Lagniappe is gone now, but his memory lives on.
I like The Black Velvet Band quite a bit, I've heard the Dubliners play it with Ronnie Drew singing, I like that version better. Too bad it doesn't appear to be on YouTube.
And at 5:00 PM tonight the mainstream media will dutifully post video of the Chicago River in all of its green glory as though it had never been done before. A Guiness and maybe a wee dram of Bushmill's to keep you through the night.
Good ones, thanks!
Just to say I'm disgusted by your using videos that support a terrorist organisation while British forces are helping you in Afghanistan. Maybe you'd like it better if we started donating money to the Taliban so they could kill American troops or giving them political asylum.Have a long hard think about it, please.
I don't support the IRA, mainly because of their tactics--car bombs and back-shooting. However, the day was(is) an Irish holiday and such things are now part of Ireland's history and culture in addition to being catchy tunes. Nothing personal.
