    AHH Menya kolbasit!

    I had an extremly nice freind buy the new Русский размер CD and send it to me in the mail! i have a few questions about the names of some songs.

    Первый. The name of the CD and first song, is called "Меня колбасит"
    I can't find this anywhere, what does it mean in english?

    Второй. another song is called Я чувствую бит. i don't really get this either. i know the words, but it doesn't comprehend.

    третий. the last song is called "Летят по проводам". does this really mean "They fly on wires" ? i read it and that didn't really make sense either... is this about a circus mabye? does anyone know?

    Thanks!
    Вот это да, я так люблю себя. И сегодня я люблю себя, ещё больше чем вчера, а завтра я буду любить себя to ещё больше чем сегодня. Тем что происходит,я вполне доволен!

    Что-то вроде cold turkey, отходняк у наркоманов.

    А если так? "Я чувствую beat".
    третий. the last song is called "Летят по проводам". does this really mean "They fly on wires" ? i read it and that didn't really make sense either... is this about a circus mabye? does anyone know?
    "По проводам" в русском языке могут "лететь" только какие-нибудь электрические сигналы или импульсы, значит "Летят по проводам" - "they are transmitting (very fast) by wires."

    As far as I know, that was the original meaning. Now it can mean "I'm very agitated", for good or bad. It can also mean some extremely consuming activity, like "пойдём поколбасимся в клубе", which means dancing like crazy, often combined with taking some drugs. I once saw it mentioned about a university student who was given a difficult task for homework, and was struggling with it. Overall, that word can mean pretty much anything, depending on context.

    yea i asked a few people today. i mostly got "i'm pissed off" (и в песне, он звучит как "pist off"). but i also did get the "drugs" defintion too. so, it just adds to the list of Мне надоело, and Я заколибол(spelling). зачем русский язык так очень сложный ?

    I'm afraid you may have misunderstood. "Мне надоело" means "I'm sick of/with/for...", "I'm tired...", "I can't get [it] anymore", etc. "Меня заколебало/-л/-ла/-ли" means pretty much the same but more emotionally; in fact I believe that is a "beautified" form of a very similarly sounding phrase (only one syllable is different) that uses some obscene words, and that one is the most emotional way to express the idea. "Меня колбасит" is different, it can mean a lot more, but it invariably expresses very strong intensity of whatever is happening. You could define it as “experience very strong something”. One does not have to be pissed off. You could say: "вчера в кайф поколбасились на коцерте Русского Размера".

    As for the complications, don't forget that you're dealing with slang here. Slang is invented to obscure things. It can change very rapidly too, shifting the meaning or broadening it.

    BTW. is there any difrence between Словно, как, and будтo ? obviously как is the most widely used. but they all mean "as, as if, like"

    "Словно" is a bit "eloquent". "Будто" и "как будто" are normally used in subjunctive mood and are functionally equivalent to "as if". Then there are "вроде" and "типа", which are similar to "like" and "kind of". Funnily, the similarity extends to the way "like" and "kind of" are used as an interjection in "uneducated" English speech: "so, like, we went, like, to her kinda place, like". "Ну, типа, мы вроде пошли, типа, к ней, вроде как."
