Lyricist:小沢不二夫
Sung:  Xena  LCH# 121

リンゴの花びらが 風にちったよな
月夜に 月夜に そっと えええ……
つがる娘は ないたとさ  
つらい別れを ないたとさ
リンゴの花びらが
風に散ったよな あああ……

「お岩木山のてっぺんを 綿みてえな白い雲が
ポッカリポッカリながれてゆき
桃の花が咲き 桜が咲き
そいから早咲きのリンゴの花ッコが咲く頃は
おら達の一番たのしい季節だなやー
だどもじっぱり無情の雨っこさ降って
白い花びらを散らすころ
おらあのころ東京さで
死んだお母ちゃんのことを思い出して……
おら……おら……」(Skipped)

つがる娘は ないたとさ
つらい別れを ないたとさ
りんごの花びらが
風に散ったよな あああ……

お籠にゆられて あのまちへ  ふちんむちん さようなら.

幼馴染の あの人を  お嫁に往ったら なんと呼ぶ

捨てる未練が曠野の果てに
赤く染まって消えてゆく
あの娘の幸福 邪魔せずに
夢で泣け泣け 夢で泣け

あの娘ばかりが 女じゃないと
想いなからもつのる戀
口には出せないさびしさを
夢で泣け泣け 夢で泣け

にぎる拳に 淚が落ちて
茜 空さえ胸をやく
あの娘を恨んで 何になろ
夢で泣け泣け夢で泣け

--------------
Lyrics in Mandarin

記得昨夜,
醺醺酒醉,
只記得淚雙垂 一路上thinking of the weird 2 point conversion...
不知喝了多少杯,淚雙垂到底是為了誰?
又為誰夜半不歸,
被NFL-NFC所毀.

記得昨夜,
驀然驚覺.
不知道為了誰 ,
The fumble of the onside kick...
窗裡窗外漆漆黑, 無情風對我冷冷的吹.
The horrific last 4 minutes, on the Jan 18th.

記得昨夜,
醺醺酒醉,
只記得淚雙垂 ,
一路上討厭那 goal-faking,
不知 why 16-0 turned into 28-22 at the very end?
淚雙垂到底是為了誰 又為誰夜半不歸.
 Seahawks were not Packed.

行到溪邊水流聲 引阮頭殼痛
日思NFL - NFC 怨嘆阮運命
孤單無伴賞月影 也是為著贏
怎樣last 4 minutes 0-16 變 28-22

黃昏冷淡日頭落 思念阮Packers
看見Seahawks 飛過河 目屎輪輪靠
講阮有贏也那無 無人通喂靠
人人講阮想不開 想著心照嘈

月色光光照山頂 天星粒粒明
冷風伴阮心未清 目屎滴胸前
燒香拜拜求神明 球場真無情
放阮孤枕夜夜冷 祈待明年贏

明知the weird miracle 因何happened during the last 4 minutes...
……不想你 不想你 不想你
怎樣我又每晚夢 彼日 the fumble of the  onside kick...

女子立誓甘願看破來避走 舊情綿綿猶原對情意厚
明知the aweful 2 point conversion 因何偏偏為你犧性
……不想你 不想你 不想你
怎樣若看黃昏到 就來想你目屎流

Jan 14 (W), 2015. A Serendipitous Diary.

January 11 at 6:19pm · Edited ·

What a day!! After Packers' O.K. Game at the Lamabeau field, then I found my old car moody, not letting me start. Fine! My colleague + officemate professor Kathy (and Tim) gave me a ride to school (they dropped me off for another activity), and then I found my office key still immersing the post-game joy at the apartment, not with me.
So I was wondering/wandering around the main campus. Lucky me, finally I found A Room of My Own working on student day 1 tech- survey name tags/sheets and double-checking everything...now - to avoid being an imperfect perfectionist.

Thanks, Marcie, Rod and DaisyMae: repost. Here is a hypothetical fun topic and question for today - "Are you ready to be fired by CVTC or by the Taxpayers? - Don't worry - have you ever been qualified as an edu- Martyr?? :D!" - Issues of "Good Tools Make Good workers who make good work". (工欲善其事, 必先利其器- 不能既要馬兒好, 又要馬兒不吃草).

The following happy monologues are only focusing on Hardware Issues. For the software part - tightly stay tuned.
---------------
I need to confess that teaching at a 2-year college is the greatest privilege that I have ever had in my last 20 years' teaching career at 2 high schools, 2 universities, and two 2-year colleges (both in Taiwan and the US.)  The 2-year college makes me rethink how entitled, advantaged, and lucky I was, and will be :)!
--------------
Lucky I - have 6 classes for spring 2015 (Some faculty got 7, depending on the delivery format configuration). From next semester, seemingly every faculty will teach 7 classes at least 3 preps for 21 credits. Yep, teaching is our Supreme, God-like Tasks - enjoy it ! Welcome more educators to answer this Great Calling - join us !!

One condition should also be added to your repertoire if you decide to join us - If President's exciting idea of the first 2 year free edu policy became reality, you might need to teach 8, 9, or 10 classes with the similar compensation, since teaching is not really a ''blue collar" job - or shamelessly speaking, a de-unionized job?? But be grateful, before all courses are taken by the Digital Instructors and the Cyberic Professors, or Mooced for money-saving (and the rest of invisible edu-tech-business agenda) instead of doing better education!!! And I would like to quote my colleague Professor LeCount's edu-joke (don't worry, I won't intend to make him a martyr) that we used to have 10 faculty members sharing one COZY office (I was there). He named this elbow-to-elbow closeness as - us "ZooMates" ! My current office is shared by 9 faculty and adjuncts. My neighbor office is shared by 20!! (Note, I am not trying to make the above episode too exciting, but I have to say when I was a TA teaching art, I Occupied an office which was no bigger nor smaller than my current whole office's size - surely, in a 4-year university).

But don't get me wrong - Sharing is good. Who doesn't like it??

In addition, we all cave in the basement - underground and safe, like _____ (fill-in-the-blank) and see who can get the nice answers :)! Furthermore, a best friend custodian told me - "don't worry, here was Radon tested" - nice of him.

As for students' sake, not to mention we don't have any basketball/football fields, field and track, and the rest of sport facility and utility, nor Auditoriums, Dormitories, recreational centers, student centers, and the rest that you can imagine from a prison or concentration camp (these two terms need some kind of sociological imagination) ! However, we do have a humongous cafeteria from a well-fraternized Big Food industry that an organization of Michigan state filed a lawsuit against its employee wage abuse, and a huge cosmologist saloon for many functions via tearing down a used-to-be child care center for students and staff (if I were not wrong about this info).

The most magnificent area is our library which is a multi-functional spot for assisting learning, career-life counseling, training,  diversity...and the rest of miscellaneous jobs and tasks...

The 2-year colleges manifest the most economically successful story, so beautifully parsimonious, and so invisible ! It is a great place to meditate, to be ascetic, and - to be a real Macro and Micro Economist !

It is a tremendous way to save Taxpayers' money, and benefit our capitalistic businesses and industries. But I am quite happy to take aspirins and any other pain-killers (don't worry, no steroids to enhance my mood and muscles) with proper doses on daily basis to make me flamboyant, energetic, and look nice on campus!

Not all the knowledge workers are created equally. And the other scenario may need to put into the big picture as well - all the proprietary/for-profit edu-businesses and edu-capitalists has been stirred up edu-monetary-emotionally toward President and 2-year colleges.

In short, hopefully, the attraction to the politicians, taxpayers, and the rest of the stakeholders is not just because of our simplicity, innocence, and frugality.... Stay tuned.

Sun Lasting Switching gears from the poly-ticks to an interesting Folklore - "The Eight" Show - an important motif of Painter Mr. Te-Cheng Chuang.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OoKMGmLpJAM 



One of the legends says that once upon a time, there were 8 dire poor individuals who became gangsters to make a living and were caught by the authority. When an important festival came, 2 of their prison guards sympathized the 8 and let them go home to meet their folks. The eight promised the guards to return for their jail time.

But for what so ever reasons, the eight could not keep the promise to serve their time. So the 2 guards took their own lives for the negligence of their duties.

Later the eight realized that the 2 guards died for them, all the Eight came back to the prison and all committed suicide to redeem their guilt. According to the legend, the Two Guards and the Eight all became local gods.

Isn't reading folklore safer and healthier than watching political shows?

Sun Lasting (Crystal Huang):

Old topics on the recurring stage. The top one- The Roots of Violence/Grievance. And the rest, regarding the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo shooting in Paris:

- What is Freedom? What is Art? Is there existing- art for art's sake, or the-Pen/brush-mightier-than-the Sword Cartoonist Art? What are differences between "courage+ integrity" vs. "obscurantism + pressure-under-paychecks"?

- What is Freedom? What is Art? Is there existing- art for art's sake, or the-Pen-mightier-than-the Sword? What are differences between "courage+ integrity" vs. "obscurantism + repressive
paychecks"?

2 scenarios and the Welcome vs. Unwelcome Solutions.

(1) An unwelcome version: An event embedded in eventful contexts - the underlining issues of the intertwining of the extremists' religionism, ingrained racism/ethnicism, and the globally stratified socio--politico-economic hegemony, reinforced by the propagandized conservative/libertine ideologies

- Spend money on enhancing educational quality and opportunities, increasing life chances for the disadvantaged, NOT on creating more weaponry, indoctrination, and Divide-n-Conquer tactics.

(2) An Easy-n-Light perspective: bad guys who are different from us did bad things
- Execute them, done?
