WE HAVE ORPHANS

I've adopted a few, but there are several left.

Larry,

Happy to MC this for you.

MaryAnn
Just thought I'd give you an update on this one that has languished to long.

I've looked at each of the files that had PL notes unattended. Many of them I was able to edit successfully -- volume, silences, repeats, misplaced author, etc. Some of the small pronunciation issues I let slide, still being withing the bounds of standard PL criteria, I believe

PMs to the people with long over due claims went unanswered. Consequently, this left a handful of orphans, of which I adopted a number. I have another person who will help PL and pick up some orphans as well,

I just can't wait for Kim to PL these. She sometimes has taken months to respond, even after PMs. It's not been the best experience.

I should have been more aggressive in wrapping this up, but sometimes it just felt like running in sound. But, I expect to have this ready for the catalog within the next few weeks.

Oh, I had that on my list, but didn't get it in the MW. All, the better to have you in there, though :mrgreen:

Larry,

I'll remove Kim as DPL. She's been away for personal reasons for a while now. Sorry that I did not catch earlier that she was PLing this project.

Time to finish this long running project. I've taken a few more sections and have them recorded.
If anyone feels inclined to take the remaining long section, please do so. Otherwise, I will take it once I have the rest uploaded.

Section 59 is PL OK...sort of. I don’t know how picky you are about this.
At the beginning of the recording, read the abbreviated "LibriVox disclaimer":
"[poem title], by [author's name, date and place if given (found at the end of the poem, or you may need to check the Table of Contents)] read for LibriVox.org"
The date and place are included at the end of the poem and not as part of the intro.

Oh, my! I wrote that, and just slipped a gear. :oops: I'll fix that.
Thanks for catching this. :D

Hi Larry,

I came across this and thought I'd PL some of your sections since it looks like you're mainly just waiting on PL, hope that's ok :D

83 is PL OK :thumbs:

84:
0:13 there are two lines of the poem missing here
"Its touch wakes feelings far above
The lover’s fondest clasp."
Foon - Real life is getting in the way of LV, will be slow until all is back on track, please bear with me!


Readers needed:
Dramatic Reading: The Curious Case of Benjamin Button
Folklore/legends: Arabian Nights Vol. 11
Play: Zeus the Tragedian

Oh, thank you so much, Foon!
Yes, we lost our DPL and I'm trying to finish this up, so your help is greatly appreciated.

I'll see about those missing lines. Maybe I accidentally edited them out, but I'll get it corrected.
I have the last longer poem ready to edit, so maybe we can get the one in the catalog this month!
