251. translation: v6 - "ashiato"

Mar. 21st, 2017 | 10:50 pm
music: V6 - 足跡
posted by: sociologique in sasurai

I'm alive, I promise! My brain has just been mush for a variety of reasons but I wanted to translate this song the second I heard it because it made me cry because I'm a giant baby. Add this to my ever-growing list of songs that will make me cry if I see them live. At this point, I should just get life jackets for everyone in the venue because I'm going to drown the entire place in my tears.

250. keep the earth below my feet

Oct. 6th, 2016 | 09:31 pm
music: Mumford & Sons - "Below My Feet"
posted by: sociologique in sasurai

This one is basically The Many Angles of Mt. Rainier, everyone's favourite Decade Volcano that's one day going to blow and kill us all! (I say all that with love. I love you, Mountain). Anyway, I took most of these on Stevens Canyon Road between Ohanapecosh and Paradise. (Also, I keep forgetting to reply to comments so please don't think I'm ignoring you, I love and appreciate you all, I'm just bad at replying right now) (Also too -- hey! 250 entries! (well, 250 that I'm counting) That's pretty rad! Thanks for sticking around, friends!)

let me learn from where i have beenCollapse )

249. i want to live where soul meets body

Sep. 26th, 2016 | 01:46 pm
music: Death Cab for Cutie - "Soul Meets Body"
posted by: sociologique in sasurai

Saturday was National Public Lands Day and that meant free admission to all state and national parks so I took my tiny human for a drive through the park and a short hike through an old growth forest with trees that are estimated to be over 1,000 years old (meaning there are trees that were there during the Norman conquest of England). Also, remember that episode of GeI where they hike to the Mononoke forest? That's what it reminded me of.

a melody softly soaring through my atmosphereCollapse )

248. translation: messages from v6 vol.422: sakamoto masayuki

Hello, internet! Now that my brain is no longer mush, I can finally get back to translating things and not taking 50 years to do so (I hope). Here's a quick thing to get me back into it before I work more on the 20th anniversary pamphlet. And while I'm here, I just want to state that Maa-kun is all of us. Which means he's the worst. My poor bb you're such a dork ;__; .

Piano and tap are like that too, but there's great joy in seeing the fruits of your labours when doing something difficultCollapse )

247. where the boats go

Jul. 14th, 2016 | 09:26 pm
music: M83 - "Wait"
posted by: sociologique in sasurai

I wasn't going to take my camera with me today, but this is probably the last chance I'll have for quite some time to go out and shoot, so I did. Only got a couple, since it's hard to simultaneously wrangle a stubborn dog who refuses to go near the water and take pictures, but I still got a few. Mostly boats and logs and shit, since this is right next to the ferry terminal. One of them, anyway. We have so many ferries.

give your tears to the tideCollapse )

Good morning! and hello from my new house! I finally got my new desk set up and I need a break from unpacking, so here's a short, quick, cute little jweb email from Go (sent last Friday but moving, no desk, etc).

Good morning!Collapse )

245. alone and prone in the half-light

May. 14th, 2016 | 09:25 am
music: LCD Soundsystem - "Get Innocuous!"
posted by: sociologique in sasurai

We've had a gorgeous Spring here but I haven't been able to get out and go hiking (well, I mean technically I could but I shouldn't right now), so this is the first time I've gone out with my camera since September. We went to the Point Defiance Zoo yesterday for my birthday but only the Sumatran Tigers were out (I wanted to see the Clouded Leopards but they were all asleep), so here's some aminals.

and late to the real lifeCollapse )

244. translation: Since 1995 to Forever pamphlet: my favourite single best 10

music: V6 - "Timeless"
posted by: sociologique in sasurai

I haven't translated stuff in a while for... many reasons, but I want to again, so I'm back with a short thing. I'm still working on the rest of the interviews in this pamphlet, but here's a thing just to get me back into translating. Okada gets kinda deep in this one, so if you'll excuse me, I'm gonna go take these feelings about his feelings and cry a lot.

I keep having time at the end of the day to do stuff, so I thought I'd start filling in some gaps of songs I haven't translated. Here's a quick one that I love.
