One last clue: it's an early '00s pop song.

Re: My invented language

duh Ah, a translation request! Tis unusual for a glossopoet to seek our help in translating their own invented languages, but, your know, sometimes the mind wanders and one forgets!

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I have a new undertaking with regards to Kankonian today. To find (and fill) gaps in the grammar and lexicon, I've decided to translate my Millennial rock musical The Bittersweet Generation (http://khemehekis.angelfire.com/bittersweetgen.pdf ) into Kankonian. My musical standing at 184 pages, this ...

The natural solution would be for one of us board members to make a new entry for "clongo" on Urban Dictionary. [:P]
Please no!

Re: What did you accomplish today?

I'm personally not a fan of the sound of the word "clongo" . . . I have never, ever heard anyone use "clongo" as a derogatory term for a woman. I've never heard anyone use it at all, actually. I agree with you as to gustibuses --- if anything the word "clongo" sounds even worse than "conlang"! As t...

Re: Some Snippets from The World

Ancestor Veneration Many peoples practice ancestor veneration of some sort or other. For some, ancestral voices prophesy war and strife. These are clearly disembodied spirits, perhaps what we think of as "ghosts", that have some quality of permanence and connexion with the physical world. Many peop...

I'm not really a fan of 99% of the modern pop music I hear on the radio but I just stumbled on Sơn Tùng M-TP by accident and I gotta say I really dig his songs!

Re: What did you accomplish today?

Launched a new blog where I review clongos. I don't see where you're actually "reviewing" all the hoary, slatty beaches that have ever wronged you over the course of your life. Unless I missed a key memo, a clongo (also klongo) is really a not very civil word for a maniser. Of course, manising (lik...

[<3] [<3] [<3] Wow! Thanks for the excellent suggestions! I think I will definitely be on the lookout for Nausicaa, Bone and Sandman. Today's foray netted Maus.

Re: How to start worldbuilding?

How do I start worldbuilding? Where do I go from there? Mgmg. Those are two very deep questions indeed! I think as you can see already from our replies that these questions can be seen as quite, well, useless if you take my meaning. It's like asking "How do I start my day?" and "What I do from ther...

Did you make the things in the material culture post yourself or where are they from? They look really cool. Oh, thanks for the compliment! I did indeed make the tools and books.

I think I have a pretty good excuse for why I wasn't able to pick them up in time. In the end, I'm just grateful I'll be able to get there before classes start. This is why I always plan to return to school on Saturdays, so I have Sundays open in case anything goes wrong. A conscientious student su...

Re: What are you listening to/watching?

Steeleye Span - Now We are Six (album) In case any of you have no idea who Steeleye Span are, they're basically English folk rock, and are a great interestingly different sound. They're actually still going in fact, which is impressive given that their heydays were the 70s. Thanks for these links! ...
