It seemed appropriate to use an obscure words there. Oh, and, “Obloquy”: strong public criticism or verbal abuse.
I’m a bit late in asking this, but…what does “Furtovian” mean?
Hey @Ronald, i know you asked that before. Sorry, forgot to answer. Honestly, I don’t fully recall. I’m sure I meant SOMETHING by it. My guess is it’s a alteration of the word FURTIVE, meaning: attempting to avoid notice or attention, typically because of guilt or a belief that discovery would lead to trouble; secretive. :)
I thought “whooahh” meant acceptance of defeat by haiku?
I still SO want that hoodie…
Since two characters have referred to the sheep as “Wool-Boy,” I presume that’s his “official” name. Does the dog have a name?
BTW, I don’t know much about rap music; is Wool-Boy holding the records in place on the turntables to get them to make that sound? Doesn’t that damage the records? That’s one demerit for Wool-Boy…
Futovia is a fictional nation or country in a Finnish game based on Donal Duck. Believe it or not, Donald Duck comics are wildly popular in Finland, or were.
Futovia is an inept, anal retentive, fascist state. Imagine if the Marx Brothers and the Three Stooges got together and had ran Nazi Germany or Stalinist USSR, with the Keystone Cops as the KGB/STASI/Gestapo.
So Futovian would be acting in the manner of a hilariously inept fascist. Sort of what the librarians are in this instance.
Although the Finns were not a part of NATO, they despised the Soviets so we trained with them on small level exchange tours fairly often.
I love me some good obloquy. Bring on the obloq-heads!
Hail, Hail Freedonia!
“(…)I don’t know much about rap music; is Wool-Boy holding the records in place on the turntables to get them to make that sound? Doesn’t that damage the records?”
Back when Rap was just beginning, rappers would buy random records by the dozen from second-hand stores and use those for both scratching *and* sampling. (Needless to say, it tended to be hard on the disks.) Nowadays, there are records that are made specifically for scratching *or* sampling. (And, yes, it’s not unheard of for rappers and D.J.s to keep a sampling “library” of LPs; although digital sampling is now the norm.)
