About Me

So, basically this blog was started by envy. Kulam Ikan Tetangga (the neighbor's fish pond) is a variation to the saying that goes "the neighbor's Grass is always greener". The Neighbor's Fish Pond will always have fatter and more fish (than your own fishpond). And so it is.

The Grudge Blues

Demikian bibit kejadulan dalam diri ini, menghasilkan kegemaran gue pada enka lama Meiko Kaji berjudul Urami Bushi yang dipakai Quentin Tarantino untuk Kill Bill 2.
Meiko Kaji ini adalah bintang pilem Jepang yang lumayan kondiang pada masanya, mungkin hingga sekarang... akrab untuk penggemar pilem-pilem cult Jepun. Tampangnya huhuh, mayan sangar lah ya.



Lirik lagunya gue browse di Internet, dan huhuh, ternyata isinya lumayan emo lah ya, namanya juga Enka. Kalau di sini Enka itu padanannya mungkin keroncong dengan lirik puitis sendu mendayu (salah satu alasan kenapa Bengawan Solo itu kondiang banget di Jepun karena mirip sama Enka)

Urami Bushi

Hana yo Kirei to, Odaterare,
Saite Mitanara, Sugu Chirasareru.
Baka-na, Baka-na,
Baka-na On'na no... Urami-bushi.


Sadame Kanashi to, Ariramete,
Naki-wo Misereba, Mata Nakasareru.
On'na, On'na,
On'na Namida no... Urami-bushi.


Nikui, Kuyashii, Yurusenai.
Kesu ni Kesenai, Wasure-rarenai.
Tsukinu, Tsukinu,
Tsukinu On'na no... Urami-bushi.


Yume yo Miren to, Warawarete,
Samete-misemasu, Mada Same-kirenu.
On'na, on'na,
On'na-gokoro no... Urami-bushi.


Makka-na Bara nya, Toge ga Aru.
Sashitaka-naiga Sasazu'nya-okanu.
Mo'eru, Mo'eru,
Mo'eru On'na-no... Urami-bushi.


Shinde Hanami ga, Sakuja Nashi,
Urami Hito-suji, Ikite-yuku.
On'na, On'na,
On'na Inochi no... Urami-bushi.

Terjemahan Inggris gaya bebasnya:
My Grudge Blues


You're beautiful, you're the flower, he praises you.
But if you bloom, he will get you scattered.
Stupid. So stupid.
I go so stupid singin' my grudge blues.


You can accept your pitiful fate.
But when you cry, he'll make you cry more.
Women, oh women,
It's women's tears that makes my grudge blues.


I hate you. Full of regret, never forgiven.
Try to erase my memory, but cannot forget you.
It never ends, never,
It never ends, 'cause that's my grudge blues.


They say it's a dream, embers of one-sided attachment, laughing at you.
So you decide to wake up, but fear to be fully awake.
Women, oh women,
Women's soul beats on my grudge blues.


Crimson roses have its sharp thorns.
Don't wanna hurt you, but have to stab you with my thorn.
Burning, it's burning,
It keeps on burning within my grudge


hohoho... di karaoke ada nggak ya lagu Urami Bushi ini, gue mau nyanyi deh kalo ada!
