Moley's blog: Twenty Five
Moley is now 25 years old! Went out to dinner with Eoin and Nóirín and the prof and had a grand time, i got presents of two Bobby McFerrin live dvd's which ensure some epic viewing.
How are you? S2s are playing at a charity gig in the NCH in Dublin next wednesday as part of a great line up including Nóirín (& AMEN) Moya Brennan, Kíla, Tommy Tiernan, Keith Duffy, Cara O'Sullivan, Brendan O' Connor doing an Elvis impersonation, comedian Maeve Higgins and more and its presented by Gay Byrne! We are playin one tune which will be 'Take it Easy' from the album with some rap in the middle finished off with a short version of Sade's 'Smooth Operator'. You around Dublin next Wednesday?
Wacky gig in support of the charity 'To Russia with Love'. Me and Eoin are going to clock IMRO's coupon as well as the firstmusiccontact office which send unsigned bands to international showcases and generally help dudes like us ;)
i've been doing some rap workshops with youthreach in Limerick city, bout six lads in the class for four tuesdays, they are cool and enthusiastic, im just tryin to get em to use their heads while writing their rap instead of the old gangsta ghetto fabulous style. which is working!
I was teaching some girls in Abbeyfeale to beatbox last week too, they were fast learners and it was my first time teaching solely beatbox which is great craic!
I was down in Dzogchen Beara bhuddist retreat centre again for three nights which was also brilliantly relaxed. Me and me friend Madso were rockin some old school hip hop on the car ride down, Q-TIP, De La Soul etc and also listening to a singer called Dean Friedman who has a goofy sensibility. im reading the Tibetan Book of Living and Dying at the moment also. Which is teaching me to be mindful of my inevitable death :) Brilliant! Nice one! Happy days :)

Hope you guys are well, any news?
