_GomiLego_, "junk-language"...

    Imagine a slangy, polyglot _Blade Runner_-esque SVO pidgin/creole with
right-branching noun modifiers and left-branching verb modifiers (tense,
aspect, mood, etc.). Something like:

    "Ju tecno GomiLego, lah?"  (You know GomiLego, eh?)
    "Ja!, mi toc GomiLego bon."   (Yes!, me speak GomiLego good.)

    "Teca bilong ju vita, lah?" (Building belong you life, eh?)
    "Mi tem-numi pod ina cargo-teca sabi ina Burkli."  (Me time-money
room/container in cargo-building beautiful-old in Berkeley.) {I rent a room
in a old, beautiful warehouse in Berkeley.}

    "Otello iz ludo lol!" (Othello is play/game fun)

    "Sono iz Rama. Rama iz sono." (Sound is Godhead. Godhead is sound.)

    "Differena bilong caco e mujzica tem-ina-tem iz ina ju capi tota.
    (Difference belong noise and music time-in/to-time is in you head
    {Sometimes the difference between noise and music is all in your head}

    I like the way GomiLego looks and sounds... this current, more viable
direction for/of my conlang.

    Feedback? Advice? Suggestions? Ideas?
