    Episode 9: Imperative - Build a better mousetrap

    · Radio Arlecchino: Italian Grammar and Culture Podcast

    asset title: Episode 9: Imperative - Build a better mousetrap filename: ra_09.mp3 track number: 9/22 time: 9:42 size: 7.96 MB bitrate: 112 kbps In Build a better mousetrap, we will focus on the tu forms of the imperative -- the most frequently used. While the tu forms of second- and third-conjugation verbs are the same as the present indicative, the forms for first-conjugation verbs are different. The imperative for these is the present indicative stem + -a, as in guarda! (look!). The second anomaly is in the negative command form, where non is placed in front of the infinitive of the verb rather than in front of the imperative verb. Let's listen as the Dottore demonstrates the new anti-mouse technology of the TopoKill 9000, a supertrap capable of catching more than a mouse!Dialog: TopoKill 9000Italian-------Dottore: Gentili ascoltatori, qui il vostro amico il Dottor Balanzone. Questa situazione vi è conosciuta? Non vi vergognate di dirmelo, lo so, lo so ... Colombina: Oh, Dottore, che orrore! che paura! che schifo!Dottore: Come dico ai miei allievi all'Università, 'Pudor non in habere sed in tenere est.'Colombina: E la soluzione, Egregio ...?Dottore: Eccola qua! La nuova TopoKill 9000!

Ma Lei crede che io sia in grado di utilizzarla correttamente?Dottore: Niente sarebbe più facile! Vieni, mia cara. Osserva cosa vuol dire 'semplicissimo uso'!Colombina: Oh, non lo so ... io, a dire il vero ... è che io ...Dottore: Non avere paura! Abbi coraggio! Eccola! Vedi quanto è bella! Dai, prendi.Colombina: Oh! E ora, come si fa ...?Dottore: Spingi la levetta ...Colombina: Così?Dottore: Brava! Spingila verso il basso .... Ecco! Benissimo! Colombina: Oh1 È facile ...English-------Dottore: Kind listeners, your friend Dottor Balanzone here. Is this situation familiar to you? Don't be ashamed to tell me so. I know, I know ...Colombina: Oh, Dottore, how horrible! How frightening! How disgusting!Dottore: As I tell my students at the University: 'The shame is not in the having, but in the keeping.'Colombina: And the solution, Professor?Dottore: Behold! The new TopoKill 9000! Anti-mouse technology presents a supertrap, without pesticides, that respects the environment, re-usable, with all-natural bait!Colombina: But does it take long to--Dottore: It's ready in a matter of seconds!Colombina: And is it simple to u--Dottore: Ever so easy to use!Colombina: But does it really wo---Dottore: Extremely efficient!Colombina: And, there aren't any, I mean ...Dottore: Sanitary!Colombina: But to children.--Dottore: Harmless to children and pets!Colombina: Oh, Dottore, this new TopoKill 9000 seems a marvel! But do you believe that I'm capable of using it properly?Dottore: Nothing could be easier! Come, my dear. Observe what 'Ever so easy to use' really means!Colombina: Oh, I don't know ... I, to tell the truth, it's that I ...Dottore: Do not be afraid! Have courage! Here it is! See how beautiful it is! Come on, take (it).Colombina: Oh! And now, what does one do?Dottore: Push the trigger ...Colombina: Like this?Dottore: Fine! Push it down .... There! Excellent! Colombina: Oh1 It's easy ...Dottore: And what had I told you? Now, remove the bait cover ...Colombina: Ah! Done! Dottore: Perfect! The TopoKill 9000 is now ready to be used! Place the trap in an appropriate place ...Colombina: Mice rarely cross open surfaces ...Dottore: So, set the trap with the opening turned to the wall!Colombina: Here? Like that?Dottore: Right there, fine. Just like that ...Colombina: And now?Dottore: Perform a check at regular intervals!Colombina: Gracious!Dottore: Pulcinella! Zounds!We must point out that the use of spaghetti as bait is inadvisable.Colombina: But, Dottore, what shall I do now to free this wretch's finger?Dottore: Simply press down rapidly on the little door ...And the TopoKill 9000 is already ready to be re-used!Colombina: Poor Pulcinella! Come with me. Don't cry any more ...Dottore: Dear listener: Get the TopoKill 9000 and say as the Dottore says --Mus musculus, Hail -- and Farewell!Dialog: A phone call from Antonella in ItalyItalian-------Eric: Pronto...Antonella: Ciao, Eric!

    Episode 22: Episode 22: Truth and Consequences

    · Radio Arlecchino: Italian Grammar and Culture Podcast

    asset title: Episode 22: Episode 22: Truth and Consequences filename: ra_22.mp3 track number: 22/22 time: 12:07 size: 11.37 MB bitrate: 128 kbps If things had not been so wildly hectic here at Radio Arlecchino of late, this exciting episode would have appeared quite a bit sooner! But here it is at last, full of bone-chilling encounters of the second and third kind! Hypothetically speaking, that is. If you don’t tell the truth, you have to face the consequences. And we spell it all out for you, in every poignant tense and mood required. And what if Antonella were suddenly to be whisked away to Rome again, leaving Eric to his own devices in front of the microphone? Would it be sad, or would a clever plan be hatched? What if you were to listen in…?Dialog: ItalianNostalgia e desiderio Antonella: Se potessimo tornare indietro...Eric: Non lo farei, neanche se potessi.Antonella: Come mai? Credevo che tu fossi preso dalla nostalgia.Eric: Più forte della nostalgia ora è il mio desiderio di avere un incontro ravvicinatoAntonella: del secondo tipo?Eric: e anche del terzo.Flashback 1 Arlecchino: Ecco, arriva il Dottore! Temo che lui ce l'abbia con me. Mi arrampico sulla scala, così non mi vedrà..Flashback 2Pantalone: Non c'è nessun altro qui che abbia visto quello che è successo? Colombina: Te lo racconto io come è andata. Dunque, quando ha visto che ero proprio lì sotto, ha messo appositamente un piede male sulla scala! Mi ha guardato all'alto e penso proprio che l'abbia fatto apposta a cadere.Flashback 3Antonella: Sopra la scrivania, su quello scaffale... Prendi quella scatola...Eric: Cosa c'è dentro...?Antonella: Dai, dai, svita il cappuccio...Eric: Antonella... ma cos'è questo?Antonella: Oh, scusa, hai preso quella sbagliata, scusa, scusa... Ci dev'essere un'altra, controlla.Eric: La vedo, ma oso aprirla?Antonella: Ma sì! Abbi coraggio, Eric!Eric: Accidenti!Antonella: Oh, Eric! Che mani di pasta frolla che hai! Quelli sono i miei fagioli saltellanti!Flashback 4Dottore: Avete visitato il Vittoriano? Avete ammirato il Foro Romano?i turisti: Sì!Dottore: Siete andati ai Musei Vaticani? Avete messo la mano nella Bocca della Verità?i turisti: Sì!Dottore: Avete camminato da Piazza Navona fino alla Fontana di Trevi?i turisti: Sì!Dottore: Avete salito la scalinata in Piazza di Spagna?i turisti: Oh, sì!Dottore: Siete stanchi?i turisti: Sì!Antonella: Quei poveri turisti hanno camminato per tutta Roma in piena estate!Eric: Perciò sono stanchissimi.Flashback 5Dottore: Se ho dei petardi! Pulcinella, portami una scatola di petardi per il giovanotto... E per la signorina, queste meravigliose candele magiche “Gatto Nero”, un balocco divertente per tutta la famiglia...Oh, Pulcinella sì lo conoscono... Eccoli eccoli eccoli! Signori e signore, bambini di tutte le età, venite... sentitemi... Partecipate alle feste di San Giovanni, di Capodanno, di Natale, a tutte le feste dell'anno... Qui ci sono i rumori più sbalorditivi, le luci più brillanti, i colori più stravaganti, il fumo più misterioso, qui ci sono... i fuochi d'artificio Gatto Nero!Sì, sì... i razzi “Gatto Nero” sono giustamente famosi in tutto il mondo! Osservate...Accendo ora la miccia... Colombina, per favore...Colombina: Ecco, DottoreDottore: Grazie, mia cara... Et nunc... State per vedere qualcosa di veramente inverosimile....Colombina: Oh! Lei senz'altro lo vedrà, Dottore!Dottore: Tre... due... uno... Fuoco!Meravigliatevi ora davanti all'incomparabile pirotecnica 'Gatto Nero'!Antonella: Il Dottore ha fatto un bel viaggio sulla luna...Eric: grazie a Pulcinella che gli ha dato una mano con il razzo.Riflessioni e ricordi Eric: E se tu non fossi andata in Italia quell'estate, io non sarei rimasto qui da solo nello studio.Antonella: È vero che qui nello studio ci si può sentire abbandonati...Eric: Soprattutto in estate, quando i nostri amici attori sono tutti partiti per andare in vacanza.Antonella: Sarei molto più contenta adesso se fossero qui con noi.Eric: Pantalone rimproverebbe Pulcinella...Antonella: se Pulcinella avesse la faccia tosta di affrontarlo. Eric: Se vedesse entrare un bel giovanotto, Arlecchina--Antonella: --farebbe senz'altro la civettaEric: e Colombina si arrabbierebbe. Se Pulcinella suonasse il mandolino....Antonella: potremmo ballare la tarantella.Eric: dovremmo ballare invece la square danceAntonella: se ci fosse la signora Balanzone. Eric: E dove sono andati quei Balanzone?Antonella: Hanno lasciato un messaggio sulla segreteria telefonica. Senti.Dottor Balanzone: Saremmo andati a Rimini a trovare i genitori della signora Balanzone se non ci avessero invitato a partecipare a un seminario sulla square dance ad Austin! A dopo, amici! State bene! Buone vacanze!Antonella: E Pantalone?Eric: Ha lasciato questo biglietto:Ha scritto: 'Avevo intenzione di rimanere a Venezia, nonostante la folla di turisti, ma invece sarò nel Cadore... È vero, non amo le montagne. Comunque, a dire il vero, non ci andrei affatto se il Duca che mi ospiterà non avesse una nipote diciottenne che sta per ereditare un sacco di quei ducati.'Antonella: Ho sentito abbastanza. Il duca e i suoi ducati. Certe cose non cambiano mai...Eric: E tu, cosa faresti se non dovessi stare qua?Antonella: Bene, mio caro, stavo proprio per dirtelo... Io, di queste ipotesi, non ne faccio. Come dovresti ormai ben sapere, neanch'io rimarrò qui...Eric: Non è possibile! Di nuovo?Antonella: È estate... Roma! Ciao, Eric! Ti mando una cartolina!Eric: A presto, Antonella! Buon viaggio e buon divertimento!Antonella: Grazie! Ciao! Eric: Ma cosa faccio io adesso? Se ci fosse un modo di farlo, anch'io ci andrei. Se ci fosse giustizia in questo mondo, anch'io ammirerei il panorama dal Gianicolo... anch'io mangerei tartufo a Piazza Navona... anch'io berrei acqua Pansellegrino davanti al Colosseo... Dialog: EnglishNostalgia e desiderio Antonella: If we could turn back...Eric: I wouldn't do it, even if I could.Antonella: How come? I thought you were overcome with nostalgia.Eric: Stronger than nostalgia now is my desire to have a close encounter--Antonella: of the second type?Eric: and of the third as well.Flashback 1Arlecchino: There, here comes the Dottore! I'm afraid he has it in for me. I'll climb up the ladder, that way he won't see me.Flashback 2Pantalone: Is there noone else who saw what happened?Colombina: I'll tell you how it went. Now, when he saw that I was right under there, he deliberately took a false step on the ladder! He looked at me from above and I do believe he fell on purpose.Flashback 3Antonella: Above the desk, on that shelf... Get that jar...Eric: What's inside...?Antonella: Go on, unscrew the lid...Eric: Antonella... what's this?Antonella: Oh, sorry, you got the wrong one, sorry, sorry... There should be another one, take a look.Eric: I see it, but do I dare open it?Antonella: Of course! Be brave, Eric!Eric: Yikes!Antonella: Oh, Eric! What a butterfingers you are. Those are my jumping beans!Flashback 4Dottore: Have you visited the Vittoriano? Have you admired the Roman Forum?The Tourists: Yes!Dottore: Have you gone to the Vatican Museums? Have you put your hands in the Mouth of Truth?The Tourists: Yes!Dottore: Have you walked from Piazza Navona to the Trevi Fountain?The Tourists: Yes!Dottore: Have you climbed the Spanish Steps?The Tourists: Oh, yes!Dottore: Are you tired?The Tourists: Yes!Antonella: Those poor tourists have walked all over Rome in the middle of the summer!Eric: That's why they're worn out.Flashback 5Dottore: Do I have firecrackers! Pulcinella, bring me a box of firecrackers for the young man. And for the young lady, these wonderful Gatto Nero sparklers, a fun-filled amusement for the whole family.Oh, Pulcinella they know... Here they are, here they are, here they are! Ladies and gentlemen, children of all ages, come, hear me... Join in the feasts of Saint John, of the New Year, of Christmas, in all the holidays of the year... Here are the most amazing sounds, the most brilliant lights, the most extravagant colors, the most mysterious smoke, here are... Gatto Nero fireworks!Yes, yes... Gatto Nero rockets are justly famous throughout the world! Observe...Now I light the fuse... Colombina, if you please...Colombina: There you are, DottoreDottore: Thank you, my dear... Et nunc... You're about to see something truly incredible....Colombina: Oh! You're about to see it for sure, Dottore!Dottore: Three... two... one... Fire!Now wonder in amazement before the incomparable Gatto Nero pyrotechnics!Antonella: The Dottore took a fine trip to the moon...Eric: thanks to Pulcinella who gave him a hand with the rocket.Riflessioni e ricordi Eric: And if you hadn't gone to Italy that summer, I wouldn't have been left here alone in the studio.Antonella: It's true that here in the studio one can feel abandoned...Eric: Especially in the summer, when our actor friends have all left to go on vacation.Antonella: I would be much happier now if they were here with us.Eric: Pantalone would scold Pulcinella...Antonella: if Pulcinella had the cheek to confront him. Eric: If she saw a handsome young man come in, Arlecchina--Antonella: --would surely play the flirtEric: and Colombina would get mad. If Pulcinella played the mandolin...Antonella: we could dance the tarantella.Eric: instead we would have to dance a square danceAntonella: if Mrs Balanzone were here.Eric: And where have those Balanzones gone?Antonella: They left a message on the answering machine. Listen.Dottor Balanzone: We would have gone to Rimini to visit Mrs Balanzone's parents if we had not been invited to participate in a square dance seminar in Austin! See you later, friends! Stay well! Have a great vacation!Antonella: And Pantalone?Eric: He left this note:He wrote: 'I intended to stay in Venice, in spite of the crowd of tourists, but instead I will be in the Cadore... It's true, I'm not fond of the mountains. Anyway, to tell the truth, I wouldn't go at all if the Duke who will be hosting me didn't have an eighteen-year-old niece who's about to inherit a pile of ducats.'Antonella: I've heard enough. The duke and his ducats. Some things never change...Eric: And you, what would you do if you didn't have to stay here?Antonella: Well, my dear, I was just about to tell you... These hypotheses, I'm just not going to be making them. As you ought to know by now, I'm not staying here either...Eric: It's not possible! Again?Antonella: It's summer... Rome! Ciao, Eric! I'll send you a postcard!Eric: See you soon, Antonella! Have a good trip and have fun!Antonella: Thanks! Ciao! Eric: Now what do I do? If there were a way to do it, I would go too. If there were justice in this world, I too would admire the view from the Janiculum... I too would eat tartufo in Piazza Navona... I too would drink Pansellegrino water in front of the Coliseum....

And now I'm happy to present to you the new... uh, incarnation.... of this specialty, The Pleasure SandwichDialog: ItalianII. In ospedaleEric: Antonella, ci sei?Antonella: Sì Eric, eccomi! Gentili ascoltatori, bentornati! Mi dispiace dovervelo dire, ma siamo qui all'ospedale La Fenice, dove il Dottor Balanzone è stato portato dopo il suo incidente. Eh sì, è caduto proprio davanti al cinema dove avrebbe assistito alla prima del nuovo film di Arlecchino...Sig.ra Balanzone: Ah, mi bel Balanzaun... mio Balanzonino caro...!Antonella: Stiamo parlando con la signora Balanzone. Fra poco speriamo di avere qualche notizia dal medico. Eric: E come sta la signora?Antonella: Signora Balanzone, ci permette di farLe qualche domanda?Sig.ra Balanzone: Per la radio?Antonella: Sì, signora... Spettacolo Stasera... va in onda su Radio Arlecchino.Sig.ra Balanzone. Ben mo sicuro... Solo un attimino, per favore.Mi dica.Antonella: Ci hanno detto che Lei e il Dottore eravate appena tornati dall'America quando siete arrivati oggi a Venezia per la prima.Sig.ra Balanzone. È vero. Eravamo in Texas per fare pubblicità al film. Forse gli ascoltatori sanno che alcune scene sono state girate ad Austin...Antonella: E come avete trovato lo Stato della Stella Solitaria?Sig.ra Balanzone. Mo ci è piaciuto moltissimo! E chiaramente la cucina texana ha affascinato il Dottore. Con Pantalone e la What-a-Pleasure hanno firmato un contratto per aggiungere il Pasto Arlecchino al loro menu di 'pasti allegri' per i bambini... Con ogni piccolo Pleasure Burger un pupazzo di Arlecchino, o una bambolina di Arlecchina...Antonella: Oh, mi piace molto questa di Arlecchina, che carina...Sig.ra Balanzone. Il Dottore si era portato questi Pasti Arlecchino da mangiare durante l'intervallo del film... A me non piacciono così tanto come a mio marito... Gliene posso offrire uno?Antonella: Grazie, mi piacerebbe molto assaggiarne uno, forse dopo la trasmissione. Altri ricordi memorabili oltre al marketing?Sig.ra Balanzone. Oh sì, la cosa più bella è stata imparare a ballare la square dance! Non può immaginare quanto sia emozionante! Pochi lo sanno, ma il Dottore è proprio un gran bravo ballerino!Antonella: Chi l'avrebbe detto...?Sig.ra Balanzone. Nessuno! Ma ora con il film... Oh, non resisto più alla tentazione di svelare questo segreto! La scena chiave del film di Arlecchino è proprio una danza! Sono sicura che Le piacerà vedere come il Dottore ed io conquistiamo il West con la nostra square dance!Antonella: Non vediamo l'ora --il Dottor Ibbardi: Buona sera, signore. Sono il dottor Ibbardi. Quale di voi è la signora Balanzone?Sig.ra Balanzone. Oh, dottore! Asomme! Sono io! Come sta mio marito?il Dottor Ibbardi: Purtroppo la situazione è piuttosto seria e non mi piace per niente...Sig.ra Balanzone. Eh ben ben!il Dottor Ibbardi: Quando Suo marito è scivolato sul tappeto rosso --Sig.ra Balanzone: Sì...?il Dottor Ibbardi: ed è caduto, ha subito una grave lesione alla sua dignità.Antonella: quindi, la diagnosi, dottore?il Dottor Ibbardi: Gluteus addoloratus!Sig.ra Balanzone: e la prognosi, dottore?il Dottor Ibbardi: Gli abbiamo dato un sedativo. Prima di addormentarsi ha detto qualcosa che non ho capito... che gli sarebbe piaciuto che gli portassimo un Pasto Arlecchino.Sig.ra Balanzone. Puvratt!il Dottor Ibbardi: e domani cominceremo una lunga e costosissima serie di trattamenti e fisioterapie.Sig.ra Balanzone. Sì, mo questi trattamenti, queste fisioterapie... al povero Dottore daranno molto fastidio?il Dottor Ibbardi: Non si preoccupi, signora. Li ho amministrati tante volte ormai nella mia carriera e mi sono abituato. Non mi faranno nessun male, Le assicuro.Sig.ra Balanzone. Mo a dire il vero, dottore, io intendevo --Eric: Grazie mille, Antonella! Dobbiamo tornare ora allo studio! Grazie anche a tutti i nostri gentili radioascoltatori! Alla prossima edizione di Spettacolo Stasera!Dialog: EnglishAt the Hospital Eric: Antonella, are you there?Antonella: Yes, Eric, here I am! Dear listeners, welcome back! I'm sorry to have to tell you, but we're here at La Fenice Hospital, where Doctor Balanzone was brought following his accident. Ah yes, he fell right in front of the movie theatre where he was to attend the premiere of Arlecchino's new film...Mrs Balanzone: Ah, my beloved Balanzone!Antonella: We're talking to Mrs Balanzone. Soon we hope to have some news from the physician.Eric: And how is Mrs Balanzone?Antonella: Mrs Balanzone, may we ask you some questions?Mrs Balanzone: For the radio?Antonella: Yes, ma'am... Spettacolo Stasera... on the air on Radio Arlecchino.Mrs Balanzone: Why, certainly... Just a bit of a moment, please.Yes, go ahead.Antonella: We've heard that you and the Dottore had just returned from America when you arrived today in Venice for the premiere.Mrs Balanzone: That's right. We were in Texas to publicize the movie. Your listeners might know that some scenes were shot in Austin.Antonella: And what did you think of the Lone Star State?Mrs Balanzone: Oh, we loved it! And of course Texas cuisine captivated the Dottore. With Pantalone and What-a-Pleasure they've signed a contract to add the Arlecchino Meal to their menu of 'cheerful meals' for children. With each little Pleasure Burger an Arlecchino figure or an Arlecchina doll.Antonella: Oh, I really like this one of Arlecchina, it's so sweet...Mrs Balanzone: The Dottore brought these Arlecchino meals along to eat during the intermission of the movie... I don't like them as much as my husband does... May I offer you one?Antonella: Thank you, I really would like to try one, perhaps after the broadcast. Any other memorable moments aside from the marketing?Mrs Balanzone: Oh yes, the most wonderful thing was learning to square dance. You can't imagine how exciting! Few people know this, but the Dottore is really quite a fine dancer!Antonella: Who would have guessed...?Mrs Balanzone: Nobody! But now with the movie... Oh, I can't resist the temptation to reveal this secret any longer! The key scene in Arlecchino's movie is in fact a dance! I just know you'll like seeing how the Dottore and I win the West with our square dance!Antonella: We can't wait--Dr Ibbardi: Good evening, ladies. I'm Dr Ibbardi. Which of you is Mrs Balanzone?Mrs Balanzone: Oh, doctor! It's me! How is my husband?Dr Ibbardi: Unfortunately the situation is rather serious and it doesn't please me at all.Mrs Balanzone: Goodness gracious!Dr Ibbardi: When your husband slipped on the red carpet and fell, he suffered a serious injury to his dignity.Antonella: So, the diagnosis, Doctor?Dr Ibbardi: Gluteus addoloratus!Mrs Balanzone: And the prognosis, Doctor?Dr Ibbardi: We've given him a sedative. Before he fell asleep, though, he said something I didn't understand... that he would like for us to bring him an Arlecchino Meal.Mrs Balanzone: Poor thing!Dr Ibbardi: and tomorrow we will begin a long and very costly series of treatments and physical therapies.Mrs Balanzone: Oh, but these treatments, these physical therapies... will they cause the poor Doctor a great deal of discomfort?Dr Ibbardi: Don't worry, ma'am. I've administered them many times now during my career and I've grown accustomed to them. They won't hurt me at all, I assure you.Mrs Balanzone: Well, actually, Doctor, I meant --Eric: Thanks a million, Antonella! We must now return to the studio! Thanks also to our gentle listeners! We'll talk to you again on the next edition of Spettacolo Stasera!

    MRS 019: My Ruby Story Eric Berry

    · All Ruby Podcasts by Devchat.tv

    MRS 019: Eric Berry Today's episode of My Ruby Story is an interview with Eric Berry, who is our newest panelist on Ruby Rogues. [01:10] Introduction to Eric Eric is one of Chuck's friends from early in his programming career. Eric is @coderberry on Twitter. He's been a Ruby developer for about 9 years and doing software for about 19 years. [02:15] How Eric got into programming He was hired to do HTML for a company called vLender. Eric worked in Photoshop 2 (pre-layers). He, then, went on an LDS mission and while on his mission, he built a system to track the cars and assets for the mission. Then, his brother moved out to Switzerland to join an eCommerce company. Eric bought a PHP book, read it, got a passport, and started showing up at his work. Eventually they hired him. They started shifting over to Java. They coded Java with VIM. While in Switzerland, Eric and his brother had created an app that allowed them to share photos with family back home. His brother raised funds and they moved to England to build up the photo sharing app. They eventually sold shareaphoto.com to HP. Eric jokes that this was his "college." 9/11 hit and Eric's brother moved back to the states. Eric stayed for another 2 years, then moved to Las Vegas. He was a residential appraiser for about 4 years. While there, he built some software to help the company. Eric took a pay cut from $180,000 to $65,000 per year to go back to software. He and his wife eventually moved back to Utah and got a job working for AtTask (now Workfront) [10:43] Eric finds Ruby Eric and one of his co-workers went out and created projects with Django and Rails. They both loved Rails. Eric was using Rails at AtTask in the marketing department and spent a ton of time figuring out how to deploy Rails with mongrel. Eric has also worked for Omniture (acquired by Adobe), Instructure, and One-on-One Marketing. [14:12] Teach Me to Code screencasts and Chuck's story Initially, Eric created Teach Me to Code as an homage to Ryan Bates from RailsCasts. Eric left his mistakes and fumbling in. He got feedback from people that liked that it showed how to debug and figure out issues. Chuck came in to create content for Teach Me to Code. Eric's company and focus moved to Groovy on Grails which prompted him to hand the series off to Chuck. Eric mentions Chuck's tenacity. Teach Me to Code is a large part of Chuck's journey into podcasting. [19:11] Codesponsor Eric has been building other people's businesses for about 20 years. He's done all kinds of projects at all levels. He doesn't want to continue on a path where he doesn't participate in the end result of the project. Eric tried out AdWords. It'll pay off in 2-5 years, but he has not passion for it. Eric loves programming and developers and wanted to do something that served them. Open Source is starting to have problems with sustainability. People are building their businesses on top of software that's maintained by 1-2 developers. These folks have a day job and aren't paid to write their open source software. The get a bunch of requests for help and that workload doesn't go away. Then they get burned out. Then you have the "no longer maintained" notices on projects that you're using. Codesponsor solves this problem by bringing marketing into the picture to put some money into the developers' pockets and gives them some validation for what they did. Eric talks about a pay me button that Kent C. Dodds put on some of his repos. He didn't get any contributions. The problem with corporate sponsors is that the developer feels obligated to provide unpaid support when their sponsor has a problem. OpenCollective explained. Their biggest problem is money is not coming in. Open Design Collective CodeSponsor allows companies that want to get in front of developers to put non-obtrusive, subtle text ads in the README's and websites of the projects without creating the issues that come with direct sponsorship. Mention of ReadTheDocs.org [37:02] Eric's current work situation and Nate Hopkins Eric talks about Nate Hopkins and Chuck mentions that Nate Hopkins was his first mentor as a professional developer. Eric shares a funny story about Chuck and Nate working together.

Qui ce n'è uno per te, Arlecchino!Arlecchina: Da chi è?Arlecchino: Vediamo ... oh! è da mio cugino Carlos ... quello che mi ha spiegato chi è la Befana ... 'Caro Arlecchino,' mi scrive ... 'ricordi come una volta volevi sapere tutto sulla Befana? e io ti raccontavo ...Carlos: Mentre i tre Re Magi andavano a Betlemme per portare i doni a Gesù Bambino, hanno visto una vecchia e hanno insistito che li seguisse per far visita al piccolo Gesù, ma la donna non ha voluto. Poco dopo, tuttavia, la vecchietta ha cambiato idea e, dopo aver preparato dei dolci per il bambino, ha cercato di raggiungere i Re Magi, ma loro erano già lontani e non ha potuto raggiungerli. Così, ancora oggi, la notte prima dell'Epifania (il 6 gennaio), la vecchietta, che si chiama la Befana, porta dei regali a tutti i bambini buoni nella speranza che uno di loro sia il Bambin Gesù. Quella notte tutti i bambini italiani vanno a dormire aspettando i regali della Befana che arriva volando su una scopa. Ma i regali arrivano solo ai bambini buoni, a quelli cattivi la Befana porta il carbone.Arlecchino: Come mi manca il mio bravo cuginoDialog: EnglishAntonella: Thank you, thank you! But what are these?Arlecchino: Oh, our cards!Colombina: The postman brought them to us, along with your package!Dottore: Ecce bigliettus tibi, Colombina!Colombina: Thank you, Dottore! Look! Here's one for you, Arlecchino!Arlecchina: Who is it from?Arlecchino: Let's see ... oh! it's from my cousin Carlos, the one who explained to me who the Befana is ... 'Dear Arlecchino' he writes ... 'do you remember how at one time you wanted to know everything about the Befana? and I told you ...Carlos: As the three kings were going to Bethlehem to take their gifts to the child Jesus, they saw an old woman and urged her to follow them to visit little Jesus, but the woman refused. Shortly thereafter, however, the little old lady changed her mind, and after preparing some sweets for the child, she tried to reach the three wise men, but they were already far away and she was unable to catch up with them. So, even today, on the night before Epiphany (the 6 January), the little old lady, called the Befana, takes gifts to all good children in the hope that one of them will be the little Jesus. On that night all Italian children go to sleep awaiting the gifts of the Befana, who arrives flying on a broomstick. But gifts come only to the good children; to the bad ones the Befana brings coal.Arlecchino: How I miss my good cousin!Dialog: ItalianThe Santa Lucia Christmas Market in BolognaPantalone: Ragazzi! Ecco un biglietto da Irene!Dottore: Irene, la mia concittadina!Pantalone: Proprio lei, Dottore! 'Caro Pantalone e Compagnia,' ci scrive, 'ricordate quel Natale che avete trascorso qui? Pulcinella andava sempre in cerca di dolci!'Irene: Santa Lucia è il mercatino di Natale dove tutti gli anni i miei genitori mi portavano a comprare qualcosa per il presepio e un pezzo di torrone o di croccante. Faceva freddo, ma passeggiavamo lentamente in mezzo a tanta gente e tutto brillava e profumava. Mi piacevano tanto le figurine per il presepio, soprattutto quelle che si muovevano, e sceglierne solo una da portare a casa era difficilissimo. Ho continuato ad andare a Santa Lucia anche da adulta; è sempre bellissimo, ma c'è un mistero: più io diventavo adulta, più il mercato diventava piccolo ... adesso sembra grandissimo solo alle mie bambine!Pantalone: Ah, quelle bambine oramai non saranno più tanto piccole neanche loro!Dottore: le mie figliocce ...Arlecchina: oh, non pianga, Dottore -- ecco un biglietto per Lei!Dialog: EnglishPantalone: Fellows! Here is a card from Irene!Dottore: Irene, my countrywoman!Pantalone: The very one, Dottore! 'Dear Pantalone and Company,' she writes, 'remember the Christmas that you spent here? Pulcinella was always off looking for sweets!'Irene: Santa Lucia is Bologna's Christmas market where my parents took me every year to buy something for the Nativity scene and a piece of nougat candy or hazelnut brittle. It was cold, but we would stroll slowly among all those people and everything was bright and smelled good. I loved the Nativity figures, especially the ones that moved, and to pick only one of them to take home was very hard. I kept going to Santa Lucia even as an adult; it's still quite beautiful, but there's one mystery: the older I've become, the smaller the market has gotten ... now it seems enormous only to my little girls!Pantalone: Ah, not even those little girls will be so very little by now!Dottore: My god-daughters ...Arlecchina: Oh, don't cry, Dottore -- here's a card for you!Dialog: ItalianLucky New Year TreatsDottore: Sì? Oh! Non creditur!Colombina: Da chi è, Dottore?Dottore: Una mia ex-studentessa! Sheilah! Quanto le piacevano le feste di Capodanno ... Sentite:Sheilah: Mi ricordo bene un Capodanno con una famiglia del Piemonte ...Per pranzo abbiamo mangiato lo zampone con lenticchie che la mamma aveva cucinato tutta la mattina (le lenticchie portano fortuna) e tante verdure fritte con una pastella leggerissima; per dolce, naturalmente, c'era il panettone. Abbiamo brindato con lo spumante. Fuori nevicava e faceva freddo, ma noi stavamo bene in casa insieme. L'anno prossimo vorrei tanto che anche mia madre cucinasse le lenticchie per Capodanno! Arlecchino: Tutto questo parlare di lenticchie e panettone! Mi fa venire una fame da ... da ...Arlecchina: Da Pulcinella?Arlecchino: Proprio così!Pantalone: Allora gradirai un po' di questo squisito pandoro di Verona che mi hanno regalato i miei nipoti!Dialog: EnglishDottore: Yes? Oh! Non creditur!Colombina: Who is it from, Dottore?Dottore: A former student of mine! Sheilah! How she loved the New Year's holiday! Listen:Sheilah: I remember well a New Year's spent with a Piedmontese family ...For lunch we ate a stuffed pig's foot with lentils that the mother had cooked all morning (lentils bring good luck) and so many vegetables fried in a really light batter; for dessert, of course, there was a panettone. We toasted with sparkling wine. Outside it was snowing and cold, but we were comfy together inside. Next year I'd really like for my mother to cook lentils for New Year's too!Arlecchino: All this talk of lentils and panettone! It's making me hungry as ... as ...Arlecchina: As Pulcinella?Arlecchino: That's it exactly!Pantalone: Then you will enjoy a bit of this exquisite Veronese pandoro that my nephews gave me!

He was formerly the Growth lead at Treehouse, an online coding education business and is currently the CEO of Single Grain, a digital marketing agency. Eric has a podcast based on growth hacking at http://growtheverywhere.com/. 3 Key Points: Often it’s beneficial for a business to expand its main money making channel instead of investing in new ones. Previous expertise shouldn’t be underestimated as it can lend itself to current ventures.

(Such as search engine optimization) 06:28 – Eric’s previous expertise hiring marketers allows him to vet agencies and determine their quality of work. 06:53 – Nathan and Eric discuss the latter’s earnings from Single Grain. 07:42 – For his newer business Care Sprout, Eric is delving into the senior living industry. 08:33 – Care Sprout has whittled its lead cost to 60-70$ per individual signing up for services. 10:05 – Nathan and Eric break down how Care Sprout makes money. 11:09 – A lot of businesses tend to neglect their main money making channel in favor of creating new ones. 11:27 – Eric talks about Care Sprout’s current money making channel, phone calls. 12:17 – Care Sprout spends about 30K a month for lead acquisition channels. (420 new leads per month.) 13:02 – Eric likes to look at his company’s numbers personally, but also uses a dashboard tool called Cyfe. 15:27 – Famous Five Resources Mentioned: Growth Geeks – The way Nathan hires growth hackers on a per project basis for things like info graphics, blog posts, and other growth projects Single Grain – Eric’s current business Care Sprout – Eric’s newer business Cyfe – Dashboard software Eric uses GrowthEverywhere – Eric’s Podcast @ericosiu – Eric’s Twitter LinkedIn – Eric’s LinkedIn Bill Gates – CEO Eric follows Emerson Spartz – CEO Eric follows Nathan Latka – CEO Eric follows TextExpander – Eric’s favorite online tool The Billionaire Who Wasn’t – Book Eric stands by Famous 5 Favorite Book?— The Billionaire Who Wasn’t – by Conor O’Clery What CEO do you follow?— Bill Gates, Emerson Spartz, Nathan Latka What is your favorite online tool?— Text Expander Do you get 8 hours of sleep?— Yes If you could let your 20 year old self know one thing, what would it be?—Keep going; those who persist will eventually succeed.

    Episode 10: Imperative - For best results

    · Radio Arlecchino: Italian Grammar and Culture Podcast

    asset title: Episode 10: Imperative - For best results filename: ra_10.mp3 track number: 10/22 time: 10:01 size: 8.23 MB bitrate: 112 kbps In Episode 10, For best results, we learn more about the 'noi' and 'voi' forms of the imperative mood. We also summarize the general rules for the use of pronouns with the imperative. By now, the 'noi' and 'voi' forms of the imperative should hold no mysteries: they're identical to the present indicative, and negative commands are made simply by placing a 'non' in front of the imperative form. Episode 10 comes to us from the center of Rome, where the Dottore will be showing tourists how to beat the heat of the Eternal City with Acqua Minerale Pansellegrino! Let's listen. Dialog Italian Acqua Minerale Pansellegrino Dottore: Eccoci nel centro di Roma, Città Eterna... in estate Città Eternamente Calda.

    Episode 120 - Gary Corbett Part 2

    · Decibel Geek Podcast

    To say that last week's part 1 of our conversation with keyboardist Gary Corbett was popular would be an understatement. In just 7 days, part 1 exceeded download totals for any episode in show history. The audience feedback was overwhelming with many, especially KISS fans, expressing gratitude for a peak behind the curtain of a working band that has had its share of controversy. This week's second half is no exception. Gary shares his happy recollections of his time spent on the road with Paul Stanley during his 1989 solo tour. The solo band, comprised of Stanley, Corbett, guitarist Bob Kulick, bassist Dennis St. James, and drummer Eric Singer formed a tight bond and showed a side of Stanley that was much easier to work with according to our interview subject. While this tour seemed a happy time for Paul Stanley, Gary explains that there was definite pushback from the rest of the KISS camp and not just Eric Carr. He also shares an eerily prophetic moment from Carr after he took in a Stanley solo performance. We then segue into discussion of Eric Carr's decline in health. Gary describes the physical symptoms that cropped up during the end of the Hot in the Shade tour and the subsequent surgeries and chemotherapy. Many rumors have swirled around for years about Eric Carr's status in the band after his cancer diagnosis. Gary shares his memories of what took place between Carr and his KISS bandmates and what led to Carr's family cutting off all contact to Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley during the end of Eric's life. Gary also shares his objections to certain things portrayed in The Eric Carr Story by Greg Prato; a book in which Corbett is quoted alongside Bruce Kulick, Carrie Stevens, and others that were close to the late drummer. He also states how his side of things are backed up by, what many would consider, a surprising source. Hot in the Shade was released as, basically, a collection of demos that were polished up for cost-cutting measures. Gary explains how one of the biggest tracks on Hot in the Shade featured a future lineup of KISS. Gary then takes us a bit by surprise by stating that Eric Carr was, indeed, fired by KISS and explains the different ways in which they were pushing to attain his exit from the band during a very difficult time as well as their motivation. During this part of the conversation, Gary recounts more of Eric's displeasure with his drum solo being taken away during the beginning of the Hot in the Shade tour. He also claims that Paul Stanley, in particular, had a certain way of, in his words, "torturing" Carr. Gary then shares details of the funeral and the tension that hung in the air as Eric's KISS bandmates showed up for the services. He also talks about the infamous feud between Gene Simmons and Howard Stern due to Stern's comments on the air about Eric's death. Gary reveals his role in this drama that wound up being played out on Stern's television show later. He also shares details of the icy reception for Simmons and Stanley at the post-funeral dinner. One positive note from the funeral is shared by Gary as he describes the miles-long turnout of thousands of fans along the road for the procession. Despite the fan support though, Carr's parents were uncomfortable with the attention. Chris tells Gary about seeing footage of he and Carr goofing off on camera during the Hot in the Shade rehearsals in bootleg footage that circulates among fans as Exposed II. Gary goes on to discuss some footage that he took himself of the band during the band's Smashes Thrashes and Hits tour and, in particular, a certain story of Carr experiencing hash in Amsterdam for the first time. Gary describes some of the conversations that took place among the band during the Hot in the Shade era including the Paul and Gene's stories of Ace and Peter, talks of a possible reunion, and the tension that resulted from a makeup-era flashback scene that was filmed for the 'Rise to It' video. Gary also shares how Eric Carr's naivety and innocence worked against him in the confines of the music industry. He talks about Gene and Paul's business savvy and what he thinks it will lead to in the future. We then ask Gary about the Revenge era and he describes his memories of the club shows that led up to the tour to break in new drummer Eric Singer. He explains how the emotional toll of Eric's death kept him from being able to continue to work with the band and how he made his exit from the band. He also talks about how the tension, with Paul Stanley, in particular still exists after the two saw each other backstage in Nashville during the 2012 co-headlining tour with Motley Crue. Gary Corbett remains friends with current KISS drummer Eric Singer. We get Gary's take on Eric's role in the band portraying the Catman character and how he feels about Singer's extended employment with KISS. Finishing up the conversation Gary explains how Eric Carr's memory and friendship are absolutely the highlight of his time working for the band as well as his current projects, plans for the future, and success that he's had with other artists such as the Marley Brothers and Cyndi Lauper.

    70: Deck Construction Tips with PucaTrade Founder Eric Freytag

    · MTG Pro Tutor - Insights, Tips & Advice from Magic: The Gathering Pros

    Eric Freytag is the founder and CEO of PucaTrade.com. He’s been playing Magic since 1994, has 14 commander decks, and spends most of his MtG time brewing in Vintage, Legacy, and Modern. Click to Tweet: I got a ton of value from Eric Freytag when he shared his story on #MTGProTutor today! Click here: http://bit.ly/mtgprotutor-ep70 First Set  Mirage Favorite Set  Battle for Zendikar Favorite Card Crucible of Worlds What makes Magic: The Gathering fun for you? Eric believes Magic is the best game in the world thanks to its perfect blend of strategy, technique, deck building, and creativity. The community Magic has fostered is incredible, and he thinks this is because the game has so many facets and ways to play. Magic’s social scene and sitting down with friends to play the game in person is one of the most important aspects of the game for Eric. Early Challenge Deck building was a hurdle Eric had to overcome in his early days playing magic. Evaluating cards and making cuts causes a ripple effect through the rest of the 75 cards, and it took practice building lots of decks for him to understand that. Eric spent time identifying each card he liked, and then found cards relevant to his deck’s concept that were good to draw at any stage of the game. Looking for cards that stack is important for him, since you don’t want two of the same card if one of them will be useless if both are drawn. How to Put Together a Commander Deck Eric maintains a detailed spreadsheet of his cards where he organizes them based on their role and type. Next comes making columns for cards that pair well with each other and what type of situations they do well in. At some point making cuts becomes necessary, and you will have to get rid of some pet cards if they aren’t good in most situations. Be honest with yourself about if a card is going to synergize well with the deck concept you are working towards. Getting too attached to cards at this stage in a brew is something Eric finds dangerous. He looks at each card to see how many others it can combo well with, and loves when he finds ways for cards to come together and turn a disability in a match into an ability. What Has Magic Taught You About Yourself? Most of Eric’s personal growth in magic came from managing tilt. While he doesn’t feel incredibly competitive, he is emotionally invested in all his time spent trying to master the game with skill and creativity. If the deck he brewed doesn’t perform well, or he doesn’t pilot it right, he can definitely be thrown off balance. The feeling of personal failure is common to a lot of players when they play poorly. Eric sees managing tilt as not only an aspect of growing as a Magic player, but as improving as person. The best time Eric has had playing Magic is when he is having fun, even if he is not performing at his best. How to Manage Tilt Eric believes you can start right now, reading this sentence. Take a moment to acknowledge that at some point in the future you are going to mess up. You are going to fail at some aspect of Magic. Period. You might fail because of luck, because of bad drops, or because you played the wrong card. It happens to everyone, even the pros. You can mentally prepare for that moment now, and accept that the cards won’t be in your favor and that you’re going to make a mistake. Best Format Commander Biggest Mistake Players Make Eric finds tilt to be a major issue players face, and it’s an issue the player can directly control. A player can manage their reactions to what happens in a match. When players get dragged down by something that went wrong in the game they often stop paying attention. By controlling your reactions and staying engaged in the game your chances of pulling through to the end go up, even if it’s just a small amount. What's a Non-Magic Related Activity That Has Helped You Play? Eric found that Magic actually helped him with other activities. While he was a video editor he felt the same sense of creativity he got from building a Magic deck. Skills like knowing what cards to cut from his deck helped him take out unnecessary shots from the videos he was editing. Understanding his deck concepts worked in a similar way, letting Eric grasp what the overall vibe and aesthetic of his videos should be. On Creating PucaTrade Eric created PucaTrade based on how his playgroup traded cards and interacted with one another. The way they traded was personal and focused on giving rather than nickel and diming each other to death. This helped him realize that lots of players get trapped in their own way of playing Magic, where they don’t see the full spectrum of people who love the game. There are around 50-100 ways to play Magic, and Eric believes uniting that community through cards is one of the greatest things in the world. How to Tell if a Card Is Fake First and foremost, never damage or destroy a card to determine if it is fake. The best and easiest test to determine if you have a fake is to shine a LED flashlight through the back of the card. About 40% of the light should shine through the card. 95% of fake cards fail this test and will block all of the light. PucaTrade has a guide with steps you can follow if you feel you don’t have an authentic card, and if you still are questioning your trade you can mail it to PucaTrade and they will test it for you! Final Wisdom Playing with other people’s decks is something Eric doesn’t see enough players doing. When you play with someone’s deck that has been meticulously crafted and thought about for hours on end, you get to look through a window into their mind. Seeing what cards they value and prioritize gives you an incredible glimpse into how they play Magic.

    Episode 17: Likes and Dislikes - Casting call and scream test

    · Radio Arlecchino: Italian Grammar and Culture Podcast

    asset title: Episode 17: Likes and Dislikes - Casting call and scream test filename: ra_17.mp3 track number: 17/22 time: 14:39 size: 12.01 MB bitrate: 112 kbps There's plenty to like about this episode and about Arlecchino's new movie! In Episode 17, Casting call and scream test, we explore how to express likes and dislikes in the compound tenses, like the passato prossimo. And in a Spettacolo Stasera exclusive, Arlecchina recalls her harrowing experience when she answered Pantalone's casting call for the film! Let's listen ...Dialog: ItalianArlecchina e il suo provino a Spettacolo Stasera Antonella: Buona sera a tutti e benvenuti a Spettacolo Stasera! Ormai gli appassionati di cinema non parlano che di questo film! Da sempre stelle teatrali, adesso Arlecchino e colleghi stanno raggiungendo somme vette nella scalata al successo. Eric: E io sono stato il primo radiogiornalista ad intervistare l'affascinante co-star del nostro amico. Antonella: Ogni Dario ha la sua FrancaEric: Ogni Roberto la sua NicolettaAntonella: e ogni Arlecchino la suaEric: Arlecchina! Esclusivamente a Spettacolo Stasera!Antonella: Sentiamo!Eric: Prima di tutto, congratulazioni vivissime! Il film sta ottenendo un gran successo sia di critica che di pubblico, ma detto inter nos: Lei, Arlecchina, è senza alcun dubbio la ragione principale del successo di quest'opera.Arlecchina: Grazie mille, ma per cortesia, mi dia del tu, anzi dammi del tu...Eric: Io sono un suo, cioè, un tuo grande fan. Dicci alcuni retroscena del film...Arlecchina: Posso dire che era da parecchio tempo che Arlecchino aveva in mente questa storia intricatissima e piena di surrealismo magico. Eric: È piaciuta subito a tutti i protagonisti la trama?Arlecchina: No, per carità, questo non succede mai a teatro, figuriamoci al cinema! Ci ha emozionato la parte avventurosa del progetto, ma ad alcuni ha dato fastidio l'ambizione sfrenata di Arlecchino...Eric: E qual è stata la tua prima reazione?Arlecchina: Oh, a me ha affascinato tutto subito. E poi sai, mi è così simpatico Arlecchino...Eric: Ho saputo che sul set hai fatto una nuova amicizia.Arlecchina: Eh sì, ormai ne parlano tutti, la Signora Balanzone mi sta simpaticissima. Non hai idea le risate che ci siamo fatte a vedere il marito ballare la square dance. Mi piace da morire il suo accento bolognese, e poi... che cuoca meravigliosa!Eric: E che ruolo ha avuto Pantalone, visto che ha investito, pare, tanti soldi nel film.Arlecchina: Veramente preferirei cambiare argomento...Eric: Sembra che ti ripugni solo il nome di questa persona...Arlecchina: Appena hai nominato il suo nome, ho fatto un tuffo in un passato che vorrei dimenticare.Pantalone: Ho voglia di brindare, tra breve Arlecchina sarà tra le mie braccia, qui nel famoso studio 5 di Cinecittà... Appena finiremo il provino per la parte principale del film di Arlecchino, metterò nella bevanda di Arlecchina il filtro d'amore preparato dalla mia bisnonna. Lei berrà e si innamorerà della prima persona che vedrà, cioè me! L'idea mi emoziona.Arlecchina: Permesso, posso entrare?Pantalone: Ma prego, carissima, accomodati!Arlecchina: Buon giorno. Che caldo bestiale fuori, ma anche qui dentro non si respira!Pantalone: E allora, bando alle ciance! Va' dietro al separè, spogliati ed indossa il costume di scena, mentre io ti preparo una bella bevanda fresca.Arlecchina: Scusa, ma il film di Arlecchino non è mica su Tarzan.. perché dovrei indossare quel bikini striminzito di finta pelle di giaguaro? Mi fa schifo.Pantalone: Mia cara, non m'interessa che ti faccia schifo; se vuoi la parte devi recitare ora davanti a me con questo costume. Ti conviene non fare i capricci.Arlecchina: Mi deludi, Pantalone. Pensi che sia stupida e non abbia capito cosa vuoi veramente?Pantalone: Ma ti sbagli. Io voglio solo essere sicuro di fare la scelta giusta per la protagonista di quello che diventerà il più grande film dell'ultimo decennio...Arlecchina: D'accordo. Mi metterò questo costume ridicolo e reciterò per te, ma esigo che ci sia un'altra persona in questa stanza.Pantalone: Va bene, per dimostrarti che è solo la passione per l'arte a spingermi, chiamerò la guardia. Sbrigati, su, va' a metterti il costume. L'altoparlante: Una guardia con urgenza al Teatro 5. Una guardia con urgenza al Teatro 5, grazie.Pantalone: Ora metto il filtro nella sua aranciata. Sei pronta?Arlecchina: Mamma mia, quanto mi dà fastidio l'atteggiamento di Pantalone... Pronto? Eccomi!Pantalone: Che visione! Prego, rinfrescati con questa bibita prima di cominciare il provino.Guardia: Signo', che m'avete fatto chiama'? Io stavo a dormi' alla granne, ma poi m'hanno detto che c'era n'attrice famosa allo studio 5 e so' venuto de corsa...Pantalone: Guardia, maledizione, ma perché è già qui, di solito arriva sempre un'ora dopo, se ne vada!Arlecchina: Oh, mi gira la testa, Signore, chi è Lei, mi affascinano i suoi baffi, mi emozionano le sue basette, mi ... mi sento tremare tutta, svengo...Guardia: Ma ccomm'è bbella, ppoverina... Ma un momento, allora, vuol di' che fate 'nna ppellicola de Tarzan...? Fico!Pantalone: Maledizione!Dialog: EnglishArlecchina and her Screen Test on Spettacolo Stasera Antonella: Good evening, everybody and welcome to Spettacolo Stasera! By now movie fans are talking about nothing but this film! They've always been stars of the stage, and now Arlecchino and his colleagues are reaching dizzying heights on the ladder to success.Eric: And I was the first radio reporter to interview our friend's charming co-star.Antonella: Every Dario has his FrancaEric: Every Roberto his NicolettaAntonella: And every Arlecchino his--Eric: Arlecchina! Exclusively on Spettacolo Stasera!Antonella: Let's listen!Eric: First of all, warmest congratulations! The film is enjoying a great success, among both critics and the general public, but just between us, you, Arlecchina, are without a doubt the main reason for the success of this opus.Arlecchina: Thank you so much, but please, address me informally (as 'tu').Eric: I'm one of your biggest fans. Give us some background on the movie.Arlecchina: I can tell you that Arlecchino had this intricate story in mind for a long time... so full of magical surrealism.Eric: Did everybody like the plot right away?Arlecchina: Heavens no! That never happens in the theatre, much less in the movies! We were excited about the daring of the project, but some were put off by Arlecchino's unbridled ambition.Eric: And what was your first reaction?Arlecchina: Oh, it all charmed me right away. And of course you know how much I like Arlecchino...Eric: I understand you made a new friend on the set.Arlecchina: Oh yes, everybody's talking about it by now, I like Mrs Balanzone so much. You can't imagine what a laugh we had seeing her husband do his square dance. I adore her Bolognese accent, and then... what a marvelous cook!Eric: And what was Pantalone's role, seeing that he invested, it seems, quite a bit of money in the movie.Arlecchina: Actually I would prefer to change the subject.Eric: It seems that the mere mention of his name repulses you...Arlecchina: The moment you spoke his name, I was plunged into a past that I would rather forget.Pantalone: I feel like drinking a toast, soon Arlecchina will be in my arms, here on the famous Soundstage 5 at Cinecittà... As soon has we finish the screen test for the lead female role in Arlecchino's movie, I'll place my great-grandmother's love potion in Arlecchina's drink. She will drink--and fall in love with the first person she sees, to wit, me! The idea excites me.Arlecchina: Excuse me, may I come in?Pantalone: Of course, my dear! Make yourself at home!Arlecchina: Hello. It's so frightfully hot outside, but even in here one can barely breathe!Pantalone: Well then, so much for idle chat! Go behind the screen, undress, and put on this costume, while I make you a nice refreshment!Arlecchina: Say, this movie of Arlecchino's isn't about Tarzan... why should I wear this skimpy, phoney leopard-skin bikini? It's disgusting.Pantalone: My dear, I don't care if it disgusts you. If you want the part you've got to perform for me with this costume. It will behoove you not to be capricious.Arlecchina: You disappoint me, Pantalone. Do you think I'm stupid, that I don't understand what you're really after?Pantalone: But you're wrong. I only want to be sure I'm making the right choice for the heroine of what's going to be the biggest film of the last ten years.Arlecchina: Fine. I'll put on this ridiculous costume, and I'll read for you. But I insist there be someone else in the room.Pantalone: Very well, to show you that it's merely a passion for art that drives me, I'll buzz for the guard. Come on, hurry up, go put on the costume.P.A. System: Security to Soundstage 5, urgently. Security to Soundstage 5, urgently, thank you.Pantalone: Now I'll put that potion in her orangeade. Are you ready?Arlecchina: Mercy, how tiresome this attitude of Pantalone's is! Ready? Here I am!Pantalone: What a sight! Please, refresh yourself with this drink before starting your audition.Guard: Sir, you called for me? I was having a fine snooze when they told me there was a famous actress on Soundstage 5 and I came running...Pantalone: Guard! Curses, what are you doing here already? You usually show up an hour later! Get out of here!Arlecchina: Oh, my head is spinning, Sir... Who are you? Your moustache fascinates me... Your sideburns excite me.... I.... I feel myself trembling... I'm going to faint...Guardia: How beautiful she is, poor thing... Wait a minute--so you guys are making a Tarzan picture...? Awesome!Pantalone: Curses!ItalianPubblicità per Arlecchino e l'ordine della pietra filosofaleAlcuni spettatori reagiscono: Mi hanno sempre affascinato i film che parlano della magia...Mi sono piaciuti i tucani che gli portavano la posta.Mi ha affascinato il negozio dove Arlecchino ha comprato la bacchetta!Mi interessa molto quel treno che li ha portati a Verruchesuine...Alla mia ragazza hanno fatto schifo le scimmie, ma a me sono state simpatiche!Mi importa molto che un film comunichi un messaggio serio ai giovani.Mi è piaciuta moltissimo la serenata che quel ragazzo ha cantato sotto il mare! Come si chia--ah, Pulcinella! Ci è tanto simpatico quel Pulcinella!Mi sono piaciuti i ritratti che parlavano e si muovevano!Mi ha fatto paura il cappello che ha parlato quando Pulcinella se lo è messo sulla testa!Adesso abbiamo voglia di vedere il sequel!Mi ha commosso il coraggio di Colombina quando è andata da Kulala per trovare il sonno di Arlecchina!Ci ha emozionato molto la battaglia con i draghi!Mi sarebbero piaciute più esplosioni!Mi ha dato un po' fastidio l'accento dei texani...Ci ha fatto venire la pelle d'oca la macchina che volava!Ci ha deluso un po' la scena con i furetti parlanti...Mi è piaciuta molto la square dance dei Balanzone!A me è piaciuto il popcorn!EnglishAd for Arlecchino and the Order of the Philosopher's Stone Some movie-goers respond: Movies about magic have always fascinated me.I liked the toucans that brought them the mail.The store where Arlecchino bought the wand, I found it charming!The train that took them to Verruchesuine interests me a lot...The monkeys disgusted my girlfriend, but I liked them!It's important to me that a movie send a serious message to young people.I really liked the serenade that that guy sang under the sea! What's his na--ah, Pulcinella! We love that Pulcinella!I liked the portraits that talked and moved!The hat that talked when Pulcinella put it on his head scared me!Now we feel like seeing the sequel!I was moved by Colombina's courage when she went to Kulala to find Arlecchina's sleep!We were very excited about the battle with the dragons!I would have liked more explosions!I was annoyed a bit by the Texans' accent...The car that flew gave me goose-bumps!The scene with the talking ferrets disappointed us a little.I loved the Balanzones' square dance!I liked the popcorn!
