Is the wording of this Daft Punk article familiar to anybody?

1. They are world-famous stars whom the world does not know.
Following the release of their debut album ‘Homework’ (1997) Thomas Bangalter (*1975) and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo (*1974) no longer allow themselves to be photographed without masks on. This is because they find the ‘star system’ ridiculous and it is part of the concept of Daft Punk “to keep us more low-profile than the music”
[TRANSLATOR’S NOTE: actual quote in English]. Later on, they would not even need the masks any more, because they’d turned into robots.

This is from page 18 of a German music magazine (Musikexpress) with the title ‘11 Fakten über Daft Punk/11 Facts About Daft Punk’. (I don’t know the date but it’s definitely post-2005 ;_;)
I began translating a bit of it for fun, but I’m not sure if someone has done it? It really does sound like something people have long since translated and became common knowledge and I just didn’t know about and can’t find any translations of because I am derp. The above is factoid 1, and it’s a really quick and unpolished translation, but I’m hoping that the content and some aspects of the formatting are familiar enough to recognize.

Please tell me if someone’s done this already!

Trying out a new style [Snippet - Beata Beatrix]

Amongst the countless projects I’m attempting to juggle right now is an experiment both in style and content. It’s very AU, fairly down to earth, and only Guy features majorly in it.

Context of this snippet: a narrator of undefined age/gender/(nationality)/etc working as an employee at Tate Britain, London (where the titular painting is) meets Guy for the first time, and they talk about how liberal arts aren’t valued nowadays while I demonstrate a new writing style.

——————————

Then he raised his face. He was scowling, he let me see how angry he was, and that his anger was directed now at me. He’d clearly been having a long train of arguments in his mind beforehand, so what he expressed was more of a small cameo in a larger conflict. He shook his head, and exclaimed out loud: You were led astray, then!
I beg your pardon?
You were led astray - like a child lost and distracted in the woods - at your age and still a mere child!

I didn’t know whether to find this offensive or not, so I only nodded. While I was not physically a child, I had no doubts that I was occasionally foolish like one. Whatever life choice I’d talked about might have seemed like that to him, which wouldn’t have been too surprising considering his age.

But you don’t see it that way, do you, he continued to accuse, glaring at me. You think you… you made an autonomous choice, a grown-up, sensible choice, fooling yourself into thinking that this was the best thing for you and everyone else…
I find that unfair, Guy, I at least managed to stay in my area of preference. It’s not like I went straight to being a banker or something from a graphics designing course because I thought the arts wouldn’t sell. That’s not my concern and it never has been. I might not be an artist or writer, but I love art, know plenty about it, and I am happy to work with it here.
But you still gave up what you’d worked so hard for.
Well, yes.
Then it’s done you no good at all!

lilgaaby asked:

Kimbk. I'm in a dilemma. My sister is convinced that writing fanfiction is doing hypersexualisation , and it's just bad for the image of women . I have arguments but don't know how to formulate them. What do you think of it ?

lilgaaby:

So. My mom and my sister were there , I told her I wrote fictions. My sister exploded and said that if people kept writing things like fifty shade of gray were the girls are used as an object we won’t get rid of this society problem that is like you know putting pressure on woman , with hypersexualisation issues.  I said  my fiction were more romantic ; that I tried to write a story in english , though my english sucks ! She said : well then , let me read it. Then I blushed and said that she might don’t like the YAOI style ( basically because of Daft Punk are two guys and well… you know . ) She looked at me and said that if she can’t read it well it was the answer that yes it was hypersexualisation. 

Now. Can we write something that yes have explicit content and yet still , doing better than fiftly shade of grey ? I always write inspired not on sex or anything like that but on the freedom in art , journalism , sociology , on philosophy ( I try as much as I can )  , I try to use cultural references to art , to litterature , and I try to use also intertextuality. And I just want to know… is it possible for main culture ; like fanfiction , to be more…deep and more intellectual to what my sister , who just have fifty shade of grey as a reference for non safe for work texts and litterature , calls bad for society and for woman and for hypersexualisation  ? 

I have a critical mind . But I need help  , like Descartes with his community of research. 

J’ai juste besoin d’aide . Je connaît très bien le problème avec la culture de masse. Je sais car je la critique chaque jour. Je ne comprends pas pourquoi cependant , on ne pourrait pas tirer des bénéfices de cette cutlure de masse en l’emmenant vers un niveau plus intellectuel. Je sais que la culture de masse , comme Fiftly Shade of Gray est nuisible . Mais ne serait-ce pas Fifty Shade of Gray dans le tort puisque cette ouvrage est la seule référence dans la culture populaire . 

I mean that isn’t FiftY Shade of Gray who is a bad interpretation of what NSFW content can be like ? Or is it NSFW content that have a bad influence on society ? 

First of all, lilgaaby, my apologies for the lateness: trying to juggle many things here, myself, and I wanted to cover all bases. This is the broadest answer I can give with the context above, while not trying to infringe into any personal context that I have no business knowing about.

I think this is a ‘your sister is being illogical and has poor references’ problem, rather than a ‘fanfiction/nsfw fiction = hypersexualistion’ problem. This seems like an argument that’s so far off the right-wrong binary that it’s not even wrong, under the premises used.
