*** Now talking in #suburbansenshi
*** Topic is '-= Sailor Lead Crow is not very Aerodynamic =-'
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Man, it's been such a long time since I saw Ranma 1/2
<// J_Daito //> ...
<// J_Daito //> Last time I went down to Nerima I got my ass kicked by a panda bear
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> heh
<// J_Daito //> its not funny man
<// J_Daito //> a ing Panda bear!!!
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Look at it this way... at least it wasn't a small black pig
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> ...
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Anyway
* J_Daito cries black tears of pain
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> So after years of not seeing Ranma I remembered something crazy I had discovered way back when I had first started watching
<// J_Daito //> That Cologne is a freak?
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> uhh, no
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> I was looking up song translations
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> in particular one for the song "Red Shoe Sunday"
<// J_Daito //> and?
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> The translation was SICK, man
* J_Daito perks up
<// J_Daito //> in what way, exactly?
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Ok, check this out:
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> (Shampoo) Blue skies Blimp
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Suspicious Uncertain ZIG-ZAG flying
<// J_Daito //> So... Shampoo is singing in a stream of conciousness while suspiciously eyeing a blimp?
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Sunday Congestion 1:30 PM
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> You still haven't come yet.
<// J_Daito //> (snort)
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> ...... It's boring.
<// J_Daito //> Heh. I'll BET it is, Shampoo. I'll BET it is.
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> (Kasumi) Crosspiece bridge Red brick
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Looking downward. I turn around. Black sunglasses
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> In the middle of the summer, suits all in black
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Someone is aiming."
<// J_Daito //> W...T...F...?!
<// J_Daito //> Sweet, Gentle Kasumi... encounters a black ops squad in the park?!
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> I KNOW
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> It gets WORSE man:
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> (Still Kasumi) ...... Come here quickly.
<// J_Daito //> Yeah, you better be calling for the medics. Don't want that suppressed psycho Kasumi going off
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> huh?
<// J_Daito //> no human can be as innocent as she pretends. She's got to be hiding a BFG under that long dress of hers.
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> ...
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> ANYWAY
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> it goes on:
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> (Ranma) Digital crying
<// J_Daito //> WTF is this, the Matrix? Were those guys in black Agents?
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> (Nabiki) An enigmatic stranger
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Already (All) I don't even know if he was taken away by the foreign country's boat.
<// J_Daito //> So... the matrix agents are forcibly instituting deportation proceedings while Shampoo is giving an blimp the evil eye and waiting for Ranma to come?
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> ^_^;;
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> (Nabiki) Bicycle The person's different.
<// J_Daito //> Yeah, them matrix agents are tricky like that
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Surprised I turn around A laugh
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Wait a minute, wait a minute, Miss.
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Do you believe in God?
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> ...... What?
<// J_Daito //> The hell? What's a preacher doing there? And asking Tendo _Nabiki_, of all people!? That's like asking Satan if he will accept the Jesus!
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> (All) Hey, look! (Kasumi) Someone is chasing
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> someone over here.
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Already (All) This park is being enveloped.
<// J_Daito //> Ok, so to sum this up... Shampoo is eyeing a blimp waiting for Ranma to come, Kasumi is deadlocked with a sniper working for either agents of the Matrix or the MIB, who are after some gaijin they want to send back to his boat, some other guy is trying to preach the Gospel to Nabiki and now the park is being surrounded by cops chasing fugitives? Hell of a Sunday!
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Yeah, really. *we* don't get into this much trouble.
<// J_Daito //> heh
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> anyway, the whole thing is here, in case you think this is BS
<--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=-->
<// J_Daito //> That's some ed up right there, man

I looked at those lyrics at that one web link and Yikes!! This is one of those really awful fan translations that never go away. Even the lyrics Viz put on their videos isn't all that great. I should translate my own version... I really wish all those bad fan translations would die a painful death along with those who do them.

~~Andy's been telling me about this CD. The lyrics do make a bit more sense in the Japanese from what I'm reading. At least, they read more properly. What they're talking about doesn't.
