About 16 weeks ago Steve Rayner was listening to the show and heard us telling people how to apply for the Apprentice on TV3 , he entered , and tonight he just won a 100,000 euro a year job. Yeah :) Nice one Steve !! Delighted. Lenny and I get 10 % and a slab of dutch gold each !
You can hear him win a 100,000 euro a year salary right here
30 year old Steve Rayner came to Ireland in 2005 to look after his ailing grandparents in Cork. Having left the music industry in the UK, he found himself in sales; an area he’d never worked in before. He quickly found his feet and soon began to outpace his colleagues. Within four months of joining Sitcom he was promoted to Regional Sales Manager, and eventually moved up to being a consultant.
In 2008 Steve left the comfort of Sitcom to join fledging telecoms company Imagine, as their senior corporate account manager. Both his parents are school teachers so he doesn’t come from a business background.
Bit weird and nerdy but this Dad has rigged his entire house up into one giant Guitar Hero game.
With the use of 21,268 lights and LEDs, American Ric Turner has created a Christmas decoration for his abode that obeys the commands of the game's guitar controller.
Turner, the smoothy, is a special effects expert who used to work for Disney's Imagineering division. He told MAKEzine: "Even though the game is in "easy" mode, the lights don't provide the same timing detail as the game does, so it is much harder. Even expert Guitar Hero players have a hard time with the lights, and nobody has made it through without errors."

Shauna Wilton( P.H.D./YMCA/W.A.N.K) a professor of political sciences at the University of Alberta, also highlighted the class divide which sees Thomas and his friends at the bottom of the social ladder and the wealthy Fat Controller at the top.
She launched her study after watching the animated programme, which is shown in over 130 countries, with her three-year-old daughter.
She then analysed the plots, characters and other aspects of 23 different episodes to draw her conclusions, which she then presented at a conference of political science in Canada.
Ah Shauna ......
Bump this beeeeatch !

Let's be honest here, this is a pretty big moment for humanity - Space travel, well kind of.
Sir Richard Branson's first commercial spacecraft is finally being unveiled today after five years of top secret construction.
Paid-up passengers and VIPs have been promised a 'theatrical unveiling' in the Mojave Desert in California and a cocktail party to celebrate the groundbreaking event.
If you have 200,000 euro handy you're sorted !
I think this is going to be like the Sky + box. At the start is cost a fecking packet , but over time they start lashing it out for free.

If you fancy going minimalist with your festive spirit this year, how about this - the world's smallest snowman.
At just 0.01mm wide the space-efficient decoration is just one fifth of the width of the average human hair and has been carefully 'hand crafted' by festive scientists at the National Physical Laboratory.

The multi-platinum selling Hip-Hop artist has just recorded a voice which can be downloaded onto TomTom GPS devices. He is said to have spent hours in the studio recording distinctive "Snoop Speak" phrases like "Keep left ahead, and you'll be bonafide" to help you find your way.
Other Snoop gems include; "Turn around when possible and keep it 'G', ya d-i-g?" and "Take tha third left, and while you're at it, put in some of that Snoop Dogg!"

Kseniya Simonova is the amazing winner of "Ukrain's got talent 2009". All she needed was a bit of sand to demonstrate the history of her country during World War 2. You can see how emotional the audience became.

Late on Saturday night, 2009 November 21, a very bright meteor was seen flashing across the sky from the northern parts of South Africa. Tim Cooper, Director of the ASSA Comet & Meteor Section, estimates that the apparent magnitude of the meteorite was -18, but get this , they say the Meteor was the size of a rugby ball!
In the picture below is a direct hit from thousands of years ago, the meteor was the size of a house. A few more of those in south 'ifricka....... no world cup !!
A fake "press release" made the rounds late last week saying production of Technics turntables would end in February 2010, and the local head of Technics DJ for Panasonic was "quoted" as saying Australian stock would end in March.
Long regarded as the epitome of DJ equipment, the Technics 1200 and 1210 series turntables have been rumoured to be going out of production, but this has been denied by the local arm of head company Panasonic.
Panasonic's Ian North has denied the reports, and says while he is still waiting on clarification from Japan news that sales would end in March was "premature".
"We are still supplying our dealers and we still have stock coming in," North said.
However, North said that there has been "a decline in the analog market" due to the popularity of computer and CD mixing solutions.
"I wouldn't say that analog is dead but there's a lot of digital products on the market that can do the same thing," North added.

Technics are ceasing production of the 1200 and the 1210 after 35 years their shutting down in febuary. CDJ's and laptops have taken over the market.
I have always being /always will be a vinyl collector. This is pretty sad for the industry but I suppose things change and Technics have being at the forefront of clubland for 35 years. This just means the pair I have will never be sold, in fact a brand new pair will be bought before they shut shop.. just to have .. and hug now and then.
The Technics SL-1200 is a series of turntables manufactured since October 1972 by Matsushita under the brand name of Technics. Originally released as a high fidelity consumer record player, it quickly became adopted among radio and club disc jockeys. Since its release in 1978, SL-1200MK2 and its successors have been the most common turntable for DJing and scratching. The MK2 presented several improvements, including to the motor and casing. Since 1972, more than 3 million units have been sold.
It is widely regarded as one of the most durable and reliable turntables ever produced. Many of the models manufactured in the 1970's are still in heavy use. Rappers have referred to the turntable as "1200", "Tee 12's", "Technics", "Tec 12", "wheels of steel" and "ones and twos".

NOW YOU CAN BUY PERFUME THAT'S MADE FROM THE DNA OF DEAD CELEBRITIES!
Celebrity-branded fragrances are nothing new.
BRITNEY SPEARS has her own perfume. So does Christina Aguilera and Kate Moss and Posh Spice and Peter Andre and Jordan, just to name a few.
But now, a company called Antiquity has taken celebrity-branded fragrances to a whole new level by releasing a line of colognes and perfumes that are made from DNA collected from the hair clippings of dead celebrities. (???)
There's "Marilyn" created from the DNA of MARILYN MONROE.
"Monarch" created from the DNA of KATHARINE HEPBURN.
"Entrance" created from the DNA of JOAN CRAWFORD.
"Blue Suede" created from the DNA of ELVIS PRESLEY.
"IQ" created from the DNA of ALBERT EINSTEIN and . . .
"M" created from the DNA of MICHAEL JACKSON.

Is Nicolas Cage the worst actor of all time ?? ahhhh yes.
Just watched " The Knowing " and he really is tragic.
Also he is facing financial ruin. And he’s got only himself to blame!
The star has lived a lavish life, pending on cars, castles and yachts. He’s forked out tens of millions of dollars buying nine Rolls Royces, more than a dozen homes, four yachts and two castles.
Cage’s former business manager has told a US court that the actor shopped "uncontrollably" and needed to earn $30 million a year "just to maintain his lavish lifestyle".
Cage is suing Samuel Levin for $20 million accusing him of incompetence.
His greatest moments from THE WICKERMAN !
Stephen King's brand new book is called Under The Dome, about a town sealed off from the rest of the world. Now Steven Spielberg has stepped in to make sure it's a success. He wants to turn it into a TV serious.
On an entirely normal day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.
Which is all good and well... but, did The Simpsons not do this already ???
For a writer who brought you Killer clowns, mobile phones that turn you into a zombie, The shining, Green mile, and Shawshank redemption, he is actually not the
head case you would presume!
The two builders start to speculate about the occupation of the suit
Dave: - I reckon he's an accountant.
Stuart: - No way - he's a stockbroker.
Dave: - He ain't no stockbroker! A stockbroker wouldn't come in here!
The argument repeats itself for some time until the volume of beer gets the better of Dave and he makes for the toilet.
On entering the toilet he sees that the suit is standing at a urinal.
Curiosity and the several beers get the better of him.
Dave: - 'Scuse me.... no offence meant, but me and me mate were wondering what you do for a living?
Suit: - No offence taken! I'm a Logical Scientist by profession
Dave: - Oh? What's that then?
Suit: - I'll try to explain by example ... Do you have a goldfish at home?
Dave: - Er ..... mmm ... well yeah, I do as it happens!
Suit: - Well, it's logical that you keep it either in a bowl or in a
pond. Which is it?
Dave: - It's in a pond!
Suit: - Well it's reasonable to suppose that you have a large garden then?
Dave: - As it happens, yes I have got a big garden.
Suit: - Well then it's logical to assume that, in this town, if you have a large garden then you have a large house?
Dave: - As it happens I've got a five bedroom house .... built it myself!
Suit: - Well given that you've built a five bedroom house it's logical to assume that you haven't built it just for yourself and that you are quite probably married? And with a family?
Dave: - Yes I am married, I live with my wife and four children.
Suit: - Well then it is logical to assume that you are sexually active with your wife on a regular basis?
Dave: - Yep! Five times a week!
Suit: - Well then it is logical to suggest that you don't masturbate very often?
Dave: - Do what? Not me, mate!
Suit: - Well there you are! That's logical science at work!
Dave: - How's that then?
Suit: - Well from finding out that you had a goldfish, I've told you about your sex life!
Dave: - I see! That's pretty impressive. Thanks mate!
Both leave the toilet and Dave returns to his mate.
Stuart: - I see the suit was in there. Did you ask him what he does?
Dave: - Yep! He's a logical scientist!
Stuart: - What's that then?
Dave: - I'll try and explain. Do you have a goldfish?
Stuart: - Nope
Dave: - Well then, you're a wanker

You missed a great game. You and Henry should go for a pint .... no really ye should.

Northern soul is a music and dance movement that emerged from the British mod scene, initially in northern England in the late 1960s. Northern soul mainly consists of a particular style black American soul ,based on the heavy beat and fast tempo of the mid-1960s Motown sound… so I hear.
The Wigan casino was the most famous venue in the UK for these kinds of nights, it would be on a par with Sir Henrys in Cork for house music I suppose.
My own Mum and Dad were still in secondary school when the amphetamine stuffed soul club was at its peak.
Northern soul dancing should look like this ……..
Not like this ....

Those crazy Japanese have created a bra that transforms into a Putting Green
Japanese lingerie company called Triumph has just come out with a new, corset-style BRA that can be removed and unrolled to create a five-foot PUTTING GREEN.
It's called the Nice Cup-In-Bra. And when you sink a putt into one of the cups, a built-in speaker belts out a congratulatory "Nice shot!
It also features ............
•Pockets for extra golf balls and tees
•A detachable flag pin that serves as a score pencil
•And a flag sporting the words "Be Quiet" for use on the course
