Congratulations Ireland

by Chris Bertram on March 21, 2009

Congratulations to Ireland on the “first Irish grand slam”: in the 6 nations since 1948. I’d buy Henry, Maria and Kieran a drink if they were within drink-buying range. A very dramatic last minute of the final match, too: it could have gone either way.

SXSW: free tunes

by John Holbo on March 21, 2009

The South By Southwest music festival is underway. Wouldn’t it be fun to be there? I guess the rest of us will have to make-do with this free mix, courtesy of NPR’s All Songs Considered. “Furr”, by Blitzentrapper, is a great song. And Amazon has a different free mix. I like “You’ll Disappear”, by The Phenomenal Hand-Clap Band.

You could also download 6 gigs of free music (perfectly legally!) via BitTorrent.
