Hi, y’all.

It’s been an Irish-punk wake in honor of John Chandley this week — the Pogues and Fiddler’s Green, and now Flogging Molly with a live performance of “If I Ever Leave This World Alive,” performed in Switzerland in 2006. I’ll miss him and this is the best way I know to honor him here.

It was sunny today and I had friends around while I worked and plan to spend time with more tonight, which is about all anyone can ask for in this life.

Tomorrow is Cartoon Friday and I’ll have a weird, old, thought-provoking short film for you then.

This is our latest MyFDL open thread. What’s on your mind?
