Umayyad Caliphate… Syria
Yes, I know some of my posts don’t use the word ‘empire’ but Wikipedia has them under a list of empires, so they must be correct!
I don’t know why do Wikipdia put “Qin dynasty” in “List of empires” (List of empires - Wikipedia). It should be “Qin Empire” but link to “Qin dynasty” page is ok. Yes, they are correct but need a little fix
We are a tolerant lot here… we fix ‘big’ errors…laugh at, or let small ones go…We sometimes laugh at the ‘big’ ones too!
@PM229 was also my thinking! not sure how Qin Dynasty and Qin Empire would differ… ok, Dynasty i think technically refers to the rulers and people, but they also named the empire after them so I thought, for this game, either would be accepted
@u2371 I guess that’s why I’m a bit confused lol. also Empire of Japan could probably be argued to be either E or J entry as others said, we’re a tolerant fun-loving bunch so we just want to have fun… while doing our best to stick to the rules of course but in the end, fun is the most important thing!
A well-preserved commercial and religious center from the Mesoamerican period!
Ytterby village (Ytterby - Wikipedia, Ytterby: The Village That Chemists Love | Amusing Planet)
It is the place where the first rare-earth element, Yttrium has been discovered in 1787.
(The mine in Ytterby when it was still functioning, circa 1910)
Empire of Japan will be counted as E-start but Japan Empire will be counted as J-start. Since both are official name, so both can be used.
Z… zulu empire
Suggestion for next… a favourite song or piece of music.
Any genre… may have to be the composer or the title. [eg B or E for the example Beethoven’s Emperor concerto if you have a classical one]
Nice and broad topic
I think we already do many topic like that
We often repeat similar topics…I thought one where we give favourites ie personal opinion, rather than searching to fit a category would be a nice change.
But if someone has a better idea… I just wanted a nice straightforward topic that everyone could enjoy
I agree, and I think a music topic would be a nice change. Have not done one in a while. and also agree, a less technical topic based on opinions and personal preference is nice
If most people want another music topic, I am ok with it
I’ll start. I just bought concert tickets for this band at a small club. It was the day after my birthday. Then they moved it to April 2022.
Bad luck, Kaffy. Guess the tickets are now a Christmas present
Mixing up the genres… my favourite classical piece is Beethoven’s Symphony no 7
Come Away With Me by Norah Jones. (Album and song title, also the name of her tour)
Mrs Z bought us tickets to see her live when she came to NZ a few years back. What a fantastic evening. A real treat that broadened my horizons as I’d never heard of her before then.
My favorite Folk metal/power metal song is Diggy Diggy Hole cover version by Wind Rose. (The original song is written by YOGSCAST Lewis & Simon)
Fields of Verdun by Sabaton is my most favorite song in “The Great War” album.
@littleKAF There is also cover version by Apocalyptica too.
I actually really want to hear Apocalyptica cover “Through the Fire and Flame” by Dragonforce. I really want to know if cello can go that fast or not
George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue
A wonderful interface between jazz and classical
