Dolores O’Riordan: Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam dílis

Greetings and Merry Christmas to my fellow Orthodox readers (if any remain for this rather defunct page)!

I sadly acknowledge today’s death announcement of Cranberries lead Dolores O’Riordan. I was a fan. Six years ago, I ran a Cranberries week of posts to celebrate my attending their concert at the 9:30 Club. She was so young—such a pity. I somewhat expect the deaths of boomer celebrities, especially given their lifestyle choices over the decades, but O’Riordan’s untimely passing is a most unpleasant surprise.

Here is the Cranberries’ “When You’re Gone”:

Pray for her soul.

I still check on this page every now and then! Hope things are going well for you.

Also, are you familiar with Jordan Peterson? I’m reading his 12 Rules for Life and his view of what God actually is is kind of interesting. He’s trying to rescue modern people from the kind of nihilism that lead to the Soviet Union.

Weird synchronism strikes again. Last night, I planned to write the following post, which features a short exchange on video between Tucker Carlson and Dr. Peterson, and then I found your comments. I am familiar with Dr. Peterson and judge any academic man who maintains his dignity among the muck admirable and worthy of praise. I hope that you are doing well, too, and I apologize for my scant offerings over the past years. I no longer have the same motivation to write; even commenting on current events makes me feel so miasmically polluted. That is a poor excuse, as there is a practical infinity of interesting and wondrous topics. So, that leaves me with admitting how lazy and worthless I am. Anyway, good luck in your reading. I just started Adam Bede, and I continually marvel at Evans’ insight into the human condition. Take care.

Oh wow that is quite a coincidence! And I hear you, that is definitely understandable. Glad you can appreciate Peterson. I have never heard of Adam Bede but will have to check it out.
