Shakespearean insults, with cats.

7 more here.

I did not realize how very perfect cats were at delivering Shakespeare’s insults until now.

Weekly World Music: “Tamzara” by Inga and Anush.

Believed to have evolved from an ancient Assyrian dance honoring the god Tammuz, the Tamzara is a folk dance common to Anatolia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Greece. The style of music and dancing varies from region to region; This version is from Armenia, and is performed by sibling-duo Inga and Anush Arshakyan in their typical pop-influenced style. I haven’t been able to get a better English translation, but the lyrics I could find are below. 

Երկինք կըլնեմ շողշողուն, դու ի՞նչ կըլնես, յար ջան,

Աստղ կըլնեմ շողշողուն, ծոցիդ շող տամ, յար ջան:

Բամբակ կըլնեմ շողշողուն, դու ի՞նչ կըլնես, յար ջան,

Կրակ կըլնեմ շողշողուն, քեզ կայրեմ, յար ջան…

 

I will be bright sky, what will you be, dear love?

I will become bright star, to shine through your bosom, dear love.

I will be bright cotton, what will you be, dear love?

I will become bright fire, will burn you, dear love.

 

Բարակ մեջքիդ յոթը ծամ,

Թամզարա, հայ թամզարա,

Սրտիդ միջին ունես կամ, թամզարա

Հա´յ թամզարա, թամզարա,

Ջա´ն թամզարա, թամզարա:

 

On your tiny hip 7 braid

Tamzara, hay Tamzara,

In your heart you have, or tamzara

Hay! tamzara, tamzara,

Jan! tamzara, tamzara

 

Բռնեմ պաչեմ, չարչարեմ, թամզարա

Հայ թամզարա, թամզարա, հայ թամզարա

Էլ որ չասես. «Խամ ես, խամ», թամզարա,

Հա´յ թամզարա, թամզարա,

Ջա´ն թամզարա, թամզարա:

 

I’ll catch and kiss you, torment you, tamzara

Hay Tamzara, tamzara, hay tamzara,

for not say me again - you are foreigner, foreigner- tamzara

Hay tamzara, tamzara

Jan tamzara, tamzara.

 

Թոնիր վառեմ թեժ կըլնի,

Լոթըլո լոթըլո լոթըլո յաման,

Սիրահարը գիժ կըլնի,

Լոթըլո, լոթըլո, լոթըլո յաման:

 

It will be hot when i’ll burn tonir (Armenian national oven)

lot’lo lot’lo lot’lo yaman,

the lover will be crazy one

Lot’lo lot’lo lot’lo yaman,

 

Յար ջան, տուն-տեղ որ դնինք

Լիքը ճիժ ու պիժ կըլնի,

Սիրահարը գիժ կըլնի

Լոթըլո լոթըլո լոթըլո յաման…

 

Dear love, When we will create our home,

There will be a lot of children,

The lover will be crazy one

Lot’lo lot’lo lot’lo yaman

I jumped into an online tailoring course with dreams of improving my skills but I’m definitely struggling with a new skill set and feeling shy about mistakes.

Need to finish up my skirt sloper tonight and then turn that in along with the bodice. I hate turning in work that I think isn’t right, but I don’t have time to redo it. Something was either off in my measurements or in the video instruction I watched, but either way, I’m not convinced I drafted properly. Hope the teacher can help me sort out just what I fucked up. :/
