interstate pi

Translation: A very good repair job

Oh, um, so anyway, here's a translation of my earlier entry:

"This week the internet connection got so slow and uneven that I had to pick up the phone and call tech support. I described the transfer rate, which was a huge pile of crap. Downloads would hang too often, and sometimes a file would fail to load entirely. The problem turned out to be massive packet loss.

Today, some technicians came to the neighborhood and worked on the lines. They got the whole network fixed and running smoothly!"

It was written in Boontling, a slanguage spoken in Boonville, in Anderson Valley, located in Mendocino County, CA.

Got to get back to Moravia

This song is incredibly catchy but I have no idea what the words mean. It's by Thë Grätüïtöüs Ümläüts, a cheesemetal band from Madison, Wisconsin. Most of their songs sound heavier and, well, stupider than this, and normally I don't listen to that kind of thing. But this one is quite a toe-tapper! A totally cryptic toe-tapper.

Redenbacher
took my toast.
Cargo cellphone cult
's got the best of me.

Never thought I'd see
the Zuyder Zee again
Hanging over the edge
of a comfy cold chimpanzee grubstake pan.

Got to get back to Moravia
before my cheese runs out.
Got to meet her and explain
Where I've been since the grin on the chin let the cat out.

Oh no,
I stumbled in my locker again.
Once was a peach
But now is a pile of debris.

Got to get back to Moravia
before my well runs dry.
Got to meet her and explain
Why I took all the cookies from Adam & Steve.

Oh no,
I soaked up all the sunshine again.
Did I eat?
Did I see what happens to lawyer-shaped weasels?

Got to get back to Moravia
Before my pockets take over.
Got to meet her and explain once again
Why the rain in the plain stays bored and insane.

Got to get back to Moravia.
Got to get back to Moravia.
Got to get back to Moravia
again.
