Hi all, this is my first post on anchorbutt. Hope you enjoy!

In the 13th century, the Mongolian leader Genghis Khan (in German Dschinghis Khan) and his hoard of riders conquered a vast area of the world as it was known at that time. Centuries later, a colourful, historical and costumed music group from Munich did the same with a surprise attack on the world of music.

Here is an English interpretation of the lyrics.

nice. reminiscent of the controversy surrounding louie louie. the magnificent brain. is it reliable for any purpose?

there's a japanese (i think) pop song about ghengis khan, but all i could find for reference is this
multicultural karaoke rendition
. on the upside, i believe we may now own the internet's only inbound link to that video.

it's funny that in any language, khan's exploits are characterized at some point by mirthful laughter.

Porcelain is the surest plan.

I forget, how do I tell how posted this post?

dewey said...

It's very intuitive. From the main page, click the "posted at" time, which is a hyperlink. That'll take you to a page that has just one post, including all the details, such as who posted it.

A-ha, ha ha ha.

i think we need to reinstate the 'posted by'. frank should use greasemonkey to implement his weird game. for example, he could replace username links with outbound links to porn, so you get a consolation prize for guessing wrong.

Yeah, I've changed that failed experiment back.

Also, it'd be great if the post title went to the individual post, and not a link, but only sometimes.

Is dcass done with his redesign? I was hoping for a new color scheme, at least. :)

dcass said...

more redesign to come

i was keeping the color scheme for a bit as to not shock anyone

Also, i will likely post three styles to choose from.

My weird game?

Wired News has a piece on Buffalax, the "translator" of this video.

"your weird game" == guess post's author from content alone.
