Desperately Seeking Translator


I've been listed on some French blog called Le R*ck est m*rt (Rock is Dead?!) bizarrely but given I can't understand French, am not entirely sure why.

I attempted to work out this mystery with the use of an online translating tool. I started with the phrase: être tombé sur un blog décadent and it threw me two possibilities:

1. to have fallen on a decadent blog; or

2. to have fallen on a declining blog.

um, I'm *really* hoping it is the first option. Does anyone speak French? If so, please go to the site and let me know whether I'm marvellous or simply merde...

Doesn't make much sense - things I came across about r*ock and d*ead then option 1, but I don't know why - maybe it came up on google?

Indygirl speaks gayanese, I mean french, I think. Also any of the Canadians could probably help you.

You made me curious so I did a check to see who links me. Great, some manic religious nut from California.

According to my French-major boss, it means: To have fallen in a decadent (corrupt, immoral) blog. YAY!

Try altavista babelfish? :-)

Jemima said...

Well I run French club.

I think it may be using an idiomatic expression with which I am unfamiliar.

But DEFINITELY a good thing ;-)

lol!! How about Ziggy fell down, became decadent and declined any help to return to the light?

Yes, I think that's it.

Femme - my life doesn't make much sense. Welcome!

Butchie - gayanese? I need to learn that language.

J - you always know what to say!

Jason - some manic religious nut from California - that is *so* exciting.

Beth - YAY! indeed! Decadent, Corrupt, Immoral - they are all good words!

Missy - Babelfish is also a good word. ;-)

JVS - good to see you again!

Guy Mercier - I'm deeply flattered.

Good Girl - you got it in one simple sentence. Where's my smooches?

*WE* all know our Ziggy is absolutely wonderful. Anyone who says otherwise will be terminated ;)

Dale said...

Only the French could find time to confound, confuse, smell funny and idolize both you and Jerry Lewis Ziggy! They can't be all bad.

ziggystardust73 said...

Dabich - I like that idea. Instant termination of anyone who says I'm not wonderful. It takes my narcissism to a whole new level! ;-)

Dale - I love the French. They are just so French.

Guy Mercier said...

I don't like Jerry lewis much, though he looked better to me after I went through Nick Tosches' Dino, am I still french enough for you guys ?

just for the record, the correct translation for my phrase might be
"I stumbled upon a decadent blog"

using the word decadent was a direct reference to the original ziggy stardust, the first r*ck record I ever bought
yeah, that was in '72

ziggystardust73 said...

Guy, I think I want to marry you.

Guy Mercier said...

not until you get a divorce from bowie, you can't

DaBich said...

I think Guy Mercier just saved his lil a** ;)

ziggystardust73 said...

Guy - I've not married David yet - and in fact, that bitch Iman has him at the moment. So the offer still stands ;-)

Dabich - Guy's not out of the water just yet... ;-)

Bluez628 said...

um yeah dibich! double terminated I say!

DaBich said...

Keep an eye on him, Ziggy!

Bluez and I will wait here in the shadows ;)

ziggystardust73 said...

Girls, do you think we've scared Guy away? I hope not - given David is married already I can't close off my options ;-)

DaBich said...

Nahh..he's just biding his time ;)
