Nerdy thought for the day

Friends and I will form a heavy metal band whose songs are all about Chinese paleolinguistics. We will be called “Homophonous Weapon.”

(After we break up and re-form for one last farewell performance, we can call the concert album “The Final Obstruent.”)

    Last year, my friends and I formed a rap band called Bling Dynasty, but we never got around to practicing… I did right the lyrics to Hot Mama Huhu, though.

  2. Nice! For a while, I was thinking of founding an all-foreigner band (to be called 黑户, ‘Los Illegales’) that would dress up like migrant workers, tour on blue flatbed trucks from Henan, and sing songs like 姑娘,我要跟你非法同居 “Girl, I Wanna Be Your Illegal Cohabitant.”

    I’m kind of interested in the precise Chinese for “homophonous”, can’t make a good guess.
