Some stuff I've been working on

If anyone's interested, some stuff I've been doing for learnnavi.org:

YouTube - Avatar Trailer with Na'vi Subtitles
Na'vi Pronunciation Guide

and a ton of other things.

So, yeah, stuff. Not really interesting I'm sure but I figured if I'm going to not be posting anything Barney's Mind related I can at least show you what I've been doing with my time.

  3. Haha, no way!

    You're like an official Na'vi 101 instructor. Haha. Badass.

  4. I've had many people ask me to teach a regular class on Na'vi, lol.

    There's a lot of people who are a lot better than I am. Heck, I'm pretty sure prrton on there is fluent already.

  6. why not sub all the Barneys-mind serie with Na'vi?

    ReplyDelete
  7. That would be fun but it would just take way too damn long. Also, I'd definitely be missing some words for a lot of things.

  8. like douchebag, i don't think that exists in na'vi

  9. Yeah, you could use "moron" (skxawng) but that doesn't convey the same meaning.

    I do plan however to work some Na'vi into when Episode 1 when I re-do it.

  10. why not speak in Na'vi instead of english and re-doing all barneys-mind?....

    ReplyDelete
  11. Same problem as the comment before yours, with such a small vocabulary I could never do even a full episode.

    However, I could have fun and re-dub a small section in Na'vi. Would that be interesting to anyone at all?

  12. i think that would be cool but save it for avp cuase rember half-life1 takes plase in march 200x not 20xx sry

    ReplyDelete

  15. but ian you can still use it like say toobad forgin lagage class did not work out then say stuff in navi but it will brake canon if you say its navi cuase srroy if i spoiled the just trying to keep the mind serys still true to canon ps. i think how you ended barnys mind dose not conflic with canon

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yeah, I had acutally planned to make Na'vi joke in AvP since it's another James Cameron universe.

    ReplyDelete
  17. say ian feel free to do a navi joke in bm also in avp you could say being in colunal marines you have to lern 13 difrent langaes and then say somthing navi and any other lagauses

  18. WOW YOU ARE THE BIGGEST MOST PATHETIC NERD I HAVE EVER SEEN WITH THESE AVATAR POSTS. DUDE! You need a girlfriend or a new series or something.

    ReplyDelete
  19. lol, to that I say how is this any different than a jock who knows useless sports statistics such as the longest superbowl drive was 96 yards? It's not. It's just a way you continue your involvement with something you love.

    In any case though, what started as a simple bit of nerdy fandom has turned into a serious study of linguistics. I'm learning things about languages that would make my college English classmates run away screaming.

    That said though, sure it's nerdy. Do I care though? Not really, no. As far as series' goes though, yes, I shall be having a new one very soon.

  20. yo last anon dude that was rude crude and impolite

    ReplyDelete
  21. Yeah i know, sorry, i was kind of in a bad mood, but Ian acted VERY civilized about it, didnt expect that. kudos.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Well, I was tempted to flame you but I was (and still am) in such an extremely good mood since I just talked to Paul Frommer, the guy who invented Na'vi, over the phone. I also just finished a webcam interview with Good Morning America about learning Na'vi, AND I just went out and bought a new $500 paintball setup. So, yeah, feel free to say what you want, I'm a mental punching bag at the moment.

    That said though, it's a valid (if poorly worded) comment. What I'm doing is probably the nerdiest, most absurd thing I've ever done and I have no problem with that (at least I'm not painting myself blue and running around in the woods...)


    (...yet)

  23. WAIT! You get to be on TV?! WHEN?! WHERE?!

    WHOWHATWHYHOW?!

    And please don't do the blue woodland creature thing. That would be...far too much. *laugh* I'll tolerate an interpretive dance, however. *hysterics* XD

  24. If/when it airs I'll let you guys know. I may also be going down to NYC to do an in person interview.

    ReplyDelete
