Send some love to Liberty Hall

I love Liberty Hall on the Dublin sky line and I've always seen it as a legacy building even if SIPTU are going to knock it down.

As part of Ulster Bank Dublin Theatre Festival, from the 24th of September until the 11th of October 2009, Playhouse will transform the iconic Liberty Hall building in Dublin’s city centre into a 50 metre, low resolution, TV screen.

Members of the public are invited to create animations with sound and music, via their website, and broadcast them across the city’s skyline.

It's nice to see it being put to artistic use and it might encourage people to appreciate the building more while it's still there while at the same time having a bit of fun.

John Hughes RIP

John Hughes died yesterday at 59 years old.
I'm a big fan of his films, especially The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, Ferris Bueiller, and Planes Trains and Automobiles.
She's Having A Baby is a particular favourite. It's not one of his better known films but it's worth checking out for all the cameos - Kevin Bacon hails a cab and the cabbie is Steve Martin! I love it's classic sob-fest sequence near the end where the baby is being born and Kate Bush's track This Woman's Work is playing underneath.

Here's a little montage of some of his films.
