I read his Fool Wolf fantasy series several years ago. Very good and a unique setting.

I cannot hear or read the words guten tag without thinking of ooter(sp) from the Simpsons. Can't help but wonder what German folk think of the character, or what Australians think of the episode roasting them thoroughly.

Wow. Hadn't checked my total for a while. I'm over 30K.

The whole WotC decision to scrub the boards was terrible IMHO. I hope that never happens here. I would likely immediately terminate my subscriptions and go sulk for a year.

They did the same thing over at the BioWare forums too.

I had some great stuff over on the WotC forums. :( I won 3rd place in a Drunk DM contest, had extended discussions about art for 4th edition that I was sad to lose.

The Japanese stereotype is everyone in North and South America has blond hair and blue eyes and speaks English. The first English textbook features Paulo from Brazil. He has blond hair and blue eyes and teaches English. I got so sick of everyone saying I was blond that I literally taught a class that consisted of me holding up magazine photographs and demanding to know what color the subjects' hair was from the students - and correcting it forcefully.

...

Looking back, the stuff that drove me nuts was really not always very important.

Huh.

American shows tend to get Aussie accents pretty wrong. They either sound British or more ocker than you ever hear people speak ... until you go to some small remote town and realise, wow, some of us really do sound like that.

The funny thing is that sometimes you'll have a genuine Australian actor on an American TV show speaking in their Aussie accent - and it still sounds wrong to our (Australian) ears, even though that is presumably their actual accent. I don't know if its just that the contrast is jarring, or if the Australian actors tend to ham up their accent to what they think Americans expect them to sound like.

Well, it looks now as if I will be delayed until September. I'm not terribly upset by this. And as the saying goes, don't count your chickens until they're hatched. Until I get the green light I'm not assuming I've got it.

As for accents, we Bostonians get that a lot too. Granted it can be very thick in some folks, As in the infamous 'baby whale' video, but those guys are the far end of the scale.

Hollywood usually hams it up for effect when they are doing a 'baaahston' accent.

An old PBS radio call-in show.


Oh! Car Talk!

I used their website to find my car repair guy in Houston when I moved here in 2008. :) We loved that show too!

There's a different show, the Car Pro show, tht is about the purchase of cars, not mechanical issues, but it's also amusing.

I might be a talk radio junkie.

Hanging out with Doodlebug, NH style


And my PayPal is again almost empty...

*shakes fist at GOG!*


Instead I have another game... Tyranny was at 60% off...


One game finished, uninstalled, another being installed...


Maybe I should make myself some dinner?


Not a big choice - pork with rice or pork with rice. Or I could merely make a more or less instant soup with noodles.


Meh, I am going to sleep instead.

Unfortunately, the stereotypical accent for my current area is disconcertingly prevalent.


Does everybody talk for several minutes without breathing, too?

Yes. In the rare moments when no one is talking, the heavy breathing is very noticeable.

For reference

Speaking of languages, an exchange that struck me from a short series of YouTube comments on a video of an interview with a musician from Belgium:

OP: "If only this was in English. [band] has been one of my favorites for 15 years."
Response: "Yeah, it's in Dutch (my language), [band] is also one of my favourite bands too. Where are you from?"
OP: "I'm from Norway! [band] is a truly great band that I always go back to."

A fitting finale to my career as a solo musician: the singer from one of my favorite bands (who plays bass in a band that I co-formed) wearing my artist merch in a promo photo for the musical he's starring in.
