Soittakaa Paranoid!
« : Marraskuu 01, 2014, 05:17:26 »
Hei kaikille!

Or something, I'm not sure about how correct Google Translate is, but it is what I've used to navigate this forum so far. That is, until I found the option to have the forum functions in english. Then again, I've been meaning to learn finnish...

Anyhow.. Hello everyone!

I'm Mikko from Touhou Sweden. Officially Nandeyanen! (which roughly translates as "What the hell?!" in Kansai-ben japanese). Yes, as my (actual) name implies, I'm of finnish descent. Sadly, I never learned the language but I might give it a try eventually.

Hieda no Mukyuu kindly invited us all over and, apart from me, so far I see Gale has registered. Here's hoping many more of us find our way over here.

So, who am I..? Well, thereby lies a tale. Perhaps not a complicated one however.. I'm 31 years old (ancient) as of this time. Former (current?) eternal student who finally managed to get his stuff together and get an MASc in business administration from Gothenburg University.. I'm still tying up my BA in Japanese Language and Literature and working part time as a technical support agent (i.e. NOC-monkey, which is good and all).

IT as a business major you ask? Sure, it's awesome and there aren't many of my kind in the field. A lack of nerds in the business side of academia I reckon. Trust me, I've researched this stuff.  ;)

Active Touhou-geek since about two years (yes, it actually started with a McRoll) and totally a crap player but still enjoying it every step of the way. I haven't got the foggiest what "flyger din trålare" means, but I might be able to offer some insight into... Well, something I hope.

Cheers m8s!

Welcome! Try to enjoy your stay. It was a positive surprise that someone from Touhou Sweden actually appeared here.  :D

Hej! Välkommen~
I find it kinda funny and sad at the same time when a person has born/has roots in some country and they never get to learn the language. But hey, if you really want to learn Finnish, we are here. All of us know Swedish at least a little bit, though English is more preferred for various reasons (it's easy and used all over the internet). Ofc you can take up some classes or something if learning through internet ain't your thing.

Still glad that foreign people find here, register and even write something here!

And I can't break the tradition so, here's a few questions! Haha.

What would be the color of your submarine?
What animal would you be if you could be anything else else than a human?
Favourite Touhou themes?
What about arranges?

I found the option to have the forum functions in english.

Jävla fan. I took a look at the settings pages and thought that option was hidden carefully enough. The next thing you know, the alien’s profile says he is using the english language pack for browsing...

Anounyym1-sama, does it cost extra to the forum if you install a Swedish language pack as well?

Soittakaa Paranoid!

Let me flaunt my former answer in front of my compatriots...

Welcome and I hope you'll enjoy your time here.

It's very interesting to have foreigners from other Nordic countries to come here, and even more interesting to have those who have roots here.
Hope that there will be more of you joining us from now on. Maybe this is the step we've been waiting for to bring revival and life to this nearly-dead forum.

And for questions:

Demetori or East New Sound?
You like it more raw or mixed?
Can you play anything? Guitar, piano etc.
Do you have plans or interest to visit finnish Cons to meet more Touhou-people from now on?

Looks like I have to do deeper tweaks for that, but otherwise sure.

Hey! Bloomin 'ell.. That's a load of replies i a short time.. Thanks for the warm welcome!

I'll make sure to answer the posted questions to the best of my ability. So, here we go.. :)

What would be the color of your submarine?
What animal would you be if you could be anything else else than a human?
Favourite Touhou themes?
What about arranges?

Submarine colour would likely be woodland camouflage, since I'd likely strand it so I'd prefer not to be discovered while waiting for someone to tow me off..
As for what animal I would like to be.. Definitely a cat.. I've worked with and owned cats.. As long as you're part of a human family it's quite comfy.. If you're on your own, you'd still be a competent predator..
Favourite Touhou themes, well I'd prefer not to rank them but rather just post an exhaustive list.. Let me give it a try.. Ah, it'll likely be all japanese titles..

おてんば恋娘
上海紅茶館 ~ Chinese Tea
U.N.オーエンは彼女なのか?
ブクレシュティの人形師
人形裁判 ~ 人の形弄びし少女
幽雅に咲かせ、墨染の桜 ~ Border of Life
妖々跋扈
ネクロファンタジア
恋色マスタースパーク
フラワリングナイト
風神少女
神さびた古戦場 ~ Suwa Foughten Field
封じられた妖怪 ~ Lost Place
霊知の太陽信仰 ~ Nuclear Fusion

As for arranges I have quite a wide area of preference, so where genres are concerned most stuff goes. Currently i keep playlist consisting of the following: A-One, Demetori, Thousand Leaves, NJK Record, Silver Forest, East New Sound and Tutti Sound.

Let me flaunt my former answer in front of my compatriots..

And I believe the proper response is Eläköön!  (is it though?) :D

Demetori or East New Sound?
You like it more raw or mixed?
Can you play anything? Guitar, piano etc.
Do you have plans or interest to visit finnish Cons to meet more Touhou-people from now on?

And you have caught me in a dilemma.. "緋色月下、狂咲ノ絶 -1st Anniversary Remix" literally give me the chills with a side order of tears (insert swedish gay joke here) no matter how many times I hear it. But over all, I would say I prefer Demetori to ENS.
(Addendum, as I totally misunderstood) Raw or mixed? The raw versions are blooming brilliant and I prefer when a mixer goes above and beyond in their interpretation to create something original. So, either end of the scale I reckon as long as the mixer dares to depart from the original.
Instruments: I'm a bloody good vocalist. As far as instruments go, I do play the piano. I would, however, not call myself anything beyond "experienced amateur".
Going to finnish cons? Definitely! As long as I can make them fit with my schedule, which is kind of hit-and-miss but I believe it'll work out.

Who are your favorite 3 Touhou characters?
How much Japanese do you know? How many kanji can you write by hand?

Top three would be.

Saigyouji Yuyuko
Izayoi Sakuya
Hijiri Byakuren

Oh my, how much japanese do I know? Conversationally fluent-ish, depends on what we're talking about. Business matters and classic literature would be preferable unless you want me to go "a-no, e-to" a lot. Supposedly I know 1200-odd kanji, at least that's what my grades say. And I can probably read a few hundred more. However, I'd be hard pressed to write more than around 300 by hand. Kanji recognition software has made us all lazy, this includes ethnic japanese mates of mine.

I also have a horrible (Kansai) accent which can be turned into (2patrician4anyone) Kyoto-ben whenever business demands it.

Did I miss anything..? I hope not.. Thanks again for the warm welcome!  :)

Nope, but I know that's the dude who forces me to prepend my nickname with [THSE] on rizon..  ;)

Ok, I think it works now. Here's link for profile settings.

Now I've tried out the Swedish language pack and I am happy to report that it works very well as far as I can see..

I have found one issue though, the text colour "teal" is listed as "tegelröd".. As "teal" doesn't translate well into Swedish (Wikipedia says "teal" but I've never heard it used) I believe a more appropriate term would be "blågrön". "Tegelröd" would be "brick red" and actually closer to "brun".

Just picking a nit or two..  ;)

I also noticed that there was an English pack installed for registration, which I naturally did not see at first, but the hardcore version worked as well.

Now if I were to learn at least as much Finnish as is used in the forum interface... Hmmm..
