Re: Let's talk about Matias Kupiainen

the youtube reasponses are great "Uninspiring, Unimotional, note for notes sake...fret wanking..." - yep, you just about summed it all up, but forgot "showing off", and of course the musical wanking on the arrangement. and for a perfect reasponse to that kind of comment I found your comment uninspi...

Re: Let's talk about Matias Kupiainen

I've seen the medley/solo video from him on youtube. Awesome stuff. If you haven't already, you can download the solo stuff from Mikseri: http://www.mikseri.net/artists/matiaskupiainen-solo.101132.php It's in Finnish but it's really not complicated. The Tavastia 6.11.07 LIVE track includes a slight...

Re: I want to learn Finnish/Suomi, who could teach me?

Seriously talking, I've taught some Finnish to few persons on this forum already, and I think that all Finns around here should try to teach real stuff instead of making fun about others' ignorance. :roll: No hard feelings anyone, this is just my opinion. Good luck learning! Give us a list of usefu...

Re: Let's talk about Matias Kupiainen

Well I already knew him from Fist In Fetus when I arrived here, and I can't imagine there'll be too many surprises for anyone who knows his solo and FiF work. I will be interested to see how involved Perttu ends up being though, and in which areas. (Actually, awful as it sounds, I sort of just want ...

Finnish looks like Norwegian and Italian went to war and the only thing that survived were vowels and the symbols above the letters. indeed :lol: but anyway i like this "warletter" and i wanna try it someday! Someone also said Finnish sounded like the language of Japanese cavemen. :lol: My favourit...

That's crap.


I did wonder though - they seem to have half the music industry on their roster, and they'd be taking some spectacular losses if all of them were getting freebies.

Re: Wow this is unexpected...

oh you know an endorsement will come, companies love it when you whore their stuff. Like I said, it depends whether they're aware of him or not. I know unsigned bands with more endorsements than they know what to do with, but I also know very sucessful bands who haven't got major endorsements becau...

Re: Wow this is unexpected...

He's not on the list because I don't think he's actually endorsed by them, just seriously in love with his PRS ;)


An endorsement may materialise when they start touring, it might not, it depends whether PRS are aware of him and his close relationship with his PRS or not :P

Of course, 9/11 being the biggest event of his presidential career. Biggest event of his presidency, yes, but I suspect the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq will end up being the most influential, and I also think that's what history will judge him on.
