Depending on whos playing. A friend and I usually just make fun of the wild people, crazily headbanging or jumping or whatever....one time we just stood stock still in the mosh pit and some guy turned around and shouted "are you alright?!?!?"
His full name is Rodion Romanovich Raskolnikov, hence the nickname Rodya.
Marmelada could be German (it definitely does mean jam), but I know that more or less all Slavic languages use marmelada or something similar. And I forgot, why he's called Marmeladov. I think it is somehow connected to the fact that he spends his days drinking and contributing nothing to his family. We reviewed most of the names in school but I can't find my notes There's probably a good article somewhere.
ALSO: I noticed that my profile still states that I have no favorite books. I guess I didn't change it from the day I signed up Have to correct that immediately THIS THREAD IS NOW ABOUT THE BOOK 'CRIME AND PUNISHMENT' !
Ive been to Slovenia! What.... 3 years ago now?
Ah that makes more sense. I will google it some time...
Yeah my profile doesnt mention favorite books. Too many... but Crime and Punishment would be at the top WOOOOOOOOOOOO
Certainly one of the greatest. And the names actually play a big part. Raskol (Razkol in my language) means 'devide' and Marmelada means jam/marmelade (No shit Sherlock). I think there is a good Wikipedia article about it.
note to self: learn russian
isnt Marmelada german for jam?
The thing that got me most confused was the nick names... how does Raskolnikov become Rodya?'
also sorry i dont get how marmalade has anyy significance.
First of all play the songs you love. For me, I try them, if I cant play them i move onto something else. Then I might come back to them a while later and find theyre easier than I thought. A love of something (ie guitar) is not something you can buy... but it tends to be the best motive.
Second is frank hard discipline. If you get lessons you'd be given deadlines and schedules and there might be something all too human inside you that wants to impress your teacher and get things done.
So try these. If you give up you bviously dont have either. Perservere man.

Simple psychology: serial killers tend to target people they dont know much about, which is why theyre so successful: there isnt an obvious pattern. They thrive on learning about this person, how they carryout their everyday life, just to have the power to take that life from them.
Rain is pretty cool. I dont appreciate it as much as I should (being in Australia)
Yes and no. I dislike rain because my shoes and socks get soggy for THE ENTIRE DAY and my poor rabbits outside never get any light and because I have to walk carefully and watch my footing... and there are things I generally cant do (as well), general outdoorsyness and lighting a bonfire and stuff
But Yes because its SO COOL. I love it when I can just have fun in the rain. No umbrella. Just get soaked. Whether Im by myself or not, riding a bike, walkking, outright being crazy... it can be heaps of fun.
Or lying in a warm hammock on my veranda and reading a good book...
