Re: Things I will never understand.

...why otherwise normal people use "big" words when testifying in court ... e.g., "I observed him as he proceeded to exit the vehicle" instead of "I saw him get out of the car." Instantly made me think of that episode in "Friends" where Baby kangaroo Tribbiani (sorry, Joey) uses a Thesaurus to writ...

Re: Annoying words

my current annoying word is "statistics." Almost every time it crops up in a narration say "sadistics" I think there might have been one time I left it in for the finished take :twisted:

Re: What is your studio like?

My studio is my little log cabin that I had built at the bottom of my garden when we moved into our house 2 years ago. It is my sanctuary and also the place the good lady "B" banished all my books and computers to. In front of me, behind my pc is a large shelf full of books which helps to dampen the...

Re: Things I will never understand.

what 99% of the items are that always seem to be trending on twitter and why there isn't a "for Dummies" guide to the slang that goes around on there (EG snowdrop, woke, BLM etc, things that never seem to crop up in real life conversations)

Re: Don't you hate...

windows updates. I came down to my cabin to do some recording yesterday and saw that my computer had an update to apply. So I thought I would "re-start and apply updates" while I pop back up to the house to make myself a coffee. Well, 3 hours later and the PC had just finished updating but I now had...

:lol: It sounded good to me... but it's 45 years since I studied Latin :shock: (I was an infant...). I thought you were going to tell me you taught it or something.
All smoke and mirrors. Some of the passages I literally recorded one word at a time 😄

So assigned! You get a couple of months to complete it, but if you find it's going to take longer, you can ask for an extension. Thanks Lynnet. I've already recorded the first paragraph.

Re: (Lectures) The Religious Experience of the Roman People by W. Warde Fowler - lt

Hi there. I notice that Chapter 9, Lecture IX ritual continued is still open. Could I claim it? It might take me a week or two to record it though as I'm a bit swamped at work. I've been away from narration and all my hobbies for the past couple of months due to real life getting in the way, meaning...

Re: [Weekly Poetry] A Canadian Song by Susanna Moodie - dl

Life has dragged me away from Librivox and my other hobbies over recent months thanks to not being at home for long periods due to work!! Anyway, I'm hoping I can get back into this more regularly. Here is my attempt to blow the rust off...
