Current Music: Dropkick Murphys - The Warriors Code

If you ever wished you could somehow pop in a CD and feel like you were watching The Boondock Saints without resorting to a bootlegged soundtrack, the 2005 album "The Warriors Code" by Dropkick Murphys might be for you. Enamored with the theme song to the new Angie Harmon/Sasha Alexander show Rizzoli & Isles I looked it up - a lively symphonic rendition from this Irish Punk album. Once I heard the original, I forgot all about the theme song, downloaded the album from iTunes, and have been listening to it non-stop.

Dropkick Murphys! <3
I also love Flogging Molly!

So so so funny you posted this today.
I got my box set of the Boonsock Saints I and II and watched them over the weekend! So so so good!

I've been waiting for the box set to show up to one of our local retailers - I too want to watch them back-to-back.

And thanks for the tip! I'll check out Flogging Molly soonest :D

I wasn't a big fan of Boondock Saints. I liked the premise of the film and what they set out to do, but I'm not a big Dafoe fan. I try to be. Oh, I try. I just don't like him. As such..

But I know that Boondock Saints is considered to be Dafoe's best film...

I will say, however, that I do have appreciation for Dropkick Murphys because of the film The Departed; the track I'm Shipping Up to Boston was prominently featured in the film.

I'm curious to hear your thoughts (preferably through a blog post, but email/IM works fine too) on The Red Violin.

There was more to Boondock Saints than Defoe. That being said, since the majority consensus of the follow-up All Saints Day is that its as good as the first, by your own admission, you'd likely love it. Give it a try.

Also, I hadn't heard that about Dafoe. Given his role in the film, that's pretty fucking odd.

I was expecting the link to The Departed to be a synopsis of the film, not a link to a purchase. Generally speaking, I prefer to know a little something about it prior to buying it. Next time, try IMDB. They do a really good job of supplying that type of information.

I do have a lot of music queued up that I fully expect to get to by the end of the year, but don't hold me to it. However, I think next I'll check out sacredyuja's suggestion of Flogging Molly. This quarter is turning out to be the best ever! I freaking *blasted* "The Warriors Code" across the sandlot during the games this weekend. Last night's game was two full hours. We had twelve people on each team - a new record for the sandlot and we're playing every day this week and into the weekend. BAM!

You are more than welcome to my copy of the Departed. It is even still sealed in the factory packaging.

In a totally unrelated topic check this out.

That's a horrible story!

Do you remember Lee Bloomfield???

Who could ever forget him?

The man who buried his own wife's birth control package with her name on it for an archeology lesson when we were at Glenrose.

I dug up a bottle of Excedin. If you recall, part of our assignment was to pretend we didn't know what it was we had, and to suggest alternate uses for it.

Sadly, mine had directions written on it :(

Did it surprise you that Bloomfield fucked up??? It didn't surprise me. And I think I would take a baseball bat to that parent Steve Jean who left Colt on the top of that mountain. What a fucking coward!!!

You were drunk when you wrote this.

No, I haven't had anything to drink in a week. What would make you say that?
ehowton at 2010-08-12 22:01 (UTC) (Link)
You were uncharacteristically harsh, and you openly cursed. Nothing wrong with that, just...unlike you.

Bloomfield always ignored his students being beaten and tortured in his class by Luciano. Then he couldn't get his lazy ass up that mountain to supervise and make sure all his students got down safely.

That ridiculous man if you can call him that left that boy on top of that mountain knowing he was afraid of heights. As the adult chaperon he should have been the last down. Then he covered up the fact he knew the boy had fallen.

Granted this incident happened over 12 years ago but it still pisses me off!!!

This is great music for any kind of physical activity. And reminds me that I still need to see the second installment of the Boondock Saints.

I watched half of part two...but passed out after a bowl... my ever-so-responsible mother mailed it back to Netflix thinking it was overdue.... I guess add "ever-so-not-in-the-now" :/

Hey, at least you've seen the first one.
