All the leaves are brown... and the sky certainly is grey here in Dublin today! But it seems like not all Beasties are reaching for their hats and scarves, or bedding down on the sofa to rewatch "The Muppet Christmas Carol". Not Paddy and Plunkett, anyway... They're still on holiday in Lanzarote! Today, their wandering … Continue reading Paddy and Plunkett Rock Out!
Loyal Beastie spotters will already have seen this picture on our Instagram yesterday, but in case you missed it here's a clue to the identity of the new Beastie you'll be meeting today... https://www.instagram.com/p/BHt3-Y0BagM/?taken-by=crawcraftsbeasties And here's how he turned out - meet David Bowie Beastie!

My first encounter with The Cure didn't go so well. It was 1990, they'd just released the remixed version of "Close to Me", and the video for the song was played over the closing credits of Top of the Pops that week. And it FREAKED ME OUT. The wobbly camera work, the whole band trapped … Continue reading Beasties Don’t Cry…
Another postcard from Explorer Beastie this morning! It turns out he's quite the amateur geologist, and he's been spending a few days checking out all the exciting stuff his destination has to offer. In the main picture, he's peering into the caldera of an extinct volcano. There seem to be plenty of those around! He's … Continue reading Explorer Beastie Rocks!
