Now that will get interesting. I haven't heard anything on that coming up...
Answers, here we come!

A littttle jumpy at the beginning. Kind interesting but I was left with a lot of, "wait, what?" The language word bits probably need a little bit more of an intro too (one even overlapped a segment :(), they kinda just jump in. Also, the Paul Frommer message from me was extremely sudden, it was a little out of place... I guess some of these things need a little more of an intro. Also, weird hiss in the language section, somehow I bet this is my fault.

Anyway, all that aside, awesome podcast! This is becoming quite interesting and shows a lot of promise as well as a lot of really great points. CSI Pandora was really neat (if a little shaky in the acting) and the review of Losers was VERY well done. The advertisements were hilarious and really well done. The language section ended up quite good, I don't think I butchered my pronunciation too much :P

Can't wait for the next one.

P.S. Oh, yeah, and the bloopers and ending were txantsan!

We need more production time. We had soooooo many technical issues that we were backed up against the wall. I will spend the next month tracking down elements to smooth out the transitions between segments. ALSO: I have stomped on the heads of cast members whose echoes and mics and other issues have caused editing Hell. Some of the best tidbits recorded did not make it into the final cut--simply due to the wonders of trying to edit a flat file (try to dig out words when people are talking over each other).

AND NO HATING THE ACTORS! (we are lucky to have anyone foolish enough to work with us at this point!)

But, all in all, for a handful of amateurs, "take 3" is not a bad start. We will keep you hooked with our dumb commercials while we steadily improve the quality of our recordings.

Attention investors! Prepare to increase the value of your portfolio by...a teeny tiny bit!

edit: This whole damn segment is actually the most hilarious thing I've ever heard. Holy crap! I demand that the author/actors of this segment come forward immediately and accept a fresh batch of karma cookies!

HAHA!! This was tons of fun to be a part of, and tons of fun to listen to the commercials... and CSI.... I'm holding on to my complimentary lead poisoning kit for dear life.

Can you give us the various lyrics for olo'eyktan tìming oeri smuktu? (???) I think I got that wrong here. Leader just gave me ... uhhh, siblings?

<3 <3 this is an awesome thing we have goin' on!

Oel ngati kame is something you don't say to people you never met? ^^ But they say it to the animals they just killed?

What, people can make text comments while you record this? Where?

What, fìtsenge is pronounced "fitseengeh"? I thought it was fitsehngeh. Isn't the E pronounced "eh" and not "ee" ? ???

ma judytuna: I think it was olo'eyktan tìming oeri tukru (the leader gave me a spear)

They say it to animals as a form of respect.  You wouldn't go around saying "Oel ngati kameie" to everyone you meet.

And fìtsenge is with the "eh" sound.

This is from Prrton (in a reply to my original posting of the Old Mc Donald song):

This is too fantastic! Txantslan nìhawng leiu nang!  ;D

You totally inspired me, so I've stolen your idea and thanks to the incredible flexibility of Na'vi word order, I offer a musical reply.



   Olo’eyktánta túkrut-tìmél
   Iray--Iray--oooo

   Ha oéyä túkrúfá tskxékeng óe
   Iray--Iray--oooo

   Set takuk mìfìtseng

   Ult’ ’eko mìsatseng

   fìtseng takuk, tsatseng ’eko

   Takuk takuk! Makto KO!

   Olo’eyktánta túkrut-tìmél
   Iray--Iray--oooo



nìÌnglìsì



   I just got a spear from the Chief of our clan
   Thank you. Thank you. Soooo.

   So I practice with my spear wherever I go
   Thank you. Thank you. Soooo.

   Now I strike over here,

   And atack over there.

   Here a strike, there attack!

   We’re off to ride, so watch your back!

   I received a spear from the Chief of our clan
   Thank you. Thank you. Soooo.



AND, I believe the next verse might start with:

   Nári si, mìsátseng lu palulukán!
   Zéne set kivä KO!
...

I predict that this and expanded future versions of this will be sung (rather LOUDLY) at conventions across our fair planet.  ;)

KP, how do you set this up so people can subscribe to it on itunes?  I've had a request for that with the lessons I'm working on, and have never done anything like a podcast before.

BTW, y'all need to learn to pronounce Na'vi. :)  And to answer an unasnwered question...

A "voiced" t, k or p, would be d, g or b respectively.  Which of course Na'vi doesn't have.  The difference between a voiced and unvoiced consonant is one you make a sound with your vocal cords for, the other is just the air moving that makes the sound.  But otherwise the letters are the same.  Some other unvoiced/voiced pairs are s/z or f/v.

And finally, an unreleased consonant, you can't just say it by closing your throat.  That would just be a glottal stop, and would not differentiate between the sound of t, k and p.  Closing the lips does change the sound to make it distinctly P-like.

See? This is why we NEED a real Na'vi language expert on the show--even as a guest, or segments that can be inserted. My MAIN purpose is to entertain, and spread the Avatar love to casual fans, who can enjoy our dumb little show and get more serious about Avatar and Na'vi, and the philosophies involved (or in the case of episode #4--they can drink the corporate Kool-Aid we will be dishing out by the bucketful).

I am "all for" Na'vi instruction. Personally, I would like to see it done in an enjoyable way, but serious Na'vi language instruction is a must, and should be undertaken. I fought and fought with the whole iTunes thing. I finally found a free service that covers everything: Prep your lessons. Get them in order (at least mentally) so you know where you will be going with these, and then make sure they are in mp3 format with all of the tags in place. You can do this easily by opening them up in iTunes and tagging them up there by right clicking on them and clicking "Get Info" and filling in the blank spaces. That will carry over into iTunes.

Now, the easiest way to get listed on iTunes and not have to keep updating it every episode is to sign up at podomatic (here: https://www.podomatic.com/path/signup_basic). It only takes a few seconds. Go for the free account. Add your recorded mp3's and podomatic will walk you through your iTunes subscription process. VERY IMPORTANT: You must subscribe to your podcast on iTunes.

If you don't subscribe, no one will find it. Every podcast has to have that first subscriber to kick-start Apple's attention-span. Then you can start promoting it. We have a few hundred friends on FB, and a crappy following on Twitter. If you come out with a serious lesson plan podcast series I would be more than happy to promote it for you both on the show and on FB etc. Also, podomatic will show you a few directories to list your podcast in. Don't forget the ping services as well. Everything stated here should get you up, out, and a few hundred followers fairly quickly.

Ftiafpi's usually pretty good, I'm surprised he got those pronunciations a little off.  Tìng had contacted me way back when about something, but then got busy and I never heard anything more.

I actually already have two episodes finished and up for download.  It's easy to make something when you don't have to coordinate people together and try and edit lots of different sources with different acoustic qualities, sound levels, noise levels, etc.  But on the other hand, my stuff is pretty boring, like listening to a lecture.  Because that's basically what it is.

Thanks for the tips on itunes!  I'll see what I can get going.

okay--now you made me do it. I just went on FB and told everyone to expect a REAL Na'vi lesson podcast series ("in the works!") so you have a fandom now. Don't let them down, as I hear they have pitchforks and torches. The people are demanding audio Na'vi lessons!
