Hilarious: Sonseed – Jesus is my friend

After two weeks of drifting Babe action I thought I should change back to the musical entries. ;)

Not a entry because I found this one genuinly through Youtube:

Once I tried to run, once I tried to hide, but Jesus found me and touched me deep down inside.

I personally love 80s ska bands like Madness, Specials (or Special AKA or the Special Beat), Mark Foggo and Mr. Review but I don’t really like this! ;)

I don’t really have anything to say about this except that the guitarist really goes wild at 1:36! ;)

BTW: This is not meant to insult Christian followers. :P

Hilarious: Drift series special: Beauty Battle part 4 (final)

Well, I’ve finally finished this series… :)

Well, just when it started to get “okay” it became a bit more rediculous again: they add a 4AGZE to the hachi!

Well, you might think that adding a 4AGZE isn’t a big problem and should not be rediculous, well you are right! Adding a 4AGZE is one of the best options for the AE86! And it should be considered an “easy” swap. ;)

But the weird thing is that the engine sound isn’t changing afterwards! At least the Supercharger should make a whining sound and the engine should not rev that high anymore!

And no, they did not turbo the 4AGZE to 4AGZTE, see in the picture below. Apart from that they still have the 4AGE engine cover on it:
4AGZE setup in the Corolla Levin AE86 but still a 4A-GE cover on it?

So, my conclusion:
– Wrong translations
– Wrong production date of the car
– Just got a drivers license and already master of heel-to-toe
– Handbrake+revvnig at the same time
– Stabilizer for the wrong purpose
– 4AGZE without a change in engine note

Too many factors giving me this movie a bad aftertaste… I wouldn’t watch any other of the Drift! movies now…

Hilarious: Drift series special: Beauty Battle part 3

A month ago I already blogged about the Drift: Beauty Battle and last week I wrote part 2: the Drift: Beauty Battle part 2.

Today I watched parts 2 and 3 and boy it is baaaaaad! :D

Today’s highlights were:
Master of heel-to-toe technique while being clueless about driving/drifting
She just got her license the other day… Do I need to explain this more??

Drifting with the handbrake and pulling it through the entire corner and revving hard
Makes more sense to me to use the handbrake to loose traction and let it go and step on the accelerator while going sideways. The way she uses the handbrake is more how to perform a FWD drift, so doing that with a RWD should result in actually slowing down

Stabilizer bar against shaking in a corner
I think this is more due to something being lost in translation, but this is how they explain the stabilizer bar: it helps against shaking of the car when accelerating and with the same concept stabilizing the roof of the car.

Uhm… Well, it does help against tilting (shaking?) of the car when cornering, especially when accelerating in the corners. And of course it keeps your car horizontal (roof?) compared to the suspension. But how they explain it it is utter crap and only confuses the viewer… ;)

Hilarious: Drift series special: Beauty Battle part 2

A month ago I already blogged about the Drift: Beauty Battle and I wrote I would try to watch it that night…

I still haven’t been able to watch it entirely. It is so hilarious! :D
Especially the translations are terrific! Toyota is called Nong Tian and the car is called Carrola Laiby!
Drift: Beauty Battle Corolla Levin becomes Carrola Laiby
I can understand the Carrola Laiby error because that is what it is pronounced as in Japanese. However you can clearly see Levin on the side of the car!

But Nong Tian?? It is clearly pronounced as Toyota!?! And produced in 1983 and 1984? It is clearly a kouki Levin, and they were produced from 1985 till 1987! I hope you can understand now why I’m having difficulty when watching this series…

Anyway, I’m now watching two Youtube movies per day during my lunchbreak, so hopefully I’ve finished this next wednesday. ;)

Hilarious: Den Harrow

Again I had a tough one after last weeks Mr. T raps and Jozin z Bazin, but again I managed to find another gem! :)

This week I found Den Harrow when searching material for the Italo Disco vs Early demoscene posting. I remember Den Harrow from my youth and back then I thought some of his songs were great!
One of my favorites was Future Brain (great clip!)

Well, boy was I wrong. I just heard “A Taste Of Love” on and immediately thought it was great stuff for the hilarious section.

When looking at this and reading the Wikipedia page about Den Harrow I found this small quote:

Revealing the Truth
After years of continued fame and popularity, the fans of Den Harrow were faced with an unbelievable news, it was revealed both by the frontman of Den Harrow Stefano Zandri and the producers that they had been hiding the truth from their millions of fans. It was disclosed that Stefano Zandri did not actually sing his own songs; he was essentially a character who lip-synched to vocals produced by a number of other Italo singers.

No shit? He didn’t sing that himself? Amazing nobody ever noticed! It’s soooo obvious if you look at that live perfomance! And the alternating voices between the songs and years?

Something that would be a nice thing is that if Den Harrow jumped from the Italo disco bandwagon on to the Eurobeat bandwagon during the early 90s instead of persisting that he learned to sing and still performes 100% the same song over and over again

The sad thing is that he nowadays claims he leaned to sing and still sings Future Brain with the same voice as 23 years ago!

Hilarious: Jozin z bazin

This weeks hilarious posting is not one from

I got this one from my Polish colleagues some time ago and I can’t stop laughing about it when I see it. They told me they are a bunch of comedians who performed this song at national television in 1978.

Especially the guy with the weird voice belching into the cup. It reminds me of an old colleague who invented the “haubing”, which is a technique to sing when belching!

And the dancing guy: it looks like he’s got parkinson. The guy next to him doesn’t even move at all!

Here are the translated lyrics:

1. I drive Skoda 100 to camp here on Orawa
So I hurry, take a risk – go through Morawa
The monster lives there, comes out of the bog
Eats mostly Prague citizen, its name is Jozin (Joseph)

Chorus: Jozin from the bog creeps through swamp
Jozin from the bog closes to the village
Jozin from the bog edges its teeth
Jozin from the bog bites, strangles
To defeat Jozin from the bog, who could imagine, only works a plane with manure (white powder)

2. I was driving through the village on road to Vizowice
The village mayor greeted me, said to me during drinking Sliwowica (DIY plum vodka)
‘The one who will bring Jozin dead or alive
gets my daughter and a half of National Agrarian Farm

Chorus: Jozin…

3. I said: ‘give me a plane and powder, mayor,
I’ll bring you Jozin, I see no trouble about that’,
Mayor helped me, in the morning I went up in the sky
The powder from the plane prettily fell on Jozin
Jozin from swamp is totaly white now
Jozin from swamp is running away from the mud
Jozin from swamp ended up on the rock
Jozin from swamp will meet his end here”

I got Jozin from swamp, now I hold him in my hand
A bit of money is always nice so I will sell him to a ZOO
