Re: The Prophet, by Kahlil Gibran, pc

Whose wedding didn't (include some Gibran)! Blushing and laughing myself. Mine included the whole "Friendship" chapter. So many metaphors, similes, quotable quotes. Chapters 5 and 6 are uploaded: https://librivox.org/uploads/philchenevert/prophet_05_gibran_128kb.mp3 3:57 https://librivox.org/uploads...

Indeed, it was claimed by Salvationist. I guess he unclaimed it himself.

Is there an "unclaim" procedure?

Re: New! Volunteer CD Covers! - cont.

I just this minute found Dr. Jekyll unclaimed again, so I claimed it again. If Salvationist wants it he can have it, but perhaps he has given it up. I am confused. Thanks for putting my name in Elements of Conchology. I love seashells!

Re: [Fortnightly Poetry] Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening, by Robert Frost - dl

Melissa, welcome to Librivox and thanks for coming out to play with us. What an expressive rendition! Only two things need fixing. Checker reports volume at 80.5, which falls outside of LV's target range (86–92 dB). Recommend you increase amplification by at least +6, or +9 to arrive at LV's median ...

Did you mean to omit "Recorded by William Jones"? You did include your name on Parts 1 and 3 as I recall.

Once this is settled, you will need to re-record your intros, and upload your files again. Lemme know when that is done. We are still in good time because a DPL hasn't shown up yet.

Re: [Fortnightly Poetry] Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening, by Robert Frost - dl

Chrysse, welcome to Librivox and to the Poetry Fortnightly Project. Hope to see more of you around here. Your rendition meets all specs and is PL OK. Nice reading! I noticed a lot of plosives, though, which you can remedy in future recordings by placing the mike at more of an angle to your mouth (so...

Re: New! Volunteer CD Covers! - cont.

Looks like Salvationist and I have both succeeded in claiming the Dr. Jekyl cover. There was only one blank when I claimed it earlier this morning. Now both our claims are showing. Did we press the button simultaneously? If I don't get that one, I'd like to claim the Conchology cover. And is my Loaf...

Re: ~[SOLO]Human Nature and Conduct - Part 2: The Place of Impulse in Conduct, by John Dewey - rap

Okay, Bill, I have adjusted the Intros and Outros to fit mostly* what you submitted. Repeat these aloud a few times to see how they flow, and get back to me with any changes. Your DPL will be checking to see that you follow what is written, so let's give him/her the precise wording you will be using...

Re: The Prophet, by Kahlil Gibran, pc

Thanks, Angelique. Chapter 3, my suspicion is that Gibran didn't think much of marriage! He made it sound binding to the point of suffrage, advising couples to "lighten up". I fear my rendition conveyed that un-ease with "the ties that bind". After all he is a wandering wayfarer, an adventurer, not ...

Alright, David, and welcome to the project! I've put you in the MW for 31 and 32. Let me know if you need any help with "the plot", character names, or anything else.

Re: Covermakers Chat Thread

In Photoshop, you create a duplicate of your background layer, then use the Edit/Stroke function to create your border around the inside edge, however many pixels wide you want it. You can stack strokes too for a contoured frame effect, stroking an ever decreasing width, 10px, then 7px, then 4px, th...

Re: ~[SOLO]Human Nature and Conduct - Part 2: The Place of Impulse in Conduct, by John Dewey - rap

As to your query about redundancy, Bill, I think I see what you mean. Here is how the Intro to Section 1 reads: "Chapter [number] of Human Nature and Conduct, Part 2: The Place of Impulse In Conduct. This is a LibriVox recording. All LibriVox recordings are in the public domain. For more information...
