And this (the wrong language reel) is why the theatre I work at pre-screened all four of our prints (for the employees).

DUH!

Get over yourself, Vegan Republican. Everyone who learns a language starts off saying what they would in their native tongue in that language, and it comes off sounding weird. If your name really is "Ayeesha" then I doubt you have much claim to calling Japanese "my language."

I picked up English in just two years and I never sounded half as dumb as the average idiot who tries to spout off phrases he picked up watching tentacle porn.

And I will have you know that Ayesha is a traditional name from the Hanamizu region, which is just hours away from Kyoto where you claim to be. And you've never heard that name before!?! Maybe if you took a break from your tentacle porn and get out once in a while, you would actually meet some people who aren't named Katsuo or Wakame!

I feel for ya. I had that to happen for most copies of Lord of Rings trilogy. If it wasn't scratched it was green and if it wasn't that then it would be minus a few channels of sound.

The worst expereince that I have ever had was a misprinted copy of the The Playas Club. Every reel was two sproket holes off. I was unable to screen that horrible film the night before so during the first show we had a fricking riot in our largest house. They tore down curtains, broke 40 ozs. , slashed the seats and pissed on the floor.

It took us the whole weekend to repair the damage.

Vegan Republican, how do you write your name in Japanese? (I'm not arguing, just curious.)
 
2005-05-21 03:50:31 AM  
There is definately some bad japanese in here, but i'm no master myself.

It's interesting to see how many people here speak some japanese, i'm only up to 102 college level, but i can understand a fair amount. I wonder how many of these people who speak it are hardcore anime fans, want japanese women, or are just plain interested in the language and the culture itself. The latter always draws the fewest.

I took Japanese for four semesters because... um... I dunno. I do like anime, but I'm also fascinated by the culture, and more importantly the food. But after getting a D+ in Japanese this semester I think I'll stop pushing my luck.

I can't really speak it though. :P That probably should have been a hint to quit earlier.

If any of you want to view the Japanese text, bust out your Windows CDs and slip 'em in your drives, then go to Control Panel->Regional Settings. From there it differs between 2000/XP/ME/etc., but you can install support for other languages there.

If that isn't a joke, I guess you were lying.

FYI name "aisha" do exist. It shares same kanji as "aisa" but read differently. I have never met such case so it is likely very rare.

Ever heard that Japanese is a difficult language to learn? Well, it is. I've been here almost three years now, I teach Japanese military cadets at the National Defense Academy in Kannonzaki, and I take aikido 5 times a week, surrounded by Japanese students and a Japanese sensei. I *still* make mistakes all the time.

At least people are trying - how about giving them a little credit rather than being a jerk about it?

So "ayesha" doesn't have kanji? Is that why you tried to go with hiragana? Too bad your attempt at cool hiragana "wi" is tottaly wrong (one you used is "we").

And whats with Mos Burger logo? You do know that MOS is from Merchandising Organizing System, right? And you are related Sakurada family(you know the one that own the company?)? yeah, we believe you...

I remember back when we got The Phantom Menace. Lucasfilm made the GM and I sign agreements stating that we were the only ones allowed to even touch the print. They even sent along little white gloves and evertything.

Anyway, when we went to screen the movie (our policy was to screen everything with enough time to fix problems) we noticed that there were several white bubbles down one side of the screen through the second and third reels. Turns out that Technicolor let the prints dry with chemical bubbles on them. It amazed me, since no prints were sent out until the morning before the premiere, that they had such good response time. We had replacement reels within two hours. The people lined up outside were getting nervous when they saw another silver Fox box show up, knowing that the first ones were the movie. We ended up having to field worries for the rest of the day that Technicolor didn't send us the whole thing and they weren't going to get to see it in a few hours for the midnight show.

My favorite was when we were sent Halloween H20 with a backwards duplicate of the fourth reel instead of the fifth. That made for an unintentionally hilarious preview.

Does anyone here really believe The Japanese Vegan Republican's story? I mean, I knew quite a few Japanese in college and none of them were 1) Vegan, 2) Republican, 3) named Ayesha, and 4) obsessed with other people's competency of the Japanese language.

All my Japanese friends 1) had names like Yukiko, Kenichi, etc., 2) loved sushi (non-Vegan) and Cup of Noodles, 3) spoke pretty bad English, 4) knew how to write their own name in Japanese, and 5) were polite to a fault.

I'm declaring SHENNANIGANS!

2005-05-21 09:44:40 AM  
it took me several years of living in japan to catch that the above kanji is gaijin vs ta-to-jin.

lather-- it's not necessarily taboo, but it's not polite. It's closer to meaning "barbarian" than foreigner. Gaikokujin is slightly more proper, jin-gai (just reversing the syllables) is how it's said around foreigners who ideally won't "get it" (much like the word peckerwood was used by American slaves).

harr5754: Vegan Republican's Story = Phoney as 3 yen bill

Since no one seemed to pick up on anything or respond with anything more thoughtful than "OMG, u r so fake!!1", I hold to my contention that you guys suck at Japanese. And no, my name isn't it. If you spent any amount of time there, I'm not sure how you could not know about at least similar names.
 
2005-05-21 10:46:15 AM  
It's really quite amazing at how you're 100% transparent. You're full of shiat. You're not Japanese. You didn't learn English in a 2 year stretch, and you're lying about the kanji in your name.

I have probably 15 friends that are Japanese immigrants, all of whom have very bad English skills. These people studied for 4-5 years before they could even function in society here.

Next time don't try so hard.

I bit, the trolls got me.
 
2005-05-21 11:06:23 AM  
I have a Kanji textbook from 1976, and it lists 'gaijin' as a normal vocabulary word. It uses it in such sentences as "Gaijin don't eat sashimi very much." I think it is only reacently that the word was considered rude.

This is a nice online dictionary/translation site that I use pretty often. But it assumes you know at least hiragana:

Assuming it's not a typo, hanamizu probably is "flower water". Although with quick search there are no place named "flower water" anywhere near Kyoto. Only place I could find named hanamizu is in Yamanashi. Maybe it's just another lie of The Vegan Republican.

Try to speak better English next time. If you have such a problem with people messing up your language, try not messing up theirs.

Your text should have read: FYI, the name 'ayesha' does exist. It does not have kanji because there is no kanji name that matches. You are dumb. BTW, have you ever eaten at my family's restaurant?

As I said "Ochanomizu" is a name of station only and not a name of an area. Just like nobody is from Penn station (they're from New York city or Manhattan), nobody is living in Ochanomizu (they would be living in Chiyoda or Bunkyo).

Your lack of knowledge about Japan is pretty glaring. I seriously doubt you have ever lived in Japan and even if you did you calling Japanese your own language are laughable.

Vegan Republican, I don't "claim" to be in Kyoto. I'm right here, in Fushimi-ku, about a minute from Fushimi station on the Kintetsu line. Any Farker who lives in Kyoto and wants to confirm my location is very welcome indeed to contact me and come to my place for a beer, and to watch the Star Wars movies on DVD. You can e-mail me by putting the following together into a normal e-mail address: pattokun, at, mac, dot, com.

By the way, I don't take often take trips to places "just hours away". There's nothing "just" about travelling several hours to go to a made-up place called Runny Nose or Snot.

Ayesha is about as Japanese a name as my name, Patrick. You, sir, are a troll, and I hope you will be safely ignored from here on in.

tokyodrin, you have no idea how much I would love to take you up on your offer! But I have to wait...
