Christmas Tree Cupcakes

Vanilla cupcakes with bourbon vanilla buttercream icing, hand-piped white chocolate shapes, chewable (as opposed to the the old school filling-rending) decorative silver balls and Dr. Oetker writing icing tinsel.

Lovesick_20110928_Flirt_Birthday by Paula Healy on Mixcloud


Can you believe it? Flirt FM is 16 years old as of September the 28th. To mark this super-sweet 16 I played an hour of tracks exclusively from the year it all began, yup 1995. I brazenly ignored requests for Gangster's Paradise and Rhythm of the Night and went with the stuff that was a staple of the station.

Flirt FM Basic Info Flyer


This flyer was designed as an introduction to Flirt FM, Galway's Student Radio Station to be used at open days etc. Produced in a print run of 5,000 it was crucial that the information on the flyer date as little as possible. The schedule did not include any specifics and the contact info was limited to the general station e-mail address.

Printed on doucle-sided 250 gsm glossy A6 card, they are still in use 3 years later. Bird graphic purchased from iStock, all other artwork original.

The front image was also scaled up for a pop-up banner...

Spotify Playlist: RA Top 100 Albums 2000-2009

I've recently got hooked on Spotify, (having just streamed every track on my Lovesick summer special from the service) thanks to the recommendation of a friend. This friend happens to be from Norway, close to the origins of the music service in Sweden. It's delightful to use and if Ireland gets on board it'll be nothing short of marvellous. To thieve from Wikipedia...

Spotify is a Swedish DRM-based music streaming service offering streaming of selected music from a range of major and independentrecord labels, including Sony, EMI, Warner Music Group, and Universal.[3][4] Launched in October 2008 by Swedish startup "Spotify AB", the service had approximately ten million users as of 15 September 2010;[5] about 1,000,000 of which were paying members.[6] The service is, as of May 2011, only available in Finland, France, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, and the UK.

Thank heavens for my British bank account. Anyway, I've published my first mammoth playlist based on the Resident Advisor Poll: Top 100 albums of the '00s. I hadn't heard of half the artists and thought it'd be mad decent to put together a playlist for folks like me. It's missing one track, by Shed, despite my best efforts, and there are a few substitutions by artists where nothing from the album was available. If you have Spotify, feel free to click here and catch up on a helluva-lot of recent electronic music, like I did this afternoon.
