Fitzpatrick's Irish Pub News!

As all of you know Fitzpatrick's Irish Pub has always held a close place in my heart. About 12 years ago I was here on vacation with a girl and she said that she'd heard a new Irish pub was opening up, and maybe we could go and get some decent beer

Little was I to know when we stopped in that night, that the place would one day become a second home to me. When I was down, Nico and Liz and Tony and the bar staff would be there with a laugh. When it was time to celebrate they would make me even happier. And, when I would get at bit too full of myself, there would always be someone there to tell me to "fuck off" and bring me back to my senses.

The original Fizpatrick's Irish Pub site was also my first Internet based job seven years ago and the one that taught me html, and how to fill out web forms and load jpegs and all the rest.

Anyway, today the Fitzpatrick's boys are launching a new guide to Montpellier. Take a look!!! You'll get a sense of just how beautiful this city is!

In addition they are also launching the new Official Fitzpatrick's Irish Pub Site!

Rock on Ben!!! It looks beautiful!

There's even more interesting news!!!

I first came to Montpellier when I was 19 years old. Being American this means that I had never legally stepped into a pub before and ordered a pint. So, when my host family asked what I wanted to do my first Friday night here I said, "I'd like to go to a pub."

They took me to a place called The Irish Tavern - the official bar of Bart's first legal pint.

That bar was open for years, but was finally shut for renovations last year.

It turns out that the Fitzpatrick's people are going to reopen it under a new name soon!

Behold!

The Inn.

Playing around with my blog layout.

Can anyone tell me if the "Calendar Communications" link on the left hand side works. I think it does, but Elance is so cookie based I want to make sure it's not only working on this PC.

Thanks!

Searching through Photobucket today for a picture of Squirt I found this picture, which was taken a day or two after Rome Girl moved in with me in Montpellier.

What the fuck was going on with my hair?

Lard Ass

I don't think I've ever seen something that combines being really hot, really weird and really gross all in one package quite as much as the video on this Fleshbot Entry.

Please be warned!!!

This is horribly, terrifyingly, absolutely, positively not safe for any work environment outside of Gomorrah.

Ooops!!!

Got the brand new awesome computer from texmorgan today.

But it looks like the customs people wiped the hard drive.

No clue what to do about that.

Life is a journey.

UPDATE; IT TURNS OUT THAT THE HARD DRIVE SIMPLY GOT BUMPED AWAY FROM IT'S GOOD CONNECTIONS. TEX WALKED ME THROUGH IT AND WITH A STEAK KNIFE (NOT JOKING) AND A DREAM WE GOT IT FIXED IN THE WAY THAT ONLY MEN CAN.

The Best Rock Song Ever Written

Rome Girl don't play this. You won't like it.



And then the acoustic version!!




And finally.... the best ever...

I don't know how to explain this if you don't get it or not.

But, HOLY MOTHER OF FUCK IT'S GLENN DANZIG SINGING WITH JIMMY HETFIELD IN DUET

I mean I'm not sure who god is, but it's either Glenn or James
