i've got a theory....

Last night barsine, her sister, her cousins and I went to see a stage production of Once More With Feeling in UCD. As barsine said in her LJ, it was the greatest night's entertainment ever! Even though Spike was pretty terrible. I was trying so hard not to laugh during 'Rest in Peace' I practically had an apoplectic fit, and kept grabbing onto barsine in my hysteria (sorry, H!). But the whole night was absolutely brilliant, and if any of you, anywhere, get the chance to see a stage production of the Greatest Musical Ever, do it.

I have to say, though, UCD really is a hideous concrete wasteland. I hadn't been out there for ages, so I'd sort of forgotten how hideous it is. I mean, I know Trinity is all pretty and cobbled and 18th century-building-filled and everything, so it's not fair to compare, and I'm sorry for insulting the alma mater of any current or former Belfield denizens who may be reading this but...damn, it's a depressingly ugly place. It's as if Trinity were filled with nothing but copies of the Arts Block. Which, although I have a great fondness for the Trinity Arts Block, being the place where I first met Patrick and also where I spent a lot of time hanging out drinking hot chocolate and having pretentious conversations with my equally pretentious chums down on the chocolate boxes by the Ed Burke when I should have been going to lectures, is not a pretty thought.

Anyway! Verdict on last night: UCD campus depressing and hideous, UCD's drama society very entertaining. Hurrah!

Speaking of Ross O'Carroll-Kelly, I read an interview with the man behind the character (Paul Howard) a while back where he said that he'd heard that people of the D4 wannabe persuasion had taken to emulating him and driving around the likes of Tallaght screaming "Affluence!" and The Breadline!" from their BMWs - and doing it without the slightest knowledge that R.O'C.K. was written with the intention of taking the piss out of people just like them.

I knew from going to school in D4 that there was more than a grain of truth behind R.O'C.K, but jesus...

I read that interview and was appalled! Actually, I worked with Paul H for years. He's from around Ballybrack and so spent his youth in a prime location for observing the likes of R. O'C.K. from a slight distance.
