When Aunt Irma visits the IT Crowd office it can only mean hilarious consequences for all involved. Even Roy and Moss suffer from menstrual cycle symptoms and grow irritable, delicate and emotional. Not to mention the breast tenderness..

It all blows up when Moss emails everyone he knows in the IT world asking, “Do we have PMT?” describing the symptoms in detail. Riots are the result and a website, ladyproblems.com is created!

The producers of the show did actually register that domain, but it’s a shame they didn’t do anything with it. Even putting up a landing page with that image above on it would have been better. At least Warner tried a bit harder with “2 and a Half Men”, charlieharpersucks.com actually exists! Oh well.

Watch this episode on Youtube: part 1, part 2, part 3. (Watch the previous episode too, The Haunting of Bill Crouse. That was so funny I almost hurt myself laughing..)

On to series 2 of The IT Crowd, I hope there’ll be a third one!

Facebook advertising on a shoestring

You’ve got an interesting project to advertise but your advertising budget is, nil, nada, nothing. An empty box of air is worth more than you can spend on getting the word out.

That’s sort of what Frank said when he asked me (and I presume a number of his friends, the Facebook email is generic) to help get the word out about the new play in the Granary Theatre, They Never Froze Walt Disney.

I was wondering if you would help me out with an experiment… you may have noticed I am trying to get the word out about ‘They Never Froze Walt Disney’ – and I would love your help!

Would you mind changing your status on Facebook to read:

<your name> is letting people know about They Never Froze Walt Disney. See theatremakers. net for more details!

Always eager to help friends if I can, I updated my Facebook status. Will it help? Does anyone look at my profile? I doubt it, but it can’t hurt.

The latest teaser trailer is really, err, strange. Can’t we see a bit more please? TBH, it looks depressing!

Here’s what Frank said before the original production last year in the summer:

Funny and poignant, dark and yet light hearted, the writing is really tight and the story unfolds beautifully. Also the two performers (Jody O’Neill and John McCarthy) are excellent actors, and though I personally haven’t seen Jack Healy direct before he is extremely well known in the Cork theatre scene, and I have a lot of respect for him from acting with him and attending his workshops.

Check out my photos from one of Frank’s previous shows, The Importance of Being Earnest. We really enjoyed that show, but getting out to the theatre is a little harder to do these days with a small baby around!
