    GOD: Bob Dylan

    Having seen the great man play to 25 thousand people last night, I can confidentely confirm that the second coming is personnified in this genius. A forthcoming song of the day, Kieron?

    You could be right ... I read somewhere that there's a famous church in Denmark (or somewhere thereabouts) featuring a statue of Saint Micheal with the face of Bob Dylan. Apparantly the sculptor who created said statue was a Dylan nut, and it's taken 30-odd years to get him to admit who the model for the face was. Spooky ...

    Probably eventually, James. Not the world's biggest Dylan fan, but certain of his works cut the requisite shapes.

    Oh yes - what /is/ smoking monkey studios?

    We are a small amature development studio, working on two projects at the moment, a traditional adventure, currently called Project: Morpheus and a single player MOD for Deus Ex, called Zero.

    No. There's an argument that was in Q that sums up my position, namely: He can't write music and his lyrics are pretentious shit, compared to the poetry that people think he writes.

    As long as you enjoy him, that's the main thing.

    Kieron - Not yet, getting it done in Flash. I will post here in future in reference to it. Mostly in my sig.

    Mr T - The man writes poetry, brilliant and inspiring. The music is a diversion of his genius. Calling it pretentious merely shows a greater ignorance. The mere usage of a swear in expression of view shows incomprehension.

    Looking forward to seeing the site - you've certainly intrigued me enough on this forum to go nose properly.

    Okay. I concede your point, because I hate making enemies. You've got to admit though, the Hearts of Fire phase was a bit iffy.

    A URL for the site, please?

    Yes when Dylan found God, in the Christian sense, his music suffered.


    And thank you Kieron. Your work has proven an inspiration as the recent ISA article will testify. Alas journalism in Ireland is still party based, with no room for "wierd" views.

    If you're really intrested, consider moving to England. EU, so not major problems. Good writing travels. If you want to work in the games industry, willingness to move anywhere's a pretty good attribute to cultivate.

    Right job came up and I'd move anywhere in the Universe to do it. With the possible exception of Stafford.

    Alas, my interest in journalism is strictly amature at this stage, as I wish to enter the games industry proper as soon as possible. Hence, one may note, the amature studio.

    Yeah, Irish journalism is tired and rubbish, much like the rest of this mediocre little nation. *spits*

    One has to buy the Guardian not for ideological reasons, but for the practical reason that it's the only paper on sale with reasonable journalism. Notice how The Irish Times seems to get nearly all its stories from Reuters/Guardian News Service? Lame. And Kevin Myers.. God how out of date!

    Filthy country.

    The Irish Times is a pathetic excuse for a collection of ripped off articles. I buy the Socialist Worker, merely for the stirring propaganda. I would hate living here, but then I have great friends. As soon as our economy downfalls, and I am old enough(which should hopefully coincide), I am out of here.

    Orgy, are you from Ireland yourself?
