Good one.

Robert said...

Their cartoon offspring would be awesome.

Dominic Saltarelli said...

You're right, nothing more to say.

So instead, here's a clip of some badass Finnish folk metal. Maybe Markku can tell us what it's about, because I have no idea.

Must be steroids.

When I saw that one this weekend, I laughed.

as his boss said, one of the side effects was an improved dating life (and psychopathy, which probably helps with the dating life).

But wait. We're told everywhere that women aren't attracted to a man's physical attributes. Everyone tells us that chicks DON'T dig jerks, and that the chicks who do dig jerks are themselves damaged. So this just can't be right.

/sarc off

Markku said...

I knew EXACTLY what band Dominic would be referring to before even clicking it. That's my sister's favorite band.

English translation, from the Internet below. Note that this takes a very literal approach, not even trying to make it sound poetic. Also, the actual Finnish says "iron", not steel. So, we're talking about a very primitive version of steel here.)

The Steel

Steel, strike now, come into being / Spring up from the hot fire. / Steel, strike now, rise from the ground. / Arise from the busts of nymphs.

Deadly steel, it's time to strike. / You'll come to life by strikes. / Black steel, it's time to strike - you hot tar-burning steel.

Three steels, it's time to strike. / You were forged by Ilmarinen. / He picked you from the ground, / from footprints of beasts.

Steel, strike now, come into being. / Transform in the hot fire. / Swear you now, killing steel / merely to strike the enemies.

Copper steel, it's time to strike. / Strikes may build up your strength. / Steel so red, it's time to strike - you hot-burning cross-steel.

Fine and shiny steel, strike now. / You will be made by strikes. / Whitish steel, it's time to strike - you sharpened killing steel.

An English song from the same band.

I like this one by Korpiklaani:

Vodka

Vodka! Vodka! Vodka! Vodka! Hey!*

Vodka, you're feeling stronger
Vodka, no more feeling bad
Vodka, your eyes are shining
Vodka, you are the real man

Vodka, wipes away your tears
Vodka, removes your fears
Vodka, everyone is gorgeous
Vodka, yeah vodka

Drinking is good for you,
soon you are unconstrained
Drinking is good for you,
Here comes the womanizer
Drinking is good for you
Not anymore lonesome
Drinking is good for you,
And you will feel awesome
And you will feel awesome

Hey!

Out of respect for nature,
Our vodka and drinkers.
Promising, that the vodka
We reserve, is as pure as it was
Thousands of years ago

Out of respect for nature,
Our vodka and drinkers.

Vodka, you're feeling stronger
Vodka, no more feeling bad
Vodka, your eyes are shining
Vodka, you are the real man

Vodka, wipes away your tears
Vodka, removes your fears
Vodka, everyone is gorgeous
Vodka, yeah vodka

Drinking is good for you,
Soon you are unconstrained
Drinking is good for you,
Here comes the womanizer
Drinking is good for you
Not anymore lonesome
Drinking is good for you,
And you will feel awesome

Drinking is good for you,
Soon you are unconstrained
Drinking is good for you,
Here comes the womanizer
Drinking is good for you
Not anymore lonesome
Drinking is good for you,
Yeah!

Yeah!

Vodka, you're feeling stronger
Vodka, no more feeling bad
Vodka, your eyes are shining
Vodka, you are the real man

Vodka, wipes away your tears
Vodka, removes your fears
Vodka, everyone is gorgeous
Vodka, yeah vodka

Drinking is good for you,
Soon you are unconstrained
Drinking is good for you,
Here comes the womanizer
Drinking is good for you
Not anymore lonesome
Drinking is good for you,
And you will feel awesome

Ok... now it's its even MORE badass

Ever Light said...

Ha. Simply put with deep implications.

Vox, if you do these kinds of cartoons would you consider making a little Game-themed comic strip?

This could help out a lot of reluctant Gammas, Omegas and also Deltas.

Michael Maier said...

RE: the Finn video... WTF?????

Actually forget I asked... I'm almost certainly better off not knowing.

Michael Maier said...

I was sharing that cartoon at work as soon as I saw a link to it today.

Too dang funny.

Retrenched said...

@ deti

LOL Yeah, pretty much.

Saying that 'good girls' don't like jerks is as absurd as saying that 'good guys' don't like big breasts. Of course they do.

What a wonderful morning this is. People are discussing Korpiklaani in my favorite Game blog! Here's my favorite song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NvyT6MQIvvw

Maybe Markku can translate it for you. It's about men looking at beautiful maidens and telling them to bring more beer. :D

Another good one, both in finnish and in english:
Finnish: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a247R3mNs5A
English: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tuq3temcrZA

I once saw these guys giving beer to the audience during the "Beer Beer" song. Good stuff.

Minna Erkola said...

Oh, no need to bother my brother for this, here is a pretty good translation for Tuoppi Oltta (A Pint of Beer): http://lyricstranslate.com/en/tuoppi-oltta-pint-beer.html

Their songs have quite a bit of Game when you look into it:

"Morning is come and the light of day yet still we keep drinking our noble ale.
Wench, bring us a pint of beer, a pitcher of nectar-like ale.
Merrily while drinking may we behold heaps of beauty in the loveliness of virgins.
Let's enjoy all the joys that life can give. Join us demure lady, bring beer with you."

Sorry for going off-topic so much, I just can't help it when it's about Korpiklaani...

Peregrine John said...

Someone ask about a song with beer, lovelies, and various languages? Here you go.

Brad Andrews said...

Need to look at a later one too:
