Idling...

Yes, my brain has been idling lately. Well, my intimate brain at least, because work is far, far away from anything idle. I don't know why, but I just don't feel any push to do anything substantial. I've got a few "projects" on my hands, but this transition from summer to autumn just doesn't seem to be the right time to deal with them. A photobook and completition completion (courtesy of Darina tilia_tomentosa) of "make stuff meme" till the end of the year are just two of them. I'll get around them.

Looks like idle time is also purge time. I cleaned my friends list on LJ a bit and I think I will cut it down even more. I plan to deal only with "alive" part of it, so that I will really be able to be a good virtual pal to people on it. :) Oh, I got a notification that one of YouTube users subscribed to my videos on there - I am keeping mostly LJ Slovenian lessons there. And I logged onto YouTube and I was pleasantly surprised that those lessons are actually alive. View count numbers made me happy - language lessons have from 250 to more that 1500 views, even Got It Good - YouTube version made it almost to 700. So I checked Vimeo, too - HD Versions of Got It Good and Summer09 are there. The first got almost 200 and the second one almost 180 views. I was happy to discover that.

So I need to prepare more Slovene for LiveJournal and more shots and music. See? More projects to keep my weird mind busy. And in case I haven't force-fucked you enough... Here are Got It Good and Summer09, both really special to me.

Yes, I was doing it for kicks. And I think it's time to start them again. Any ideas about what silly idea should I use this time? :)

Hrm ... words/phrases attached to going out?

"Do you want a drink?"
"No more for you -- you're drunk!"
"I'm gonna be sick."
"I think I'll call you a cab!"

A Beer Sequel would be great. Maybe the "rejection" edition?

"You're not my type."
"I'm here with my boyfriend!"
"What part of 'go away' do you not understand??"

:: laugh :: I think the coolest thing, would be Slovene turns of phrase -- idioms that you can't translate literally but are used all the time in Slovenia.

Now is "completition" a combination of "completion" and "competition"? :P

I haven't got tired of Got It Good yet. :)

Where are the people screaming "Don't unfriend me?" LOL

I enjoyed the hell out of the language lessons. I'm glad they're finding an audience.

I'm some of those number counts. I've seen both of those videos several times I've enjoyed them so much. Even shown them to friends.
And I can't wait for more language lessons.

Maybe someday I'll actually get a chance to order an "oohn-yohn" beer in a bar in Ljubljana.

Oh, I am glad you like them. :) And when you come to Ljubljana, you can be quite sure you'll have a friendy and dedicated guide to show you around. :)
