I swore I wasn't going to care (but then hope does die last)

From this...

...to this...

The lovely [info]aldiara translated the lyrics so we could wallow in the pain together. (Which was magnified a thousand times when she compared them to the lyrics of Unzertrennlich.)

You’ve long been guiding my hand
I write the way we were in the sand
What you liked one moment ago, the sea takes away
Write deep within the water, cut my feet
I can’t do more than that anymore, for
Everything we were, the sea takes away
I’m not who I used to be, so
Exhale me
Wash me up to shore, for everything we
Wanted, the sea takes away
Burn me out like a too-proud cliff
As ghosts and ruins were ground to sand by the sea
You see I wish we’d done this differently
See how we end up in ruins
See how we fight for nothing really
You know it’s hope we’re
Giving up last

(German lyrics are here.)

And now I need to be writing trip report editing novel instead of moping and comfort-eating crisps. Stupid Show. Hopefully this will be the last time I have to say that.

Morning blues

It's just gone six in the morning. I've been up for an hour. I woke up from a vividly awful dream in which AWZ had cast a faux-Marc who wouldn't even fool soap viewers. Then I indulged in lovely, soul-strengthening comments on our blog from people who believe in us. Now a man is singing drunkenly in the street outside. And something we all love ended today.

In some parts of the world it's St. Patrick's day. Here it's just a very interesting start to Friday.

ETA: A start? Screw that. I'm going back to bed.

My grumps of the day

Dear Annoying PM Person:

Thank you for your message, which requested, and I quote, "I was wondering if there was anyway I could get a copy of all the Roman and Deniz videos you have. I know there are hundreds and downloading them one by one is taking me forever. I was hoping there was an easier way. Please say you can help." I apologise for all the time it is taking you to right-click-save, it must be arduous! Let me just put aside the insane amount of work I should be doing -- my animals don't need to eat -- and burn discs of all 700 episodes for you. I'm happy to do it -- the hours spent uploading all these pales in comparison to the few seconds it takes you to d/l. Just wondering, would you like me to hand deliver them to you as well? When would be a good time for me to drop by? I would hate to inconvenience you!

Ever eager to please,

Dear Annoying Russian Dude:

It's great that you want to sub the DeRo story in Russian. Only when you upload our videos to your youtube account, and just call them "Russian subs" without actually changing our English subs, it kinda defeats the purpose. But thanks for later asking "where did you get english subs and maybe you can send me it or show me where i can get it." Thing is, we don't exactly get English subs. Maybe learning German and vidding would help?

Cheerfully reigniting the Cold War,

Dear Annoying Commenter:

I might take your latest annoying comment criticising Vanessa for not being "punk rock" more seriously if you didn't list Jared Leto's band as your favourite. Please call someone ugly now so we can block you.

Loving double-secret probation,
