Re: History of England 1E by David Hume - arb

Wow - I'm amazed at how quickly things have progressed in the last month! FYI I have recorded Sections 14-16 and expect to have them edited within a week or less.

Re: Favorite Movies

This is kind of challenging - it's not as if all the movies in my head are in a database and I can do "Sort by mental rating" :-) So I don't claim these are "really" my favorite movies, but they certainly come to mind: "Margaret" (Kenneth Lonergan writer/director) - this film wasn't released for yea...

Hi, all -

36 minutes, 21 seconds.

I need to finish up a few sections for other projects, but when that's done I'll give my full attention to this one -

Re: ~[FULL/DRAMA] Faust II by Goethe - tg

How are these murmurs going to work - are we all in unison, or are we sort of overlapping individual voices? For example - MURMURS OF THE CROWD. Another fool — for worries new ! — Whence came he? — how did he get through? The old one fell — he's walked his path. — He was a barrel — this, a lath ! Ar...

Re: Modern books that you wish we could record.

I did read Till We Have Faces ages ago... I suppose it wouldn't be bad to re-read it. Anyway, on the subject of C. S. Lewis, something I would wish to do would be his Selected Literary Essays published as a book in 1969. It's lovely writing and is really actually pretty much a series of lectures alr...

Re: ~[OPEN/DRAMA] Faust II by Goethe - tg

I guess I can do Section 11: Murmurs/Murmurs of Crowd (I.2, I.3); Treasurer (I.2, I.4); Satirist (I.3); Poet (I.7); Griffins/First Griffin (II.3.1, II.3.3); The Youths (II.3.5); Bully/3 Mighty Men (IV.1, IV.2, V.3).

What does a Griffin sound like? More lionly or more eagly?

Regarding non-European popes: For that matter, Peter was from Galilee, no?, which is in Asia.... and mightn't there have been one or more from what is now the Asian part of Turkey?

Re: background noise that fits?

This is an interesting idea. Are there any works in progress that involve cars driving into and out of a parking lot, or droning appliances?

Re: Dante

I suppose that this means something like "For unbelievers [non-Christians], the important thing is to produce a translation that says exactly what Dante was saying, rather than a beautiful and powerful translation which might lead people to actually share Dante's vision and seek God's grace."

Re: What Shakespeare Heard (maybe ;)

That Macbeth clip really was interesting - and it certainly does sound to me like someone doing an "Irish" accent. "The dagger toward me hand" ... "pro- say -ding" for "proceeding", for instance. On the other hand, wouldn't Macbeth have been played with a Scottish accent - from the eleventh century?...

Re: [Group]The Deluge (vol. 1)/Henryk Sienkiewicz-arb

One other question: In the introductory note "Titles of Rank and Address", the translator writes, "The highest military rank in Poland was grand hetman; next in order came field-hetman [ hetman polny - Theo], which has appeared inadvertently in these volumes as full hetman." When we are reading this...
