Yesterday I went shopping at my local supermarket, which is great place to go shopping. And I bought this sweatshirt, which I really like, partly because I like the colour and the design but I also love what is written on it. This is a classic modern Japanese style of T-shirt or sweatshirt – with the strange English writing. So I thought I’d talk about it today because today is mistake day. Often the writing on this kind of clothing doesn’t make any sense or it kind of makes sense but it’s full of mistakes.
But they’re usually not the kind of mistakes that you’d want to correct because it’s kind of like strange poetry. And actually the writing on this is almost perfect – apart from the lack of punctuation. So I’m going to read it to you. I love it.
The work team name is brain head project On the screen of my imagination I always project nasty fantasies Not because my mind is nasty But life without fantasies Is like an empty screen
About a month ago someone left a comment saying:Hi Sarah, did you think of uploading TDES in just mp3 format?
And they explained that they download all the videos and then convert them to mp3 so that they can listen to them again over and over for listening practice – and the reason why they don’t want to do that with video is because video drains the battery really fast.
And my answer was no, I hadn’ t thought of that. But sure, why not … if enough people want the mp3 files, then it makes sense for us to do the converting. So, recently, we started uploading mp3 files. First on a site called Podomatic - www.podomatic.com – but then it turned out that that had a limit. So I found another site called Gcast which seems to be going pretty well, so far. So if anyone wants to listen to The Daily English Show on your mp3 player, then you might want to check out this site.
Kia Ora in Stick News today a duck in New Zealand caused a car accident by crossing the road.
Yesterday a duck and her ducklings crossed the road in a city called Palmerston North. According to news reports, the ducks crossed Centennial Drive at 9:15 yesterday causing a car to swerve into an oncoming van. The impact rolled the van and sent it spinning sideways down the road. Apparently no ducks or drivers were hurt in the accident.
And that was Stick News for Wednesday the 26th of November. Kia Ora.
