Celtic Death Messangers [Feb. 6th, 2005|06:04 pm]

[music |Sir Banshee Theme Song]

Definition of Banshee: (noun) ban- shE, Irish bean sídhe & Scottish Gaelic bean sìth, literally, woman of fairyland

So, Colleen has a fantasy literature project on Banshees. As she was looking for a picture of one, she Googled "Banshee" and on the 20th page of results, she found this man. We thought to ourselves:

  • Why does this man qualify as a Banshee?
  • Why are there more than 20 pages of results for "Banshee?"
  • Furthermore, why are most of these pictures of Spanish men or planes?

* while viewing the "Sir Banshee" please pay careful attention to the music playing in the background.

P.S. Does anyone speak Spanish that would be willing to translate the site for me?

P.P.S. I really wanted to make this my icon but the Man Banshee had too many pixels dammit

P.P.P.S. If anyone knows the answers to our questions stated above, please share them.

P.P.P.P.S. We aren't sure who the woman next to the man is. Once again, if you know the answer, don't hesitate to respond.

it also says, as the title of the page "Este es Banshee, otro de los adictos a estos temas, el título de su Web lo dice todo "Yo tambien he sido abducido Enterprise". Or in english: "This is Banshee, another of the addicts to these themes, the title of his Website tells it all: "I also have been abducted by Enterprise." muy interesante.. could sir banshee be an addict? well if you click on "inicio" which i think means initiate?... you are sent to this place... with also some wierd mix of x-files music. and I think, in my opinion, this man Sir Banshee, has created an enterprise himself, in which he makes regular people into superheroes, or x-files characters. for instance... click here and you will not find scully, but a regualr person. the investigation continues...

I was going to translate it for you, but the person above just did. The website they found of "Scully" is really weird, because it gives some personal bio next to her. Since I don't feel like doing my actual Spanish homework I thought I'd translate it for you.

Original Text:
Que puedo decir de ella que no sepais, es alemana, vive en Tarragona, cursó estudios en el Instituto de Ciencias Parapsicologicas Hispano Americano, estudiosa del fenomeno OVNI, y le interesa la energia alternativa.

Le apasionan los temas paranormales y todo lo que este relacionado con ovnis tambien se la suele encontrar en el canal #ovnis.

Es la feminista del canal, una mujer de armas tomar, practica artes marciales (cuidado con ella) pede llegar a ser muy peligrosa :-)


Translation:

What I can say about her is that she doesn’t know[<--I think that’s what they mean, “sepais” is not an actual word], is German, lives in Tarragona, took courses/studied in the Hispanic American Institue of Psychological [again, “parapsicologicas” isn’t a word, but this is what I think they mean] Sciences, studied the OVNI phenomenon, and is interested in alternative energy [sources].

She is passionate about paranormal themes, and everything that is related with UFOS, also she is used to encountering UFO channels.

She is the feminist of the channel*, a women who takes arms [as in she has fire arms], practices martial arts (be careful with her), if asked to arrive she is very dangerous.

*I think they mean the TV channel; she is the feminist of the show
NOTE: Sorry if some things don’t make sense, but I’m just the translator, so blame it on the people who made the website!


Alright, time to do my actual Spanish homework. I hope the above translation keeps your attention for at least a little bit.
