A brief musical interlude..

The Langerland gang have a produced a new, definitive, animated History of Irish Music, from the Stone Age to the Future, including those difficult Eurovision years.. Warning, may will probably cause offence. Scandaliforous, indeed.

    i have not watched it as i can’t get flash, but let me guess : happy little Irish people skillfully playing their tin whistles while savage orange neanderthals simply blatter a big drum with no rythme or talent for no other reason than to be a shower of pigs ?
    is he right ?

  • Pete Baker

    No juan, he’s not right… and he clearly hasn’t watched any Langerland cartoons before.

  • jaun

    your quite right , he hasn’t. i do beg your pardon peter, when your at the abortorium, you expect trees.

  • Or you just assume a truth that validates your existing prejudices, as do most uninformed, ignorant clowns

  • Pete Baker

    Keep it down to a dull roar, zOMG.

    This is supposed to be in the humour category.

    *shakes head*

  • Well Peter,

    The humour was ruined by the end of the first comment.

    ** blinks a couple of times and get’s on with life, ignoring the histrionic shaking of head **

    how can you be sure jaun holds prejudices? unless you think you’ve guessed his religious affiliation and have made negative assumptions based upon it ?
    I made my assumption based on experience and observation, these lead me to conclude a probable explanation for the phrase “may will probably cause offence”. perhaps I was hasty but as I say given the constant repetition of sectarian dirt that exudes from the Republican sphere when they brooch the subject of the other culture, the constant negative stereotyping and the shrill insistence on unremitting condemnation it seemed probable. I do not think it would be prejudice to even say typical.

    ps – “assume a truth ” ?

  • Pete Baker

    jaun

    You pre-judged the link because you assumed you knew what I meant by that phrase.

    Now, if/when you get around to watching the cartoon feel free to come back to comment on the topic.

    jaun: “how can you be sure jaun holds prejudices?”

    Oh, I dunno — the content, tone and timbre of jaun’s posts?

    jaun: “I made my assumption based on experience and observation…”

    Except you neither observed or experienced the item in question…

    jaun: “I say given the constant repetition of sectarian dirt that exudes from the Republican sphere when they brooch the subject of the other culture, the constant negative stereotyping and the shrill insistence on unremitting condemnation it seemed probable.”

    In other words, you assumed.

  • jaun

    common tater,

    “In other words, you assumed.” – indicated better by the phrase “I made my assumption “, I’d have thought…..

    “Except you neither observed or experienced the item in question…” – indeed, therefore it should be obvious that my “experience and observation” was of the general “sectarian dirt that exudes from the Republican sphere “.

    Regarding your remark “tone and timbre of jaun’s posts” – if you thought my comment was prejudice against your or your society in some personal fashion I apologise, I can assure you it was reaction to the nauseatingly repetitive display of the typical prejudice that can be observed every day in papers, blogs and among the community, it is an unavoidable ire, which is not persecutionary or prejudice but a just response to a vile function of a vile movement. The remark was indeed caustic, however it was caustic against the common republican portrayal of Irish society and culture, not the culture or society itself, which (the typical republican portrayal) I ascribed to a video link as a little bit of a fun gambit, I was wrong (for which, my root veg chum, I am thankful) but if we look at the function of most expressions of ‘Irish culture’ (especially in the North) I could have got good odds on being right.

    Peter,
    your quite right, I’m a silly man, in my defence who has been over exposed to the republican slander machine and its left me more than a little jittery in regarding the nationalist side of our communities expressions of their opinions on my culture or indeed its traditional music. Given the shrill insistence on unremitting condemnation that is forced upon them from birth, you can see how it has arisen that their opinions and expressions on scotch irish culture could be………prejudice.

    So this thread doesn’t consist of a single comment upon the Langerland animation! Get it together, lasses and lads, please, and watch the damned thing – you’ll never see Mary Harney in the same light again.
