Palau de la Virreina. Como nota curiosa, durante la dictadura de Primo de Rivera, les cambiaron los nombres a los gigantes de la ciudad. Así desde 1923 hasta 1984 el nombre de estos gigantes era de Fernando e Isabel.

No puedo creer que recién me siente a escribir sobre este evento...demostración de Shodo (caligrafía japonesa) de Tsubasa Kimura junto al guitarrista Pepe Camacho. También pudimos disfrutar de las voces de la Coral Asia Barcelona... ... así como de diferentes grupos de música tradicional y moderna, todos ellos con sus fans incondicionales

Interesting documentary about fan subtitles!! Part 1: Once upon a time it was really difficult to subtitle videos. In our days, almost anyone with a PC can do it. Part 2: In the past, fansubers tried to translate the dialogs, and give explanatory notes on attached text (booklet). Now, you have to pause every 2 min. to read the notes on the screen. Otaking's got a point here. Part 3: Attention should be on the anime, not on flashy fonts... and leave the words there! I can't sing the openings with those animated fonts! I agree. Part 4: It's difficult to translate, so I don't agree with this part. I mean fansubs are not professionals. Yes, they can do better (tips in part 2 and 3 are great and can help fansubers to improve), but they are not professionals. I think they translate the best they can, with care and love to their translations. Part 5: Stop crying, man! There are still good fansubs out there, go find them! Fansubs rocks!

I get many e-mails with jokes, but I try to post only the ones that make me laugh a lot (LOL)... enjoy it :) ____________________________________________________________ After getting all of Pope Benedict's luggage loaded into the limo, (and he doesn't travel light), the driver notices the Pope is still standing on the curb. 'Excuse me, Your Holiness,' says the driver, 'Would you please take your seat so we can leave?' 'Well, to tell you the truth,' says the Pope, 'they never let me drive at the Vatican when I was a cardinal, and I'd really like to drive today.' 'I'm sorry, Your Holiness, but I cannot let you do that. I'd lose my job! What if something should happen' protests the driver, wishing he'd never gone to work that morning. 'Who's going to tell' says the Pope with a smile. Reluctantly, the driver gets in the back as the Pope climbs in behind the wheel. The driver quickly regrets his decision when, after exiting the airport, the Pontiff floors it, accelerating the limo to 205 kms. (Remember, the Pope is German.) 'Please slow down, Your Holiness' pleads the worried driver, but the Pope keeps the pedal to the metal until they hear sirens. 'Oh, dear God, I'm going to lose my license -- and my job!' moans the driver. The Pope pulls over and rolls down the window as the cop approaches, but the cop takes one look at him, goes back to his motorcycle, and gets on the radio. 'I need to talk to the Chief,' he says to the dispatcher. The Chief gets on the radio and the cop tells him that he's stopped a limo going 205 kph. 'So bust him,' says the Chief. 'I don't think we want to do that, he's really important,' said the cop. The Chief exclaimed, 'All the more reason!' 'No, I mean really important,' said the cop with a bit of persistence.. The Chief then asked, 'Who do you have there, the mayor?' Cop: 'Bigger.' Chief: 'A senator?' Cop: 'Bigger.' Chief: 'The Prime Minister?' Cop: 'Bigger.' 'Well,' said the Chief, 'who is it?' Cop: 'I think it's God!' The Chief is even more puzzled and curious, 'What makes you think it's God?' Cop: 'His chauffeur is the Pope!'
