Just managed to read this (blast modern websites!), and wow. That. is. weird. So weird it makes me seem normal! But I got rather distracted by the though if how awesome it would be to construct a language and sing epic songs in it! In my dream world I'm a linguist actress recording-artist... the first didn't realize because I didn't go to college, the second hasn't realized for lack of opportunity, the third for lack of reasonably decent recording equipment and of more-than-rudimentary musical-instrument ability. But I haven't given up hope, and even if none of that ever happens, I'd rather dream and fail than never have dreamed at all... Hey, maybe all I need is training in psychonetics! I here that helps all sorts of things! I know a little Russian, maybe they'll let me in on the secret :-P. -Christa Verbing AWESOMES language! -----Original message----- From: David Peterson <[log in to unmask]> To: [log in to unmask] Sent: Thu, May 5, 2016 08:02:27 GMT+00:00 Subject: Re: LCS has filed an amicus brief in Paramount v Axanar Ooh, if you haven’t read this article (or otherwise heard the story from John), you should read this whole thing.
