It’s Enya’s birthday today so here’s one of her earliest breakthrough hits.

Before she went solo she sang with traditional Irish band Clannad.

It’s also the anniversary of the 1974 Troubles where 33 civilians were killed and 300 injured when the Ulster Volunteer Force (UVF) detonated four car bombs in Dublin and Monaghan, Republic of Ireland. In happier news, in 2004 the first legal same-sex marriages in the U.S. were performed in Massachusetts.

On Twitter today:

The Flying Spaghetti Monster has really let himself go.

Gratuitous misuse of the cat.

Save this. You will need it one day. You’re welcome.

Apparently there is such a thing as a ninja diet

Sigh. Good grief, people. The audio clip says Laurel and Yanni at the same time. Get a set of decent headphones.

Onto the doings of a certain Polish felid.

Hili: What is a seagull doing on a sports field?
A: If it isn’t playing ball it’s probably looking for worms.

In Polish:

Hili: Co robi mewa na boisku?
Ja: Jeśli nie gra w piłkę, to pewnie szuka robaków.

  1. Enya’s Orinocco Flow will forever to me be the “save the whales” song. I was convinced that that was what she was singing.

  2. Kurt Vonnegut on Laurel and Hardy:

    “I used to laugh my head off at Laurel and Hardy. There is terrible tragedy there somehow. These men are too sweet to survive in this world and are in terrible danger all the time. They could so easily be killed.”

    But what he would have thought of Laurel and Yanni?
