Coupled with the thought of a man walking down a hallway towards me, carrying a (bloodied?) axe? To borrow a quote from our dear Fitz, "I very nearly wet myself"! It was chilling, to say the least! Surrender

Aside from the fear factor, I could appreciate the whistling ability as I tend to whistle A LOT when I listen to fact, the very first thing my now husband said to me when we first met down at our shearing shed was, "Can you sing?". When I asked him why that was, he said, "Because you can't whistle." Whistling Uhhuh Blink Rant

Loved the brawny guard!
These beings took that guard from a semi-animated movie... Who framed roger rabbit?
If you ever doubted it, no, that bouncer is not human. But it is very much "brawny"

Apparently the song appeared in an semi-ancient horror movie... "Twisted Nerve"
IMDB dates the movie as released in 1968.

These beings, being fairly poor at whistling, can almost manage a primitive form of that song, but they cannot get the right frequency and volume.
I've got Forgive Me Father by Cradle of Filth stuck in my head at the moment. Just saw the video recently and it's totally stuck in my brain.
Ordo Rosarius equilibrio and In slaughter natives were really good on friday, the other bands were OK but not spectacular.

But it was nothing compared to Kim Wilde today. That was totally AWESOME! Almost 2 hours, all my favourite tracks, and some really nice surprises (Jessica with just Kim on piano, an acoustic version of Love blonde, and covers of Forever young (Alphaville) and Sleeping satellite (Tasmin Archer)). Yep, definitely the best concert of this year so far.

Some videos of friday:
ORE - Hell is where the heart is (live Rotterdam)
ORE - Three is an orgy, four is forever (live Rotterdam)
ORE - In high heels through nights of broken glass (live Rotterdam)
Spiritual front - Song for the old man (live Rotterdam)
Spiritual front - Jesus died in Las Vegas (Jesus died in Rotterdam)
I don't know if this video has been shared around here (quick search came up with nil), but here's what I listen to/watch when I'm longing for the RotE:
Note: requires Flash so doesn't play on iPad/Phone.

Spoiler alert: DO NOT watch if you've not read Farseer and Tawny Man sextet.

Ah! 1:55 and 5:00 get me every time!
I don't care if it isn't Christmas.

The minigame accompanying this track gave me plenty of frustration Rant

But I beat it so- HAH!!
Orla Fallon's new CD "My Land" was released this month and it's been almost the only thing I've listened these past few weeks.
These beings found that song intriguing, but they could not understand the text.
It's a traditional Gaelic song. I had to do a bit of googling since there's lots of variations and this one has bits and pieces of it, but I think I've got it together.

Mo Ghile Mear - My Gallant Darling


'Sé mo laoch, mo Ghile Mear,
'Sé mo Chaesar, Ghile Mear,
Suan ná séan ní bhfuaireas féin
Ó chuaigh i gcéin mo Ghile Mear.


Bímse buan ar buaidhirt gach ló,
Ag caoi go cruaidh 's ag tuar na ndeór
Mar scaoileadh uaim an buachaill beó
'S ná ríomhtar tuairisc uaidh, mo bhrón.


Seinntear stair ar chlairsigh cheoil
's líontair táinte cárt ar bord
Le hinntinn ard gan chaim, gan cheó
Chun saoghal is sláinte d' fhagháil dom leómhan.


The song then morphs into the melody of another traditional Irish song, "Haste to the Wedding", and then the chorus is repeated twice more.

The chorus translates as

He is my hero, my dashing darling
He is my Caesar, dashing darling.
I've had no rest from forebodings
Since he went far away my darling.

And the two verses that are included in this version are

Every day I am constantly enduring grief,
Weeping nitterly and shedding tears,
Because my lively lad has left me
And no news is told of him- - - alas!

Let a strain be played on musical harps
And let many quarts be filled
With high spirit without fault or mist
For life and health to toast my lion.
Ahh... As 'thul suspected, it was Gaelic...The style fit with that region of the world and it did not match other languages that used similar styles...
