23:36 - Zaphod I like Finnish, but have no desire to ever learn it. If I wanted to study a language that's completely different from the ones I know it would probably be Arabic or something.
23:35 - Redn1ght If you are able to pronounce German and Italian you are nearly covered fully to pronounce Finnish the proper way. :p
23:28 - ScreamingSteelUS it's not as readily pronounceable to me as a non-speaker as, say, German, French, Italian, or Serbian might be. But have a go at Irish. What I've learned of its structure is confusing as hell, to say nothing of pronunciation.
23:27 - ScreamingSteelUS In regards to the Finnish conversation, Tolkien considered it to be the most beautiful language of all and modeled Quenya (the high Elvish tongue) on it. Don't have much contact with Finnish myself, so I wouldn't know, but

"Powershifter", the new video from US metallers Fear Factory, can now be watched at this location.
The video clip is actually a fully fan-filmed labor of love captured in London earlier this year. In fact, for 23-year-old video blogger Myles Dyer, the chance to film the band on and off stage for four shows was a dream come true.
Myles states: "To think that years ago I would be sitting at home watching their DVD's over and over again, dreaming that one day I could see them live! And not only that," he goes on to say on his website, "I got to meet them and... got the go on tour with them... become actual friends with the guys... words will never explain how I feel!"
