Dear Finnish folk
I am a Texan kid who owns a kantele and I am wanting to learn about the runolaulu
Someone please help me out. Information on what it is, what kind of form it takes in the music, anything would be appreciated.
Also, earlier yesterday I saw someone post on the finland tag that the only thing they care about from Finland is the metal, not the exceptional education system. I just thought that was interesting, and by interesting I actually mean utter horseshit.
I need to practice Finnish, and study it more efficiently, but I know I won’t just by myself. As I type this post, the time is 11:45 pm, and I’m willing to swap them phone numbers with anyone interested. I figure full-on mutual support will optimize the anticipation of studying!
The Finnish have this phrase that I am unsure of the commonness of it’s use.
“Vittujen kevät ja kyrpien takatalvi!”
literally meaning “The spring of cunts and the late winter of dicks!”
About as close as I can get to Lake Bodom without actually taking a plane to Finland and driving there. It was an amusing half-hour.
