Sky RojoNetflix 

The highly anticipated second season of its high-octane Spanish thriller series 'Sky Rojo' will premiere today (Friday).

Three ladies, Coral, Wendy, and Gina are on the run in a quest for freedom while being pursued by Romeo from Tenerife's Las Novias Club, and his henchmen, Moisés and Christian. The ladies embark on a hectic, chaotic trip together, in which they must confront several perils and experience each moment as if it were their last, all while developing their relationship.
Shifting away from the Spanish noir aesthetics of 'Money Heist', 'Sky Rojo' uses a brilliantly colourful, neon palette to combine numerous genres into “Latin Pulp”, as its creators Lex Pina and Esther Martnez have dubbed it. In another change, the pair have reduced the length of each of the season's eight episodes to a manageable 25 minutes.

 

The Sightless City
Author: Noah Lemelson

Kidnapping, enslavement and murder are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to actions some will take to protect their interests in æther-oil, the coveted substance that fuels the city of Huile.

As both veteran and private investigator, Marcel Talwar knows this first hand, and he likes to think he'd never participate in such things. However, that naïve idea comes to a crashing end when he takes on a new case that quickly shatters his world view.

A trail of evidence points to someone in Marcel's inner circle who's using him as a pawn to conduct grisly experiments that could lead to genocide.

Now, Marcel is more determined than ever to discover who's pulling the strings to this sinister plot. But the further he gets, the larger the target on his back becomes, and it's not long before Marcel has to ask himself how much and how many he's willing to sacrifice to get to the truth.
Meanwhile, Sylvaine Pelletier, a brilliant engineer who gave up everything in her quest to restore some of the world’s pre-apocalyptic splendor, discovers that Roache can supply her with the power she needs to manipulate sangleum, but at a high cost.

 

The Crayon Set
'Downer Disco'

Dublin-based band The Crayon Set release their third album 'Downer Disco' on September 24 this year. It is their strongest album to-date filled with their trademark expertly crafted pop songs and dual girl/boy vocal interplay - this time with added synth-pop and electronic goodness.
On July 16 the band released two songs as a free taster from the album.
In keeping with their crayon-colour philosophy, you get to choose your favourite release: the synth-pop sunshine-bliss of ‘Summer Song’ or the indie-rock swagger of ‘Rock Star // Dream Girl’. 

“We're really pleased with the songs and the sound on the album and we can't wait to release it," founder and main songwriter Robert Baker said. "The album has a happy-sad dynamic going on - we’re always trying to write and record the perfect pop song but lyrically the songs couldn’t help but reflect the increasingly stressed-out world we breathe in every day."

It’s not Christmas in Killarney without The Coronas making an appearance at the Gleneagle INEC Arena and they return for what has become an annual gig on December 28.

Following on from 18 months of an enforced break from live shows and dealing with an unfortunate band-name given the pandemic, they persevered and released their new album in August 2020.

‘True Love Waits’ was an instant success and secured the No. 1 spot in the Irish charts beating Taylor Swift and Fontaines DC. The album also became the fastest selling Irish album of 2020.

The three-piece band, Danny O’Reilly, Graham Knox, and Conor Egan from Dublin, have released five studio albums and are renowned as one of the best live Irish acts and have become an integral part of the Christmas line-up in the Gleneagle INEC Arena, Killarney.

Tickets from €35.50 for their Gleneagle INEC Arena gig went on sale on Thursday from www.inec.ie.

Man finds ancient shark teeth!

A hurricane left a parting gift for one beach walker – a 10cm long fossilized megalodon tooth. Millions of years-old and 21m in length with razor-sharp 17cm fangs, the prehistoric shark had the greatest biting power of any known animal to ever wander or swim the Earth, which was quite the spectacle in its time. “It’s something […]

A hurricane left a parting gift for one beach walker – a 10cm long fossilized megalodon tooth.

Millions of years-old and 21m in length with razor-sharp 17cm fangs, the prehistoric shark had the greatest biting power of any known animal to ever wander or swim the Earth, which was quite the spectacle in its time.

“It’s something so ancient,” Jacob Danner, who made the discovery, said. “You pick up something that’s millions of years old from a creature on the planet, and it takes you back to that childlike fascination of dinosaurs and all the mysteries that are only hinted at when we read about them.”

An avid collector and historian, Danner refers to himself more as a hobbyist than an expert. In his most fruitful venture, he said he once found 33 different shark teeth in a two-hour period. However, prior to this summer, he had never come across a megalodon tooth since moving to the coastal area last January.

But even more incredible than his megalodon find? It was his second such discovery in less than a month.
Just three weeks earlier, Danner had found his first-ever megalodon tooth, a long-awaited uncovering that he said almost made him feel guilty.

“The first one that I found, I think it was like June 17 or 18, I just froze and looked around like I was walking on the sidewalk and came across a $100 bill,” he said. “There’s part of it that’s a surprise and another part of it that feels guilty, not sure how to feel. I looked and was just holding it, turning it in my hands.”
