“Gift” in German means “poison”.

I can no longer call myself a Star Wars fan. I’m sick of the same played-out aesthetics/tropes being remixed/regurgitated time-&-time again; I’m sick of the deteriorating characterization/worldbuilding which have been in play since 1983; I’m sick of the toxic fanboys from all ideological camps; I’m sick of the capitalist pigs who refuse to allow this IP into the public domain where it rightly belongs. So while I may still admire the first two films for their technical achievements and characters, I’m no longer capable of enjoying Star Wars in any capacity due to the reasons delineated above.

Over-dubs?

Super late, but…
Over-dubs are additional recordings that play over other recordings.
For example, most guitarists will record their guitar track, then a second identical one that plays over the original to create a bigger sound. Vocals, drums, ect. are done the same way. It’s called over-dubbing and the additional tracks are called over-dubs.
That Queen song has a ton of different vocal tracks going on is what it’s saying.

I wonder if he still got the same name, some 11 years on…

I find that answer vague and unconvincing. Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves?
Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

“Mist” in German means “Manure”, which is why when a perfume company (whose name I forget) tried selling their new “Mist” perfume it didn’t sell so well in Germany.

SethBling technically has a tied world-record speedrun of Dragster. He played it on an Atari 2600 Emulator he made in minecraft, but that’s technically legal.
