Much like Seth, I expect you to memorise every single post in here.

To restate something that I may have only said in IM:

I only have MSN on my laptop, & I'm not installing the others for only two days a week.

Is your MSN in your profile the appropriate one because godDAMNIT ALL I'm just drunk enough to be determined tonight.

I have all 3 of Pub in Pidgin, and I don't even talk to him/

Hey girl, open your legs
and I put my deeeck into your tunnel
my beech

(I can't judge the Italian all that well, but I think it passes for orthographic. The French and Spanish, though, are somewhat further from the point of being sensical than the English is, when it comes to the question of how nonsensical the polyglot verses are.)

This guy is somehow connected to an Italian punk band I listen to. They're fantastically good and I'm not afraid to say that, but back in 2004 I only had one mp3 by them and through Googling their band name they came to an offhand reference to that song on my website. The fact that, per what my reading in Italian at that time could infer, "a public university student of Chicago" was listening to their music was a reason for them to link from their webpage to my blog. Let me tell you, it was a fun bit of detective work for a few hours figuring out my web stats for that one random page was getting a freakish amount of traffic from a freakishly small area in northern Italy.

(If I've ever had any connections to the mafia, it was not in Italy but via a company located in Fort Wayne, Indiana. I really, really want to talk about that episode for insight as to WHAT THE FUCK WAS GOING ON, but I have no idea whatsoever how safe it is from a legal standpoint in terms of covenants I signed. If you're wondering how much I'm shitting you when I say that, the level of shitting you is surprisingly low.)

I sent the band an email about it and I was like, "umm, 'sup?" After years of emailing them every once in a while to ask if they had yet figured out a way for me to buy their cds, they'd reply with personal replies and such that answer "no" in broken English. It was pretty cool!

Right now I'm reasonably confident that I'm the only American, and possibly the only person on Earth who isn't fluent in Italian, who owns their entire discography.

Asila Apr 12th, 2008 01:06 AM

In only a slight subject change, Seth--have you ever heard of Le Tango De Qui by Olivia Ruiz? I ask because I'm pretty sure the song's about being insane and I'd love some confirmation on that.

Sethomas Apr 12th, 2008 01:27 AM

No. Since it's in French I'll justify my assumption that she grew up near French culture despite a Spanish name, id est, in Spain. In most parts of Spain, her name would be pronounced "oh-LIB-ee-ah roo-EEETH".

I was trying to come up with a stupid reason why that matters.

I'll consult our friend and ally Google.

Google's best expert on the subject is you. In that post.

Sorry! Do you have the lyrics?

Asila Apr 12th, 2008 01:33 AM

I do, hold on:

Je m'présente je m'appelle Clara
Je suis clown triste à l'opéra
Mon univers cet Hôpital
Je suis désordonnée mentale
J'ai un trapèze et des amis
Et sans filet, sans interdits
Tous ensemble on brûle la piste
Quel beau métier la vie d'artiste

Enchanté moi je suis Lucy
Je collectionne les insomnies
Droit au coeur j'ai des coups de soleil
Que j'attrape pendant mon sommeil
Les yeux fermés je déambule
L'homme en blanc me dit somnambule
Mais lui n'a jamais rien compris
Que les rêves aussi ont un pays

Je suis qui bon me plait
Je vais là où je vais
Devinez donc qui je suis
Qui me précède et où je vis
Je suis qui bon me semble
Et qui se ressemble s'assemble
Plus on est de fous plus on rit
Allez rejoins la compagnie
Viens danser le tango du qui

Mon visage vous dit quelque chose
Non je n'vois pas je m'appelle Rose
J'existe à l'encre sympathique
Heureuse en tout, mais amnésique
On creuse a fond dans ma mémoire
Pour reboucher ces trous bizarres
Moi j'aime assez ces tourbillons
C'et comment déjà votre nom ???

Je suis qui bon me plait
Je vais là où je vais
Devinez donc qui je suis
Qui me précède et où je vis
Je suis qui bon me semble
Et qui se ressemble s'assemble
Plus on est de fous plus on rit
Allez rejoins la compagnie
Viens danser le tango du qui

Entrez, entrez c'est moi Lison
Moitié femme et moitié
Mon siamois ne va pas tarder
Je m'en vais vous l'présenter
Il est presque poisson volant
Ne me ressemble pas vraiment
On nous parle de schizophrénie
Mais a deux c'est tellement mieux la vie

Je suis qui bon me plait
Je vais là où je vais
Devinez donc qui je suis
Qui me précède et où je vis
Je suis qui bon me semble
Et qui se ressemble s'assemble
Plus on est de fous plus on rit
Allez rejoins la compagnie
Viens danser le tango du qui

Je ne m'présente pas, je ne m'appelle plus
Raison de ma raison ils ont eu
Je n'ai plus de nom, plus d'histoire
Mon cabaret ferme ce soir
Abasourdie sous les néons
Les saltimbanques ont mis les bouts
Ils se sont fait une raison
juste avant de devenir fous


They're not perfect but it's best translation I can find without doing it myself

Sethomas Apr 12th, 2008 01:53 AM

Translation?

It wasn't originally in French?

Anyways. I scanned down four sentences and found:
"Je suis désordonnée mentale"

"I'm mentally disordered"

I'd love to spend time with this and give you all my EXPERTISE, but the quest for literary analysis and such in a second language when I've not had much sleep (largely you guys' fault) is kind of hard right now. Yes, I do have a beer in my fridge to solve that, but it's a very good expensive one that I'm saving.

It appears that she's either exploring different manifestations of mental illness, or else she's singing as one person who assumes many different crazy personalities. Recurring pattern of introducing herself with a different name, going through a routine associated with that name, blah blah. The latter idea that all these are the same person seems unlikely right now, though. Maybe it'll seem likelier later.

Asila Apr 12th, 2008 02:00 AM

I appreciate that you looked, at the very least--I had suspected this translation but having it from you makes me feel a little better.
And at some point I might hint around just sending you the MP3 and you may get a better sense of what's being said.

Sethomas Apr 12th, 2008 02:20 AM

having it from you makes me feel a little better

Preserved for posterity. Also, I am approximately eleven years old.

It's okay, apparently I'm 12.

And I highly doubt that.

Chojin Apr 12th, 2008 09:01 AM

WHO'S UP FOR SOME MATH?!

Chojin Apr 12th, 2008 09:02 AM

Oh and ditto for GW, be glad they didn't divorce sooner. Mine did when I was about four.

Drugs and alcohol were involved!

Chojin Apr 12th, 2008 09:03 AM

And now when someone tells you that they did your mom, know that it was the catalyst for her broken marriage.

WhiteRat Apr 12th, 2008 09:16 AM

I'll be spending the weekend in Louisiana attending a huge craw fish boil. I've never had craw fish as i'm from the frigid north so i'm expecting massive rebel flags waving proudly as well as monster trucks roaring in the background as greasy rednecks devour craw fish.

RaNkeri Apr 12th, 2008 09:23 AM
