Re: Creating varying voices.

In Librivox voice characterisations, as in life, I am guided by what Harry, Peter and Spike would've done. (For anyone who doesn't get the reference, I am talking about H.E.G.S., the Highly-Esteemed Goon Show). Peter Sellers did most of the voices, Spike had a few, Harry was generally Neddy because ...

Recording Motivation

A lot of people have had some great sayings relating to LV recording in their signature lines over the years, and I thought that we might collect some of them in a thread that might serve a motivating purpose for when one is a bit "recording-reluctant". Here's an example. "To achieve great things, t...

Definitely a funny highlight in this rather problematic plot.

Thanks, Sonia.

My goal is to make one think :hmm: ... then to make one laugh :lol: ... but then to make one think :hmm: .

Re: [OPEN]World's Story 7: Germany, Netherlands, Switzerland - kit

I recall one suit was “Eichel” (acorns), though I don’t remember the rest. I have an idea that this game was also played across the border from Switzerland, bu...

At first you think - oh, why does the salt not dissolve -- and then realize it is because there is so much of it that it can not dissolve anymore! Strange place. Actually, my immediate thought about hypersaline lakes is ... how come the dry salt can lie around in them for a million years, but the m...

Re: [OPEN]World's Story 7: Germany, Netherlands, Switzerland - kit

Rudenz for me please. There was an guy of Swiss extraction who was part of our dance group in Sydney back in the day. I remember us meeting his Swiss-born grandmother. Not recognising her accent, someone asked where it was from. "It's Swiss", she said. "Swiss, huh?", the inquirer said. "Yes", said G...

I seem to recall that genetically the Celts are the closest to the Italics.

Perfectly understandable. We both survive with style. :wink:

After that “Power PL” of six chapters, I can’t help but think that Beth is now transcendentally somewhere in early 20th Century rural Victoria in the Orchard Belt.

I just hope she brought back enough nectarines for everyone. :wink:

Thanks, Beth. :D
