エリック マーティン のアコースティックライヴに行ってきました。

MR.BIGのライヴとは違って、曲毎にMCが入るくらい絶好調に話していました。



名古屋公演のみ演奏したレア曲
I Love The Way You Love Meで歌詞が飛んだ時にとっさにでた言葉

Eric「I'm a human!にんげんだもの!!
相田みつをが頭によぎりましたw
心配そうにEricを見つめるPatの表情が忘れられませんw

ミスして追い込まれた時、私も「I'm a human!」を使って見ようw

DUOってます。

e0225376_2235226.jpg
6月から英語修行者の頼れる相棒、DUOを使ってます。
これが頭に入ったら、ものすごい革命が起きると信じてDUOってます!
「DUOを制するものは、英語を制ーする(×ゴリ)」

参考書が大好きなので、これまで数々の売れ筋の本に手を出してきては挫折したんですが…(←本を買えば出来るようになると思ってしまう一種の中毒症状)
「彼一筋♪もう浮気しないわ。」の本気の気持ちで
DUOりますwww

英語の得意な方はどんな風にボキャブラリーをつけてきたんでしょうか?
ナイスアイデアがあれば聞かせてください。

ひとまずSection36まできました(^o^)/
(全部でSection45)

1日1Section と進めると、出来ない日が出てくる事もあるので
1日3Section×3日として3日間の中で3Sectionを繰り返し進めるようにしました。
1週間の目安になるようにクリップを留めて「やってます感」を出してます。
音読までやる日もあれば、ただ見ただけの日もあったけど、とにかく電車に乗ったら意地でも見るようにしました。

ここまできて、「やってやったぞ感」は掴みましたが、ちゃんと覚えてるかは微妙ですwww

とっとと1週目を終わらせて5週くらいやったら覚えられるかな?

ドラマとか見ていると、DUOで出てきた表現がよく出てくるので、「おぉっBob!」と前のめりになるようにはなりましたw

早く初心者を脱出したいもんです。

Pat Torpey - Exclusive OnlineDrummer.com Interview
e0225376_22572738.jpg

I had the good fortune to spend some time in the company of Pat Torpey, the drummer of Mr. Big when they played a one-off show in London back last September. The following is a transcription of the interview.
exclusive(名) = 独占記事、スクープ
good fortune = 幸運
spend time = 時を過ごす
following = ファン
transcription = (書き)写すこと

Pat, welcome to onlinedrummer.com. Thanks for taking the time to talk with us.
What influenced you to pick up a pair of sticks and start drumming?

influence(名) = 影響

I was about 7 or 8 years old, and my family used to go to this local picnic event with a live Polka band. I was able to sit behind them and look down on the drummer, right on the top of him, and so from that vantage point I could see what he was doing, and I thought, "Wow that looks like fun!"
look down = 見下ろす、のぞき込む
behind = 後
on the top of~ = 見晴らしのいい

That was my first memory of when I can remember wanting to play the drums. I went to my Mother and said “I wanna play the drums,” and she gave me that look that parents give you, you know the “Oh yeah sure you do... you’re 7 years old”.
sure you do = やってみなさい

So from there I kind of held on to that dream. I’d fashioned some drum sticks from a couple of sticks out of the yard. I carved them and drew my name on them with a magic marker, you know the kind of thing an aspiring kid would do.
kind of = みたいな、まぁまぁ(断定をさける)
held on(hold on) = つかんだ
out of ~ = ~から外へ
carbe = 彫る
aspiring(形) = 向上心に燃える、 意欲的な

Did your parents give you a certain time limit when you could practice on your drum kit? My parents would say I had an hour a day.
certain(形) = いくらか

My mother had gotten me a snare, some sticks and a practice pad. I had to prove to her that it wasn’t a fleeting thing. So she eventually told me when I graduated from grade school as a graduation gift that she would buy me a drum kit.
prove = 証明する
fleeting(形) = つかの間の、いつしか消え去る
eventually(副)= 最終的には
graduate = 卒業する
grade school = 小学校

My mother worked, and I was the eldest. I have younger sisters, and during the day I was meant to be taking care of them, but most of the day I was in my room playing my drums, and they were outside doing whatever. Luckily they never had any bad accidents whilst I was responsible.
eldest = 一番上の
dring the day = 日中に
most of the day = 1日のほとんどを
whilst = while
responsible(形) = 責任がある

I never really had any restrictions on my practice. I could sit there and listen to records and figure it out. I’m a self-taught player.
restriction(名) =制限
figure it out = 考える
self taught = 独学の

Stage managers utterly  incompetent and downright stupid,
We played on in spite of them! Woo Hoo!
They did their best to screw-up our show. And FAIlED!

Billy 先生がお怒りのご様子です( ̄□ ̄;)!!
Swaziland で何があったんでしょうか?スタッフのミス?時間、間違えたとか?

否定的、悪い意味と用いられる副詞がたくさん出てきたのでメモっておきますw
utterly(副)=全く、完全に
downright (副)=全くの、徹底的な
incompetent(形)=無能、役に立たない
stupid(形)=おばかちゃん
(=idiotic/ dumb/ dull/ slow/ silly/ foolish)
←→ intelligent/ bright
in spite of~(前)=~にもかかわらず
screw-up =失望させる、へまをする人、大失敗
failed=失敗した

stupid (Duo参考)

Around The World

「Around The World」

I can make a couple a calls
Let's see whatever way it falls
True it's seems a little bit late
Got a dream and it just can't wait

A million places
We're wanting to be
Where everybody's standing
And they're startin' to scream

'Round the world we go
Get laugh from the people that you know
'Round the world we go
Stick around 'til the evening starts 'til glow
'Round the world we go
Now it's time to let your head explode

I can see it comin' down
I know that you can feel the sound
You and I were made to move
Just put the diamond into the groove

A million faces we're hoping to see
Where everybody's standin' staring back at me

'Round the world we go
Get laugh from the people that you know
'Round the world we go
Stick around 'til the evening starts 'til glow
'Round the world we go
Now it's time to let your head explode

Everybody needs a little gettin' away
Shout it all together we've got somethin' to say
Gather up anyone that you can find
Forget the masqueraders leave 'em all behind

'Round the world we go
Get laugh from the people that you know
'Round the world we go
Stick around 'til the evening starts 'til glow
'Round the world we go
Get laugh from the people that you know
'Round the world we go
Now it's time to let your head explode
