THE year is 2050 and civilisation has been vapourised in a nuclear holocaust. It was probably sparked by Donald Trump tweeting something a bit mean about Vladimir Putin’s latest topless calendar poses. Survivors roam the Earth looking for others to pillage and plunder. Sound like the scenario found in the Mad Max films? That’s what I was going for, I’m a fan. But there’s one thing those movies got wrong. In Mad Max, the warlords cobble together outlandish cars and motorbikes from scavenged scrap metal. No. When the world collapses there will be one car you can buy today which will still be going strong — the Toyota Land Cruiser. If I was one of those oddballs who prepare for the end of the world, this is the car I would buy now. It’s bulletproof — hard as titanium nails forged in the fires of Mount Doom, tougher than a cockroach that does karate. In Africa, South America, the Middle East and rural Australia Land Cruisers are more common than … [Read more...] about Toyota Land Cruiser is bulletproof and has a ‘multi-terrain’ system including a ‘sand mode’ — and it’s the perfect post-apocalyptic car

This romanticism isn't just confined to her career; it's evident in her home, too; she built a fairy-tale house, surrounding it with a waterfall and a babbling stream. And it permeates her work life; even though she has a high-flying, pressure-filled job in UCC, she uses every spare minute to immerse herself in the theatre and film world - her new love. But of course, as well as the romance, there's a steel edge and a fierce intelligence; she wouldn't have the position of associate vice president/director of European relations and public affairs if she didn't have the chops for it, nor would she have her PhD in microbiology and food chemistry, which is what this elegant Cork woman went on to specialise in, after first doing a science degree. Science was, in fact, her second choice of degree. "I thought of medicine first, but I missed it by two points in the Leaving Cert. I repeated the Leaving Cert and did get four points more, but the points needed had gone up. I was happy to do … [Read more...] about Law and order: Peek inside this elegant detached country home
For many, Casablanca is not just any old movie but the old movie. When Woody Allen was looking for a heroic exemplar for his nebbish cineaste in Play it Again, Sam, it was to Bogart’s Rick Blaine that he turned. When Nora Ephron wanted to illustrate the practicality of women in When Harry Met Sally, it was Bergman’s example she held up (“I don’t want to spend the rest of my life in Casablanca married to a man who owns a bar”). The source of endless spin-offs, parodies and skits, from the Marx Brothers’ A Night in Casablanca to Saturday Night Live, Casablanca is the movie we go to when we want to invoke movieishness itself, the dream factory at full tilt, a heroic foil to our mock-heroic age. As Umberto Eco put it in Casablanca: Cult Movies and Intertextual Collage, “It is movies”. This cultural ubiquity has entailed a certain sniffiness from critics, whose estimation has tended to chime with the Warner Brothers script reader who first … [Read more...] about ConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlight Playing it over and over again: how Casablanca was made Pungent as Old Spice and smooth as cheap nylon: the BBC’s Law and Order 40 years on
