Yeah, I was in the army a year ago, Pretty much the whole time was surreal. Never really felt like it was a "team game". I have so many better experiences from sports or GW1 for example.

I am born in the Finland like you and Lion is the national symbol of Finland.

I posted good and bad things about Finland on guild forums, and this was the last part:

The ugly

Not good or bad, just waste of time. Imagine you have to be with the dumb people (from junior high) again after high school. Military service isn't hard... I was pretty lucky tho. Can't believe some of those who started in January still have mornings left. Every damn morning wake up at 6 AM. Actually, Sundays 8 AM... but almost all weekends are vacation. But yeah, old equipment.. even firing an assault rifle wasn't that fun. I was in artillery btw.

I appreciate the history and wear the lion with pride. But sometimes I need to get away from this culture. Guild Wars is one of the best ways.



This is one of my favorite songs:

Nice songs please feel to post more of your favorites. I liked it. It is not my typical music that I listen to but I liked the tough rap like song.

Ah to bring up very recent memories these two songs remind me of my ex Russian girl friend. The first one is a band from USA that I am not to fond of but I like very much this music and video. Funny thing in USA it got only mediocre popularity but in Russia it was selected to be the best tune in Russia during 2008:


Another tune that remind me of my ex Russian girlfriend:

My Russian language skill sucks fairly much, but this is about FBI believes wrongly she is spy or criminal, but she simply wants to have freedom to move to another country.

Anyway tough music?... hmm nothing comes to mind right now, but since I like horror(and Action) movies this tune comes to my mind:

I searched for fairly new(2013) music videos that I would like and finally found something that I both liked the music and the video and at least I have not posted that video before in this thread.

It made me laugh it was like sweet irony to me since I like horror movies and have opened thread "True monsters and dangerous predators in the World".  Yes even though I like horror I can sure enjoy happy positive music videos sometimes.

Trei I liked your music video with dogs. While it was not my top favorite music it was ok music to me.

I have listened more to 2013 top music videos. Kate Perry - Roar deserves silver medal in FUNNY fairly good music videos with animals from 2013. The gold medal to funny music videos with animals from 2013 go to this and it is fairly good music to me:

Oh yeah in the recent couple of years I have come into contact and become more or less friend with some cool SouthKorea girls and men that have moved to Helsinki Finland area.



South Korea is high tech country like Japan. One look of the average mobile phone/laptops they use said to me they are not poor/low budget and yes Thailand, Philippines and many countries in Asia are poor but not SouthKorea and Japan. In honor of my Asian fríends from SouthKorea I will post a 10 hours loop video with Korea girls :cool: ! Do I find Korea girls attractive? Oh yes!

I have also in my past trained many years Tae Kwon Do and that is from Korea. However not all Koreans are interested in martial arts same as not all Finns are not interested in Ice Hockey.

No offense and none should criticize others music taste. That said I was criticized to have odd musicvideos in another thread. Yeah lol once again it is proved it is subjective what you consider odd or strange.

So far I went over these:
"Labradford(Comfort), Liquid Tension Experiment(Osmosis), Third Eye Foundation(Anhedonia)/Matt Elliott(C.F. Bundy), Tuxedomoon(Annuncialto)"
Well while I might have heard about the artist names I am not fan and have heard any of those particular tunes. In addition I found the music strange and odd(and this coming from me that like many kind of Trance, Electronic music). Strange. I would not say I disliked or liked them more like neutral feeling but strange music indeed.

Anyway my point is let us not criticize others music taste and I find funny some people find my music videos strange?. It is all subjective taste like art, music taste and we should all respect each others taste. I will maybe listen to the rest some other evening.

Finally I am from Europe. I am sure many Americans find some Europe music strange and many Europeans find some America music strange. My point is neither is correct and it is background also what might be popular near you or played in your environment.

Hmm "strange music that I like" or less popular? Well ,maybe this and I have studied German language and understand it better then Russia at least.

How so strange? Is that the only way you can describe them?

And don't worry about disliking it. You're not criticising MY music taste. You're criticising the music relative to your music tastes. It speaks more about you than it does me when you critique music I like in a negative light.

Also, I'm a Brit, and maybe that makes a difference, but since the Internet, music has mixed culturally with many parts. Hence the stronger drum presence in Western music. I do think electronic music is the future.

Another "not_so_Strange" track; guitar solo by the legend that is Steve Howe:

https://www.youtube....h?v=-aHhWHQX_4k



Edit: I can see immediately where we differ. I'm not a klubb kidd. Not saying you are, as I'd take that with a pinch of salt- but the loud, energetic, up-beat music above isn't typically the electronica I'd listen to of a quiet evening with a cup of tea.

This may be as heavy as I go:

Not sure I would say 'the future', but that particular box is never going to close again and will remain popular in one form or another and intermingle with other forms. That Lemongrass song is probably a great example of this, given that it has some very distinct jazz instrumentation layered with the more ephemeral pure digital sounds. A great marriage of styles.



Not really relating to any of what came before recently, but I will always enjoy the nice stripped back sound of an acoustic guitar and vocalist. There are a few more layers, primarily that cymbal play, but it largely keeps that low-fi feel as the song advances in its composition and throws in more elements. And I don't understand a word of it :D

Speaking of not understanding, try a little Frisk Frugt. This is actually one of my favourite tracks on the album. Reminds me of early Pink Floyd; Seamus or If , perhaps... Danish folk/tronica. The same guy who tried to make plants produce their own music. I can confirm, it was a failure of a project.

strange is your friend, it allows you to discover a taste in music you haven't found yet.
electronic music is evolving most quickly, purely because it only requires a single man to create music with a multitude of sounding instruments and it's distributed quickly through electronic media. it's in electronic music mostly where i discover new melodies within genres that are bombarded with new tracks everyday.
always within genre i find something that captures the right blend of moods and everything else within that genre are just by-products for music to evolve from.
progressive, upbeat, uplifting, euphoric are key-words that draws me into electronic music currently. i say currently because there will be times where i go back to listening to other types of music.

this is my current discovered enjoyment to my ears. describing certain songs with words can't really do it justice, but if i may try, it sends off this relaxing good-vibe, reminiscing a refreshing breeze of air during a summer evening along the beach-coast. shush, don't pop my bubble, this is really great, just keep listening...

If explaining more. I have never heard them before. I have not heard them in yes CLUBS. Discos in Finland or Sweden where I have lived and never heard that kind of music in Sweden, Russia, Bulgaria, Ukraine, Greece, Estonia and I have travelled a lot within Europe. Finally there are music that I really do not like. I am not going to name what I do not like to start a music debate but your music sounded more like neutral and odd but not the typical I do not like music either.

Yes I do like most CLUB music.

However me CLUB kid? Finally to give a little hint none in these forums are  likely 12 year kids. My Lion brother(in arms and countryman) from Finland the person with Lion Avatar is younger then me since he has very recently done military service and you do that usually at age of 18 in Finland. Anyway I am not old, but certainly not so young either though I do date younger women example a 23 year old babe in Ukraine Kiev summer 2012.

If you check harsh truths thread do you really think a landlord is a young kid? Likely not though I am certainly not old looking either.

Finally I have nothing against Brits. For all I care Brits can take the gold in World Cup Football(that would be a change indeed) or at least I hope one country from Europe example Spain, Italy, Germany, Portugal etc. could take the gold. Finland is bad at football(we are good at Icehockey and winter sports), but I will cheer for Europe though I would say Brazil is the top candidate for gold in that tournament.

Anyway on to topic. I like only CLUB music? No not so though YES I do like most CLUB music This is a music video that I like and it is not typical club music:

This is award winning as one of the best of the best music videos from year 2011 though that is as if BOTH video and music is analyzed. Yes electronic music is super popular though I would argue that I know one Gothic/Rock singer(and I like some of her tunes) that is super famous and have sold millions and millions of albums from America so it is not like electronic music is the only popular music.

Whoa, what's up fella? No need to get so passive aggressive. We're all mates here, right? Appreciators of sound, waves, vibrations, art.

You seemed to take offence to being recognised as someone who clearly enjoys their techno. Now, I wasn't judging you, just like I told you that you weren't criticising me for liking what I posted. I didn't even touch on my opinion of the techno/club culture, or you'd be furious.

When it comes to critiquing music, I find it's worth ignoring videos and promotion. Music is about one sense only; aural. Awards mean nothing since, as we've discovered here, it's very personal what music we resonate with. Some people like to be part of a sub-culture or movement; reggae, country, "classic" rock, techno, jungle, dubstep, gothic trance or whatever. They mostly come with their sub-cultural rule set of being part of that club, which is then used to promote the music. Kind of silly, really.

It's clear why trance/techno/dance music is so popular; it's always been that way since the swingin' 60s. A monotonous catchy tune to gyrate against a woman to. Obviously you'd take that music home with you after a good time of thrashing around in the dance cesspit because it's familiar. Familiarity keeps you sane and grounded in your reality.

Now, I listen to music for intricacy and complexity- I don't dance or go clubbing, so I can't relate so much to what I referred to the clubbing sub-culture. I get bored very easily with mundane repetition. As corsair says, electronica is great in that it can easily fuse old kinds of music together to create more complex or at least interesting pieces.


Just take this away: listen to the music that you enjoy or feel has merit. Others can only recommend based on what they know of your tastes. Like wine or cheese.

Having said that, some more tunes:
How about some spanish folk rock/metal? Really excellent prog blend.
https://www.youtube....h?v=WMNfcH-x0Wk

Múm. Icelandic electronica. You can tell they had fun recording this one.
https://www.youtube....h?v=MMYcUTf06mM

Last one- the most relaxing track I know. This will calm your nerves, buddy.
The Orb- Spanish Castles in Space

it's okay if you can't relate to dance music, not everybody has the energy, rhythm and the positive mindset to dance. we aren't all equipped with the ability to move under our own terms among complete strangers, while creating positive connections with other people simultaneously. and it's natural to make a negative assumptions when you have abstained from experiencing these things in your life.

i can relate to dance music, music always has the ability to make me want to move and i used to play around making beats myself. while someone else only hears the same beat over and over again, i have the patience and enjoyment of a rhythmic beat that builds up towards an energetic conclusion. i applaud electronic dance music that incorporate complicate beat-breaks, cuts and creative use of sounds that makes it more interesting, but on the other hand i find people who try to find sophistication in music before they allow themselves to enjoy it to be generally uptight.

Minion: Ok first of all Trance/electronic is not some kind of "woman" music. Most of friends are males that like Electronic and CLUB music. I have been more then once ot "White Out" that is Finland biggest Trance event in Helsinki held once/year. Anyway it is fairly even males and females.

Second of all awards do matter since majority of people like top rated music tunes that is why they also often get awards.

English is not only world language out there. I really like the Germans that have similar law system like in Finland(Sweden laws are very different!),

There is nice cooperation and peace between Europe countries. That said Germany is also world nation in football(soccer) and one of the countries in World Cup held in summer 2014. More then once have I seen the Brits and Argentina take a beating from Germany in football.

I sure like German music and this is interesting electronic combined with more well old kind of singing German music:


PS. Symbiont had many tunes that I liked in his previous post but of course I respect other tastes also.

My favourite song of all time is "Bon Jovi". I especially love the bit when he does the guitar solo, catchy chorus and clappy power sing-along bit. Truly inspirational music. Anything longer than 3 minutes is just way too repetitive and clearly milking the riff.



Edit: embedding a shit.
