Usual service is now resumed, remember to comment if this is the sort of thing you guys are still interested in, so I know to keep doing them, and let me know about new channels and cool films etc. These days I can't actually watch everything (which is great news) but I do try to at least take a look at lots of different things as I become aware of them

Alex Miller does a take off of the sound of music. Both sweet and funny https://youtu.be/115Ccz6DdpE

Evildea attempts a Swedish culinary delicacy with amusing results.

https://youtu.be/MalUgPA3nMU

So amusing that Chuck (Amuzulo) also posted a film about it from a slightly different perspective....including bits that Evildea edited out! Lol.

https://youtu.be/8_oWiPtyClU

Evildea's last day at JES sees him mostly replaced by a younger, more charming interviewer - who also has more hair. (Sorry Evildea, your days as the top esperanto youtubist are clearly numbered) https://youtu.be/OSc4GJ9HYgM

Then he gets to hang with Chuck and Charlotte. But be warned there is an out break of Alligators towards the end. (and what is Charlotte eating - flat oatcakes and condensed milk?) https://youtu.be/nysQDtoevv4

An African esperantist talks about her hopes https://youtu.be/12cNaCYTWOc

Esperanto variety show takes a minute pause from lernu kun logano and looks at the grammar points that Mazi raises https://youtu.be/slCLUDNHM3U

Lesson nine of lernu kun logano looks at fractions, the use of ad- and iĝ and a load of other stuff besides. https://youtu.be/r3MqOXULZb4

Airvian looks at active participles and complex verbs https://youtu.be/_FJqERIWq8Q

Language stuff tells about a reading competition called esperanto sumoo https://youtu.be/xGizscXG8-A

And finally this week i saw a russian lullaby translated into Esperanto which might be sweet for your kids to watch https://youtu.be/zSFxGDQtCoo

It's definitely not an easy book. I'm avoiding the temptation to look up each and every word that I don't know. I realized that even when reading books in English there are words I don't know, but don't bother looking them up in the dictionary. I find that I enjoy La Hobito more on days when I'm not stopping to look up words. I don't find that I've missed out on any information.

I am reading though it one page at a time and then the second time through writting down every word i don't know and my best guess, then looking them up and seeing ifni was close. It feels like active engagement if nothing else. Though the number of times i am likely to need the words for brass and tiled for example seem comparatively few, but you never know.

I dunno. You might get into Esperanto Steampunk. They use lots of brass. ;-)

Here's the one I'm reading from Amazon: https://goo.gl/RXOWDr

Here's another version, from Esperanto USA: https://goo.gl/n3Mlpg

From my understanding, both are good translations, although each translator had a different philosophy when translating, so they will read differently.
