My spanish is no bueno..... Took it from 7th grade to 9th grade. Switched to German in 10th grade and taught myself French.... So I know a lot of a little bit of languages! ha!
Avatar 12:36pm geezerette:

jaja! me amo los kit-kats tambien.

A few packs of Mounds bars are going back to CVS. They make a sweet siren sound, but must....not....open....

Candy corn or vegemite?
  12:40pm Dave B.:

I think that’s an Aquarian thing.

Took German in Jr. High, tried French post high school, Japanese during the married years and learned a little Farsi the summer of 1977 in Tehran

I can still count to 10 in all of them
Avatar 12:41pm northguineahills:

@Webmaster Henry: Isn't that phrase from Ren & Stimpy?

I like candy corn, but I don't eat candy very often.

Roach motel?

I'm sure R&S were constant subway riders when these ads were prevalent!

Las cucarachas no pueden mas caminar. Porque?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:43pm Ike:

I'm trying to brush up. I've been listening to an audiobook that's (re-)teaching me to say things like "puedo preparar el cafe" and "¿Puedo reservar una mesa?"
Avatar 12:43pm northguineahills:

Tried to take Latin in HS, but not enough people signed up, so, I ended up w/ Spanish. I took Japanese in elementary school, but I forgot mostly everything but profanity. I'm pretty good at Quebecois and and can read German. After that my linguistic prowess quickly diminishes.
  12:45pm Dave B.:

In elementary school?!?! Geez...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:46pm Webhamster Henry:

@βrian: Porque le falta marihuana que fumar!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:47pm Meghan:

God, I wish I took a language in elementary school..... I know how to curse people out and swear in Quebecois!

Child brains whizz-wizardy at language. Brain so old now. Only wants Mounds bars and music.

@Dave B: I was at a school on a Navy base in Japan (granted it was a 'gifted' [not my label] class)
Avatar 12:51pm geezerette:

Anyone speak Catalan? Friends of ours live in Barcelona. She learned Spanish and then Catalan. He still speaks only English, but loves not knowing what people are saying and just walks around having adventures.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:52pm Webhamster Henry:

I'm familiar with lots of languages, and I have to say, of WFMU DJs, David Dichelle of Continental Subway has the best pronunciation of the multilingual back announcing he does. Ken is a kind of El Bloombito, but he revels in it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:52pm Meghan:

El Bloomito.... hahahaha. He totally is! Love it!
Avatar 12:54pm βrian:

Y mi también. No tengo nada que fumar!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:54pm Meghan:

Catalan has the lisp, right? I just assumed it was Spanish with a lisp... Shows my ignorance. The joys of dialects...
Avatar 12:56pm northguineahills:

Castilian is one w/ the pronounced lisp. Catalan has a bit of a lisp, but it's the words and spelling the differ quite a lot from Spanish-Spanish.
Avatar 12:56pm Sem Chumbo:

Visited Barcelona once, and found a pretty rare Dylan bootleg. I took it to the counter and said "Lo siento, no hablo Catalán ". The clerk looked me in the eye and said 'Lo siento, no hablo español ". Cracked me up.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 12:58pm Meghan:

Lo Siento, no hablo nada!
  12:59pm Stãnley on the road:

I doubt these boys know what hard work really means.
Avatar 12:59pm geezerette:

Think it's Castilian that has the lisp. Catalan is crazy! High school Spanish won't help at all! I'm a stupid monolingual American. For most people it's much better to learn languages in early childhood.
Avatar 1:02pm Sem Chumbo:

Maybe here is why Catalan is so unusual:"According to Ethnologue, the lexical similarity between Catalan and other Romance languages is: 87% with Italian; 85% with Portuguese and Spanish; 76% with Ladin; 75% with Sardinian; and 73% with Romanian." via wikithingy.
  1:02pm Stãnley on the road:

Sorry where are my manners. Good afternoon Meghan, listening fraternity and our Unleaded Friend.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:05pm Meghan:

ha! yes, manners! How dare you! Oh wait, you are on the road.... road manners are different, you are forgiven!
Avatar 1:05pm Sem Chumbo:

@Señor Stãnley: perhaps unlearned friend would be closer to the mark.
  1:09pm Stãnley on the road:

@Meghan gone are the days of unwashed gnarly Stanley the traveller. It's very much a certain level of comfort nowadays. Mind you I like to think I still had good manners when I appeared to the locals like some sort of sea monster.
Avatar 1:12pm geezerette:

We went to a giant Dia De Los Muertos party last weekend and saw a few "Donald es un pendejo" t-shirts. Should have bought one!
Avatar 1:15pm Sem Chumbo:

What odds there exists now a Trumpian Piñata?
Avatar 1:17pm geezerette:

Sem, there are! They were the most popular of all in both Mexico and SoCal a year ago!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:18pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Catalan is a kind of sailboat, I thought.
Avatar 1:19pm geezerette:

haha! :D Howdy Ken FHP!
Avatar 1:20pm Sem Chumbo:

Heh, @geezerette.

May I suggest that Malcolm Lowry's Under the Volcano, set in Mexico on the Day of the Dead, as a useful primer to that special day?
Avatar 1:21pm geezerette:

That's a great movie too!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:22pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Hi, geez. That must have been a great party.
Avatar 1:23pm Sem Chumbo:

Huston had the touch on that one, despite a pretty tortuous story line, @geezerette.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:26pm Meghan:

My neighbor had a Trump pinata from before the election that he made. The hope was to smash it at the end..... sadly I think it still exists....
Avatar 1:30pm βrian:

Catalan is obviously the language of cats.

Avatar 1:31pm geezerette:

Ken, it was! Happens every year at Hollywood Forever Cemetary. The altars are incredible, hundreds of thousands of people show up ; entire families. Everyone is sweet, friendly and kind to each other. There's great music, food, costumes, dancing...anyone visiting LA in late Oct. should go.
Avatar 1:31pm still b/p:

Yes, and cats always demanding independence.
Avatar 1:32pm geezerette:

Funny, my friend probably learned it from her cat! :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:33pm Meghan:

Well, aren't cats always demanding independence?
Avatar 1:34pm geezerette:

Meghan, love your play list!
Avatar 1:34pm βrian:

And they're naturally fluent if French. Colette knew this.
Avatar 1:36pm geezerette:

Love Colette. :)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:48pm listener james from westwood:

Oh, this CB/KV track is so exquisite.
Avatar 1:57pm Sem Chumbo:

Many thanks for this afternoon's spins, Meghan. I'll look for you, and the underwater ones, a little farther along the road. See ya later.
Avatar 1:57pm still b/p:

My guess is it was Walter Pidgeon reading the Pit and the Pendulum in the last track. Do I win another Kit Kat?
Avatar 1:58pm northguineahills:

Thanks Meghan!
Avatar 2:00pm geezerette:

Thanks Meghan!
