I like this guy and will be sad when his internet gets disconnected and he'll have to work 18 hours a day in the potato factory due to the financial "issues" in his part of the world.

This is a bit off-topic but my work has seen at least six unsolicited resumes come in from expat Irish types, all pretty much writing "please please please give us a job because I don't want to get sent back".

bbag bbag my nebby shot me down (darraghmac), Wednesday, 27 February 2013 12:07 (six years ago) link

I'm working on the quiz element of the lunch (highly fought over, prize is cinema vouchers) and I'm trying to avoid questions like "what is a Shillelagh?"

B.A. "Bad Attitude" Santamaria (King Boy Pato), Wednesday, 27 February 2013 12:23 (six years ago) link

btw some of my colleagues have already said "Irish food is too hard, maybe we can include some English dishes?"

B.A. "Bad Attitude" Santamaria (King Boy Pato), Wednesday, 27 February 2013 12:24 (six years ago) link

Yes, give them something they can actually eat

.... the rest look like Dudley Sutton (Tom D.), Wednesday, 27 February 2013 12:44 (six years ago) link

proper irish food , cos i never answered this, would be lamb stew, bacon and cabbage, black pudding, guinness and whiskey, eh idk beyond that.

themes? shamrocks and green and gold, get somme uileann pipe music i spose

i mean it's gammy enough, you'd genuinely be better going for the cliches, get drunk and wear a green hat and whatever else ye think we do.

For Gallagher, the driving force behind the band Oasis during the 1990s, the literary industry is bound up with issues of class, arguing that "people who write and read and review books are fucking putting themselves a tiny little bit above the rest of us who fucking make records and write pathetic little songs for a living."

According to the Bookseller's Cathy Retzenbrink, Gallagher has identified an "incredibly serious point".

"He's saying what loads of people in this country think, but don't normally have a platform to say," Retzenbrink added. "There are vast amounts of people who feel this way, who do feel that people who are comfortable with words look down on them."

with his "anti-music opinions" stance, darraghmac rails against the machine that not only celebrates him daily, but has made his career possible. this is something he shares with every thinker of integrity in history.

The cause of his death was officially diagnosed as typhoid fever, though other theories have been proposed, including the tertiary stage of syphilis.[60]

forum enthusiast (wins), Wednesday, 2 April 2014 21:58 (five years ago) link

that would explain why the current incarnation of deems/schubert no longer drinks from stagnant ponds or visits viennese houses of ill repute

idk what all counts. yr porridge and yr steptoe and son and yr yes ministers all had somethin but i dig right through to arrested development or boosh or conchords if they all count.

im not a fr ted fanatic but i have a sense of ownership of it that makes it that bit more dear to me.

Rossiter of course is peerless. Hmmm. Good question.

Oof something appalingly indie i guess, i dont rly have a favourite 'album' by 'a band' tho or at least i havent in a dozen years

james lipton and his francs (darraghmac), Tuesday, 29 April 2014 23:49 (five years ago) link

I am never surprised when darraghmac appears in a thread as The Voice of Reason. Nor am I surprised when he appears in a thread armed with spitballs and a wicked aim. He has that kind of versatility.

You're the 1st person to mention rossiter! Prob the best "canon" choice

The sins, purgatory, guilt, punishment catholicism (tho obv perrin couldnt be much more coe) aspects run deep through all in any case and prob draw me deeper in than other sitcom examples

Ted is really beholden to The Third Policeman in a bunch of ways i think

Im sure if i knew enough about dante the other two would suggest similar parallels but yeah tonally and everything else ted is permeated with the anguish of the surreal and the impossible mundane

The Chillis

Jens Ehm - Gitarren, Leadstimme –

Jens ist neben dem Bassisten Mülli eines der zwei Urgesteine der CHILLIS. Bereits 1985 gründeten Sie zusammen Ihre erste Band. Im Laufe der Jahre entwickelte sich ein eigener Stil, geprägt durch die klare und ausdrucksvolle Stimme des Leadsängers und seine Leidenschaft zum akustischen Gitarrenspiel.

Michael „Mülli“ Müller - Bass, Gesang, Stage-Announcements, Keyboard –

Hallo und willkommen zum BÄSSten Teil dieser Homepage! Wie schon erwähnt ist Mülli eines der zwei Urgesteine von THE CHILLIS. Seine prägnante Zweitstimme harmoniert durch das jahrelange gemeinsame Zusammenspiel so perfekt mit der Leadstimme von Jens, dass sie für alle Zeiten, als nie mehr ersetzbar scheint. Darüber hinaus verleiht Mülli, den im Programm anstehenden Songs, immer wieder ihre Eigennote, durch spezielle und überraschende Announcements -sprich Ansagen- , die beim Zuhörer Verwirrung bis hin zu schweren Erheiterungszuständen auslösen. Außerdem drückt er ab und an die weißen und schwarzen Tasten, so dass es sich möglichst groovisch, jazzig, oder irgendwie abgefahren zum musikalischen Spiel seiner Kollegen
hinzufügt.

want to return to this question. didn't have an answer back then but have recently discovered bourbon and it's been a revelation. favorite so far is maker's but i suspect that's a novice answer.

Treeship, Tuesday, 14 October 2014 23:43 (four years ago) link

if you let that worry you at the start you'll never graduate from novice ime.

I f/w sweeter pot stills and single malts, I can recommend peatier stuff I've tried but that's nakh's range tbh. never could stick yr American ryes or w/e but I have enjoyed bourbons, fave is prob- no snob nor expert here- jack daniels single barrel.

go-to and memorables- glenfiddich 12, Yamazaki 12, green spot, redbreast single pot, bushmills 16, glenmorangie 10 (I think) Glenlivet 12

tonight I'm drinking tesco finest reserve from a fuckin big glass and there's nothing at all wrong with it

favourite...for example of Irish prob redbreast. scotch Glenfiddich 12. no categories straight up pick one, tonight yamazaki

local eire man (darraghmac), Tuesday, 14 October 2014 23:58 (four years ago) link

i always thought it was strange that, given my family's irish heritage, we have gravitated more toward scotch than irish whiskey. i can't ever remember my grandfather drinking jameson's or bushmill's. scotch seems harsher and less accessible to me than bourbon, but i think i will give it a shot again soon.

i feel a pleasant buzz right now from two glasses of bourbon while doing my reading for class tomorrow. only downside is that i've been kind of unrestrained in my facebook messaging but i think this has been positive and ultimately what i am doing is solidifying friendships.

the final twilight of all evaluative standpoints (nakhchivan), Wednesday, 15 October 2014 23:13 (four years ago) link

hmmm

could go literal or alliteral

trísiop would suffice for latter but would mean v little I'm afraid

crannlong is basic string two together translation but rly I'm guessing you'd have to make it longcrainn or maybe crann an loinge or some such

there is a word or two a little more decorative that may or may not apply depending on the lad himselfs self-definition of the name I spose crannúil is a good descriptor and a good word to intone and would translate as treeish if one were so inclined or w/e (arboreal? you prob know)

there's doubtless words specifically for timbers and such if one chased this root to a nautical conclusion but then I guess in order to so work it would need to function on the ship and work back giving....idk.

quick search sez crannàil are masts he may have to be satisfied with that as a good metaphor and half translation.

ACE is a v amusing account of "the modern Irish writers" by the American Hugh Kenner, here is an early tidbit:

The Irish story is more complicated. Plenty of the reading matter and acting matter they produce seems intended for natives alone, but Irish writers have always been naggingly aware that Irishmen do not as a rule buy books, have never bought them, have even inherited a tradition whereby to write when you might be talking is an unnatural act. Books in England are sacred objects, exempt from the 10-percent Value Added Tax: not (until 1 April 1982) in Ireland.

I fear I'm exactly the rube suggested but in knowing it may have a possible advantage at times. I'm a culchie before all else, without any element of expertise beyond purely functional education in the liberal or classical or what have you spheres highly valued on ilx. seeing as imo there's no accounting for different experiences/education/knowledge otherwise attained so better not to assume it imo.

wider point than discussing just myself obv there's ppl with degrees and private schooling and experience on things I like to discuss and as soon as I disagree with them they're wrong.

A Dundee Utd player, Sean Dillon, was sent off at which point the Irishman sprang up and exclaimed, "Fuck off Dillon, fuck off back to Dublin, you dorty Jackeen bastard!" and let loose a series of imprecations based on Dillon's apparent provenance as a Dubliner.... then spent the rest of the game apologizing to the couple sitting behind him, who were from Dublin. Anyway, this was the first time I'd ever heard this word, Jackeen. Worth mentioning that one of the co-owners of this extremely dodgy pub is an extremely dodgy Dubliner, whose frankly psychotic brother often works behind the bar but, thankfully for the Irishman, not this afternoon. Also that the Irishman heaped abuse on Dundee Utd, abuse based on their fairly obscure nickname of the Arabs as if they actually were Arabs.

I fear I'm exactly the rube suggested but in knowing it may have a possible advantage at times. I'm a culchie before all else, without any element of expertise beyond purely functional education in the liberal or classical or what have you spheres highly valued on ilx. seeing as imo there's no accounting for different experiences/education/knowledge otherwise attained so better not to assume it imo.

― post you had fecund thoughts about (darraghmac), Sunday, 15 March 2015 17:16 (12 minutes ago)

this is just you being at the wrong end of two confidence tricks, the american liberal arts education that gives its professional classes a patina of familiarity with great works and their discontents, and the english private school thing, which is less about learning than inculcating separateness and social grace

so you imagine the posters you dislike from both of those two demographics to have an advantage over you, and it is your suspicion rather than anything concrete that does the trick, and in doing so you fall into self-pity rather than fighting with your wits

nevermind that a postgraduate computer science degree is risibly demeaned as a 'functional education', there is nothing other than functional education, thankfully yours allows you to become a civil servant rather to add filigree to whatever phatic opinions about this or that you are enjoined to express this week

tom I will allow kinship to this type of guy but only on the internet yknow I dont shout in pubs at ppl. jackeen is a term for the dubs alright idk the provenance but its a bit like ned round yr way I guess

xp there's a bit in that nakh, but I'm not saying I rate that type of education in any way tho, or maybe that I dont rate it as used on ILX by some ppl at least. a tool used badly by others in this context, but not a tool I have to use at all.

I’m as cuddly and soft as it gets. I dont know where I get a rep otherwise tbh

you are! :) it’s not that i didn’t expect you to be kind; but you’re especially kind & i was grateful for that. (also nakh and mordy were kind, when i made my first drunk political posts on ilx, and next day feared i’d made a horrible faux pas.)

also the hard to understand thing baffles me but maybe its the accent

twas not meant as criticism. mostly just mean i’m a clueless yank and follow yall’s conversation over yonder which is often obscure to me but v interesting (though sportstalk is totally impenetrable). so yes, it’s the accent.

you do make gnomic utterances but i like them (and when i get them, find more often as not they hit target)

you strike me as extremely intelligent & astute yet often self-deprecatingly dissimulate this— charming & good a posting style as any (better than many); but admittedly sometimes i’d like to hear more of your thoughts
(again not a criticism but a compliment)

seconding nakh, some of the dummest people i’ve ever met were overeducated in (what passes for) liberal arts these days (include myself in this class of the badly educated)

anyway, hi back from the other side of the atlantic

Running bounce
(or simply bounce) the act of a player bouncing the football on the ground and back to himself while running, which must be done once every fifteen metres.

Snap
a shot at goal, usually executed under pressure from an unlikely scoring position. It is almost invariably a kick across the body (i.e., for a right footer, a kick aimed to far left) and typically exaggerates the natural tendency of the ball to drift slightly right to left from a right footer, and left to right from the left footer. It is in this way the reverse of a "checkside" or "banana".[13]

The amount of time to be added on is determined by independent time-keepers who stop the game clock when indicated by the central umpires. Lower grade and lower age-group competitions will often be played without time-on.[3]
Torpedo
(colloq. screwie, torp or barrel) a punt kick that rotates the ball around its long axis, which is aligned with the direction the ball is travelling. Regarded as the type of kick with the longest distance, but the lowest chance of being accurate.[31]
Total Football
a tactic where less emphasis is placed on set positions and structures. Apart from 2 (or 3) key defenders and forwards, all players play 'through the middle'. It was perfected by Mick Malthouse during his later years at Collingwood and thought to have its origins in Association Football's Total Football, a style pioneered by the Dutch national team in the 1970s.[32]
Touch
colloquialism for possession or disposal.
Touched
indicates that a ball was touched by another player after being kicked; such a kick cannot result in a mark, a goal, or an out of bounds on the full free kick.
Trip
a low tackle which will result in a free kick to the opposition. Furthermore, tripping or attempting to trip an opponent with the foot or leg will lead to a player being reported.[3]

These ideal roles plus the physical roles of men and women control their relationship so completely that outside of these roles, "any possibility of a personal relationship... is completely excluded."[16] It is also central to the woman's role, for complex reasons which make sense within the framework of Greek culture, that she is obliged to remain in the house, in fact, "she is the house... a woman's absence from the house is contrary to her role."[17]

was working fitting kitchens one summer a life ago and I walked into this apartment building we were working on that was getting a lot done on a few different units at once between electrics, kitchens, plastering and all that,so there were strange faces about the whole time. walked into a room getting painted by one of the first black guys I'd ever seen irl (I'm irish btw) and v likely the first I'd ever had spoken with, viz, at high volume from himself, HOWROOBI.

Well you can imagine, rly. I said ? in not as many words, being 16 and totally struck by the moment and wanting not to be unfriendly or awkward but at that stage of development socially where all I was projecting to the world was awkward unfriendliness. bastard had a gleam in his eye as he repeated happily HOWROOBI and at this stage I'm mugging like an early career Hugh Laurie, not wanting to say anything as obvious or stupid as "sorry I only speak english" (and being 16 still as apt to claim honours French, pass irish and three words of Dutch in any such sentence in any case).

dude advances, fuckin gleam in his eye now, slows it right down like I'm the idiot I'm clearly appearing to be, HOWR-OOBI, this is shit, I'm all but about to run out in agonised bewilderment or attempt a Chevy Chasesque bluff of massive proportions along the lines of generic multinational welcoming custom, when a fella walks in thats working with him:

HOWROOBI, GRAND HOWROOBI, GRAND. DOES THIS YUNG LAD NOT TAAAAWKATALL?

So we come to Lady Gregory. [...] it was she who contrived and imposed an "Anglo-Irish" anybody with half an ear could imitate. For decades it was the idiom of stock plays at the Abbey, where the irreverent gave marks for "PQ" (Peasant Quality). It is as formulaic as pseudo-Yiddish and any funny man can still drop into it.

[...]Open Cuchulain of Muirthemne at random: "'I swear by the oath of my people,' said Cuchulain, 'I will make my doings be spoken of among the great doings of heroes in their strength.'"

"My deeds will be remembered," that is, "with the great deeds heroes performed when they were in their prime"; but we have here an idiom which habitually prefers the verb-like form--doings for deeds, the immediate form--spoken of for remembered, and the concrete form--strength for prime.

We have also a syntactical mannerism which we may notice as early in the book as Lady Gregory's explanation of how she shaped her language. "I have told the whole story in plain and simple words, in the same way my old nurse Mary Sheridan used to be telling stories from the Irish long ago, and I a child at Roxborough."

Since Lady Gregory commenced learning Irish only when she was past forty, we are to understand that her old nurse Mary Sheridan used to be talking to her in English, an English moreover that has been strained and stressed by Irish habits of thought. "And I a child at Roxborough" is a symptom, and the way it differs from "When I was a child" merits pondering, with a valuable exposition by Maire Cruise O'Brien to guide us. We shall find that the English sense of things works from verb to verb like Latin, and arranges verbs in systems of subordination, chronological or causal. "She told me that when I was a child" is a normal English sentence, the "was" clause subordinated to the "told" clause. But Irish centers on states, represented by nouns and noun-like constructions. "She used to be telling me" recreates her telling as a stable, ongoing process, she telling and telling, in a vivid pocket of time, something to picture; "I a child" locates my condition as that telling proceeded; the "and" does no more than link these, the child put into the picture with the storyteller.

[...]Mrs O'Brien states the principle a little more technically:

Irish syntax concentrates on the expression of states rather than actions; its verbal system is highly aspective, with the subject of the sentence as the focus of the utterance and all occurrences relating back thereto. It shows a marked predilection for the substantival cast of sentence, ie, a sentence where the noun carries the main burden of content. It has a highly developed prepositional system widely employed; prepositions in Irish supply many of the functions of the verb in English.

When these Irish habits are strong, as in the speech of first-generation bilinguals, they produce such violations of idiom as "If it is a thing that he do come." This means "If he should come," and the word "thing" is trying to anchor it to the aspective. But under pressure from English idiom more accurately sensed that kind of pidgin tends to vanish, "and only Gaelicisms inherently amenable to the recipient structure are retained in the mono-lingual Anglo-Irish." So an English comes to be spoken that has nothing grammatically wrong with it but with still something strange about it, a strangeness frequently obtained by the Irish habit of concentrating on states but supplementing the feeble English verb "to be" with verbs like "put," "leave," "have," which are used to indicate how a state of things has been effected: "She has him crying" (She has made him cry); "I put the fear of God on him" (I frightened him severely); "Have it off him" (take it from him).

regarding this slab of irishsplaining:

i. does this seem correct to you or is it bs?
ii. if it is correct and not bs, to what extent do you think these apparent "irish" modes of speech have diffused into non-irish english in general?

piqued (wins), Sunday, 19 April 2015 22:58 (four years ago) link

oh wow that's great

it is imo ime utterly correct. hearkening back to the island, where I have the benefit of conversation with genuine bilinguals, the usage of an Irish grammar as described is unquestionable, and I can lapse into it as easily as changing gear.

lady gregory et al get a frequent dose of lampooning from Flann O'Brien across various works for, eh let's call it a well-meaning overusage of such idiom, especially as pushed on the abbey for years, so it isnt a new discovery.

post you had fecund thoughts about (darraghmac), Sunday, 19 April 2015 23:23 (four years ago) link

it may also be noted that others might advise on the extent to which the cultural nationalism movement rebuilt/revised an gaeilge themselves, maybe not at all as spoken in the rural areas or maybe with some influence, this then to exert its own influence on anglo-irish patterns as described.. I may be misremembering/attributing the extent to which the language had died out or was homogenised from a central source during this process.

Then there is the custom of beginning each sentence, straight off, with a verb, being it only a sort of "'Tis." "Went we to Galway yesterday" would be a paradigm, and "It's we went to Galway yesterday," "It's yesterday we went to Galway," "It's to Galway we went yesterday," would be various alterations of emphasis, with "is"--Irish "is"-- for that inelustable head-verb; hence Synge's "It's cold he is surely," or "It's soon he'd be falling asleep." What's done with syntax needn't be done with voice, and the Irish voice accordingly is free to play its equable tune, under no responsibility for assigning emphasis.

piqued (wins), Sunday, 19 April 2015 23:31 (four years ago) link

the reason I asked about diffusion into non irish english is that none of those three egs "She has him crying" (She has made him cry); "I put the fear of God on him" (I frightened him severely); "Have it off him" (take it from him). seem that uncommon from where I'm sitting, granted I did grow up around glaswegians but

piqued (wins), Sunday, 19 April 2015 23:35 (four years ago) link

well you'd have to allow "Gaelic" to stand for "irish" and then there's no question at all of it being the same influence

"O'Nolan's journalistic pseudonym is taken from a character (Myles-na-Coppaleen) in Dion Boucicault's play The Colleen Bawn, who is the stereotypical charming Irish rogue. At one point in the play, he sings the ancient anthem of the Irish Brigades on the Continent, the song "An Crúiscín Lán" (hence the name of the column in the Irish Times).

Capall is the Irish word for "horse" (from Vulgar Latin caballus), and 'een' (spelled ín in Irish) is a diminutive suffix. The prefix na gCapaillín is the genitive plural in his Ulster Irish dialect (the Standard Irish would be "Myles na gCapaillíní"), so Myles na gCopaleen means "Myles of the Little Horses". Capaillín is also the Irish word for "pony", as in the name of Ireland's most famous and ancient native horse breed, the Connemara pony.

O'Nolan himself always insisted on the translation "Myles of the Ponies", saying that he did not see why the principality of the pony should be subjugated to the imperialism of the horse."

just liked how it tied in there at the end.

the fella to whom I refer is kevin barry, michael b and number none have mentioned him before now that ive done a search. this book of short stories is pretty much peerless as a description of the rural irish wandering chancer and has made my week.

darraghmac - elderly irish poster who registers for ILF in february 2053. initially hamstrung by his haphazard vietnamese and total ignorance of the subject of fabergé eggs, darraghmac is cautiously indulged despite his coarse and prejudicial views towards silicon based lifeforms. while insisting that he has never had any interest in or knowledge of fabergé eggs, he tells yarns about a mythical predecessor of ILF where snarky english people argued about the merits of soccerball players and provided an early platform for experimental novelist and 2034 ordre des artes et des lettres inductee phil mcnulty.

there does seem to be more of a sort of metropolitan ambience to the deems project these days

maybe social there is more of a politics-of-the-everyday thing than about whether u think cattle rustlers should be beheaded (presuming still a tick for that)

ilx has made me more liberal to the prospect of tolerating executions for many categories of offenders, though whether to go for public private partnerships or fully liberalize the execution market is unclear

It's a tough call for me obv professionally I'm agin the outsourcing of these functions but privately I have my reservations as to the efficiency of their provision from the pool of existing public expertises
