Interesting comic, here.

Any road, it's nicely drawn, the settings are interesting, and the characters are likeable. Plus, there's lesbian elf kisses!

This is very unexpected, but very interesting.

The Xi'An Sí. Irish traditional music played on Chinese instruments.

Thanks to the lovely Ómra Ní Rosach for the link!

Hmm... tough question to answer.
ETA: I find it odd that people are listing the songs on their Ipods. I'd only say that I know a song off by heart if I can actually sing it, without any notes or a recording to sing along with.

"The Lady Leroy"
"The Errant Apprentice"
"The Devil's Only Daughter"
"Ma Jolie Fleur"
"There Was a Lady"
"I Am Stretched on Your Grave"
"Lady Margaret"
"Sur le Pont de Lyon"
"Fear a' Bháta"
"The Busker"
"Cajun Telephone Stomp"
"The Baron of Brackley"
"Monday Morning"
"My Parents Reared Me Tenderly"
"Michael Dwyer's Escape"
"The Drowned Lovers"

Some of those would take a while to come out of storage, but with a little time I reckon I could do it. And I've a feeling there's a good few songs I'm forgetting. And of course there's a lot of songs to which I know the chorus to sing along with, but not so much the rest.

For that matter, there's a number of songs I could probably manage the better part of, but haven't ever learnt all the way through. "Kinmont Willie," as an example; it's too long for most people to want to hear it and I don't feel sufficiently comfortable singing in Scots.

I don't get to sing as much as I'd like; there's not any singers' session round here, and not much call for singing, especially genuinely traditional Irish singing, rather than folk-dreck like "The Fields of Athenry" with guitar accompaniment, at the sessions. (Am I bitter? Of course not. Well, not much, anyhow.)
