Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Pissed off with these idiots (On Hometowns and Why Yours Sucks)
Not least of all due to me being from Limerick originally (i'm from the county not the city, but still)
Fair enough the place is a shit hole but so is most of the even slightly urbanized Ireland (i'm biast being from the middle of the countryside miles from everywhere where i was happy, and now living in a town with asshole neighbors and unhappy)
And the fact that my neighbor and best friend who is a traveler http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irish_Traveller and one of the few people around here i actually like, drives me mad singing "fuck your Mitsubishi i have a horse outside" her ethnic group is otherwise unimportant but just the fact that i have a Mitsubishi and she has a horse outside, i just felt the need to explain why she has a horse in a town its a cultural thing. Like me with my old over-sized 4x4 im a farmer... simple as... you can stick both of us in a town but we are what we are.
It was funny to begin with but it is annoying.
And to get back to the point what the hell kind of a message is that to send out about a place? the madness of limerick that is depicted here is isolated to one part of the city which is a tiny part of the city, the city is a tiny part of the land that is the county of limerick.
The only time this song was ever funny was when my friend who is a guitarist sang it directed at me but it was in context because he had a row with a non national lover of mine because i told him my friend was gay to avoid an ass kicking of massive proportions
