I play music that is old and that is new. Some of it is digital while some is analog. It is from many different countries; sometimes it is loud and at other times it is quiet.

How thoughtful of Lordi to dig a hole in the yard for me. That'll save me a lot of work.

Hello, vertigo gang. I Dug a Hole in the Yard for You certainly sounds ominous.

Ahh, Lordi. I'm all in favor of more bands dressing up like monsters.

This has a catchy melody

Just tuning in. Hey, Mayuko and everyone
  12:36pm Rickwaukee:

Local independent station used to have a Mong music show - they have their traditional that is one thing - but then they have schlock modern stuff that is similar to this croony stuff
  12:39pm P-90:

Listening. Enjoying. Hi Mayuko!

Avatar 12:42pm fred:

A few months ago I was talking with a friend about similarities between Circle and Boris. Both prolific bands who have explored different genres, sometimes close to the line between earnest and ridiculous, but without any insufferable ironic pose
  12:42pm Rickwaukee:

@JosphB that's it yes Was on I think Sundays 7AM
  12:43pm Rickwaukee:

I found the traditional stuff to be beautiful and hypnotic
  12:45pm rw:

Weirdly, or maybe not so weirdly I'm having trouble distinguishing the Japanese from the Finnish. Is it the cheese or is it something deeper?
  12:46pm JosephB:

@rickwaukee I miss that station. I'll check out that show.

@rw I am too!!!!!!!!!!!!
  12:50pm rw:

Are the languages THAT similar? It's kind of freaking me out.
Avatar 12:50pm Mayuko:

No, the language is not similar at all. which is the most confusing thing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  12:52pm P-90:

@rw: to English-speaking ears the vowel sounds and some of the rhythms of the two languages can sound very similar.
Avatar 12:52pm Mayuko:

Welcome, ken, Mark R, Ike, coel and henry! & Belated hi to Dave, P-90, and ParUbi!!

Joe B! Have you been to karaoke in Japan?
  12:53pm rw:

Either way I seem to prefer the pop cheese to the metal cheese.

P-90, that's how it's seeming to me. Just totally unexpected!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53pm ParUbi:

The phonemes are similar though, right? So that's why they sound similar...
Avatar 12:53pm Mayuko:

@P-90 yeah, sounds of the words are very clear in both languages, that's probably what it is?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:53pm coelacanth∅:

- and belated Welcome back Mayuko... i checked in last week but, as this week, i am working and not fully here -unfortunately.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:56pm ParUbi:

I found a paper about it! pdfs.semanticscholar.org...
  12:56pm JosephB:

@Mayuko Yes, many times! And here in LA too! Do you have a favorite song to sing at karaoke? Pixies are usually my go-to, but maybe I should expand my horizons and sing something less cool next time.
  12:57pm JosephB:

Maybe I should learn this Unicorn song.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:57pm ParUbi:

Ehh... a book

Avatar 12:58pm fred:

@ParUbi: more like a PhD thesis?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:59pm ParUbi:

Does look like a dissertation, but without the usual introductory spiel
Avatar 1:02pm Mayuko:

@ParUbi this explains a bit of my confusion. I wonder Toshiko also could explain for me where our love for this particular kind of cheesy melody is coming from!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:02pm Dropof Goldensun:

Webhamster Henry I just dug out my old DX7 a few weeks ago.
Avatar 1:02pm fred:

@ParUbi: The tedious "state of the art" kowtowing to potential jury members is missing as well. So maybe not a dissertation
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:04pm Dropof Goldensun:

Wow, I thought it was just me with the whole language thing going on.
Avatar 1:05pm Mayuko:

Sorry, I was busy singing along with サザンオールスターズ.
  1:07pm rw:

Next time we need a bouncing ball.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:09pm Dropof Goldensun:

OK, now unfortunately I can understand the words to this song.
Avatar 1:09pm Mayuko:

@JoeB yes, you supposed to be singing no cool stuff at karaoke. I love Unicorn, you should def try! Many good karaoke tunes!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:09pm coelacanth∅:

there are bouncing balls here but they squeak and the dogs will intercept them before you finish a verse
  1:09pm rw:

Okay, next question, Mayuko, where the heck did you FIND this stuff???
  1:10pm rw:

Haha! Hey coelacanth!

Leningrad cowboys!!! ( I love those movies!)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:10pm tmoyo:

I remember this Leningrad Cowboys movie!

Speaking of karaoke, I also remember being blown away seeing Sheila B singing Akina Nakamori's 少女A with dance moves. 3,4 years back at the live streaming of the marathon finale.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:11pm coelacanth∅:

Dropof what are they saying? something as profound as their album title i presume?

Alright, one more. The album is called We Cum From Brooklyn?? WTF?

I don't know why, but French repair guys always order me to turn it off. Others sometimes even ask me about the station, I've even asked a few about a band they liked and more often than not found a playlist with it

@Michael: That's why they're striking while they can get away with it (which I support, though don't enjoy). Reports say there are more buses and subways. Yet I haven't seen one bus on my way from work this week within Paris, and had to walk all the way home yesterday. Some "improvement"

Just now tuning in. As a person who know a very small amount of Japanese language and no Finnish I admit that some Finnish songs I think it is Japanese that I don't understand. Noticed it last week during the song by Apulanta.

@Sem: so far so good, got them fully repaired just before it started. Not much time for reading though

and since Finland didn't become independent following the dissolution of the Russian Empire in 1918, it make sense one of its first foreign policy directives would to declare friendship w/ Japan.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:24am WR:

When you played Apulanta I was sure it was Japanese pop punk band. My understanding of Japanese is limited so it was not until I checked the name of the artist and Googled them that I realized they are Fins. Relistening to them closely I still heard great similarity to Japanese. Maybe would not pass any linguistic analysis but to untrained or unsuspecting listener definitely strong similarity.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33am WR:

LOL, just noticed that I made same comment about Apulanta when was listening to last part of show as it was broadcast. Listening now from the beginning and it holds very true. Need to read that essay @ParUbi found.
