Just to Clear Things Up

Postby Obscurus Lupa » Sat Oct 16, 2010 7:55 pm

My name means Dark She-Wolf, guys. It's terrible latin, but there ya go. I've never said I review obscure films, my name has nothing to do with what I review. I even said in The Room review that my only criteria is that it's laughably bad.


So...if I review something that is actually well known or you've heard of it, it's okay. Really.

Miss She-Wolf, I assure you that you can review anything you see fit to, and I'll go along with it happily. Just as surely as the Nostalgia Critic can review things that are not nostalgic, Linkara can review something other than a comic book, and Spoony can review...Highlander 2: The Quickening, you can review the laughably bad thing of your choice. And God bless you for it.

Rendered curious by Lupa's self-professedly terrible Latin, I looked up "Obscurus" and "Lupa" on Wikipedia and Google.

Googling "Obscurus" led me to a Harry Potter fanfic archive and one particularly foreboding site, http://www.obscurus.org. Searching for Obscurus on Wikipedia just led me to the Obscurus Lupa section of the That Guy With the Glasses page. I gave up and looked for an online translator. According to http://www.translation-guide.com, Obscurus means "darkness" in Latin.

Googling Lupa took me straight to a wiki page, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lupa.
Lupa (Latin for “she-wolf”; plural: Lupae) can refer to:
-A female wolf.
-The Greek goddess Artemis, in her “wolf form”; see the story of Romulus and Remus.
-The lowest class of Roman prostitutes (ouch).
-Lupa, a genus of swimming crabs.

You were nearly very wonderful, Lupa: if you contract "darkness" into "dark" and ignore all of the other possible meanings of Lupa then it's perfect!
This statement is false.

"Lupa obscura"?
"Obscurus" is an adjective, it seems your online translator sucks)) In just needs to be put in right form.

I'm not surprised. The translation site I used looks like it's straight out of the nineties and my Latin is probably far worse than Lupa's. Meus erroris.
