Re: The Sixth Conversation Thread

My parents are insufferable. Literal denialists in the midst of a pandemic and calling me an idiot millennial for actually listening to medical experts who know what they're talking about. Nothing but "why can't we believe what we want to believe" and "well, it's not literally killing me this insta...

Re: What are you listening to/watching?

Welp, too much Queen music.
I bought Kind of Magic (the digitally remastered version) on LP and Innuendo on CD last summer in Poland, and for Christmas I bought Made in Heaven (digitally remastered LP) and A Night at the Opera (CD, because it was cheaper).

Re: Rumhängethread [Deutsch]

So, nach knapp einem Jahr Inaktivität schmeiße ich mal was in den Rumhängethread. Was gibt's Neues? Naja, es gibt zumindest etwas Altes: Ich habe seit einiger Zeit einen etwas älteren Rechner bei mir stehen, den ich wieder zum Laufen bringen möchte.

Well, scitte.
Good thing the Wayback Machine exists, I think I left one or two ideas perish.

Re: What have you been reading lately? (non-linguistic ed.)

The Changeling Series by Steve Feasey (2009 +). Got hooked on the first volume (German translation I grabbed from my local library) and now I'm reading the other volumes in English – accents included. Additional info: It's contemporary/urban fantasy, featuring werewolves, vampires, angels, and othe...

Come back to conlanging and conworlding if you have the energy and time to do so. [:)]

Re: West Saxon Grammar Sketch v 0.0.1

I'm definitely subscribing. I saw an older version of this on the ZBB and directly took some inspiration from it for my own Wínlandisch [ˈwæɪ̯nˌlandɪʃ] (Gothic -> “West Saxon” -> “English”), but I'm stuck in between Old and Middle Wínlandisch and didn't pick it back up since 2015 or so… Anyways, I'd...

Re: Weird Dream Thread

I dreamt that I played a game very similar to Sim City 3000 – what differed was that I could add extras (central heating for a few Simoleons, for example) to the buildings, which would improve the quality of life for my Sims.
Should I go to EA with this dream-derived idea?

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Aided by a creative outburst while I was listening to some music, I drew the (near-)perfect picture for my Conlang Cards this year.
The only thing I have to do is to exchange some buildings and add some text (and re-draw it in ink).
