Rainy days

Hello shiny people, someone might think that with my new position at work I now have more spare time... the fact that I'm here writing stuff on a weblog might demonstrate that in fact I have... but I can assure you, right now I'm very busy, hmmmm, very busy. So busy... Well, a part from what has been going hone during the past weeks (me getting higher, in both ways, and Mrs Sushi getting greater) there isn't much to highlight from the capital of the rain, in fact it rains, while I'm typing it rains and during the weekend will rain, so happy rainy day everyone.... wherever you are!

Echoes from Munich

Winter is upon us! I recently heard from my all-time-friend Dean, based in Munich, many very interesting things about Enik... Enik is an artist who will, if it goes as planned, be quiet known. He has already put out an E.P. "Moon Addicted" published by !K7, an austrian label oriented towards D&B, house, a very good label... I would reccomend also to check out works from Kruder&Dorfmeister and their side projects (e.g. Tosca). Well after the first sight to Enik's style I can certainly smell a good atmosphere, good vibes, new ideas... I personally love the idea of pioneering new roads, Enik does it, and quiet well. Mentioning Dean's words: "If he can't make it, nobody can" Best of Luck Enik! Edward

Un Pez Globo

Hi folks, here back to work after a wonderful holiday in Italy. Mr & Mrs Sushi have been going around Mr's Sushi home town: Jesolo. But we have been walking through Venice, Burano and The Alps. I have a big bruce that I got up to 2800 mt. yuhuu. But the bad news at least for me is that today I look like this fella here My colleague Christina told me that I also look like a hamster, you know, when they put all their food on one of their cheeks. And all of that is due to a superevildentistthatihateandwannakill removed my wisdom teeth and the fist day I was ok but since yesterday my face has begun to grow just on the right side. And they put me stiches, I counted 8, ays, poor myself. And Mr. Sushi had cought a flu. So what a pair. We will keep you informed. Stay tuned. Mrs. Evil Hamster Face Sushi

Sushi B-day almost finished

Hey ladies!!! That's one of the songs of my now favourite DVD that I got for my B-day. I have to thank one thousand times to Ciclodi and some other Apples for this great present. And it's even better because I also got a Sushi Machine so I can put all my library there, wohoooo!!! I have to say that Mr. Sushi has a more than excellent taste buying presents. ^_^ The party was very busy, I'd say. There were too many people in my minisushi house, but it was very funny. My flatmate Mr. Iannizzotto couldn't believe it, hehe, usually we're two at home and suddenly the population doubled... I also want to call for worldwide help because my dear Euro Trash Kid and his friend Fabio gave me a present, a wonderful ginger cookie with bikini, that has been stolen!!!! Please, help me on that, call Colombo, 007 whoever you know, but I need my cookie back!!!!! Well, I also have many other super beautiful presents but I don't wanna see you crying. Finally, to finish the celebrations of my 28th birthday, The Sushi Team and many fellas are going this weekend to Electric Picnic, where we are going to listen many suppaduppa bands that I'm not gonna get into details, otherwise you'll be crying for another whole week, you poor non electric picnic people.

Story Telling

Hi Folks, on Friday my friend-colleague Raúl told me about a little store that sells used dvd's for 6 euros, and Mr. and Mrs. Sushi said: "Let's give it a try". Before we went for a hop, skip and a jump. You should ask, what?. Well, it's just a juice of orange, carrot and apple, of course. Rico, rico. So after this healthy stuff, we adventured ourselfes on the Merchant's Quay Shopping Center, aaaaaaah. We got to the second floor and looked around for this Game shop. Finally we found it!! And what happened, well two dvd's happened... The first one I saw was Story Telling. What can í say, Todd Solondz, directing, Belle & Sebastian playing. After seeing his previous film Happiness that I love so much, I just couldn't miss this one. And as expected, I like it too. You have to see it, trouble teenagers, hehe, children that ijustwannakilljesuschristifigethimismashhim... So that was my choice. Mr. Sushi's decided for a classic English gangster film with the greatest Michael Caine, Get Carter. We tried to see it yesterday but it was too late, so...we'll try tomorrow. Because today, we are all very nervous with the double session of Lost. Take care and mind the polar bears, Mrs. Scared Sushi

This can't be Ireland... but it is!!

Oh Bloggers where are thou?

Long time has passed since the last post, well I believe that the reason for this has a name: Job. ...and I don't even feel like spending more words about it. Seeing this poor page unedited as it is, it made me feel sad, so taking the chance that the italians are leaving for their summer holidays, I take a breathe and tell you somethings which came to my attention lately. the first is a sad news for me: Bob Moog, the person who someone might consider as the father of the synthesizer was diagnosed with a brain tumor. He invented some of the finest music synthesizers ever and always worked as pioneer on the eletronic music. Sushi for 2 would like to rember the legendary Bob with his Minimoog. Heard anything of the Fantastic 4? They recently got out of the comic pages and started an adventure on the cinema screen... the result is quiet of film, unmissable if you ever read their adventures.... it out

Back to the cold

Hey everybody, we're back, well, we arrived one week ago. But it was such a shock that we could not post or sleep or anything. I'll tell you, we left Spain two Sundays ago with a sweeeet temperature. When we hit Cork Airport the temperature was 9 f****** Celsius degrees. So now on we're Mr. and Mrs. Frozen Sushi. But as many of you don't know the beautiful Galicia, I will show you some of their wonderful landscapes (just to tease you, you know, Mrs. Evil Frozen Sushi's back). So... The Sushi's and Dad in "La Playa de las Catedrales", one of the most amazing spots in Galicia (Please, notice our incredible bodies, due to the amazing galician food). We did so many things: We had dinner: We went by boat: And basically we had fun: In the pic, one of the most classy places in town, Ferrol, of course. So that's it for now, if you want to have all the pics to see how great is Galicia, just ask. By the way last week it was so sunny here that we are all burnt, for more evidences please visit our dear friend Euro Trash Kid in a couple of days, I hope he will update the blog by then. Take care, Mrs. Tanned Frozen Sushi

We are alive...and getting tanned

Hey lads, here we are. Sorry for the delay but as you can imagine we are too busy here going to the beach every day and going out every night, hehe, mrs. evil sushi strikes back you poor non-holiday guys... We are working on the postcards, because due to intense business we are not able to post some pics and make you too jelaous. We are not missing Ireland at all, but we miss you. So do not worry one day we will be back. Meanwhile we are tasting some of the tipical galician products... Warm Regards The Sushi's aka El Bradipo+Minimari

Get up, it's time to go!!!

We have been waiting for long long time but now it's time to get into the cockpit and fly to Galicia! We'll be leaving Cork city airport on saturday night, leaving behind work and rain and hope to land on Gallician ground finding the opposite. I'd like also to apologize if you didn't heard much from sushi's lately but we've been (I hate to say it) stressed, but we'll remedy with some posts from "the end of earth" as the old roman used to call where we're going. Now, considering that Galicia's reputation on food is quiet of a wonder... I'd like to hear from you some advices in order to not become the dinner of these kind of sea monsters ...but make them my dinner... See you in Spain!

Sonic Film

Good morning lads, Monday morning, what else can I say. Here at the office is kind of quiet. I was having a look at the news about the Cannes Film Festival and what I have found? Gus van Sant has a new film, Last Days, which it sounds even more interesting when you realize that one of the main characters is our beloved Kim Gordon. We were so happy to see her every day in the news but now she is on the big screen!! So let's see when the movie is released for common people, but I'm looking forward to watch it. Another important new is that Atom Egoyan has presented his new film too. Where the truth lies, another must-see-it. Well, and that is enough for a Monday morning. Take care, Mrs. Sushi

Wasting money

Hi lads, lately, it seems this is the only thing we do. Jeez, this has been the spending money weekend. Basically, we bought food as good spanish-italian people. But on Saturday, due to Verónica's birthday party we had to buy a little present of course. So walking around the city centre I decide to go for a purse, so I went to PrimeTime as they always have these cool handbags I like. But that was only Saturday. Sunday noon Plan: 1. I have a wedding (yes, one of my friends have decided to do this crazy thing in Summer, oh well). So if you have a wedding you need a dress or similar. So I went looking for something not very elegant, not very expensive...And I finished where I didn't want to finsih 2. Mr. Sushi needs a new pair of trousers since the bbq incident. Mr. Sushi's issue was really easy, I just needed two minutes to find a pair of trousers. Mr. Sushi liked them and that's all. Oh, and I almost forgot Friday. Well, on Friday, sunny day, got off job at 4, so what better to do than going to where Sushi for two can spend a fortune in five minutes... So what I got? Three little pieces of art: Breaking the Waves, Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer and The Man Who Fell to the Earth Take it easy, Mrs. Sushi Shopping

Another party? uff

Dear friends, after a long time of laziness, Sushi for two strikes back. And as we usually do, we are going to another house warming party. This is one of the problems of having such a very busy social schedule, hehe. So this time is the turn to Camilla and Sebastian. And that is an Italian girl and a Danish guy, isn't that weird? Oooh, such a sweet pic!! The party starts around 8ish for Spanish and Italians (yeah, we are famous for our punctuality) and around 9ish for Nordics. The rules, well, bring all the alcohol you can drink...and all the stuff you can... And thank god it's FRIDAY, finally, after a very busy week for Sushi. But be ready, because as most of you know, I moved, and what does it mean? Another house warming party uff. Take care, Mrs. Sushi

Strings on BBQ

As eastern is in Italy an occasion to stuff your belly with food, we decided to take the chance and open the BBQ season in great style. I reccomend to the vegetarians be careful with what's written on the following lines as all the salad which was bought, still lies in the fridge... Well, the afternoon started around 2:00 PM on Sunday, after the shocking experience of taking my watch 1 hour forward I realized that I had people outside the house waiting for coming in set the BBQ on flames, infact they gathered in the garden and conquested the brand new gazebo, got for the occasion. The afternoon started to rock with Diego "Gallego" Colombini DJing the BBQ, and you can certainly tell that there was feeling between the 2... Once we filled ourself with a meal which would had been enough for an army, we still managed to move and even attempting some football, as you can see on this picture, Sirguy kicking the beer and drinking the ball at the same time... what a talent... After some good body moving and a gorgeous cheeseburger the event mutated into a massive Jam session, between the players we can spot (in random order) Ennio "Flamming Rib", Camillo "Kaz the fly", Beppe "Wild Gimpsy", Sirguy "Plastic rim-shot", Cheecheo "Pasta-racas-man"... and I can remember myself being there too and others... well it was a beautiful afternoon for the 2 Sushi for 2. It even ended in marvollous way, everybody wrecked, happy, drunk/stoned and tired. Well thanks everyone for coming, I apologize if I didn't name everyone who was there, but you all are in Sushi for 2 Hall of Memories. Happy Eastern!

Qué Onda Guero

Ladies & Gents, tomorrow my beloved Beck Hansen is releasing his new cd. The new album is called Guero, that in México means either blonde or american (thanks to my dear partner Fernando for this privileged info). I hope Mr. Hansen is coming back to his origins and make us dance like maniacs. Because the last record, Sea of Change (that i didn't particularly like), was published three years ago, and it wasn't very...let's say funky. Anyway, there are two versions of the Guero, the normal one, songs and that's all. But there is a special edition that I think Mrs. Sushi completely deserves, and it is, of course, the DeLuxe edition. One cd, one dvd, special remixes by Boards of Canada, Royksopp and Dizzee Rascal. Besides a luxurious booklet, movies and stuff. So, please, if anyone reads Sushi for two, Ed & myself will gladly accept this little present. Take it easy it's just Monday, oh my dog!! María a.k.a. Mrs. Evil Sushi (just sometimes)

Snakebyte Paddy, aka Saint Patrick

Once upon a time, the green island was invaded by poisonous snakes, then St. Patrick came with all his christianity, and sent 'em away, still today this brave brave missionary is remebered by all the Irish celebrating his quest, on every March 17th. The news that I found out is that he is still alive, no kidding, and he likes to party hardy... Couldn't manage to offer him a pint as he is a busy man, but Eurotrash Kid managed to take a picture. There was also other kind of heroes, warriors, drunks, druggies... all gathered for this big celebration. It was so big that I realized only now (5 days after) that I was part of it and should be telling you how things went. The problem is that I don't really remember it, even because I had no batteries for my camera, but thanks to Eurotrash Kid, you can read what happened and see few more pics. It is anyway hard to tell the all story from my desk in Apple, so why not to visit EuroTrashStories and find a culture? Ed P.S. Thanks again to the Euro Trash Blog for providing pictures!

Tea at the Japanese Gardens

Hello all, while you're celebrating St. Patrick's Day, Ciclodi and myself have decided to go to the huge Golden Gate Park. There are a lot of things into the park, but my favourite as Mrs. Sushi are, of course, the Japanese Gardens. The gardens are just beautiful, we had a great time there. They're a present from the Japanese Goverment to the city of San Francisco. And they have budhas and pagodas, and this kind of ponds and waterfalls... Today the sun run away from the City, it was more kind of Irish weather, i guess it was in honor to St. Patrick. So as the day was a little bit chilly, we decided to have a cup of tea. We ordered green tea, and I have to say that it was awful, well it was disgusting. Do you know when you boiled vegetables that the water gets kind of green? Ok, so that was the tea we had, kind of green water, aj. Ok, guys so in a couple of days we'll be hiting Cork airport. Back to work I'm afraid, but I don't want to think about it at the moment. So enjoy the weekend if you're still alive after the big party... Take care, María P.D.: Mr. Sushi, I've already taken about 400 pics so please, book a full day to check them out.

The Pacific is cold

Yesterday I went to Fitzgerald Beach. Sunny day but chilly. But I did what i wanted. I tried the Pacific's water, and it's cold. I never thought that it could be colder than the Atlantic, as they have al theses sharks and dolphins and stuff, but oh well, maybe it was that cold because it was windy, don't know. Anyway, today we've been walking around all the time. Hill up hill down, I think I should rent a Mustang and go crazy like Steve McQueen in Bullit. But, no way, I have to climb all these hills by myself. So this is one of the most famous streets in San Francisco, Lombard St, and I climbed it, all the way up. I almost die but i did it!!! You won't do it twice in a day because Lombard St. is very long and it goes up all the time from North Beach. Everything is so big in The States... And of course, Sushi for two, well half of it, got there as all the Beat Generation but without hard drugs, hehe. And this picture is an evidence. In the next trip Sushi for two will be together to tell you how good is to go to the best place in the world, and that's it Galicia, of course. Take care, don't work too hard, María

Sin City

Hey everybody!! I'm back in San Francisco from a trip to Las Vegas, and I'm not broke!! I would rather call this city Dollar City because the main thing to do is to spend a fortune. So, let's start from the beginning. On Wednesday we arrived at the airport around noon. And what's the first thing you see at the airport? Slot machines!! Prepare your dollars ladies & gentlemen... So we took a taxi to our hotel, The Excalibur, oh my dog!! I just couldn't believe it, a medieval castle in the middle of the desert?! All the hotels here are designed to spend all day there, give us all your money, don't go any further! You have everything, casino, of course, restaurants, shops, cinema, swimming pool, spa, shows,... And anything else? Oh yes, more hotels, of all kinds, you can go around the world just walking (a lot by the way). What do you fancy? Egypt? Ok, so you have The Luxor, a piramyd, yes a piramyd. Actually, the building is really cool, my favourite. the decoration inside is...hehe very Egyptian. The best thing of this hotel is that it has an Imax cinema. Ciclodi and me went to see Sharks by Jean-Michel Cousteau, wow, cool, it's like you're diving with them. And they give you this idontknowhowtocallit glasses. And if you don't like Egypt, you have Venice, Paris even New York with Empire State included. But if you want to see more pics, first I want to see your comments, Mrs. Evil-Sushi rules!!!

C'mon It's time to surf!!!

Spring is working its way to Ireland, I can tell it by the smell of the air... With the good weather I switched into the surf mood, it feels very natural and so this Saturday I will hit Clonackilty Bay and hope to find some good swells. The weather is being quiet nice with us on these days, the sun is very weak though... as always in this country. If you want to take a look to what's the swell sitaution in our area you can log on the Cork's local surf shop's website, So, if you anyone is out wondering in the sun (hopefully) on Saturday, you know where to find me Peace, Ed

It all started from a tune

Hey people... did you know that Sushi for 2 is also a song... well it all begun from a song, so if you want to download it, click here Good day! Ed

It is not the Big Apple but..

Hello everybody, so here I am in The States, isn't that weird? I arrived here on Saturday after a long long flight. After recovering from the damn jet lag (I slept 14 hours) we went to visit the Pacific. Half Moon Bay, beautiful name, huh? There you go, Pacific waves (Mr. Sushi, that's for you) But today, we hit The City. We've been walking all day around Fisherman's Wharf. Basically it's the San Francisco's harbour, and you can see the non so famous Oakland's bridge. And what about the skyscrapers, oh yes, there are a lot, my neck is hurting now. You know, maybe it's that I'm used to the Old Europe, but it's so weird to see only new buildings, even the cathedrals are new. One of the most famous skyscrapers from San Francisco is the Piramyd. There you go. Oh oh, have you ever thought about having a magic carpet ride? Now you know where to go, San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf. Then a visit to the sea lions, I wanna be one of them, what a life...all day laying around, swimming and having sun baths. And Ed, I'm sorry but I found another bradipo, and he has a good spot, even more posh than Monte Notte!!! Well guys, it's time to sleep now, tomorrow shopping in The City, this is dangerous!!!
