    Mannex, All jiu-jitsu forms have their own style of swordsmanship. We practice with bo-ken, the wooden sword, and square off with metal blades. I only took the sword form as I was already studying aikido, which is a jiu-jitsu form all by itself.
    Bows are a pain to make until you get used to it. Plains indian bows are incredibly strong from the glue/sinew backing. The arrows are fun, but knapping the flint is the hard part. Flint tips cut cleaner than any metal blade could ever cut, and are even finer an edge. You want a real pain? Try building a muzzleloader from scratch! AAAAAAAAAGGGGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!

    I like to knit, garden, and imagine long, tortursome deaths for my "friends".

    I like to play trad. Irish tunes on my tin whistles. I listen to a wide variety of music - ska, punk, emo, Irish/scottish trad., original score soundtracks, some classical, swing, jazz.
    I tend to like Celtic style music, but as much as I like the traditional stuff, all I have on CD is more of a Celtic/Fusion sort of thing... Clannad, Loreena McKennitt, and the like.

    Any suggestions to add to my collection?
    Hmm.. Well, personally I lean a bit(ok, ok, a lot...) towards stuff with flute/whistle, because I play, but here's a good general starter list:
    -Flook - if you buy one cd it must be one of theirs. Words cannot describe the incredible awesomeness.....
    -Michael McGoldrick & John McSherry's At First Light cd is incredible, Michael McGoldrick's solo stuff is pretty good too, but not all of it is completely trad., some jazzy, fusion stuff.
    -Tannahill Weavers - Great scottish trad band
    -Cherish the Ladies - all-female Irish band
    -Cheiftains are good; their older stuff is best;
    -Lunasa is good, although, personally, I only like their first, self-titled album.
    -Alan & John Kelly's Fourmilehouse is some of the purest Irish trad I've ever heard. Incredible.
    -Clann An Drumma is a uber cool pipe & drum band w/ some sweeeet percussion
    -Siúcra - irish; singer has a great voice
    -Dervish - irish
    -Old Blind Dogs - scottish
    -Kate Rusby
    -The wooden flute obsession cds from WorldTrad is comprised of a large number of irish trad flute players, or music including flute. great stuff.

    if you like sea shanties, drinking songs and other fun, sing-along stuff:
    -Darby O' Gill
    -Great Big Sea
    -Stone Soup Band
    -Barleyjuice

    good online radio stations:
    LiveIreland - channel 1 - irish trad.
    Highlander Radio - good, all around celtic stuff

    that should get you off to a good start. Some of the bands I listed are indie, so their cds are a little harder to find, but nowhere near impossible.

    Of course!

    yeh, XP isn't as bad as its predecessors, but it's still windows.
