Iona-Sky's Esperanto language Youtube round up 22-28 Oct
22-28 Oct Esperanto youtube film round up ( what I watched)
First up is Jake H.
Jake H shows his love for Amazulu and then bolsters the idea that the world is obsessed with 'matters lavatorial' by showing us a game where you make virtual money when the creatures poop. At this point I lost interest so you will have to watch it yourself to see how it finished because I don't know. (somehow i doubt its family friendly) https://youtu.be/z3SUVI4TJD0
Jake H also gets photobombed (or is that video bombed ) by Mr Twostring himself....again. Is there a theme emerging here? https://youtu.be/kmKjZP-5Q3w
Alex Miller offers useful advice on typing Esperanto ( English audio and Esperanto subtitles for the most part ) https://youtu.be/Xclbmpt3Qns
He also speaks in english about homographs and homonyms...kind of interesting, if you are a language nerd ( and in this site who isn't?) but not, I think something that has mass appeal. https://youtu.be/aizD-_jDRaU
Esperanto Vblogo teaches the first lesson of a basic course in Poland, and ponders why attendance this year is much lower than previous years. Slow and steady kind of video without subtitles. Good for seeing if you can puzzle out what he is getting at. https://youtu.be/D-4heUh7qxs
Later in the week he also gives a plug to the Amikumu kickstarter, went to a concert and fed a cat ( esperanto bloggers often have cats) https://youtu.be/v2v3Bb2XZao
And encourages everyone to do their own Youtube channels (and plugs Mr Twostring - we are at it again guys) https://youtu.be/ayr-FHee8pc
Rajcx kaj esperanto offers up part one of a reworking of the sleeping beauty story ( family friendly thus far) https://youtu.be/DwVPdbPsWWo
Evildea goes to the Sydney Deaf festival. https://youtu.be/Gt442_wlv2Y
Later in the week Evildea talks about the esperanto and the economics ( or lack thereof) in the community https://youtu.be/BLA-J1AbupE
In language teacher mode Evildea looks at the afix 'an' https://youtu.be/cfx8JTo1qiQ
And then Evildea talks about the support of UEA for supporting Amimkumu and the perfidy of Duolingo launching the Spanish-Esperanto course while he was asleep. How dare they! Lol! https://youtu.be/pyKWwcAQ_DA
Airvian talks about his new job ( and some of the inner workings of an internet shopping emporium)
Mr Twostring gets his cake! https://youtu.be/KQaZ-iTZNHc
Finally my vote for something interesting I had not seen before even though its not a new upload is this children's fable with audio and subtitles https://youtu.be/MnrFmMibrEw
Vanege - Thanks for the heads up - I just searched for your channel and found it, i will definitely be looking at it next week and commenting on what i watch!
Mi ĉiam spektas viajn filmetojn kaj volas danki vin. Dankon, dankon, dankon amiko mia! G
The channel name, of course, is MrTwostring because it was founded by my alter-ego "Tommy Twostring." I certainly don't mind being called MrTwostring - but Tomaso or Salivanto is fine.
Personally, I think it's been a very good week - with shout-outs from Zibi and Jake - and also getting my daughter to agree to be in a video. Oh yes, and cake.
Thanks for putting this together, Ionasky.
My daughter watched your daughter speaking Esperanto with you and her face flushed a bit when she realized other girls her age speak it too. Boy how my chest popped out with the, "..and I told you so..", type of style. She hates me now...because secretly she loves Esperanto. Thanks for the opportunity!..G.
Hi Ionasky, I was reading down your list ( thanks for this, by the way) and almost at the bottom I see the Spanish Esperanto course casually mentioned. I also learned a new word, perfidy.
I am very excited for the opportunity to practice Esperanto and Spanish at the same time. I am curious what your thoughts are so far, or anyone's thoughts so far? My Esperanto is very rusty, but the course is more challenging than I expected it to be in the early skills.
Everyone seems pretty low key about it, I expected the normal three or four posts in the main forum, just like there is when any new languages is released.
I am finding that my esperanto is up to the task so far , my spanish, not so much. Lol
Yes its pretty slow going, I can usually understand what the sentence says, Then I type it in Spanish, then it tells me I'm wrong, usually a definite article that I didn't realize should or should not be there or simply forgot to pluralize. So I write down what they want, to try and get it in my brain, then when it comes up again I see if I can get it right. It's actually quite frustrating, but I can't seem to stop.
Duolingo addiction, a modern phenomenon! ( i have a pretty bad case myself!)
