Hey hey Ivan! Will do.
Curious how you'd fare on the circle test too.
hey when can you answer my newgrounds dms?

When can you test the circle drawing thing referenced in the post above?
Curious what you'd get.
Thanks, I'll give 'em a review but I'm a little busy overall otherwise, trying to sort things out IRL and with my own sites, just give me a while with those DMs.
my best is 80.8% on the circle
also here is some other neat stuff on newgrounds
Nice, thanks for giving it a shot! I wonder what the norm is, and how much this depends on what mouse you're using/what device... maybe 93%'s unusually high...
Cool, I'll check 'em out too.
here is some other neat stuff
TY, I'll check 'em out...
also go check direct messages please
You're too fast man.
I will, though give me a month or so, gotta sort some stuff out.
btw here is some news post from me
I'll check it out
Also I just posted a news post to educate people about Bulgaria
here is another post related to bulgaria, this one is about a song.
Here is a little something about my name on Youtube
Go to 1:55
well anything to say?
Ah I'm not sure I ever have addressed any Ivan from either Bulgaria or Russia (not in speech), but if I did I might've been getting it wrong then! Just the 'ah' part - we don't have the 'eh' sound here, as seems to be the more English pronounciation, but it's not as long and pronounced an 'ah', it's more like 'ahn' - the 'ah' combined with the 'n', a bit like Thai.
I probably do know how to pronounce these names the Russian/Bulgarian way if I think about it, seen many a movie where they are pronounced that way, but we do have our local (and potentially faulty) alternations over here as the standard...
Good to know!
There is a mission in GTA IV where a russian sends niko to kill another russian named Ivan, and the russian pronounces the name as russians and bulgarians would, but niko pronounces it as Americans or would later after that.
Ahh interesting! The actual main character of the game no less, what a blunder... seems he is voiced by an American actor, Michael Hollick, so I guess that explains that.
Realistically though, if you move to a different country, do you keep the 'real' pronunciation even if the pronounciative norm's different in the country you move to? Like with for example Niko in the story, when he's moved to the US.
For example we have a Finnish friend who's lived in Sweden for some time now, and EVERYONE pronounces her name wrong... even she herself. XD Intentionally, just to adhere to the norm; not stand out too much. The letter P is often pronounced B in Finnish, so Swedes always get it wrong, but it just seems to be socially acceptable.
"When in Greece do like the Greeks", as they say.
Well I would still rather have people pronounce my name like people in countries with the Cyrillic script would.
Well for sure. You do live in such a country too, so no need to adapt to external cultures.
It's a good thing most foreigners you interact with (I assume) do so in writing hmm, though who knows how they pronounce your name in their head...
also here is a bulgarian related one
perhaps you should read this first for explanation for the lion
Oh that's a nice one. XD Gotcha, good to know!
Really a nice homage to the country. Gives a positive impression all around.
did you see the art yet?
Hey man, we're celebrating my dad's 80th Birthday today + I really need to catch up with a voting panel participation this week, so chill a bit with these please, did mention this month would be pretty intense some weeks back...
I do usually get to these as soon as I can.
Happy Smellentinez Day Ivan! Seems she coined a new phrase there, wonder if it means more than it seems to mean...
Chose to move your comment here btw since I'm not sure my dad would appreciate the same humor. You left that on a post with a poem in his honor, celebrating his eighty years and all. Even if it's Valentine's Day too best keep this separate.
go check out the stuff in the last comment
I will, but chill man...
Impending deadlines/visitors this weekend, lots to prepare, I really have no time to spare right now.
Do you remember us talking about Niko pronouncing Ivan like Americans do? well actually Serbs pronounce the name the same way Russians and Bulgarians do.
Ah that's good to know. I guess neighboring countries have a bit more similar languages and dialects; thus pronunciation too.
