Tribute to Tommy Makem, filmed in Matt Molloy's Pub in Westport, Co. Mayo.

Róisín White's doing the introduction here--I'm hoping she's singing later on, although I haven't the time to watch the video through just the now. I took a class from her a couple of years ago--she's a brilliant singer.

Jesus, lots of things. I miss some people very badly, I'm trying to write something that's not flowing, not able to let myself write what I feel like writing, and awkward situations continue to be awkward.

But I did at least have a nice chat in Irish on the phone, and played some tunes with somebody on Sunday whom I've not played with in a while. And I've a gig on Saturday, although as usual the money will be small to non-existent.

The Lord of the Rings: A Source-Criticism Analysis

Experts in source-criticism now know that The Lord of the Rings is a redaction of sources ranging from the Red Book of Westmarch (W) to Elvish Chronicles (E) to Gondorian records (G) to orally transmitted tales of the Rohirrim (R). The conflicting ethnic, social and religious groups which preserved these stories all had their own agendas, as did the "Tolkien" (T) and "Peter Jackson" (PJ) redactors...

It's hilarious, or at least I think so.

About fifteen minutes ago, when it was still fairly light. Quite bold of him. Or her, whichever. I wish I'd had my camera out, sos I could've tried for a photograph.
