Remember yesterday when I proposed an ensemble romantic comedy celebrating St. Patrick’s Day? Funny Or Die beat me to it, with their new faux-trailer for Boston Movie, a mash-up of every action, drama, and thriller movie set in Boston. OK, so most of the “romance” is substituted with prison brawls and shootouts, but no lie, it’s very, very funny. (These guys love their language, so maybe put in your headphones if you’re watching this at work.) More
Little known fact: St. Patrick wasn’t actually Irish. In fact, he was captured from Britain as a teenager by Irish raiders and taken to Ireland as a slave. He escaped eventually, but became an ordained bishop in the north and west of Ireland once he entered the Church. Largely known for chasing the snakes out of Ireland, we now celebrate this Patron Saint by drinking heavily on the day of his death. So, in honor of March 17th and St. Patrick, we bring you this gallery of 17 awesome fictional Irish characters. Slainte! More
Blame Love Actually for making an epic, starstudded romantic comedy all about Christmas. Or blame American film studios, who have to copy everything that the UK does in the hopes of making a dime.

Round about the time that I was growing up, the Riverdance phenomenon hit the world like a many-footed Irish storm, and I’ll admit, I got pretty caught up in it. I’ve always had a thing for Celtic music– my mother has recollections of little Toddler Me kicking my feet in my car seat to the rhythm of Celtic Soujourn on NPR– so this is perhaps understandable. I was a little less taken with Michael Flatley – to be honest, he sort of scared me. He got even scarier when he split off from Riverdance to create Lord of the Dance (not to be confused with The Lord of the Rings), a shirtless spectacle driven solely by the force of Flatley’s own ego.
