Summer in the City

1st of May is supposedly the beginning of the sunny season. Unfortunately that's not always the case here so maybe I'm being a little optimistic but anyway. This month's tips are based around the typical Irish concerns during sunny weather, trying to look good and getting drunk.

Also worth a mention is the dandy new site from Mr. Frankenstyles aka Stephen Kelleher, check it out.

After much recent unpleasant behaviour about the city, this month's installment takes on the cries of social apocalypse. We're not quite yet at the stage of giant police robots, luckily enough.

Don't know if it's noticeable or not but this one owes a nod to

the cheery
monsters and
of the
Where's Wally
landscapes of

Jeff Soto's
stunning paintings

and Ashley Wood's
robots, particularly
this charming chap,
Bertie the Pipebomb

And here's my
pale imitation,
with a Smiths
reference thrown
in for good measure.
