Ivan Ozhogin - Just A Gigolo
Is it just me or is his English getting better?
Yeah, I think so!
Happy Independence Day, Finland.
I regret nothing. (well maybe a little bit)
"dancing homosexuals" is a reference to the discourse of couple of past years, when some male guests would dance with their partners in the official Independence Day reception at the presidential palace - an occasion which is perhaps most widely watched TV-broadcast in Finland. apparently it’s somehow disrespectful for gay guests to have fun at the party that”s supposed to celebrate our independendence??? also dancing homosexuals was too delicious to leave out because herbert.
"Hietanen on ahven" refers to the book "Tuntematon Sotilas" by Väinö Linna and translates to "Hietanen is a perch". The book tells the story of a machine gun company in Continuaton War (part of Second World War) and is one of the most iconic books in the Finnish literature. A movie adaptation by Edvin Laine is traditionally shown on TV every Independence Day.
Thank you for this history lesson!
