about out of sight

A site of original and unoriginal content meant to entertain and inform. Out of Sight is edited by JJ O'Donoghue and William Hilderbrandt.

more about out of sight

If this site had to be summed up in one word and a preceding parenthetical phrase, then it would be (hopefully) entertaining. Think of it as an archive of some of the most interesting articles, videos, photography, and miscellany that JJ and William find online.

Presently the two have hopes of expanding the site to include some of their own work, and when they do just watch the hilarity ensue.

In the meantime please leave comments on posts - whether you like or dislike - and make suggestions as to what you want to see more of. For some of you it's more tits and ass, for others you prefer men with beards, and for one of you (you know who I am talking about) it's all about jam.

one more thing on out of sight

Out of sight is Will and JJ's attempt to get noticed and invited on daytime TV or any Fox TV show. Before out of sight, there was rich and creamy, a hugely popular blog for spammers who wanted to sell us penis enhancing products. They were wasting their time.

But to stick to the augmentation analogy, out of sight at its best is a brain enhancing website. That's a radical statement guys.

What you'll find on the site is a ménage à trois of humour, skepticism, intelligence and titilation. We really enjoy comments and recommendations and we hope to build up a community of followers so that we then add a subscription wall and take on the Financial Times or Playboy. Or just get jobs with them.

who is this stud william?

William lives in Paris. At the start of 2009 he left London and all his friends and his bad job to come to France, where he hardly speaks the language, to be with his girlfriend. Officially he is very happy to finally be living with her but occasionally he does get nostalgic for London.

He grew up in the US - Oklahoma (please do not hum the musical!) - and studied philosophy before going to London for a Master's in journalism. His work has not been published by the best in the industry, such as The New York Times, The Atlantic Monthly, The Economist, Mother Jones, McSweeney's, and many, many more.

Currently he is freelancing at radio and TV gigs, slowly acquiring technical skills he hopes he can eventually use to make documentary and feature films that one day will not be produced by some of the world's best film studios.

who is this wise guy jj?

Quite early on in life JJ discovered that he was a fabricator. In 2006 his mum and dad invited him to leave their home in Cork, Ireland and head for London, where he now resides, to shake up the city. He cycles hard, drinks hard and blogs harder. You get the picture.

Currently he's alive, and, like most people his age he's 29. He longs for the day Japan get's moved right next to Ireland, and that Cork wins the world series in hurling. More than anything else he want's a book deal. Failing that a decent sandwich with French mustard, mayonnaise and Ballymaloe relish in it.

Teeing up for the Olympics

Golf has made it past the first hurdle on its way to becoming an official Olympic sport. It will be deiced in October whether it will make it on the roster of the 2016 games, which could be held in Tokyo, one of the current favourites to host the summer games.

Japan is a golf mad country, well middle-aged Japanese men are nuts about the game. I think most people who would spend hours in pursuit of a tiny hole are nuts. Other than that initial whack golf is all about control and decoroum and added to this Venezuelan president Hugo Chávez denounced golf as “a bourgeois sport.”

Now Chavez is another fully fledged card-carrying nut so he’s well placed to know, even if has never attired himself in plus fours. There was a period during the late nineties that Ireland was on the verge of being turned into one giant golfcourse, with holiday homes and apartments lining the fair ways. The nadir came with hosting the Ryder Cup in 2006 and then the bubble burst. We should stick with the Eurovision.

Anyway, I will end on this illumintaing study by Sports Illustrated of PGA golfers from 2006: of 76 P.G.A. tour players: 88% supported the invasion of Iraq; and 0% had seen “Brokeback Mountain.”

golf, rugby or roller sports

On Thurday the chiefs at the International Olympic Committee will decide which two sports will be added to the 2016 Summer Olympics. The money is on golf (super yawn) and rugby (ambivalent) to make the cut. The other sports tabled are: karate, squash, baseball, roller sports and softball. Still no love for Irish dancing.

The venue for the 2016 games will be announced on October 2 and awarded to either Chicago, Tokyo, Madrid or Rio de Janiero. Seeing as I’ll probably be east by far-east I hope Tokyo gets it.

Matco Enterprises is calling its creation, the Uroclub, the greatest golf-gift ever. But they freely admit it looks like a generic golf club. So what makes it so special? Just take a peek, I mean, a leak. That’s right, the Uroclub is a portable urinal. A small towel covers your manhood as you aim it down the shaft and relieve yourself “discreetly”. But does the man above look discreet. Fantastic idea though - the obvious next step is branching out to others sports like cricket, baseball, and even football - with a mini bowl you could either go #1 or #2 in.
