Edel Murphy / The Greatest Story Ever Cast
« on: September 20, 2020, 02:58:36 PM »
You can rent any of the Reboot Live shows from The Lock Inn now.

Edel Murphy was in The Great Story Ever Cast:
https://vimeo.com/ondemand/thegreatstoryevercast

Mary is about to audition for the role of a lifetime, but she must first impress the formidable casting director, BB who knows what she wants and will not suffer fools. Mary must convince BB to see past her nervous exterior and recognise her talent and ability..

It's a short 21 minute play of fiction about Edel's character, Mary, trying out for the starring role in "the greatest story ever told." She's got her sights set high, but is she right for the role? Lol. It's up to a casting director nicknamed BB (
Beelzebub) to decide. I found it reasonably entertaining. It's a comedy, but like many things these days, there is a possibility the content could offend some people. The lighting and camera framing were pretty rudimentary. The writing was kind of clever. It was a treat to see Edel act and she even sings a little.

Deirdre Shannon / Deirdre (with Matt from The Celtic Tenors) (online)
« on: August 29, 2020, 05:12:43 PM »
On August 29, Matthew from The Celtic Tenors and Deirdre Shannon (with Brian McGrane and Sean Gilsenan on piano).

The show was live from Killua Castle, Ireland. The backdrop and lighting within the castle looked amazing, but unfortunately, the stream quality was absolutely horrendous.

I've had a LOT of bad quality experiences on StageIt. Some are problems at the source (bandwidth, Wi-Fi quality, Internet quality, etc). But in many cases, performers say their signal seems to be getting out, but StageIt just isn't getting it to viewers.

This is the worst StageIt quality I've seen since that time StageIt let Mairead Nesbitt do her whole show thinking it was getting to us when it wasn't.

This is not an issue on my side. Multiple browsers affected. Multiple devices affected. Almost everyone in the stream was complaining of issues. I watched a bunch of streams today and only had brutal issues with this StageIt show. Refreshing the page sometimes helped for a few seconds, then the picture and/or audio froze again.

I didn't hear / see more than 20% of any song in this show and had to refresh several times a minute just to get anything at all.

As bad as StageIt is, I think their network connection at the source was at least part of the problem tonight. The HD stream was too much data for the network to keep up with or it kept dropping the signal. Whatever the reason, it seemed like signal starvation was happening for most of the show.

The Byrne & Kelly stream I watched shortly after Dierdre's stream was WAY better stream quality. No choppiness or freezing at all.

I attached some screenshots of when there was actually picture on the screen, since there wasn't much else to do.

It did get a little better towards the end of the show, but overall, unacceptable level of quality.

Other Musicians / Lindsey Stirling: Favorite Videos
« on: August 24, 2020, 10:35:20 PM »
What are some of your favorite Lindsey Stirling music videos?

Here are some of mine:

Phantom of the Opera:

Between Twilight:

Roundtable Rival:
https://youtu.be/jvipPYFebWc

Les Miserables (although I would have preferred a bigger ending):
https://youtu.be/E5TsA6CHpII

Beauty and the Beast is cool! It's basically her getting ready for a show in the most creative way possible:

Back on February 9th, 2020 (I cringe as I type the year now), the Riverdance 25th Anniversary Show got filmed.

It was supposed to be released in selected cinemas and it still might at some point, I suppose.

But it looks like it's going to air on PBS in the meantime.

My station is airing it starting this week.

I'm not sure if Edel Murphy is in the recorded version or not (she was to be part of the touring version in the UK). She's not in the credits on IMDB, but then again, neither is Tara Howley (pipes + whistles) and I thought she as in the recorded version.

I guess I'll find out when I watch it this week and report back.

calendar / 2020-08-28 - Lisa Lambe: Concert4Cancer (on Virgin One)
« on: August 18, 2020, 06:04:12 PM »
Lisa Lambe is part of the online Concert4Cancer for the Marie Keating Foundation on Virgin Media One.

Friday, August 28, 2020

According to the site above:
The show will be available on-demand on the Virgin Player for 30 days after, so plenty of time to relive the action or catch-up if you missed out.

As far as I know Virgin One is not (legitimately) available outside of Ireland, except for service subscribers.

Mairead's been working on a show called "Rock Me Amadeus."

It features several cast members of Rocktopia, including Chloe Lowery, Dee Sneider, Tony Bruno, and of course, Mairead.

A few weeks ago Máiréad added the ability to become one of her "supporters" on Facebook. It's basically a monthly subscription: an opportunity to support her on a regular basis. It gives you access to a private Facebook group where you can be the first to hear exciting news and see exclusive content.

Click on the "Become a Supporter" button on her Facebook page!
