xkcd.com/1412 TMNT Wikipedia song fits Finnish runo-song metre perfectly, could be sung to any runo-song tune. Vice versa also applies, runo-song epics could be sung to the TMNT theme tune
@anna_debenham hrm, an interesting idea, I wonder how they plan on measuring how long people read for though?
@thatemil what, by making it so large that the elements come out of the screen and go behind the user? Can that be animated?
tradition.is was thoroughly enjoyable and filled with excellent music+dancing — met new friends, learned new tunes+dances+singing styles and generally had a good time. Longer blog post upcoming, for now here’s my post-festival #tabdump:
Not all necessarily related to the festival, but learned about in the duration. Amusingly, last.fm/music/BLM has a big photo of the BLM which performed at tradition.is, but is about someone completely different!
@schussman great work getting webmention comments set up on your site, and thanks for the kind words about my microformats2 blog post — good to know it was helpful :)
Checked into Háskóli Akureyri for tradition.is workshop day two
@aaronpk oooh really? Which libraries? I looked a while ago and couldn’t find any, though it looks like it can be done with the new Web Audio APIs…
Is there a list somewhere of all the #ferguson announcements/statements made by officials e.g. local government, police, state+higher level government?
The new papaparse.com is one of the best open source library websites I’ve ever seen. Going to be referring to this pattern in the future.
Bárðarbunga’s hit orange en.vedur.is/weather/aviation/volcanic-hazards after >48hrs of continuous earthquakes. Revise your Icelandic pronounciation now, so you can smugly correct the news reporters when it goes off!
All booked up for tradition.is next Thurs-Sat. Looking forward to hearing and learning some Nordic music and dance, and visiting Akureyri again!
Had a wonderful time playing #gurdy at Stóri Eyglóar-dagurinn — thanks to all who came and supported Eygló! Played my new tunes The Taste of Words and Jellyfish 500 (not yet notated), and accompanied Eygló singing Vísur Vatnsenda Rósu and Sofðu unga ástin mín.
I didn’t video it myself but hope to have one to link to in a week or so.
