Every week Roisin Peddle takes a look at ten stories making the headlines here at Studenty.me.
One of the silliest ads around at the moment is the one where the skydive instructor tells his bewildered skydivers to pull on the sheep clock which release their rubber duck and he’ll see them on the cupcake. In this spirit, I present a wide, diverse and even disparate group of articles for your edification this Sunday.
(Can they tell I’ve ran out of ideas yet? Well, not if you don’t tell them- Ed).
1. The latest is that they’re going to take the Tupac hologram on tour, meaning the legendary rapper will ‘perform’ sixteen years after his death. Adam McAllister explains just how they brought Tupac back at Coachella.
2. Tom McCarthy talks to Dick Valentine, lead singer of Electric Six, about his solo album, mysterious future projects, and Bono. Danger! Danger! High voltage!
3. James Bond not only lives on in film form, but Ian Fleming’s novels are also being continued by a new generation. Melissa Devlin looks forward to William Boyd’s new novel, which promises to bring Bond back to basics.
4. Rebecca Maher talks to legendary journalist John A. Murphy about his career, journalism today and meeting the Pope.
5. When was the last time you sat down and read a book? Simon Bourke laments his ever-decreasing attention span and the loss of a once-beloved hobby.
6. If you’re not lucky enough to live in Galway, it’s somewhere everyone must visit. Meghann Scully lists ten things you must do in the City of the Tribes.
7. Ireland was shocked this week with footage of an elderly couple being evicted from their home in Dublin. Colette Sexton wonders if all is as it seems with the Kellys…
8. Have you ever broken a bus rule? Roisin Peddle has the list of things you shouldn’t do on public transport.
9. Come on, let’s face it. Every girl has one. A sneaking crush on a beautiful, talented, female celebrity. Jane Quigley spells out the girls we girls love to love.
10. Last week was the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, and the occasion was marked in locations all over the world. Belfast’s Lauren Penman is glad the city is returning to normality. Meanwhile, Galway’s official Titanic correspondent, Katy Quinn wrote her final review of Julian Fellowes’ mini-series. She also went to see James Cameron’s famous version in glorious 3D. Is it worth seeing again on the big screen?
