My Dublin: Peter Glam Odell

Tv presenter/waiter (he says)

Inspired by Alan Hughes in The Dubliner Peter wants to tell everyone about 'my Dublin' although he knows very little about it.

Outdoors- I like to go to Ivy Gardens and look at all the magpies. Sometimes I sit on the steps and have my picture taken (by Bird.)



Restaurants I like Soho restaurant on Georges Street as they do good things. Also The Front Lounge has a cheap and delicious lunch menu - chicken quesadilla for six euro and it's FIT.

Food I like to eat the triple pack of cheese pizza from Lidl and then add my own toppings like fresh garlic and basil and chilli flakes. yum.

Shopping I like to go to the Tower records but I don't really go shopping.

Dublin Ups It's very quiet and there are cute places to walk and they like to do Christmas lights.

And Downs The buses are terrifying, once there was someone smoking crack.

Area around South William street and Fade Street and Wiclow street, all the little shoppers.

Dublin Heroes Rory with the story on Spin 1038 but if Dolly Parton lived in Dublin it'd be her.

And Villians The Scaries. They are mainly youths in tracksuits and I can't understand what they say. Also the people who drive horse drawn carriages are scary.

Hobbies I like to be a lazybones and hibernate but I also like to go on adventures and make things up and canoodle.

My best trait My love of kittens.


Work I start at usually 6 o clock and ask people what drinks they want to drink. When they ask me where I'm from I put on a thick southern accent and tell them I'm from Nashville. I feel like Sookie Stackhouse.

Press I just picked up the Dubliner today, it was pretty good and I like to read the other magazines.

Music Mostly Belle and Sebastian at the moment. Still.

TV and Radio On the tellybox I watch.. well i'm not fussy really. If I listen to the radio I LISTEN TO SPIN!

Theatre I don't go to the theatre unless someone does Pet Shop Boys The Musical.


You can catch Peter at the Frontlounge every weeknight pratically and almost every weekend night as well.

Glam in the City

Here's some pics I took of Peter Glam on his first week in Dublin, it was a very pissy day and we wandered around Temple Bar looking for shelter. We found an exhibition in the Dublin Photography place in Meeting House Square, it was the shittest selection of pictures all in once place which we nicknamed 'chavs in inclimate weather' - with that in mind here is a Glam chav in very inclimate weather..

Quick Update

We've been pretty lazybones lately and have no geniune excuses to over apart from being... lazy. But there's good new afoot at Peter Glam has now joined me and James in Dublin. Here's photographic evidence.

He is having some couch time on a very rainy day and watching Four Weddings and a Funeral for what may be the first time (he's not quite sure.) Three GIANT army tanks just went by down George's Street but we couldn't find a camera in time so you'll have to take our word for it.

Spooning

James Alert and I had a quick tea and treats (while he was on a break from a photoshoot with David LaChapelle!!) and this happy spoon popped up to say 'howdy do.' He's even curvy so he'll sit on the side of the cup and not slip in for a swim.



James Alert was delighted with his new friend - off he popped to finish up his photoshoot with Mr LaChapelle with a new spring in his step.

SODA-STREAM VS THE BOTTLE







SO there i was sitting in Subway with my friend Anthony (pictured) sippin' on my soda-stream LOVING it... more so than a BOTTLE of coke. But why? We discussed why it is so lovely and sweet so we asked the Subway guy why its so lovely and he told us something that would change our drinking habits...forever. He told us how its made within the machine. The delicious coke syrup SHOOTS up a tube and PLUNGES back down to MIX with FRESH water which in turn gets BLASTED buy CO2 to come GUSHING down into your ICED cup...to bring you a climatic refreshing tear inducing experience. FRESH right on the spot. And also, its EXTRA nice when you get to press the machine yourself rather than the guy behind the counter.



GULP.

ENERGY BOOST




So. I asked my friend Rachel (pictured) to try out the new energy boost shots you can find at all the tills in garages and tescos these days. I wanted to see what the hype was and if a shot would give you an insane burst of energy.

VERDICT

Rachel:
okokok so i took it earlier, no immediate effect...yawned a bit, bit schleepy.
it is almost 3pm now and im WIDE awake...my body is tired but my brain is in overdrive,
overrall rating: 7/10
(cuz im not running around in circles and havin bantz which i thought i would)

So there you have it. If you want to run around having bantz DO NOT TAKE but if you want a quick pick me up, do it.

The Shitness of being a Modern Man

Though I'm guilty of buying a glutonous amount of magazines I always find the pokey-fingered instructions on how we all should live funny at best and sinister at worst (Sunday Times Style mag is the worst offender.) This month's Esquire has a whole lot on how to live just like an Esquire Journalist. It's entitled..


"Esquire's Manual For a Stylish Life"





Here are some of the more ridiculous headings -


10 items everyman should own before he dies. (eeek i don't have em, I'm no man!)

10 items that have NO place in the wardrobe of a respectable man.

How to .. greet the Queen.

How to.. google efficiently.

How to ... start a bank.

How to feign interest.

How to not get drunk.

How to ogle without getting caught.

How to pull a supermodel.

How to take a punch.

How to calm a crying baby.

How to be funny.

How to do private jetiquette

How to get rid of your dinner guests.

How to tame a lion.

How to bounce back.

How to devlier puppies.



A summary of the deep rooted concerns of 21st century man.

Scary bricks and glittery paint

I was having a good old spy on the people walking on the street below my flat when I noticed just how sinister the building opposite it... (Cue Exorcist music!).. (or that Psycho theme, whatever you preference.)







Also I did this picture of Mr Glam recently. I hope it's not as scary as the building. He has half a golden face in real life too.

Exploiting the wall

I found a cheapo book with lots of explotation film posters inside. I cut 'em up and stuck them all over the wall. It's amazing some of these were ever made.. amazing and intriguing. On one poster for 'She-Wolf of the SS' it says in the blurb "I turned my lovers into lampshades!" She's a wild one that she-wolf.
