I hadn't heard of them before, thanks for the recommendation! 😃

Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. - H.L. Mencken

No mind to think. No will to break. No voice to cry suffering.

The only thing worse than europop-shanties in German is tangos in German. German language should stick to what it's made for -- metal, punk, what's in between those two, and similar muzik to invade Poland to.  🤟

Nostalgia time... some old German rock from my teenage years (when music was something you bought as vinyl records!) 😎

book am reading and referenced in another thread reminded us o' regina spektor, a jewish soviet era russian emigre to the US. the school in the video is where her mother, a former professor o' music in russia, teaches music to elementary school children. lucky kids.

thought her cover o' "while my guitar gently weeps" for an animated film were great. 

HA! Good Fun!

Because I haven't posted some Rammstein in a while. Not surprised that an Australian mining corporation was involved in the disaster. They're **** when it comes to things like safety and environmental protection in Australia. Why would they behave differently when abroad (even if they don't own the government of Romania like they do the local government down here)?

I liked other songs from Pyromania more, but this video is the one where Joe Elliot's professionally cut mutt-hair flips and lands around his face in a such a perfect way so as to give a gal a 4 minute crush. :lol: 


I did not have even a 4 minute crush on anyone in this band, nor was I a big listener of them, but I did like some of their songs.

More Eivør. I think I did post one of songs in the past, so here is another one. This Faoerese lady covers a very wide range of styles (not all of them to my liking, but every now and then I feel my self caught up in playing one of her songs on repeat).
