This must be just a gratuitous excuse to write some filthy words in LAUGHJOHNLAUGHS! Blog- I was researching this because the words of my first ever single - "Does my bum look big in this? " contains the word ' ass ' in a line in the third verse. "Ohh please tell me baby do you like my ASS?" which is a fair relationship question imo ...but my G/f says in church circles it is likely regarded as lewd or crude .. hmm I hadn't realized. So here is some interesting material derived from a quick search on the topic - using the search terms ' is the word ass in lyrics considered explicit ' I got some information about the 7 dirty words or seven naughty or filthy words - whatever they may be titled. However if I publish the 7 naughty words in full then I need to mark my blog as explicit which is a shame - so may need to write a tamer version without the highly charged naughty/dirty words. Anyway basically the good news is as follows: I don
ASCAP NY SESSIONS Q&A Name: John Munnelly Band: Laughjohnlaugh Latest album: Unreleased ( Music available on myspace and on my EPK) Website: http://www.myspace. com/laughjohnlaugh EPK: http://www.sonicbids.com/ epk/epk.aspx?epk_id=103702 BLOG: http://laughjohnlaugh. com/ 1.

I also wanted to try the 1 day conference locally in order to see if the longer 3-day conference out on other coast is a worthwhile investment of my time and resources. 2.

Paddy's Day Listicle : Paddy's Day is on 17 March, the supposed date of Saint Patrick's death It's Paddy, never Patty (ugh!) Crisps not chips, Tayto or bust, the rest are mere potato dust. Shamrock has three leaves- never a clover four! Shamrock is Trinitarian: Un, dos, tres! Father, Son & Holy Ghost, the Green, White & Gold of the Tricolor. Got it, good. Bacon 'n Cabbage if ye can, Corned beef 'n' cabbage will definitely do. Lower East side NY style is grand but "have ye got any Brown sauce?" Keep your heart green too - let it stay big & soft, don't let Irish compassion for the little ones calcify like it seems to have with various Hannity, O'Reilly & Ryan's into a stiff necked, hard-hearted corporate Minotaur of a different color. "What is the craic?" - the crack is high spirited fun and a felt 'esprit de human corps' about making the most of life and a
