Hi everyone,

I have three orphaned sections back up for grabs. I'll post in the orphaned chapters thread as well. The sections are:

Sonnets 61-70
Sonnets 111-120
Sonnets 131-140

Quick update: Gord and Nikolle have kindly adopted two of the sections so the only one remaining is 131-140.

OK, I got in a zone, and these just seemed to flow (perhaps from the bard himself). Man, forgot how much I loved this stuff, and it sounds so good spoken out loud.

Here is my section (put under Brad Bush, No URL):
http://home.comcast.net/~bush.brad/librivox/sonnets_131-140_shakespeare.mp3

Tell me when you get this, as I have limited space, and delete chapters from this space when I need to upload others.

Just a note (as I am always reminded by Kara), file names will need to be renamed to have 3 digits in each part (like sonnets_001-010_shakespeare.mp3), or it won't alphabetize properly in some MP3 players. Also, I suggest the first poem number of the section being put in the track number ID tag, as then they will be correctly ordered in some MP3 players.

Wow, that was quick! I've downloaded it so you can go ahead and delete it off your server. I'm listening now and it sounds great; it is easy to just get into a rhythm with the sonnets and roll right through them.

Yes, I realized my error with the filenames after I started the project and decided to change the whole metadata scheme to go with the more readable versions we've been using lately. I've just been changing the tags and filenames when I get them, so no worries!

annie I'll have some files for you today. NOTE: ID3 tags cannot have any ' (apostrophes) otherwise archive.org system goes wonky.

HI annie, here are the files, with data:

sonnets 21-30 - time: 00:11:27
(read by: greg, jean-francois, hugh, oana, adrian, wilson, mike)
http://www.westmountrugby.com/misc/sonnets_21-30_shakespeare.mp3

sonnets 141-154 - time: 00:15:18
(read by: colin, kimberly, devlin, oana, adrian, hugh)
http://www.westmountrugby.com/misc/sonnets_141-154_shakespeare.mp3

and here are a couple of fun things that you could include as bonus tracks:

a chorus version of sonnets 141-148 00:01:23 all mixed into one file:
www.westmountrugby.com/misc/sonnets_141-148_REMIX.mp3

sonnet 28 - 00:02:08 - as read by a very drunk anthony (which must be listened to while reading the text, see below ... note also most of the recordings were done new yrs eve, hence the drunkenness, which i would never condone otherwise)... UPDATE: I made a friend listen to this and he said, that's creepy, which had never occured to me, but just some background, we were all sitting around in a candle-lit cellar reading shakespeare - with some revellers upstairs - and anthony was cracking up laughing so hard he could not contain himself! so he's not getting choked to death or anything, he's laughing throughout!

How can I then return in happy plight,
That am debarre'd the benefit of rest?
When day's oppression is not eas'd by night,
But day by night and night by day oppress'd,
And each, though enemies to either's reign,
Do in consent shake hands to torture me,
The one by toil, the other to complain
How far I toil, still farther off from thee.
I tell the day, to please him thou art bright,
And dost him grace when clouds do blot the heaven:
So flatter I the swart-complexion'd night,
When sparkling stars twire not thou gild'st the even.
But day doth daily draw my sorrows longer,
And night doth nightly make grief's length seem stronger.
