I'm just busy clogging up the blogosphere with semi-meaningless words. Don't mind me ~
London student, aspiring author, attempting to speak Japanese, 20
Cezar - It’s My Life — if anyone was unfortunate enough to miss Eurovision last night, at least watch this song, it’s Romania’s entry. And oh sweet falsetto, it’s eurovision perfection. (Tho Sweden’s hosting and smörgåsbord win for me)
I actually just looked this up and found out some interesting things.
Young MacGuffin speaks in a North East Doric dialect which obviously is hard to understand. Originally he was going to just speak gibberish but his voice actor, Kevin McKidd, suggested he try a few lines in Doric and Pixar loved it and kept it. Found a couple translations too, but only one of them applies to this gif set and that’s the third one after Merida gave her speech about letting them choose who they marry:
“It’s just not fair making us fight for the hand of a girl who doesn’t want anything to do with it. You know?”
Performers who do their research make me incredibly happy and my respect for them increases.
aww, he’s concerned about Merida not wanting to go through with it
I SHIP IT SO HAAARD
she can be the fiery warrior queen and he’ll be the gentle giant king who takes care of the children and runs the castle
and Merida will translate
In a scene that was later cut, Merida showed interest in him but was disappointed that she couldn’t understand him. I totally few-years-later ship them.
Oh goddamnit now I ship them too.
Reading nooks with views of the hip Shimokitazawa neighbourhood in Tokyo, Japan
A quick hop from Shibuya and Shinjuku, Shimokitazawa is a nice change of pace from the craziness of the big city. We stumbled upon this little shop selling books and curiosities with seating areas where one can take in the scene over a cuppa, and feel safe about burying one’s face in a book and being lost in thoughts.
