One of my favourite German words: verschlimmbessern.
It’s like a morphological ‘fusion’ of verschlimmern ‘to make worse’ and verbessern ‘to improve’.
It means to make something even worse while trying to improve it.
- schlimm = bad, awful, terrible, nasty, evil, ill
- besser = better (comparative to gut = good)
verschlimmbessern = to disimprove
This describes my life fairly well.
I love the “LEGOness” of German. Wanna make a word? Just join two other words that convey what you want to mean together!
Susumu Hirasawa/P-MODEL Gear
This is an attempt to list gear used by Hirasawa (and other P-MODEL members) throughout the years; question marks indicate stuff that I’m not sure on. If you have any extra info, please inform me; right now I’m trying to find info on the Keyboard magazine autumn 2010 issue (vol.370), there’s an interview with a bunch of P-MODEL members there and I think there might be some gear info in there.
