Q&A | Hex Hue
Q&A | .@hexhue talks to TLMT about her new single 'Aquiver'
What’s the last song you listened to? I’m in the studio mixing the next song so I’ve listened to that about 700 times today – apart from that it was Zombie by Orla Gartland which I love – loving songs with a bit of a drive in them at the min. What artist or album has gotten you through lockdown the most? Hmmmmm that’s a tough one – I’ve turned to lots of different artists at different times…

My least favourite Otherworldly being in medieval Irish literature is Manannán, because every time I write his name, I put the wrong number of Ns in it.

W.B. Yeats
In the great cities we see so little of the world, we drift into our minority. In the little towns and villages there are no minorities; people are not numerous enough. You must see the world there, perforce. Every man is himself a class; every hour carries its new challenge. When you pass the inn at the end of the village you leave your favourite whimsy behind you; for you will meet no one who can share it. We listen to eloquent speaking, read books and write them, settle all the affairs of the universe. The dumb village multitudes pass on unchanging; the feel of the spade in the hand is no different for all our talk: good seasons and bad follow each other as of old. The dumb multitudes are no more concerned with us than is the old horse peering through the rusty gate of the village pound. The ancient map-makers wrote across unexplored regions, 'Here are lions.' Across the villages of fishermen and turners of the earth, so different are these from us, we can write but one line that is certain, 'Here are ghosts.'

Don't be a part of the problem, BE the solution! If someone calls YOU a racist, THEY are the racists, trying to shut you down. Those who HATE want to put everyone in a "box," make you feel weak/powerless & hateful of others with different "labels." What terrifies those bastards is ALL people UNITED, ALL LIVES MATTER! So, YOU go and make a difference, be the example, lead by example👍

Best song ever is stuck in my head
"I'm at Amanda's weddin, In a church on Thomas Street
I'm lookin at a bridesmaid, and she lookin back at me
And when the service ends, ask her if she wants a lift
back to the hotel, and if it goes well finger and a shift
She says Fitzy drives a Mitzy, and he offered me a spin
Enda have a Honda, so I might just go with him
and Darren Gibney said he bring me in his Subaru
so what the fuck would make you think I'd wanna go with you
I said Fuck your Honda Civic, I've a horse outside
fuck your Subaru, I have a horse outside
and fuck your Mitsubishi, I've a horse outside
if you're lookin for a ride I've got a horse outside
She said I don't believe ya
I said it's fuckin true
I swapped him for a bag of yokes in 1992
I don't need insurance, I don't need no parkin space
and if you try to clamp my horse he'll kick you in the face
I don't pay no tax, fuck NCT
you'll arrive in style if you ride with me
and the boys are walkin over, jinglin their keys
I look the fuckers up and down and give them one of these 🖕
I said Fuck your Honda Civic, I've a horse outside
fuck your Subaru, I have a horse outside
and fuck your Mitsubishi, I've a horse outside
if you're lookin for a ride I've a horse outside
Giddy up now baby, bless my soul
I rode the fucker round a field back since he was a foal
He runs a bit like Shergar, and he jumps like Tír na nÓg
He looks like Billy Piper after half a bag of coke
and the boys are lookin jealous, as I lead yer one away
and just before I close the door I look at her and say
Would you be my girl, and she says I will of course
if ya grab me by the ponytail and ride me like a horse
ya!
fuck your Subaru, I have a horse outside
Fuck your Honda Civic, I've a horse outside
and fuck your Mitsubishi, I've a horse outside
if you're lookin for a ride I've a horse outside"

Medieval Irish Nettle Soup
Today, I'll be taking a look at a staple of Irish medieval cuisine: the humble nettle soup. Late spring and early Summer is the ideal time to make this dish, as the nettle leaves used here won't have matured fully, and retain a soft, lighter texture than older woodier leaves. Plus they won't sting your hands as badly as mature nettles. Plenty of Irish families have their own takes on this recipe, and this is influenced by my family's take on the tradition!
youtube
In any case, let's now take a look at The World That Was! Follow along with my YouTube video, above!
Ingredients 2-3 cups nettle leaves 1 onion, minced 2-3 cloves garlic (or two bulbs of wild garlic, minced) chives (for decoration) butter 1/2 cup milk/double cream 500ml water or stock salt pepper
Method
1 - Chop and cook the Garlic and Onion
To begin with, we need to peel and chop a whole onion, before tossing this into a pot with some melted butter. You can of course use oil, but dairy products was (and still is) a major part of Irish culinary traditions - so try and use Irish butter here if you can.
In any case, let your onion sauté away for a couple of minutes until it turns translucent and fragrant. When it hits this point, toss in a couple of cloves of crushed garlic - or some wild garlic if you have any!
2 - Deal with the Nettles Next, ball up some nettles and chop it roughly with a knife. Be careful, as the leaves and stems of this plant has stinging fibres (which will get denatured and broken down when it's cooking).
Nettles act like spinach when you're cooking them, so have about 2-3 times more than what you think you'll need on hand. Add your chopped nettles into the pot, and let them cook down before adding the rest!
3 - Cook Soup When all of your nettle leaves have cooked down, pour in 500ml of soup stock (or water) into the pot. Then, toss in about a half a cup of whole milk, or double cream if you have it. Mix this together gently, before putting this onto a high heat. Bring it to a rolling boil, before turning it down to low until it simmers. Let the whole thing simmer away for about an hour.
Serve up hot in a small bowl, garnish with some chives or seasonal herbs, and dig in!
The finished soup is very light and flavourful, but quite filling for what it is! It's another variation on a medieval pottage, with ingredients that could have been easily foraged in the spring and summer. As it can be made with only a few ingredients, it could have formed the basis of more complex dishes - such as the addition of more vegetables, or meat products.
Given how little the dish has changed from antiquity to modernity, it's likely that the basics of this soup go back to pre-historic Irish culinary traditions.

It is the most shabby government I have ever come across, they are so cynical and so untrustworthy, I don't think anybody would trust them. Society needs to move on but on the basis of truth and justice. You cannot do it by hiding the past and this government is more concerned with backbench Tory MPs with military constituencies than actually looking after the victims of the past.
SDLP leader Colum Eastwood  on rumoured plans of UK government to ban future prosecutions of British soldiers who served in Northern Ireland.

Skellig Peek
Now’s time to share a trinity of images from a morning spent about the Skellig Islands May 2014. Pam and I have many stories from that day, a favorite is from the parking lot of Portmagee where we met the fast boat to the island. I prepared for the day by making a reservation for our ride. We traveled from Killarney, where an early morning breakfast feast spread by The Killarney Royal Hotel…

Carve the Runes
We’ve just released our latest album, Carve the Runes. In these tracks, we explore iron age and pre medieval history and mythologies, using mostly real or sampled medieval and Viking era acoustic instruments. We have used drones and repetition often in our music but here we’ve dug deeper, working to attain a ritualistic feel to some of the tracks. Recently, we’ve been listening to artists such…
