Rob and Dane on the set of LIFE | March 11th
This is absolutely amazing. She’s speaking absolute jibberish in pitch-perfect accents (at least for the ones I’m fluent in, but the rest sound pretty great too). I am in awe. Her Swedish anterior vowels are freaking PERFECT. <3
She does use a few keywords at least for certain languages, like “bonjour” for French, which adds to the sense that you can almost understand it (at least for a second-language speaker or if you imagine you’re in a crowded room).
Another person who’s famous for doing impressions of languages while not actually speaking them was Sid Caesar, who called it “double-talk”. Here’s a Language Log post on how he learned it.
The Spanish is one curse word every two nonsence words, which means she’s speaking perfect spanish.
she made a second video on her channel where she re-does some of the languages because they could have been improved on, but this is hilariously solid nonetheless
we live in a world where the pizza arrives faster than the police
Well the pizza driver faces consequences when their job isn’t done right.
Imagine if Sirius could have raised Harry and when he sent a howler to him in his second year for driving the car to school.
"I’M NOT EVEN MAD, I’M ACTUALLY IMPRESSED. MERLIN’S BLOODY BALLS I’M PROUD."
And Remus in the background “SIRIUS NO.”
White privilege is being the #1 consumers of welfare, food stamps, general government aid, and illegal drugs, but STILL blaming POC for all of those things as well as incarcerating them at an exponentially higher rate.
this period of the simpsons where homer is pretty clueless but still tries hard to be a good father because he does love his kids is my favourite, so many feelings
Something I really really liked about a few of the Homer/Lisa episodes in the earlier seasons of the show was how it paints a really sweet yet unconventional father/daughter relationship, basically in the way that Homer is a parental force to Lisa, so too is Lisa a parental force to Homer.
It’s really highlighted in one particular scene in the “future” episode “Lisa’s Wedding”, where Homer has a nice conversation with her just before her wedding.Homer: Little Lisa, Lisa Simpson. You know, I always felt you were the best thing my name ever got attached to. Since the time you learned to pin your own diapers, you've been smarter than me. Lisa: Oh, Dad -- Homer: No, no, let me finish. I just want you to know I've always been proud of you. You're my greatest accomplishment and you did it all yourself. You helped me understand my own wife better and taught me to be a better person, but you're also my daughter, and I don't think anybody could have had a better daughter than you-- Lisa: Dad, you're babbling. Homer: See? You're still helping me.
