"...Consider this: If a restaurant server delivered an iPad-like device to your table with the final bill that allowed you to immediately share feedback about the restaurant experience, would you use it? Software developer and entrepreneur Bernard Briggs and his business partner, Food Network celebrity chef Robert Irvine, were in Austin a couple of weeks back promoting their new product to local restaurants. Humm is a patent-pending technology that allows restaurant owners to capture guest feedback with a high success rate while diners are still in the restaurant..."
"...You probably already know the score from that time when you binge-watched a whole season subsisting on leftover pizza and and box wine; but in case you don’t Restaurant: Impossible is a hit show that pairs failing eateries with celebrity chef/ notable torso Robert Irvine in an effort to revitalize their business...."
"...The gang’s all here, but T2’s crazed storyline (by screenwriter John Hodge, adapting from Irvine Welsh’s novels) packs a walloping emotional punch. No one is having any fun here, despite the return of Iggy Pop on the soundtrack; T2 is rife with regret, melancholy, lost youth, and (of course) a new, nihilistically updated “choose life” speech from Renton..."
"...Also retained for this sophomore effort are many of the same crew members who worked on Shallow Grave. Additionally, Irvine Walsh, the author of the novel on which Trainspotting is based, appears as a drug dealer toward the end of the movie..."

"...Three muted cheers for the Yanks, then -- All Natural Lemon and Lime Flavors, Bethany Curve -- who've been doing their best to bring that subculture back. And three full-throated cheers for Irvine, California's Starflyer 59, who've just put out an album as good as any produced by the original movement (save, of course, the immortal Loveless)..."
"...Trainspotting wasn't just a movie. Irvine Welsh's original 1993 novel was a radical jolt to the Nineties literary scene, on a par with Fight Club or American Psycho..."

"...It would be a stretch to say all these stories are so unselfconscious and searching -- Helen Fielding's "Luckybitch" and Irvine Welsh's "Catholic Guilt (You Know You Love It)" certainly aren't (Fielding and Welsh seem to be holding their narrators up for either ridicule or scorn; perhaps it's a coincidence, but their stories are also less memorable).
