compusa de Bee Gees, care se afla in mare voga atunci, salveaza pelicula, si talentul de dansator al lui Travolta.
Dar cate pelicule slabe nu figureaza in topuri...la fel ca si in "cele mai frumoase femei" unde pitica de Kylie Minogue apare prin frunte, sau J-Lo...La cate fete si femei frumoase sunt pe lume, zau asa.

(la: Vi se intampla sa va obsedeze o melodie pana la refuz?)
Dear sis,

Nu stiu cand ai venit tu in USA,iti spun insa ca eu la 1981(anul descalecarii lui Ozzy),am apucat,chiar ciudat fiind, o manie ce exista aici pe atunci inca...de 7 ani.....transmiterea la radio pe toate posturile parca(nu puteai scapa!)a cantecului f. faimos"Stairway to heaven",de Led Zeppelin.Vol IV.
Nu am nimic impotriva cantecului,imi place chiar la nebunie si azi,dar a fost super exposed zi de zi ca lumea nu mai vroia sa dea drumul la radio!!!!
Le era teama ca vor auzi din nou pt. a milioana oara acest cantec!!!

Si s-a ajuns evident la plangeri si scrisori de protest impotriva tuturor statiilor sa scoata cantecul de pe programe!!!Si treptat a disparut incat si in ziua de azi...acest cantec NU se mai difuzeaza deloc la nici o statie radio din tara!
Tu vorbesti de o obsesie cu un cantec personal,la acea vreme Stairway to heaven devenise...obsesie nationala!!!!!!

Chestia cu reclamele,e ceva normal....stiu din proprie experienta lucrand in storyboards pt. reclame TV.
E o echipa de muzicieni anume ,sunt mai multe de fapt,si ele lucreaza cu contract pt. agentiile de advertising.Trebuie sa creeze anume melodii,catchy,
sa-ti ramana in creier,sa stii ca se fac sondaje destule si multa lume cumpara cacaturi de produse doar pt. ca acea anume melodie le-a ramas in cap si devin ca zombies,fac lucruri ce altfel normal nu ar face.
cand ajung acasa se si intreaba de ce dracului au cumparat cutare produs pt. o pisica cand ei NU au pisici in casa!!!!

Asa ca nu vreau sa aud de la tine ca azi vii acasa cu ...K9 Advantix!!!
Ultimele mele reclame sunt acum mereu la Tv pe multe canale si desigur si la tine,sunt toate ce la vezi legate de Valtrex si de Beers(diamonds are forever).

Uneori ma scol dimineata cu un cantec tampit in cap,chiar f. tampit,de aiurea
fie ....Neil Diamond,Bee Gees,Abba de ex. si imi vine sa ma iau la palme,pt. ca NU-mi plac acesti muzicieni deloc!!!Cantecul lingers cateva ore si nu scap de el pana nu ma trezesc cu un AC/DC,sau Ozzy Osbourne ori WHO.

Dar sunt copil al dracului,I want to share my pains.....si atunci stii ce fac?
Ii fredonez lui Marilyn cantecul care ma enerveaza,ea ma alearga prin casa dar deja i-am plantat in minte acel cantec si la fel nu poate scapa de el.HA!HA!Ma prinde si-mi da pantalonii jos si ma bate la curul gol,in joaca desigur,dar rad in prostie si fredonez acel Neil Diamond s-o sucar si mai mult!HA!HA!

Sa scapi de obsesie e simplu: ai vrun cantec ce-ti place f. mult?Asculta-l imediat si scapi de porcarii.

Con tutti bacci,
Love&peace,
Ozzy(Little Eagle Who Cries)





































Belle,BEEEELLLLEEE!Stelllaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! - de Little Eagle la: 07/08/2004 21:22:51
(la: Preferati muzica)
Dear one,
in primul rand cred ca faci confuzie intre Bob Dylan si ..Bb Marley...cel din urma inovator jamican al stilului raggae(se pare ca a murit in circumstante ciudate si CIA ar fi planuit asasinarea lui).
Cu toate ca stii ca Ozzy Osbourne e favoritul meu ca muzician inca de cand era cu Black Sabbath,deci un mare fan al lor si lui din 1970,am si alte gusturi muzicale si variate,de la clasic la tech-industry music.

Daca ai fi in casa noastra vei vedea o mare colectie de cd-uri de la Edith Piaf la Moby sau Tool.Nu-mi place si nu mi-a placut insa stilul pop,disco si de plangareala,in special anii 80 tampiti,plini de porcarii gen Abba,Bee Gees,Boney M si altii care au disparut la fel cum au venit...pe nevazute,doar marii muzicieni inca si azi produc si sunt mereu mari.

Jackson?Nu mi-a placut niciodata ca muzician.Bob Dylan? avem 3 cd-uri cu el si desigur ca-l iubim mult si la fel muzica lui inovativa si poezia cuvinteleo(doar Jim Morrison l-a putut egala).
Muzica country?Ce faci fara Johnny Cash?Ori Loretta Lynn,sau Dolly Parton?Ea...mai ce focoasa e!Sa ai sex cu ea...nu ai nevoie de mancare si nimic, te tine toata ziua si noaptea....nu pot vorbi multe...nu am chef de law suit!In fine.
Joan Baez a cantat cantecele lui Dylan,Jimi Hendrix la fel,Beatles,The Stones,omul e un mega monster in music.100% talent si geniu!

Imi aduc aminte de cenaclul lui Paunescu.Odata am fost la polivalenta pt. ca aveam un f. bun amic(azi de 24 ani in Elvetia),muzician(chitarist)ce era prieten cu Dan Andrei Aldea de la Sfinx...pt. cei mai batranei ca mine si stiu ce scriu acum.
Era si Phoenix atunci cu Tandarica la tobe(desigur)Ovidiu Lipan si Baniciu(mai tarziu devenit solo folk-ist dupa ce restul grupului au roit-o spre taramuri vestice),si multi altii ca Valeriu Sterian.

Cantau la cenaclu Dylan in prostie,dar boul de Paunica se baga ca un idiot mereu traducand in romaneste din Dylan ceea ce nu-i chiar usor sa-i gasesti un context sa rimeze ori sa exprime ceea ce el a scris in..engleza!

Am apucat cenaclul cand a inceput prima oara,era interesant si mai tarziu mi-am dat seama ca era o simpla manevra comunista de a face pe tineri sa vada ca Ceausescu nu era chiar..."rau".A devenit o propaganda si poetul curtii regale(Paunica) trebuia sa traga sforile si sa -si bage nasul si mai mult in curul murdar de cacat al partidului si ...idolului sau...!

I like your last words Belle,sounds almost like something Ozzy would say.
He used to say in the 80's:"Am I going craaazyyy?Am I going insasaaane?
I enjoy every second of madness that runs thru my veins."
O zicala buna ce o simt si eu in mine deseori,adica de ce-s un Ozzy fan?

LOVE&PEACE,
Ozzy

Nu dau Massachusetts, Words, Tragedy,si inca citeva, pentru toata muzica lui Aphex Twin.
Iar cind vreau sa ascult muzica electronica ii prefer pe Jean Michel Jarre, Tangerine Dream, Vangelis, Klaus Schulze.

Nu are rost sa ne certam, vorbim de gusturi personale.
Cit despre ris, cred ca Bee Gees(aia care mai traiesc) cu 110 milioane de discuri vindute, rid tot drumul spre banca(vorba unui proverb ebraic), asa incit cred ca mai degraba ma poti acuza de populism decit de elitism :))

eva - de beatlemaniacul la: 22/06/2010 02:53:37
(la: continuarea de la ciudatenii)
Din partea dreapta a pajistei apare Eva cantand in ultrascurte gen Bee Gees:
"aaa aaaaaa aaaa".
Si ei ii bate vantul tot din fata fluturandu-i parul si esarfa, scotand la iveala un tricou lambada cu vedere la buric si la poigneurile de amour bine dezvoltate.


eh aici m-ai atins la lingurica, daca as putea sa pictez imaginea asta nu ar mai trebui sa mai caut FEMEIA, ce e mai sublim decat sa-mi imaginez PRIMA FEMEIE imbracata cu vedere la buric ... la buricul care ne-a hranit pe toti ... sublim si excitant in acelasi timp

Sa le fi zis si oraclu? Eu stiam de oracol. Poze? Inafara de cele lipite acolo, aveam vederi cu Abba, Boney M si Bee Gees. Interesanta senzatie fata de vederile astea. Totdeauna cand avem o impresie puternica fata de ceva nou, ne ramane intiparita acea senzatie fara sa o mai putem repeta in alta perioada temporala.

Lui JCC de la Ozzy Osbourne - de (anonim) la: 06/02/2004 12:05:39
(la: Sa fi sau sa nu fi..? Electia lui Bush)
Draga JCC,
Cind am venit in USA Reagan era presedinte de 2 ani si deja incepuse politica lui economica ce peste alti 6 ani a finalizat-o aducind tara in stare jalnica.
A introdus ceea ce a numit"trickle down economics"si la fel si o multime de someri si homeless people ce au umplut strazile tarii.
La acest fapt ce a ..creat,a gasit scuza prin a repeta mereu"exista someri si saraci in USA pt. ca acesti oameni sint lenesi si nu vor sa munceasca"!
Pe plan extern era mare aliat cu Saddam pe care l-a sprijinit cu armament,daca-ti aduci aminte faimosul proces al lui Oliver North.
In cele din urma acest actor de duzina care mereu a spus ca ..niciodata in viata lui si-a vopsit parul a fost urmat de V.P lui, Bush Sr.care printre vomari pe la japonezi a continuat sa distruga ce-a mai ramas drept mostenire de la Reagan.
Un foarte indragostit dupa petrol imediat a intors spatele lui Saddam pt. a veni in ajutor Kuweitul asaltat de Irak,o crima impotriva umanitatii,petrolul din Kuweit trebuia salvat,nu?
La un moment dat chiar a atras de partea lui o mare popularitate de salvator al lumii si generalul Schwartzkoff,un f. mare strateg militar la fel a devenit un supererou depasind chiar si faima idolului sau Fieldmarshal Erwin Rommel a carui carte a stat mereu la loc de cinste pe masuta lui oriunde a fost alaturi de biblie desigur.
Cu toate ca razboiul a reusit sa sustraga de la atentia americanilor problemele economice,dupa o vreme ele au revenit si americanii s-au trezit din betia patriotica si imediat au dat de pamint cu Bush Sr. si cu mic cu mare au votat un nou presedinte mai aratos si cu un sarm ce doar JFKennedy l-a avut.Era interesant sa vezi in dezbateri si pe parcursul anilor cum Tinarul Clinton devenea tot mai alb la par in contrast cu Nea Regan,dar important e ca a reusit sa puna tara pe picioare si luptat destul sa repare stricaciunile celor 2 prune uscate de dinaintea lui!Nici tuica n-ai fi putut face din ele.
Economia a inflorit lumea o ducea bine si era multumita de rezultate,Hillary era o First Lady cum n-a avut America niciodata de la betivanca de Lady Bird Johnson,umbla peste tot cind Georgica era pe la vreun MacDonalds si alerga pe strazi sa fie in forma.
Dar tot lipsind de acasa cu treburile ei politice,l-a scapat din vedere pe Georgica care nici el nu era mai prejos decit idolul sau,JFKennedy.Si uite asa
l-a prins ca-si pierduse ..creionul sub biroul din Oval Office si o fetiscana brunetica Monica Lewinsky il cauta de zor folosind nu doar miinile in explorarile ei.
Mare scandal mare si o gramada de minciunele scoase la minut de Georgica.
Astea i-au scazut popularitatea de salvator al tarii si al Bosniei.
Oricum apucase al doilea termen...acum tine conferinte pe sute de mii de dolarasi si Hillary s-a facut ca auitat incidentul rusinos de la birou,concntrindu-se in cariera ei de senator de NY.

Acum insa sa discutam freely despre marele cow boy care conduce tara ca-n vestul salbatic incercind sa mentina vacile ce sintem mereu in tarc,iar daca una o ia razna o si prinde repede cu lasoul.
Baietasul asta este fiul nebunatic al lui tata Bush.Multe ispravi a facut el in tineretea lui,un Ivy League studinte la Yale pe care l-a trecut ca rata prin apa printre grame de cocaina inspirate pe nasuc si clondire de whisky pe gurita,mai tirziu chiar a devenit dezertor din armata un anisor de zile stind acasa la ranch cu taticu si petrolul.
Cu timpul a luat-o chiar bine razna si chiar devenit brain damaged,insa l-a salvat bunul Dumnezeu care i-a artat calea spre lumina si adevar facindu-l BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN.Hehe he alta viata acum!
Intra puternic pe politica si dupa ce este guvernator al statului sau in care nu s-a nascut,si dupa ce trimite la gazare o gramada de detinuti fie real vinovati fie pedepsiti aiurea si murind de pomana,i se scoal ca trebuie sa fie presidinte
acum.
Si fostul drogat si betiv si dezertor candideaza impotriva moliului de Gore si cu putin ajutor fratesc de la Jeb in Florida si mismasuri pe la masini de vot fixate
reuseste o dublare de voturi miraculoasa de care si Dumnezeu s-a mirat.
Se face deci singur presedinte si incepe sa -si aleaga acolitii lui pe sprinceana,ca intr-un film western gen clasicul My Darling Clementine,doar ca nu exista un Whyatt Earp sa-l sperie la OK Corall si nici Henry Fonda care-i mort demult.
Primul lucru ce-l face e sa distruga TOT ce a facut Georgica,poate din vanitate sau invidie,cine stie cert e ca reuseste din plin si azi are renumele de primul presedinte din istoria tarii care in doar 3 anisori de putere deplina sa faca cele mai mari ravagii in economie si datorii interne cit n-au facut ultimii 11 presedinti la un loc!Apoi asta e real o enorma realizare si tatuca Reagan in semn de mare respect pt. el,are de gind sa-l puna pe moneda de 10 centi si sa-l stearga pe Roosevelt din istorie,sa speram ca NU apuca!!!Altfel cine stie ce nazbitii mai face acest strengar?
Este insa f. ambitios a rezolva anumite probleme pe care Papa Sr.le-a lasat balta,si anume o vendeta e la orizont si folosind cu larghete termeni tipici de cow boy il face pe Nenica Saddam "WANTED,DEAD OR ALIVE"
Ca prin farmec intimplarea nefasta de la TWIN TOWERS,un fel de Pearl Harbour modern,se iveste si uneste tot poporul in jurul lui,acuma toti sintem patrioti mari si fiecare casa,masina ,cladire arboreaza steagul,cu timpul chiar se dovedeste a deveni un simbol nationalst ce parca aduce aminte de neica Hitler si zvastica peste tot chiar si pe cacastor.
Si adunind vacile la un loc noul Georgicaw boy le indeamna spre noi meleaguri alte tarimuri,adica o invazie asupra Irak ului ce trebuie pedepsit exeplar si tiranul Saddam prins cu lasoul,pe Bin laden il pierde din vedere.
Da sfoara in tara cum ca ar avea ceva armament de distrugere in masa,nuclear si plenipotentiar nuclear,si in plus un alt justitiar din Anglia insa se raliaza acestei cauze drepte odata numita de Georgica"cruciada".
Arapul ulterior e prins intr-o gaura de sobolan.Dar unde-i armamentul?Se pare ca CIA e de vina ca a dat informatii false lui Harap Alb!Vorba aia,anul asta sint noi alegeri si Georgicaw boy trebuie sa fac niste scheme noi sa iasa basma curata,altfel Kerry il ingroapa in pamint pina la umeri si ii ia capul!
Deci si-a implinit misiunea de distrugere a Irakului si a Americii si a alocat reconstructia Irakului unor firme de-ale curtii lui regale,deh o mina spala pe alta nu?
Vacile ce sintem am inceput sa ne cam agitam in tarc si sa facem git,sa mugim tare,doar marii baroni si baronasi sint de partea lui John Wayne.
Noi vacile democrate dam ocol lui Kerry si Edwards,dar Kerry e mai experimentat si decorat si real a zburat cu avionul NU IN avion precum Georgicaw boy.
Si uite asa speram sa-i stea in git lui Bush Jr.bine infipt un covrig mai mare sa lesine,ala de acum 2 ani era prea mic,dar tot a lesinat.
In numele petrolului si al Americii va candida din nou,multe giumbuslucuri are el in minte sa faca dar speram sa-l oprim din elanul lui creator,caci daca mai apucam 4 ani cu el...ne luam bocceluta si ne ducem pe alte tarimuri de poveste.
Nu vom mai avea natura si nici economie nici de munca nici pensii nici ajutor medical nici haine de primeneala si bani de cheltuiala,nici punguta cu 2 bani,
deja sint vreo 34 milioane de vaci in tarc ce n-au asigurare medicala de nici o culoare si mai multi someri ca niciodata.
Dinastia din Texas trebuie oprita cit mai e timp asta e parerea mea si a sotiei mele,dar a multor altora.Vom merge la OK Corall si ii vom alunga pe toti si pe acolitii lor.Pe Jeb il dam la aligatori de nici Steve Erwin n-o sa-l poata salva!
Un senator democrat ce a pierdut insa si a iesit din cursa,Dick Gephard a spus un lucru interesant:" Sa fii un adevarat republican e sa devii democrat"
Si cu astea,incalecai pe-o sa si va spusei povestea mea.

LOVE&PEACE,
Ozzy Osbourne

(la: Ce parere aveti de scolile din strainatate)
eram doar curioasa sa stiu daca parerea mea este deformata sau nu. fiindca mie imi pare ca aici nu se face scoala prea serioasa. fac comparatie intre scoala pe care am facut-o eu si primii ani de scoala ai copilului in romania si ultimii trei ani de scoala aici.

cateva exemple: la liceu, la matematica, face ceea ce facea in romania intr-a cincea, temele pentru acasa nu dureaza mai mult de jumatate de ora, etc etc. cunosc pe cineva care la colegiu facea ceea ce am facut eu intr-a noua, sau care invata cum se foloseste corect "apostrof s" in limba materna! ca sa nu mai zic de asa zisele "spelling bee" de care sunt foarte mandri si care mie mi se par penibile, cum adica sa nu stii cum se scriu cuvintele din propria limba, si ce grozav esti daca stii... chestii elementare.

ganditi-va ce greu se echivaleaza in strainatate o diploma de studii obtinuta in romania.

e drept, pe de alta parte, ca macar li se preda esentialul si nu le impuie capul cu ceva ce nu vor folosi sau retine vreodata. recunosc ca sistemul din romania era mult prea incarcat si dus la extrem cu aberatii. dar pe de alta parte aici nu mi se pare ca se face scoala serioasa ... sau poate am inceput eu sa imbatranesc si sa devin mai pretentioasa.

probabil ca am putea discuta cu exemple pro si contra pe aceasta tema la nesfarsit.

oricum, mi-a placut sa aflu cum e si in alte parti, macar asa din curiozitate si multumesc celor care-au raspuns.

wow... ce mult am scris, nu-mi sta in caracter ;) mai bine ma opresc....

(la: Ozzy vs LMC)
de cand se traduce "jew" prin "jidan"(termen insultator)?

N-am intentionat sa jignesc pe nimeni si nu stiam ca "jidan" e un termen insultator; daca e imi cer scuze. Cum s-ar traduce atunci? --- ca n-am un dictionar englez-roman la indemina.

Dupa cite stiu eu: hebrew = evreu
israeli = israelian
jew = ? (eu credeam jidan---corectati-ma)
jewish = de religie ?

Citez mai jos pentru cei ce au timp sa citeasca din Oxford English Dictionary:

word `Jew' is also applied to groups, e.g. the Falashas in Ethiopia, not

the Sephardim.

2 a transf. and offensive. As a name of opprobrium: spec. applied to a
grasping or extortionate person (whether Jewish or not) who drives hard
bargains.
In medieval England, Jews, though engaged in many pursuits, were particularly
familiar as money-lenders, their activities being publicly regulated for them
by the Crown, whose proteges they were. In private, Christians also practised
money-lending, though forbidden to do so by Canon Law. Thus the name of Jew
came to be associated in the popular mind with usury and any extortionate
practices that might be supposed to accompany it, and gained an opprobrious
sense.

Britain's first National Photo Album unearths hidden photographic treasures

HP is pleased to announce the initial success of the National Photo Album, one of the most ambitious public archiving projects in recent history. Having urged the nation to dust off its old photograph albums and rummage through its attics, HP has been astonished to see people react so positively.

With over 5,000 images already submitted and more than 300,000 hits in the first two months, The National Photo Album has been embraced by the public. The search has uncovered some hidden gems from the photo albums of members of the public, such as:

- The enchanting image of Big Ben taken during the strikes in the 1970s, when fuel was at a premium and the spot lights had to be switched off
- A chance meeting with George Best relaxing on holiday in Majorca in 1972
- Young twins working a wooden washing machine in 1939
- A boxing match between sailors, to entertain the troops on HMS Emperor of India in 1915



"We expected a good response, but I don't think we ever imagined that people would react in such a positive manner. The HP National Photo Album is quickly turning into the vital photographic resource we always hoped it would. And there's no doubt that The Daily Mirror has contributed enormously to our success as we supplied its 'Pic of the Week' for almost two months," said Peter Urey, marketing and category manager for HP's Imaging and Printing Group. "No one else is providing a photographic resource which contains pictures solely taken by everyday people and we believed that this difference would offer a 'back stage pass' to our history, now we know for sure that it does."

The aim of The National Photo Album was to search for images of individuals, families, workplaces, events, outings, cities, towns and villages, all accompanied with the story behind each picture; anything which revealed something of the way Britain has worked, played, lived and loved over the past two hundred years. The results have been fascinating with a hugely varied collection of pictures and stories.

"The HP National Photo Album is an excellent incentive to keep British History alive," said one of the National Photo Album's visitors. "It's always great to be able to see other people's pictures of years, events and times gone by and I'm certain that as the word spreads, it will be a much visited site."

"We were hoping for pictures which would immediately provoke attention such as pictures of Elvis Presley's only visit to the UK, but what we have found is that we have received a far more interesting selection of stories," added Urey. "When you read a story about a 10 year old boy, with numerous siblings who was the only bread winner in his family, you realise the importance of these pictures as historical materials."

The HP National Photo Album is free to access at www.nationalphotoalbum.co.uk Anyone wanting to contribute to the archive can offer their pictures for consideration in one of two ways.

- Option 1: Upload images directly onto the archive at www.nationalphotoalbum.co.uk by following simple step by step instructions.
- Option 2: Submit entries via post to HP National Photo Album, 31 St. Petersburgh Place, London W2 4LA where they will be vetted and uploaded by experts.


*All images must be accompanied by a suitably sized self-addressed envelope. Every effort will be made to return the images in good order but HP cannot be held liable for damaged or lost photographs.

HP has a unique history and expertise in digital imaging. Currently it is assisting museums and art galleries around the world including the UK's National Gallery, in digitising their collections to ensure that the world's most important images are captured for posterity. Now it is turning its attention to the treasure trove of photographs that lie gathering dust in the nation's attics.

By digitising and storing these valuable images HP is aiming to ensure that this valuable photographic inheritance is not lost and can be shared with millions of people. Suitable pictures will be added to the HP National Photo Album which will be a searchable online database of images that can be accessed and downloaded for free.

(la: despre barbati ... fara suparare :))
ok... ar trebui sa-ti inchipui, da' pana atunci hai sa vedem daca cineva iti raspunde la intrebare.

pentru mine chestia cu fundul paros e ca prima din sirul (a se citi "shir" dupa definitia data de tine) de "insulte" de mai jos (se vede ca iar imi curat computerul)

Roses are red, violets are blue, I once thought I was ugly, until I saw you!

Just because you have one doesn't mean you have to act like one!

A man's got to do what a man's got to do. A woman must do what he can't.

Men's brains are like the prison system - not enough cells.

Stupidity does not qualify as a handicap, park elsewhere!

You have a right to your opinions. I just don't want to hear them.

You're breath' so stinky I don't know whether I should give you a breath mint or toiletpaper!

If you can't live without me, why aren't you dead already?

You'd make a lovely corpse!

I never forget a face, but in your case I'll make an exception.

Why do you sit there looking like an envelope without any address on it?

Did you eat a brain tumor for breakfast?

You love nature in spite of what it did to you?

I want to reach your mind - where is it currently located?

I wish I'd known you when you were alive.

If you ever had a bright idea, it would be beginner's luck!

What's on your mind? If you'll forgive the overstatement.

When you go to the mind reader, do you get half price?

I look into your eyes and get the feeling someone else is driving.

You're a mouse studying to be a rat.

Don't look now, but there's one too many in this room and I think it's you.

Every time I'm next to you, I get a fierce desire to be alone.

I can't believe that out of 100,000 sperm, you were the quickest!

If you ever become a mother, can I have one of the puppies?

There's nothing wrong with you that reincarnation won't cure.

Why don't you bore a hole in yourself and let the sap run out?

You're a good example of why some animals eat their young.



~~~ I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it!

engleza - de Eda la: 10/09/2004 23:19:57
(la: Test de limba engleza.)
Pt. cei care stiu engleza (sau asa cred ei). Nu consider ca sunt experta dar ma descurc destul de bine. Chiar am primit complimente. In schimb cei mai prosti vorbitori de engleza sunt turcii (din cate stiu eu), din cauza ca nu pot pronunta consoanele una dupa alta. Va dati seama ce iese...
In ceea ce ma priveste filmele si cantecele in engleza au avut o foarte mare influenta, incercam sa imit felul in care spuneau cuvintele si in final am invatat mai multa engleza de la televizor decat din scoala, nici nu mai urmaream subtitrarea. Alt atu este faptul ca chiar imi place engleza.

Dearest creature in creation,
Study English pronunciation.
I will teach you in my verse
Sounds like corpse, corps, horse, and worse.
I will keep you, Suzy, busy,
Make your head with heat grow dizzy.
Tear in eye, your dress will tear.
So shall I! Oh hear my prayer.
Just compare heart, beard, and heard,
Dies and diet, lord and word,
Sword and sward, retain and Britain.
(Mind the latter, how it's written.)
Now I surely will not plague you
With such words as plaque and ague.
But be careful how you speak:
Say break and steak, but bleak and streak; Cloven, oven, how and low,
Script, receipt, show, poem, and toe.
Hear me say, devoid of trickery,
Daughter, laughter, and Terpsichore,
Typhoid, measles, topsails, aisles,
Exiles, similes, and reviles;
Scholar, vicar, and cigar,
Solar, mica, war and far;
One, anemone, Balmoral,
Kitchen, lichen, laundry, laurel;
Gertrude, German, wind and mind,
Scene, Melpomene, mankind.
Billet does not rhyme with ballet,
Bouquet, wallet, mallet, chalet.
Blood and flood are not like food,
Nor is mould like should and would.
Viscous, viscount, load and broad,
Toward, to forward, to reward.
And your pronunciation's OK
When you correctly say croquet,
Rounded, wounded, grieve and sieve,
Friend and fiend, alive and live.
Ivy, privy, famous; clamour
And enamour rhyme with hammer.
River, rival, tomb, bomb, comb,
Doll and roll and some and home.
Stranger does not rhyme with anger,
Neither does devour with clangour.
Souls but foul, haunt but aunt,
Font, front, wont, want, grand, and grant, Shoes, goes, does.
Now first say finger, And then singer, ginger, linger, Real, zeal, mauve, gauze, gouge and gauge, Marriage, foliage, mirage, and age.
Query does not rhyme with very,
Nor does fury sound like bury.
Dost, lost, post and doth, cloth, loth.
Job, nob, bosom, transom, oath.
Though the differences seem little,
We say actual but victual.
Refer does not rhyme with deafer.
Foeffer does, and zephyr, heifer.
Mint, pint, senate and sedate;
Dull, bull, and George ate late.
Scenic, Arabic, Pacific,
Science, conscience, scientific.
Liberty, library, heave and heaven,
Rachel, ache, moustache, eleven.
We say hallowed, but allowed,
People, leopard, towed, but vowed.
Mark the differences, moreover,
Between mover, cover, clover;
Leeches, breeches, wise, precise,
Chalice, but police and lice;
Camel, constable, unstable,
Principle, disciple, label.
Petal, panel, and canal,
Wait, surprise, plait, promise, pal.
Worm and storm, chaise, chaos, chair,
Senator, spectator, mayor.
Tour, but our and succour, four.
Gas, alas, and Arkansas.
Sea, idea, Korea, area,
Psalm, Maria, but malaria.
Youth, south, southern, cleanse and clean. Doctrine, turpentine, marine.
Compare alien with Italian,
Dandelion and battalion.
Sally with ally, yea, ye,
Eye, I, ay, aye, whey, and key.
Say aver, but ever, fever,
Neither, leisure, skein, deceiver.
Heron, granary, canary.
Crevice and device and aerie.
Face, but preface, not efface.
Phlegm, phlegmatic, ass, glass, bass.
Large, but target, gin, give, verging,
Ought, out, joust and scour, scourging.
Ear, but earn and wear and tear
Do not rhyme with here but ere.
Seven is right, but so is even,
Hyphen, roughen, nephew Stephen,
Monkey, donkey, Turk and jerk,
Ask, grasp, wasp, and cork and work.
Pronunciation -- think of Psyche!
Is a paling stout and spikey?
Won't it make you lose your wits,
Writing groats and saying grits?
It's a dark abyss or tunnel:
Strewn with stones, stowed, solace, gunwale, Islington and Isle of Wight,
Housewife, verdict and indict.
Finally, which rhymes with enough --
Though, through, plough, or dough, or cough? Hiccough has the sound of cup.
My advice is to give up!!!

Eye Halve a Spelling Chequer - de MMM la: 23/11/2004 21:11:56
(la: Un nou forum: "Bancuri, glume, poante...")
Eye halve a spelling chequer
It came with my pea sea
It plainly marques four my revue
Miss steaks eye kin knot sea.

Eye strike a key and type a word
And weight four it two say
Weather eye am wrong oar write
It shows me strait a weigh.

As soon as a mist ache is maid
It nose bee fore two long
And eye can put the error rite
Its rarely ever wrong.

Eye have run this poem threw it
I am shore your pleased two no
Its letter perfect in it's weigh
My chequer tolled me sew.

-- Sauce unknown
