Of course it was only a matter of time until I did this.

I found the audiobooks. The first one I happened to click on is apparently "The Outsider" [изгой, izgoy, I assume in the sense of "outcast"], an old favorite of mine. If there is a reading of the translated "Fungi from Yuggoth and other poems," that would probably be a pretty fun one. And I mean, honestly, I think this language lends itself to the subject matter.

Not that I can understand more than the occasional word, but this is the sort of thing that will (gradually) help change that.

THIS IS THE BEST IDEA I'VE EVER HAD.

Sounds like you're having fun. :) It reminds me of when I used to try to read manga in Japanese and would be really excited whenever I understood a word or two. I never got very far with that, but on the other hand I did get better at the operatic languages. I hope your Russian-studying is successful!

I do have fun with it! :) I just don't have the time to take an actual Russian class, but I pick up words here and there with listening to/watching stuff, so I'm slowly building up a tiny vocabulary.
