Medievalists excited at parchment fragment of 'vagina monologue' | World news | The Guardian

Quote:
In the poem, a virgin woman (junkfrouwe) argues in a free-flowing, often witty dialogue, with her speaking vulva (fud) about which of them is held in the higher regard by men.

Lost chapter of world's first novel found in Japanese storeroom | Books | The Guardian

Quote:
The oldest written copy of part of the 11th-century Japanese epic The Tale of Genji, has been found in the home of a Tokyo family with ancestral ties to a feudal lord.

Seen as the world’s first novel, The Tale of Genji was completed around 1010 by a woman of the 11th-century Heian court of Japan, who was later given the name Murasaki Shikibu by scholars.

Am slightly disappoint :P: no folk metal no Viking metal no pirate metal? And really, no industrial?

Just one foray into double adjectived metal (melodic death metal)? ... there are so many more!

I thought it was light on the melodic/stoner/desert metal as well, and along with the aforementioned Viking/pirate etc. metal they either totally missed crossover, drone, noise, djent and post metal or conflated each with some other subgenre.

Still, the ability to capture the essence of each idiom they did cover, in less than 5 minutes, was pretty amazeballs, imho.

Finland FTW! Certain medium-sized countries are also well above average. The Isle of Man performs poorly, however. Albania is the clear loser.

I've seen that map many times before (and listened to at least 0.01% of however many Finnish metal bands that is).

But I hadn't noticed the source was Encyclopaedia Metallum ... so let's have a search ...

Kosovo is still Not/Available in their list; outrageous.

Finland now has ... 3,952 metal bands. And a population of 5,525,487, making it about 715 bands per 1m people.

It's cumulative (includes inactive bands) so the total number isn't going to go down. And the population isn't increasing much, which would be the only way the ration could go down.

There's no search filter for "active" (and what would that mean? Most recent release? Most recent tour?) but you can filter on genre. :examine:
