Options January 24, 2015: Hej Górale!
The Gorals (Polish: Górale; Slovak: Gorali; Cieszyn Silesian: Gorole; literally "highlanders") are a group of indigenous people found in southern Poland, northern Slovakia, and in the region of Cieszyn Silesia in the Czech Republic (Silesian Gorals). There is also a significant Goral diaspora in the area of Bukovina in western Ukraine and in northern Romania, as well as in Chicago, the seat of the Polish Highlanders Alliance of North America. Traditional Gorol wooden house (drzewiónka) near Filipka mountain meadow in Silesian Beskids Young Gorals of Żywiec (pl: górale żywieccy) during performance at 43rd Week of Beskid Region Culture in Żywiec In Poland they live in the region of Podhale of the Tatra Mountains and parts of the Beskids (Cieszyn Silesia, Silesian Beskids, Żywiec Beskids). In present-day Slovakia they live in 4 separate groups: in northern Spiš (34 villages subdivided in two groups), Orava and Kysuce (2 villages) and smaller groups in 7 other enclave villages in northern Slovakia. Goral of Podhale – member of Trebunie-Tutki folk band from Zakopane Gorals are part of a continuum of Carpathian Slavic highlander groups, including Hutsuls, Lemkos, and Boykos. The various dialects spoken by the Gorals descend from Proto-Slavic from the Eastern Lechitic, Old Polish area, superimposed by Slovak. In other words, the language is of Polish origin, but has been influenced by Slovak in recent centuries. In addition to Polish, the language contains some vocabulary of other origins, including Slovak, Vlach, and words of uncertain origin that have cognates in other languages of the Carpathian region. Mazurzenie may occur. For most Gorals today, the decisive factor in their self-identification with a nationality is not ethnic but territorial. For example, those living in areas under a long tradition of belonging to the Polish state identify themselves as Polish, while those living in Slovakia have identified themselves as Slovaks, with notable exceptions to this rule on both sides of the border. While the origin of the Goral dialect is Polish,[1] the language of Gorals in Slovakia and in the Czech Republic is gradually shifting and increasingly becoming more similar to the literary standard in their respective countries. Silesian Gorals of the Czech Republic identify themselves on the nationality level as Poles and are members of the Polish minority in Zaolzie, which is proved by their communal activity – annual Gorolski Święto festival held in Jablunkov (Jabłonków) is a showcase of a local Polish Goral traditions and is organized by the PZKO (Polish Cultural and Educational Union). This Gorol festival preserves the traditions of the Polish nationality group in Zaolzie.[2] It is the largest cultural and folklore festival in Zaolzie area gathering thousands of spectators each day of festivities. However, in none of the towns and villages of the area the Poles form a majority and some local Gorals identify themselves on the nationality level as Czechs. In this respect the village of Hrčava (the second easternmost village in the Czech Republic), with vast majority of citizens declaring Czech nationality, can be mentioned. In this village the Poles form only a 2% minority.[3] Local Gorals formed (as indigenous people) a majority in the past. They speak the regional dialect in everyday communication. Historically, the issue of their ethnic identity has been controversial and resulted in claims and counterclaims by both Poland and Czechoslovakia. Gorals, like many other peasant communities in Central Europe, determined their own ethnic identities within the nation state system during the 19th and early 20th century.[4] Although nationalist propaganda was generated by both Poles and Slovaks, this process of the Gorals' identification with a nationality was still not complete when the border was finalized in 1924. A notable example were Ferdynand Machay, a priest born in Jabłonka, Orava, Piotr Borowy from Rabča, Orava and Wojciech Halczyn from Lendak, Spiš, who went to the Paris Peace Conference, 1919 and, during a personal audience, lobbied president Thomas Woodrow Wilson to sign these lands over to Poland. After the world wars, some of the Gorals who had opted for a different national identity to the state they found themselves in emigrated to their chosen side of the border.[citation needed] On the other hand, in the present day, some Gorals opt for the ethnic identity of the neighbouring state, rather than the one they live in[citation needed]. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gorals

"carcass" = "tusza" in Polish according to GoogleTranslate. Morning DJ Stashu!
  3:04am JakeGould:

Whoops! New playlist: Carcass = Szkielet.
  3:04am crecca:

You mean `carcass' in polish? I have to say, your pronunciation is REALLY good!
  3:04am JakeGould:

I dunno. Look here. en.bab.la...
Avatar 3:04am the Canterbury wood-elf:

@Jake. I think "szkielet" = "skeleton". Close tho'.
  3:05am JakeGould:

“What we have instead is a very expensive process in Europe for cleaning chicken carcasses.”
  3:06am JakeGould:

Once thing Eastern Europeans have with ethnic groups everywhere: Constantly cleaning something connected to or a part of a chicken.
Avatar 3:06am the Canterbury wood-elf:

Is this going to be music to efficiently clean chicken carcasses by, then?
  3:06am JakeGould:

FWIW, the play list background and the text don’t mix well. Hard to read here.

@Jake ctrl-A dude!

  3:08am Bubby:

  3:09am JakeGould:

Maybe the text could be blueish? Also, yeah… karkas… Us Poles and the obvious.
  3:09am crecca:

`carcass' can be `tusza' (usually something that has been already processed for consumption) or `truchło' (closer to carrion, but not exactly since carrion is `padlina')
Avatar 3:10am DJ Stashu:

I don't know why I didn't know that. Once I saw it I knew.
  3:11am crecca:

When refered to human body, you say `zwłoki', but it can refer animal's body too, and I believe it is the best translation of `carcass'.
Avatar 3:14am DJ Stashu:

Whats the proper way to say squirrel carcass?
  3:16am JakeGould:

According to Google Translate, “Nadmuchiwane Wiewiórki Tuszy”
Avatar 3:17am the Canterbury wood-elf:

I'm getting "wiewiórka tuszy"
  3:17am crecca:

`truchło wiewiórki' most literally, but common people would usually say `martwa wiewiórka' as in `dead squirrel'
Avatar 3:17am DJ Stashu:

OK thanks for researching!
Avatar 3:18am the Canterbury wood-elf:

"Nadmuchiwane" = "inflatable"
  3:18am JakeGould:

How to pronounce: “Nahmooocheewanyeh Weevoorkey Toozee”
  3:18am crecca:

`tusza wiewiórki' works, but it suggests you would like to eat it at some point.
Avatar 3:19am DJ Stashu:

Phonetics are fun :)
  3:20am JakeGould:

Also, I really am mesmerized by this animation of Polish borders over the centuries. It kind of explains how much shit Poles have taken over the years. www.youtube.com...
  3:21am JakeGould:

Thank you for the color shift!
Avatar 3:25am the Canterbury wood-elf:

That acoustic/choir version of "Tenderness" reveals a beautiful song that was originally lost beneath the original's 80s production. Nice find DJ Stashu!

@Jake Thanks for that animation link. Mesmerising, as you say. It almost looks like a living entity.

  3:35am JakeGould:

You’re welcome, Elf. There was another animation I saw that was more Europe-generic that showed all of the borders over the centuries. The most fascinating thing? Spains borders never change much. Nobody wants to deal with the Pyrenees.

regarding thee background dancers, its cool when they interlock their axes and spin around. also some ov their footwork looks like some native american dances. <shuffle shuffle shuffle>
  4:22am neil:

also thee use ov eagle feathers in both <polish folk dancers & native american head gear>is it an elevation ov thee spirit through animism? cultural magic.
Avatar 4:22am DJ Stashu:

Hi Eyepatch Fox! Thanks for the recommendation
Avatar 4:28am DJ Stashu:

I am searching for Eagle feathers
  4:31am crecca:

Fun fact is that górals really like mussels, and they collect them when they visit Baltic Sea. Some of the górals migrate to live by the sea, usually later in life, since it is especially exotic and alluring to them.

And yeah, I do think there are a lot of similarities between our górals and american indians. Historically górals live in close proximity to unforgiving nature, and hunting and travelling is an important part of their culture. However, I think that similarities are so uncanny that it would be hard to explain them without the terms like collective unconscious :)
Avatar 4:33am DJ Stashu:

  4:36am neil:

yeah. thee youtube vid i mentioned in my first post sez the hats have eagle feathers & calls thee dance the robbers dance, or is it the robberts or roberts dannce. couldnt figure that out...also note thee high tatra mts in thee background resemble thee pyramids. <holy ground indeed>
