Hobbit Drinking Medley. Fun to listen to on repeat while doing dishes or dancing with the kids:

I like comedy songs, and I like parody songs. So naturally I like parodies of comedy songs.

I just listened to the whole of the Tengen Tetris soundtrack thanks to remix project that exclusively used Korobeiniki for every boss theme it mixed with. Trying to find a full orchestral arrangement of Bradinsky is hard (Games in Concert just did the GameBoy themes). It'd be a blast to dance to no matter which way they decided to take.

Nope, it's not. That was a tract called 'Bradinsky'.

Korobeinki is what's most associated with the game, though. Here's what you might be used to;

But there are also many many wonderful covers (both for the game and just the folk song).

I guy I know just released this. It's an ode to a kind of pastry called "banitsa". I should probably cross-post this to the cooking thread.

Well, that was certainly different. I just wish I could understand the lyrics :D

'Banitsa' sounds tasty. Do you happen to have a recommended recipe?

I’d probably just post a recipe for that in there.

Sure! I have to get some sleep now, though. Final election results are out as of half an hour ago and I could do something else tomorrow, and get some sleep. We got 27 of 240 MPs. About as much as could be hoped for. That a third more than what I expected and the Nazis didn't even get into parliament.

EDIT: sorry, wrong thread. EDIT2: to get it relevant, I guess, we got the first openly LGBT member of the Bulgarian Parliament :) EDIT3: wrong thread again... listen, I'll give my grandmother's recipe for banitsa tomorrow in this thread as compensation.

Apparently there are still tickets for my birthday when Ivo will be playing in Sofia, and he will be performing that song. Ivo just said that on facebook. And he'll be opening with Banitsa. And apparently some riffing off Pushkin also for some reason.

As much as I love the cocteau twins, this is is the Ivo I mean: https://www.youtube.com/user/ivodimchev/videos

EDIT: Is Aspen a normal name in the western US?

Yes, it is.  As either a surname or a first name, it would attract no attention at all.

Don't think there'd be a problem with it.

But if the name in particular is important to you, then you're probably referring to a real person. 

And if a specific real person is identifiable from the lyrics of the song, and they're not a "public figure" of some kind, there could be repercussions.  At least, in America there could.

So has someone whose name is Aspen done something noteworthy, heinous, glorious, stupid, and/or hilarious?

Aah, I had been thinking of the other Ivo.

That said, and I know that it’s getting a bit late, but happy Fat Bob Day to everyone!

I'll go with hilarious? It's actually a translation of a Bulgarian name referring to the same tree.

In tribute to the Anzacs, sadly, nowadays noone marches at all:

May be I have been overcome with Nordic melancholy? Anyway, lately I have been touched by the music of Jakob Sørensen, a  Danish trumpet player, and his friends.

Really like this album. It's like the OST for an obscure 90s video game that never existed.
