Re: [YA/stories] Junior Classics Vol. 4: Heroes and Heroines of Chivalry, by W Patten - jo

Thanks, that is comforting to hear (although I hope you won't be too offended if I don't take all of your praise as completely genuine - but I think that's just the way I am). The thing is, among those other factors, I'm also unhappy with a recording taking a long time. I've got other hobbies, and i...

Re: [YA/stories] Junior Classics Vol. 4: Heroes and Heroines of Chivalry, by W Patten - jo

Sorry, Foon, I'm going to quit on section 9. I thought I'd enjoy it, but there's several factors that ruin the experience for me... I mean, that doesn't particularly concern the current thread... Anyway, the process of recording, and its anticipation, have been getting more and more stressful and le...

Re: [YA/stories] Junior Classics Vol. 4: Heroes and Heroines of Chivalry, by W Patten - jo

I'll do section 9, I guess? I think I've overcome my PTSD from the first recording, and I can't really get into anything else on the forum... I kind of wish that recordings were instead assigned to me, according to my abilities, because there's a lot of stuff to choose from, on several different sub...

Should be section 8, at 9:12 - https://librivox.org/uploads/knotyouraveragejo/juniorclassicsvol4_08_patten_128kb.mp3 I also had to de-amp because somehow I managed to beat my previous efforts by 7 db, I think...

Re: [YA/stories] Junior Classics Vol. 4: Heroes and Heroines of Chivalry, by W Patten - jo

Thanks for your response, Foon. Can I then get just section 8? I think I've pretty much come to terms with that one name, and I'd feel bad about wasting that valuable knowledge :roll: ... But, well, you know, if I take anything more, I think I'll be too anxious about taking too long or failing in so...

Re: [YA/stories] Junior Classics Vol. 4: Heroes and Heroines of Chivalry, by W Patten - jo

I don't know if anyone will be able to empathize, but I'd like to take something, but in every section I come across names that I don't know how I should pronounce. In section 8 it's "Nacien"... And in section 61 - well, my preference would be to pronounce all names the way they are in original Span...

Re: [DUTCH] Just a few names

You've 100% already found the answers somewhere else, but: "Pieter" exactly the same as the English "Peter". "De Hooch" - "e" is a "schwa" sound, so I suppose it's as if you were pronouncing "the" in a racist manner; "Hooch" is the German "Hoch", if you've heard expressions with that; alternatively,...

Re: ~[Children] Silver Princess in Oz, Thompson-ag

I did my first fortnightly just a few days ago, and this looks really fun, but... well, I'm in Russia, where it's the 70 years copyright limit. So, I kind of feel that I'm breaking the law already by looking at the Gutenberg page. Am I correct in assuming that I'm ineligible? Maybe the FAQ and the d...

Re: [Fortnightly Poetry] Women I'm Not Married To by Franklin Adams - dl

I don't think it makes sense to use my real name, at least not in the (majority) English-speaking part of the internet. I mean, I've kind of gotten excited about the idea that people could find me as an audiobook reader, but nobody is going to look me up in the Roman alphabet... Anyway, put me down ...

Re: [Fortnightly Poetry] Women I'm Not Married To by Franklin Adams - dl

Yeah... So if I don't want to inflict my real name on anyone who might need to type it in somewhere (especially since I sometimes get confused with how it should be transliterated), if I instead use my username... well, then it won't match my initials. Is that alright? And if so, do I need to redo m...
