Well hello there. ;D

Hi, name's Michael [well, Michał really, but Michael is the english version of my name xD]. I'm 16 yo and I'm from Poland.
The list of things I like is too long so I'll make this quick: I love watching TV series, but I don't watch TV [currently in love with "Warehouse 13", "ER", "Dollhouse", "Six Feet Under" and "Drop Dead Diva"]; playing cRPG games and The Sims 3 [no surprise here ;D], cars, Apple computers and phones [well, I would love 'em but in Poland they are so expensive I'll never buy anything from Apple], green Skittles and of course men. ]big_smile
Squarehippies.com was in my Favourites for quite a while but I've decided I'll with with an invasion. Now, since I'm here - run for your lives. I mean it. XD
Looking forward to watching beautiful men with y'all. Mikki out [well, it's 10:30 AM here, I need to go to school XD].

Welcome! I am Virtue, the moderator around these parts. We are an awesome community of people, male and female alike. You will find, I am quite sure, more than enough drooling material and that is why we have a few drooling pools at everyone's disposal big_smile

For obvious reasons, you'll want to keep posting in english as much as possible. It might be the obvious but I simply have to make sure that I don't miss anything cool

:-) Sadly I exhausted almost all my Polish with that one word.  I'm definitely not a compatriot (rodak, right?).

I only know the very basics about Polish grammar and pronunciation (though boy I LOVE how it sounds;  I just watched Pan Tadeusz on DVD and some of those men's voices just made me melt);  the only slavic language I studied seriously was Russian.  You're probably too young to have learned Russian in school (I understand all Poles *had* to learn it back in the days before the fall of the Soviet Union and the Warsaw pact), but in case you did, Добро пожаловать, too :-).

Right. ^^

Right again, I'm too young. My parents had to learn russian since Poland was practically ruled by communists that had very strong ties with Soviet Union. Now the most important language in polish schools apart from polish [naturally xD] is english. I'm learning it since the kindergarden so it's like 11 years now. But no, I know nothing about russian - can't even read the cyrillic.

Re: Well hello there. ;D

Speaking of which, Michał, your English is *excellent*.  Boy the European educational system(s) sure are better at teaching English than American schools are at teaching just about any other language.

The only fix I'd make to your last sentence is:  "I've been learning it since kindergarten" -- in English you can't use the present tense for something that's has been ongoing since some time in the past (though virtually every other language I know does).  Plus, we don't use "the" in front of Kindergarten:  that's just kind of an arbitrary rule.  (And although most Americans would probably mispell it as Kindergarden, the correct spelling really is the German one.)

I'm still curious what you did write in response to me in Polish -- google translation and babelfish both screwed it up :-).

(Oh and the Russian would be written in Polish roughly as dabro pożalovać (or maybe more correctly as pożalovati, if you make the "i" silent and keep the palatization of the "t").)

Sorry everybody for the incredibly boring off-topic-ness;  I'm a lgnauge nerd, what can I say?  Maybe a gratuitous picture of Michael Shanks as Daniel Jackson, archaeologist and language nerd extraordinaire of Stargate SG1, will make up for this a little bit:

Oh, thank you very much. I owe it to 11 years + 4 additional years of private lessons. But still - I don't have anyone to talk to in English [well, almost]. I hate to say it, but I prefer it over Polish because I think it's more expressive. ;D

Well, I wrote "Oh great, I even found compatriot on this site. Thanks.". But as it turns out you're not from Poland so sorry for my mistake.

Re: Well hello there. ;D

Odd -- it shows up in my post for me.  Interestingly, when you quoted my post, the img tags got turned into url tags (which is probably a deliberate feature of the forum to prevent images from being copied over and over).  As for Michael Shanks, he's cute in a cuddly sort of way, but it's a shame he's smooth.  He sure did beef up a lot over the course of the series, though.  Which I found completely unbelievable -- I mean what sort of archaeological/linguistic/galaxy-trotting nerd has that much time to work out in real life? :-)  (Strangely enough, I didn't find wormholes or hyperspace or little snake creatures that attach to your spine and make your eyes glow unbelievable at all ...)

Re: Well hello there. ;D

I stopped watching SG-1... I think when season 8 started. But I'm doin' my "Tour de SyFy" so when I'm done with first season of Sanctuary I'll catch up with last two seasons and whole Stargate Atlantis + tomorrow is a Stargate Universe premiere! *.* Can't wait to see them in action - especially Ming-Na. I missed her since she left ER.
And yes, Michael did beef up but I mean c'mon - maybe Daniel was ashamed when he was standing next to Teal'c and said to himself "Boy, I need to get some muscle". ;> Besides, it was necessary for him to have some kind of strength since they were running around galaxy like crazy.

Re: Well hello there. ;D

Oh you GOTTA watch seasons 9 and 10 of SG1 -- Ben Browder is sizzlin.

I'm looking forward to SG Universe tomorrow too.

I friggin' can't believe this day and age where you get to watch the same shows in Poland that we get to watch, and on the same day.  Not that Americans get to watch European or British shows, except for a few that trickle in, usually a year or two late.

The magic of Internet. ;D Besides I wouldn't be able to watch SG-1/Atlantis/Universe and other SyFy shows mainly because I don't have cable - only 7 main polish channels. And I really don't like it when one guy is reading all of actors' lines - there is no such thing like dubbing TV shows in Poland [though I know that they're dubbing everything that's possible in Germany]. Instead we use Gavrilov translation technique or voice-over translation if U will. It's kinda annoying, but it's a standard. Dubbing is generally reserved for children material [Disney Channel shows, animated feature movies etc.].

Re: Well hello there. ;D

Ugh dubbing is the worst.  It's funny how different countries have different standards with that.  Dubbing used to be much more common in the US but is now virtually never used.  It kind of became a bit of a joke -- especially where it was associated with Japanese or Chinese movies.  In the US, the standard for many many years now has been subtitles with foreign films.  Subtitles do mean you have to read something, but it's WAAAYYYYY better than dubbing, which just ruins the movie in my opinion.

I've heard before that Germany is a dubbing kind of a country.  I used to have a coworker from Germany who had seen all the Arnold Schwarzeneger movies in Germany, where the English parts would be dubbed in by German actors, and Arnold would dub in his own voice in German.  Then the first time he saw one of those films in its original English form over here in America he told me he fell out of his seat laughing so hard because he couldn't believe that anybody in the US took Schwarzeneger seriously with that voice and accent.  (And that was BEFORE the guy got elected to be Governor of California.)

I've also heard that Sweden neither dubs NOR subtitles:  everybody over there just knows English, apparently :-).

Myself I love having subtitles with languages that I sort-of understand, like Russian.  That way it helps me catch the percentage of the dialog (especially the very colloquial dialog, which they tend not to teach in school) that I don't understand;  but it's also fun to catch the places where the subtitles are just TOTALLY WRONG.  Of course that makes me worry about movies like Crouching Tiger where I don't know the language at all -- are THOSE subtitles full of total inaccuracies, too? :-)

Oh, and thanks Squarebart, very nice :-) Though MY favourite SG1 Ben Browder scene was him handcuffed to the bed:

http://www.dreamcaps.org/forums/uploads/post-35311-1241985231.jpg

Just sayin' :-)

(Oh, and the scene where he's just in a towel in the locker room shaving -- can't find a cap of that handy but I have the whole series on DVD so I guess I'll have to do it myself)

Re: Well hello there. ;D

Oh I saw American dubs of Sailor Moon, One Piece and others... Let me just say I'll stick with japanese versions with english subs for the foreseeable future. XD

but it's WAAAYYYYY better than dubbing, which just ruins the movie in my opinion.

Well, maybe but not exactly. In my country we have a long tradition with dubbing Disney classics and other animation movies so I think it's fair to say that as far as dubbing goes we're very good at it. I'm always watching Disney/Pixar movies with polish dubbing 'cause I know that often jokes are even better than in the original version and voices are so much more suited.

Well there's a big difference between dubbing animated movies and live action.  I have no objection to the former :-).

Oh yes, he's like 46 and still freakishly handsome. *.* I really wouldn't mind the age difference. xD
I'm 18 minutes into series premiere of Stargate Universe and as far as I went with it I don't like it at all. Those characters are only shadows compared to the older ones [especially Eli is getting on my nerves - they should hire Michael Shanks for another round of same ol' stuff XD].

PS. Richard Dean Anderson in SGU: Jeez... I mean - he looks now like some 75 yo grandpa. This stay-at-home dad thing is not working for him at all.

Re: Well hello there. ;D

Geez.  You're right.  He's only 2 years younger than me.  GOD I hate genetics! :-)  (Not that I looked a billionth as good as him when I was 20!)

Richard Dean Anderson actually looks pretty good for his age.  He's pushing 60.  He's never been my cup of tea, even when he was younger (ESPECIALLY when he was younger -- with that mullet -- ugh).  But he's still holding up pretty well :-).

As for SGU, yeah, so far the characters are nothing to get excited about.  Yeah, the Eli guy is kind of annoying.  He was kind of annoying as Mick's nerd hacker vampire-who-lives-in-a-basement friend on Moonlight, too.  But you always need to give a new show a LITTLE time to work out the characters.

Re: Well hello there. ;D

Well, don't worry - it's not like I look like young Brad Pitt right now. So join the club. XD
I mean c'mon, RDA was out of the radar for almost three years and he went from this [I DO realize that this picture was taken earlier than 2006, but still (he could do anything to me then XD)]:
http://i256.photobucket.com/albums/hh178/Mikao6/392px-Jackoneill.jpg
to this [Comic Con 2008]:
http://i256.photobucket.com/albums/hh178/Mikao6/Richard_Dean_Anderson_Comic_Con_200.jpg
in just 3 years. I know that being almost 60 he won't have a body of a teenager but he could lose a couple of pounds. And I believe he's working on that since in his first scene in SGU he looked really not good but in second when Jack is talking to Sam he looks much better. And since he in confirmed to guest star in multiple episodes of SGU [my guess - he needs money xD] I think he'll come around.

As far as characters go, you're right. But at the moment I don't like any of them, even Ming-Nas' character.

PS. I think Amanda Tapping was in the middle of shooting second season of Sanctuary when she was filming her scenes for SGU so all I saw was Helen Magnus with blonde hair. XD Even her way of talking screamed "Helen Magnus without fake english accent".

Wait a minute... As far as I know you're a pretty long way from "almost 50". ;P Besides - I'm single too and it's probably not going to change in a while but I'm not particularly discontent about it. Or the fact that I need to lose approx. 22 pounds.
One thing always gets me annoyed though - my girlfriends changing objects for channeling their undying love with a 1 guy a week ratio. XD It's silly and pretty much gets on my nerves.
