DOH!

I like watching The Simpsons…I can find myself giggling out loud when watching it (something I only do with Whose Line is it Anyway?, usually). I just netflixed seasons 1-7, so am excited to get them and relive all those oldies but goodies. Anyway, found several “Simpson Personality Quizzes”…yes, one of those many “Which x are you?” type quizzes! For one, I was Burns! How the heck?!?!?! On Blogthings, I was…


You Are Marge Simpson


You’re a devoted family member who loves unconditionally.

Sometimes, though, you dream about living a wild secret life!

You will be remembered for: your good cooking and evading the police

Your life philosophy: “You should listen to your heart, and not the voices in your head.”

which I guess I can see… but Burns?!?!?!??!?!?!

Anyway, congratulations to the Simpsons which will continue making us laugh until 2008, reaching its 19th season, and 400th episode in 2007. woohoo!

Oh. My. Goodness.

after hearing the freshmen class singing “I Ku’u Wa Li’ili’i” during song contest, i went to google to try and find the lyrics on it, because though i remember dancing hula to it, i couldn’t figure out what one of the words was. i couldn’t find any lyrics for it online.

that has happened several times, whenever i heard a hawaiian song, tried to google it, and found nothing. so i decided, maybe i should try and start a hawaiian lyrics website. with my background in the ‘olelo and in hula, i thought it would be a nice resource for anyone who needed to find a word in a song, or can’t think of a title of a song, but know a few key phrases… i mean, i do that all the time for english songs! why not a hawaiian one?

so i went through all the web domain hosting sites and finally settled on godaddy.com … and just as i was going to hit “submit” on my order for a domain for hawaiian song lyrics… i thought, hey i better check, just in case song lyrics are copyrighted or something.

good thing i did before i submitted! MAN.

you can be thrown in jail for publishing song lyrics? but there are so many english song lyrics sites out there!!!! i can’t believe it. so i stopped the godaddy.com process. i don’t want to get sued…can’t afford that at all! but that sucks because the next time someone is humming along a hawaiian song and mangling all the words … they won’t ever know that they’re not correct because they can’t look it up themselves on google! aiyiyi.

i understand it’s like posting someone’s poem online … but i mean, you usually give credit to the poet right? i’d think that you can publish the song lyrics with the haku mele‘s credit, but still cannot! that’s still a copyright infringement! wow, all those times i’d listen to my madonna songs over and over and over so that i could write down every single word so that me and my friends could read and sing it…we were in copyright violation! aiya! how’s that?!?!

this world is kinda sad nowadays.
