a je to!
just to give everybody a little insight into the culture to which i've expatriated, here is the most classic children's cartoon in czechoslovak history, a je to ("and that's it," basically in english). it's about two guys who are handymen of sorts and always try to build elaborate solutions to simple problems, and thus cause bigger problems. i think it's quite possibly the most valuable children's cartoon i've ever seen.
a je to originally has no dialogue, so anyone can enjoy it, but i found this episode on youtube where a couple guys had recorded a dialogue over it in eastern slovak dialect. since i live in eastern slovakia and have to hear this dialect all the time, mostly from my in-laws, i found this especially hilarious.
luminon, if you're watching, can you understand anything?
if anybody likes this, there are tons of episodes on youtube. just search for "a je to."
"I have never felt comfortable around people who talk about their feelings for Jesus, or any other deity for that matter, because they are usually none too bright. . . . Or maybe 'stupid' is a better way of saying it; but I have never seen much point in getting heavy with either stupid people or Jesus freaks, just as long as they don't bother me. In a world as weird and cruel as this one we have made for ourselves, I figure anybody who can find peace and personal happiness without ripping off somebody else deserves to be left alone. They will not inherit the earth, but then neither will I. . . . And I have learned to live, as it were, with the idea that I will never find peace and happiness, either. But as long as I know there's a pretty good chance I can get my hands on either one of them every once in a while, I do the best I can between high spots."
