Emo Village is Real

I know pretty  much everyone on Irish Tumblr seems to have come across my post about the unintentionally scary Welcome to Kill Village sign but I’d like to bring to your attention that we also have Emo Village in Co. Laois, Ireland. I always wonder if tourists drive through there expecting everyone to be blaring MCR and only ending their texts in Rawr XD. The headlines about that place are hilarious.

Emo is also the name of a well known petrol station chain here but for some reason there are no Emo petrol stations actually in Emo.

My fave thing about the petrol stations is that their logo unintentionally kinda looks like those emo side fringes:

I think I might start a Tumblr series on funny place names here

Sole Party - Day 6 - Shenanigans with companions!

I already drew all my faves in one of the other posts, so I wanted to include some of the others in this one. :)

PS: I know Strong has armor on his arms, but I was too lazy to draw it. :P Also, in case it was confusing, the Strong image is not related to the fight between Cait & MacCready. Just an extra doodle to include the big buy.

Is it not possible that a place could have a huge affection for those who dwell there? Perhaps your place loves having you there. It misses you when you are away and in its secret way rejoices when you return. Could it be possible that a landscape might have a deep friendship with you? That it could feel your presence and feel the care you extend towards it? Perhaps your favorite place feels proud of you …

Set on a rocky outcrop in a stunning and lonely landscape, these Neolithic tombs date to  around 3,400 BC. Tools, beads, bones and cremated  human remains were found inside.

“So we stuck the flagpole in the grass and we sang my country, ‘tis of thee with our hands on our hearts. And we watched the fireworks go off all the way down the boardwalk.”
