As requested from kij66

List seven songs you are into right now, no matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they’re not any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now. Post these instructions in your livejournal along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they’re listening to.
This is also a tough one for me, since I too keep my iPod on random play… So I’ll do the same as kij66 and note the ones I tend to repeat

1) Irish Drinking Song- Dropkick Murphys
2) Ring of Fire- Johnny Cash
3) Rock your Socks- Tenacious D
4) When I Fall- BareNaked Ladies
5) Bodies- Drowning Pool
6) Euphoria- School of Fish
7) I Love Livin in the City- Fear

An event summary written by two 3DC members…

Posted by on Friday, 23 February, 2007

Last week was Estrella War XXIII, an SCA event which takes place in Arizona. As many of you know, the 3 Drunken Celts got their start in the SCA at Great Western War, and have since been expanding our empire both inside and outside of the SCA.

Well, last week was the first tasting in which the 3 original members were not in charge, and in fact only one was able to even attend! Our “East Coast” contingent (see that’s funny cause Arizona is east of California, but no where near the east coast) decided to take the reigns this go around and put on an Irish Whiskey Tasting as an Official 3DC event.

To hear people talk about it, this tasting was on par with the first one we held some 6 years ago, which will always hold a special place in my heart. This entire week I have been amazed at the feedback I have heard about the Irish tasting, and have been all smiles to think something I had a hand in starting has grown so much, to the point where it is beginning to run its self (ie. without intervention by myself, Raz, or Fergus). It is kind of like watching your child grow up, I suspect… I feel like quite a proud pappa right now.

With that said, the following link will take you to the summary of the tasting event along with the text of the presentation given to begin the tasting and introduce the whiskies provided.

While the write-up is indeed a bit lengthy, it does contain some wonderful bits of information about Irish Whiskies specifically which should help to educate any burgeoning taster.

Boring work post…
