Want to learn some Romany today?

"I forgive you, and may God forgive you as I do." Te aves yertime mander tai te yertil tut o Del.

"Don't forget the 500,000." Na bister 500,000. (In reference to the Holocaust)

"Thank you." Nais tuke.

"I am going to shit on you." Ka xlia ma pe tute.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LiYj5GcDxxs - "All For The Best" from the movie of Godspell. Filmed while the World Trade Center was just completing construction. The cast of Godspell was the first cast to film on the World Trade. The final 10 seconds of this clip, paired with the lyrics, send chills up my spine.

First non-anonymous! Woot!

So, how do you say 500,000?

Those are interesting choices of phrases. :-) Especially that last one.

"In the End, everything will be ok."

*scene pans out to show the twin towers*

Life is filled with such little ironies. It's one of the many reasons I believe in God.

Oh dear... I haven't seen that in 25 years. It sure hit me, those last few seconds. I teared up... Thank you. That was such a wonderful play/movie.

And that is quite an assortment of Romany phrases! ROFL!

Godspell is amazing. I think On The Willows is my favorite from the show overall. It's just a great show.

And useful phrases to have, right? ;)

Re: I don't go to church - I listen to Godspell

Musical theatre men are amazing. I loooove musical theatre in general. I was at a "theatre" party last night of sorts and it was so much fun, drinking and singing along to a couple shows. I just truly enjoy musicals. I've found lots of people here do, it's a happy mix. ;)

And toootally chilling.

i know i'm getting to this post late...

i was in Godspell in High School. such a fun show. kicked my ass with all the dancing. i probly lost weight during it.
i told the story of the rich man settling accounts, i played the prodigal son(all girls school, doncha know), and was the recorder part in "On the Willows". i wonder if i could still play that?
but yeah...still think of it fondly.:) thanks for the memories.
