    Who wants to join me in starting a MAJOR project?

    I am crazy and have been wanting to translate a certain show into Russian.

    For now, I would like to start smaller, with a show that does not involve a lot of singer.

    My Russian vocabulary/Grammar is pretty bad so I need lots of help.

    Someone (or a bunch of people) can work on the translation. I'll work on making sure the music and words flow, etc.

    If you are in on this, leave me a message.

    I am being serious about this.

    If you like the idea, as I said, message me, and I'll let you know the list of shows I would like to translate...

    Hello,

    I might be interested in your project if you told me a little bit more about

    it. If it's interesting I'll be glad to help you as much as I can.

    The use of stative verbs in the continuous form is an increasing trend in modern English.

    Personally, I'm not loving it, but that's the real world

    It means that someone is reaching for an explanation that is way out there, as in not very believeable. I think it comes from when someone would tell you to go very far for a throw of a ball, no, farther, farther, farther... that's way too far, come back. Just to make you run all that way and back.

    He knows what far fetched means. He was asking, what is it that is far fetched?

    Duh! Obviously it has not been fetched yet. That is why it is still far away.
