Intro [20 Oct 2008|11:14am]

Name/Age: Ian, 18
Five hobbies you enjoy: Martial arts, photography, writing, going to concerts, cooking
Five bands (or more) you LIKE: Flogging Molly, Nightwish, Metallica, The Killers, Tom Waits, Gaelic Storm, The Sisters of Mercy, Apocalyptica, System of a Down, Live, Korn
Five bands (or more) you HATE: I can't think of names off the top of my head. I'm not a fan of most country or shitty gangsta rap.
Three movies (or more) you like: The Departed, Fight Club, Snatch, Lucky Number Slevin, Serenity, The Prestige, A Scanner Darkly, American Beauty, The Virgin Suicides, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
What was the last book you read?: Right now I'm in the middle of "Deadeye Dick" (Vonnegut), but the last book I finished was "Stone Butch Blues" by Leslie Feinberg.
What Nationalities are you?: I'm American, but comprised of: English, Irish, German, a little Danish and a little Welsh.

How do you feel about:
Sex?: Go for it. Personally it's not a huge part of my life (by choice), but I've got no issues with it.
Gay Marriage?: I think the government should stay out of people's romantic entanglements entirely, but if it's going to interfere it should interfere equally.
Bush?: Kind of a dumbfuck.
Kerry?: The politician? Pretty irrelevant these days, I suppose.
The war in Iraq?: I want it to end so everyone can come home, but realistically? I don't know.
Drugs?: I think there's a point where you move beyond responsible use and just become stupid and addicted. Up until that point, go ahead.
If your cd player was on repeat, which song would you pick to listen to over and over again?: At the moment, Nightwish's "Last of the Wilds". I would just buy a new CD player, though. ;-)
Tell a joke: Why does Snoop Dogg carry an umbrella?

Fo' drizzle!

Why should you be allowed near the bar?: Uh. 'cause I tell clever stories?
What job (if any) do you have? (work): I work at a Starbucks. Yeah I know, shut up.
Rock or Rap?: Rock, in general, but honestly some rap is pretty cool as an art form. It's just the mainstream gangsta shit that gets churned out that gives it all a bad name.

    [ mood | chipper ]

    Name/Age: Adrianne, 22
    Five hobbies you enjoy: Writing, drawing, singing, storyboarding, jogging
    Five bands (or more) you LIKE: Barenaked Ladies, FLOGGING MOLLY!!, Off Kilter, Green Day, Dave Matthews Band...I totally love Celtic Rock!
    Five bands (or more) you HATE: Britney Spears, Ashlee Simpson, Jessica Simpson...just any of the bubble gum pop groups...except for *NSync. Those guys can still jam for me anyday. :P
    Three movies (or more) you like: Disney's the Hunchback of Notre Dame (a childhood fav), Wayne's World, and the Producers.
    What was the last book you read?: Tracks by Louise Erdrich. Very very good book. Highly recommended, even though I had to read it for a class.
    What Nationalities are you?: Mostly Polish and German, but I've got bits of Irish and French in me too.
    How do you feel about:
    Sex?: I'm personally waiting for marriage, but everybody to their own ideals.
    Gay Marriage?: I get kinda technical about this. Separation of church and state. If the church says no by their laws, so be it. No gay marriage. But the government has a duty to serve the people, no matter who they be. Everyone is allowed those same rights and marriage is one of them. So gay marriage should be allowed in the state.
    Bush?: I try to keep an open mind that he's trying to do his best for his country, but his attitude about it is a turn off. So can't say I'm really a fan.
    Kerry?: Didn't seem too bad of a guy. I'll admit I voted for him.
    The war in Iraq?: Don't understand much of it, so I'm not gonna give an opinion.
    Drugs?: Bad stuff man. Never did an illegal one in my life. Seen too many lives go bad over that stuff.
    If your cd player was on repeat, which song would you pick to listen to over and over again?: Oh man. This seems lame, but one of my all time favorite songs is "Lady Marmalade" from Moulin Rouge, so it would probably be that. LOL
    Tell a joke: Kind of on the spot. Okay, this is just a bit of what happened yesterday, but for some reason at the restaurant where I work, we have this mini hedge trimmer in our kitchen. It has something to do with the bread...whether it be for slicing, I don't know. But one of the girls is working on it and she goes, "How do I use this with the bread?" Without missing a beat, I shouted out, "Very carefully!"
    Why should you be allowed near the bar?: Because I can eat more chicken tenders than anyone else.
    What job (if any) do you have? (work): I'm a waitress at a local restaurant. I also do part time as a reference librarian at my university.
    Rock or Rap?: ROCK ALL THE WAY!!...but some rap is alright.
    Here come the pics!!Collapse )

    Greetings! [25 Oct 2005|10:21pm]

    Hi guys! I’m new here, so I just wanted to take a minute to say hi!

    I am the third generation of my family to be born on American soil, with my great grandparents coming from County Donegal, Ireland. I am proud of my heritage and fond of the culture that I grew up learning about. The myths, legends, and history of the Celts and of Ireland have motivated and inspired me in many ways.

    If anyone is interested, one of those ways happens to be Celtic Jewelry. The history behind the symbols and the beauty of Celtic artwork mystify me, and keep me wanting to learn more. Please take a moment and visit http://www.celticjewelrybox.com and let me know what you think. If you happen to see something you like, we have lots of excellent deals.

    That being out of the way, I am looking for some online resources to help with my Gaelic before my next trip to Ireland. Any suggestions?

    x-posted a few places
