Archives For Chinese

Amy seems to be quite the TuneSocial application user on Facebook… if you’ve no idea what is this, it’s an application that sort of works as a ‘virtual’ CD shelf… you can add the albums you own, or the one’s you’ve heard, etc…

I was browsing through ‘my collection’ and noticed that I’ve never given a 5/5 score to any of the albums on my collection, HA! Talk about picky, eh? I also noticed a few glitches, but won’t report because in order to do so, I’ve got to open an account with THEM. DUMB! The main glitch is that when I wanted to find out which CDs had the best rating, and wanted to organize the albums by rating, some of the albums didn’t show up… so in order to verify my list, I had to go through the +600 albums on my list. SUCKY!

Anyway, over the +600 albums… only 30 reach the 4.5 mark. ONLY 30!! Over +200 reach the 4/5 – so AM pretty confident about my choices of stars per albums and artists…

So here it is! Amy’s Top Rated TuneSocial Albums! Continue Reading…

Bibi Chow – WOW

October 5, 2008 — 3 Comments

So I was looking around the web for lyrics of WOW, the 2nd part of the 2-disc album by Bibi Chow, because I was listening to it last night, and on my search for it I ended up finding my own posts wondering about Bibi’s music. How lame is that? So I’ve decided to put that finding to good use and work on the lyrics of the album~ and if people seem to be interested in it, I might work on NOW (the 1st part of the 2-disc album) and her other lyrics…

Okay, so because I don’t speak or understand Chinese, please don’t ask for a translation… it takes enough time (20min if it’s easy) to figure out the right pinyin. Also, no automated-web translation postings… if you think of posting a translation in the comments, I hope it’s a translation job done by a person, otherwise it won’t get approved.

If you are posting the lyrics, please proper credit is appreciated, as well as a link back.

And if you’ve got corrections, please point them out… some of the songs are too fast for my ear… Here’s the link to the CHINESE lyrics.

Enter the Dragon - PosterYes! Amy grew up with this film. I was VERY little, and my dad, being a feverish Bruce Lee fan, taped Enter the Dragon (Operación Dragón) from a broadcast at Panamericana Television (aka. Canal 5). I still remember the Spanish dub… “PANAMERICANA TELEVSION… PRESENTA!” said the voice in off, “Operación Dragón, con Bruce Lee.” – Of course, I became a feverish 4-year-old Bruce Lee fan~ My grandpa was also a fan… he even named my little cousin “Xiao Long” (FYI. Little Dragon, Bruce Lee’s Chinese name), and yeah~ I KNEW the lines… I still KNOW the lines in Spanish.

Kick me. Kick me.
*Kicks*
What was that? We need emotional content. Try again.
*kicks*
I said, emotional content, not anger. Now, try again, with me.
*kicks, kicks*
That’s it!

xD, You know that scene… with Bruce Lee and the student? Right before they try to recruit Bruce to go to Han’s island??

Patéame. Patéame.
*Kicks*
¿Qué fue eso? Mayor emoción interna…
*kicks*
Mayor emoción interna! No ira, otra vez, tonto…

Subtitles Vs. Fansubs

September 12, 2008 — 4 Comments

The amount of films that are not in a language I can speak have increased at least 90% this year… thanks to the internet of course, otherwise I will be waiting for them to either arrive at the cinema, hit the small screen on satellite or cable, or just by finding some Region 1 distributor… but none of that!

Anyway, because of this reason, I have been focusing a lot on subtitles, and I finally have 3 films that I saw with fansubs and now I watched with the subtitles on the dvd. And the results are in… 3-0 in favor of fansubbing.

It’s not because the subtitles on the dvd are bad… they just lack on something. A little UMPH… a little personality… a little common sense?
