New, improved, Alternative Irish National Anthem - brought to you by Gombeen Nation

I know you're sick of this...  I really do.

But I have been grappling with a camera and Corel VideoStudio Ultimate since yesterday evening.  I have no idea what's going on in the world, or Ireland - except that in the latter case it's probably  more of the same.  Same as it ever was.

Anyway, the new Irish national Anthem is now ready - and it is about to become a You Tube viral sensation... not.  

But there you go.  

Whereas the punk movement in 70's Britain questioned orthodoxies, Ireland and its spoilt youth is still a quantum leap from sticking a safety pin through Dev's - or Bertie's, or Endas, or Michael D's  - appendages.

But there you go.  It takes time here.  

Maybe a couple of generations. 

While you're waiting.

Hey! Very nice! I think I'm gonna share this. Stay creative GM! ;)

Thanks Nenad. I know you're no slouch when it comes to this sort of thing, so your compliment means a lot.

I was using Corel VideoStudio (I am new to video editing) but it was a bit tricky to synch the video with the audio track. Maybe there is an easier way to do it.

I'm using Sony Vegas Pro or VideoPad Editor. For quick and basic stuff: Windows Movie Maker. But I'm not a huge video-guy anyway. Ask me about recoding and I'll tell you more than you probably want to know ... ;)

I might do that sometime, Ned!

HI GM, brilliant stuff. You are quite the creative type then, with the music and blog. Keep up the excellent work.

That's great GM! Well done!

Thanks Ella, DC3. We're getting all multimedia here!

I feel your pain GM. But keep fighting (and posting) someday some small face will ask what did you do during the war daddy? Assuming you actually know (and claim ) that face you will be proud to say ... I made the effort to annoy the bastards
