New VidCast!


As you well know, us CultureSluts are big indie movie fans. and big podcast fans. and we work on the wildlight channel. and our mate Nicky founded the Darklight Film Festival. So .... we thought .....why don't we do a Video Podcast about indie movies, what's on wildlight and darklight news. And so.. here is the first one... it's called the LIGHTSHOW. In this episode: Andrew Keogh, a member of the Dublin-based filmmaking group, Dogmedia Productions, who made the films 'Jennie Balfe' and 'The Confession Sessions' and clips from "Nun Fight Club". and don't worry we should get better with the lighting etc as we go on...:-).

CultureSluts Podcast #8

Podcast #8

We've got a LONG show this week, as we're joined by lovely guests Tim Neosupervital and Fergal O'Byrne.

We start off talking music; different venues around Ireland, from both a musician's and punters viewpoint. Besides being Neosupervital, Tim also discusses being the touring drummer with Bell X1, and we soon move on to the worst album covers in the world.
Here's a sample, but check all of em out on out Flickr page





We then discuss Fergal's book "Trolley Ride in Manhattan" and the Irish Film and Television Awards.

Podcasting, RTE podcasts and opening public archives, corporate casting, as well as corporate practice, a teensy bit of politics and why the Irish are bad consumers is discussed.

Upcoming gigs include the Temple Bar Music Centre this Thursday the 10th of November- Love Action hosts Suffragete City, featuring Neosupervital and the Butterfly Explosion.

End music is Neosupervital's latest radio release: Nothing

It's another marketcast, recorded in Dublin's Market Bar, so apologies for the bad sound quality as Friday evening in a bar probably wasn't an ideal location choice.

Suffragette City @ TBMC - feat. Neosupervital

Hey Dublin CultureFans - be sure and come along to Suffragette City, the new late club I'm hosting with Sue (the other half of Love Action).

It's on every Thursday at the Temple Bar Music Centre featuring eclectic, dirty rock 'n rollectro played loudly by two ladies with impeccable dress sense. Only stipulation of the LOVE ACTION experience: it's gotta make you dance.

We're off this week due to the Revs cancelling their gig... but don't miss next week (10th Nov.) GREAT lineup including our very own personal favorite, Neosupervital. Doors are at 7.30. See y'all there!
