Nuland[edit]

Hallo Sca, Nuland was playing Brzezinski's Grand Chessboard, vielleicht hast Du Freude an dem Text/Audio-Podcast: http://www.nachdenkseiten.de/?p=20781 . Schönen Abend, Sei.--79.223.8.92 (talk) 01:19, 6 March 2014 (UTC)

Gazelle[edit]

Hey, Sca, could I get a quick opinion on this: File:S.M._kleiner_kreuzer_Gazelle_-_restoration.jpg? I thought it worth improving, but, while it serves a unique and useful purpose, it's not really as good as some of the other ship pics I have. Adam Cuerden (talk) 01:42, 14 March 2014 (UTC)

Looking it over, it looks like we do not have another image from the Gazelle-class. However, it appears to also be the ugliest image in commons:Category:Hugo Graf, which is certainly not a good thing. Perhaps I should just shove it to the bottom of the nomination pile, and decide after all the better images are done. There's 27 remaining in the set. I can always nominate that one when all the others are done, when I'll have the justification of completeness. Adam Cuerden (talk) 13:43, 14 March 2014 (UTC)
I went with a good image instead. Adam Cuerden (talk) 01:43, 16 March 2014 (UTC)

Do we have this picture? It is fun. [1]Hafspajen (talk) 15:16, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

Breker: Die Partei
Yes. The so-called New Soviet Man (sometimes sarcastically termed Homo Sovieticus), who supposedly had no inner-directed personal motives, but lived only to serve the collective. Pasternak was an early critic. Nazi monumental art such as the work of Arno Breker (right) was broadly similar, for analogous reasons, and equally obnoxious.
Soviet ideologues also asserted that they had "solved the nationalities problem," a claim more recent events show to have been utterly fallacious. Sca (talk) 14:43, 20 April 2014 (UTC)
PS: This [2] statue of Lenin formerly stood at the center of Lukiškės Square in Vilnius. It was so arranged that Vladimir was gesturing toward the building that housed KGB headquarters — and now houses the Museum of Genocide Victims, which I've been through. Old Baldy's thumb apparently was broken off when he was toppled and trucked away in 1991, winding up ultimately in Grūtas Park near Druskienniki. Sca (talk) 15:35, 20 April 2014 (UTC)
Well, I understand that this was the idea, not to have no inner-directed personal motives. But if all of them who were forced to live there really was lacking inner-directed personal motives, and lived only to serve the collective - or not - that is difficult to judge. I understand that this was the idea, basically. But I think it is difficult to surpress such things... Maybe many had some inner motivation, but concealed it ... in the middle of an unhappy situation. Have you noticed the big amount of good artists in these countries? They might have used their capacity that way... A contradiction. Hafspajen (talk) 01:01, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
Of course people weren't devoid of personal motives. That's not human nature. They had love affairs, marriages, families, careers, personal triumphs and tragedies, etc. In the early days, some were idealistic about Communism, but ultimately most people dealt with the system as best they could for their own benefit. (Unfortunately, all too many wound up in the Gulag.) I think that, by the '60s (or '70s, at least), most Soviet citizens were highly cynical about the dysfunctional ideology and retreated into their private lives.
(For a time I was married to an ex-Soviet citizen.)
Yes, I've noticed the extraordinary number of artists in those countries, especially in music — the universal language. I think music provided for expression of the inner person that was mostly untainted by the imposed ideology. Sca (talk) 14:26, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Oh, I see - that is why. Yes many musicians - but also this artist we made that gallery for. Also people read a lot of books - that was my impression. Hafspajen (talk) 23:37, 21 April 2014 (UTC)
And the Russians seem to have loved poetry more than any other European (?) people. Sca (talk) 00:07, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
Yes, great poetry and litterature... The only thing I never understod... why do they give in for all these crazy regimes so easily? Hafspajen (talk) 09:08, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
I'm no expert, but from what I've read, the answer has much to do with a centuries-old tradition of autocracy, partly in reaction to subjugation by the Khans in the Middle Ages. Suggest reading Russian history. A couple recommendations: Richard Pipes, Russia under the Old Regime, and Orlando Figes, Natasha's Dance: A Cultural History of Russia.

And there is nothing really I can do about it, except sending over som teddy bears... like this Teddybear Airdrop Minsk 2012... Hafspajen (talk) 20:51, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
Do you remember Mathias Rust? Sca (talk) 21:51, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
  • Yes. Face-smile.svg. What a crazy thing to do. He was lucky, he could have been shot. He must have had a bunch of guardian angels with him to came so far... [3] Here you can spot some teddy bears [4] Hafspajen (talk) 22:07, 22 April 2014 (UTC)
Rust's stunt was a symbolic act that presaged the collapse of the Soviet Union by a few years. Sca (talk) 00:22, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
Yes. Maybe we should mention what you said here above in the article? (About Rust...) Hafspajen (talk) 07:03, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
Ah, but then I'd have to cite a reference. (Some years ago, I wrote a personal aesthetic judgment into our entry on a certain novelist, and it immediately got a [who?] label slapped on it. It's been there ever since.) Sca (talk) 14:46, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

Window to Paris, is that when people get lost in a Russian complex with flats and go into an other flat .. not their own? Hafspajen (talk) 17:14, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

Sort of. They're in Leningrad, or maybe it's already back to being Petersburg, in the early '90s, and they find a secret, magical passage through a wall to Paris. Sca (talk) 17:52, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
Daydreaming, eh? Well, the Icelandic is very different from Swedish, Norvegian and Danish. It is closer to the Scandinavian that was used like 2000 years ago. They went to Iceland and they stopped there. Swedish, Norvegian and Danish is quite alike, mostly the Swedish and the Norvegian. I have problem sometimes understanding the Danish. Maybe it is just me because I have Norvegian relatives in the family, but everybody say so. The Finnish, well - that is just Finnish, nobody speak that language but the Finnish, and nobody understans that but the Finnish. It is just totally weird. And don't you belive that the Hungarians understand it, because they don't. Hafspajen (talk) 18:44, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

Also, was für Europäer bist du eigentlich? Sca (talk) 21:26, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
I don't know... all kinds of European... Scandinavian, mainly. Speak a little Latin, and have relatives in USA and South-Africa (hope they are nice to black people), also have an Italian cousin and some Hungarian-German connections. Hafspajen (talk) 22:10, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
Mysterious. Do you drive a Volvo? Sca (talk) 23:32, 23 April 2014 (UTC)
No, not mysterious - just people who like to travel and settle here and there. Ha, Sca, you are a brilliant and intelligent guy, now why would you want to put me into a box? (this was a joke Face-smile.svg) No, no Volvo. Am I going to scatter your dreams by saying that I walk and bike as much as I can? Also take the bus. Use car on long distance travel or excursions. Hafspajen (talk) 09:02, 24 April 2014 (UTC)
I bike too, but lately spring rains have kept me indoors. Rainy again today. Sca (talk) 14:11, 24 April 2014 (UTC)

How do you feel about Sonja Henie? Or more to the point, Ibsen? (I won't even ask about Kierkegaard. But have you seen Babette's Feast?) Sca (talk) 23:48, 24 April 2014 (UTC)
  • ÄÄääååöö. Is this the Scandinavian board. Ibsen is a guy with long beard who was hipp on the 1800s. They enjoyed growing those beards. Very nice of him to do all that writing, but I don't keep him in my library. Kierkegaard... is an ashole. SORRY. He makes me irritated every time it bump into him. He is just totally wrong about almost all things. Never seen Babette's Feast. People say it's good. Why not try Anders Zorn, Carl Larsson, Alexander Roslin, Astrid Lindgren, ...

Hafspajen, I'll support if you want to nominate it, although it's not an easily accessible composition. All the Čiurlionis pix, even on Lithuanian WP, are too small. Sca (talk) 21:38, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

Are we going to use this picture ever?
  • Pst, Sca, what is an EV, evrybody talking about... Hafspajen (talk) 23:29, 5 May 2014 (UTC)
OK, I was thinking. Your nomination is actually very beautiful, but it makes me nervous that they are two pictures. The pictures have a very strong visual impact and two of them make it quite difficult to contemplate them. Please leave just one of them, and you will se it will be much better too look at it. Will vote if you chose just one. Hafspajen (talk) 12:01, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

I see only eight, including the toe at lower right. Sca (talk) 13:50, 7 May 2014 (UTC)
Well, we hope the woman do has two... Face-smile.svg. No, it is 8 . Wait a minute, the dog, 2 visible legs, man 2 visible legs, the figure on the floor 2, plus toes 2 on the upper corner and a woman. Hafspajen (talk) 14:51, 7 May 2014 (UTC)
Okay, 10. Sca (talk) 17:32, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

Doberan[edit]

Bonus picture
  • No, I am not experienced at all. I just say remove the first picture, or something. It happens to be placed between two pictures that visually obstruct your nom. All the colour and everyhing... Leave 1 pic. Hafspajen (talk) 17:44, 7 May 2014 (UTC)
Original – Doberan Minster, choir with the high altar and tabernacle (left).

Leave the one it was correct, the bigger one, that Crisco was contented with. The red from the Pena National Palace tower and that kimono girl's red coat (wich is not a very good pic, that girl, sorry) plus two pictures just takes away peoples concentration. they say, oh, to complicated. Hafspajen (talk) 17:54, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

Alas, yours truly is not schooled in the classics. Sca (talk) 21:46, 7 May 2014 (UTC)

? Why, here is all the Wiki for you to find everything you want. Yes, saw your addition to this great article. Nominate it ? But I wish they would't put those long captions in the gallery. Looks weird. Hafspajen (talk) 00:15, 8 May 2014 (UTC)
So, that is why you don't go to bed like all good Germans when it is night here in Europe. Hafspajen (talk) 15:17, 8 May 2014 (UTC)

Etymology Kaiserschmarrn[edit]

Kaiserschmarrn-mitPreiselbeeren.jpg

1. The name Kaiserschmarrn means Schmarrn (shredded pancake) of the Kaiser (emperor), whereby Schmarrn has also get the meaning of "folly". Therefore Kaiser Franz Joseph's love for this kind of fluffy shredded pancake was his "folly". 2. The translation of Kaiserschmarrn has generated some etymological debate. While “Kaiser” is literally translatable (as Emperor), the same cannot be said for “Schmarrn” or more correctly “Schmarren”. “Schmarrn” has been translated as a mishmash, a mess, crumbs, a trifle, a nonsense, a fluff.

What is correct? Hafspajen (talk) 01:19, 8 May 2014 (UTC)

Bomus pic, A little bit of Europe for you
Hafspajen, Weiß nicht genau. Truth be told, I'm not fluent in German, although I can read it pretty well.
  • Bing translates Schmarrn simply as "pancake."
  • German Wiki has this to say:
Als Schmarrn oder Schmarren (seit dem 16. Jhd. oberdeutsch zu "Schmer, schmieren"), in der schwäbischen, sowie in der badischen Küche auch Kratzete, werden einige – meist süße – Mehlspeisen der bayerischen und österreichischen Küche bezeichnet. Bekannte Varianten sind der Kaiserschmarrn, bestehend aus zerteilten Pfannkuchen, der Semmelschmarrn, bestehend aus blättrig geschnittenen Semmeln, der Grießschmarrn oder die salzige Variante, der Kartoffelschmarrn.
Im übertragenen Sinn wird das Wort "Schmarrn" als Ausdruck der Geringschätzung im Sinne von "Unsinn" verwendet.
So, as a figure of speech, Schmarrn means something like: Quatsch! Baloney! BS!
Speaking of Schwäbisch — My maternal grandmother, who was of Swabian descent, used to trot out this little epigram as a joke:
Sitzen sich nieder,
Schneiden sich Brot,
Schmieren sich Butter,
Und essen sich tot.
Haha. Sca (talk) 13:59, 8 May 2014 (UTC)
You are not fluent in German? What language are you fluent in then? Hafspajen (talk) 14:02, 8 May 2014 (UTC)
I asked you first. Sca (talk) 14:13, 8 May 2014 (UTC)

What were you asking, Sca? And what shall we do with the Etymology in the Kaiserschmarrn article? Hafspajen (talk) 14:17, 8 May 2014 (UTC)

Some time ago I asked if you were Swedish.
I inserted a phrase in the etymology section that I think helps a bit. [9] Sca (talk) 14:49, 8 May 2014 (UTC)
Yes. I am Swedish, and you? Hafspajen (talk) 14:54, 8 May 2014 (UTC)

This is what I look like
... and here's me: Pres. Obama presents User:sca with the Medal of Freedom.
Mom's side was of German descent, and some of the old ones still spoke or understood German; Dad's side was of Norwegian descent. Dad's Mom (whom I never knew) famously told him, "the Norwegians are the finest people in the world," as if it were a simple fact of life on Earth.
Please see my user page reference to the Bessarabian Germans. Also, I recently discovered on Ancestry.com that one of my forebears, though German, was born near Warsaw. Cześć! Sca (talk) 15:30, 8 May 2014 (UTC)
PS: Family lore had it that the German side also included some Turkish "blood," as they used to say. The explanation supposedly had something to do with the Siege of Vienna in 1683. Ha. Sca (talk) 15:34, 8 May 2014 (UTC)

INdeed, "the Norwegians are the finest people in the world," ! And did they had time to marry the enemy during the Siege of Vienna in 1683? Hafspajen (talk) 16:24, 8 May 2014 (UTC)

No, no, that was on the German side — and I don't think "marry" was exactly the word for it.

Bad Doberan Münster Altar Mitte .. it should be in the middle... somewhere. It is a big altar. Hafspajen (talk) 15:06, 16 May 2014 (UTC)

  • HM. Well, I don't know... it doesn't look like it was on the big altar, now does it? Hafspajen (talk) 15:15, 16 May 2014 (UTC)
