        Wow, I thought for sure you'd like The Residents. Some of their stuff sucks, but parts of Duck Stab are brilliant. The sublime cacophony of "Bach is Dead?" The tribute to Elvis with "Elvis and His Boss?"

        Here I come, Constantinople....

        Ah, well. De gustibus non est disputandum.

        Eye, for one, welcome our new opthalmologic overlords.

        One of them used to do demos at trade shows for Roland and Korg (if memory serves). He had a studio near my uncle's shop on Folsom, and every time he walked by, my uncle would say, "That was one of the Residents" and I would run out the the door to look... but alas... I was always too late.

    It's true. It's damn true.


    KATIE COURIC: Wow, the costumes for the Thanksgiving Day Macy's Parade keep getting stranger and stranger, don't they?

    MATT LAUER: They sure do, Katie. In fact, keep your eyes peeled for this next float...

    AL ROKER: It's a real eye catcher, Matt!

    KATIE COURIC: Don't blink, or you'll miss it!

      • kiskadee says:

        russian has no definite/indefinite article (a, an, the), and it has no present tense verb for "to be" (is, are), so any translation that doesn't account for that is going to be totally off. :)

    • anonymizer says:

      babelfish does know russian, but the translation of those comments won't help you much. In general they are just saying "cool" in different ways.

    • anonymizer says:

      C1: Cool!! What was this Berimore (?)?
      C2: Could I ask: Where is this beaty from?
      C2b: I have no clue =) If this is your family, I have nothing to do with this.
      C2c: Family will be happy
      C3: Cool! 5 out of 5! Awesome! They are close, they are in our ranks
      C4: Beautiful (cool)
      C5: Mars attacks! Cool
      C6: Daddy!
      C7: Cool
      C8: Wow, this is impressive, where from?
      Translations aren't literal, but close meaning

        C3: Cool(arfuly misspeled) "trash"(englishizm)! A+! Awesome! They are close! They are among us!
        C4: Beauty

        > Berimore (?)?

        Sir Arthur Conan-Doyle's "Sherlok Holmes" series are an important part of the modern Russian folklore, thanks to the most excellent local TV adaptation series done in the eighties.

        Berrymore is Lord Baskerville's butler.

        the exchange "-- What is *that*, Berrymore??? -- Porrige, sir." is known and loved by every Russian.  one would have to see the TV series to properly understand why, though.

        bottom line: "what's that, Berrymore?" is just "whoa, what the fuck is that?".
