Another year, and another Happy Christmas to everyone out there. And like last year, what better way to celebrate the season than with the immortal Fairytale of New York from the lovely Pogues and Kristy McColl.
P.S. The kicker of the whole video has to be Matt Dillon at the beginning of the video.
Anyways, a very, very Happy Christmas from the overdrive family.
You know what, I was kinda excited to see this lame romantic comedy until that group of bloody Muppets just ruined it all…
(Well played Disney, well played)
Ah yes, it’s that time of year kiddies. St. Patrick’s day.
And this St. Patrick’s will be an extra special one for the old ctoverdrive. As not only will it be my first St. Patty’s in Arlington (An strongly Irish part of The District), but it’ll be my first St Patty’s in three years where I wasn’t traveling from SXSW. So to get you in the mood for some good time, please enjoy this classic Pogues number.
(Also, if you’re stuck at work please try out The write your own Irish Memoir Mad-Libs Style... courtesty of Mr. Rennie).
I can’t imagine a better way to celebrate Christmas than with the Pogues, Kirsty MacColl and one of the most amazing Christmas songs ever written.
You promised me broadway was waiting for me
You were handsome you were pretty
Queen of new york city when the band finished playing they yelled out for more
Sinatra was swinging all the drunks they were singing
We kissed on a corner
Then danced through the night.
And the boys from the NYPD choir were singing Galway Bay
And the bells were ringing out for christmas day.
So to everyone out there, have a Happy Christmas and may you get drop down drunk on Boxing day.
Yes kids, rumors of demise have been greatly exaggerated.
I’d love to get into the details of the past 30-odd days, but I really need to conserve my energy for figuring out what city I am in. So in the meantime, you’ll have to enjoy this great example of everyone’s second favorite tech term – crowdsourcing… albeit this is a wee-bit different than you’re normal example of crowdsourcing.
The story goes that these girls uploaded this video to YouTube shortly after committing the crime. So what do the Boston Bruins do when some drunk southie girls trashes the beloved bathrooms of the new TD Gardens? They make them pay for the damages and turn the event into a hilarious commercial featuring The Creepy Bear.
And for the record, the creepy Bear is clearly the most entertaining spokesman in sports. Well, except Delonte West... Except he’s not really a spokesman… He’s just nuts.
