bluebird or bluejay – whichever one is an asshole

Filed under: Info / Explanation, Photograph — MacDuff @ 12:46 pm

apparently this bird, which is recognizable by its ultra-annoying call, does not build nests but steals them from other birds, and is basically the “greifer” of the bird world

It makes the sound that inspires bitch-slapping.

did you know the irish were religious?

Filed under: Info / Explanation, Ireland — MacDuff @ 10:37 am

i found this place there called a “church” but i couldn’t tell if it was catholic or protestant – it’s all the same to those christians! especially in ireland!

Protestant and Catholic are actually anagrams. True story.

Kilmainham Gaol, Dublin

Filed under: Info / Explanation, Ireland, Object, Photograph, Portrait — MacDuff @ 12:20 pm

maybe i’m in a better mood or maybe the nostalgia is coming – i feel like i won’t get all these ireland pics out if i go one-by-one, so i’m assembling this one little package of photos from one area, and now i get to play narrator and you’re all victims of a slideshow (but one for which you choose the pace)

if it helps, replace the sound of my voice with that of morgan freeman! (hee hee)

i’m not sure i’ll do any more packages, but the historical jail certainly deserves its fair share of attention

( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kilmainham_Gaol – a place full of stories, one of the most interesting is that of Charles Parnell … oh, or of the last guy to ever be held, who went on to be the country’s prime minister!)

this was inside, donated years after the close … captures a lot

I actually think Im going to get business cards made up. Theres just something snarky about having a business card for yourself.

the main section of the jail, this part constructed in the 19th century (the rest dates back to 1786, IIRC)

The idea behind the great skylight is that sunshine would cure most ills common in other dungeons.

Ok, maybe the prisoners used it too...

and the door that lead to the execution yard (a pit where none of the jail’s windows could overlook the killings)…

Dear future self: come back and repair high-dynamic range fault.

a moment after i took this picture, i got caught up walking back to the group with the tour guide lady, and i told her all i know about historical jails: the 1856 Boston prison riot was caused by the prisoners being forced to eat the same thing every day: LOBSTER

i said it and thought it was funny, but she had this look like, “fuck i gotta deal with americans…”
