Our generation's moving statue equivalent. I still can't decide which one was more embarrassing. 
Oh, hold on, I can. This, by a long way.

There ya go. Much like the Brooks fiasco will prove to be in 30 years time, it makes for painful reading these days.  Also; watch Reeling In The Years 1985. 



The reason Brooks is worse; back in the mid 80's, we were still a country in the grip of the church, there was mass unemployment, the government seemed to change on a weekly basis, with no appreciable difference to anyone in the real world, and into the breach of the entire misery of the place stepped (pun intended) this statue thing , which gripped the country.  Maybe, in a way, the fcuking place was so miserable, a bit of (albeit religious inspired) escapism didn't really do too many people any harm in the end. 

There just isn't an excuse for Brooks, an entire nation of one of Europe's best educated countries (supposedly anyway; I have always had grave doubts since)  decided the single most important issue of our time (for about a month) was not world peace, NAMA, mortgage crises, the liquidity or otherwise of the banks,  but some middle of the road Yank singer who wasn't allowed put on an extra 15 concerts or whatever, and everyone, including Brooks, threw their toys out of the pram. 

The only other comparison I can make (and I think I did, somewhere in the 90 pages) is the UK's Princess Diana when she died. You might gather, I'm not really a fan of hysteria, particularly the mass public versions of same.

This. Plenty of people walking around with degrees coming out of their ears but the same people can't cross the road.

One of the girls in college called into me one day on the way to lectures. I had the RTE news on while I was getting ready.

She goes "You're watching the news?!"

I looked at her and didn't know what to say.

She graduated with a 1:1 distinction and is now a teacher.

Can't see anything wrong with it unless I'm missing something as well

I think he's alluding to himself clearly watching the news yet this brain box still asked was he watching the news.

Actor Maclean Burke, best known asFair City's Damien, is playing Garth Brooks in Fiona Looney's new play,Are you there, Garth? It's me, Margaret at Dublin's Gaiety Theatre this autumn.

Looney's comedy looks at the fiasco of Brooks' planned concerts in Croke Park last summer and makes light of all the drama that unfolded.

Speaking to TEN about starring in the show, Burke said he is looking forward to "getting the crowds going" and hopes they will have a sing-song.

Reflecting on the entertainment story that gripped the nation last summer, he said: "I think it was everyone's guilty pleasure, as everyone wanted to see what was going to happen next."

The show also stars Deirdre O'Kane as the country music-obsessed Margaret.

Asked if the play might lead to Brooks playing the five cancelled concerts in the future, Burke joked: "We'll see - maybe he'll come to the show."
