Gome of the Week
It's only 8 PM on the west coast and there's already reports of St. Patrick's related injuries.
Even I have enough sense to not maneuver a vehicle on a day like this.
This Week's Link That's Probably Not That Great
St. Patrick's Day Jokes - Not that funny and kind of racist, but I'm too lazy to find anything else.
This Week's Movie You've Probably Never Seen
State of Grace (1990)
It's St. Pattie's day, so let's talk about the Irish mob in New York.
Sean Penn's undercover, Gary Oldman's a drunk with a gun, and Ed Harris is a short bald badass. You can't go wrong.
This may also be remembered as the film where Sean Penn met Robin Wright and they fell in sweet, sweet love.
One of Sean Penn's most underrated films, this is a damn fine flick that ends with a really splendid final scene that is based around a St. Patrick's day parade.
Let's get Irish.
This Week's Record You're Probably Not Listening To
House of Pain - House of Pain (1992)
Who knew that Irish boys could represent?
Everlast, Lethal, and Danny Boy kick it on the real with some production help from DJ Muggs and some attitudes that are probably too cocky.
Yet, a good record to listen to every 6 months or so.
Especially on day like the Pattie's.
