Hollywood Hayes – Eviction

I blame the building manager. Let’s

Hollywood Hayes – Sweating

“Mark, can you stop sweating?” Sorry. “You need to stop. It’s showing on camera.” It’s not on purpose. “OK, we’re done here.” Pardon? “Get out.” Auditions are some laugh. In my defence, it was 100 degrees with about 98% humidity. LA is a cauldron. Same again yesterday. Needed to take a photo for this column.

Hollywood Hayes – AirBNB

Sorry, I can’t make it tonight, bit of a crack whore situation going on in my kitchen. Hollywood’s some laugh. Let me explain. So my roommate is in London for a few months for work.

Never Going Back Again – Fleetwood Mac Thanks to all my Apple products (and their horrendous battery life) I always feel so connected (to the wall). As a result, like my hopes and dreams, my phone almost always dies the minute I leave my house. iPhone. Battery. Bad. Anyway, last night I managed to lock myself

Christmas Clown

Blue Christmas – Elvis I’m like a dog. Pavlov’s one. Conditioned to beg or eat or do something every time he heard a bell. Except my bell is Christmas. And I’m conditioned to have a laugh. I blame Ireland. Don’t think I’ve ever had a bad Christmas back in Ireland. From growing up as a

Not a fan of dates. Many reasons. Here are a few: So. It’s Christmas Eve babe and I’m not in the drunk tank. Yet. I am on a date though. Christmas. Eve. Babe. What else would you be doing. Eve, the girl I’m on a date with, is looking unreal. Savage dress. Best I’ve seen. Special

I Want To Be The Best

http://www.independent.ie/opinion/your-voice/first-person-mark-hayes-i-want-to-be-the-best-30457187.html When I was a young wee lad making my way in the real capital of Ireland, Cork, boy, I had little to no clue what I wanted to be when I grew up.
