We'll be eagerly awaiting Avatar Nation's uploads (especially those of us unable to be in attendance)

Today was a lovely day!  Here's Sarah Noel and myself facing down some sort of aerial foe:

The EMP kind of looks like some sort of Pandoran creature or plant, if you filter the colors right.

I saw you two in passing with a group going back to the hotel in passing as I was doing laps looking for a parking stall. Eventually gave up and went to Pike Place Market then back to the ferry back to Bremerton. Yesterday, for me, sucked.

I love Pike Place Market, did you see the "flying fish" stand?

I have, yes. did not get that high into the levels. Entered from the bottom and meandered about for about an hour then left. No spoils.

Bummer. Hopefully you'll find a place to park today. Wouldn't want to miss Paul Frommer's lesson today.  :D

I have no clue when those even start. Gonna tr this from a different approach this time. Wish I had time to find a store that has those SD cards for camera's cause I need one.

Maybe there is one by the Bremerton ferry landing.

Anyways, I am to bed. Figure on getting up around 9 and see what the day brings.

WOU! I have just found this topic and loved all the video logs so far! Irayo si ngaru, ma Alan!

Irayo ma tsmukan :). It is a pleasure to do them so that those who can't make it can feel a part of it.

I have no clue when those even start. Gonna tr this from a different approach this time.

The Na'vi lessons start at 15:00 sharp in the EMP learning Lab for those who have signed up.  See ya there.

Anyway, yesterday was cosplay day.  This must have been the largest gathering of Na'vi in one place on the planet.  All I shall say is that the crowds were not disappointed!  Here's the latest:



Today we will be having Na'vi lessons given by  some of the more proficient speakers and Dr Paul Frommer!!!!  Then in the evening we will be having a final Clan Meal together.

After that our clan will disperse to the four winds...very sad only...until next time..?

 What you said about the final Clan meal, then scattering to the four winds, and Very sad only, brought tears to my eyes, and I STILL have a lump in my throat.  All that, and I wasn't even THERE. I don't think I could handle BEING there, and then having to leave. 
 Thank you for showing us the meetup, if you wanted to bring the essence of it to us, you succeeded so well, that I'm sorry that it is ending tonight, and I am 1,500 miles away as the Taylorcraft Flies.
Eywa ngahu  to you all,

 Please note that the Na'vi lessons with Dr. Paul Frommer start at 3:00pm (Seattle local time) in the meeting room across from the restaurant in the EMP. Please note that one of the Pandora Rules is to be here in your seat and ready to go by 2:55pm, so we can begin promptly on time.

I hoped I could clear my HDD by then, been struggling with it, because of windows forcing its media extractor over the one that actually works with my camera. >=(

@3:30PM I started punching myself in the face.

My advice is to begin drinking heavily.

You are doing a wonderful job on that, brother. The newest video was wonderful to see, it made me smile big time!!

Irayo ma Puvomun :).  I appreciate it.

Afraid I didn't manage to get enough footage to make a video log for yesterday as it was full on videoing with the big video camera.

You will be glad to know that we managed to get the full 2 hour Na'vi lesson with Kayru Pawl.  However, it will require approval before release.

The lesson was excellently structured covering general conversation topics, like who you are, where you come from, what you like and the weather etc.  These were firstly demonstrated by Kayru Pawl with three of the LearnNavi stalwarts: Txonä Rolyu, Ray (sorry mate I can't remember you LearnNavi name - memory like a sieve!) and Prrton, who had done a wonderful job of helping to prepare the lesson and produce the slide presentation.

There was continuous repetition, repetition... ;) ...and then sessions undertaken in pairs to practice.  The Na'vi alphabet was gone through along with how to create the sounds as well as explaining ' ...the glockle stop.  Plus a shed load of other stuff that you will get to see in due course.

After the lesson we all walked across the road back to the hotel for the clan meal, which was a buffet.  Kayru Pawl spent copious amount of time with everyone and there was a heartfelt speech by Rainbowwarrior1993 before he had to leave.  Mikko then gave a closing address with much cheering a clapping along the way.

There was a group photo with Kayru Pawl and also the Avatar couples photo!  Yep, we had no less than 6 couples, three of which were international.

Sooner or later though, you have to wake up and now we have started to return to our home clans, until Toruk Makto calls again...
