Cate: They're singing in Russian right?
Me: Yep.
Cate: Then I should stop hearing it in English and hearing things like, "Get me cookies."

Nanowrimo update: 4343 words. I seem to be breaking on odd numbers, 1024, 3232, 4343. When I stopped at 3232, I also hapened to be 6.464% finished. Which means that on average at that point, I had written 3.232% per day. Curious no? And of course, 3 + 2 = 5, which demonstrates that even my NaNoWriMo book obeys the law of fives. Go me!
  • Umm.. do you mean Orff's _Carmina Burana_?

    If so, they're singing in Latin and Archaic German. Locate a translation of the peices. They're wonderfully vulgar.
    • Yeah, that be the one. I was told it was supposed to be Russian drinking songs. Hence probably the confusion at hearing things that I recognised as being words because they sort of resemble my own language. And knowing what a few of them meant. Because I don't speak Russian. Not even a little. But hearing that it was supposed to be drinking songs made it really funny when hearing it played in the middle of doom parts of movies.
      • Some of them are German drinking songs (In Taberna specifically). It's a collection of medieval poetry that Orff set to music in the early 20th century.

        They were written by disaffected youth who pretty much were the beatniks of their generation.

        Are you still online? ICQ me.
        • I just found the history and the lyrics in the original and translated, and it's really pretty. And apparently not Russian as I was told.... Eh. Not a big deal, it's still just as aweinspiring.
