“Police baffled by string of arsons”

“Cody staffer christian arsonists”

YouTube captioning is a great idea, but I guess it’s hard to do when taking into consideration sometimes people slur their words and there’s background music~~~ but getting there…

I’ve attempted to sing Leehom’s new song six times already. The first time I saw it and he reached those verses in English… somehow I was deeply moved. LOL But I really can’t believe he’s saying all of this on the song. It’s really quite explosive.

Also, the people complaining it sounds like Ke$ha – please, as if she has copyrighted autotuned vocals. Plus, Leehom sounds more Michael Jackson than anything, specially singing in English. And I’m fine with that, in fact… I kinda love the energy when he says those things.

On the rough — seriously, are you going to trust my Google translation abilities? — multi-language lyric translation and pinyin below the break!

New Google Translate Features

February 15, 2011 — 6 Comments

Listening and watching… and trying to keep up with Asian entertainment means that I use Google Translate often. This is why I think these are new features. I knew Google Translate could read out loud English… and German, but this is the first time that I’m aware it can read Japanese, Mandarin and Korean too.

Of course I chose BiBi’s Just to Meet You song to test, because that’s one of the songs that I butcher whenever it plays on my iPod. And it not only “translates,” but now you can also read it phonetically…

and you can listen to it read it out loud. O_O

Three very important things about this:

1. This is amazing… if you’re starting out a language.

2. A lot of sites that dedicate themselves to pinyin, romaji and Korean romanization just got their work cut down… or have some serious competition. With this, anyone can post lyrics…

3. This just made a whole new generation of lazy.

In the “Lost World,” of course~ LOL

About 2 months ago (a few days later, give or take) I blogged (and try translating) this msg. Now we (I) know why…

Okay… I must blog this because I’ve no idea what’s going on. xD

Yu has updated her blog (Oct 2008 Update ) with the strangest message, EVER. Click here for a quick Google translation.

She is apparently in Caracas, Venezuela – for the not so literate… that’s the capital of Venezuela (where President Hugo Chavez is…) – what in the world is she doing there? I’ve no idea, but she’s not having such a good time. Makes you wonder…

It sounds like she’s in the middle of the jungle… but Caracas, as far as I know it’s a city… like any other. I know people from there~~ And… it’s not that close to the Equator. I’m sure of that, I passed my South American geography tests in school…

Also, water pipes or water is not working? I suppose there’s no electricity? How do we get this message? I’m beginning to suspect Google is not translating properly… or what? Could Yu be in the jungle? What for? Saving rain forest one at a time? New PB? Is she suffering like she seems from this translation?

Can someone translate?

Also… nothing good to eat? Sounds dreadful… and not so PB. She’s up to something, what is it?? I’m sure if she wanted to visit Latin America for its food, she would stop by Peru *hint hint nudge nudge* after all, isn’t Peruvian food known for it’s +400 typical dishes? Plenty to eat, and to photograph I tell you… xD Meh, I’m getting hungry just talking about it… geez~

**EDIT** (almost 4am)
Okay, tried my “own” translation, HA! It seems this update begins OK, here it is (please, feel free to correct):
