Who needs to pronounce it when we only communicate in typeface, Sunshine?

Is it... care-a-lee-a?  That's how I imagined it... but I'm probably wrong like everyone else.

Because there's always the chance that we will communicate in person, LP, at some down-the-road Passions in Poetry hoedown.  

And, nope!

I've always pronounced it 'karry-lay', but then again, I've not really taken the time to try to figure it out.  (neither do I pronounce the 'nd' in 'sandwich' ... it ususally comes out as 'samwich'.  In addition, I have one pronunciation of 'whale, wail, and well'  must be a bit of my southern and oakie roots coming through.

ok, SUNSHINE, so I guessed it was pronounced either
care uh lee
or carry lee
But if we meet in person I'll probably  call you Sunshine anyway.

Mine was picked by my Mother as well. I am named after my Grandmother on my Mother's side. I am Dutch decent and am a first generation Canadian. My Grandmother's given name was Menke and is generally translated into Mildred. My cousin was named Mildred before me and though a perfectly great name, I am thankful to have Marilyn.

Good enough story?

I was pretty much named by my friend Will Patrick, http://us.geocities.com/patrickpoetry/ who will someday join this site and sweep all ladies off their feet.....

I told him I was going to be the first in my family to have an E-mail account, and he said "Oh, the Rat liege is leading the Rats again...." Bingo, Ratleader

It was my second aol sn and it just stuck with me. I didn't want to be like other filipinos, using Azn or Flip in my name so i made up this one isntead. I wrote a poem for it giving a lil background of why I use IcyFlamez. Icy for short b/c my friends always say I'm distant and cold, but also a good friend if you manage to get through my barriers.

Opeth- You were the ONE I never had to wonder the answer to this question.

Day after day I'm more confused,
So I look for the light through the pouring rain...

Heh I was on a fantasy kick in grade 11 and needed a screen name for the many times I would go into excite chat while "doing schoolwork" (one of many chat rooms which were supposedly banned at the school lol). I wanted something with "fire" in it for sure, and for some reason got a mental picture of electric blue flames in the sky, so I dubbed myself Skyfire. Now Skyfire is an actual part of myself, I also go by Sky, depending on my mood and who I'm talking to. *sigh* Skyfire is someone I turn into when things get rough and I need to express it. Skyfire is the poet in me, the writer in me, and the wannabe artist in me (*grin*).

Karilea was a name plucked from the blue, sort of, by my mother.  She had a friend who had the two names Carrie and Leigh, and she wanted to put them together to form one name.  The odd thing about this is, voila, no need for a middle name.  

Pronounced in several ways over the years, it was a real pain for a skinny kid who was awkwardly shy to have such a silly-sounding name when pronounced

Karry Lee or
Kah RILL e ah or
Karrie Le ah or
KAR ah LEE ah

I think my favorite pronunciation of it, however, was when a cousin pronounced it as "me Karrotlee".

Y'all know the pastry product and tune, "Nobody doesn't like SaraLee?"

Well, rhyme that with Karilea and you're good to go!

And LP?  You think we need to talk?

~ Cool. It is good to know that a few people on this site at least know what Opeth means.

Now...listening to Opeth...that is another story.

I like SOME Opeth.  Harvest is a cool song.  and I love the first 5 seconds of Demon of the Fall.

For the most part, I find their vocals too... typical?  Hard to say why, I'm hardly one to criticize the deep growly variety of vocals but, somehow Opeth seems to lack sophistication when it comes to that.

For Metal, I'll stick to In Flames, MDB and maybe Rammstein, thanks...

Well, enough digressing.

"Harvest is a cool song."

~ Although I like Harvest too, out of all of Opeth's songs, it is one of my least favorites.

"..and I love the first 5 seconds of Demon of the Fall."

~ Interesting. In the fist 5 seconds, the song hasn't even really started.

No offense, but it sounds like to me, you haven't really spent much time listening to Opeth in order to qualify for rendering a valid opinion...especially after reading your comment on Demon of the Fall.

But it is all cool.

Heh.  My comments say that I don't really like Opeth, after listening to a great deal of their songs, if these are the only things I admit that I like.

Sure the song hasn't started, but that cool echoey growl thing is just awesome.  That should have been the whole song.  The rest is just guitars and people blaaahing.

LP, you remind me SOOOO much of one of my friends. I am so serious... you could be like, the same person. Freakiness.

Mm-kay. Ya know, maybe I've been like, living under a rock or something, but the only one of those bands I've ever heard of is Rammstein. And that was only like, once. I think I shall go find out what the rest of them are now...

Hah, that's cool, blue eyed lioness... you remind me of some of my friends, too, just judging from what I've read of your poetry and the way you present yourself...

Ok... mine's kind of a play on words... I like how piptalk is a community, but the thing about it being a community is that it's friendly where it shouldn't be.  My name's not really a stab at the friendliness of piptalk, more of a compliment really... "Local" because I like how it makes me sound accepted.  You know, like, your local grocer, your local blacksmith... parasite because it's something that feeds on a host at the disadvantage of the host.  

So, it's kind of like saying, I'm a pest but they love having me around, so I must not be very good at it.  Look everyone!  It's our local parasite, come to suck the nutrients from our bodies and leave us tired and weak.

Granted, I'm not as bad as I used to be.
