I am doomed forever to use Excel (*sinister laugh from MS*).

Excel was taking it’s time opening a spreadsheet, and I (innocently – I tell you – innocently!) clicked the Close button. Result:

An enternity of Excel!Aargh!

Excel is my new god!

All hail the mighty Excel!

Hot on the heels (well, lukewarm) of A-ha’s Take on Me literal translation video comes this Total Eclipse of the Heart literal translation video. Personally, even without the literal translation this is one creepy as hell video. If anyone has any metaphorical translation for me, I’d like to hear it!

Incidentally, according to Tom Reynolds, the author of I Hate Myself and Want To Die (an utterly hilarious book about the 52 most depressing songs he knows), regarding Total Eclipse of the Heart:

The Welsh singer’s collaboration with Meat Loaf producer Jim Steinman still vanquishes all those who turn around to gaze into its bright eyes. Under Steinman’s direction, Tyler rasps her way through a million permutations of the phrase “every now and then, I get a little bit [insert neurosis here]” before losing it during the song’s demented chorus. Clocking in at over seven minutes, Total Eclipse is Wagner’s Ring Cycle without the funny hats; the equivalent of an opera company pelting you with copies of Anne Rice novels. You’re completely drained when it’s over and desperately in need of a shower to rinse off the raven droppings.

Yep. That’s pretty damned depressing right there.

Edit: I just found out that this video was shot in a Sanatarium, which might go a long way toward explaining things.

I’m seriously not going to spoil this one for you, but I’m going to tell you now that the solution is sheer BRILLIANCE, if a little demented in its execution. Tell me what you think.

Nightmare by Henry Fusili

Ok, I couldn’t help myself with that joke, but my good friend at One Large Prawn blog has an interesting post about exorcism in Russia. He’s even helpfully provided an audio clip. According to the linked article:

In the case of the sixteen-year-old girl, she was in a one-on-one
session with Father Basil. Watching from just several feet away, Eugene
could see that the girl possessed extraordinary strength as her mother
struggled to keep her seated. As can be heard on the recording, her
voice changed radically. Her face contorted and displayed “total hate”
for the priest as she cursed at him.

Toward the end of the recording, the girl, with an unearthly
voice, shouts something in Russian at the priest. The translation,
Eugene says, is, “I am not leaving her! I am not!”

The clip itself is well freaky to listen to, and the sounds are…well, not something I’d fall asleep to. Part of me wants to shout “shenanigans!”, or the Russian equivalent thereof (what IS the Russian equivalent of “shenanigans”?), but I’ve also experienced too many weird things myself to be able to just throw the whole idea out completely.

So what’s your verdict? Shenanigans, truth, or just plain freaky?

Do I really need to elaborate any further? Kim Graham has constructed a set of bionic horse legs. Cool? Insane? Or just plain WTF? You decide.

Think about it!

Words are things we sometimes take for granted. We use them every day, whether written or spoken they aid us in all day to day tasks. Yes pictures can provide more information, but we needs some words 😉 But have you stopped to look at the those strange patterns that we glance upon?

Pick a few words and try saying it over and over listening closely to what you are saying, soon the word will become almost alien, you will doubt your pronunciation and even may start saying the word incorrectly. Then start noticing the spelling of words, like demonstration – how did the word “demons” get in there? Which word came first?

Just something for people to ignore or perhaps think about 🙂
