Hey there, I'm in the "it's okay as long as it's done well" camp. I myself do readings with accents if it calls for it (I can't even think about doing Dickens without a British accent of some kind) but I'm perfectly happy to not use one. When I do say, British, I tend to adopt a "stage British" acce...

DVD Covers for The Boys

Hey there, Just tootin' the ol' horn... :mrgreen: My friend a while back gave me the complete Hal Roach output of Laurel and Hardy (it looks like a German st and no, I didn't ask where he got 'em).

Hey there, Surprise, it's me. Looks like we have a rash of Poe going around. I don't have the cure, but I don't mind adding to the epidemic. :mrgreen: Anyway, here's my take on The Cask of Amontillado (complete with cheesy Italian accent): File: http://upload.librivox.org/share/uploads/ce/ghohor007...

Damn straight! I got a positive review last year for my reading of A Christmas Carol and I'm still insufferable around my house!

Re: LV and Music: Incompetech

I've read the wiki and it seems kosher, any other problems I should know about? Yes, I'm afraid. This music is not in the Public Domain and cannot be used in Librivox recordings. Is this music in the Public Domain? No. Though some of the baroque and classical compositions are in the public domain; ...

A friend of mine, Julie Hoverson, who produces her own audio podcast ( 19 Nocturne Boulevard ) led me to a site called Incompetech , whose owner, one Kevin Mcleod, produces royalty-free musi...

Hey there, Yes, commercially, it really is a casting process (Action Audio, for instance, will not let any Americans read Ramsey Campbell's works). But here at LV, anything goes (thank goodness). As for me, I feel my voice is better suited to classics like Dickens, Doyle, Carroll, etc., and particul...

Just came back. Bad news: Tevya has been pre-cast (I was going specifically for Tevya). Made me sore because they didn't say a damn thing about it in the email audition notice I got. Only after going to the website I see it. However, I got over it, as I'm in the running for Lazar Wolf and the guy pl...
