NJ to Machala

middle-age American living in New Jersey near the Lincoln Tunnel «« Amigo Alex: I’ve lived in my Spanish-speaking barrio too long to have Spanish as limiting as mine, and the Queer Eye audio is helping me. It’s on Netflix, and in addition to having Spanish and English sound and subtitles it has a high-functioning app that allows me to flip language settings easily. I can hear someone speak Spanish and hear it again in English — it’s great, but the original language is English, and the Spanish subtitles and Spanish audio were independently produced, so there’s translation differences. You transcribed this text from a short audio I gave you: mujeres del mundo que no están conscientes de la moda si ven pantalones Capri corran. If you were to cue the Queer Eye program to this moment you would see the Spanish subtitles don’t match what you gave me. What you gave me is more helpful, because it matches the Spanish audio. This Queer Eye program has passed my test. Repetitive listening is now tolerated in my home. Hana and I passed the annoyed-by repetition to mocking it often saying, “Dios mio”. Additionally funny things have happened like, “camouflage es no tu amigo”, and it’s turned my eyes to local fashion amazed at how common camouflage is. Recently I saw a woman with a Cardi-B proportioned body wearing snug leggins ankles to shoulders. It was one piece showing every curve of her body. Ironically camouflage was originally intended to blend in with one’s surroundings, and clearly this woman was not blending in with her urban NYC surroundings. The purpose of this text is to give you the sense this Queer Eye program is helping me and promises to continue to help. Having the Spanish audio with matching Spanish text will boost my effort, ciao from NJ to Machala, Tomas »» about me 302-990-2346 contact us
