DSM

is creating Linguistics Content on YouTube

Hello! Hej! Bonjour!


My name is Emma-Louise and I am a "wannabe linguist" from England. That's another way of saying I wasn't cool enough for University. They do say honesty is the sexiest trait.
In a sentence, I am truly madly deeply obsessed and fascinated with words and languages. Since 2015, I've been sharing my excessive interest in this subject over on my YouTube channel, DSM.

Like a lot of creatively-inclined filthy millennials, I want nothing more than to do this for a living. I know the feeling of waking up to a job I hate, and that's not what I want to die doing. That's why this Patreon exists!

As a thank you for your financial support - which is never ever mandatory - you'll have access to exclusive and behind-the-scenes content you won't find anywhere else. For more information, please see the Reward Tiers section to see which one tickles your fancy the most!

A'ight, let's be real - asking for money, in any capacity, sucks. Who cares if it's paying your rent, right? No one ever wants to be That Guy. I get it.

What are you doing with my money, you heathen?

$1: Budveiser The Bank.
Okay, hear me out. In our flat, we have a giant money box in the shape of a bottle of Budweiser. Except it's Budveiser, because it was made very cheaply in China and copyright is expensive. Anyway, we keep all of our spare change in there; for emergencies, for savings, for trips to the corner shop at 1am because the cupboards are empty. It's a lifesaver, and it all adds up. So will your pledge. Thank you.

$2: My Electric Bill.
The building I live in is really cool in that it's still stuck in the 90s, so we keep our fridges running by shoving a few quid on a key once or twice a week. So, thanks for keeping my lights on! And for keeping Budveiser fed.

$5: Lunch!
Man cannot survive on 39p energy drinks alone. Confucius said that. You don't have to take me out to dinner to please me, but I will remain ever thankful should you pledge enough to cover my lunch costs while I stare at a screen for 90% of the week. Seriously, you're the bomb. This sandwich is delicious.

As time goes on, I'd really like to add extra reward tiers and give you as much bang for your buck as I can accommodate. But for the time being, thanks an absolute million - from myself, Toya & our 3 wonderful cats - for supporting me and my silly videos in any way you're able.
Jag älsker dig. Je t'aime. I love you.

- Emma
