Actually you are correct again. I was confused because the file name shows Act 2 - I'll change Act 2 back to Act 3 but we should let Cori know about the incorrect file name.

Listening at 7.30am is much too early and I get easily confused :oops:

Oh good, Brian, as long as it's YOU being confused and not me, all is well. :D
Metaflower mentioned that she forgot to say the lines marked ALL. Do you recall if anyone else said those lines? We don't have to have everybody, really, as long as somebody said them (preferably more than one somebody).

Metaflower -- how would you like to be credited in the catalog?

I think there is only one line marked ALL for the players and Snug and Flute have read them, Snout and Starveling have not. They are responding to a comment by Quince.

There is another line marked ALL but this applies to the Fairies.

That'll work fine I think, Brian. Thanks for checking!

Cori -- Act 1 Scene 1 is ready for editing except for your part. (In case you have your own lines ready and are just waiting to splice them into the final files.)

Wow!
I am eagerly awaiting to see the finished product!
Hopefully the play will be available for downloading on June 23! It would be great!
Keep up the good work!

Dear goodness, unfortunately, no, my lines aren't recorded yet. I have ... HOURS 'til the end of the month deadline, right?!


(And a chapter of my solo to record and edit and release tonight, work, then a podcast to do tomorrow, as well as visiting with a friend to collect keys to catsit over the weekend, Friday after work I do the first cat-visit ... argh! Will crowbar in recording time somewhere -- so I can get a little reassurance of prooflistening here too.)
There's honestly no such thing as a stupid question -- but I'm afraid I can't rule out giving a stupid answer : : To Posterity and Beyond!

Apologies for the delay. I've been desperately ill the last few weeks. As you'll hear on the recordings my voice isn't 100% recovered but it kind of works OK for a part like Bottom. If you don't like it though then I will understand. One other thing - if you want any recordings of Bottom doing donkey noises then let me know - you can then insert them wherever you like in the recording if you think it appropriate!

Anyway recordings can be found here. Let me know if there's any problems:

Thanks, Simon! Bottom sounds great (and I'm glad you're better!) BUT... these are saving as documents, not mp3 files. Would you send the mp3's to the Librivox uploader, and then they can be spliced to the others without Cori or me going through any extra steps to convert them? (See first post for login info if you don't have it.) I appreciate it. :)

p.s. Donkey noises -- now that would be cool! Cori, what do you think, can you find a place to put them if Simon records some?

Bizarre! They shouldn't be saving as documents. They're 100% mp3s. You should just be able to add the file extension when you save it if it's not working....

Nevertheless, I'll have a look at the uploader instructions in a second. It'll be tomorrow now before I can record any more - i.e. donkey sounds.

cheers,

Simon
