let it go

Okay, let’s start with the most serious mistakes: Grammatical mistakes. First, missing articles: > a1. .aunai snime cu carvi le cmana Not grammatical. “snime” is probably missing a “lo” or “loi”. > a5. .i tcima cu simsa le mi menli sevzi “tcima” without article … > b5. .i cusku na selxanka mi again, no article for “cusku” Remember: All sumti have to have an article. Different grammatical failures: > a2. .i vi claxu lo pluta > Here there is no path. “vi” expects a sumti after it to indicate the location. I am not sure with this one: > c0. .i benji lo mi vlipa lo loldi fu ti > My power is transfered to the ground via this. Careful! “lo se vlipa be mi” or, condensed “lo selvli be mi” (“The power of me”) Poor tanru: > c9. .i curmi snime > The permitted snow. Nope. > d2. .i lo pa bisli spoja pensi cu dunja > One frozen exploding thought congeals. “lo pensi” refers to the thinker, not the thought.

“lo terpa” is the fearer, “lo se terpa” is the fear. From the rubaiyat. A tanka by saigyo. Lojban palindromes. From Lojban fatmi'u lerpoi .u'e jimsmi je'u (palindrome: "(Wonder!)

the hexadecimalist heresy

A curious episode in the recent history of Lojban was the Hexadecimalist Heresy. A certain Lojbanist, observing that Lojban had single-syllable words for numbers up to fifteen, maintained that the default number base of Lojban must be Base-16 (i.e. counting ...8, 9, A=10, B=11, C=12, D=13, E=14, F=15, "10"=16 in conventional notation). This created an immense & vituperative controversy, only ending when the arch-hexidecimalist withdrew from the community. Lojban remains default-decimal today, but in the imaginary city of Lojbanistan called "La Xagvar", where nonconforming Lojbanists are said to congregate, it is still the customary greeting to ask, "What base do you count in? " Zbalermorna. The bumper sticker. A lojban rap album. Released June 21, 2015 With its 16 original tracks and its unique Lojban lyrics, ZA'O, the first Lojban album of all time, ventures to explore the many possibilities of Lojban rap music -- previously largely uncharted territory.

The themes on this album range from despair to hope, from depression to joy, from anxiety and fear to the one true love. And it's all real. One track even features a verse written in Toki Pona, a little something from me for the Toki Pona fans out there. This also makes it the first rap record ever to feature Toki Pona lyrics (if you haven't guessed, the track is NASA).

I'm no professional - obviously. It's too early to talk about it, but with enough of your support I might make another album at some point. Lastly, I'd like to thank everyone who encouraged me to make this album. A tanka by shunzei. 2 new translations. (vamana, via ancient ufo dot org) "97.

To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,-- One clover, and a bee, And revery. The revery alone will do If bees are few. " Emily Dickinson ('The act-of-creating a grass-field if-&-only-if there exists/ at-least-one fourfold/ flowering-plant, at-least-one bee,// & at-least-one state-of conscious-dreaming./ The latter suffices under-the-conditions-of beelessness.') "It's a curse, the writing impulse, if it gets you early, and if it doesn't get you early it isn't a writing impulse.

" My good friend the Rose It’s little enough to win And my good friend the Rose This morning said to me With sunrise I was born To baptize in its tears I followed into bloom Knew joy & love’s delight In the full rays of the sun Then twilight made me close At dusk my time was done Awhile I was so fair Among the rest most fair Of those the garden grew A day ago we loved And I will taste its dust Forevermore & soon.
