Haha just saw that Frozen 2's premiering here or something.
I promise I'm not paid by Disney. We are not paying them, either ☠️

Youngest's choice on night so it's Frozen. And being honest, the only thing I dislike about it is the character design, Elsa and Anna look like Barbie dolls. (I *really* dislike that.)
Let It Go is a legitimate banger. And, as you do, I was wondering what it would sound like if the angst and rejection of the world were given the treatment. Nothing new under the sun, apparently this was even a thing on X Factor or whatever but now I'm at risk of spending my Friday rating death metal covers of Let It Go. This one blows it at the chorus, for example:

@AngharadHafod and @davidoclubb
I have a few questions about using Welsh, if you don't mind answering some.

When it comes to radio etc, what is there to read/listen/watch?
I know there's nation.cymru irregularly has articles in Welsh and that S4C exists too. I know very little else, to my shame.

Guess I'm trying to ask, how is Cymraeg-based culture kept current?

Feel free to tag people in who may be able to help add to this

I liked this from the LRB on in isolation.
"Because it isn’t the same at all, singing by yourself to a recording, or a click track, or a YouTube video of someone conducting enthusiastically to a smartphone. The whole point of choral singing is that it’s something you do – in time, in tune – with other people."

"I also got a bad taste in my mouth from Twitter supporting kinds of speech that I don't particularly agree with, and I began to feel like putting my toys and art there was just adding value to the network. For a while I felt that the tradeoff was that the art I published there still enriched my life and the lives of my friends. At some point, though, I started to feel like the balance got out of whack, and I could do more good by putting my work on alternate networks and giving people a reason to get off Twitter. "

All cultural producers with some degree of audience and influence should really think about this: what structures do I validate by my presence? What and whose structures do I reinforce? What other places can I advantage?

Does anyone here have a basic understanding of German temporary residence processes/requirements? I’m looking a year or more into the future, but basically I’d like to spend several months living in Germany to immerse myself in the language and culture, and bring my family for part of that time. Income won’t be an issue as my job is 100% remote and they don’t care where I live, but ideally I’d want to also work part time tending bar or something to have a broader range of interactions.

Just looking for some more information about what kinds of things I’d have to plan for, etc. if I want to make that happen

Boosts for visibility would be a big help!

Hi! I'm new here, so let me introduce myself. I'm an academic who now works in publishing - a career that I love. I'm married with a 4 year old, and have a cat named Blue. Baking and cooking are my main creative outlets, and I'm thinking about food all the time. I'm always looking through my cookbooks or online, looking for inspiration. I'm technically pescatarian, but eat mostly vegetarian and vegan food. I gravitate towards comforting, nourishing food that's in season. #introductions

Folk in the mood for slabs of finely-wrought(*) might like this new release from Wren. Gizeh Records bringing the black & silver handsomeness again, too. Might make this my payday treat...

(*) -- this is a silly mixed metaphor, isn't it? Never mind, call it an alloy.
