little brown bird

Icon set: mixed media (tv with a few movies at the end)

A very low key birthday for my sweetie notarysojac- - that was because we had dinner and presents over the weekend to take advantage of him having Monday off. He is about hip deep in manga and anime.

And tomorrow (well, that's actually today I guess - this evening anyway) Chris will be joining us for a video and dinner from our brand new Japanese restaurant which promises to deliver "salubrious food" even to those of us in the hinterlands. We'll see...


Continuing the icon dumping, this set is a mixed bunch from tv and movies - mostly from games that have folded their tents and disappeared now (alas for cult movie icons!)

words have power

my dead language

I find this result particularly amusing because back in my 20's, when I traveled in SF Fandom circles, I had a friend whose post grad studies were in dead languages. One night to amuse him, I postulated a cultural event where a rink could be filled with clay, and then dancers wearing triangle shaped shoes would come out and perform on the surface, after which it would be projected onto some sort of large screen (diamondvision) and he would come out and read it to us. Then, the language zamboni would clear the surface and Act II would begin.


Your Score: Akkadian


You are Akkadian, a blend of the incomprehensible symbols of the Sumerians with the unwritable sounds of the early Semitic peoples. However, the writing just doesn't suit the words and doesn't represent everything needed, so you end up a schizoid mess. Invented in Babylon, you're probably to blame for that tower story. However, crazy as you are, you're much loved and appreciated, and remain actively in use by records keepers long after schools have switched to other languages.
