Their website vectortours.de is one of the most confusing I’ve ever seen. A German domain with a weird mixture of Albanian and German text. Most of the phone numbers don’t work, and when I tried calling the German number and asked in German about their lines from Macedonia to Montenegro, they were dumbfounded and had no idea what I was talking about. Some of the ticket desks in Skopje firmly denied the existence of the company, until we eventually found one who gave us a ticket. Then, by chance, we ended up staying in a hostel in Prizren which was literally next door to the Vector Tours office, which was adorned with three completely different logos! I think some other weird stuff happened which I forgot, but in total this was enough to cement them as a semi-legendary entity and permanent in-joke.
and here’s @briansuda’s translated hieroglyph version! https://optional.is/required/2009/12/03/welcome-the-entire-land/
@BurntToast_DFIR fantastic, thanks! Any idea where I can get a copy of the CD?
EDIT: I found it, the website is a bit labyrinthine.
@briansuda what on earth is “Gender: Weak Female”?!
@edwardrandell glad you found it useful! I got stuck on some of them and found the lyrics elsewhere but wanted to have them all in one place. I'd love a copy of the notation if you'd be willing to send it to me! Might be worth transcribing to ABC and adding to the lyrics page as a complete reference
@HeNeArXn Rathaus Schöneberg, last Sunday. I’d not been before but it seems like a good market for old electronic junk! There were a bunch of cassette recorders and a really cool old film projector too.
@julian0liver I believe the verb is “klugscheißen” https://en.pons.com/translate/german-english/klugschei%C3%9Fen I have extensive experience with this as well!
@rhiaro so TOS picks up after a while then? TNG was my first trek and I love it, but have never been able to get into TOS. The first few episodes just seem so weird, sexist and disjointed
@benwerd 2017 was pretty rough though tbh
