Tales of a Post-Grad Nothing

Wednesday, January 26, 2005

In Ireland until Monday, so postings will be scarce. Some stats on Ireland:

Time it took to see a red-haired, thick-accented man: 0 minutes, my pilot was so stereotypically Irish, I wanted to check his breath for whiskey

First song heard in Ireland: Kiss From A Rose On The Grave. The Irish must be huge Seal fans...someone's gotta be.

Time it took to see a drunk Irish man point at me and fall over: 1 hour

FACT: Tattooed Irish men have NO SHAME in playing American country music and singing loudly to it.

Time it took to hear a U2 song: 9 hours, 24 minutes. Aren't U2 like the Riverdance of pop music here? Seriously, if you want to listen to Irish-only pop music, you have the choice of U2, Sinead, and the Cranberries...oh and Van Morrison. Everything else you've got to import. I would think that one of the Irish four would be played every 3 minutes, just to keep Irish pop alive.

Best thing seen so far: Anti-litter poster featuring a child with dead, dead eyes pointing towards the camera captioned by "Who Litters?"

Strangest thing seen so far: Advertisement for Boogie Nights 2: The Musical. Here is the description:
"Boogies Nights 2: The Musical follows the story of Roddy O'Neill's electric dreams ten years on and is bursting with over 80 pulsating hits by Wham!, The Human League, and many more!"

Stop me if I'm wrong here, but wasn't Boogie Nights 1 mainly about huge cock? I mean wasn't big honkin' cock the basic premise of Boogie Nights? Well, the sequel is (unfortunately) about the 80s. Go figure.
