Father Ted and more on North Cregg and FMAD

Donie sent me a link to Father Ted. It’s a funny comedy based in Ireland . I think he is such an indearing character, somewhat naive but with a lot of heart. There these interesting people around him who try their best to pester him. Don’t we all have that same issue with our priests?( I say that coming from a Catholic place, therefore I can relate). There is also this particular video in youtube that I could not watch.

This is what it says:

This video contains content from Channel 4, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds.

And this is how our conversation went:

Me
eeeek it’s been blocked in my country :his video contains content from Channel 4, who has blocked it in your country on copyright grounds.’
03:10Donie
what
omg
that is so f***** up
03:10Me
i think they do that from time to time.
there are also videos i could not watch from other regions in the world
but the first one i saw
03:13Donie
that’s really annoying all the links are channell 4
mad. they are afraid of upsetting people from your country

03:17Me

03:17Donie

03:17Me
i guess they are just being careful…
03:18Donie
your all adults over there
im still surprised
03:18Me
that’s the sad thing about political correctness. it’s always that ‘ you cant do this or do that in fear of upsetting people’.
03:19Donie
here too but we have come a long way
03:19Me
i think american regulations decide what videos to be shown in what countries and since youtube is american owned then they do that
03:19Donie
but an english company made that
our RTE, was too afrid to make it
03:20Me
ic
03:21Donie

03:22Me
i guess it’s a long way to go
but i will try a proxy
aw proxy does not help
03:23Donie
you should write about that, religion is on the way out
people should understand about the Roman history and the biggest story ever told
03:25Me
indeed.

Here is something from North Cregg. I mentioned them a couple of months ago and I think their music is interesting and really beautiful. Check this interview with Christy Leahy out:

Another one is by Four Men and a Dog. Once again I owe this article to Donie Ryan who got me started. Anyway I love the rockin rollin feel of the music.  “Hold On I’m Comin’ has a catchy tune over lively tempo.
