I fail at German! - The art of Thornwolf — LiveJournal
I fail at German!
I was reminded of a pleasant memory I had of being in silber's younger brother, platin's car and he was explaining to me how he didn't understand how Rammstein could be so popular in the US given the subject matter of most of their songs. I assured him that I'm quite a fan myself even though I and most other Rammstein fans rarely pay much attention to the lyrics and are drawn mainly to the sound and half (if not most) of the time I don't know what they're saying. So of course this ended up with us both belting out Rammstein at the top of our lungs while driving home, although I can only fake most of it. :)

platin I know you're a raven but dammit you're a dog in this because you're cuter as a dog! *pinches your cheeks* awwwww lookit the doggy ;D

Haha - oh god. My b/f and I have had moments like that in the car. I'm so going to share this with him. XD

The embarassing part is that in a very short amount of time - he has managed to beat me on the lyrics of some of my own funker vogt songs, which he now loves to listen to as well. And as far as black metal goes? He totally wins. ;)

Dude speaking of black metal I was listening to Bal Sagoth the other day and all I got was stuff about ravens and "The Shadow Sword". Pretty fucked up. But then again that's how my friend explained the band to me when he first had me listen to the CD. :P

I have a hard time making out a few black metal band lyrics..but then again.. a lot of it is new to me..and maybe it takes awhile to get a feel for - as far as picking up the lyrics go. But yeah...a much different flavor in lyrics from various industrial genres, which I can usually pick up without too much trouble.

If you was some really hard to understand black metal listen to Troll. Man it sounds like the guy is honestly dying. It's great.

By the way Rainbow is turning into a huge metal head because of me. She's abandoning her industrial roots it would seem. :o

This is really something I love a lot about your art. It's just that special skill of yours. *g*

One day, whenever you should be free again I must ask you to draw Leila for me, even if it's in 2023 or something. Maybe I will also have lost enough weight till than to make a "nice" model. XD

... Thanks to you, I will now have Sonne stuck in my head all day at work. Hell, I don't even know if those are the lyrics for it, I just saw the word Sonne and that's the song that started going through my head!

*sighs* At least it's a good band. I get the weirdest, most inappropriate music in my head at work and want to sing it aloud. Like oh ... The ABCs of Kink by Lords of Acid.

When I /want/ to and when I'm financially /able/ to are two totally different stories I'm afraid. Honestly if it were up to me I'd quit my job and live there but that wouldn't be too fair to Philipp. :

I love your comic strips. =D
... and the expressions, really awesome!
You're extraordinary!

(I would like to do something like this ... but I don't have time! *despair* :S) - Sorry, I know that I'm melodramatic ;D but that's true!

Just a thing: can you translate the text, please?
From: silber Date: January 31st, 2007 05:32 pm (UTC) (Link)
the refrain is "here comes the sun", repeated all the time.

the third one is "she is the brightest of them all"

It's song lyrics from the Rammstein song "Sonne"

Heh, looks like they're singing folk songs. Except for Nico in the second panel, of course, there she's giving it the proper brutal treatment. ;)

My brother had an encounter he told me about. He was listening to some eastern european heavy metal and he was just digging the sound. Some native speaker then came up and informed him that the lyrics were extremely racist.

Talk about your O_O moments.
