Bonys points for good MLP art


Awe man, now I am trying to remember if there are any danish songs I know of that are about danish myths or such.

Mostly, I can think of the Faroese (part of Denmark, but mostly its own culture) band Týrs rendition of Ramund, an old viking ballad. Significantly shortened, sicne the actual ballad is RIDICULOUSLY long, but an awesome song all the same. We used to sing this at 10th grade assemblies when I went to my 10th grade boarding school, and it's fairly commonly found in song books here.

And as usual, cause I am a dork, translation follows.

Ramund would be a man of higher status
If he wore finer clothes
The Queen gave him clothes
Made from blue yarn, bast and leather
"I do not want these", said Ramund
"This does not suit me well", said Ramund the Young

Ramund walked by the salty sea shore
There he met seven  giants
"I will take Ramund with my smallest hand
and toss him far from the shore"
"You won't do that alone," said Ramund
"Came at me, all seven of you," said Ramund the Young

Ramund took hold of his sword
That he called The Red Dowel
He cut all seven giants down with one stroke
So that they all bled to death
"There all seven of them lie," said Ramund
"Yet I am still standing," said Ramund the Young

The emperor watched from his window
With fear and worry on his face
"Who is that man standing in my courtyard
Laughing such a frightening laugh?"
"It is I, and I wish," said Ramund
"To have a duel with you," Said Ramund the Young

Ramund took hold of his large knife
The one he called the Great Dowel
And split the emperor's body from his legs
And sent his head flying fifteen miles
"I didn't think the knife was so sharp," said Ramund
"And yet the blood is trickling down," said Ramund the Young

for more music that expresses stories, people should check out the phenomenal Dear Evan Hansen Soundtrack. Every song on there is a MASTAPIECE.

That's true actually. I am pretty much a county down from you.

I hope you do <3

I liked the Tyr song, btw. Nicely nordic.

oooh I didn't listen to this until now. It's flippin' gorgeous, and wow is it ever tragic.


How clever you are.

I'm thinking I should post a Svartsort song or two as well. They're about the only band I know of here that base ALL Their tracks on nordic folklore.

Time to Lais now




He was a young man of 18 years
who came to confess his love
but when he took her innocense
he left her with a burden.

In the morning he came to speak with her
and could see her tears of shame
She said "Young man, look what you've done to me
I carry your fruit of flesh and blood."

He took her outside
to the woods where the birds sing
He took her to the river
and said: This will be your grave

He immediately grabbed her
he took a knife and stabbed her 7 times
Yes 7 times it took to have her fall before him
and drown in her own blood

Goodbye father, goodbye mother
Goodbye sister, goodbye brother
I am to depart from this world
and rest in a dark grave.

See the murderer run
restless and unable to find hope.
He's crying btter tears
for he will spend his life in prison.


I came to tell how Pier came to marry Trijn
Their wedding had just been had or they'd come to regret
The first day it was all laughter, all they could see was cheering
and Pier and Trijn were as happy as they could be.

Jan gave them chickens for the pen, Dries gave them a pig,
Mary gave them a coffee pot and a shovel
Mother Janne gave them a cow and Jef some plyers
and Pier de Wal gave them a trap to catch mice.

When the wedding was done Pier began to command
Where the furniture went and he wanted to clear the house
But Trijn told him "What are you up to, this is not a man's job,
Let me have the way I want."

Pier hung the saltbox above the hearth and Trijn begun to protest
She said she didn't like it and it wouldn't stay
Trijn took it down and Pier hit her twice
and told her "You shrew, you won't push me around"

Trijn as a fury so angry yelled "Do I have to suffer
If you hit me again I won't spare you".
Pier retorted "Be quiet, you will live by my rules
I wear the pants and in this corner, the saltbox shall stay"

Trijn brought her husband before court
and had him explain why a man
has the right to decide
where kitchen furniture goes. She took it onwards.

They fought for a long legal battle
until they lost everything and had to sell it all
Their entire household, the saltbox, the pots, the pans
Mother Janne's cow and the copper kettle.

...gosh, well, thank you rosie! i think, you are the champ!

hi hispers! <3 i am happy to see you again c:

this one is restricted for me, but the next one was very pretty!!

this is all traditional Belgian folk music?



Hello, Moony.

How are you?


ohhhh the OP asks us to find songs that tell stories or folklore!!

i have a few good ones!

This a piece of music, written about an old folk story.

In the days of the Eastern Jin Dynasty (265 AD - 420 AD)
There was once a wealthy family, who bore many children, but only a single daughter. The daughter was brilliant, and had a compulsion to learn. Though it was uncommon at the time for women to take up the path of the scholar, the daughter persuades her father to attend classes at the academy, dressed as a man.

The daughter travels to Hangzhou, where she meets Liang Shanbo, a male scholar, along the way.

They chat, and become good friends, finding each the intellectual equal as the other. They make a pact of brotherhood under the canopy of a bridge.

They study together for three years, and the daughter gradually falls in love with the scholar. They prove to be equally good students, but the scholar fails to realize that the daughter is female, or that she is attracted to him.

One day, the daughter receives a letter from her father, asking her to return home immediately. The daughter complies, and sadly says farewell to the scholar. But she searches her heart, and has determined that she loves the scholar, and must be with him.

She reveals to the school headmaster's wife, her true identity, and asks her to give a valuable jade pendant to the scholar, as a betrothal gift.

The scholar in the meantime, decides to make the journey back with the daughter to see her off. During the journey, the daughter makes multiple hints to the oblivious scholar about her true identity.

The daughter then comes up with an idea, telling the scholar that she will act as a matchmaker for him and "his" sister. Before they part ways, the daughter reminds the scholar to return to the residence, so that the scholar can formally propose to the "sister" (who is really going to be her).

Many moons later, when the scholar goes to visit the daughter, he discovers that his scholarly friend was actually the daughter all along, and that she is a woman.

They make a vow to be together and love each other until death does part them. Meanwhile, the daughter's parents have already betrothed her to marry a man named Wencai, a man from a very rich family.

The scholar is heartbroken, and when he hears this news, he becomes deeply depressed until he dies of the heartbreak. By then, the scholar had already become a successful county magistrate.

On the day of the daughter and Wencai's wedding, a strong wind prevents the wedding procession from bringing the daughter past the point of the scholar's grave, which is in the middle of the journey she must take.

The daughter leaves the procession to pay her respects at the grave. When she sees it, she is overcome with despair, and begs that the grave might take her too. The grave opens with a thunderstrike, and the daughter throws herself into the deep grave to join the scholar.

she perishes, and the spirits of the daughter and the scholar emerge from the grave in the form of a pair of butterflies, who fly away together, never to be separated again.

i help a lot of different companies do hiring. if your resume says "two years of experience", and has no GPA on it, i would never bat an eye and ask why no GPA is listed.

on the other hand, if someone has their GPA on their resume after two years of working, i treat that with some skepticism. "Why is this still here?"

Maaaaybe some employers will care. But the vast majority, including big, BIG companies and financial firms, don't want to see your GPA.

They want to know what you learned, what you did, in your two years of work. i lead this initiative. i completed this or that project, under budget, ahead of schedule.

as an aside, when applying, don't say you collaborated on this or that. collaboration is a word that tells an employer "i do not want to take full responsibility for claiming i actually know how to do this."

i collaborated on this project with a team


i worked on this project to completion

the latter is much better.

but back to the GPA, it is okay. truly. a high GPA might give you a nice headstart. but work experience and the confidence to apply courageously will get you further than GPA can.

Saying stuff that might happened?

Not you, Moony


I typed a textwall because idk.

I'll try to explain my point of view

The fact that it could happen is totally and completely irrelevant to why it's an uncool thing to say.

- I didn't give money to homeless people today, maybe they starved to death.
- I didn't donate to Africa today, Africans are starving and slaving away in mines.
- I'm not taking steps to save the environment right now, if the Ozone layer thins and our planets ecosystems collapse, I will hold myself personally responsible.

You see where I'm going with this, right? While I technically did nothing to prevent these disasters that "might have happened", it was not my intention to cause harm, so it would be unfair for me to hold me responsible, and it would just bring the general mood down, if every time I didn't do something which could benefit someone (which is all the time), I reminded myself of the misery I could prevent.

Not to say, that people shouldn't do things to prevent misery, obviously it is always a good idea to do so, but it is better if such actions are driven by positive incentives where it is possible, rather than by feelings of guilt.

Sometimes guilt is merited, if indeed something simple can be done to improve the world and such acts are neglected. But in a case were there's a limited number of job openings, and no further can be created by Moony which is the likely scenario when you're brought in as a hiring specialist, it is not so much merited, as there is no action you can take which improves the situation.

Also, how extreme is it to just say to someone, "hey you might have killed some people", when all they did was hire some people. IF they unknowingly killed someone, why would you bring that shit up. That's just opening old wounds. Tact, man, tact. It'll save you out there if you practice it.

Why are you so mad?
I can see Moony be mad but not you

Also yeah, you might killed homeless person cus you didn't give him money and he starved to death however by giving him money, maybe other homeless person could kill him from jealouse and to steal that money so you could kill him too by giving him money. No matter what you do, there is possiblity that your killed that homeless guy.


You think I wanted to spend my time explaining basic tact to internet people today? Nuh uh, dude. But I feel like I have to when you say stupid shit like that, or you're just gonna keep doing it, lounging around being willfully sad depressing, refusing to take responsibility for anything you do, like the world is some kinda big lottery that just doles every little thing you say out with no involvement from you whatsoever.
