Conlangery on hiatus!

Posted by & filed under News.

I apologize for being quiet for so long. Many of you will notice that we have not put out a new episode for a couple months. I (George) am currently working furiously on finishing my dissertation. Between data wrangling, writing, looking for jobs, and playing with a toddler I haven’t had much time or opportunity… Read more »

Posted by & filed under News.

Just pushing out a quick announcement: Conlangery is currently moving to new audio hosting. It looks like the first 31 episodes are going to be unavailable for a little bit.

Posted by & filed under News.

Thought I would put out there, Conlangery episode #64 will probably publish later than usual.  In my haste to move I apparently had not synced my computer to my backup service before moving.  Hence, after several days of syncing my laptop up to said service, I discovered that Conlangery64_rough.aup was no where to be found….

This is the FINAL Album Art (at least for now)

Posted by & filed under News.

Ok, this is absolutely, positively the FINAL version of the new Conlangery album art.  I have tinkered with this thing enough and I’m afraid that if I do anything more to it I will simply screw it up beyond repair.  Unless I decide again to completely change the aesthetic a year from now, or I… Read more »

New Album Art and Site Banner

Posted by & filed under News.

Conlangery has some new stuff.  I wanted to move away from the conlang flag design and come up with something a little more unique for our logo-type stuff, so I solicited some conlanging communities for  translations of “Conlangery” into their conscripts.  The result is new album art and a new site banner. The contibutions I… Read more »
