I haven't properly translated lyrics in way too long, so I thought I'd challenge myself.

Just today, I found Zessai on YouTube again and so somebody had posted the lyrics, which I've taken from musixmatch. I took the chance, and here I am, bringing you a new translation haha [Especially since I find the fan-translation I saw floating around on the Dir wikia to be kind of lacking to say the least.] I guess I needed this for my own satisfaction. If you find some yourself, the better!
Either way, prepare for a lot of notes. Kanji from where stated, romaji and translation done by me.

Don't repost without linking back to this post, and please leave me a message if you do, thanks ♪

So ARCHE/Sukekiyo. I saw someone comment on the video how hopeful this song is. Translating it myself, I'm not so sure that it is. ^^'
Despite the lyrics being quite overseeable, there's so much going on, my notes almost imploded haha. Just the way I like my lyrics - a monster.



Feel free to comment and object! But don't object too hard, my ego might not be able to take the pain ~.^

aoi thinking
I've noticed a sort of trend in me, that I fight and fight when things seem tough or even impossible, like a marathon through the desert, I run 19 miles, just to let it all go 100m before the goal. I had come to another of those points. Those 100m are easy, aren't they? Just sit down, and read, and write. Peasy.

But somewhere in the process of stopping and staring at the goal ahead of me, I felt like I couldn't move on. People I have known had already passed their second, third or fourth marathon, somewhere a thousand miles ahead of me, not having to do anything with me other than a short shared distance of a few miles or less.

So I just stood there, and shrugged.

And when the rain started to fall in the desert, I smiled, threw my runner's badge aside and started walking toward a small, deserted oasis that I'd been noticing for a while, but never really dared to find a path to. Because what you need in life is medals, right? What you need in life, is recognition written on a piece of paper.

Just give it whatever you gotCollapse )

That's it. There's that. Let it rain in the desert.

Brains are amazing sometimes.

So I started watching the Spanish horror movie Verónica, a random action born from me wanting something to watch while otherwise occupied, and Netflix thought I might be interested. For some reason I kept watching, despite it being Spanish craved more of my attention than originally intended.

And somehow the rock band the main character kept listening to sounded familiar to me. Not the songs so far but the voice. Reminded me of a song that I used to listen to a lot in my teenage years, when I was being engulfed by my mom's rock LPs and her tapes. Listened to them up and down and up and down.

And here was thus Spanish song among themCollapse )

Actually I had an answer to the "why not" pretty soon into doing this meme.
I used to love doing music memes. They're so much like oracles. They've always been creepily accurate for me. So after my friend Nell sent me one, I couldn't resist.

So I put my 12k songs (only about 93GB) on shuffle. Love these things and the last song oracle has been way too long ago, so thanks Nell.


INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Put your music player on shuffle.
2. Press forward for each question.
3. Use the song title as the answer to the question even if it doesn't make sense. NO CHEATING!

Let's start simple. How are you doing?Collapse )

I realise way too much time has gone by since my last non-private statement of how my life has progressed the past months. A lot of things have happened, and I keep making notes to maybe at some point make into some sort of entry, and it rarely ever happens, which makes all those amazing little and big news completely outdated by then, but hey, you have to start at some point.

The point is now.

To make a huge update a little shorter [a little... *cough*], I've applied to and successfully acquired some jobs in late August, which I meant to update about. My main job (both part-time actually, since my official full-time job is university aaaahahahah...hah... haaaaahhhh) is in sales, or correctly, so far it's been in door-sales for a company that sells products for well known Norwegian firms, both in door-sales and phone-sales. The second job is a tutoring job. I started out with one student, by now I have officially 3-4.

Meant to talk about one of those for nowCollapse )

I meant to add more recent ones, but in the spirit of trying to actually post more frequently, I'll uhm, try to do just that! 😝

Let me tell you a story.

The kind of story that is a little, let's say "painful", while it is happening, but probably quite funny in hindsight. Once it's a story, not an ongoing event.


Part I

So, about a week ago, at 6am I suddenly find myself awoken with a start (after about two hours of sleep, and tell you what, two hours of sleep and me don't agree. It's almost worse than not sleeping at all) to the noise of an alarm. So I sit in bed, heart pounding, get up, look around... realise it's not the fire alarm. What the fuck is making that noise?

Disoriented, I think I went to the bathroom first to get changed in case it was a fire alarm, but wait... it wasn't. The sound came from my stove alarm. Peculiar little thing, came pre-installed but without manual. Had freaked me out a few times after I had just moved in and was making food the normal way when it would suddenly go off. Just touching it makes the sound go away though, so all good at those particular instances.
Well, I touched it. Believe me, I did. Nothing happened.

I touched it a lot.Collapse )

Part II

But WAIT. There's a part two.

Friday, ten minutes to midnight.Collapse )

Well I'll see how this goes ahah.

Wow.
Thanks for letting me find her.




She reminds me a lot of Florence + the Machine. Similar type voice. Strong lyrics.
Thanks to The Affair too, for having me introduced to this song. Good show.


For the lazy.Collapse )
27th-Jul-2016 07:05 pm - Not the kind of Finale I had expected
isshi
That was not how I imagined my last day at work to be.
I was just supposed to work for flimsy three hours, then it'd be bye bye for good. I had not reckoned with a mass shooting, panic, and dead people.

My boss had gotten me some parting gifts, something that looked like a little worm inside of a tiny school cone, and a pizza made entirely out of jungle gummy-animals. I am yet to open any of those gifts.
He left me and my Bolivian lady co-worker around 5:30pm.
Despite it being sales-time, the weather was probably too good outside for there being too many customers on Friday evening. Not that it was bad. It was fairly ok.

I'd told her that I would need to give a friend back her keys - she lives on top of the mall, and since I'll be leaving Tuesday and wasn't sure I'd come back to the mall until then, I wanted to drop the keys off already then - and leave for a short time. At some point, around 5:45 I would say, when there weren't any customers around, I said "Hey, is it ok if I go now? Gotta go buy something real quick, too." So we had a little exchange of

Her: Mhhh do you have to go now? :3
Me: Well if you'd rather want, I can leave you here while it's super busy and you just deal with all the customers yourself =D
Her: Ehhhhhhhh noooooo!!! Hahah!
Me: So I better leave now?
Her: ... Hmm...
Me: I can stay a little while longer if you're lonely... ;D
Her: Hahah, noooo, you can goooo!

Later we had a conversation about "if you hadn't gone then...", but I will get back to that later.

So I grabbed my friend's keys, my phone, earphones, and my wallet.Collapse )
5th-Jun-2015 01:33 pm - [poem] Dream of Accuracy

I found one from a few years ago that, for some reason, I hadn't posted. Probably because it was too personal back then. If that even is a thing, poems tend to be personal.
Either way, it is a dream of accuracy indeed.
Let's stir demons in their dreaming.



「叙情」
Dream of Accuracy

(29. May 2011)

The ticking of the clock reminds me I still
haven't taken the steps I should take, I still
don't know which way to go
and my head so empty, no to or fro,
No thoughts clearly stay,
they just flutter, and wince, and ebb away.

No words to my feelings, no syllables, no songsCollapse )

Reticence in Silence

Can you hear that which is silent
Can you love what is unknown,
do the walls of crimson crumble,
or do they flourish as they've shown

Is it because it's spring? I mean, the climate changes have been severe. I'm talking 6℃ jumping to 20℃ kind of severe. Whether weather was what wrought it around, I do not know, but yes lately, it seems the crazies and weird have been on the rise. Some of them have been cause to both alertness and awareness of self, for me.

So here's 濤声 from ARCHE. I had intended to post this before Phenomenon, maybe even before 空谷の跫音, but something about it had stalled me. Now that both are done, this one flowed more freely.

So, the lyrics are from the booklet directly, romaji, translation are done by me. Notes are at the end of the post.

If you want to share this, please don't repost without linking back to this post, and leave me a message if you do, that would be very nice of you.

The lyrics didn't seem so complicated when I looked at them for the first few times, but when I tried translating them, I kept hitting walls |・ω・`) Either way, I did come to understand the lyrics, but they are a little... well... can I just not finish my sentence here? vague and hard to convey in other languages.
Either way, this song is filled with imageries of despair and self-harm. The single drop whose meaning isn't understandable (to the "I"), the deep crimson that is lukewarm, someone loved you tell goodbye, or at least try to (whether they hear or not is an entirely different matter), screams, and the beating pulse with that gentle smile, also the way he never ends the "yes, I…" thing. Yes, I... what? It's not just his true feelings he's kept hidden inside his heart, he hides a lot of meaning of the song itself. What are that person's ideals, what is he trying to say, what with all those screams, also what does the "deep crimson" depict exactly, ... we can guess, and we can picture things, but we will never know for sure. All we know of is the despair and pain.

As ever, feel free to discuss, object, share opinions etc.

1st-Jan-2015 06:23 pm - [翻訳] Dir en Grey - Phenomenon
lily
Another one from ARCHE. I had intended to do a different one before I'd take a look at Phenomenon, but somehow, Phenomenon took over and uh, just galloped away with me at4am.

I took on these lyrics entirely differently than how I usually do, simply because translating alone doesn't really help much in this case. I mean, wow I understood this song much better than I could ever translate it after I charged right into the meaning ahaha. Picking the meanings in their singularity apart is waaaay too… ineffective, so I'll just hit you with explanations via a messy interpretation of the song at the end of the translation, with a few exceptions. I don't usually do it like that, trying to keep it “free to interpret as you wish”, but in the case of this song, I find it’s just not understandable if left uninterpreted, so I just went up and typed away with all the imageries and, yeah, please bear with the messiness augh.

NOTE however, this song is VERY explicit, aka, entirely sexual, so in case you're sensitive to that, have a big fat

NSFW

I transcribed the lyrics from the booklet directly, romaji and translation are my work. Prepare for even more notes at the end of the post than before.

As I said, I don't usually deliver interpretations with my translations, but this one was very persistent, so why not.
When I first listened to Phenomenon, it immediately became one of my favourites from the album. I think it was the compelling rhythm and then the last lines with the yuudachi that just carried me off. When I first read the lyrics, I was a little perplexed haha, because I had not expected those kinds of words with that kind of music. Then again, knowing what it's about, the music does fit just perfectly. The rhythm, the way he audibly goes mad during the course of the song, then again catches himself with the sheer beauty of the last lines, which also depict the very beauty of the showers... hah. I can basically see Kyo dance across the stage in his typical way.

Hokay, I'm done. Outori, out.

Hope you enjoy, feel free to discuss and object etc.

I bring another translation from ARCHE. This here is probably my most favourite song out of the whole album. It flows perfectly, which 濤声 also does, but... ah. Either way, after the 15th time of listening or so, I realized just how much that song is me. No wonder I love it.

I transcribed the lyrics from the booklet directly, romaji, translation, blood-and-sweat-shedding are done by me. Prepare for a mountain of notes at the end of the post.

Hou what, I'm done? 8D Okay, that was a lot of notes. I like notes though. I like to clarify certain things in lyrics translations, and I find notes to be entirely too helpful to omit them.
Footsteps in a lonely valley. The imagery I find breathtaking. There's really not that much text, but there's so much in the text, that I find the song so strong. But that might just be me~

Hope you enjoy, feel free to discuss and object etc.

Alright.

I find, Kyo's lyrics have changed quite a bit. I'm not an expert, but looking at the lyrics from ARCHE and comparing loosely with older lyrics I've read closer, you can definitely feel a different approach to things. I don't dislike it.

The new album is out, and obviously I had to do something about it. My good friend just bought the album, too, so I had a chance to scan the booklet and get my hands on the lyrics. Another reason for why I had to do something about it. Also, I had nothing better to do [read: I had a dozen better things to do], in short, the timing was perfect to spend a few nights sleepless and transcribe these.

So, as usual, the kanji are fresh and steamy out of the booklet, the romaji is done by me. Should there be any notes, they'll be found at the end of the post. Since I won't include translations in this post, there probably won't be many though.

Romanization isn't such a huge job as translating, but I guess credits would be nice still, yepp, I like credits.

Thanks and enjoy!

I was delighted to find that ARCHE included quite a number of songs with kanji-titles, usually means "lyrics I'll like", and I wasn't wrong this time either. Somehow, I immediately gave the songs with kanji in their titles a good rating on my itunes after I'd listened for a few beats *laughs* Yess... I do love that album. I really do. Such wonderful songs.

What do you think? Which are your favourites? Why?

Also, if you do find typos, please tell me. I do take great care with my work, but sometimes, especially after concentration is drained to the very rock bottom, mistakes find a way to slither in.
