A wonderful weekend of sport is in prospect. Saint Pats play Dundalk in the FAI Cup on Saturday. The good and the great in Spain tie up their boots and commence battle in La Liga. And finally we have Dublin playing Mayo in the All-Ireland semi final. Let the games begin.

Finally, went to see A Scanner Darkly the other night. In terms of fidelity to the book for the most part yes it remains faithful, though there are certain parts of the novel which are just disregarded. The animation process (interpolated rotoscoping) which allows the animators to paint over the actors digitally recorded performances, is at first disconcerting if not annoying, but after a while taken for granted. Indeed interpolated rotoscoping incorporates itself well in a storyline which deals with reality, identity and perception.
