And I'll dance with you in Vienna,
I'll be wearing a river's disguise;
The hyacinth wild on my shoulder,
My mouth on the dew of your thigh...

I remember a discussion about Warhammer a while back (some years now, I think) where the hobby was disparaged pretty strongly... naturally, I've taken it back up! :D

Very impressed by all the creativity since my 66th birthday (2/6/18) and maybe b4 as well!
I just realized this means your sixtieth birthday was the day my laptop was stolen. [O.O]

Now, if eldin raigmore got a laptop for his 60th birthday, that would be really suspicious.

Next song on my album: Vestige overlook. (Genre: Soundtrack)

Youtube: Vestige overlook
Soundcloud: Vestige overlook
"There was once a grand structure up ahead. It could be a stadium for the great race, or a rocket launch station, on cliffheights above the shelter of boats whirling. But it's not there any more. You are standing at the edge, at the vestige overlook."

Do you mean she is four feet tall?
Or that, in addition to four (I assume?) wings and two hands, she has four feet?
You didn’t draw enough of her from the hips down to be certain, but it doesn’t look like she has the hips for four legs.

So I’m guessing you meant her height is about 121.9 cm.

Have I guessed right?

Anyway; she looks nice!

four footed butterifles in real life have only 2 promeiment legs. the thrid pair is covered up. this transaltes to her only have 1 pair of arms while other subraces have 2 pairs of arms.

Thanks! I did not know that!

(BTW <thrid> is a very old-fashioned spelling.)

Considering Fruityloops also wrote "butterifles" and "transaltes", I'm pretty sure it was probably just another transposal.

Like Khemehekis says, it was accompanied by other obvious errors, so I sure fruityloops didn’t do it on purpose.
But, still, the /r/ has moved in English in some words.
“Horse” used to be “hros”; so we have the name “Ross” and it’s no longer obvious it has anything to do with horses.
“Third” used to be “thrid”, which is much more obviously related to “three”.
And “bird” used to be “brid”.

In Town Speech-Plattdytch, the word for "horse" is pronounced /ɹɔs/ and is a cognate of English horse.

Really? I always thought Ross came from the Scottish surname Ross, which in turn came from a word meaning "red" (cognate with Italian Rosso and Russo).

According to Wiktionary, the name "Ross" comes from a Scottish Gaelic word meaning "headland".

I wrote a new song for The Bittersweet Generation for the first time since 2009!

"Zymurgy"
by James Landau (C) 2018

TRINA
I’ll pour some beer for Melanie, pour some beer for Bryce
At 20, Japanese kids could have a beer on ice
Or they could ferment a sake from saka mai rice
Steam that rice, baby

In Paris and across France, parents give their children wine
With their dinner of baguettes, starting when they’re 8 or 9
And the kids, or most of them at least, turn out fine
Crush those grapes, baby

Fill your gastric holes up with tumblers or snifters
Fill your souls up with brewed-up spirit-lifters
A Mass for the masses, and wine for the clergy
Raise your glasses to oenology . . . and zymurgy

At Oxford, English students may ask for cakes and ale
They may have it during test time, and it doesn’t make them fail
They can drink it in the uni, and they will not go to gaol
Kiln those hops, baby

Jewish boys get real wine as soon as they’re 13
When they’ve gotten their bar mitzvahs, onto Seder wine they’re weaned
It’s as all-Israeli as challah bread and beans
Brew that yeast, baby

Fill your gastric holes up with tumblers or snifters
Fill your souls up with brewed-up spirit-lifters
A Mass for the masses, and wine for the clergy
Raise your glasses to oenology . . . and zymurgy

Dreamy Inca girls chewed corn so all those Inca boys
Could have the mash they spat out with a noise that annoys
If you think to spit’s not ladylike, just see them, they weren’t coy
Chew that maize, baby

Liesl Von Trapp tried to stay to taste her first champagne
Offered food and wine by eager young lads all in vain
In Austria, they drink at 16, suffrage has been gained
Let it fizz, baby

Fill your gastric holes up with tumblers or snifters
Fill your souls up with brewed-up spirit-lifters
A Mass for the masses, and wine for the clergy
Raise your glasses to oenology . . . and zymurgy

A Mass for the masses, and wine for the clergy
Raise your glasses to oenology . . . and zymurgy
