So yeah, it's been a while. Not that anyone are reading this, but maybe some day someone will.
The obligatory status update: At the moment I am engaged in a competition at FontStruct. My entry is here. The picture to the right is an example of it (and happy easter by the way).
Education-wise I reapplied for linguistics at University of Copenhagen. I recieved a letter today that they have recieved my application, so I am now destined to start studying linguistics in September this year - Hey, September may be when I write my next entry, seeing as it's been five months since the last one.
I still have that job at Tiger, which I am very fond of. And they seem to be fond of me; I have the responsibility for the DVD-section and my own set of keys to the store. And I am pretty much secured work there for the rest of my life. Great!
I have also bought some DVDs and CDs that I really like. In DVDs most notably "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World", which is an awesome movie. Go watch it if you haven't already. "The Linguists", a documentary about some field linguists who try to document some of the thousands of dying languages around the world. Makes my inner linguist cry a little. I also bought a DVD and two CDs from The Beards, if you remember them from an earlier post. They are really cool: their lyrics are all about beards and the advantage of having them. But they are great musicians as well. I saw them live once in Adelaide, where they warmed up for Tripod.
Remember the video-clip I promised you of my language. Well, don't expect it to ever be uploaded. Actually don't expect me to ever keep my promises. In fact I'll promise you right now to never promise you anything ever again.
I recently created an account over at DeviantArt, which is where I'll be uploading all my creative stuff from now on.
So I'll leave you with this bonus fun-fact: Giraffes were called 'camelopards' by the Romans, since they looked like camels with a leopards pattern. If you ask me that's a much cooler name. source: wikipedia
I'm out! I should probably find some way to attract readers to this blog...
