Jim and Nemo, thank you for these. I'll give them a listen soon. Looking forward to "suspicious pronunciations", Jim :lol:

some of these words were regular tongue-twisters and I think you plodded bravely through them :thumbs: All sounds good to me, and interesting story, though their life-style seems a bit rough to me. :lol:

thank you, Jim, all PL ok

and these are also all PL ok. :clap: Aha, so Kümmernis was the bearded woman. I actually already heard about this "divine help" to prevent an unwanted marriage :roll: but I didn't remember the girl's name. Although, maybe the beard was a way out for several saints. :mrgreen:

Interesting sections, thanks Nemo !

and here is another one for you to listen to, Jim :) An excerpt from the wonderful Kalevala. I already participated in a group project of the epic a while ago and read several sections, though not this one. I grew to love the melodic rhythm of this poem. :9:

Really interesting, but also strange, especially the end with the hornet and the poisons and the results therefrom. Excellently done. And so PL OK. :thumbs:

yes the supernatural is often present in the Kalevala, it's stories about gods and demons very often. A bit like the Greek mythology. Thank you for the PLing, Jim. :)

@ Alan: thanks for the section, will PL soon !

Section 45 - Nijni Novgorod (time 2:59)

well done, Alan, totally PL ok. I found the poem itself was disappointingly short somehow. I was expecting a longer description of the fair at least 3 or 4 stanzas more. But at least the introduction was really interesting to listen to. :9:

thanks

I hope for the sake of the children that this priest who is walking over them is not a fat guy. :? I wonder how many broken ribs come out of this ceremony.

Section 101 for PL!
thank you, Nemo...oooh the story started out quite like a Halloween tale :shock: I only imagine seeing this army pass by me at night. Quite a gothic atmosphere.

Excellent narration and totally PL ok.

Here is Section 12:
thank you for the PL and wow this section was interesting. I knew about Boris Godunov and the assassination of young Dimitry, but I didn't know about those impostors. I checked it up on wikipedia, no less than 4 pretenders rose up to claim they were the young Dimitry, having escaped the previous assassination. :shock: And some of them even rules a few months before being found out. Apparently that's when the Russians coined the phrase "he's a false Dimitry".

Totally PL ok and very interesting. Thank you !
