Re: Finnish dubs of animations

Once upon a time there was a company called "Agapio Racing Team". They undercut everyone else, so all the networks sourced their dubs from them. Little did they know that the dubs were complete shit. Only hugely popular series like Pokemon got a higher budget for the dubbing, and were thus spared. ART went under once the networks realized what a huge mistake it was to give them anything. As a result, a lot of the dubs you'll find on Youtube are from them, because people love being nostalgic over them.

Quite enjoying this site here. Kalevala, but with lovely illustrations. Has a page with illustrations of characters and a brief summary of each one. Finnish, but also has Estonian, and I think Swedish?

This guy's reading has kind of the right feel for me.

Monkeying with my VPN, I managed to get this on Netflix in Finnish, Mehiläisen Elokuva. I use ExpressVPN, and I'm not sure what's going on, sometimes I get errors about using proxies, but then today I'm watching Finnish movies on Netflix.

Language-wise, it's pretty challenging. Has captions and audio in Finnish, and they are completely different.

”Reijo löysi Suomesta 1200 vuotta sitten haudatun kolmipäisen kotkakorun – vastaavaa ei ole aiemmin löydetty”

http://www.is.fi/kotimaa/art-2000001063601.html

This one I'm sort of working on this weekend, kind of scratches my itch on why I'm interested in Finnish. Kotkakorun, eagle jewelry, -- 1200 year old eagle Jewelry found in Finland.

I realize this is a completely pointless metric, but I'm starting to show up on the high score list at clozemaster.

Not sure if I've seen this posted here. I keep going back to this site. I find it hugely useful for untangling Finnish conjugations. Paste in your word, and it'll find the roots and tell you the parts of speech. Seems pretty correct, at least as far as my knowledge of this language is.

Wow, way to go. Meanwhile, some others struggle to get in any language learning progress.
