Olive Recommends…A Taste of Ireland

For our friends outside of Ireland, I thought I would include a small taste of Irish life:) Enjoy!

The first is a clip from “Intermission”; an Irish film starring Colin Meaney and Colin Farrell. Deirdre O’Kane, a well-known Irish comedian features in it and it’s but a tiny sample of our infamous “customer service.”

This one made me laugh. The Gardaí are the police and these two unfortunates were the subject of a prank carried out by a member of the public. So you have two mobile ones; you use one to ring one garda station & the second to ring another station and you hold the two phones together to talk to each other. What will be the result? The following…

One of my favourite Irish comedians, Dylan Moran talks about what others think of the Irish..,tis true begorrah!

The S.I.G.I.T

 The S.I.G.I.T is one of Indonesian FEW great bands. There are a lot of bands in Indonesia but only a small amount can be considered and labeled as GREAT BAND, one of them is The S.I.G.I.T

 You can pronounce it The S.I.G.I.T as the sigit (without the dots), it pronounces see-git (similar with bit but change ‘b’ into ‘g’)

They were formed in 1994

They put their name in NME’s Stereo in 2005 “The S.I.G.I.T. – Black Amplifier.
Scorching, gonzo Zep Rock from our hot new Indonesian Friend”

Although they are still an Indie Band, they toured around Australia in 2007 and appeared at SXSW 2009 in Austin Texas and toured California and Hongkong.

I picked these 2 videos.

Money Making’ is one of my favorite songs

This one is also my favorite, it’s called Provocateur, both as a song and as a video. It’s simple but captivating.

Hope you’ll enjoy this rare talent from my country 🙂
