Happy New Year! I hope you’re having an excellent 2010 so far. I had a great holiday – as you probably know if you’ve watched the last few videos.
I’m so lucky my aunty and uncle invited us to spend New Year’s with them … it was really awesome.
And I’m excited about The Daily English Show in 2010. Last year we were off air quite a bit with stuff like moving and technical issues. But we’re pretty much settled in now and I’m happy we’re back into it. And I’ve got lots of ideas for stuff I want to do here in Auckland. Places I want to take the camera and people I want to interview … so I think it’s going to be a good year.
Speaking of exciting, I have uploaded my Danjo video, finally. These are the glasses I’m wearing in the video.
If you don’t know what Danjo is, there’s a pretty good explanation here.
It’s a dance. And it’s an internet meme … from 2008 actually. But last year when we went on a trip around Hokkaido, knf though it would be fun to film me doing the dance in different locations around Hokkaido. And so we did it and it was fun … and it was also hard work … because I’m not a very good dancer and knf’s a very strict director, so he made me to the dance over and over again. So that was just a bit of fun. It won’t really help your English. But, if you’re interested, follow the link and go and check it out.
Today is Friday, so we’re studying a song.
And the song we’re studying today is another internet meme. But this one is not from 2008 – it’s new, hot off the press!
And General Larry Platt is clearly not impressed with the low pants look:
Pants on the ground, pants on the ground Lookin' like a fool with your pants on the ground With the gold in your mouth Hat turned sideways Pants hit the ground Call yourself a cool cat, lookin' like a fool. ズリ下げズボン、ズリ下げズボン アホっぽく見えるぜズリ下げズボン 金歯を入れて 斜めかぶり帽子 ズボンズリ下げ カッコいいと思ってるんだろうけどアホっぽい
I think Larry Platt is very cute and I love the song. It’s very catchy. So go and check it out if you haven’t already - and some of the remixes are very good too.
Kia ora in Stick News today, two men in New Zealand appeared in court after they stole a remote control thinking it was an iPod.
On the 2nd of January a 23-year-old and a 21-year-old broke into a school in Rotorua, New Zealand.
The Daily Post reported the pair forced a door open in the maths building and walked inside, setting off the alarm system. Before they ran away, they saw an overhead projector remote control sitting on a desk. Apparently, they thought it was an iPod, so they stole it. The men were remanded on bail. And will be sentenced on the 10th of March.
On And that was Stick News for Friday the 15th of January. Kia ora.
