Fait du jour: δΊΊγŒε€šγ‘γ‚Œγ°ε€šγ„γ»γ©ζ₯½γ—い == "The more the merrier"

I'm learning how to say "the more X, the more Y", but in the Japanese construct, X is repeated twice, the first time in the weird "if" form, the second followed by "to the degree".

So that sentence literally reads like "if many people, to the point of many, happiness"... I guess? πŸ˜•

I almost liked my own post, I was scrolling through the federated timeline and was like β€œoh that is actually way more catered to some of my more obscure interests than usual for the fed timeline.” Yeah, because you posted it, dogg.

The cafe is boisterous and working for me as a reading venue. I can't concentrate when it's quiet.

It's just as well that I'm not sitting next to my boyfriend at the cafe.

This one sitting next to be is distracting enough πŸ˜…

@tootbrute Google says that last line is Maori πŸ€”

Apparently Happy Birthday in Portuguese is sung in duple meter.

Professor James Thompson introduces "Gathering of the Armies" from Lohengrin on the Eastman School of Music Live Stream from Rochester, New York.

Kodak is dead; I'm glad there are enough children with rich parents to make this possible.

There's nothing better that I can do for myself than make some music videos.

Even if they're not that good, it has to be more effective than trying to twist some publisher's arm…

@hellojed so far as getting people to play an unknown indie music track? More like 0.001%

I spend a lot of time auditioning indie music because I know the good stuff does not "rise to the top" - you have to dig for it.

Getting someone to look at an image is a lot easier. There's no time commitment.

I've never tried to sell anything.

But look at Hollywood marketing budgets - 30% for marketing is not unusual.

Advertising works, and there are more and cheaper means of it now than ever.

@hellojed even the number of people who will play a free track when linked to it - is not 1% in my experience, unless you're Taylor Swift or Justin Bieber.

I just wouldn't bet my career on that number. πŸ˜…

@prydt and now?
