Yay Jazzileinchen!!!

Beats me why they bothered making an English version, most English-speaking people liked the original German song better. At least both versions were sung by the same hot singer (speaking as a child of the 80s).

That's like a new catchphrase. And its German translation.

Das ist wie ein neues Schlagwort, und die deutsche Übersetzung.

I mean, if this clarifies, that there are songs like Summer in the City, Yes Sir I Can Boogie, House of the Rising Sun, Kung-Fu Fighting, Crocodile Rock, Down by the River etc.

All these songs, and many more, have versions (from the 60's-70's) that have been "translated" into Finnish. And yes, they all suck. And yes, the Finnish versions are all hits in Finland (not that I'm a huge fan of the originals either, but at least they're the originals, plus they're usually made by quite talented people and have some good stuff in them too, instead of the Finnish versions which are simply taking the music and replacing the song with the song's melody sung inferiorly with dumber lyrics).

Here are examples in Finnish: Nousevan Auringon Talo (House of the Rising Sun - in this one the words are actually the worst part, but of course you can't understand. It's still pretty bad though), Kesäkatu (Summer in the City), Kung-Fu Taistelee (this one luckily is not completely serious but that kinda makes it even worse).

I couldn't find the worst examples on Youtube (although the kung-fu fighting is perhaps one of them), but then I didn't really want to either. The worst (of the examples) would definitely be the versions of Crocodile Rock (which we had to stand through in elementary school for who knows how many time) sung in a high, nasal voice, as well as Yes Sir I Can Boogie, which has the most idiotic lyrics you can get (and nothing about boogie anyways) and its sung by some woman who cannot sing in any way. It's wailing more than singing. That one I had to stand through for a short while yesterday.

Proves one shouldn't listen to music in the radio.

Unless it's a good radio show, probably on late at night.

Buy a rabbit, Hammie. It's a very poor substitute I know, but you can cuddle rabbits. They don't like it much, but it's better than cuddling a stuffed toy.

Yesterday, and this is all true, it rained for a while so hard that drains actually sprouted water up. There were a couple with the pressure so large, that the water sprouted to about 30 cms and pushed up the cover with it.

It was a really interesting sight, like a fountain. The cover bouncing from one side to the other, streets flooding with water, water spraying up...

Dear Threadians.

Whilst decorating the spare room last week the thought occurred that, God willing, I'm going to be a dad in about 8 weeks.

Does this mean I finally have to grow up, or just that I can still be immature but very tired all the time?

Something like that.
Enjoy the ride. All of a sudden the kids are 18 and you wonder what happened.

No you don't wonder what happened. It's really obvious.

Or wait, is this like one of the movies where the kids are suddenly 18, you are a lot older and everyone's driving flying cars?
