That's the dirty secret of the Catholic church: The nuns are pretty cool and actually dedicated to community service.
I used to do IT work for the local Archdiocese. I met a lot of clergy. Most of the nuns were cool and some were the absolute worst. One of them was really nice to me but a terror to everyone else.
Same with the priests (minus the handful that were accused of sexual abuse). Best dude I ever met while working there was a priest who eventually passed away due to cancer. He was in his 70s and he told me his favorite Christmas movie of all-time was "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation". Hearing this guy recite the "shitter's full" line verbatim and then crack up was the best.
The biggest piece of shit in the entire organization (minus the abusers) was the Archbishop. Just a totally unreasonable, awful, miserable piece of shit.

What a poser, if you want real punk accordion you've got to get a time machine and go to early 90s Austria.
(I'm mostly kidding about her being a poseur though, she's pretty good)
Eh.. that stupid Dropkick Murphys song is as bad as Bon Iver if you have a guitar. Easy to learn and way over played.
Full disclosure: I've never heard the Dropkick Murphys and just skipped around to see if she could actually play.
I'm not too big a fan of TMBG. Purple Toupee is decent. I liked Flood a lot in 8th grade but by the end of 9th it kind of sounded too precious and their lyrics were too self-consciously "quirky," and I haven't been able to get back in to the since. They're like the music version of the worst aspects of Joss Wheadon (who I'm similarly ambiguous about). They are definitely good at what they do, though.
THAT"S NOT WHAT YOU SAID BEFORE!!!11
But seriously, I totally see what you mean -- sometimes they try a little too hard.
Not every TMBG album is worth listening to, but OZ you're wrong to not love them. Seriously, you're just wrong there dude.
