Thanks Hugh and Peter and nice readings! I thought the concept of books flying out to find people was sort of appropriate for librivox. :) Peter, do you have a personal URL you want included?

I'm at a meeting to help plan the IT infrastructure for a new research facility that's being built here in Barrow. It's cool, at noon the sky isn't as dark as night but it's sort of a twilight. Sadly it's overcast so I haven't seen the aurora.

The static wasn't a problem for yours, hugh, but it seemed awfully quiet to me. Otherwise I like your reading, and the slow pacing of it :)

Okay, thanks Peter!

Yes, me too. It was very quiet but amplifying will probably increase the static. Also, it some ended up as a 64kbps. I converted it on my computer but you may want to check your settings.

Squid, nice job, thanks! Name and URL for the catalog?

Well I was dog tired today after just a few hours sleep last night but my new Plantronics DSP 500 headset/mic arrived today and it was such a treat that I had to practice with it -- even though I swore no recording tonight!

Okay - before you climb all over me, I just want to say that I am not trying to double-dip here! You see, I have this alter-ego that's been bringing me comfort for quite a few years. Matter of fact, I invented him around the time a friend of mine was ailing a few years back.

At first listen, he doesn't seem very polished but I have discovered (during many conversations with him) that he is wise beyond his mutterings. I have big plans to bring him back to life - perhaps in some piece of Mark Twain work once I get past my current obligations. So I wanted a chance to practice him again after a long lay-off.

Well, I'm wind-bagging it now so here you go.

Oh my goodness, Robert, this is brilliant! Yet another great use for weekly poetry: practicing voices, accents, and characters! I have to say, I was laughing out loud when Eugene announced that the poem was by "Yeeeeeeets." :D

As a native Missourian, let me guarantee you that Eugene would be *perfect* for reading some Twain. I'm starting Huck Finn soon and I don't know if I can do the rural midwestern accent as well as Eugene!

Would you please ask Eugene if he would like a URL attached to his name on the catalog page? Thanks.

Just my name is fine. I do have web pages, but they are so old and I don't really feel like fixing them.

You could also just use mailto:kayvan@sylvan.com

I suggest not putting Kayvan's email address on the catalog page -- he'll be spammed to death :)
