Re: Beautiful words...

In Spanish, i really enjoy the word "desafortunadamente", which means unfortunately. I just love saying it.

Also, the word "angst". I believe it's sound carries its meaning perfectly; lots of consonants in one syllable, and its very... conflicted-sounding. I like it.

Chad VanGaalen. Not only are his songs kickass, he animates his own music videos for them.
