aka, why are all of you here??  i’m a dork oh no.

             first off,  let  me  begin  by  saying that when i made this blog
             almost a year ago,  i  had  no  clue  i  would  even  get  ten lil’
             cuties following me,  let alone over  two thousand of you.  it’s
             shocking, and odd, and exhilarating, and my gosh, i’m about
             to tear up just thinking about it.  seriously,  how did it get this
             far,  in  what  seems  like  such  a  short  time  of  being here.

             i've put anna through hiatus',  breaks,  emergency's,  every
             kind of situation.  but i always come back to her.  she’s  my
             person.  she’s the other half of me,  as weird as it is to say
             that out loud.  there’s a part of me that looks up to anna, &
             another part of me that is anna. i analyze, i breathe, sleep,
             eat, and dream anna. hell, i’m even getting my haircut in a
             month or two to  match  her  style  completely!   it’s  crazy!

             but then again, i love crazy.  and sandwiches.  seriously,  i
             had a great triple-sandwich today,  it was  so  good,  and —
             sorry, sorry,  got off task,  eheh.  but  really,  i’ve  just  gone
             through so much on this blog.  i’ve aged.  i’ve had my heart
             broken. i’ve made memories. i’ve made enemies. i’ve made
             friends. i’ve fallen apart.  i’ve gotten back together.  i’ve lost
             people.   i’ve  lost  touch  with  some.   i’ve  re-encountered
             others.  it’s always been such a  rollercoaster  being here.

             yet,  through it all,  you guys have  faithfully  stuck  by  me.
             and all i have to say is thank you,  so much for being here.

can i say something crazy?

Why is a gay porn blog following me?

I have never ever liked/reblogged anything afiliated to gay porn. Nothing wrong with being gay and nothing wrong with porn, but what do they expect to find while following me? What could even bring them to my blog? I have nothing even resembling gay porn on my blog-

Wait…do you think the wrestling on my blog gives the wrong impression? Cause lets face it, wrestling isn’t the most “manly” or “heterosexual” sport on the planet…

Yeah…the wrestling definitely gives the wrong impression…

THEORY OF LITERARY TRANSLATING MEANDERING BELOW

so, I picked up David Ferry’s Horace mainly because it was the one the BPL had ready for me.  and it’s not good at all, for several reasons.  

let’s start with what I want a translation to be*.  There’s (a). fidelity, with can be separated in to (1). fidelity to the text and (2). fidelity to the sense; and b. quality, which of course ties into (a).  (b). is probably easiest to talk about: a translation of a good poem should itself be a good poem.  Which means, of course, that a translation of a bad poem should be a bad poem - you shouldn’t try to clean up a poet’s infelicities.
