Scandinavians like to take the piss out of each other on a regular basis. The've had a long history of incredibly bloody wars and many many stereotypes that range from funny to down right cruel.
But since the weather is too damn poor to wage a proper war it usually just resorts to name calling and rude gestures rather than war.


This clip is from a Norwegian satire program, giving the Danish language a proper thrashing.

And yes, to the outsider, Dansih really sounds like that.


Note: the only teligible the they say in Danish is "we understand each other not"

However, this thread will probably end with Shawarma telling me it's older than the earth itelf and we'll proceed making fun of the Danish language...Because it really is ugly and guttural at it's worst.

For you non-Scandinaivans, I guess this will also be the thread were you have fun with Scandinavian stereotypes (Danish in particular if you can tell the diference)

Heh, most Danes do indeed speak English. Albeit, with an incredibly goofy accent.

As for the language itself, it has a method of spelling so counterintuitive that it only could have been invented by a Frenchman (lol irony)


e.g. "g" and "d" can have soft pronunciations hwen put in the middle of the word. the latter involving you sticking out your tongue. "R" is not pronunced by rolling your tongue, instead it done in the back of your throat. And then there are their confusing vowels such as æ (a e), ø (o e) and å (o a)

Danish is basically a mix of ancient Scandinavian tongue and platdeutch.

The Danes have a simple phrase to check if you can pronunce their shit right:

"Rød grød med fløde" it means "Red porridge with cream"

Danes are xenophobic pig-fuckers. (i heard this from a Swede, it made me laugh)

Yes, Varg Vikernes. You're really doing your bit for the Nordic race by spending most of your adult life in prison, adopting the name of a rather limp collaborator (to whit, the boy Varg styles himself as 'Varg Qisling Larsson Vikernes', after Vidkun Qisling, whose surname is still used in the UK as an insult for traitors), spouting all sorts of weird and ill-informed pagan/fascist/UFO bollocks and not being there for your daughter as she grows up.

The Burzum fiasco reached epic heights when www.Burzum.com was set up. Half the members were far right neo-pagan totalitarians and the other half were what could only be described as left-wing 'useful idiots', one of whom even went so far as to compare Varg to Bob Marley and Ayrton Senna! All of which sat uneasily next to articles glorfying Russian NSBM and church/ethnic bashing, as well as glorifying some faggoth who made himself, as it were, 'an hero'.

Alas, none of this high comedy (including doctored photos that make the lead singer of Cradle Of Filth look like a paedophile) could last, as it all fell down due to the presence of 'Jessica'. Now, having e-mailed her, I can tell you she's a bit defensive and up her own arse. She's also fit as fuck. Alas, she's also half Chinese, half Canadian, which had the Aryan Storm Vikings in quite a lather when they found out. The end result was that Varg's minions took control of the site, told the useful idiots to fuck off and left an editorial declaring that anyone who disagreed was a jew and would be sent to the gas ovens. As you do.

We never had this problem with A-Ha.

Wow that place is crappy
quote hidden because it will hurt you


BAlthough the thought has crossed my mind several times,and I have to admit that it sounds and feels attractive, I realised that ending your life is a standar way of admitting defeat in the battlefield! It's easy to run away from the challenges in life,at least easier than deciding to stand and face whatever comes.No matter if you succeed or not, you'll have tried,and I think that's what counts!Life is like a big epic campain: some battles you win,others you lose,but you must never give up,no matter how bad the situation looks.The worst enemy comes from our own psyche,is the disappointment and desperation we all sometimes experience.Life is a path full of thorns and overgrown vine,difficult to cross,but that's what makes it so wonderfull and addictive!
In our mythology,Hercules met a god-like woman who introduced herself as Glory.She showed him two paths,the one big and wide,straight and well made,full of beautifull trees and flowers.The other was dark,slippery,full of thorns and poisonous traps.She told him to choose the path he would follow,which would be the path he would also follow in life.He chose the second path without hesitation,and she told him that he chose wisey,because he chose the path of glory. It may be difficult to follow,but that's how things are,how life is! Through all the difficulties we emerge stronger,more determined and more wise.We'll meet many difficulties that may tampt us to throw the towel and quit,but we must find the strength and carry on living and fighting.So I don't consider suicide an act of a highly inteligent creature,on the opposite I consider it an act of cowardness and stupidity. Just imagine what Varg would have to do if he thought like that,being locked up in a cell based on false accusations,being the perfect scapegoat that the system was desperately looking for,so that they can charge him with all sorts of "politically incorrect" accusations and crimes.Facing this uneven battle that leads to certain defeat,having no chance even to be heard by objective judges and be treated fairly or having no chance of hoping to get even a parole after years of serving in their shithole, he should have commited suicide long ago,the only thing remaining by now would be his bones..! Instead he most probably chose to stand up and fight!If he ended his life he would do exaxctly what the system wants,it wants him silent that's why they locked him up in a hole, so that they can stop him making music and speaking his mind openly.He was going against the main-stream and everything that is different from the standards set by them is a potential danger against the hypnotised masses because it can revive them!!!So,even if the odds were against him,he chose to continue fighting with his only weapon left that still frightens them,his own existence!They may have locked him up,thus having control over his physical existence,but they have totally failed to control him spiritually,because the spirit cannot be contained by iron bars!!! Angry
For me,that's the perfect example of the triumph of will,never giving up the fight-that is life itself-no matter how poor the odds may seem.Never quit and give them the pleasure of having broken you to the core.Gather your courage and carry on,and Glory will finally be yours!!! Smiley.

Friedrich Nietzsche remains an enigma to this day. Rejecting objectivity, he appealed to the subjective sense of greatness and beauty in the individual in his appeal for a new society, with non-material and non-egomaniacal goals. He overthrew the illusion of morality, and defecated thoroughly upon the idea of Judeo-Christian moral supremacy. He embraced nature red in tooth and claw. Despite all of this seemingly negative outlook, much like the darkness and moribund misanthropy of black metal, his goal was ultimately one of renewal and hope for life, but one that acknowledged for life to rise we must reject the parasitic, delusional and controlling.

Some black metal bands, notably the tedious Judas Iscariot and the epic Gorgoroth, have openly embraced Nietzschean concepts like triumph of the will, the philosophical hammer, and "total war against Christianity." Others seem simply to echo the ideas he praises, such as rise of genetically supreme individuals through natural selection and a rejection of Social Darwinism, and a praise of unique native cultures worldwide. It is then quite possible that both in the first wave of black metal, and in whatever meagre remnants of it exist today, the philosophies of Friedrich Nietzsche have found a philosophical voice. From here (http://www.burzum.com/forum/YaBB.pl?num=1187800848).

Yes, because Nietzsche really liked loud, frenzied, aggressive art...

Any genre that takes "seeking out" will usually have listeners that are smarter than average, but that isn't saying much in the first place.

Second of all, Black Metal is just one big EPIC FAIL full of lulz.

It takes itself seriously, something that not even Slayer or Cannibal Corpse do, and they think that by burning churches something magical will happen? What?

Then there is a complete lack of a low end in the music and the face paint. If the music was any good, you wouldn't need any gimmicks.

Use mainly the same words, although there are unique words of course, slightly different grammar. In Danish, you'd say "My bicycle", in Norwegian you'd say "the bicycle mine" to indicate a bike belonging to you. Three languages look almost identical in writing when prononciation is not an issue.

The Norwegian comedians change voices for ccomedic effect. Also, they're Norwegian and therefore suck at speaking English.

They sort have a point though - Denmark, being an island kingdom, has tons of different dialects for a population of 5.5 million, some of which seem quite incomprehensible to people from other parts of the country.

Why do Jazz vocals suck so much? I've never heard a jazz song with vocals and thought "Yeah, they fit really well." It's always "God damn, shut the fuck up and let me listen to the music!"

At least with Death Metal, it's just a bunch of angry grunts (most of the time). If they had Jazz vocals that were just vocal notes, kind of like that one chick on Dark Side of the Moon by Pink Floyd (forget which songs, but you should listen to the whole album anyway), then that would be much better.

I've never heard good jazz vocals. The lyrics are either EXTREMELY repetative, extremly cheesy (yeah baby I love you baby yeah yeah baby love you I do), and pretty much always lack any sort of effort. What I mean by the last one is that they try too hard to seem completely nonchalant and cool. It doesn't seem natural in the least. Moreover, it seems like they just aren't trying. You don't have them exercising their voice. If it's a slow "ballad" type song, then that makes sense, but even in the fast, upbeat songs I don't hear them going along with the instruments and just going balls out with the vocals.

There's just no power in the vocals. Even the blues guys will let out a powerful yelp every now and then.

I'm not going to disagree here. Just going to point out that's not what he does.
Then you're going to point out he's making drum noises with his mouth. To which I'll say that's not his emphasis unlike spluttermachines.




So is singing death metal. Angela Gassow practices daily and takes lessons.

That still doesn't make them very musical in most contexts, does it? Maybe the vocals the jazz guys are doing are EXACTLY what they want and it took them years to get there. That just means that what they want is shit. I guess at that point it becomes a matter of taste.

I wouldn't fault anybody for not liking DM vocals. So I have the right to not like some guy just literally talking about how horny -- I'm sorry, in love -- he is.


What's she's doing there is very impressive technically,
and yes that would sound like ass a capella.
Jazz is dificult in a different way, I'm sure you know this since you've probably practised their weird scales

I think I read an article about her, if it is her she had to take a long break because she was growling wrong and it was eating her vocal chords.

I just pointed out your first example was underwhelming.



Not once did I say that. I even said I understand completely when people don't like Death Metal or the heavier stuff.

Besides that, I said I listen to Jazz, Blues, and other stuff that hasn't been mentioned here.


Your tone got to me.. I see now you were just trolling to get some stuff you could check out (and berate).


That said.

LOL.

"Is it okay to spin here?" </Sandy>

Anyway, I have a soft spot for Eddie Jefferson. Couldn't find "Moody's Mood For Love" so you're gonna have to make due with "Bennie's From Heaven":

Right. Something from 1936 is a great sample of Jazz.

A white guy in 1936, no less.

Phail. EPIC PHAIL.

The track was from the Mills Brothers, who are very good and very black. They had a gimmick of providing the brass sounds with their voices.

Cab Calloway was a fantastic vocalist.

Oscar Aleman was a guitarist first and singer second, but he was great at it and had a fairly unique scat style.

Boswell Sisters are great and as an added bonus you can often hear Eddie Lang playing accompaniment.

The Cats and the Fiddle were a vocal jive group similar to The Spirits of Rhythm. A lot of their material sounds suspiciously similar to early rock.

You listen to Dragonforce.

Actually, I don't. I listened to one of their albums once (instead of a song here, a song there) and concluded that it is actually just one song.
