16:00, Neuzd> Hey guys, I need an opinion
16:00, Neuzd> I'm asking this on IRC too, but probably lots of people are sleeping.
16:00, Cryoburner whispers: We never sleep.
16:00, Neuzd> Anyway, opinions about my band's name: KOCMOC Laika
16:08, Cryoburner whispers: Other than that the pronunciation of the first word might be confusing? :)
16:17, Neuzd> That's what makes it interesting. It's cyrillic but they're also characters in the latin alphabet
23:14, Albeyamakiir> So, is it actually pronounced "KOK-mok la-I-ka" as it looks like? I'm guessing no. :P
23:32, Cryoburner> Incorporating your band name into your lyrics could help!
23:32, Cryoburner> "A to the O the Cyrillic Es, KOCMOC Laika put you in distress."
23:32, Cryoburner whispers: Neuzd's beats are so fly.
23:38, Neuzd> That would be quite a challenge, since we're an instrumental band :P
23:40, Cryoburner> You really should add a lead singer though.
23:40, Cryoburner whispers: And maybe a choir.
23:41, Cryoburner whispers: Maybe the dog could be the lead singer...
23:42, Cryoburner whispers: A dog probably couldn't pronounce the band's name though...
23:42, Neuzd> Anyway it's "cosmos" but, as I was saying, the ambiguity caused by those cyrillic characters to be also in the latin alphabet is welcome indeed.
23:46, Albeyamakiir> Was I right about the second word, at least?
23:51, Neuzd> I guess...it doesn't matter very much, haven't you ever heard of Laika? Anyway you say it, is ok for me.
23:52, Neuzd> There are probably differences in any languages, but you pronounce it the way it makes you recognize it.
23:59, Albeyamakiir> Wikipedia says "a Soviet space dog that became the first animal to orbit the Earth as well as the first animal to die in orbit" because "it was practically impossible to create a reliable temperature control system in such limited time constraints."
23:59, Albeyamakiir> Guess that makes sense, though. :)
