What are you listening to/watching?

What can I say? It doesn't fit above, put it here. Also the location of board rules/info.

With a name like Ewa, what else would she be?

Na'vi?
What does it say about me that I thought of "Avatar" first?
It says that you have good taste in conworlds! And probably conlangs, too -- speak any Na'vi?

I believe there are many other Eastern and Central European possibilities.

Isn't Polish the only Balto-Slavic language that spells /v/ with a W, though?

By the way Ewa of Worldbuilding Notes narrated her first two YouTube videos in Lojban. She sounds quite fluent to me, but her native language appears to be Polish.
Give us a link! I've never heard Lojban yspoke before. I've heard plenty of Esperanto, from the famous movie to their (un)national anthem. Though that's obviously sung.

Interesting. You're right she does sound quite proficient. Not my favourite sound profile in a language, though.

I don’t really have an esthetic for the phonology of any of my conlangs.
What comes closest is probably my desire that listeners know for sure what speakers say.
And since I don’t really know how to achieve that, that’s kind of vague, unless I figure it out better.

I’ve never heard a natlang that I thought sounds bad; nor an IRL dialect of one (excluding some jargon, some cant, and some slang — maybe — but not even all of that!).
Very few conlangs sound ugly to me either; even the ones deliberately designed to sound ugly often don’t to me sound as ugly as I think the creators intended.
