love this! rudolph you don't have to put on the red light...

this is hilarious (i think?) - lego civil unrest set...perfect for fascist parents worried their kids might care...

the tim minchin baby jesus song you won't be hearing on jonathan ross tomrrow night...

Being Christmas, I thought it would be fun to do a song about Jesus, but being TV, I knew it would have to be gentle. The idea was to compare him to Woody Allen (short, Jewish, philosophical, a bit hesitant), and expand into redefining his other alleged attributes using modern, popular-culture terminology.

Subsequently, Suzi [producer] and her team edited the show and everybody was happy. Suzi felt it had a nice balance of big-ticket celeb action, local talent, and a nice bit of that cheeky, iconoclastic spirit for which Jonathan is known and widely loved.

And then someone got nervous and sent the tape to ITV’s director of television, Peter Fincham.

And Peter Fincham demanded that I be cut from the show.

He did this because he’s scared of the ranty, shit-stirring, right-wing press, and of the small minority of Brits who believe they have a right to go through life protected from anything that challenges them in any way.

ahhhh my little angel in the nativity play....and she is the worst singer ever....eek!

This is perhaps a little festive but definitely guaranteed to make you laugh out loud. I am the embarrassed angel in the middle with the gold tinsel halo. You can't really miss my little sister with her humongous wings, she definitely steals the show. The person filming is baby Jesus' mother...who amazingly managed to sleep all the way through!

holy freak that's a wave! tow-in surfing mullaghmore stylee (last monday folks) how disappointing it won't embed soooo worth clicking through on though...
MULLAGHMORE went for broke during a gap between two storm systems on Monday, December 12th.
Why was it so big? Because the storm was so close. Why didn't they run the Billabong Tow comp? Because storm number two was too close. Morning's perfection rolled into a stormforce afternoon but not before allowing a thrills-and-spills tow and session in the teeth of the storm.
"Well what a day, it had it all, we all agree it was some of the hollowest nastiest 20ft plus barrels we have ever had out there" Said Richie Fitzgerald. "Great crew, me, Gav, Paul, Nezza, Dylan, Pete, Barry, Roo, Easkey, Jayce, Lyndon, and, we all had some mental waves."
It was a brutal day in the frigid Irish waters. Casualty list included Jayce Robinson's knee, a couple of tow boards and Paul O'Kane's ski. Barry Mottershead got absolutely hosed from steep and deep whilst Fergal Smith and Tom Lowe's paddling stole the show.
"It was truly epic seeing Tom, Ferg and Dan Skaj paddle those waves from the peak." Said Mickey Smith "Next level shit."
