Commitments Day

I realize I'm posting about St. Patrick's Day a little too late, depending which time zone you're reading this in. Even if you're on the east coast, like I am, you might have already committed hard to St. Paddy and started drinking at 11am, which means you'll be taking a nap soon. But if you're a nerd like me who's not going out, and/or you still need evening plans, let me suggest a different type of commitment. Specifically: THE Commitments.

If you've never seen The Commitments, the 1991 classic about a group of working-class Dubliners who come together to start a soul band, tonight is your night. Not only is the soundtrack killer, but it's full of great early-nineties fashion choices like these:

Also, you can enjoy aww-ing at a baby-faced Glen Hansard:

So much better than barfing up green beer later, right? Although... I wouldn't be opposed to you sipping a nice whiskey on the rocks while watching. It's even streaming on Netflix!

Also, one important question: if I made a fake band t-shirt for And And And, would you buy it? Just curious.... :)

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
