- That sounds like a form of playing pretend as a kid. >&q…
Random Interesting Facts...
except the shamans dont actually harm one another. its a big no no for finnish shamans to actually do that since they are supposed to be healers. its basically just seeing who knows what and who knows how to defeat the other. aka
"i know how to control fire"
"well i know how to turn this entire fucking town into a swamp"
except in song form...the most famous battle of these was described in kalevala where väinämöinen and some other kid whose name i forget battled. väinämöinen being a god, and extremely petty fucker; nearly drowned the other guy in a swamp.
That sounds like it'd be entertaining as hell. I imagine them all being drunk as fuck on ancient ale or something, and just making a big show of it all.
i suppose...tho should be noted that the songs can vary between 10 seconds long to 8 minutes long..i think the longest one i remember is either the song of fire or song of metal. both being about 5 to 10 minutes long... shortest one i kind of dont recall is the one for snow storms which was about 20 seconds long.. and most songs tend to be rather slow sung..so it might not be as exiting as one would imagine.
Aw man I was expecting them roaring at each other surrounded by bonfires with dudes pounding war drums and a bunch of people in a whole festival environment. I'm vaguely disappointed
i mean they can roar i suppose...most of it is just traditional singing tho
this one is for the birth of iron
skip to 14.00 for the birth of fire. it has drums, is a lot faster. but the singer isnt exactly roaring.
That's still pretty cool tho
i know right.
i absolutely adore folk music. and old school magic. and this is both
I love folk music, and Scandinavia produces some of my favourites. I could listen to Kulning for hours
cow calling. used to listen to grandma doing it back in the day my grandfolks still had animals in their farm.
also i should note finland isnt part of skandinavia..idk if you meant that you like scandinavian music or that you believed finland was part of skandinavia..either way sorry.its just a pet peevee of mine and would bother me to no end if i didnt say anything. (also also: there a similiar herding call in the second youtube link i sent you along the 13 to 11 minutes mark)
I knew something I said wasn't right...
Historically though, weren't the cultures quite similar?
Also there's only one link and it has no 13 to 11 minute mark
there is two. the other one is in film form (i mean the previous links i gave..i just added the devils moose as an after thought)
and yes and no..finland had its own religion, customs,language and culture.but it has mixed a lot since finland was part of sweden for some 500+ years...cant exactly recall how long but i think we were added to sweden somewhere after the year 1000....and we went to russia in 1700 century..or was it 18th century...
I didn't spot the url there. I must be blind. Mad interesting stuff tho
affects us all i suppose.
and yeah it is. too bad there isnt that much material available on finnish folk songs and paganism since it was always passed on via oral tradition and most of that already died out during the northern crusades and shit...

- ********* of that wasn't run by black people for a pretty long…
They ran it for a long time, got to mudhuts and stayed that way, we intervened, we intervened a different way and gave them industry, left them and taught them how to improve themselves and let them keep the infrastructure we set up, and then they returned to mudhuts, but with sheet metal in the construction now.
- Holy **** haha

the more you know
Drill Sergeants/Instructors that I've met describe their job as "breaking down boys and building up men where they used to be."
You're wrong but also not wrong. They help motivate you and scare you into making sure you do what you're suppose to do especially in something serious as losing your gun
- da comrade
- I think it's more a situation of "well, you're ****** six…
Yeah. Like protect your boots from molten metal, so some other Red Army soldier can wear those later.
Don't try to logically correct this sentence, because logic is capitalistic propaganda.
Liquefied human flesh and viscera is easier to clean off boots than molten metal, after all
