They Are Irish

They Are Irish
by Nellie Moran

They are Irish -
they drink strong drink and live long lives,
they bury their sons and daughters and then
their sons and daughters bury them.

They are Irish -
they are a people of emotions,
a people of strong hands and warm hearts,
a hard people with an inborn love of fragile things.

They are Irish -
they are a stubborn loyal people,
A people of bad luck, of dead dreams
that were not easy dying.

They are Irish -
they laugh and weep from the depths of their being
and their story and the story of all Irish
is written in their eyes.

They are Irish -
they have a rough and tumble way about them yet,
they play with children and share their dreams,
they have a broad, warm grin.

They are Irish -
and had they never been conquered, had not all their
causes failed, then they would be, what in their hearts
they are -- a warm and gentle people.
But the world labeled them slaves and sought always to
remind them of their place.
Yet pride, nay arrogance, made straight their back and
set a certain hardness to their face.

So it is, that, They are Irish -
and they must live two lives.

One - for the world to see,
The other - because they must be who they are.

Happy St. Patrick's Day.

Saturday Morning Watchmen

So, apparently Watchmen is doing so well at the box office that they've already greenlit a Saturday morning cartoon version for the WB. Check out the opening credits sequence; I think they've got a hit!



Please don't actually think this is real; it's just another brilliant parody...

Dead Set!

Combine Zombie infection with the Big Brother TVseries and you have a pretty good mini series! Picked this up on amazon.uk and well worth a watch.

Dagon and done it...

Part of me wants to play a big game of Arkham with all the expansions. That part is probably crazier than Abdul Alhazred.

Escape From City 17

This is one of the best fan films I've seen. It looks good and the acting isn't half bad for "just a couple'a dudes".
