My daughter started binging "Go: Live your way" which is an English-dubbed version of an Argentinian teen telenovela ("Go: Vive a Tu Manera"). Basically "High School Musical" set in Buenos Aires.

What I wonder about that show...
1. The songs are mostly in Spanish but a lot of them have random lines in English. What's up with that?
2. Everyone wears t-shirts with slogans in English. Is that a thing in Argentina or are they doing that for English-language markets?
3. They show translated subtitles for the song lyrics. I wonder if the lyrics are really that bad or if something is lost in translation.
Even if the piano player can't play, keep the party going.

1) Spanglish. +, some things aren't really rendered in Spanish, the (American) English cliche or buzz term etc rules. Also, neither coca nor cola need translating; like that basically. ;)
2) it's probably a thing anywhere. Silk-screening Argentinian messages on t-shirts is perhaps not done to the degree Americans do.
3) (if there are rhymes) it's going to be some work to make rhymes work one to the other. Probably a mixture of both poor quality and 'it doesn't really travel anyway'.

America Rules, OK :P

ive been reading up on cat diarrhoea.
my cat has it, wasnt just a random search for fun.
the amount of things that cause cats to have diarrhoea, im surprised they ever do solid turds.
from thewind blowing the wrong way while they poop to asteroids hitting while thry poop and pretty much everything in between :o

ive ordered worming tablets, hopefully they will fix it, if not ill have to take him the vets, where i worry hell shit either in his carrier and all 9ver himself, or all over me as i try to get him in or out.
neither is on my list of things to do!

also, "acute diarrhoea is anything up to a couple of weeks, chronic is anything that lasts longer than a few weeks".
if i had the shits for up to two weeks i think id already be calling it pretty chronic :o
who is waiting 2 weeks?
i mean, ok, other than the runny shit, he seems fine, still running about, still eating and drinking, still even enjoying ocassional belly rubs, with no discomfort, but if the worming doesnt have any effect through thursday (it arrives tomorrow) ill ring the vets friday, not wait and see.
poor little feller 🐯

1) Spanglish.
for some reason unbeknownst to me, when i was a child. you could by liquorice which of course is black, and the red stuff around here was spanglish. not sure it had anything to do with the language portmanteau.
now it seems its just called red liquorice.

Just ordered a gaming keyboard which is one of the last which doesn't have those blinky-dinky rainbow colours from underneath the keys, with options in the software to make it light up like fireworks, but is rather held plain and modest (which I really like). Read 2 tests about it, where I read in the "cons" section that the writer criticized the keyboard for not being obtrusive enough... WTF is wrong with people these days? Jeez.
Plugins and a DAW. On a operating system. Which runs on a computer.

Mine has blinky-dinky rainbow colours. When it gets cold I put on the 'fireplace' setting.

:tu: :)

The background lighting is for one purpose here: To see which key I'm hitting in the dark. I know, too obvious. I like blue light though.

Yeah, Ive actually just got it permanently set to white or light blue. The exception is a couple of games which link to the RGB controller and highlight the keys, etc.
