His timing is a bit awkward, but I like his jokes! One of my top faves was when he was going on and on about the time he joined a fitness centre and did all those silly exercises. Like moving on a rowing machine.

"But what if you dream you're on a rowing machine? And then you wake up... and in reality you are a galley slave. And as you're being whipped by the master, you say to your neighbor: "You know I had the weirdest dream... I dreamt I had to pay contribution so I could row...".

True on Flue. June sounds like dune, or dyune. Or tune.

I thought about this and in this case the dy part is the j not the u, so it does qualify. Prune is another one. Prune in June.

Actually, the more I think about it, the ju in June is not dyu like it is in dune. The ju in June is pronounced like Jew. A lot of people pronounce dune like june because pronouncing dune correctly sounds a bit posh. Dew is another one that a lot of people pronounce like jew because dyew sounds too posh. The j in June should be pronounced like the soft g in edge, there's no y sound involved.

And it depends what kind of English your talking about. Americans would say Joon for June, doon for dune and doo for dew.

Well it's spelt une but pronounced oon. 'Une' is ambiguous because dune is spelt like June but pronounced differently in correct British English, but in America all of those are pronounce the same (like oon).

you mean to tell me that all my life I've pronounced 'dune' wrong?
hahahahahahhahahha

Husker Du is an american band. I know that it is 'properly' pronounced 'hoosker doo'.
They put the umlauts on it cause it looked cooler with them there rather than without them.

that is all.
move along now.
nothing to see here.
just another overgrown kid from suburbia kicking the can down the road.

Oh that's horrible when people do that, just do it because it looks cool... like using Cyrillic symbols. A backward N (pronounced as i, ee), a backward R (pronounced as ya), or a 3 with thingy on the end (z)... So I like to pronounce Korn as Koyan.

(How often do I pronounce Korn? Never, I suppose...)

I thing it describes the music very well since they make a kind of psychedelic doom that's very heavy and very spacey.

I thought it was a genuine Danish (i think) word or phrase that they heard from somewhere. Do you know Bonny (and I know that Danish isn't the same as Dutch...)?

Good! Although Danish is sorta understandable for Dutchmen. Du could possibly mean you. In that case, I can think of a possible translation for Hüsker...

(ggls...) It means "Do you remember" in Danish and Norwegian. I thought it was something course...

...Kind of an anticlimax, isn't it? Like that song that my sister and I were looking for, turns out to be by a horrible band...
