It’s a long way from Dublin to Hong Kong

Vlog 305 It’s a long way from Dublin to Hong Kong

The day for our next adventure had arrived. After some last minute shopping we made our way to the airport, flew over to London Heathrow and from there we boarded an Airbus 380 to Hong Kong. So for the next two weeks you can follow our adventure in South east Asia 🙂

Packing my vlogging gear

Vlog 304 Packing my vlogging gear

Here is a video breakdown of all the gear I take with me for our two week trip to Hong Kong and Bali. It will hopefully give you a small idea what the vlogging involves 🙂 This video was filmed on my iPhone 6, as all the other cameras were on the packing video. But once again I was reminded how capable the iPhone camera is. Hope you enjoy this packing video 🙂

Once again my girlfriend was right

Vlog 303 Once again my girlfriend was right

It is those last hours before a big trip that just goes by as a bit of a blur. So today’s vlog is definitely a random vlog. When I spend hours of editing, it is hard to find the time to vlog. But to make up for it and in-between my packing and fixing shoes, I share with you our travel plans for the next two week. Oh yeah, and we have a snippet of Liberty Hell from The Porterhouse. Hope you enjoy it 🙂

Cheap GoPro accessories

Vlog 302 Cheap GoPro accessories

In today’s vlog I am getting ready for my trip. One thing I wanted to get was a few accessories for my GoPro Session and GoPro Hero. You guys know by now that I am always on a lookout for a deal, where possible. At the same time, I have no problem paying for quality. The thing is, the official GoPro accessories are expensive, and to get what I would need right now would cost me a lot more than I can afford. So I decided to give some cheap aftermarket accessories a go. In this video I show you what I got and I will revisit this subject once I have put them to the test. Oh yeah, and I took you guys around Ranelagh 🙂

11th of September 2016 Vlog update

Vlog 301 11th of September 2016 Vlog update

I only realised the date and the significance of it after filming the weekly update, as obviously I film them day, or sometimes few days before. It’s hard to take in that its been fifteen years singe the 9/11 attacks on New York. I still remember how time just seemed to freeze and we all got glued to the TV screens for like two days. And in those moments it was hard to vision the future, but here we are. Obviously all our thoughts are for ever with those lost in the attacks and their families.

It has been a crazy busy week for me trying to get everything done before the trip, so lets get straight into it. I’m trying to compress these weekly updates, so hold on to your hats 😉

This weeks song “Boarding Call” is up on my website and available to download from Bandcamp. Thank you for all your messages, this one seem to have hit home. Check it out here:

Boarding Call

Vloggers problem, running out of hard rive space. But watch out before you trust the salesman…

Don’t get fooled by a salesman

We had some of our friends over from the States, and they came to see Liberty Hell in The Porterhouse:

It was a rainy day, we tried to make the best of it… Oh yeah, and check out what my girlfriend found while looking for a bag:

The Central Band of Ireland has gone for sale, here’s what I think we should do with the building:

Central Bank of Ireland is for sale, what should we do with it?

In the usual Friday fashion, I talk about this weeks song, but I also take you to the Merrion Square:

Vlog number 300!!! This really does feel surreal. Here is what I learned from the experience:

What I learned from posting 300 vlogs

And that wraps up the week. Just the usual bit of house keeping, before I let you go. If you enjoy what I do and want to support me, please consider supporting my Patreon campaign. Patreon is a great platform that connects the makers of the art with their audience directly. And by supporting your favourite artists directly, you make sure the artist can keep on making art in the artists terms, not some rules set out by record label big shots, or book publishers to make the art bland enough to try to please every one, but in the end not really fulfilling anyone. If you want to be part of my support system, check out my Patreon page HERE.

And lest not for get that we have some serious travel vlogs on the way next week 🙂 Stay tuned, and thanks for watching, reading, sharing and subscribing!

Central Bank of Ireland is for sale, what should we do with it?

Vlog 298 Central Bank of Ireland is for sale, what should we do with it?

The landmark building in the centre of Dublin city is for sale with an estimated price tag of €65million. This prime (although maybe not the prettiest) property right on the Dame street will be turning into something completely different. But here is what I think Ireland should do with it. I think the Irish government should negotiate a deal with the Bank of Ireland to trade the old Irish house of parliament for it. Bank of Ireland could set a shop in the old central bank, and the Irish people would get back their old house of parliament. It could be a real central library that would be run properly for the people of the city. What do you think?

Lovely soft Irish day | Dublin

Vlog 297 Lovely soft Irish day | Dublin

I had some great plans for the weekend, which involved a lot of outdoor activity, but the “extremely reliable” Irish weather decided otherwise. So apart from some shopping, most of the day was spent in front of the computer editing videos. But I did bring you along to the Porterhouse for the Sliotar Saturday set, and included an extra dose of wet cobblestone street scenery 😉 Hope you enjoyed the lovely soft Irish day.

Vlog 296 Liberty Hell and Georgia Tech fans | Dublin

The weekend gone we had the Georgia Tech v Boston College game here in Dublin. This has been going on for few years now and we always look forward to their visit. The Georgia Tech fans made their way into the Porterhouse, and we had a crazy night with Liberty Hell!
