fishlore is a cult....
Cult defined:

A cult is a religion taken from orthodox faith and changed around/ A cult can also be a religious group whose teachings are very odd.


BTW, I did not read a dictionary for that.

BTW, I did not read a dictionary for that.
It refers also to parts of non/pre-christian religions, like in roman, greek, persian or celtic religions and is also still used in hinduism. It is used because often times not all Gods in a pantheon have the same relevance to everybody, as there is no canon and no central institution. So there are for example the The Cult of Iuppiter, the Cult of Dionysos, the Cult of Teutates and so on. Only the romans ever got close to a centralized cult for their Emperor (and that's where the catholic church got their centralization from). "Cultus" in latin means as much as "way of life" or "reverence" or "labor".
There is also the term of mystery cults, which were cults that were not public, which was seen as unusual and often as dangerous by the Romans. Christianity has taken over that stance when it became mainstream in the late Roman Empire itself, though technically it started out as a cult itself. Technically any believe system can be called a cult.

If you talk about cult in a modern sense the most prevalent definition is either descriptive "believe system based on a charismatic figure" or as a demeaning term for a "believe system that is not mainstream". This has to do with the derivation from mystery cult as explained above.

I studied stuff like this for years.

Hey NevermindIgnoreMe When you rated my music post “creative”, that was exactly my 2000th reaction score. You just gave me a trophy!

Now I feel sad that I only have 2,000, it seems like such a small amount once you get there.

Our SS teacher is making us do some "Living History" Project where we have to record events, and we have to be creative. bleh

Forced creativity is not creativity!

Oh, and our science teacher keeps getting the days wrong because we had Monday off. I don't blame hime though, not even I can remember sometimes.

Living history... what a great past time that was... I had a full attire for 3 different regions and time frames. 200BC Gaul, 8th century Irish, 9th century Norwegian. Almost all of the stuff I've sold 4 years ago.

Where is there forced creativity? I only see a chance to do something the way you like it and not the way your teacher or a book want it. Why not write about Covid from the perspective of a monk of the 13th century? Or about the end of the cold war form the view of a survivor of the 100 years war?

Also SS means something very different and historical to me. Makes me shiver.

Not including the three I just turned in, my big end of the year projects (though the memorizing is easy) :
Memorize three poems,
A project on 15-16th century music,
A research paper

Paper and poems due next week, music due the week after.

Oooo, that’s the good stuff. Bach and Vivaldi (some of my favorites) were late 16th century to early 17th century. You are too early for Paganini though, you should have covered him, he was more late 17th century I think.

I'm still working on it, I'm going to cover instruments, styles, and artists of the time. I'm really liking Claudio Monteverdi. His music was kind of a precursor to opera, and it's sounds awesome.

I can't do those unfortunately, it's supposed to be Shakespearean time, which ends at about 1620 around his death. But Bach would be great to do if I could.

Also, any ideas of what I could do presentation wise other than visual aids and possibly recordings/YouTube videos would be appreciated. I can't afford a lute or shawm or a lyre unfortunately. I really wish I could though, the lute is so beautiful and sounds lovely, it has always intrigued me.

Little late (for your timeframe and the project) but the works of Michael Praetorius - Wikipedia helped me a lot when it came to learning my instruments. He did a lot documenting of the instruments of his time.

Oh it is. Though you'll have to wait quite a while to see the worst trilogy, you'll know all about it if the bestest thread ever becomes a trilogy. If. Just don't hold your breath

In the meantime, the random is about to reach its peak. And we will exceed a trilogy before long too

If only we could all assume such things. Fishlore would be a far better place. One of these days I'll have to post my pearls kissing one another over there and see if anyone comments on that.

If you posted it then I likely saw it, but I look forward to seeing it again when you enter it (and to see which one it is). Good luck with the contest
