A good move that Skarpi, saying goodbye to the Danes, I bet you wish they'd done it sooner.
Enjoy your day my friend.

Happy Independance Day, Skarpi and Gunna!

Is that pronounced "Bann-ish the Dann-ish" or "Bain-ish the Dain-ish", Giok? he asked dis-Dane-fully.

I'll go back and re-read Dashiell Hammett's "The Dane Curse" and see if I can find any more historical data on all this.....

Subject: Tune Add: LOFSÖNGUR / ICELANDIC NATIONAL ANTHEM
From: Jack Campin
Date: 17 Jun 07 - 10:30 AM

The tune for the Icelandic national anthem was composed in Edinburgh. There's a blue plaque on the wall of the building where it was written. It dates from 1874 when Iceland first got its own constitution giving the Althing legislative powers within the Kingdom of Denmark.

Words by the Rev Matthias Jochumsson (1835-1920)
Music by Sveinbjörn Sveinbjörnsson (1847-1926).
The words, referring to "Iceland's thousand years", mark the 1000th anniversary of the foundation of Iceland by Ingolf Arnason.

Do you do fireworks? We do, well, most people here do for our independence day. Start fires all over the place in the dry West. I guess it's fun tho.

Have a nice day, Skarpi!

Our National Anthem is no Fourth Of July picnic either, Skarpi. The number of celebrities who have butchered it at the beginning of major sporting events often for a National TV audience, is far too long to mention. I've seen Michael Stipe of R.E.M. and John Hiatt (someone whose recordings I actually buy) massacre it in person at Baltimore Orioles baseball games.

But the tune WAS borrowed from a drinking song sung in pubs. I guess nobody cared if you hit that damned high note toward the end or not in the tavern.

Guest Tam , its totally under the Scottish people
if they want an Independence from UK then they should start
digging the road , its not gonna go by in one day .
And I think Iceland would support that Independency.

Have (oops... had) a good day, skarpi!

Canuckistan was weened from Colonialism in 1867, but it was about a hundred years later that we adopted out own flag, The Maple Leaf, and finally, really, let The Union Jack off.

I hope you fly your flag high upon your pole and salute with pride.

I have just celebrated Iceland's Independence Day in the best possible way at a concert by Bára Grímsdóttir and Chris Foster performing as Funi, singing in parallel fifths and playing fidla, langspil and mildly amplified egg slicer.

Morgunbaen, a 17th century hymn, is one of the most sublime vocal renditions I have ever heard. And Chris did his epically famous Lord Bateman.

Tonight I'll fall asleep happily.

Tam: "What are your main sources of income?"
Lava, Tam. They bottle the stuff and sell it to bus loads of blue haired tourists. I'm still trying to figure out where he got the dirt for the garden.
As for Skarpi's advice to you .... Spot on Skarpi. I've always thought that just by asking for independence you are in actual fact, admitting that you don't deserve it. If it belongs to you Tam, take it. Emigration was my solution though.
Regards.
Jim

I was with Diane last night at the Funi concert - marvellous stuff. The Oxford Folk Festival also had Steindór Andersen a couple of years back, performing in the fantastic Holywell Music Room. Iceland has some culture that is enriching us!

I hope you enjoyed your day Skarpi!
