoulder. He asked if would I feel sick if he showed me the Xray plate? "Of course not!", I barked. I saw the xray plate and near barfed my ring up around his stethoscope. Relief came in the fact that I hadn’t dislocated my shoulder at all – I had snapped the humerus clean off and managed to turn the remaining fragment 90 degrees to protrude via my axilla (that's an armpit to the layperson.)

Got a text from Rory van R.

I was told to report to the Ulster Hospital, pleading with my driver to go via the smoothest roads. It's amazing the ground that a VW Polo can negotiate at speed, it would knock an 86 Tonne T-28 Tank into a cocked hat. Apparently Donald J Trump has a pre-order for 400 VW Polos placed with my girlfriend. David Cameron, not to be outdone, has ordered a set of alloys.

Got a text from Rory van R.

Entering A&E at Dundonald under the metal arch emblazened with a decorative version from Dante's Divine Comedy pronouncing "All hope, abandon ye who enter here"... I honestly thought I was going back to the misery that is my work for a split second. I entered a room devoid of soul, filled with the darkest and grim remnants of the leftover wreckage of dismal humanity where the Devil himself would shite his fiery britches... again I honestly thought I was going to work for a split second. Having handed in my paperwork, I was wheeled into a back area, and did nothing but sit in intense agony for eternity. I honestly thought I was at work for a split-lifetime.

Got a text from Rory van R.

Finally, I got invited into a private medical cubicle where I got the interrogation. When you need help I suppose honesty is the best option
Have I any medical conditions? "Yes, high blood pressure."
Do I smoke? "Yes about 10 a day."
Do I drink? "Yes, I'm alcoholic."
Recreational drugs? "Tried them recently and pished the bed."
Mental issues? "Yes, I'm on anti-psychotic medication."
Stress issues? "Yes I'm on sedatives."
What do you do for a living? "Errrr.... Sorry? What?"
What do you work as? "I'm a male-stripper, pole-dancer and glory-hole attendant at a gay-nightclub."

Aw come on! I couldn't tell him I was a civil servant!

Got a text from Rory van R.

The consultant left me, suggesting I'd be lucky to get a slot by Friday - my heart sank harder than as if about to search for the TV remote control in my mother's house. Futile!

Got a text from Rory van R.

Like a paraplegic walrus, I hauled myself up onto the bed when a porter came in with a wheelchair announcing they had a bed for me.

In the lift on the way up to floor 5, neither of us were very chatty, so I was relieved that the porter started arsing about on his mobile phone.

He broke the silence with his eyes fixed on his phone.... "Excuse me, do you know someone called 'Rory van R'?"

So, I got wheeled into a ward where, being a mere 51 years old, I was at least 300 epochs junior to the youngest of the inmates in the ward. A nurse came around and put one of those tabs on your wrist so they don't perform a hysterectomy or something by mistake. Mine said "Gerry Atrick D.O.B. 230764". I was relieved to hear that D.O.B. stood for "date of birth", and not a reference to any traditional background.

I was advised by a trauma specialist that my injury had been prioritised, and I was first in line for surgery in the morning, therefore I was on the Nil By Mouth cast. I desperately hoped that this did not involve getting the living fuck kicked out of me by Ray Winstone. I’ve seen what he can do with a sock and 3 snooker balls.

Looking out on the dimming of the day 5 floors up, I realised I was sharing a ward with a “Live One” whose mantra consisted of relentlessly repeating the word “Nurse!” at the top of her voice.

I learned that her name was Margaret, and by 4 o’clock in the morning, she had achieved the impossible. She had succeeded at becoming the most despised person named “Margaret” in my personal living history.

Relentlessly... "Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse!”

Had I been enabled with 2 good arms, I would have “Nursed” Margaret out of that 5th floor window, and counted the number of times she bayed the word “Nurse!” before crashing through something hard, explosive, or mechanical - like a meat-grinder.

Instead, I found my better side and went to make her more comfortable. Knowing full well she was being ignored, I fluffed her pillows, and set them down gently over her face, weighing them down using a fire-extinguisher previously being used for propping a firedoor open, stopping only to grab a large red marker pen to write the letters DNR on her BedBoard, I made my way back to my bed designed to fit the average person of 4’3” height.

------

01/12/15: Waking to the yelps of “Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse!”, with sinking heart I revised my thoughts on what type of “Extinguisher” should have been used. An Automatic M60 filling the airspace between myself and Margaret with high-velocity concave-tipped cyanide-laden dumdums would have done the trick, but there was a 3-day waiting period from E-Bay, and Amazon wanted me to “go Premium.”

I was hungry, tired, in a shitload of pain, and annoyed at my failed euthanasia attempt. Most of all I was thirsty and was only allowed sips of water, hardly enough to wet the beak.

Anyhow, thoughts turned to my impending operation when the orthopaedic surgeon explained the procedure:

In a nutshell, I was going to get a Proximal Humeral Internal Locking System (AKA a “Philos-Plate”) with a Platelength of 90 mm, short, shaft 3 holes– Platelength 114 mm, long, shaft 5 holes – 9 proximal screw holes in section A–E for LCP Locking screws of 3.5 mm – 10 proximal suture holes – 5 distal LCP Combi-holes in the shaft section F–H for cortex screws of 3.5 mm and cancellous bone screws at 4.0 mm and LCP Locking screws 3.5 mm pure titanium (CPTI) and implant steel (SSt) LCP Locking Screws at 3.5 mm – Self-tapping Locking screw lengths: 50 mm 60 mm 42 mm 52 mm 45 mm 55 mm 38 mm 48 mm 28 mm with Philos Aiming Device Drill Sleeve System for Aiming the Device Centering Sleeve for the Philos Aiming Device Drill Sleeve for a Philos Aiming Device Centering Sleeve for a Kirschner Wire.

if anyone has the stomach, you'll see a similar operation below:


It's a fairly mechanical procedure...

I didn't understand it.

I queried... “So are you going to operate or fix someone’s fucking car?”

“No, it’s a tried and tested Surgical technique. We’ll attach an aiming device to plate insert the stabilization pin of the aiming device in the specially provided hole on the Philos plate. Then use the screwdriver to tighten securing screw of the aiming device. After that we’ll reduce the fracture and reduce the head fragments and check the reduction under the image intensifier. Then we’ll integrate bone-fragments via reduction with Kirschner wires by placing one or more thick sutures in the region of the insertion of the supraspinatus, infraspinatus and the subcapsular tendon. We’ll position the plate proximally at least 8 mm distal to the upper end of the greater tubercle (rotator cuff insertion). After we determine the position of the plate using a Kirschner we’ll then insert the Kirschner wire into the proximal guide hole of the insertion guide below the rotator cuff so that the Kirschner wire aims at the proximal joint surface.”

“So you are fixing someone’s fucking car!”

“Are you struggling with my terminology?”

“No! I’d like to speak to an orthopaedic surgeon, not a fucking mechanical engineer!”

“Look, never mind, can you sign this Consent form?”

“No.”

“Why not?”

“I’m right-handed and can’t sign anything. it’s something to do with my being incompetent without having adequate cover. I can only do stuff with a bin-lid attached to my ass.”

“I suggest you sign.”

“What if I don’t?”

“Then you can fuck off and wait for 3 years until your bone grows out via your anus. That may be humerus but you certainly won’t find it funny!”

“Where’s the form? I’ll sign. I’ll sign. So, when do I go to Theatre?”

“You’re not going to Theatre for this procedure Mr Ferris.”

“Where am I going then?

“Kwik-Fit.”

Got a text from Rory van R/

So having tubes stuck into my good arm, and having donned one of those gowns that shows the crack of your arse when you dander around the ward, with sedatives and anaesthetics coursing through me, I passed out as my bed was hoisted onto the back of a pick-up lorry....

.... I awaken. Oxygen mask over my face. Groggy. Light burning my eyes. Pain coursing through me – my groin feels as if it’s been stretched over several time-zones.

“How’d it go?”

“We are very pleased to inform you that the biopsy of the redness on your penis was not cancerous. But since you were this far, we amputated anyway.”

I got wheeled back to the Twighlight Zone...

“Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse! Nurse!...”

Aw fuck, what next?!

Got a text from Rory an R....

Anyway The recovery process is both agonising and agonisingly slow. As it happened when I punched my bone fragment through my armpit, I have severely damaged the radial and medial nerves which control motor and sensory functions to my right hand.

I'm very right handed so the obvious jokes apply, my clagnuts are the size of small planets, and I'm suffering scrotal elephantiasis.

Thanks to all again and I'll be in toucH.

In the spirit of Taff, I'm going to leave you with my own selfie which is HEAVY METAL!

I'll be in touch soon. Thanks again friends.
