Finnish orc-rock band Turisas, display their dexterity on “Rasputin.”

Dig that frenzied Finnish dancing!

And dude— heavy metal accordion.

Walter: you are confusing two different Finnish metal bands here. The Finnish metal band that won the Eurovision song contest in 2006 was Lordi, for "Hard Rock Hallelujah".

Whoops! Corrected.

I guess I have a hard time telling one orc from another.

At least I didn't confuse them with Finntroll.

If this is what you were talking about last night, this is exactly what I hoped it would be. This is the stuff Moomintroll listened to in his troubled teen years. I believe I need at least a couple of albums of this in the kitchen to play while I cut up meat.

Nice bikini babes. Otherwise, the band was a bit understated for my taste. I prefer something with a bit of an edge.

Totally off the subject, I purchased a virtual copy of "The Green Leopard Plague and other Stories" and downloaded it. (I put instructions as to how to move the virtual copy on to the iBook software on another thread. Then I forgot to tell what the instructions were for. Idiot me.)

I was wondering, could I get you to sign my virtual copy? just put WJW or some such into one of your posts. I will copy it and turn it into a PDF that I will download to my iPad.

If others wanted, they could copy the same signature and put it on their iPads or Kindles as well. This way you can autograph everyone's copy at the same time!

Thanks for the great stories.

Thanks ever so.

This now playing in my head in an endless mash-up remix with Lady Gaga's "Bad Romance."

I couldn't work out what the person in the Panama hat had to do with Finnish orcs … (?)
