Too much time on his hands

Sometimes, two completely unrelated stories intersect. People from different continents find that they are mysteriously linked to events taking place far away.

First, you’ve got Kire Angelov of Veles, Macedonia, a teenager who, bored with the existing languages of the world, has invented his own. This is after he went throught the trouble of learning English, Italian, Japanese, French, German, Spanish, and an unspecified langauge (probably elvish) used by J.R.R. Tolkein in Lord of the Rings. From

He told Macedonian daily newspaper Utrinski Vesnik: “I’ve almost completed my own language that I’ve called Sinioier. That means the light. I really like speaking it, but at the moment I don’t have anyone to practice with.”

Talk about someone with too much time on his hands. Inventing the language got him a scholarship to an undisclosed American university, though, so I guess it pays off.

The intersecting story, which probably no one will find amusing, is that Styx, on September 25, will be appearing at Sunset Station. While I’m not familiar with the Styx songbook, I listen to enough classic rock on my car radio to know that they recorded a song called “Too Much Time on My Hands,” which might be an anthem for young Kire.
