well, if nothing else, i have learned from this that “tatu” is a band with two young, potentialy lesbian UK girls.. and that their website could use a serious redesign. Any Takers?

UK? They are Russian aren’t they?

When they sing in Russian they are much better imo. When I just gotta cheese it out, I listen to their songs.

They say the lesbian thing is just an act, or a marketing gimmick. I think it works on all the teenage boys of the world (or teenage boys at heart, doesn’t work on me of course… ahem)

bharper

yeah, maybe russian. i dont really know. so, maybe i have learned nothing. but, it does apear that they are playing the lesbian angle, if not true lesbians.. either way, its cool with me.. teen lesbians sure do sell…

RevDrLuv

In a way it makes more since for a Russian pop group to be on a chinese billboard. (That is china isn’t it?)

bharper

now your really gonna expose me.. i dont know if this is china.. i dont know if they are from russia..

but, yeah, i think this is china… i was looking for a billboard and this one looked amazing to me.. so i grabbed it… it could be in texas for all i care..

bharper

we should have a place on this site to post all original photo’s.. it might be interesting to see them sans design.

inman

That could get heavy hosting wise. Be grateful for what you have ;D

Anything starting with “lesbia” and ending with “n” is alright by me.

Krystman

yep, they are from russia.. You can actually hear their accent ^_^

The touch with the mouth is kinda creepy…..

bharper

yeah, the mouth, scary!

fashionvictim

Whoa, what’s going on with the mouth and eyes? That’s really disturbing and weird. So, what’s the idea behind it?

bharper

innman.. what kinda bogus hosting are u using? i am certainly greatfull, dont get me wrong.. but hosting is dirt cheap these days.. personally, i use phpwebhosting.com . they got unmetered storage/transfer/ etc.. evertything.. php, mysql everything.. for like, 9.95/month… .maybe thats not good.. i dunno. but i think it rocks..

Can anyone please explain what is going on in this conversation?? I really don’t get it.

glorymachine

I really dig the horizontal elements. It’s my sorta bag.

Krystman

I’m sorry, I just couldn’t resist g

fashonvictim - well, it’s a designologue about the Band Tatu and their Soung “All the things she said”. I hope it answers your questions ^_^

ouch, i have been stabbed by my very own conspirator.

fashionvictim

okay, so it’s actually about the song, cool, thanks.

bharper

truth hurts, doesn’t it?

the original idea that i had was to listen to the song and to be inspired by it, and respond to it muscly. however, this has turned into a battle of the bands, dsnlg style!

bharper

man, the worst thing of all of this.. is really the tatu website. these girls need a new webmaster. the html on their site was a flippin mess. a real shame. they must have enough cash to hire someone with a little skill.

Krystman

lol That last one was realy cool ^_^ And I have just the Answer… Anyway, I think we are loosing the original concept, maybe we should go back to the music. *g*

That is an excellent image Krystman, what’s does it have to do with the theme? I don’t get it.

Krystman

Heheh, I’m revealing Tatu’s TRUE secret Identity.. They are not from UK and they aren’t Russian either… THEY ARE ALIENS !!

bharper

yeah, i was thinking the same thing. nice image, but what does it have to do? and alien’s ?? i dont see that either..

are we looking at the same pic?

Krystman

Oooops, I forgot the Antennas doh

bharper

good work KRYST.. thanks for bringing it back to reality.

that was fun!

Krystman

I’ve also enjoyed this DSNLG. Thank you bharper, you did an excellent work as well. ^_^

I’m looking forward for other DSNLG with you

sanguine

cit·i·zen·ship    ( P )  Pronunciation Key  (st-zn-shp) n.

The status of a citizen with its attendant duties, rights, and privileges. —

check your spelling. it just makes your design seem … well, unintelligent because you didnt even spell check.

inman

No need to be a snob about sanguine. English isn’t everyone’s native language on DSNLG. It happens. I’d like to see you spell citizenship correctly in German ;D

Krystman

waaaarg, this is the moment when I whish I could post an Image again…

sanguine

i dont mean to be a snob about it. i just think this is the most serious and most aesthetically pleasing image in this dsnlg but… as soon as i saw it that jumped out at me. therefore, i cant take it seriously. i understand that hes not from the US, but im sure spell check still exists. since there are no re-uploads, its a good rule of thumb to check before you do so. it has to do with aethetics. would a client allow that to be a reason for a spelling error… that is all.

Krystman

Yeh, I know what you mean, saw that the other way aorund too. Looks just starnge.

Btw, no I own no english spellchecker.. no german either.. I mean, the only program which has such feature is a full-size word processor like Microsoft Word and I see no reason why I should screw up my whole system just for a spellchecker. I there some webbased spellchecker? I was often looking for one but could never find anything :(

RevDrLuv

See my news post at the home page. The site I link to is pretty good about finding the right spelling, and the definition is there so you can make sure it is what you really want to say. Hope it helps.

sanguine

also, you can always go to www.dictionary.com. if you dont spell the word right it will give you options of the correct spelling. hope that helps too.

fashionvictim

I’m not sure what programs you are using, but Illustrator and Photoshop both have spellchecks, also.

bharper

photoshop has spellcheck? had no clue… you can always run the word through a quick google search.. that’s what i do..
