I love the internet!

What would it be like if your boss was a cat? The Adventures of Business Cat

Dog gets cracker stuck on nose, gets confused.

32 service workers who hilariously are not even pretending to try and care anymore. XD

Watch in amazement as somehow, a group of researchers is able to capture and extract sound from a video with the sound turned off, by minutely analyzing tiny waves and oscilations in the video pixels. It's crazy.

And last, brushing up on yoga-related vocabulary in Spanish. Vamos a sentarnos... con los ojos cerrados, respiren profundamente y lentamente, enfocando, visualizando las olas del mar.

This video made me laugh so hard! It's a facebook link to a video. It's people saying words in French, English, Italian, Spanish....and then German. They picked words that are "lovely" sounding in the first four languages, and then very harsh and gutteral sounding words in German.

Like Butterfly!
Papillon, butterfly, farfalla, mariposa......SCHMETTERLING.

It's very hilarious. Click the link here to watch!

This is what I did all day today! I missed making music so much, so making this was fun! I made some music yesterday too, another song that was a gift to someone very close to my heart. <3

Today's song is in Italian! It's called Dolce Follia, by the Spanish group La Oreja De Van Gogh. They are my favorite group in the world. (Sorry, Tokio Hotel! :P)

That's me singing and playing the piano! I used minimal effects -- just some reverb and frequency enhancement on the vocals.

Listen to it here!

The lyrics are so beautiful. She's singing about selling everything she owns -- front row seats to an unforgettable concert, the melody to a song she wrote, the script for a movie she wants to make, a camera full of photos she took of places she's visited, all of her memories, all her stories, everything she has.

She's selling everything to pay off some unnamed life debt so she can see her loved one again, because she can't live "without his/her sun, moon, and sweet insanity." She only sees her loved one in dreams anymore, dreams in which she chases his/her ghost and never catches it. "The memory of your embrace is like the fleeting touch of moonlight on this roof, this roof I want to throw myself off of because I can't live without your sun, your moon, your sweet insanity." The song ends about her going on one last chase from which she will never return.

It tells such a beautiful, sad story, and the song is beautiful too!

Inspired by Kseenaa, when she read Ronia, The Robber's Daughter in Swedish and English!

I only read a page or two of each book. I chose the part where Harry talks to the boa constrictor at the zoo. It took me significantly longer to read it in Spanish cuz I kept messing up! It's cool how I said the same lines but with different inflection unique to whatever language I was reading in.

Listen to it here! Escuchen aqui!

I found these hiding in my itunes. Hello, old friends!

I had the biggest crush on this guy. His voice is amazing. The chorus is so good; "Give me your air for one more day so that I might breathe, a ray of light that makes me shine and kills the loneliness."

Eternally enchanted by these guys. Alvaro in the upper left needs to stop being so adorable. This was last year's message.

....And this was this years message. When Xavier popped up I squealed and flutterclapped.

Like every song by La Oreja De Van Gogh, this song is beautiful and lovely in every way. The lyrics are so deep. What I like about this band is that they sing about love, but about so many subtle aspects and shades of it.

Song and my translation of the lyrics under the cut. <3

Niña, si esta cancion no la hubiera sacado la oreja y la ubieras sacado tu en ingles... aun asi me encantariaaaa.. de verdad te quedo perfecta y es cierto no es el exacto sentimiento pero el que tu le das es uno nuevo y diferente... eso hace un interprete... excelente te felicito.. me gusto tanto que en cierto punto la empece a cantar XD

Girl, if this song wasn't released by "la oreja de van gogh" and was made by you, in english, I would still love it! It's true, you did so perfect... and sure, it's not the exact feeling like the original; but what you give it is something new and different... You made an interpretation. Excellent-- congratulations! I liked it so much that at one point I started to sing along! XD

I am tickled pink! Thanks so much to this person for brightening my night~ People leave the nicest comments on my song, maybe because lodvg fans are more sophisticated judging from their taste in music.

Just goes to show that language and culture are inextricable. It's cool to read this too, cuz the article is in English and Spanish. I copied and pasted and lj-cutted it because I'm afraid it will become a "404 page not found" page in a few years.

Yay! I got it! I had to concentrate. Dang, that's worse than "pork" which is "porque." I told a spanish speaking person what "pork" is in english--ham (jamon) and he couldn't stop laughing. Ay dime pork los jovenes por la red escriben asi?

Quiza mi nombre es nuevo para ti, quiza mi voz tan solo son palabras
Quizas tus labios dudan frente a mi, no saben que me besaron cada manana
Me ves y no me miras, me oyes sin eschuchar
Y yo como una nina otra vez me vuelvo a enamorar
Confia en mi, volveremos a cruzarnos por la playa
y volvera a llevarse el viento mi paraguas
Y otra ves podras poner sobre mi espalda tu jersey
Y otra vez, no hara falta decir nada

Ay, no hay palabras que expresar todo el amor que tengo para ellos!!! Espero que pudiera vistarlos en vivo.
